 What an amazing site. So beautiful with well laid out pitches. Not cramped and very well kept.

Obviously we couldnít use the facilities or shop due to the COVID restrictions but it didnít hamper us at all.

We had lovely cycle rides on the very near by Brecon Canal towpaths. 2 miles to Talybont then you can go on to Crickhowell and 5 miles the other way to Brecon.

Lots of lovely narrow boats to see and wildlife in abundance. It will be great when the nearby pubs and eateries are reopen.

Very atmospheric in a very historical area. We will be booking here regularly. Lovely people and a quiet site.

 Superb site - had a picnic table - loads of walks with pubs on the way and you can walk down the canal to the shop.

Just fantastically run - will be back at some point I am sure.

Reviewer: JacqWHITNEY 2 reviews from this member

 WE liked the big camping field and the facilities including showers, freezers, indoor pot washer area and washing and drying facilities and of course the showers and toilets - very clean

We like the fact that no dogs allowed. We liked the fact that bikers are allowed

We liked the fact that there was a nice local pub where you could sit out and eat by the canal

We liked the deer next door and the goat

One of us did not like the fact that you had to walk so far through everyone's private area to get to the toilet and showers. The area with tents needs a toilet at least. It's too far for people of a certain age to rush to the loo.

We didn't liek the fact that it was near a main road (but not too noticeable)as the road was not too busy. One of us did not like the fact that the showere]s were not socially distanced.

It was a last minute choice as we usually choose somewhere a bit less posh but we were glad to get a place to stay with showers and toilets open! Thanks

 Excellent site, toilet block and showers. Hand sanitiser around site. Pub down road and walks along the canal.

Had a restful time despite being busy over the bank holiday weekend.

Will certainly return.

 Fantastic site, and the Covid-19 precautions well set up for these difficult times.

Even though the site was busy, you never felt like anyone was 'in your face' so to speak. I was in The Oaks field, with separate hedged off bays for everyone. The shared facilities block were spotless with enhanced cleaning in place to cope with Covid, social distancing was never an issue.

The site is adjacent to the canal with easy walking towards Brecon and Tal-y-bont and fairly easy access to walks in the Beacons themselves.

Just a nice relaxing place to stay. And couldn't fault the customer service when I originally booked dates before the Welsh Government had allowed the shared facilities to reopen, after contacting the site the booking was easily changed. Highly recommended site.

 Clean, well kept site in lovely location on the canal bank. Small shop, not open for the full season. Local pub, with good food just yards from the site.

Good, flat, walk/cycle, along the canal bank, into Brecon.

About 6 mile round trip. Nearest shop and cafe about a mile or so in the opposite direction, at Talybont on Usk.

Reviewer: Hobbits 20 reviews from this member

 We have been to this site 4 times over the last 10 years or so and it remains a firm favourite for a few simple reasons:

Location - just outside Brecon (which has is a lovely market town and has plenty of shops including a Morrisons) on the canal towards Abergavenney. The only shame is that there isn't a great view of the hills. But you can't blame the site for that!

Facilities - excellent. The shower blocks are always immaculate, plenty of showers, basins and toilets plus 2 family rooms for those with smaller children. The use of fridges and freezers as well. A decent playground for the children, and well looked after grounds around the whole site including wonderful flowers near the reception.

Atmosphere - it's a very relaxed site, popular with families and everyone obeys the few site rules (e. G. No noise after 10pm).

The grass is well kept and you can either stay in the first field which has (mostly) individual pitches separated by hedges, or go through into the Meadow where there is plenty of room for everyone and some shade offered by the large trees that are above the canal. Even when it is busy there is usually room for the kids to have a kickabout.

You can walk along the canal to Talybont where there are several good pubs, or the other way to Brecon. The area is stunning and Pencelli is a good base from which to explore. The staff are friendly and helfpul and the shop is reasonably well stocked when you discover you have forgotten something or just fancy an icecream! There is loads of information about the local area, walking and other activities.

We always recommend this site to first time campers or those who are more particular about the facilities, and no-one has ever been disappointed. A great site, we'll be back again!

 I've been visiting this site since 2012 & I've become a bit of a regular now. It's beautifully maintained the staff are lovely & because I'm a regular now we are on a first name basis.

With Brecon not being to far away shopping isn't a problem or you can go hiking or cycling so there's plenty to do but beware the weather can change quite suddenly so always be prepared.

I've only been once when the shop has been open as I'm often there out of season, it's pretty basic but it generally has all the things you need.

I'll definitely be visiting there again.
