General

  • Small family-run site in the village of Llanvetherine
  • 10 minutes' drive from Abergavenny and the Brecon Beacons
  • Footpath leading from the site to Offa's Dyke Path

Hiking boots at the ready, folks – Church Cottage Caravan and Camping is in the little village of Llanvetherine, a prime spot for days spent stomping along the trails of the Brecon Beacons.

This is classic Welsh countryside, with a little brook running through the site and gorgeous green views at every turn. It’ll take you mere minutes to drive to the eastern side of the Beacons from here, although you might equally consider leaving the wheels behind and striding out on foot: a path leads directly out to hook up with the Offa’s Dyke Path and the Three Castles Walk.

In need of a good feed after your efforts? There’s a fab country pub five minutes’ drive away, or you could hit foodies’ fave Abergavenny in around 10 minutes for market stalls, Michelin stars and all sorts in between. There are lots of independent shops to poke around in here too if you fancy a break from the outdoorsy stuff.

Back at base, all is kept quite simple to max out the peaceful vibes – spacious pitches are served by squeaky clean facilities, and there’s a wifi connection to help you plan your next path (or share view pics with the unfortunates back at work). Canine pals who want to get in on the Welsh wanderings are welcome to stay too.

Please note

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

    This site has set the standard for others to follow. It is incredibly clear that this lovely young couple with their young family are making a huge effort to make this a lovely little site and they have achieved it. It’s all the little things, like being so thoughtful and bringing us over a small jug of milk when we had run out. Not to mention a gorgeous jar of homemade jam. The immaculate toilet and shower facilities, together with a little basket of essentials to use, should you have forgotten anything from creams to cotton wool to toothpaste. They really have put a lot of thought into their brand new venture and I sincerely wish them all the best. Shall definitely visit again. Oh, and upon arrival you are loaned a wonderful little A5 folder with info on the site, surrounding area and walks with a map. We had a most wonderful walk to ‘White Castle’ from the site. A must for any visitor. Good luck to lovely Flo, Ed and your happy little family. A more friendly and genuine couple you couldn’t wish to meet!

    What a beautiful and friendly site. Flo greets every car on arrival with a pot of jam and a pack about the area, such a wonderful and warm welcome. The site itself is clean and tidy and has a lovely peaceful secluded feel to it. We were only here for a couple of days but will be sure to return to this wonderful spot!

    Thank you Flo for a lovely stay x

    Some road noise

From the manager...

Wow what really kind words, thank you! We loved having you three to stay and glad you liked our little site so much.
Sorry about the WiFi, it’s the way we have positioned the cable - most pitches get really good signal so we will look into that and make sure the tent area gets a better connection.
Thank you again so much and looking forward to seeing you soon.

    Really enjoyed our recent stay, such a welcoming friendly, chilled couple. As its a small site it was great for us as we could easily keep an eye on our active toddler and he was perfectly safe. It was a scorching weekend, we had a lovely shady spot and the stream was a short strowl for a little cooling paddle. Look forward to our next visit.

Directions


The site is very easy to find, just off the B4521. If you're arriving so Church Cottage is on your left, the entrance is a little tight so it's best to go on just past the gate, turn around and approach from your right.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

It’s safe to say most folks are drawn here by the Brecon Beacons National Park – around its 500 or so square miles are heaps of options for leisurely strolls, mountain scrambles, mountain biking and horse riding (and a mountain railway for those whose legs won’t stretch to such endeavours). Heading in the other direction, Ross-on-Wye is half an hour away for days spent paddling canoes on the River Wye.

The national park’s not the only place for a walk though: the Offa’s Dyke Path is a short trot away, and locals also advise wandering straight from the site to the ruins of Whitecastle, half an hour away on foot, before perhaps continuing on the rest of the Three Castles Walk.

For a break from all the active pursuits, head to the Big Pit National Coal Museum or take the kids to Cantref Adventure Farm. Plus there’s a whole cluster of castles to conquer: Crickhowell, Raglan, Usk, Grosmont and Skenfrith castles are all within a half-hour drive.

Must see

  • Raglan Castle (6.4 miles)
  • Blaenavon Ironworks (8.6 miles)
  • Blaenavon World Heritage Centre & Tourist Information Centre (8.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Skenfrith Castle (6.0 miles)
  • The Kymin (10.5 miles)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
