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!

Nice site in a good location

Our first COVID trip away. I was impressed by the safety measures in place and the cleanliness of all facilities. Good site and close enough to be able to walk to Brecon along the canal. Dog walking area was well kept. Great shop on site supplying basic caravan items as well as the usual foodstuff etc.

Sept stay

Lovely large site with spacious pitches. Excellent dog walk in the woods. Facilities clean and covid safe. Wristband system seems to baffle some guests, at least twice I came out of the facilities and my wristband had gone and I was left with someone else's. As we don't like to take the motorhome out too much we usually use public transport to visit different places but due to covid we didn't feel we should so probably didn't see as much of the area as we would have liked. However, lovely walking in the local area, the canal in either direction, pen y fan and the waterfalls from the local village of Llanfrynach. The site is situated on a busy road junction so is fairly noisy but the road noise didn't bother us too much. However the noise of the local firing range was horrendous, every weekday for approx 3 hrs. Our dog hated it. I feel there should be something regarding this in the site details. The 3 horseshoes pub up the road only seemed to want to let us sit outside, even when there was space inside, which was OK while the weather was warm but we avoided it after it turned cold. Presumably a sign of covid times.

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.
