Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer is now open!

Dolygaer will open for business on 01/06/2015 after some significant investment and a major clear up to bring the centre back to life and help visitors to enjoy the best of the Brecon Beacons! The centre will offer schools, families, friends and corporate groups the chance to enjoy a wide range of activities from canoeing and dragon boat racing to gorge walking, sailing, hill walking and orienteering. 

Visitors will be able to choose from one of three accommodation options during their stay which consist of a tranquil campsite next to the river, the bunkhouse Lodge which sleeps up to 44 people and a comfortable Cottage for smaller groups and families which sleeps up to 8 people. Visitors will be able to completely customise their visit and select which activities and accomodation they would like and how many. 

Mike Smith is the new Centre Manager for Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer. With a rich background in outdoor activities, Mike has travelled the world and been an activities instructor in many countries. He is a senior instructor in canoeing, kayaking and rafting and holds qualifications to train others as a Water and Rescue Technician. Mike's favourite previous job was as leading a five day rafting expedition around New Zealand. His favourite activities are water sports and climbing which he hopes to share with visitors to Dolygaer. 

Lisa Boore is the centre's Activities Manager who has 11 years experience as an instructor in the great outdoors! Lisa's favourite activities are caving and yacht racing, and she is looking forward to introducing visitors of Dolygaer to some of the exciting activities and programmes which will be available.
