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.

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!

Beautiful Bolthole!

A lovely peaceful site tucked away in the middle of nowhere and surrounded by fields of newborn lambs. There are no facilities other than electric here, and the tv signal is poor so it's probably not great for families. If on the other hand you want peace and quiet, it is just perfect! There is a bus stop half a mile away on the main road. To my delight I discovered that buses in Powys are free at weekends. The tireless wardens work hard keeping the site in immaculate condition. And talking of wardens - they are the friendliest, most helpful people you could ever wish to meet. Now I really hope that I haven't encouraged hoards of people to stay here as I'd like to keep this secret to myself!

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.
