Willow Acres Campsite: The kitchen

General

  • Peaceful Brecon Beacons pitches with firepits and outdoor kitchen
  • A five-minute walk to Pontypool Golf Club; 15 minutes up Garn Wen
  • Spacious pitches; bring dogs and extra tents for no added charge

Seeking seclusion, scenery and space? Willow Acres Campsite has the lot in good measure – and with lots of extras thrown in for free too.

Located on Lasgarn Farm, in Torfaen countryside and with fine Brecon Beacons and Severn Estuary views, this peaceful site is run by third-generation farmers looking for eco-friendly ways to support the future of their farm, and who care passionately about the environment (as you’ll see from the compost loo and the handmade wooden shower cubicles).

Pitches here have been created from individually cut areas in a lovely wild meadow, with plenty of space for up to six guests on each one. The space is yours to use as you please – there are no extra charges for dogs, cars or extra tents, making these pitches a great option for families or small groups.

Outdoor evenings here are a real highlight – each pitch has a firepit provided, with a stack of firewood for you to use for free as well. Have a go at cooking your dinner over flames, or wander up to the fabulous covered outdoor kitchen to create something more elaborate (it’s fully set up with a gas hob and all the dishes and pots and pans you might require, so there’s no need to bring much with you).

Please bring a torch as this is a dark-skies site, with no light after dark but the chance to spot the Milky Way glittering far above on clear nights. Pontypool (10 minutes’ drive) is just down the road if you fancy a night out at the pubs and restaurants though.

Please note

Guests must bring their own duvets, pillows, sheets and towels when staying in rental accommodation. You will not be allowed to stay if you do not bring these items.

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

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

Bookings must not be for more than 14 consecutive nights.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

Minimum spacing of 5 metres between pitches.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

There is no reception on-site: on arrival please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.

Great new find with quirky kitchen areas to make it easier22/05/2022

  • Liked: 

    What a great place, we booked at the last minute to get away with a new tent. This place is newly set up and fantastic find.
    The kitchen areas, one per pitch, are great - like a large open ended shed with gas hob,pans and utensils, two benches and table all provided.
    First night's fire wood included so we were all set.
    The "Baaa" area was great fun for the kids to play games and the showers are gas heated (wasn't brave enough personally)
    Wheel barrows to cart from the car to the pitches (30 meters away) and a young chap helped with a mower/cart to take our stuff on arrival.
    Fresh eggs, a fridge if needed and option of regular or composting toilets.
    They've tried really hard to make this special, the birdsong was incredible, just a shame we didn't get the weather for a clear night.
    The kids loved feeding the lambs, which is obviously seasonal and the owners were really helpful and went out of their way to find a foot stool so daughter could reach the toilet seat easier.

    Disliked: 

    The road up past the golf course is proper single track - nothing much at the end but really glad we didn't meet anything as it would be tricky to reverse far.
