Local Attractions

There are many sights, experiences, and some beautiful scenery to be appreciated and explored in the Brecon Beacons and surrounding areas. It would be impossible to list everything you might enjoy doing but this is just a taster...

Walkers

The walk up Pen y Fan takes in the highest peak in the Brecon Beacons and, weather permitting, some stunning views. There is a shorter walk from the Storey Arms (20 minutes by car) or a longer trek around the horseshoe. If you have never visited the Beacons this is the walk you must do! Henrhyd falls are a National trust site within a 30 minute walk of the campsite and are the tallest falls in Wales. The same walk will take you onto Sarn Helen a roman road that travels 160 miles through the heart of Wales.I can also recommend a longer walk taking in 4 waterfalls starting from Pontneddfechan (or for the braver from the campsite).

Cyclists

Perhaps the most famous cycle route in Wales is the Taff trail, a 55 mile track traveling between Cardiff and Brecon. This route can be picked up in Merthyr Tydfil which is 20 miles from our site.

Afan Argoed forest park is home to 4 world class single track mountain bike trails and is about a 20 minutes drive away.

Kids

Dan-yr-ogof show caves are a 5 minute drive away as well as being the largest show cave complex in Western Europe, also has a dinosaur park, iron age village and shire horse center.

Big Pit is a mining museum in Brynmawr (a 30 minute drive away) where you get to go 300 feet underground into a coal mine (for free!!!).

Cefn-yr-Erw is a primate rescue centre (a 5 minute drive) which welcomes visitors.

And the rest

Cardiff and Swansea provide many museums, activities and shops to explore.

The Welsh International Climbing Centre can help with indoor and outdoor climbs for beginners through to experts.

If you an experienced caver you might enjoy a trip to Porth-yr-ogof caves.

Other campers have enjoyed our local quad bike centre which will take individuals and groups on cross country adventures.
