General

  • Quiet site for guests over 25s
  • Camp kitchen with microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge and hot water
  • Pet-friendly site with two free hot showers and two toilets

Cuckoo Camping is a small adults-only site offering peace and quiet, an ideal base for a relaxing holiday away from screaming children and noisy neighbours. To ensure a peaceful atmosphere the campsite has a strict no-noise policy and all cars must be park in the designated area away from the field. This means, no radios, no music and no doors and boots slamming. It exclusively welcomes guests over the age of 25 along with their lovely pets.

The tent field is spacious and each pitch is supplied with a firepit. Wood packs can be purchased on site, however you are also welcome to bring your own wood and kindling. The owners sell a limited supply of provisions for your convenience.

There are two free hot showers and two toilets as well as a shared communal kitchen equipped with a microwave, a fridge and freezer, a kettle and basic cutlery and crockery.

The campsite is minutes away from the small village of Gwynfe.

    Over-25s and max four people per group is a great idea and makes for a peaceful stay amongst the wonderful natural surroundings. I think the owners are onto a winner with this approach.

    Beautiful location overlooking the Black Mountain.

    Very good facilities including covered kitchen area if the weather turns bad.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing!

From the manager...

    Disliked: 

    some of the pitches are not very flat and could be a little annoying if you got stuck with one of them. 80% of them are ok however.

Well run camp site in beautiful surroundings 26/08/2016

    Loved the views of the Black Mountains from the tent and the proximity to oodles of walks. The campsite pitches are lovely and large so they can fit a large tent or a small tent. If you want a camp fire each plot has a contained facility too. The kitchen and wash blocks are not five star in appearance but they are five star in functionality. I would also suggest that the facilities available go beyond what most campsites of this size would generally offer. The owners are lovely and friendly and dogs are more than welcome.

    Disliked: 

    The only downside was that the wifi would not connect with a macbook in the kitchen / diner. One had to go nearer the house. It would connect with many other devices from the kitchen, just not the mac.

From the manager...

Thank you Victoria, it was lovely meeting you and your two dogs .

Peaceful site with homely touches and friendly helpful hosts 02/08/2016

    We had a fantastic time at Cuckoo Camping and really wished we could have stayed longer. Designed for adults only (pets allowed), it's a peaceful and secluded spot with large pitches, great views and the gentle sound of the river running below.

    The site is a real delight, with extra touches to make you feel at home, like the camp kitchen, (very) hot showers, an outdoor under cover picnic spot and individual fire pits. Pete even supplied us with wood and matches.

    Pete and Roz couldn't be more helpful hosts. The place is newly opened this Summer and we'd recommend it highly. We'll be back soon for sure!

    Disliked: 

    Beware - not signposted - we had to telephone for directions when our satnav let us down

From the manager...

Hi, you were our first campers and we really hope that all future campers coming to stay are as pleasant as you . The showers are working better now although we are having the plumber altering the water pressure to hopefully give more control on the temperature so our future campers will not want to get out of the shower . Thank you for choosing Cuckoo Camping .

Local attractions

Llanddeusant Red Kite Feeding Station was opened in the summer of 2002 by a local partnership with support from the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Welsh Red Kite Trust and various other notable wildlife organisations and individuals. The centre is designed to fit naturally into the landscape and to provide bird lovers the ideal opportunity to witness red kites, buzzards and other birds feeding. Visitors may sit in the specially built hide only feet away from diving birds and observe them competing naturally for the meat provided by the feeding centre at regular times throughout the year.

Explore the villages around the Brecon Beacons National Park including Llangadog, Capel Gwynfe, Bethlehem, Trap, Myddfai and Llanddeusant. Llangadog is a perfect place to stop off for lunch and enjoy the beautiful Towy River and views towards the Black Mountain. Bethlehem, set on the hillside above the Towy flood plain, is a popular route for cyclists and is overlooked by Garn Goch, an impressive Iron Age hill fort which commands fantastic views of the river. Myddfai instead, has lanes running through steep wooded valleys giving glimpses of the grandeur of Mynydd Myddfai and the Black Mountain. In Trap, guests can visit the impressive remains of Carreg Cennen Castle, voted the most romantic ruin in Wales. Enjoy the panoramic views and the spooky vaulted passageway to an underground cave.
