 On our first night we stayed with electric hook up close to the toilet and shower block, it was fine but the river bank is very steep in that part, so we moved for the second night to the next field at the western end of the site which was ideal although no electric hook up available there, very quiet and peaceful.

There is some traffic noise from the nearby A40.

Dave, the site warden, was friendly and helpful; the site is kept in good condition, and the toilets and showers are clean and tidy.

Will definitely be going back.

 Amazing place! We were a little apprehensive starting to camp again after lockdown, but they have made us feel so welcome and assured. The campsite is absolutely spotless!

We can not fault them, and will definitely stay here again for sure.

Thank you UKCampsite for the recommendation! Your service was fantastic 👍🏼

 The campsite is situated roughly 4 miles from Brecon town centre. There's a bus stop at the end of the road allowing easy access to the town centre if you don't want to drive or walk.

The campsite was well preened with the caravan field being very level.

The warden - Dai - was lovely and also very helpful.

The facilities seemed to struggle to cope with the volume of people with queues at times for the washing facility.

The showers could do with renovating but aside from that it was a pleasant place to visit.

The cost for the two nights including electricity was £52.

 Lovely campsite right next to the River Usk. Great warm welcome from Dai the warden and his wife, Shower/ toilet block is very clean, children’s play area with swings, slide, monkey bars etc. Is great for the kids, lots other families stayed there when we were there and all kids got on great with one another, kids swam in river everyday and used tree swing to jumping into river ( and Dads, lol),

campsite is lovely and flat and very well kept our youngest daughter learned to ride bike without stabilisers for first time on the grass here.

Aberbran farm cream tea’s next door to site are lovely and can try out PYO fruit if like, campsite only 3 miles from Brecon which is lovely town.

Recommend this site and will definitely be returning.

 I stayed here with my family with young children. It is quite a basic campsite of simple fields but was fairly peaceful with people lighting fires in the evening which added to a nice ambience. We had a pleasant welcome and I found the facilities perfectly adequate and given the low price it seems to be value for money!

 Had a fantastic time at this site. Extremely helpful Warden who went out of his way to help us, even gave us tea bags, as we had ran out (shock, horror). Lovely setting with river running through, we pitched up next to it and it was lovely to look at whilst drinking our morning cuppa. Lots of seasonals there and they were all really friendly. The children all played football, rounders together, and they made our kids feel very welcome. They made lots of friends. There is also a small play area. The pyo fruit was fab and they also sold cream teas and cakes. At the end of the road there is a bus stop, where the buses can take you into Brecon town. Toilets and showers were clean and new looking, there were only two toilets and two showers but we never had to queue. Also a disabled toilet and shower available. We will definitely be returning to this site.

 The cut down 45 gallon drums used for fire pits have gone, and we now have proper fire baskets available from David (daiwelly) with a £10 deposit which is refunded on return of the fire Basket. Fire's are allowed only along the edge of the field (riverside.

The toilet block is now fully centrally heated.

Pricing has been held at 2015 level the site is still the cheapest in Brecon area if not Powys.

 We used this site as a base for a birthday relaxation weekend for my girlfriend and our dogs.

A very friendly and inviting phone booking was followed by a similar welcome on site. It was fairly quiet so we had a lot of choice for our pitch.

EHU was nicely located and there was a plesant river which the dogs liked.

The owner of the site was a great help and really went out of his way to make us welcome and to help us with walking routes.

The facilities were nice and clean and warm.

The farm dog had some puppies when we were there, which we were invited to see.

We liked it and are going back at the end of February.

 This was our 2nd visit to the site during 'Brecon Fringe' think Jazz but all the different types of music you can think of, something for everyone and it's free. When arriving on the site I booked in with Dave who is very helpful with loads of local information and provided us with en extension lead for my EH at no extra cost as my lead was a bit short.

The site itself is set in beautiful countryside but not far from Brecon Town which cost just £1:85 to get to on the bus the bus stop is just 200metres from the campsite and the buses run hourly. The facilities on site are spotless with hot showers and an area for washing dishes and a small play area for the kids. I can't recommend this site enough and will be there again next year for the 'Fringe' brilliant weekend if you like music it's perfect with over 35 venues all with a different band (or 4) starting at about 1pm and not finishing until the early hours so you will need some staying power
