Here at Pen-y-Bryn Farm, we love to attend local races and have squashed our own PB (Personal Best) times at a few events this year! Throughout 2019, come and stay with us and set yourself a challenge to complete a course on your own or with loved ones. The following are a selection of the local events taking place in early 2019, each one taking in the breathtaking natural beauty that we are lucky enough to be surrounded by all year long. What a great way to make a start on those New Year's Resolutions!
