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.

Downmarket and neglected

To start with the positives, this site is in a good location for easy access to the mountains and the canal. Access to the site itself is very easy along a short track from a very busy main road. The downside for us was the fact that there were always between six and eight caravans or motorhomes on this site every night. I notice from a previous review in 2012 the same thing was happening then. The next problem was the fact that the grass had clearly not been cut for many weeks. The hard standing (just gravel) areas were overgrown with weeds and uneven. Finally, the short access road to the site had many really large potholes in it which were quite difficult to avoid. It is also not the most peaceful of sites with constant traffic and farmyard vehicle noise during the day. The overall impression of this site was one of neglect . I do not think that CL sites require a lot of maintenance so a bit of grass cutting and filling in a few potholes (especially as they've probably got the machinery to do this) it's not a lot to expect. We definitely will not be returning.

Quiet site by lovely river

We recently stayed 5 nights at this lovely little site. It's on a working farm with easy vehicular access off the main road - the site is down a short drive and, because it's down a slight slope, there is little noise from the road. Each pitch is a hardstanding with electric - fairly flat (our neighbours used chocks but we didn't). There are two loos and two showers - all are basic but clean (and the showers were better than some posher sites!) - as well as water taps and septic waste. The loos are in a little stone building on your right as you face the farmhouse from the drive and the showers are on the corner of the main farmhouse. Water & septic adjacent to the loos. There's bins for general waste as well as recycling. Showers are 50p for 5 minutes which (even with very long hair that takes a while to wash) was more than ample time. The river runs round the site and is very pretty - the best place to look at it is from the two footbridges at the back of the site (across the camping field next to the caravan field, below the main farm house, turn right at the end of the building, follow the narrow path round to the footbridge). Taking the same route, you can access a quiet lane and walk into Brecon (turn left when you get to the lane) or turn right on the lane , go over the stone road bridge then turn left up a footpath on the next bend - this path joins up to the Taff Trail after about 10 - 15 minutes walking. We walked to the visitor centre near Libanus (well worth a visit) as well as various walk up Pen Y Fan and adjacent hills and also into Brecon. We were here to walk so didn't go out to any other attractions. We thought the site was excellent value and very much to our taste. You have to remember it is a working farm - the owners clearly work long hours so may not be there every minute of the day; having said that, we found no problem getting hold of them. Also, being a working farm, you get a few moos from the resident cattle but there was nothing that disturbed us (let's face it, a mooing cow is 10 times better than most town noises!). we both wished we could have stayed longer. TV signal was ok.
