Description is deceiving

There is no question this CL is set in a wonderful part of the Brecon Beacons with perfect access to Brecon and Pan Y Fan. Our one night stay was OK, but at no point when looking into staying in the site did we read that both sides of the CL motorhome field has adjacent fields full of campers in tents. Arguably, if we had thoroughly read back through all reviews we would have discovered this, BUT, from their description this is not mentioned, hence our title, "Description is deceiving". Watching the tent folks in a permanent que to the 4 toilets made us glad we are in a motorhome, however, not sure how 2 showers can serve 3 fields (over 20 tents) and the motor homes who wanted to use the showers. No noise control after 11 pm either so would not call it quiet or peaceful either. Sadly quite a harsh review but we felt this is a perfect place spoilt by the tented fields.

Lovely 5 nights stay.

It would have been helpful to have had some instructions as to where to go. Where we were situated we could hear those camping in the adjacent field even though there was a large hedge between us. We couldn’t have had a better place to explore the surrounding area. The walk into Brecon is steady stroll, while the hike up Pen y Fan from the site covers some mileage so pack a flask, sandwiches & the jelly babies. If whisky is your thing then Penderyn distillery is a 20 minute drive away & they sell whiskies, vodka & rum which is on their wed site. The site & surrounding area is very beautiful, we were near a babbling stream which at night laid in bed window open listening to it I found really relaxing. All in all a great stay & we will be back as there is so much to see, walk & hike other than Pen y Fan. So thank you Paula.

Great weekend

Despite the poor weather our weekend here was excellent, brilliant location and site is well laid out, Paula made us very welcome. Ideally situated for walks to Brecon and into the Beacons. This was our first visit but will not be our last one of the best CL's we have visited, thank you.

Fantastic stay

We’ve just come back from a 3 night stay at this site and loved it. Very easy access to get to it. We have an 11 year old and 6 year old and they loved the farm. From the miniature donkeys, cows, chickens, and Dalmatians. Paula was very welcoming as soon as we arrived. We chose a pitch by the river which was beautiful. Paula also very kindly took us into the barn to see the 3 month old kid goat, the 6 week old lambs and we were very lucky to see a baby calf only 12 hours old....such a delight to see. If you go through the tent pitch, across the wooden bridges and turn left there is a quiet lane/road where you can walk all the way into Brecon centre. It is a lovely walk and took us about 40 mins. We were able to have a lovely meal outside at the local Wetherspoons. We will definitely be returning. Thank you Paula :)

Perfect Beacons adventure base

We spent three nights here and can't speak highly enough of it. Stunning walks and cycling from the site itself, including up to a magical waterfall that you can swim under, and further on to Pen y Fan for the adventurous. We had the pitch closest to the river and loved the sound of the running water. Fire pits for rent and great star gazing at night. The one picture on the site does this CL no justice at all. Superb.

lovely site ... but

Great location and mostly well-spaced pitches. Well provided with all the facilities required. Very welcoming and pleasant Owner. Great walks direct from campsite and really nice river adjoining. Careful when approaching as it's easy to miss the entrance. I would have given this site top marks but for two factors: It is apparent that with seven hard-standings available this site often has more than the maximum of five residents. Biggest problem from a peace and quiet perspective is that there is an adjoining tent field. After a week of relaxing quiet atmosphere, the final two days of our break were filled with noise from close and loud teams of tenters with barking dogs, who did not seem to leave the site. Shame.

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.
