General

  • Spectacular site on a private estate with 9-hole golf course
  • A 10-minute drive to Crickhowell and 35 minutes to Hay-on-Wye
  • Five-mile stretch of the River Usk for salmon and trout fishing

A peaceful Powys stay, with stunning surroundings and stacks of space? Make your way to Glanusk Caravan Park, where relaxing stays can be had in the historic grounds of Glanusk Estate, one of Wales’ largest privately owned estates. It's also rather gorgeous, with a fine collection of features like walled gardens and Celtic standing stones to wander around, and listed buildings including the splendid turreted Tower Bridge over the River Usk.

And it’s not just the views right there on site that are pretty special – the estate is surrounded by the epic scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park, and has spectacular views up to the Black Mountains too. Country pursuits like cycling, pony trekking and canoeing can all be had nearby, and there’s easy access to these and other outings via the nearby A40 and B4558.

Spending time on site is an equally fine prospect however – and that goes for dogs too, who are most welcome to join you here. Fishing for trout and salmon is available on the five-mile private stretch of the River Usk, and there's a 9-hole course on site for the golfers. Ask on site about local ambles too – two of the team are Brecon Beacons Ambassadors and have lots more suggestions up their sleeves.

For a short stroll, head towards the award-winning high street in the town of Crickhowell (40 minutes away on foot) to source provisions from the butcher's shop, bakery and restaurants or browse boutiques for antiques, clothes, gifts and books. Too far? Stay on site and order a luxury hamper packed with locally produced goodies – let the team here know in advance and they'll sort out delivery to your pitch or a choice picnic spot on the riverbank.

Back at the park, an amenity building built in 2019 has disabled facilities, showers, underfloor heating, toiletries, towels and hairdryers; other amenities include waste disposal areas, dog and bike-washing points, and wifi.

Please note

Local attractions

Glanusk Caravan Park is within an International Dark Sky Reserve, the first International Dark Sky Reserve in Wales, so plan a bit of time to turn your eyes skywards after dusk – on a clear night you're bound to be treated to quite the display.

For a taste of local history, take a trip to Blaenavon (25 minutes' drive), a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000 that's home to the Big Pit National Coal Museum, Blaenavon Ironworks, the World Heritage Centre and Blaenavon Heritage Railway. In Pantyscallog (half an hour), the Brecon Mountain Railway tells another historic story as it makes its way along the full length of Pontsticill Reservoir.

For pubs, cafés and a small town with an award-winning high street, Crickhowell is within walking or cycling distance and hosts a walking festival, literary festival and numerous other events throughout the year. For more urban exploring, it's eight miles to Abergavenny, 12 miles to Brecon, 14 miles to Talgarth and 20 miles to Hay-on-Wye.
