General

  • Peaceful and friendly site in the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Fishing lake carefully developed by the family team
  • Spotless amenities

Hiking, biking or hill walking in the Brecon Beacons National Park, then coming back to cook up dinner over the flames of a campfire? Or how about angling on site, at a fishing lake edged by trees and plants and dwelt on by ducks and geese? If this sounds Brecon brilliant, give Bryncoch Farm a look in next time you're around Carmarthenshire parts.

Set secludedly among mountains in a quiet spot with spectacular views, Bryncoch is a peaceful and popular place with a friendly vibe and excellent amenities: 'spotless', 'immaculate' and excellent' are among the accolades heaped on the amenities here by chuffed former guests – and you'll be well chuffed too with all the provided little extras.

The pace is slow here for those who want to sink into a well-earned break; for the more energetic, outdoor activities are all around and watersports at south Welsh beaches within 30 minutes' drive.

Whichever option you pick, take some peaceful time at the centrally set lake, carefully managed over the years (the family team at Bryncoch has been developing the farm since 1995) to its tidy and scenic setting these days. It's filled with a good variety of species including carp for anglers to land; just bring your own fishing kit.

Ammanford, the farm's local settlement and a Fairtrade Town, is ten minutes away and the local pub is within walking distance.

    We upgraded to the family pod when we arrived which was lovely and cosy. Shower pod was lovely, really clean and plenty of hot water.

    Disliked: 

    The pod we were booked into was very dark and tucked away but the upgraded pod was perfect.

    That you could pitch anywhere, the way you could order wood from your collapsible chair to be delivered to said chair by the friendly and helpful owner, with a complimentary upcycled fire pit. Love it! Very good facilities in the corner of the field and a super fishing lake (which we didn't use but admired daily).

Very nice 30/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Helen M. Confirmed

    Stayed here for 2 nights over the bank holiday. It's a lovely site. The ducks and geese were amazing. Its lovely and quiet (apart from the people using the hot tub which were very noisy) but this isn't a fault of the site.
    We didn't visit the pub as it never looked open, so would suggest not relying on this.
    Our log pod was well cleaned and everything was in working order.
    We chose not to cook as we weren't confident using the barberque around a young child, and instead ordered takeaways which were very prompt and delivered to the site no problem.
    The showers and toilets were kept as clean as possible, shame that there were some filthy people there who liked to leave a mess whenever they used them. The owners did try their best to keep them clean though, they work very hard.
    The lighting is good at night so you can find your way safely.
    We didn't actually get to meet the owners apart from when we paid which was a shame as everyone says how nice they are, it could be that we were out when they came around.

    Disliked: 

    There were no major issues, however I always like to give constructive feedback. I would suggest having another toilet installed as there was a wait on the mornings. This was probably due to it being so busy though, so maybe under normal circumstances it would not be needed.
    Paper towels would be better in the toilets as towels and tea towels are not hygienic, however I realise this may cause further problems if people dispose of them in the toilets so unsure of a way around this really unless biodegradable ones could be used.
    Also a small shop would be nice, save people having to drive off the site to get basics.

    Amazing camp site, Clean and Friendly.
    Friendly owner, drove around checking we had everything we needed.
    Toilet, shower area and washing facility were cleaned regular.

    Disliked: 

    There was only 1 toilet and shower but the owner did mention extending this.
    Also a little on site shop would be a good idea.

Directions


From the A483 Llandeilo, follow the A483 until you get to Derwydd and turn left (brown sign to Carreg Cennen Castle), then straight and follow the bendy road (do not turn off to the castle signs). Continue past the church on the right-hand bend and after two-thirds of a mile you will see a sign for Bryncoch Farm and South Wales Camping (concrete road). Turn left up into the drive and left onto the campsite.

From services on the M4, follow the Ammanford signs five miles to Ammanford, through the first set of lights. Bear right at the second set of lights and take the third turning left just after the speed camera, then continue for about 3 miles. You will pass the Square and Compasses pub on the right. Follow the road bearing left around the bend for 500m and you will find our concrete drive and signs on the right.
