Pitches are all in the orchard with plenty of space to find your own privacy or to make camp with friends. There is no vehicular access to the orchard making this a relaxing space for families. As an old orchard there is plenty of wildlife so look out for our frogs, newts and moles (sometmes they can make it a little uneven!).
Log circle and camp fire - great for socialising in the evenings and toasting marshmallows.
The toilets/showers, a washing-up area with some storage cupboards (not a self-catering kitchen), recycling facilities, potable water, drying room & washing machine are located within the hostel.
A cafe (weekends only), restaurant and bar (each evening) are available for snacks, meals, chocolate and hot and cold drinks.
The car park and cycle shed are easily accessible from both the hostel and the orchard.

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.

Take the lane from Talybont-on-Usk towards the reservior (opposite the post office). This will take you over the canal. Follow the lane for about 1.5 miles, through the village of Aber and on past the turn off for the water works, about 300m past this you reach the reservoir and the dam wall. Turn left here and go along the top of the dam wall - we are the first turning on the left on the far side (over the cattle grid), the lane from this point is single-track and uneven for the first 200 metres then descends into our car park.
From either Brecon or Abergavenny take the X43 and alight in Talybont. You can then either walk by the lane (directions above) or take the Taff Trail (foot path and cycle/MTB trail) from behind the White Hart Inn. Both routes take about 40 mins and are about two miles. Buses run two-hourly Monday - Saturday but stop at around 5pm. From May to September the Beacons Bus runs on Sundays and on bank holidays.
Our closest train station is Abergavenny (20 miles). You can continue your journey to us by bus from here.
National Express to Brecon then to Talybont by bus.
