The Good Day Out

A unique chance to go sheep trekking in the Brecon Beacons National Park! Good Day Out has teamed up with Aberhyddnant Farm to create a completely new concept, which is more native than Llama Trekking and more fun than your average walk in the hills. Each sheep is fitted with its own little halter, and you will choose your own sheep from a small flock of especially trained Jacobs. He will then lead you along a scenic trek on that takes you towards the Black Mountain with scenic views towards Pen y Fan. The undated vouchers make a great present!
Check out the lovely FYI:Brecon video from our inaugural trek https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMKlJkwfm4Y

The sheep treks run from April to September, with dates for 2018 being posted shortly.
If you need accommodation, you can book one of the lovely Aber Cottages at the Sheep Trekking Farm or have a look at our suggestions for other places to stay locally.

Need to Know

Please bring wellies or walking shoes. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Young children under 12 will share an adult's sheep, and children of 3 years old and under are free. The trek is uphill but on reasonable terrain. Please note that there are very friendly dogs on the farm which may accompany you. Your own dogs are sadly not welcome for this experience due to possible stress levels for the sheep. The experience is conducted with small groups so early booking is advisable. If you would like us to arrange a bespoke trek for your group please enquire.

The Good Cause

Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution

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. RABI is a charity providing support for members of the farming community and their families in times of need.

I've got to be honest, I thought you guys were bonkers before I came here, but now I accept that you are making the best of the Brecons!

“Sheep Trekking...an absolute must for the whole family whatever their age (and especially sheep lovers!)”

Now rural thrill seekers can try something new

You've just got to hope the flock don't conspire to eat your sandwiches

Sheep Trecking!!? I've just been on one and it was really lovely! Very tranquil and relaxing. Lovely group of people, a beautiful walk and a delicious picnic of tea and cake waiting for us half way, out on the hill. Enchanting! Thank you Good Day Out.

We had a great time much helped by the weather. The family were brilliant, kind helpful relaxed and investing. Great picnic tea with a choice of herbal as well as normal tea/coffee. Fab for me as I am not a coffee/tea girl. Most unexpected too, as I had taken my own drink. June 2015
