General

  • Small family-run farm in the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Miles of hill, countryside and mountain walks all around
  • Just outside the village of Felindre

Hay you! Up for a wander in the Brecon Beacons? Fancy hoofing it around Hay Forest, going off-a to Offa’s Dyke, traversing the Taff Trail – and staying with friendly folk on a farm with views and sunsets that'll make your eyes water? Walk this way…

Newcourt Farm Campsite is the place to peel off your socks pitchside once you’re on your last legs: this small family-run farm in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Brecon Beacons National Park is used by wise wayfarers as a base for hiking the hills, mountains and countryside all around. Gliding, horse riding, fishing, golf and watersports are also available nearby; if you’re too puffed out to even think about any of that, this is a stellar spot for stargazing too.

The farm has clean showers, toilets and a washing-up area. Supervised school trips and groups such as Duke of Edinburgh Award seekers are welcome, and the site is dog-friendly.

For fuel, Newcourt Farm Campsite is just outside the village of Felindre, to pick up pub grub at the dog- and child-friendly Three Horseshoes pub.

Smelled better public toilets07/10/2020

    Lovey situated place not quite but almost that wild camp feel to it, has the basics the toilet block looked and smelled fresh and a stunning view

    Disliked: 

    The fact that the portaloos smelled like they hadn’t been emptied in a month or more literally smelled like fermented poo literally stomach churning smell from the outside, public toilets have smelled better and they get a pounding. lack of respect for fellow campers wanting to enjoy a quiet weeks kids were kept up all hours with adults being disrespectful shame really has potential with some decent rules in place

    Really welcoming owner. Plenty of room to spread out in our group and allow for social distancing. Good and clean toilet and washing up facilities. Beautiful scenery, did a circular walk from the campsite and a bit a cycling.
    Good fish and chips locally and not far from Hay on Wye.
    Would visit again.

    Disliked: 

    Facilities are not very clean and pretty basic. A lot of the ground is on a hill with not many flat places so not idea for campers as ideally you'd have a flat space. The extra porterloos in the different fields were handy, but there was no hand sanitiser which is surprising given COVID precautions.

Local attractions

Your boots will be made for walking: this corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park has footpaths and trails all around to warm you up before tackling the hill walks and mountains, and all in a spectacular part of Wales made up of valleys, waterfalls, caves and open countryside.

There are a couple of walks direct from Newcourt and two long-distance trails cross through the farm: the Offa’s Dyke Path on the eastern border of the national park and the Taff Trail running south from Brecon. The Brecon Beacons Park Society has a full programme of guided walks in the park from moderate to strenuous, and there are many routes and maps available from the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority (or just ask Newcourt Farm owner David to point you in the right direction).

The national park’s also where you can get your fill of climbing, birdwatching, caving, canoeing, sailing and other outdoor options; a visitor centre six miles from Brecon with all the info you might need as well as courses and events like pottery workshops and navigation training. Also around are several Sustrans routes for cyclists as well cycle hire and cycle tour guide companies; mountain bikers have five mountain bike centres and 14 trails from yellow (level one) to ‘killer black’ (bring plasters). Wheels on tour can cycle the Lôn Las Cymru, the route from Cardiff to Holyhead via Brecon (use route 42).

After all that, you hereby have permission to curl up with a book: buy your tomes at the town of books, Hay-on-Wye, about half an hour from Brecon.
