A short break and we'll be back!

OK this is at the heart of a working farm with associated sounds, aromas, and a few flies. Get past that and it's a little gem. The spacious hard standing pitches each with hook up are laid out in a horseshoe. The 2 toilets and separate showers which were kept very clean are attached to the house. This site is great value and in a lovely location. We will be back for a longer stay! This has the potential to be a really great site. It's still new and not quite there yet. The welcome in the excellent cafe / farm shop was friendly and we were left to find ourselves a pitch. These are all large flat and fully serviced if looking a bit unkempt, partly due to the weather. The facilities were in modern portaloos however work had started on the permanent ones. The hot tub pitches were popular but not for us. The access roads are becoming a bit pot holed and it does lack some facilities although these are planned, hence my first comment. It was remarkably quiet for absolutely peak season as was the area which offers plenty to do from traditional seaside through to market towns and other more athletic pursuits.

It's lovely but......

This site has excellent facilities, 2 showers and 2 toilets, and several hard standings making it an all year CL......even in Wales! It is a working farm so there is some noise from farm machinery but that didn't bother us and neither did the slight road noise. Access is easy. Location is excellent - you can walk into Brecon down a quiet lane in about 40mins and you can also walk directly onto The Beacons. TV reception not great and phone reception on O2 and Three OK. The problem is that the owners, who are very friendly but can't always be found to sell their excellent eggs, seem to have forgotten the rule over number of members allowed on site. Several nights it was 7 vans and on one occasion it was 8. We will return.

IDYLLIC SETTING

We have just experienced a fantastic week at this wonderful CL. The site is easily reached on major roads, good, clear, large access to the site. Generous sized hard standing pitches and no leveling blocks required. As a working farm, we were not surprised that no one was available to meet us, this was not a problem and we met Paula later. This is a lovely site with a delightful river and waterfalls alongside, very sheltered with plenty of trees on the perimeter but open to the sun on the pitches. Ideally situated to enjoy all the stunning scenery and places of interest, the Beacons have to offer. We had our two dogs with us who enjoyed the water and the numerous walks that led from the site. There are recycling facilities on site, Two well kept toilets and two modern showers giving 5 minutes of very hot water for 50p, a bargain. A very peaceful and relaxed site with friendly owners. well recommended.

Visited in October

This site had everything we could have wanted, clean toilets & showers, which is important to us as we run every day. A footpath from the site takes you over the rivers & out into the country side. yes there is some farm noise, but at no time did it become invasive & yes the grass was a little long, but this did not cause any problems. This truly is a working farm & as such the owners were very busy but very helpful. We recommend the walk into Brecon to make the pint or cake justified. Will visit again.

Lovely quiet location.

We stayed here in February half term. We were lucky with lovely crisp Autumnal weather and as this site is surrounded by trees it was beautiful. We walked every day, up to the waterfalls which is just s short walk up the hill from the site. We spent a lovely day in Brecon which is about 45 mins walk away. Lovely town with lots of dog friendly places to eat. Also did a longer circular walk. All walks straight from the site. The facilities were basic but clean and the owner very welcoming and told us about the walks. We agree that visitors need to respect that this is a working farm so there will be working noise however this did not bother us at all. We will certainly return.
