General

  • Enjoy nature
  • Try rustic camping
  • Pick-up fallen branchs for firewood and cook on the campfire

Get closer to nature in Coed Tyle Crwn, a beautiful site set in 70 acres field of mixed woodland. Experience rustic camping and try out your bushcraft skills in the beautiful and secluded woodland clearings, where real campfires are encouraged. The campsite is open all year round and is situated 5 miles from Brecon and 11 miles from Hay-on-Wye.

The site owners have created simple, level clearings in the camping area of the woodland and the grass is kept mowed by the Shetland ponies. The camping field is on a slope but several various sized flat spots allow for level tents. If you want it even wilder or you would like to camp elsewhere, you can take your machete and head into the forest.

Firewood is free to collect from fallen timber. There is a large communal firepit to the side of the clearings for group bookings and a composting toilet for guests to use. The campsite also supply spring water from the woods for washing and cooking (you ought to boil it before drinking though, ideal for tea and coffee). You can buy free range woodland hens eggs on site.

The car park is just 300 metres away from the clearing but the owners have a fleet of wheelbarrows to help move your gear.

    Nice view, clean air.

    Disliked: 

    Very pretty view but for 1 to 2 tents next to the fence by the field where the sheep are. The owner lovely guy but he was absolutely unaware of my arrival the deposit I paid thru pitchup website is useless because I was charged again the full price and no camping spot reserved but I was lucky not to have many campers on site so (just 1 family) so I can choose between literately the all in all about 3-5 camping spaces for my tent which were in about 5m apart from each other. It is in the woods and have enough wood the set up fire. I though it said dog free but the other campers had really annoying little dog at which the owners was shouting at all the time more than she did at her kids actually. Where the car park entry was a bit downhill so if it rains you are going nowhere because it’s all mud and uphill to get out. And then are the ponies which are very cool until night falls and they start wandering between the tents make a lot of noise so be ready for sleepless nights. The ground isn’t very even so it will be a matter of luck no to have the flat spaces taken. There is a WC just one so … It’s close to one of the main roads so you’ll hear fair bit of the traffic. There is about 5 parking spaces only and from the parking to the camp ground is a fairly steep hill.

    The setting although don't recall it being advertised as a wild camp site.
    Alan (owner) was very friendly and welcoming.

    Disliked: 

    Having to wheelbarrow kit to the pitch site was novel but thankfully dry on journeys each way.

    Being kept awake until gone 3am by inconsiderate campers was not appreciated - I did report this to the owner.

Directions


On the A470 between Brecon and Felin-Fach, take the Tredomen turning heading East. From Brecon, it's the middle of the 3 right turns at the top of a long hill. From Felin-Fach it's the next left turn: after the pink house turn left, at the top of the hill.

Drive 880 yards to a crossroads and turn left. Drive a further 580 yards to find a gate on the left with the site signpost. Look for the line of big oak trees going across the field. (Please ignore any sat-nav telling you to carry on further up a steep hill.)

Drive along the stone track across the sheep field to the second gate then park to the left or right. Please make sure you do not let the ponies into the field as you come in.
