Why not enter some details and get an accurate price?
Hay you! Up for a wander in the Brecon Beacons? Fancy hoofing it around Hay Forest, going off-a to Offa’s Dyke, traversing the Taff Trail – and staying with friendly folk on a farm with views and sunsets that will make your eyes water? Walk this way…
Newcourt Farm Campsite is the place to peel off your socks pitchside once you’re on your last legs: this small family-run farm in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Brecon Beacons National Park is used by wise wayfarers as a base for hiking the hills, mountains and countryside around it.
(Gliding, horse-riding, fishing, golf and watersports are also available nearby; if you’re too puffed out to even think about any of that, this is a stellar spot for stargazing too.)
The grass pitches at Newcourt Farm take tents, tourers and motorhomes, and the farm has clean showers, loos and a washing up area. Supervised school trips and groups such as Duke of Edinburgh Award seekers are welcome, and the site is dog-friendly.
For fuel, Newcourt Farm Campsite is just outside the village of Felindre, to pick up pub grub at the dog and child-friendly Three Horseshoes pub.
Your boots will be made for walking: this corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park has footpaths and trails all around to warm you up before tackling the hill walks and mountains, and all in a spectacular part of Wales with diverse scenery including valleys, waterfalls, caves and open countryside.
There are a couple of walks direct from Newcourt and two long-distance trails cross through the farm: the Offa’s Dyke Path on the eastern border of the national park and the Taff Trail running south from Brecon. The Brecon Beacons Park Society has a full programme of guided walks in the park from moderate to strenuous, and there are many routes and maps available from the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority (or just ask Newcourt Farm owner David to point you in the right direction).
The national park’s also where you can get your fill of climbing, birdwatching, caving, canoeing, sailing and other outdoor options; there’s a visitor centre six miles from Brecon with all the info you might need as well as courses and events like pottery workshops and navigation training. The park also has several Sustrans routes for cyclists as well cycle hire and cycle tour guide companies; mountain bikers have five mountain bike centres and 14 trails from yellow (level one) to ‘killer black’ (bring plasters). Wheels on tour can cycle the Lôn Las Cymru, the route from Cardiff to Holyhead via Brecon (use route 42).
Ten minutes’ drive from Newcourt Farm Campsite will take you to the Black Mountains for even more stellar views, paragliding, mountain-boarding, hang-gliding and horse-riding; another long-distance walk, the 218-mile Marches Way, passes through the area. Or take to the water instead for boat and canoe trips on the Wye or the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal.
After all that, we hereby give you permission to curl up with a book: buy your tomes at the town of books, Hay-on-Wye, about half an hour from Brecon. Hungry after reading? Have some of the lovely local lamb or pick up some organic farm veg around the area.
