Why stay here ...

Renovated from a former railway station, Aberbran Club Site is just the thing if you're after a no nonsense, simple and relaxing caravanning holiday. The site provides facilities for those with a passion for walking and bird watching as the caravan site is ideally located within the Brecon Beacons and its famous National Park. The Park has its own Mountain Centre, where visitors can come to collect information, leaflets and walks. An exhibition and a small cafe is on hand that includes an outside terrace with stunning views to admire.

Aberbran Club Site puts you within easy distance to the shops and restaurants of  Brecon, including its popular market on Tuesday and Friday. The market town is also home to a craft fair that occurs once a month selling all kinds of Welsh crafts. Mid August sees the arrival of a Jazz Festival that has proved ever popular with previous guests of the site.

Walking notes:

The Brecon Beacons and the Beacons National Park provide some of the finest walking in the country, from gentle strolls to tough mountain hikes. A hike to the top of Pen-y-Fan will give you an enormous sense of achievement as well as spectacular views. Visit the Mountain Centre at Libanus, 15 minutes drive from the site for more information on walking in the National Park.

Supermarket notes:

The closest are Morrisons and in Brecon, about 4.5 miles from the site.

Second stop of Welsh roadtrip

We first stayed here 2012 when we had a caravan and had a wonderful holiday one of the best we have had. The volunteer wardens were amazing. Now we have a campervan (Trigano Tribute) and this year for our two week hols are on a memory lane trip taking in a few new places aswell. We had just one night here 16th september. Again brilliant welcome from the volunteers fair play to them without them the site would close and it would be a sad loss. The wardens this time used to volunteer at Mildenhall so they had come a long way!! No toilet block on this site but still one of the best please dont ever close it! We will always come here when in the area.

Lovely site

We stayed on this site for two nights recently and the wardens who were volunteers David and his wife were so friendly and helpful. The site is very quiet and tranquil we stayed on the platform where you have views across the valley. The site is an old railway station and there are photos in reception of the station in its Heyday. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Would not return to this site

This was the first site we stayed at on our summer holiday. We drove 10 hours to get there, so arrived later than everyone else. As it was the weekend the place was almost full so we ended up with what felt/looked like the car park. We asked the warden if there were any other spots available, he reminded us that he was a volunteer and didn't need the hassle. Most of the vans were only there for the weekend, while we stayed on till Wednesday. As we had an awning, it wasn't worth moving the van when site emptied. Our view was of the service point and what ever car was left there each evening. The car park was quite long, but oddly the cars always parked right opposite our van. On the day we left, I asked the guy who owned the car who had parked opposite us the previous evening (instead of beside his own van) if he could move it to make it easier for us to leave. His reply was the warden told him to park there and if I had an issue then I should take it up with the warden. Apart from that, it was a quiet, pleasant site, ideally located for exploring the Brecon Beacons. Unfortunately the attitude of the warden would put off returning to this site.

Pretty Little Site

We used Aberbran on our way to and back from West Wales. Site was easy to find and we had a warm welcome from both sets of wardens. The site itself is long and narrow with mostly grass pitches, some of which are on the short size. There is a pleasant short dog walk useful for first and last walks. We called in at the PYO just up from the site, which sells fruit, together with very tasty sausages, and has friendly staff . Brecon is an interesting town, useful map available at reception. We liked the site and would use again for a longer stay.

Brilliant for relaxing its so peaceful and quiet

This site is a little gem. We stayed for 4 nights (were booked for 5 but our house alarm went faulty and we had to leave one night early). This site is brilliant if you want peace and quiet and see plenty of wildlife then this is a must. The wardens are SO helpful, nothing too much trouble and always with a smile. We forgot to take our National Trust book away with us and asked the wardens of any local properties to visit. They went out of their way to find out the details for us and we had a great day out. The site is beautiful with plenty of flowers displayed and well looked after, also the site is pristine, and the facilites immaculate. Our pitch was really good too and we had views of the Welsh hills and watch the red kites. Pure bliss. Well done Aberbran.
