Rural, you say? Why yes indeed – it’s a fitting term indeed for Pentwyn Dingle Rural Campsite, 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 middle-of-the-countryside feel here, with trees all around and a brook running through the site, 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 check out the stunning scenery nearby: 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 probably 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.

The walking possibilities around here are many and varied, ranging from gentle circular walks that stop at the pub for all-important rehydration to uphill clambers at Pen y Fan – the highest peak in south Wales is about a 40-minute drive from the site.
If you fancy a different way to get out and about, check out the local canoe hire place and the activity centre that’s got options for caving, rafting, paddleboarding and other outdoor antics – both places are about five minutes’ drive away. Llangorse Lake (20 minutes’ drive) is another fine pick for a day out whether you’re after walks or watersports.
Time for something less energetic? Perhaps head to Hay-on-Wye (10 minutes) to see the castle and poke your nose into all the bookshops, or make a break for Brecon (20 minutes) for a march around the regimental museum. Also within a half-hour drive are pretty Crickhowell and the flower-flanked pathways of Brobury House Gardens.
