General

  • Dog-friendly wild camping site in oak woods on a working sheep farm
  • A 25-minute drive to Elan Valley and the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • 20 minutes’ walk to Builth Wells’ pubs, shops, cafés and restaurants

Hands up if you’re after a wild break in Wales – Court Farm Camping is the spot for you. Dog-friendly and excellently wild, this wild camping site is based in oak woods on a working sheep farm. There are grass areas with picnic benches, which make an excellent spot to prop your feet up after a day’s mountaineering, climbing or hiking across Mid Wales.

The owners have lived in Mid Wales all of their lives and they’re sure you’ll love it too. The wild wooded valley is 25 minutes’ drive from the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, where there are impressive mountain peaks and lakes further on. The Cambrian Mountains are 35 minutes’ drive away for more mountaineering activities too.

That’s not all hiking-wise… with lakes, dams and pretty Powys countryside, Elan Valley (25 minutes) is yet another top spot to break in your walking boots. The visitor centre organises educational activities for kids and adults. The 177-mile Offa’s Dyke Path follows an old earthwork structure and passes through Knighton, which is just a 50-minute train ride from the Builth Road station five minutes’ walk away from Court Farm.

There’s plenty of countryside scenery on site and the sounds of sheep bleating and birds having a singsong, as you might expect from a sheep farm. If you visit in the spring, new-born baby lambs might be frolicking in the fields too.

As a wild camping site, there’s a portaloo and permission to start a firepit. Builth Wells, 20 minutes’ walk away, has lots of pubs, shops, cafés and restaurants around the river Wye.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay due to lack for facilities, however our campsite is advertised as a wild campsite with minimal facilities only water and a portaloo.
Many people love the fact that we aren’t a large campsite and that we offer minimal facilities so that you can really appreciate the scenery and natural surrounding!

Fantastic, private feeling site with great facilities and walks.06/13/2022

    Everything about it. The site is beautiful and feels very private. The facilities, while basic, are all superb and clean. You really feel when camping here that you are wild camping. The owners are fantastic, they meet you on arrival and then leave you to it however they are contactable at any time. There are some amazing walks around the site and they provide you with a map detailing these. The firepit we ordered was great and was well worth the extra £10. Overall, this was probably the best campsite I have stayed at and we will be back here for sure.

    Disliked: 

    That we didn't spend longer here.

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your lovely review and kind words. We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to hopefully seeing you again 😊
