Where you'll be

You will be working in beautiful oak and ash woodland with its own stream, as well as in a light and airy workshop. The venue is totally off the beaten track, with spectacular views of the Brecon Beacons National Park. You will need a car, bicycle or horse to reach our venue, as the Tories have completely dismantled our rural public transport sevice.
