Ynys Hywel Activity and Nature Centre is hidden away in the beautiful Sirhowy Valley Country Park and provides an amazing learning experience outside the classroom or working environment. It’s an extremely fun place to go, but it can also really help boost your confidence and set you up ready for whatever life throws at you. From half-day or full-day programmes to residentials, we cater for all corporate, local authority and individual clients to suit all groups and budgets, prices start from £10 per person. What is more, all our packages are exclusive, meaning your group will have dedicated staff for your visit, so we can guarantee you our undivided attention to ensure that you all have the best time ever. Why not motivate, energise, boost morale or simply reward your staff or pupils with a bespoke day of activities at Ynys Hywel.


Having featured this attraction in the last Top 100 Attractions in Wales Book back in 2015, Ynys Hywel has changed somewhat and I truly think for the better. Having loved the site last time, I absolutely love it this time and with a brand new team at the helm, great things are on the way for this activity & nature centre. Depending on how big a group you are, they can cater for all groups of varying sizes, from small families, to school groups, nothing is out of their remit. What I have always liked so much about Ynys Hywel, is that it allows families come together and be families, instead of being stuck on a mobile device of some sort, families can come and experience the outdoors and see just exactly what being a family means. The facilities are good, the food is great and the staff really know what they’re doing, so what are you waiting for?
