 Lovely site with lovely people running it.

Bus stop just outside takes you to Brecon or Abergavenny,

The local pub is by the canal which runs pass the campsite walking or cycling along the towpath is to be recommended

 This site is managed very well, the facilities are excellent and clean

Plus the site shop stocks the essentials.

The grounds are well kept with lush grass, and there's an abundance of shrubs and trees.

A canal runs along side the site, and it's a short walk to a pub.

It's a great base for outdoor activities, and site seeing.

Don't take my word for it - see for yourself.

 As others have said a beautiful site, well cared for and extremely clean facilities that were cleaned not only during the scheduled slot but early morning and late at night.

Staff very helpful.

No dogs accepted.

The local pub is very popular so book a table for food! Welsh lockdown rules apply!

Reviewer: Homebrewstermatthew 15 reviews from this member

 As other reviews have said, this is a lovely site which is very well maintained.

Staff couldn’t be more helpful; my Calor ran out half way through cooking dinner at 7pm! Although the shop was long closed by that point, the staff team couldn’t have been more happy to help me out and so I could finish cooking dinner.

You can cycle for miles along the nearby canal and walking up to fan-y-big was amazing.

The Royal Oak pub is 5/10 minute walk away and serves some truly delicious food.

We had a lovely time here and very much looking forward to returning in the future.

I marked the location as ‘9’ only because it was a very long walk to and from the local peaks. If we’d had a car it might have been better to drive part of the way so we could have maximised out time walking the peaks.

 This is a beautiful and well run site.

The pitches are well laid out and large. The facilities are second to none. Everything was well maintained and clean. The grounds and surrounding scenery are stunning.

We found it very peaceful and quiet and wish we could have had longer there.

Unfortunately we had to leave early due to illness but the site receptionist could not have been more helpful. It made a bad situation much easier to deal with.

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

Obviously we couldn’t use the facilities or shop due to the COVID restrictions but it didn’t 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
