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?

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.
