Bryn Bwch: Site views

General

  • Quiet dog-friendly site by the Four Waterfalls in the Brecon Beacons
  • A 20-minute drive to the base of Pen Y Fan; another waterfall nearby
  • Wood available to buy for firepits; shops and pubs a short drive away

Whether you’re hunting down the Four Waterfalls or taking the scenic drive to the base of Pen Y Fan, your break in the Brecon Beacons National Park will be off to a splendid start from Bryn Bwch. This quiet, dog-friendly site is a great base from which to go waterfall spotting, as it’s next to the Four Waterfalls and the Sgwd Yr Eira Waterfall is within walking distance too… and as you might expect from a site in the national park, there are stunning views from this place.

Dogs and children are very welcome to use the site as their base, so simply set down with all the gang in the large, well-maintained and level-grounded field and park next to your tent. There are four toilets and two showers to go around. For anyone who wants to light up their own firepit in the evening, wood can be purchased from the bungalow when you check in.

When you’re ready to take on South Wales’ biggest mountain, the base of Pen Y Fan is 20 minutes’ drive away. It’s a fair way up to the top, so to pick up any snacks for the climb, you might want to stop by Glynneath first. A 10-minute drive away from the site, this town has shops to pick up supplies and pubs to pause by if you wish. When you're looking for a pub slightly closer by, there's also one five minutes' drive away from the site.

Clean facilities, friendly staff & overall really nice campsite20/09/2022

  • Liked: 

    The site is in walking distance to the 4 waterfalls & many other lovely little walks. As well as being in walking distance of a local pub which had outstanding food. The site is well kept & the owners were very nice. In the evenings the owners went around selling wood for campers fires. It had a overall very chilled vibe to the site

    Disliked: 

    The site is on a slight slope so on the first night we slept downhill however come the second night we were able to move due to people leaving the campsite. The site also only had 2 toilets & 1 shower each for females & males, which we thought would be a negative however they were rarely busy so there was never a wait for showers & the toilet.

  • Liked: 

    Gorgeous backdrop with simple basic supplies. Campsite was clean, sheltered mini outdoor kitchen area and simple toilet/shower block. It was the right level of feeling completely out in the open and had the facilities we needed.

    Disliked: 

    To have the path down to the shower block in the field gravelled so that it isn't slippery when its wet

Local attractions

Break into the Brecon Beacons however you please… taste the spoils of the copper-pot stills on a tour around Penderyn Distillery Visitor Centre (15 minutes' drive) perhaps? Grab a co-adventurer and strap yourselves in for a one or two-person zipwire ride from the tower of a former Colliery coal mining site at Zip World Tower (20 minutes)? Or board the Brecon Mountain Railway (40 minutes) and make your way into the mountains on the original mountain line?

Mountain biking might make it onto your itinerary in these parts, as there are a couple of options within driving distance of the site. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a newbie or a pro at BikePark Wales (35 minutes), as there are lots of different forest trails. Dare Valley Country Park and Gravity Family Bike Park (35 minutes) is another good option for families, especially those who are new to the game.

At this site, you’ll only be a short drive from the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (25 minutes). Here, kids are likely to love the lifesized dinosaurs and the caverns. Plus, there are lots of things to learn about the history of the dinosaurs and other cool parts of the past in the museum and Iron Age farm.

Must see

  • Penderyn Distillery Visitor Centre (2.8 miles)
  • National Showcaves of Wales (5.5 miles)
  • Brecon Mountain Railway (8.8 miles)
