Lovely relaxing site in great location for Pen Y Fan, Cribyn and Brecon town.

Rhydywernen Farm
We stayed here for 2 nights in June and were greeted on arrival by Paula who was really helpful and friendly and offered us a choice of pitches. The site has a lovely relaxed feel and is a great location for both Brecon town and Pen Y Fan, Cribyn etc with some of the best walking in the UK. You can walk to either town or hills from the site via very quiet country lanes. The access to the site could not be easier, no concern over narrow lanes or blind corners, it is just off the main road but lower than the road so very little traffic noise. We found the site to be surprising quiet and tranquil. There is direct access to a few small water falls and the river runs at the bottom of the site. Any of the pitches away from the farm track would give you the relaxing sound of the river and some have access for a paddle in the water, great for cooling tired feet after a day walking the hills. The hard standing pitches are well spaced and level which is great. No need for any ramps. The facilities are well organised, varied and well kept. We didn’t use the toilets or showers as we are self contained but there are a number of water points with hand sanitisers and a tidy recycling area, washing up, showers etc. The Elsan emptying point has been very well thought through, is simple yet perfect. It’s never a pleasant job but this one makes it so easy, there is easy grey water disposal too with a drain behind the main service block. We will return to this lovely site again when walking the Brecon Beacons.

Great access to Brecon and surrounding area for walking, cycling or driving

Rhydywernen Farm
Have spent 4 night here. It is very close to a fairly busy road. You can hear traffic at times. It is a working farm so you do get the usual farm noise which we didn't mind. Lovely donkeys you can visit.There are 2 camping fields either side of the club member part with shared facilities. It was fine for us (June) but I would imagine in school holiday time it could potentially be noisy. We parked up and found the owner later by chance. I don't think they would have checked as somone else was there for the night before getting anyone to pay. Through the second field is access to a quiet road which we used to cycle many places. It is a tight squeeze through the undergrowth, across 2 narrow bridgesmby the lovely waterfall. Well worth it as it saves going back to main road. From Brecon you can cycle along the canal to Talybont stopping at the pub along the way, watching the narrow boats and tasting wonderful icecream by the theatre or the shop you will pass from the campsite to the canal. Best icecream ever! or you can cycle on the road following the Taff's trail number 8 or do a mix of both. There is also easy access to Gurkha walking path as well as many others depending on how fit you are. This was not my favourite campsite partly because of traffic noise and being in a semicircle but that is just a personal thing. However, I loved the access to things and it had everything we needed and was £18 per night. I'm not sure the website mentions the two other fields, given you are backing on to them, I felt they should. Whilst this sounds like a negative review it really isn't, we had the best time there but we didn't spend much time at the site.

Description is deceiving

Rhydywernen Farm
There is no question this CL is set in a wonderful part of the Brecon Beacons with perfect access to Brecon and Pan Y Fan. Our one night stay was OK, but at no point when looking into staying in the site did we read that both sides of the CL motorhome field has adjacent fields full of campers in tents. Arguably, if we had thoroughly read back through all reviews we would have discovered this, BUT, from their description this is not mentioned, hence our title, "Description is deceiving". Watching the tent folks in a permanent que to the 4 toilets made us glad we are in a motorhome, however, not sure how 2 showers can serve 3 fields (over 20 tents) and the motor homes who wanted to use the showers. No noise control after 11 pm either so would not call it quiet or peaceful either. Sadly quite a harsh review but we felt this is a perfect place spoilt by the tented fields.

Lovely 5 nights stay.

Rhydywernen Farm
It would have been helpful to have had some instructions as to where to go. Where we were situated we could hear those camping in the adjacent field even though there was a large hedge between us. We couldn’t have had a better place to explore the surrounding area. The walk into Brecon is steady stroll, while the hike up Pen y Fan from the site covers some mileage so pack a flask, sandwiches & the jelly babies. If whisky is your thing then Penderyn distillery is a 20 minute drive away & they sell whiskies, vodka & rum which is on their wed site. The site & surrounding area is very beautiful, we were near a babbling stream which at night laid in bed window open listening to it I found really relaxing. All in all a great stay & we will be back as there is so much to see, walk & hike other than Pen y Fan. So thank you Paula.

Great weekend

Rhydywernen Farm
Despite the poor weather our weekend here was excellent, brilliant location and site is well laid out, Paula made us very welcome. Ideally situated for walks to Brecon and into the Beacons. This was our first visit but will not be our last one of the best CL's we have visited, thank you.
