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.

    Owner and family were very friendly and had time for everyone Each day they would check with you that everything was O.K.

    We had a problem with our own equipment that we brought with us and they couldn't have done more to help to fix it.

    The site is great, particularly if you like fishing, or just watching others fish in the sites own lake.
    Toilets and showers were always very clean and well stocked with things you might have forgotten.

    Check the PODs out to stay in and or buy, they are worth considering.

    Everything from the relaxed friendly welcome. Nice to choose your own pitch on arrival. toilet and wash facilities are spotless. Pitching close to the lake is a lovely setting even if you don't fish. Walk straight out of the site up into the hills. The fact there are not that many pitches gives it more of a family feel.

Tranquil wonderful site with amazing walks nearby and good fishing 03/08/2017

    My Husband and I and our 4 year old son stayed in the Grande Max Pod recently with the added luxury of having our own Hot Tub. I will start by saying the site itself is wonderful. If your looking for tranquility, in beautiful surroundings and a slower pace of life this is for you. We stayed for 2 days and apart from popping out to tesco (3 miles away) to get sunscreen and milk we didnt leave our lovely Pod.
    The Hot Tub was out of this world, the lovely owner made sure the logs were in the burner when we arrived to get the water lovely and warm for us and there was more than enough logs left for us to put on ourselves. My son loved pressing the bubble button.
    In the evenings we had the free use of a fire pit with plenty of logs to have a nice barbeque then toasted marshmallows afterwards with my son thoroughly enjoyed.
    The fishing was good, my son had a little go and managed to catch a small fish by himself.
    The Pod itself was more like a log cabin. Very comfortable double bed with (I think) a memory foam mattress and a pull out sofa bed for our son. Theres a small kitchen with everything you need, couple of hobs, microwave, kettle, fridge with freezer compartment and all your utensils that you would need. We even had tea, coffee, shower gel, soap and fluffy towels left ready for us.
    The owners couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was comfortable. Very friendly and attentive.
    All in all the holiday was so relaxing and enjoyable we will definitely be going back there in the future.

    Disliked: 

    Absolutly nothing. We all enjoyed the holiday so much we wouldnt want to change a thing. If we had to suggest anything maybe a small play area for little ones would be beneficial.

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.
