Isolated beauty

Stayed here for two nights but could happily stay longer. 25 minutes walk to lovely pub in llanfrechan. Don't come here if you want anything other than peace and quiet. Farmer Mr Thomas is really nice and is there only if you need him. A real gem. Many thanks will definetly come again

Perfect remote Brecon Beacons CL

I really like this L. It suits us perfectly and we have been there 4 times now. For some it might not be so perfect. Its very tranquil. A real get away from it all location. Beautiful scenery. Farmer is helpful and cheerfull. Leaves you to it and keeps out of the way. A real nice guy. Field is pretty big. Even if there were 20 vans they would be further apart than most CL’s The field varies. Earlier in the year it is left to grow long – maybe up to a foot of really beautiful meadow. I love this and my dog loves it. Some may not. Fine if dry. Wellies if wet!! After July cut it is short. Water point is fine. Only one in field so can be a little walk of maybe 100m for those furthest away. Chem point doesn’t have any rinse option so need to get some water from the water point which is 15m away. Lots of walks, and horse riding in the area. Shops are 20 mins away. Not as much to do as say Cornwall, but still plenty with a bit of travelling. Access is a couple of miles down lanes that are quite narrow in places, but there are no tight turns that would be a problem for longer vehicles. There are passing points but might have to reverse the odd time. Some CC’ers might not like that. If you’re the sort that likes to pull straight off main road into manicured site this probably isn’t you. If you like it wilder then you’ll love it. We do.

A Great CL

We have just spent six nights at Pentwyn. A well managed CL with beautiful views of the Brecon mountains. Access roads are single track and quite narrow for about 2 miles to reach the site, so you need to be confident with your towing skills. One negative is that there is only one tap for the drinking water and no tap for the toilet disposal so you have to fill a bucket, not ideal.

Best campsite ever in wales

This site is a sloping hay meadow situated beneath Pen Y Fan with fantastic walking access to the northern side of the Brecon Beacons.  There are 360 degree panoramic views along the length of the Beacons and across to the lower ground around Brecon. You pitch up wherever you like. There is a tap, a chemical waste disposal and a bin. What else do you need? You can get a mobile signal and some caravans were able to get TV reception. There was so much space that everyone was well separated. The grass is long until mid July  to allow the meadow flowers to grow. Why you would look at a Tv when you have the grandeur of the mountain scenery is a mystery.....and most people did what we did which was to sit outside and watch the sun set and the lengthening shadows of the hills until the first stars appear. We did have good weather! The owners farm is half a mile away and he is very friendly and helpful. Unless you go to see him, he will leave you alone which is fine by us.  Downsides might be getting stuck after heavy rain; you would need to be a careful about which bit of the field you used. Some people don't like long grass. It is a 30 minute walk across a lovely footpath to the village pub. Quicker by bike but uphill coming back. For people who like walking, prefer lots of space around you and are not bothered that the site does not resemble someone's front garden but like the real outdoors - this site is perfect. It's a proper CL site and not a caravan park.

Fantastic Rural Escape

I stayed here in July 2015. The field hadn't been cut but this added to the "atmosphere". Fantastic views and walks in all directions, including direct access to the Brecon Beacons, and views of Crybben and Pen-Y-Fan. Showers and toilets are a 5 minute walk to the farm if you need them. No regimented pitches - park where you like!
