An introduction to Parc Le Breos Riding and Holiday Centre
Parc-Le-Breos is a 19th Century Hunting Lodge set in 70 peaceful acres, once the deer park of William de Breos, Lord of Gower.
Approached by a mile long drive that meanders through woodland glades - carpeted with wild flowers and bluebells in the spring and surrounded by 450 acres of deciduous woodland, this is a perfect place to unwind.
Guest bedrooms range from cosy doubles to spacious family rooms - most are ensuite and all have T.V. There are laundry and drying facilities, storage for bicycles, boats, surfboards and any other sporting equipment you may wish to bring. There are also kennels available for dogs.
Enjoy our home cooking, made with fresh fruits, salads and vegetables from the garden, served in the relaxed atmosphere of our four period dining room.
Unwind by log fires in the cooler months. Relax on the terrace or by the carp pond on warm summer evenings. Stroll by the lake and watch the fish rise and the ducks feed, as swallows and bats skim the water. Relax in the lounge, play in the games room or barbecue amongst the oaks by the lake.
