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.

Peaceful and very attractive site with a unique charm

We stayed here in July and the site was still very quiet and peaceful but also very near Brecon and all the beautiful scenery. On arrival we were met by a very friendly warden who gave us plenty of local information, which was very useful. The site has a unique charm with the old railway features, including four pitches on the old platform! It is a very pretty site, beautifully maintained. We don't use club site washing and toilet facilities so it wasn't an issue for us, and we were able to visit the nearby Brecon club site to do a little laundry which was very useful. A lovely, peaceful site in a great location, we will visit again.

Small, peaceful site were you will just want to switch off and relax

We only stayed two nights at this lovely site but we will definitely be back as it's only a couple of hours from home. The volunteer wardens do a sterling job of maintaining this site including the vast amount of information available in both the office and the information shed. They were really helpful in answering the question we had about cycling and walking in the are. The site is so peacefuk and pretty and I think because it's small and you don't have the usual facilities, it made it even more relaxing and peaceful. You'll love it I'm sure. It's a little gem and I hope it remains that way. Lots to see and do in and around Brecon and it's surrounding area. A bonus is the river and canal and we now know that there is a cycle route from Brecon along the canal for some miles.

Absolutely Fabulous

Stayed here over spring BH, it was so peaceful. A great welcome from volunteers Mark and Jayne day n arrival. The site is a former railway station and is long and narrow. It’s beautifully maintained and a credit to the volunteers who run it. The site is a mixture of grass and hardstandings all well maintained. Being away from the main road it was extremely quiet, only birds to break the silence! Brecon is about 10 minutes away, also the Brecon canal is great for easy walking. Also a short drive away are Crickhowell and Hay-on-Wye, both worth a visit.

Peaceful and enjoyable.

Just spent 14 quiet nights here again, needing a relaxing break. Had the usual friendly welcome on arrival. The site was in immaculate condition, as usual. There were numerous wardens working on the flowers on one day, obviously taking great pride in the site. Always a pleasure to visit here, and the wardens always have time for a chat, also recommending some first-class local eateries. We’re already looking forward to our next visit!
