Bryn Bwch: Site views (photo added by manager on 09/08/2022)

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 with a stay at 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 field (which has some level sections and some with slight gradients or inclines) and park next to your tent. On the facilities front, 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.

Ready to take on South Wales’ biggest mountain? The car park for routes up 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 in Glynneath first. A 10-minute drive away from the site, this town has shops for picking up supplies along with pubs to reward your climbing efforts. When you're looking for a pub slightly closer by, there's also one five minutes' drive away from the site.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Bookings must not be for more than 7 consecutive nights.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Minimum spacing of 5 metres between pitches.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

    The quiet location was perfect for our first trip away with our dog. Facilities were fine.

    Disliked: 

    During the summer months if the camp is busier it may be harder only having 2 toilets and 1 shower.

    Very open, clean and tidy toilets/showers, pitch wherever you like and good views. Plenty of space to have your own camp fire as well. Perfect site if you’re hiking the local trails and within walking distance of the 4 waterfalls walk.

Hot, clean shower in the field. Short drive or walk …18/09/2023

    Hot, clean shower in the field. Short drive or walk to the waterfalls walks.

    Disliked: 

    2 of the Showers were broken. The field was smaller than I'd imagined, and mostly on a slope so there are very few completely flat pitches. Fairly pricey.

Local attractions

Break into the Brecon Beacons however you please… taste the whisky from the copper-pot stills on a tour of 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.
