 Wow, what a beautiful campsite, the first of two we stayed at this weekend, and gosh what a difference, this was small friendly accommodating, the fields were kept very tidy, it was calm quiet and tranquil, I immediately felt at ease on this site, toilets and shower blocks were large and very clean, even with people just stopping for the night and moving on, the site felt safe.

Well done, see you again soon.

 Excellent site in a beautiful peaceful setting, spacious pitches with own bit of privacy provided by hedge rows.

Lovely clean shower/toilet block along with ample fridges and dish washing facilities all cleaned regularly.

The site was busy but was pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was, great little local pub 150yds outside of camp and easy access onto the canal path which you can walk all the way into Brecon.

 Friendly welcome and given a choice of pitches which is always a bonus! Very nice grounds and very well kept. Pitch size varies but ours in The Oaks was spacious and had a lovely view of the hills beyond. Great location - ideal starting point for cycling, canoeing or just walking along the canal. Clean and plentiful washrooms. Useful info room. A great campsite which we'd definitely return to. Only downside was that nothing was done about a noisy group of boys who thought it was ok to kick balls over other people's pitches.

Reviewer: Ringo the Smurf 3 reviews from this member

 We stayed at the site for just one night, mid-week in March. The site was very well laid out with excellent facilities; from access to fridge freezers and drying room to the high standard toilet and shower block.

We walked to the local village (Talybont) 2 miles along the Canal and had dinner in the The White Hart pub which had a roaring fire and excellent menu.

We found the campsite to be very well placed for walking and could definitely spend longer exploring. The pitches were a good size and not crammed in at all.

We did find the site was very expensive out of season (>14 a night without EHU) so would not visit in the peak season. 

Date of Visit: August 2013 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: Walthams 26 reviews from this member

 Excellent site with impressive facilities. Layout makes a pleasant change from traditional caravan club site

On Taff Trail and also Brecon & Monmouth canal providing a choice of routes to cycle in to Brecon. Next village of Talybont is worth a visit particularly to The Star which is a proper real ale pub. The pub in Pencelli (The Royal Oak?) is good but keeps odd opening times such as closing at 3 pm in the height of the holiday season

Fairly pricey site but excellent facilities. If staying for more than 2-3 days you might want to way up how much you would benefit from the facilities. Probably a different equation for a motorhome than a tent

 A lovely site about 2 miles from Brecon. The site is very well kept with modern clean toilet block, drying room, which was very well heated, and a nice playground.

The campsite is split into 3 areas - Hardstanding, Tents/cravans with some electric hookup, and a tents only ares with spacious pitches.

Its a campsite for the descerning camper and would suit those who enjoy walking or cycling. The Taff Trail runs close to the site and is good for walking and cycling.

The owners are friendly but unobtusive.

Will definitely visit again.

There are 2 good pubs in the nearby village.

 Stopped just 1 night with the tent whilst travelling on motorbikes. We have stopped here before in the caravan and love it. This is the second best site I have ever stayed at, very clean, toilets and showers are spotless. Nice on site shop. Well kept site and flower beds. The only bad point I have is the price, 1 night in a tent was 23 which is quite steep but I suppose you get what you pay for. There is a lovely canal walk just yards away. Its a nice walk into tallbont on usk where there are 2 pubs which serve food.

Reviewer: Thebrindo 3 reviews from this member

 We visited this site regularly a few years back but stopped camping after our first child came along. This year we thought we'd have another go (now with 2 small kids) and picked Pencelli as we were familiar with it and it had never disappointed before. So glad we did. Still a fantastic site with spotless facilities all round. Agree with other reviewers that a shower/toilet block in the meadow would be useful but I suspect it would be a difficult undertaking. We now book in the oaks area for the EHU and the pitches there are great. Very roomy and split by little hedges so people are not forever walking right past as they are on some other sites.

I would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone, but book early as it gets busy quickly.

Reviewer: TAZ007 2 reviews from this member

 This was our first visit and wont be our last, the shower block and toilets are outstanding, clean tidy and pleasant, score 10 out of 10

The pitch and surrounding area again outstanding and well maintained, if you are pitched in the middle of the hook up points then you will require a lead longer than 25 meters as the are about 60 meters apart so be warned

Our stay was a peaceful and relaxing through out the day, and almost silent from 9 pm onwards considering the site was quite full I was pleasantly surprised

My only criticism is the pricing, can turn out to be rather expensive if you have kids and an awning and require electric, and for that reason we wont be having a family holiday here, but for a weekend break for two the I would say its well worth it

Reviewer: Russelandlesley 3 reviews from this member

 This was our first and last visit to the site. Yes the shower block & toilets are outstanding and kept very clean all of our stay. The pitch and site is well maintained but the trip to the loo and sinks with your dishes is far too far and the price for a tent for two is rather expensive. You need a second block in the meadow field for the campers. We also had children out playing at 7. 30 on the Saturday morning riding their bikes and playing in the trees. Not funny. The local pub serves really nice food. Sorry won't be back.
