Fantastic stay here. Loved it. So quiet and the scenery is amazing. We stayed over Easter near the stream. It was lovely walking about after all the cave customers had left as the field still has animals in it.

Very quiet and relaxing and friendly and helpful warden. No rubbish and the showers were clean too.

Very reasonably priced and dogs are free.

Shall definitely return.

Fantastic level pitches, each with hook up, water and grey waste point but not great value at £25/night in October! Warden is a lovely man and all the staff at the caves are excellent too.

Each (separate gender) shower block has three showers and wc’s which whilst the site was very quiet wasn't a problem but I can only imagine that earlier in the season it must be ‘queued around the block’.

Tiny dish washing area for three people at a time.

The Gwyn Arms is about a ten minute amble by turning left out of the site. Fabulous home cooked food and the home made chips are lush.

Great site for walking the southern mountains of the Brecon Beacons or visiting the caves.

A true gem. The staff are very helpful, it is in a great position, great toilet block and little else (Tesco is just 12 minutes away at Ystradgynlais SA9 1AD) The price is also good. You can go horse riding from there as well, and the Tafarn-y-Garreg Pub about ten minutes north (the second pub along) is just great.

Definitely worth a shot. I would go back without hesitation. Buy the booklet on aeroplane crash sites in the Brecons then go out and try to find one:)

The site is adjacent to crag y nos caves, just of the main road. Camping area very well maintained flat areas for pitches.

Very modern toilet and shower block. Few midges in area. Pubs about 5 min walk.

Wonderful site. Lots of nooks and crannies to pitch in. Nice facilities. Including a drying room. Wonderful views of the hills with some walks just off site. The showcaves are brilliant, as is the dinosaur park.

Great value for money. One of my all time favourite sites. A staff member even let me use the phone to call home as the mobile matt was down for repair. Brilliant

Reviewer: Madasaman 38 reviews from this member

Stayed here for two nights. Easy access even though roadways are a bit on the narrow side. Flat pitches, hardstanding and all with electric. Three showers and toilets for the men, which were kept clean, even though there were a lot of clientèle.

Short walk to the cave network, £14 adult entrance, this also covers the shire horse entry. All in all a good site and one we will return to.

The Gwyn Arms is a short walk away and we ate there both nights. Good welcome.

Just back from a lovely (if rainy) stay at this campsite.

It is a very laid back campsite and you can choose your own pitch. There are various areas aimed at adults only, families and quiet zones.

The shower blocks are clean and comfortable and staff friendly.

A critique would be that you have to pay for under 3's and there is an electric fence surrounding some areas so not completely child friendly.

A major down fall of this campsite is the midges! They were around all day and I have to say become a real nuisance despite covering ourself in insect repellent. Clearly this is a natural hazard of the beautiful surroundings and out of the control of the owners but those prone to being bitten should probably reconsider!

What a cracking place, our second visit here.

The whole place is spotless clean, lovely warm showers.

Peace and quiet guaranteed. Its a credit to mr price the owner who is none stop working on site trying to ensure that everyone is enjoying their stay. We would recommend this site to the Queen

We have found a haven in this place. Just a short distance from the site, is the award winning caves for everyone to enjoy a great day out, we will definitely be back.

Top marks. An excellent site, well maintained very clean, warden checking all the time that no litter etc is about. The facilities spot on and all the pitches are hard standing and flat, easy to set up with awning.

Very spacious and each pitch has its own EHU point with water in and waste out. We had never heard of these caves and everyone we asked didn't seem to know either but they are there and absolutely fabulous and make for an excellent day out.

Dinosaur attraction, Shire horses and various animals are also a part of the Cave complex. This is not visible from the caravan park which is in lovely natural surroundings. If you are walker, then you are in the right place. We had 9 days of glorious sunshine only raining the day before we came home and early on the day of leaving. If we are that way again would certainly use.

The price is right as well although there were indications that it may go up slightly next year. If its peace and quiet you want and beautiful countryside. This is the place to be. Jean/John older caravanners.

I am a member of the Weekend Wanderers and we stay at Dan Yr Ogof Caravan site at least twice a year. What a lovely site to stay. The staff are really helpful and polite.

The toilet and shower block is always spotless and heated, there is always running hot water. There is never overfull bins and the litter is picked up at least twice a day around the site. Ashford is a particularly nice, chatty person and very hard working and always has the best interests of the people staying on his site at heart.

The pitches are all hard standing, although there is plenty of grass for campers. The caves are great and a wonderful attraction. There are also great walks to be found around and about this location.
