Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer: On the site

General

  • Adventure-focused stays at an activity centre in the Brecon Beacons
  • Off the Pontsticill reservoir within 15 mins’ drive of Merthyr Tydfil
  • Gorge walking, paddleboarding, climbing and caving organised from site

It’s all go go go at Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer, in the south of the Brecon Beacons National Park with an activity centre specialising in getting folk out into the open air... adventures ranging from gorge walking, paddleboarding and climbing to caving, kayaking and bushcraft in this spot squished among the Welsh hills.

Being in the Beacons, the site’s also rather pretty: it sits off the Pontsticill reservoir in one of Wales’ most naturally lush areas. That’s not to say it’s in the middle of nowhere however – a couple of pubs are about a five-minute drive away, with a couple more five minutes further. The nearest shop is less than 10 minutes and it's also 20 in the car to the former industrial town of Merthyr Tydfil for restaurants, bowling and a cinema.

If you’d rather stick to soaking up the scenery, rent bikes from the site and set off on the trails of BikePark Wales at the Gethin Woodland Centre a 25-minute drive away or head off to hike one of Wales' most well-known peaks, Pen y Fan, under an hour by foot. (You can also practise archery and build rafts at this park, for restful times afterwards.)

If you’d rather sit and see the sights, the Brecon Mountain Railway starts 10 minutes’ drive away on its run north from Pantalong along the whole of the Pontsticill reservoir, then on to the Pentwyn reservoir before stopping in Torpantau... and with excellent views the whole way.

    Gorgeous campsite attached to this friendly activity centre. The stream side pitch was beautiful and tranquil, perfect for a little escape. Great facilities, hot showers and always clean, worth the little walk up hill to reach! The staff were super helpful and got us signed up to paddle boarding, which was such a great experience.

    The location was stunning.

    Disliked: 

    The showers where functional, but not particularly clean and quite a way from the camping field. Lots of adolescents around, but they were thankfully well behaved. It was also a bit of a haven for midges.

Local attractions

Keen on investigating south Wales' industrial heritage? Set off to Cyfarthfa Castle (20 minutes’ drive) for a mansion belonging to the Crawshays, the family who owned the old Cyfarthfa Ironworks, or head further (45 minutes) to the aristocratic Bute clan's Castell Coch, a fairytale building designed by architect William Burgess.

Visitors to the area can also turn back time to the 1600s at the National Trust’s Tredegar House (50 minutes) while meandering around a Charles II-era mansion and gardens. Treat yourself to a tipple afterwards as a reward for being so cultural at the Penderyn Distillery Visitor Centre, where tastings of the famed Welsh whisky as well as chocolate-making classes can be had 25 minutes’ drive from the park.

If the wild’s where you want to be, Horseshoe Falls in the beacons is 40 minutes’ drive for walks beside water, and the popular market towns of Crickhowell and Brecon are the same distance if you’d rather ply pretty high streets.

For fab scenery a little further on, Sirhowy Valley Country Park is 50 minutes away.

Must see

  • Brecon Mountain Railway (2.7 kilometers)
  • Penderyn Distillery Visitor Centre (12.4 kilometers)
