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.

What a peaceful few days

Aberbran Club Campsite
Just spent 4 nights on this site in our motor home, and enjoyed every minute. The welcome from the volunteer wardens was second to none, and the site is well run and well maintained. The location is very peaceful and the scenery is stunning. There are plenty of walking/hiking opportunities to satisfy all abilities - just buy an OS map of the area, and go for it. The town of Brecon is worth a visit, and so is a walk along the canal. There are buses into Brecon from the end of the lane joining the A40, but the timetable is somewhat flexible at the moment because of the many roadworks on that road. . . . . . We will be back.

Lovely site in lovely location

Aberbran Club Campsite
We've just returned from 10 days at this site. Its extremely efficiently run site and kept in immaculate condition. It is run by volunteers and is a great credit to them. We met several of the volunteers who are all so helpful and cheerful - nothing is too much trouble and you can tell they have an enormous pride in the site. The location is ideal in wonderful walking country. We did several mountain walks, plus gentler days enjoying flat walking along the canal and around Llangorse lake. Also enjoyed a lovely lazy day with a canal cruise which we thoroughly recommend. We love the town of Brecon itself and revelled in exploring it and discovering all its really interesting history and beautiful buildings. We also loved the modern vibe of the town with its many shops, cafes and pubs. The Brecon Tap especially is a great find - terrific beer and great staff. We will definitely be back to Aberbran

Nice quiet site

Aberbran Club Campsite
I would like to take this opportunity of thanking the site wardens Mark and Jane for all the help they provided to us following our stay during 9th to 12th September. My wife broke her wrist badly while out walking on the Saturday, and when we got back to site following a long afternoon spent at Carmarthen Hospital, both Jane and Mark were very attentive to our problems, and especially Jane who is a retired nurse helped my wife until we were able to leave on the Sunday morning. A Huge thank you goes out to them, and they are a credit to the Caravan and Motorhome Club. A lovely quiet site too!

A lovely long weekend stay

Aberbran Club Campsite
This was our second visit to Aberbran and would love to stay again. The location puts you in an ideal place for the Brecon Beacons and the town itself. It is also located close to the Llangorse lakes which is a must visit and great if you have Kayaks. Also if you rather a walk that is more on the flat then head for the Brecon Basin and take a walk or you can hire a boat along the cannel. The pitch had plenty of room, was flat and as with most CAMC sites you are able to choose any vacant pitch. The site is very quiet and has a little dog walk on site, but if you have dogs you have plenty of locations to take them on a longer walk. There is a great walk just down the road past the Aberbran Mill house that allows you to then walk over the river Bran and then along the river Usk. There are no toilets or washing facilities so you have to be self contained, for us this was fine as we have been in that mode over the last year with Covid. The only ask I would have for this site is that there are plenty of hand sanitisation stations, but on this visit none of them had any sanitiser and as there are no washing facilities there is a greater requirement for this. This could be a supply thing as on our first visit this was not an issue. In short, a great little site which is very quiet, friendly and is in an ideal location. At night, the sky is full of stars due to the low light pollution and is well worth a look up on the clear nights.

Lovely site and very quiet

Aberbran Club Campsite
As other reviewers I can confirm this is a very quiet and peaceful site. Lovely setting and a very warm welcome. Having onboard facilities meant it didn't matter that site has no loos/showers -though surprised that no waste water disposal for motorhomes. A little further out of Brecon than we thought -5 miles, cycled in and hilly (you are warned!). The cafe inside the church in Brecon centre is worth a visit. Nice area and I expect good for walking. Ideal spot if you want a few days without going anywhere for a really relaxing stay! We had the bonus of seeing red kites so good for twitchers too.
