Fabulous peaceful site

We loved this CL! It has everything you need - peace, views, water and loo emptying, directly on the Taff Trail for great walking. Some road noise from across the valley but quiet at night. Extremely friendly and helpful. We walked to Brecon (4.5 miles on quiet lanes) and got the bus back, which helpfully dropped us off close to the CL at the end of the road. Definitely recommend!

Very disappointed with this site.

Sadly, I can't write a good review for this site. The scenery is good but that's about all. The site is along side an unfenced farm road and there were farm vehicles as well as cars frequently going past. The field is sloping and the grass w.as long. The walk or drive to the farm is quite long, we drove and I'm glad we did as we are both elderly. There is no water tap on the site, you have to walk back down the road to find the tap. The toilet emptying point has no tap either so short of having a container of water, you can't rinse out the toilet casette. Finding the site was difficult too as you come to a dead end sign. We had to ask in a house where the site was. Quite honestly, I can't see that without a tap for the drinking water and one for the toilet on site I am surprised that the Caravan Club accept this situation. It might be fine for the young, but certainly not for the elderly. We certainly wont go to this site again.

Beautiful off-the-grid CL

We stayed here for one Saturday night, mid July, at very short notice. The site is a large stretch of relatively level grass adjacent to an old coaching road, that now forms part of the Taff Trail, running along the Tarrell valley alongside the A470. There was only one other motorhome here for the night we stayed. It was a stunning spot to stay, our two under-5-year-olds were happy racing about the grass and watching tractors and cyclists occasionally trundle along the lane. It was a beautiful, gentle stroll along the lane to the farm itself, through wonderful countryside, where the owner was very welcoming and friendly. On our second morning we climbed up a track through the nearby woods, Coed Carno; a lovely walk up a woodland path before opening out onto rough grassland as it climbed towards the ridgeline that runs along to Pen Y Fan and its neighbours. This CL would make a great base for exploring these hills further and for the more demanding routes to the peaks. There was a constant background hum from the A470, but it was not intrusive - the call of the wild kites and buzzards that soared overhead was far more interesting! We saw a heron flying low along the river during our stay too, and lots of tiny frogs jumping across the track in the woods. There was a water tap a short distance away (but remember to bring a hose connector for direct hook-up, or containers) and although there were bins here, they didn't seem to be for public use so we took our rubbish with us - but we could have been overly cautious in this, as we didn't investigate for long on our way out. Beautiful, simple site. We shall certainly be back.

Wonderful stay at Blaeglyn Farm CL

This site is ideally located off A470. Stunning views and directly on the Taff Trail. A short distance along the road from the CL to the farm is a path that takes you up onto Y Garn and Pen y Fan. You therefore avoid all the hassle of parking at Storey Arms. After walking the Brecon Beacons Horseshoe, I walked back down to the storey Arms and back to the site via the Taff Trail. There are no facilities on the CL however it was peaceful with stunning views. I enjoyed watching the buzzards and falcons flying overhead. Made very welcome by the owners. Will definitely be back.
