A summary
Longtown Outdoor Learning Centre is a multi-activity outdoor centre situated on the Herefordshire and Monmouthshire border in the rural village of Longtown.   We offer fun and challenging outdoor adventure activities in and around the Brecon Beacons National Park and Black Mountains from our village base. Our multi-activity courses aim to promote resilience, self-confidence, consideration for others, caring for the environment and the benefits of an active outdoor lifestyle. This comes from enjoying the successes achieved through personal endeavour and working together, in wild and beautiful landscapes.
About your mentors

Since 1964 we have been providing groups of children and young people with adventurous residential breaks and day visits from our action packed 16 acre site on the Herefordshire and Monmouthshire border. Our dedicated and attentive team of Outdoor Tutors and Activity Instructors look after groups every step of the way ensuring that every child experiences an exhilarating and memorable visit regardless of age, ability and mobility.
