Why stay here ...

Situated near the foothills of the glorious Welsh countryside, Brecon Beacons Club Site can lay claim to some of the best views of the central Beacons, with dramatic views of Pen-y-Fan, Cribyn and Corn Dufeatures. It features a plethora of facilities that include two toilet blocks, a well stocked shop and play areas for children. A circular dog walk leads to a quaint stream and woodland area, where you'll find an adventure course - fun for both kids and adults! Its centrality provides the ideal base for touring the towns, including Brecon and Talgarth, and countryside of mid and south Wales as well as exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Brecon Beacons Club Site is the ideal location whether you are taking a relaxing holiday to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Brecon Beacon countryside, or taking a trip to the many charming towns and villages in the area. Also highly recommended is exploring the nearby hills and mountains that are ideal for walking, climbing, mountain biking or caving. Whatever you choose to do, the caravan park makes a great base from which to see the sights and if you've built up a thirst after all that activity, there's a nice local pub about 10-minutes' walk away!

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 for more information on walking in the National Park.

Spacious Site

Visited this site for 3 nights in our motorhome. Unfortunately on our arrival we were met with a very frosty female at reception, not a good start to our visit. Thankfully the other wardens were very friendly. The site has 2 very large toilet blocks that are kept spotless. Grounds of the site are well kept and tidy. We arrived on a Sunday and as others have said the noise of motorbikes on road outside the site site were very noisy but after that traffic seemed to quieten down. Our main problem was that we have a very sensitive dog who hates fireworks and there is an Infantry Firing Range close by. This started every week day at 830 and lasted a few hours. Wasn't great for our dog, obviously nothing the site can do but just a warning to others with dogs. Lovely walk along the canal to Brecon where there are various good walks. Plenty shops, cafes and pubs in Brecon. Some very dog friendly places. There is an Aldi and Morrisons for any supplies you might need.

Lovely site, but a couple of areas for improvement

Stayed for 2 nights in early July. The noise from motorbikes on the adjacent A40 is pervasive and annoying, and seems to be a feature of this road across Wales. This is out of control of the Club, but worth bearing in mind. Staff are at times quite institutionalised and could make the whole experience more friendly, remembering that it is intended to be a leisure facility! Washrooms clean and well maintained, good shop and good situation. Usual issue with dogs, extending leads, and also the evening cycle race round the path, but these are a feature of many club sites now, which can only be improved by more consideration for other site users.

Good pitches - Some road noise - Great canal path for walking/cycling

We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of July 2019. Having read previous reviews we were wary of a warden without interpersonal skills. However, in our experience either these reports are wrong or that person has left the site. The wardens were all good humoured and helpful. The site itself was very clean and tidy. The toilet/shower block looked brand new and sparkled. Location is very good, and access to an excellent canal path whilst not without issues is not difficult. You have to cross two dual carriageways which at peak periods will be busy, but at other times does not pose too much difficulty. Pitches are of a good size and well spaced. We did not need levelling ramps - always a bonus. Others have mentioned road noise, and it is clear that being on the junction of two main roads will cause some road noise to be present. This noise is not intrusive. However, a few of the local motor cycle enthusiasts do use the road as a racetrack in the evening and this noise can be annoying but never lasts long. There is nothing that the site can do about it. There is a well equipped shop on site, selling basic groceries, sweet, papers, magazines, ice cream, drinks and camping accessories. A short walk into Brecon will give you access to several pubs and a few eateries. A great stay, helped by good weather.

Lovely Site in a Lovely Location

We had a three night stay in our Motorhome. It would have been a five night stay but Saturday was fully booked out. The staff were friendly and quite helpful but as they were only 'stand-in staff' they couldn't tell us if there was any mobile catering due to come on site during our stay. The pitches offered were grass or hardstanding. The whole area is extremely well maintained and all public buildings (eg shower blocks) were clean, well maintained and excellently appointed. There is a nice, one and a half mile, canal tow-path walk into brecon town. There is also a lovely pub (The Three Horseshoes), serving nice food, just a 10/15 mins walk from the site. There is a small, unavoidable, irritation: because the site is so green and lush, with loads of hedges marking internal and external boundaries the maintenance of this greenery results in the frequent use of very noisy petrol hedge trimmers, leaf blowers, tractor grass mowers etc.
