Set in the Bannau Bycheiniog National Park at the foot of the Black Mountains, the historic Coleg Trefeca is the ideal option for your stay in Mid Wales, whether that is for a well-earned break, a conference, training or retreat.

Dating back to 1752, Coleg Trefeca is a Grade II* Listed Building and was  the home of the early Calvinistic Methodist Leader, Howell Harris.

It was built by a Christian community made up of artisans who shared their faith and lives together, it has a profound spiritual history.


Over the years it has been a place of worship, work, education, retreat and refuge. Today Coleg Trefeca is still a mix of those things. It offers good conference facilities, together with self catering or catered options. We welcome you to make it your own.
