A unique chance to go sheep trekking in the Brecon Beacons National Park!
The Good Day Out Sheep Trek, as featured on Countryfile, is one of our most popular experience days. It’s excellent for the whole family, and is far more fun than your average walk in the hills.
We wanted to create a more native walking experience, rather than the popular Llama trekking. You can walk your very own especially trained Jacob sheep, fitted with it’s own halter and lead. Your sheep will then lead you along a scenic trek along ancient drover’s routes, taking you towards the Black Mountain with incredible views towards Pen Y Fan and the central Beacons.
Around half way, you and your sheep will be treated to a snack picnic in a barn with a view. During the whole experience, you can chat with your farming host who will be happy to talk about life on their 200 acre organic Welsh Hill Farm, and you will also see quiet a few other animals along the way including horses, cattle, hens, ducks and dogs.
To come on this trip, you need to be prepared for some potentially muddy ground! You’ll be walking along hills and farmland, so bring wellies or walking shoes.
All children must be accompanied by an adult, and children under 12 need to share an adult or older child’s sheep. Children of 3 years old and under are free. Sorry but we do not allow bystanders as it is a very small group experience.
The trek is uphill but on a reasonable terrain. There is some uneven ground but the walk is taken at a leisurely pace to suit all the participants.
Please note there are very friendly dogs on the farm which may want to accompany you! Unfortunately, your own dogs are sadly not welcome as this may cause unnecessary stress to the sheep. The experience is conducted with small groups so early booking is advisable if you have a specific date in mind. If you would like us to arrange a bespoke trek for a larger group, please send us in an enquiry and we can help you out!
Please book or enquire here for specific dates, but if you wish to buy an undated voucher, please visit our Gifts section where you can either buy specific or general Gift Vouchers as great special presents.
Wednesdays & Saturdays 10am, Sundays 2pm. The experience lasts around 2 hours including the picnic.
All Good Day Out activities and adventures help a good cause in some way. In this instance the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution is the beneficiary.
