The Local Area

We feel very blessed to live so close to nothing and everything!

Take a look at just some of the places on our doorstep, and also a little drive away.



Whether it be a gentle stroll or a full on hike, we have it all!

Hendre was known for its quarries and we still have some in use today. Littered through the woods are remnants of the past including old mining equipment and stone buildings.

We can provide a range of routes to enjoy. All starting and ending at the Dragon Tower. No driving needed!
