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 10 minutes' drive away and the local pub is within walking distance.

    Wish I'd brought a fishing rod & stayed longer than just overnight :-)

    Didn't realise there was an area to let the dog off-leash away from water foul until we were just leaving.

    The communal Washroom/Toilet facilities were goo, with a washing-up area & microwave.

    Little on site store useful too.

    Well kept site in beautiful surroundings most pods/ pitches around the lake with loads of ducks and geese wandering around... ( Pod was immaculate, facilities were super clean ..honesty shop had everything you need. Seems like you are on the middle of nowhere but various food outlets deliver at minimal charge which is great if going for one night and don't want to take all camping gear with you. Lovely fairy lights everywhere at dusk very pretty...And dogs allowed 🐶😊...Also very good value for money.

    Disliked: 

    No wifi even tho says it's available ( not in our location anyway) ...and maybe a kids play area would have been handy if we had been staying longer especially if only one child so can meet other kids on site 👍

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 righthand 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 site.

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.
