The web-site explains well: this is a one field site, one side with semi-permanent caravans (half a bit scrubby, most flying Welsh flags and satellite dishes)the other side for tents- flat and and edging the river.

For a popular week-end the site was not busy, plenty of space for our 2 families 5 (5/6 yr old) children to run around. The surrounding countryside is beautiful, as are the views beyond the campsite, the site is by the A40 which (on the Sunday) had plenty of racing/touring motor-bikes.

The facilities were perfectly adequate and well kept.

We had 2 problems with campers playing amplified/car music (one from the site over the river)and when asked to turn it down they obliged. However, other peoples' amplified/car music is not what I want to be dealing with on a weekends camping.

Just got back from site love the location is very idyllic. But oh the mud and then some more mud. Hardcore is non existent the track to all pitches is full of craters full of water & mud. If you don't posses wellies then your are in trouble. There are no paths to toilets & showers just great expanse of mud. So this meant that the floors of the facilities were muddy to say the least.

Electrics were a bit on the low voltage side as the whole site tripped a fuse twice, we were told to use gas appliances as much as possible costing us a small fortune as it was cold. Luckily we were only staying for the Easter bank Holiday.

This was our second visit to the site we were informed the price had risen substantially so we assumed that the facilities had improved. Last year when we stayed we knew it was cheap & cheerful with a very friendly owner which is fine but not when you are paying a good price to stay.

I must say in fairness to Andy when we pointed out our disappointments to him he agreed with our valid points and reimbursed some of our payment.

I would say if you happen to stay when the weather is good it would be a fantastic site.

Also I would like to mention we had a two year old in our group so beware of the river, it can be fast flowing and there is no fence to stop children falling in.

Just spent a long weekend here in our camper van, man what a find. First off, Andy the owner is a top guy, the site facilities are ample and adequate, the showers and toilets are built in wooden sheds and are kept clean and tidy. The field is perfectly level and has hard standing and grass pitches, we opted for EHU and was surprised to find a pitch right by the river, literally 10 feet away, and to top it all Andy the owner allows camp fires, but they have to be contained in an old cut in half oil drum, not a problem though.

We read reviews for this site before we went so we were armed with three bags of logs in readiness, man the wife couldn't wait for it to get dark. On the friday night we had a camp fire with the obligatory toasted marsmallows and all the latecomers were looking at us as though we were doing something wrong, but then on the Saturday night the whole row of campers by the river had roaring log fires toasting marshmallows.

Nothing there apart from sheer peace and quiet, the animal and owl noises at night were great. Daytime we cycled into brecon, lovely ride through real quiet country lanes, took about 30mins. There is a small community of seasonal caravaners there and you can see they all get on very well, only down side, Dog owners who do not look after their dogs, most were kept on a leash but one was free to roam and cock his leg over anyones water barrel, most unhygienic.

If you are looking for a weekend peace and quiet, trust me you will love it. I just hope not too many people discover it.

Aberbran Fawr Farm is easy to find off the A40 near Brecon. Check in at the farmhouse and then pitch-up in the field on the left beside the River Usk. The field is level with short grass and has electrical hook-ups down one side. Facilities are basic but clean - there is no hot water tap for washing up but the two private shower rooms have free hot showers and include a toilet, sink and plenty of coat hooks. There are two other self-contained toilet and sink units. Andy (the Farmer) is an excellent host and provided a fire pit and logs to enjoy a real camp fire beside our tent; he also sells fresh eggs from the farm. There are a couple of rope swings hanging from trees near the river which our children enjoyed playing on. This is a very relaxed site with friendly campers, some of whom return each year.

There are several footpaths nearby. If you walk over the bridge beside the site and continue to the next farm house, you'll see an ancient pedestrian only 'stone and earth' bridge on the right crossing 'Nant Bran' stream. The footpath then continues through some fields in the direction of Aberyscir. We stayed in August so the PYO season was coming to an end, but would not hesitate to return again to enjoy this site.

Don't want to share it but a brilliant site. Owners very helpful and always there despite running a busy farm. Spotless facilities, two showers and four toilets. Beautiful location for great walks in brecon beacons, brecon near for good shops. Kids love the river and campfires welcome. Loved it and will be back if they have space. Thanks for a great time

We have just got back from a 2 night stay on this site. We were very impressed. It is very basic surrounded by beautiful scenery and I haveto say sat around the camp fire watching the night sky full of stars was idelic we don't see stars like that around the built up Midlands!

The toilets and showers are in purpose built sheds, they could do with up dating but are very clean and are all you really need for a back to basics holiday!

There were a LOT of moths in there. I know this isn't the campsites fault. But I hate moths so sat on loo in dark!

There could do with being a few more toilets and showers too. On the Thurs night it was quiet so didn't bother us much but Friday night got quite busy so there was an occasional wait. I am nit picking here, because we would return to this site in a heart beat.
