Powys, Wales

Welcome to beautiful Wales countryside; rolling green hills and lots of fluffy white sheep. There are no big city distractions at Trebinshun House, a small residential English centre for executives and professionals. It's English, English, English from morning to bedtime. Trebinshun House has its own chef who prepares gorgeous meals in the mansion's charming dining room. But when you do get a break, there are plenty of things to do: Golf, walks, cycling, horse-riding, fishing, picnics and lots of fresh country air. The school has a sauna and mini–gym as well. For the less active, there’s a billiard table and plenty of comfortable chairs in front of the open log fires. Mmmm…a drop of Scotch anyone? Sounds pretty good.

Trebinshun House

Trebinshun House is far from the city crowds. It’s a training centre and 400-year-old historic mansion in the green countryside of the Brecon Beacon National Park in Wales.

Trebinshun House is the "Rolls Royce of English training" for professional people. Trebinshun House offer residential courses for motivated adults—business and professional people—who need to improve their English quickly and in a comfortable and stimulating environment.

Our professional clients adore the Trebinshun experience. It’s intensive English from morning to night.

Trebinshun House has a maximum capacity of just 12 clients. You are someone special. After a grueling day of negotiations in English, sit down with your colleagues to a three-course evening dinner with wine prepared by the in–house chef.

The course fees include tuition, accommodation in an en–suite bedroom, all meals, wine with dinner, laundry, a full social programme and use of sauna and small fitness room.

Courses run from Sunday evening to Friday lunchtime so the week is very intensive, but allows clients to get home on Friday for important personal and family time. For those staying for two weeks or more, this timetable gives time to relax; visit family, friends or places in the UK.

The Language House likes

The Trebinshun House experience is rich, rewarding, challenging and comfortable. It’s fun too. Imagine learning English is an old English mansion (first built in 1588) that’s straight out of an Agatha Christie novel (without the murders). Be warned: It’s intensive. You will be speaking English with your trainers and colleagues from breakfast to bedtime.
