  • Friendly site on a farm in the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Just over a mile's walk to pubs in Talybont-on-Usk
  • Meet the farm animals on site; bike hire available
Bed down in the Brecon Beacons National Park – and have yourself a slice of proper Powys farm life while you’re at it too. Coity Bach is a welcoming and friendly rural site on a farm just over a mile from the pretty little village of Talybont-on-Usk. Budding farmhands can get stuck into various tasks on site, helping out with the goats and horses, while those in search of more relaxing times can simply settle down in a serene setting for idle hours on site. Either way, it’s worth staying awake until after dark if you can: there’s some great stargazing to be done here, and barbecues and campfires are both allowed to keep you warm while you do just that. Off site, this is a popular place for hill walking, and town wanders are easily accessible at nearby Abergavenny, Hay-on-Wye and Crickhowell. It's excellent terrain for cycling too: hire a bike on site or have your own spruced up at the cycle shop in the village. As for sprucing yourself up too, communal amenities on site include showers, toilets, a laundry area and a drying room; there are also charging and recycling facilities, and local produce for sale. If you are indeed planning a barbecue or picnic (or just need snacks) the nearest big town for supplies is Brecon, 15 minutes’ drive away. To eat out, four pubs are within a mile and a half at Talybont-on-Usk.

Non-electric grass tent pitch (mountain view)

Liked: Great Views, amazing hospitality, felt so welcome on the farm. Allowed to pitch where we liked, left to our own devices if we wanted but also offered loads of great advice on the area. Fire Pit and food from the farm- what more could you ask for! I would definitely recommend staying here. The facilities were basic but always clean, saw them being cleaned daily just after busy periods as well so no issues here! Also a compost loo near the top field if you were up the hill which was very handy! Walk in to town was fine - the walk back up the hill was a little more challenging but you can normally park in the village if you want to drive - also one of the pubs had a car park. Village shop with essentials and local breakfast sausage's etc. I understand the 'at your own risk' entering the camping fields in a car but my Hyundai i10 Automatic managed it in a low gear setting- slow and steady wins the race. This was in drier conditions though. You can also take a walk straight off the campsite on to the hills behind, this was so quiet didn't see a soul which was lush! Just be prepared that not all the paths are maintained fully so may be a little wild. All in all - me and my boyfriend loved staying at Coity Bach Farm and will definitely be returning!

Non-electric grass tent pitch (mountain view)

Liked: Well what can I say! Ceri & Kyle was amazing to us from start to finish! Unfortunately for us we had taken a tent that wasn’t waterproof and woke up floating in the morning😂. Ceri and Kyle was both incredible and did everything possible to help us with the flood in our tent. Unfortunately we had to end our stay short after just one night due to all of our clothing being soaked however Within minutes of texting Ceri Kyle was at the tent helping us. They loaned us an air bed and helped us with our tent. Ceri had kindly offered us alternative accommodation however our party was too big but this was a huge act of kindness from them both. The field we pitched in was lovely and the view was even better. We didn’t stay long enough to use all the facilities due to the bad weather but this was no fault of the owners. These guys are probably the kindest and most genuine people we have ever met and nothing was too much of an ask from them! Beautiful walks local to the farm. Great views and Ceri offers breakfast, hog roast and even pizzas. We will certainly be booking back here but with a waterproof tent! Keep up the good work guys your both amazing and so welcoming! We can’t wait to see you in the future!

Disliked: Nothing.

Ty Bach Twt 1 bedroom lodge

Liked: Friendly staff, great location, cottage itself was okay but extremely overpriced

Disliked: The cottage itself was fine, albeit a bit dusty, the double bed is knackered and rattles like hell but the kitchen and bathroom were clean and functioning and overall was lovely. Unfortunately it was the site that let us down, it's a working farm, and we are working farmers and educated in animals/farm life. The farm was a mess, there is junk everywhere and the animals are free roaming, not a problem for me with well trained dogs but I'd fear for others it would be an issue. As a dog trainer and lover at first I was thrilled to see the shar peis, Newfoundland and chowchow running free, they are friendly. Untill they poo'd outside our door, urinated all over our outdoor furniture/planters and took a dump outside the hot tub and by the car daily. I took three dogs and easily cleaned up after them! I think with a little love this place could be amazing, but right now it's a mess. We left promptly before departure time when the entire male Shar pei urinated all over our bags which was next to our car for packing. The view from our 'patio' was of the dirty toilet for campers, which the door wouldn't shut, and if you didn't look at the toilet you could smell all the bins which are next to your furniture! We won't be back, if it was my farm I'd shut it down for a year and sort it out. It has great potential!

Local attractions

Being in the Brecon Beacons, this is naturally excellent hillwalking territory – you can head straight out onto paths directly from the farm, or ask your hosts for tips on local routes including the Taff Trail, Henry Vaughan walk and Usk Valley Walk. If you’re trying to tick off a mountain or two, make a beeline for Pen y Fan (20 minutes’ drive) or the Sugar Loaf (35 minutes) For a bigger variety of alfresco activities, head to Llangorse Lake (20 minutes) for rock climbing, watersports and horse riding outings. Closer by, Cantref Adventure Farm (15 minutes) has riding lessons and horseback treks, plus all sorts of family antics including crazy golf, tractor rides and Europe’s longest sledge ride (oh, and pig racing…) The natural scenery around here is spectacular, of course – and the towns are pretty too. Crickhowell (20 minutes), Abergavenny (half an hour) and bookshop-filled Hay-on-Wye (35 minutes) are all worth a wander.
