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!

Late Sept trip

We have not previously visited Brecon before but decided on it as it was not far from home and had serviced pitches. We booked for 5 nights - my husband, myself plus our dog. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly warden who explained the checking in procedure. The warden in the office gave us a site plan and explained we were to look for the red pitch numbers. The only vacant pitches of this type were in a row together, we pitched up. The traffic noise was mentioned in the site details, which we were prepared for; however the disturbing noise was the sound of the rumble strips on the A40 as the roundabout was approached by traffic. This was more or less constant but slightly less overnight. After 2 nights we managed to get a vacant serviced pitch further away from the road - problem solved, much quieter. The site details also mentioned that there was a nearby wedding venue which might produce some noise, but given that we were not staying a Saturday night, and the current restrictions on large weddings meant that we did not feel it a problem. However, what we were not prepared for was the noise of the firing range from the barracks over the road. This happened every week day we were there. Unfortunately our dog hates the sound of gunfire and tries to hide or bury herself somewhere when it happens. We do appreciate that this is well out of the control of the wardens, but a little mention in the site details might have forewarned us of the problem. The site itself is well spaced and clean, with spotless toilet facilities. Given the current situation it is obvious that the wardens work hard to keep it that way. The shop was excellent with a wide range of food, newspapers and general camping hardware all reasonably priced. The opening hours were suitably long enough and the staff very friendly and helpful. All in all the site is excellent, and if you get the right pitch - peaceful.

Excellent site

Very good site only let down by the covid restrictions which are everywhere anyway. luckily I did not bring the dog as she would not have liked the local firing range which I had forgotten all about as I have not been this way in some years. Normally I would think this is a really good site with plenty of walking and cycling around and also the steam railway over near Merthyr Tydfil near the waterfall. I have walked a lot around here and it certainly keeps you fit. I will return.

Road noise unbelievable!

This is an excellent site very clean good space between pitches staff friendly and helpful, pitch was level with plenty of room all the way around it. Facilities were as stated in other reviews clean and well maintained. The only thing that was awful was the traffic noise which never stopped during the day and night! This must be the busiest road junction in the country, everything from motorbikes drag racing up the road to really heavy lorries braking hard to stop at the roundabout. So if you are a light sleeper like me don't except to find this a relaxing site, did get a little quieter on Friday night so maybe the same over the weekends.

What a wonderful 4 nights we had at this superb site 6th-10th Sept.

This was our first time out with our little renovated Caravan and we had the most wonderful, memorable time! Firstly we would like to thank the amazingly kind staff in reception that welcomed us. We are in our 70's and husband has a cancer with chemo drugs given daily. The importance of being COVID safe was so much the case for us. We were given our wrist bands for the hooks outside of the disabled toilet and shower facilities in order that my being secure would also be maintained. We asked about the barrier access and were given our card to activate it with no problems what so ever and found that easy to use. If we had any other concerns we asked there and then and could not have felt more welcome or safe. Our pitch was awesome and the opportunity to pick up tiny fir cones a happy memory for me as it had been so long since I had been near enough to do this ~ a simple thing that many would see as a nuisance but for us it was just a blessing! A staff member came and saw us into the pitch which was such a help, he levelled the van for us and said we could ask for help at anytime. The following morning this kind staff member and a lovely female member knocked gently on our door to see that we were both okay, they were smart in their uniform and extremely approachable. What more could anyone want! The toilet facilities were the cleanest we have ever seen in either a hotel or public convenience in the past and smelled lovely and fresh no matter what time of day. Everyone took consideration towards others and it was peaceful and and dropping off to sleep was immediate for us. Wales is a beautiful country and the people care for their country, no litter on the verge of the roads anywhere that we went and Brecon Beacons Caravan and Motorhome Site is an absolute credit to this country. We love Wales and we will be going back a.s.a.p! Thank you to the club and members for such a wonderful stay for us!
