The Bales (Brynmawr Agricultural Lifestyle Education Sanctuary) is a multifunctional building made of straw bales, recycled materials and a green roof. It was largely funded by Natural England to extend the access facilities of the farm (see Tours and Education)
The building looks out across the magnifcent Shropshire Hills and offers peace and tranquility that is so rare to find. It is light and airy in summer and snug and warm in winter.
It is surrounded by a picnic area and has its own cooking facilities.
The building can be hired as a stand alone facility for meetings, workshops, courses or events or can be used as part of a farm visit with lunch or you can incorporate a farm course or a business workshop (see Workshops).
For businesses it provides the ideal setting with both indoor and outdoor space for that think tank, team building session or meeting.
