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.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

    Beautiful location and pod lovely and clean! Morning visits from ducklings, peace and quiet toilet and shower facilities the best I've seen on a campsite and although only 2 shower/toilets and 1 separate toilet we never had to wait but it was quiet during our stay! Great location for visiting castle 10 mins drive and waterfalls 49 mins away but worth the drive x

    Disliked: 

    Possibility of long shower toilet wait during busy times

From the manager...

Thank you for your comments and we have introduced our New 5* shower and toilet block and an extra shower and toilet this year

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.
