Primrose Earth Centre
Primrose Earth Centre, run by Jan and Paul Benham, is situated at the foot of the Black Mountains, 5 miles from Hay-on-Wye ('town of books', Hay Literature Festival and Offa's Dyke Path), 10 miles from Brecon (Brecon Jazz) and 17 miles from Builth Wells (Royal Welsh Show).
The farm is on the edge of a small village, Felindre, on National Cycle Route (8) and is ideally situated for exploring the area, for walking, cycling, pony trekking and canoeing holidays as well as for using as a base to visit other local attractions.
A well established organic fruit & vegetable smallholding, developed according to 'permaculture' principles, we provide many fresh, seasonal and local ingredients from which guests prepare their own breakfast; local free-range eggs, fresh fruit, home-made yogurt etc.
We also offer a 2-course vegetarian or vegan evening meal (special diets catered for). This must be booked in advance. No licensed premises but guests can bring their own wine. 'The Three Horseshoes' within 5 minutes' walk offers good beer and pub grub.
A variety of courses are held at the Centre including regular 'sound healing' courses which are run under the umbrella of the UK College of Sound Healing, 'Seasonal Cookery' courses and 'How to Garden for Life', a gardening course which is held once a month over a 10-month period and aimed at those who wish to learn how to grow their own healthy food.
The Centre is ideal for quiet retreats. Treatments such as 'holistic massage' and 'sound healing' from qualified practitioners are available and can be organised if booked in advance. One-to-one cooking sessions can be tailor-made to suit individual needs. Rooms are fairly small and no en-suite but are in very close proximity to shower-room and bath-room. Rates are very reasonable and the premises are ideal for a small family or group.
