General

  • Small family-run farm in the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Miles of hill, countryside and mountain walks all around
  • Just outside the village of Felindre

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 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.

    Second time at Newcourt, took more of us his time and the welcome was fantastic as we were remembered. Love the site and it's fantastic views, simple but clean and compact, well laid out and very efficient. Great walks from the campsite as well as things to do nearby.

    - Exhilarating, peaceful, downhill, short bike ride into Hay-on-Wye
    - Fabulous management team on site. Could not have been more helpful.
    - Incredible views.
    - Plenty of nice pitches.

    Disliked: 

    - Tortuous, lung-burst, uphill struggle to get back from Hay-on-Wye on a bike!
    - Like several other people have commented, on a busy bank holiday weekend there isn't nearly enough shower/wash room/toilet facilities on the site

    Pitch could have been a bit flatter. There were some nice flat pitches but we had our dog and the field was on a slight slope.

Go at a quiet time and enjoy the views. 02/06/2017

  • Liked: 

    The location is lovely and quiet with impressive views and easy access to Hay on Wye and Brecon. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The facilities are excellent for dog owners with a large dog walking field. The rules are relaxed about pitching location and arrival / departure times. There is a good communal cooking area for large groups if you need that kind of facility. Cost effective!

    Disliked: 

    You'll see the same comments on other reviews. The site is on a hill so there are only a hand full of flat pitches, the rest are on quite a slope. The washing, toilet and shower facilities are very limited although they were quite clean considering we were there during a very busy bank holiday. Temporary toilets were also provided as it was busy but I think I'd rather use the dog walking field.....

Local attractions

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.

Must see

  • Blaenavon Ironworks (17.5 miles)
  • Brecon Mountain Railway (17.6 miles)
  • Big Pit: National Coal Museum (17.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Cwmmau Farmhouse (10.0 miles)
  • The Weir (15.5 miles)

Cycle routes
