Have a mini adventure and take some cute little Kune Kune pigs for a walk along a beautiful valley in the Brecon Beacons, followed by a “Pignic” of tea/coffee/squash and cakes! Great fun for people wanting a fun and engaging few hours in the countryside with these friendly little animals. Have the opportunity to learn all about their welfare and their life in this scenic area. This is the best present you could ever give to a pig lover and people of all ages (especially adults!) love this unique day out. 

Individual spaces are £35 per person for a join-in session with up to 8 people, and from £140 for private sessions (this includes 4 spaces but you can add in additional spaces at £35 per person) – private sessions are only available if there are no prior bookings on that date.

If you would like to buy undated Piggy Walking vouchers as a present for a pig lover, you can look forward to a special day out & UK staycation with friends and family in 2024. Undated gift vouchers are available view the calendar to book a specific date. The vouchers can be used against any of our experiences.

Day Out with the Pigs

The experience includes being introduced to the piggies, then you and the cute little pigs will have a yomp along the valley with the route adjusted slightly according to weather & ground conditions. You will be walking along fairly level ground that can be muddy at times, possibly with some uneven areas. If it’s not too muddy, you’ll have a quiet potter with the pigs across scenic meadows and take a paddle with the pigs in the river Senni.

After returning to the smallholding, you will have ample refreshments whilst taking in the lovely scenery.

How to Book your Piggy Walk

Please enquire about dates to suit you if your preferred date is not shown in the calendar, as this is usually possible as long as your piggy walker and the pigs are available. You can book individual places or we can take bespoke small group bookings. 

Sundays, and some week days are generally possible late March to October as long as the weather isn’t too inhospitable, and Saturdays are usually also possible during school holidays. Group sizes are a maximum of 8 people unless you book as your own private session. We offer a “Private Piggy Walk” version if you would like to guarantee the walk just for you! We can also arrange on demand for the route to be more suitable for those with limited mobility.

We recommend this is suitable for children over 6 years as long as they are not boisterous. We do not offer discounts for children as this would mean that our adult prices will need to be increased. Most of our visitors are adults but quiet animal-loving children are very welcome – it is preferable that children are booked on private walks where possible.. Babies who are not walking are free of charge – we do recommend private walks for families so children and the pigs can get used to each other and communicate in a kind and safe, interactive way. The piggies are pets but not petting farm animals so can react to sudden noise or movements – they enjoy their walks in company and meeting our walkers. 

This is a smallholding and the pigs are pets – they will see out their natural lives under the gentle care of their owner. Should weather conditions be averse, we’ll be in touch to reschedule or refund. Slightly rainy weather is fine but with extreme heat, cold or very wet windy weather, the pigs will retire to their sty. Their welfare is paramount but they do live in Wales and normal rain is fine!

What to Wear on your Walk

Long sleeves & trousers are recommended plus strong insect repellent in summer as there are horse flies that bite!

Wellies or waterproof boots advised, (even in summer as the pigs will be muddy even if the ground isn’t). Kindly note that the actual walk is normally about an hour through level easy walking, but the pigs sometimes want to go home earlier or later! In summer months if conditions allow, the walk will sometimes take you to the river where you will be able to paddle with the piggies but we obviously cannot predict when this will be possible.

Please book through the calendar on this page or enquire for specific dates. If you wish to buy an undated voucher, please use the Buy a Voucher button either buy specific or general Gift Vouchers as great special presents. All our vouchers come with information and a gift card as standard. If you wish to buy a “Private” Piggy Walk for a specific date, these are only available where there are no prior bookings.

CAN DOGS COME ALONG?

No! Sorry, but dogs are not allowed on our walks as they can stress the animals. When it is hot, we do not have any shady places to park, so please do not assume you can leave your dog in the car while you visit. Please contact us if you would like a recommendation for a dog sitter.

CAN I SEE THE DONKEYS?

The donkeys are at a different location about 30 minutes’ drive away, so please bear this in mind if you wanted to book both activities on the same day. 

CAN I REACH YOU BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT?

No! We are in a rural area with a tiny population that doesn’t have any bus services nearby. The nearest town accessible by train then bus is Brecon, so we would suggest staying there and travelling by taxi. Do please lobby Welsh Government if you think that is unreasonable.
