The Dragons Back (formerly The Castle Inn), is a pub with B&B rooms Bunkhouses & Campsite. We are located in a stunning valley, over 1000ft above sea level in the heart of The Black Mountains, in The Brecon Beacons National Park.

We’ve kept our campsite purposely low key. We don’t have a children’s playground, we don’t have a laundry, we don’t have room for massive tents (over 15 ft) or caravans, and we don’t have a shop.

What do we have? Two clean loos, 1 good free shower,( the shower is hot only when the campsite is busy or the bunkhouse is occupied), great views, our pub next door (with good food, real ales and a warm welcome), and direct access to the Black Mountains – what more could you want?

Depart: (2 nights)
