Similar to previous reviews. Liked it enough to stay a second week.

Relaxed and friendly staff. It is a working farm but largely invisible from sites

Large pitches for vans. There were a couple of large groups passing through during stay but didn’t have a problem with shower or toilets.

It's a lovely site in a wonderful location, ideal for cycling or walking straight from the site. There is a local bus along the Usk valley so you can easily explore further afield.

The pitches are huge and the site is maintained to a very high standard. The toilet facilities are quite small for such a large site but they are kept clean and well looked after.

The pubs in the village are all very friendly and The White Hart does nice food.

What a super friendly site!

I can only repeat the other reviews that the pitches are huge, Lydia and her friendly team keep everything spotless and tidy and are always there to help out!

The village is 5 minutes walk away, 3 pubs - we ate at the White Hart and the Star - both good food but the Star is cosier and has more atmosphere.

The village shop has all the basics and does a super breakfast deal for £3!

Loads of walks - along the canal, up Pen y Fan and others, Talybont orchard trail to name a few.

We came for 2 nights and stayed 6!

There have been many previous reports on this site, but having just returned from Talybont Farm having enjoyed 5 days of excellent camping weather, I thought I would add our recent experiences.

I have, on a few previous years attempted to book this site for a long weekend to be told it was fully booked, an indication of its popularity. This year I was determined to visit so booked in February for June, Mon-Fri. That worked!

Upon arrival we were advised of our pre-allocated pitch in the Tent Field. This was a very well maintained, near level, pitch with recently cut short grass, so not cuttings in the tent! This grass even had mowing stripes on it. The ground was firm but not stony. The pegs needed a few blows from our rarely used mallet.

We I didn’t experience any wait for the “facilities” which were clean and well maintained.

Several groups of youths were staying in their separate fields. It is good to see them experiencing the outdoor adventure life. It has to be said that from what I saw they were well behaved, although I understand the “Ladies” was a bit of a “war zone” on occasions.

The canal opposite the campsite offered interesting easy walks and leads to two nearby pubs that are in the village. It was very pleasant to sit by the canal after a busy day with drinks exchanging pleasantries with the passing boats. That said, everyone at the campsite too seemed friendly and conversations easy.

Nearby Brecon is an interesting town with many independent shops and cafes. It even has Banks! It is a credit to what a town centre can be like as it still co-exists with several larger supermarket chains.

We climbed Pen y Fan and Corn Du and enjoyed the spectacular views from the top of these at about 3000 ft.

To get to the Tent Field you need to go through the larger main field which is equipped with EHU’s. The pitches seem well spaced and have open views. The disadvantage in being in the Tent Field, is that it is a three and a half minute “trudge” to the “facilities”. This needs to be borne in mind if the weather is inclement or the call urgent.

This is a very peaceful place with no road noise, but is a working farm so there are occasional noises.

Overall though from our experience I don’t think camping can get better than our stay at Talybont Farm.

We will return….

What a fantastic site! The pitches are huge and the site is very flat. The location is superb. With fantastic walking and cycling opportunities. You can walk/cycle along the canal to the quaint town of Brecon, where there is a superb Ghurka restaurant, along with the usual, array of supermarkets.

You can walk on to the Brecons or to Talybont reservoir from the site and I am sure there are a multitude of places you can reach without ever having to use your vehicle.

There is a basic pitch fee and then you pay for anything over and above that, so it is extra for children, dogs, day visitors etc.

There are 2 male and 2 female showers and toilets, as well as a unisex one at the farm house, All showers are free.

The owner keeps a fairly high but unobtrusive profile on the site and this is reassuring.

Even though the site was full, it is very clean, quiet and laid back, attracting families, pensioners. DoE participants and groups of friends. Yet not once was there any disruption or thoughtless behaviour, everyone was incredibly friendly.

There were a lot of dogs on site, but all were under control and there was no dog mess. There is however no dedicated dog walking area, within the site.

I would 100% visit this site again.

A great site in a great location. Pitches are level and spacious and the toilets and showers clean and tidy. Fabulous views of the beacons.

Great location for walking/cycling the canal tow path and Taff trails as well as the brecon beacons.
