We’re a small family-run campsite just two miles from Trecastle and 20 minutes west of Brecon in the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. Our lovely old farmhouse is set in 5 acres. To call it 'beautiful' is an understatement – but we would say that, we live here!
Chickens, owls, kingfishers, red kites, bats, foxes, and otters. Just a few of the creatures we share our land with. As such, we do all we can to keep it looking nice for them and for you.
Ynysfaen is all about peace and tranquillity – a basecamp to explore and enjoy mother nature doing what she does best. We’re not into late nights so we have a ‘no noise policy’ after 10.30pm. On the other hand, we love early mornings – and waking up to the sounds of the babbling River Usk, the dawn chorus, and the gentle clucking of chickens. If you share this sentiment, then you should really enjoy Ynysfaen.
A little different…
We like to think we’re a little different from most other campsites in the area. Here’s why…
Camping, not caravanning – tents and trailer tents are welcome, but sorry, no motorhomes or caravans,
Canvas, not cars – no vehicles allowed on the camping field. There are wheelbarrows to cart stuff to your pitch, and if you need a hand, just holler!
Quality, not quantity – we love sardines, but only on toast. So you’ll have plenty of room to pitch your tent.
Seclusion, not isolation – Ynysfaen feels far from the madding crowd, but there’s plenty of civilisation nearby, too.
Heat, without hassle – for £5, we provide firebaskets, logs and kindling for those chilly evenings.
Simplicity, not luxury – we have a modern shower and toilet block, and a covered washing up area, with hot and cold water but no electricity hook-up.
Basics, not banquets – there’s no shop, but you can buy free range eggs laid by our own chickens and seasonal homegrown fruit and veg.
As we are a fairly small site, we prefer you to book, you can do this via email or through UK Campsite. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org

Find nearby sites with availability…
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.

We are 20 mins via car West of Brecon town, on the A40 towards Carmarthenshire.
When driving West, through Trecastle, take the second left at the Antiques Centre up the hill. Keep going along this country road for 1.9 miles and you will reach our site on the left hand site. If you get to the small bridge, you have gone 100 yards too far - turn around and you will see our site.
Take on the great outdoors – or just let it wash over you.
Whatever you’re into, there’s lots to get up to – whether you’re the adventurous type or just want to chill out in the bosom of mother nature. There’s fishing on the Usk Reservoir, 5 minutes’ drive up the valley. There’s mile upon mile of spectacular walking with breathtaking views of the Beacons and Black Mountains. There’s road cycling and mountain biking (we can arrange drop-offs and pick-ups), as well as pony trekking, mountain boarding, canoeing and canyoning. And for the gentler of mind and body, there are some great local attractions like Dan yr Ogof Show Caves and Big Pit, Blaenavon. We’re really just scratching the surface here, so if you’re stuck for inspiration, just ask, we’ve got lots of ideas.
