About River Wye Activity Centre
The River Wye Activity Centre is a fantastic new outdoor activity centre based in the village of Glasbury, just a few miles outside Hay on Wye, and is owned and operated by the Ultimate Activity Company. Situated right on the banks of the beautiful River Wye, and at the edge of the spectacular Brecon Beacons National Park, the centre is around an hour away from Cardiff, two hours from Birmingham and 30 minutes from Hereford, and is accessible via most transportation networks.
Glasbury is a popular location for river fishing, canoeing and kayaking, and the new base is at the highest point of our River Wye locations. Providing canoe and kayak hire, we also offer many more outdoor activities, such as archery, mountain biking, gorge walking, orienteering and team building to groups, all within the centre’s seven acres of spacious grounds.
The River Wye Activity Centre also offers accommodation, with capacity to sleep up to 44 guests in the main old Georgian House (Glasbury House), and a further 26 guests in the recently renovated River Wye Bunkhouse, in addition to a campsite also being located within the grounds.
Glasbury House is an ideal venue for large group events and residential trips. The house has previously been a residential education centre for over 65 years, and once was a substantial gentry village residence, and Grade II listed, parts of which are believed to date back to the 1750’s. Glasbury House has welcomed thousands of children and young people over the years as a residential education centre, and the River Wye Activity Centre is looking forward to upholding its tradition.
The River Wye Bunkhouse is perfect for family get-togethers, corporate events, well behaved hen and stag parties or groups of friends, looking for a place to relax after a day on the river or outdoor activities, or as a base to enjoy Hay on Wye and surrounding areas. Comfortably able to sleep up to 26 guests in bunk accommodation, we’re also able to offer fully catered breakfasts and BBQ facilities, plus an on-site café providing coffees, teas, cakes, soft drinks and ice cream.
