- Peaceful campsite in a forested valley near Glynneath in Glamorgan
- A 15 minute drive to Zip World Tower, half an hour to Aberavon beach
- Lake and river fishing on site; shops and pubs 10 minutes’ drive
Hiking, biking or hill walking in the Brecon Beacons National Park (35 minutes’ drive) then coming back to cook up dinner over the flames of a campfire? Or how about angling for carp on two spring-fed lakes or the mile of private fishing on the River Neath (bring your own kit)? If this sounds Brecon brilliant, give Spring Valley Lakes a look in next time you’re around Glamorganshire.
Spring Valley Lakes is a peaceful and friendly spot located between the villages of Resolven and Glynneath with a friendly vibe and excellent amenities: ‘spotless’, ‘immaculate’ and ‘excellent’ are among the accolades heaped on the site by happy former guests.
The pace is slow for those who want to sink into a well-earned break; while the more energetic can go hiking along miles of canal, biking and hill walking, or have a go at sand-yachting or kitesurfing on south Wales beaches like Aberavon (half an hour’s drive).
Whichever option you pick, take some peaceful time out around the lake, edged by a forested valley, dwelt on by swans and carefully managed over the years (the family team at Spring Valley Lakes has been developing the farm since 1995) to its tidy and scenic setting these days.
The site is near all the local amenities in Glynneath (10 minutes), including handy supermarkets, a bakery, fish and chip shops, fast-food places and several pubs, so you have the choice of cooking alfresco at your pitch or hot-footing it into town for supper.
To generate better results:
- Choose the 'Multiple units per pitch' filter in the search results.
- Break your booking down into smaller groups and book multiple pitches.
