Lovely quiet site

We stayed here for a week in May and found it a lovely site. It was easy to find and access, and the pitches are a good size. The facilities are clean and the owners are friendly. You can walk directly from the site if you want and it is an ideal location for touring the Beacons. We would definitely come back to stay here when we come back to this area.

Perfect for beacons

The site is well marked on the main road and has good access. Welcoming owner at reception in farm yard. Facilities have been updated on the shower side but do take your flip flops as floor can be left wet. 50p for 5 minutes and the shower was hot. I suggested a mop or squeegee be put out for use. There is a tent field and facilities are shared but that is reflected in the price of pitch. Hardstandings are a good size with hookups in easy reach. The grass between pitches was an acceptable length. This is a working farm with associated mooing but is not an issue. Access to walking is excellent with a short walk direct from site and for those looking to hit the hills the site is very close to all the western black mountains and beacons area. River at back of field did not rise during heavy rain during our stay. Brecon has decent shops etc. Gas available near site. Enjoyable stay at a site which has addressed some negative comments from previous users.

Hidden gem

Great CL on a working farm, located a few miles from Brecon itself. Perfectly situated to enjoy all the area has to offer. Huge site, easy access, with hardstanding pitches and next to a stream (saw a Heron fishing on our first day). Clean toilet/shower block and recycling bins nearby. Dont expect luxury here but this suited us down to the ground. Easy walks from the site along the stream where we picked blackberries on the way to cook up a crumble when we got back. Unspoilt site which we will return to!

A short break and we'll be back!

OK this is at the heart of a working farm with associated sounds, aromas, and a few flies. Get past that and it's a little gem. The spacious hard standing pitches each with hook up are laid out in a horseshoe. The 2 toilets and separate showers which were kept very clean are attached to the house. This site is great value and in a lovely location. We will be back for a longer stay! This has the potential to be a really great site. It's still new and not quite there yet. The welcome in the excellent cafe / farm shop was friendly and we were left to find ourselves a pitch. These are all large flat and fully serviced if looking a bit unkempt, partly due to the weather. The facilities were in modern portaloos however work had started on the permanent ones. The hot tub pitches were popular but not for us. The access roads are becoming a bit pot holed and it does lack some facilities although these are planned, hence my first comment. It was remarkably quiet for absolutely peak season as was the area which offers plenty to do from traditional seaside through to market towns and other more athletic pursuits.

It's lovely but......

This site has excellent facilities, 2 showers and 2 toilets, and several hard standings making it an all year CL......even in Wales! It is a working farm so there is some noise from farm machinery but that didn't bother us and neither did the slight road noise. Access is easy. Location is excellent - you can walk into Brecon down a quiet lane in about 40mins and you can also walk directly onto The Beacons. TV reception not great and phone reception on O2 and Three OK. The problem is that the owners, who are very friendly but can't always be found to sell their excellent eggs, seem to have forgotten the rule over number of members allowed on site. Several nights it was 7 vans and on one occasion it was 8. We will return.

IDYLLIC SETTING

We have just experienced a fantastic week at this wonderful CL. The site is easily reached on major roads, good, clear, large access to the site. Generous sized hard standing pitches and no leveling blocks required. As a working farm, we were not surprised that no one was available to meet us, this was not a problem and we met Paula later. This is a lovely site with a delightful river and waterfalls alongside, very sheltered with plenty of trees on the perimeter but open to the sun on the pitches. Ideally situated to enjoy all the stunning scenery and places of interest, the Beacons have to offer. We had our two dogs with us who enjoyed the water and the numerous walks that led from the site. There are recycling facilities on site, Two well kept toilets and two modern showers giving 5 minutes of very hot water for 50p, a bargain. A very peaceful and relaxed site with friendly owners. well recommended.

Visited in October

This site had everything we could have wanted, clean toilets & showers, which is important to us as we run every day. A footpath from the site takes you over the rivers & out into the country side. yes there is some farm noise, but at no time did it become invasive & yes the grass was a little long, but this did not cause any problems. This truly is a working farm & as such the owners were very busy but very helpful. We recommend the walk into Brecon to make the pint or cake justified. Will visit again.

Lovely quiet location.

We stayed here in February half term. We were lucky with lovely crisp Autumnal weather and as this site is surrounded by trees it was beautiful. We walked every day, up to the waterfalls which is just s short walk up the hill from the site. We spent a lovely day in Brecon which is about 45 mins walk away. Lovely town with lots of dog friendly places to eat. Also did a longer circular walk. All walks straight from the site. The facilities were basic but clean and the owner very welcoming and told us about the walks. We agree that visitors need to respect that this is a working farm so there will be working noise however this did not bother us at all. We will certainly return.

Downmarket and neglected

To start with the positives, this site is in a good location for easy access to the mountains and the canal. Access to the site itself is very easy along a short track from a very busy main road. The downside for us was the fact that there were always between six and eight caravans or motorhomes on this site every night. I notice from a previous review in 2012 the same thing was happening then. The next problem was the fact that the grass had clearly not been cut for many weeks. The hard standing (just gravel) areas were overgrown with weeds and uneven. Finally, the short access road to the site had many really large potholes in it which were quite difficult to avoid. It is also not the most peaceful of sites with constant traffic and farmyard vehicle noise during the day. The overall impression of this site was one of neglect . I do not think that CL sites require a lot of maintenance so a bit of grass cutting and filling in a few potholes (especially as they've probably got the machinery to do this) it's not a lot to expect. We definitely will not be returning.

Quiet site by lovely river

We recently stayed 5 nights at this lovely little site. It's on a working farm with easy vehicular access off the main road - the site is down a short drive and, because it's down a slight slope, there is little noise from the road. Each pitch is a hardstanding with electric - fairly flat (our neighbours used chocks but we didn't). There are two loos and two showers - all are basic but clean (and the showers were better than some posher sites!) - as well as water taps and septic waste. The loos are in a little stone building on your right as you face the farmhouse from the drive and the showers are on the corner of the main farmhouse. Water & septic adjacent to the loos. There's bins for general waste as well as recycling. Showers are 50p for 5 minutes which (even with very long hair that takes a while to wash) was more than ample time. The river runs round the site and is very pretty - the best place to look at it is from the two footbridges at the back of the site (across the camping field next to the caravan field, below the main farm house, turn right at the end of the building, follow the narrow path round to the footbridge). Taking the same route, you can access a quiet lane and walk into Brecon (turn left when you get to the lane) or turn right on the lane , go over the stone road bridge then turn left up a footpath on the next bend - this path joins up to the Taff Trail after about 10 - 15 minutes walking. We walked to the visitor centre near Libanus (well worth a visit) as well as various walk up Pen Y Fan and adjacent hills and also into Brecon. We were here to walk so didn't go out to any other attractions. We thought the site was excellent value and very much to our taste. You have to remember it is a working farm - the owners clearly work long hours so may not be there every minute of the day; having said that, we found no problem getting hold of them. Also, being a working farm, you get a few moos from the resident cattle but there was nothing that disturbed us (let's face it, a mooing cow is 10 times better than most town noises!). we both wished we could have stayed longer. TV signal was ok.
