weddingVenue Hire

Y Dolydd – Llanfyllin Workhouse can be hired for your private event or function. We have 2 indoor venue/meeting rooms, a 5 star professional catering kitchen, a fully licensed bar, a 24 bed bunkhouse and 6.5 acres of beautiful grounds and gardens to explore and enjoy, making us the perfect site for your wedding, private party, festival, conference or meeting. 

To make a booking please apply at bottom of this page.


There are good self catering facilities in the bunkhouse but should you prefer we can offer catering during your visit or event. 

We offer breakfasts, dinners and lunches our menu choices and serving options depend on who we are catering for and what their requirements. 

Our minimum number for any meal is 12 people. Our “cafe” seats 20 at a time, but for larger numbers we can arrange a larger space. We can cater for vegetarians, vegans, gluten free and will do our best with other special diets. 

We will do our best to accommodate your requests but may not be able to due to manpower or other constraints, and  unfortunately there are some things that we don’t have cooking facilities for, chips being one.

We need to confirm the menu and numbers a week before your stay. To discuss our catering options please email – or phone 07534354082.


Example breakfast options: 

Standard cooked breakfast, 1 sausage, 2 bacon, 1 or 2 fried eggs, beans, tomato, mushrooms with toast butter and marmalade, teas and instant coffee on a help yourself basis. £8 per head, (minimum charge for group £96)

Luxury cooked breakfast, as above as a starting point, but with extras, some groups would prefer real coffee (cafetiere), or fruit, some cereal, smoked salmon in scrambled egg… whatever takes your fancy, but it is for the whole group, we can’t cater for an A La Carte type menu, we just don’t have the facilities. From £10 per head depending on extras required, (minimum £120 for group)


Example dinner options:

2 courses from £13 per head

3 courses from £16 per head 

This is for a set meal – the same for everybody – apart from catering for members of the group with special diets. For the basic charge the menu could be something like soup and bread roll, shepherds pie with salads, apple crumble and custard with teas and coffee afterwards on a help yourself basis. Other starter options could be a Greek salad, pate on toast, smoked mackerel salad… Other basic price main course options may include, a chilli served with rice and salsa, quiche with potatoes and salads, casserole with jacket potatoes, sausages and mash with gravy and vegetables.
