Grawen is situated at the foot of the southern ridges of the Brecon Beacons' highest hills and some of the most appealing walking country in the land, a fantastic location close to historic towns, Brecon Beacons and the Waterfall country.
We are a family run, 3* camping park and want to make your stay an enjoyable one. Our site is perfect for families, couples, walkers and cyclists who either want to relax, enjoy or discover the beautiful views of the countryside.
We are also pleased to accommodate students on their expeditions for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
There are lots of things to do in our area where you can use the park as a base. Within a few minutes walk from the site is a beautiful reservoir which is perfect for an evening stroll.
Just 1.5 miles south of the site is our local village Cefn Coed, where you will be able to find convenience stores, pubs, takeaways and much more.
Pre-booking is not always necessary but may be advisable at peak times especially if wanting to book with an electric hook up, particularly Bank Holidays.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
