General

  • Peaceful, simple site on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • A 10-minute drive from Hay-on-Wye; canoe hire five minute away
  • Dog-friendly site within walking distance of two local pubs

Pentwyn Dingle Rural Campsite is a peaceful Powys site on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park and at the foot of the Black Mountains. There’s a properly rural feel on site, with trees all around and a brook running through it, but it’s also in a handy spot a mere 10 minutes’ drive from Hay-on-Wye.

As you may guess, this is a fab location for folk looking to get out into the stunning scenery all around: there are plenty of walking and bike routes to follow locally, and the owners also recommend days of canoeing on the River Wye and horse riding in the Black Mountains. Fancy mixing that up with a bit of town time? Brecon, Crickhowell and Talgarth are all nearby, and of course there’s some excellent pottering to be done in the bookshops of Hay-on-Wye.

Back at base, facilities have been kept very minimal – just a drinking water tap and chemical waste disposal point (you’ll need to bring toilet facilities with you, and you’re kindly asked to take all rubbish away with you).

Keeping things simple means more space to focus on the fresh air and enjoy a bit of birdsong. Being a laidback kind of place, dogs are welcome to join you – they’ll quite possibly enjoy a paddle in the brook, as indeed you might at the end of a long walk. Campfires and barbecues are permitted if you’d like an alfresco meal, or you can stroll over to one of two local pubs within a mile of the site.
