- Farm site with stunning 360-degree views of the Black Mountain
- A five-minute drive from the National Showcaves Centre for Wales
- On the Beacons Way trail in the Brecon Beacons National Park
Room to breathe and a friendly welcome – what more could you ask for from a scenic site like Eco Camping Wales in the Brecon Beacons’ gorgeous Glyntawe valley?
Well, 360-degree views of the spectacular Black Mountain for starters. The environmentally friendly setup is another big bonus – the site channels cold mountain spring water into its hand-washing basins, for example (not for drinking, bring your own) – as is the back-to-nature feel (there are no concrete hardstandings or electric hook-ups here).
This Glamorgan site encourages open-fire cooking across most of the grounds (bring reusable barbecues/firepits and raise them high off the ground, please) and phone reception is limited – so you can gleefully tell work they won’t be able to get in touch.
Try to get as much time out of the office as you can to take on all the nearby treks; the owners particularly recommend roaming to Llyn y Fan Fawr lake on the long-distance Beacons Way trail that passes the park. Wander to one of the pubs a few minutes from the site too, pick up supplies at the village shop in Ynyswen or head to Ystradgynlais’s coffee shops.
A few bits and pieces to be aware of if you’re planning on staying here: the shower is coin operated; you'll need to bring your own drinking water; firewood/kindling is for sale on site (the owners are happy for you to bring your own); and there’s no commercial waste so please be prepared to take all rubbish home and leave the space as you find it.
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.
- Click the button ‘Make another booking like this’ on the confirmation page to easily rebook.
- Ask to be sited together in the ‘Special requests’ box on the booking form.
You can also try filtering your search by group type and by sites allowing multiple tents/caravans/motorhomes per pitch.

It would be difficult to land on a better location for stints in south Wales than this one: set in the Brecon Beacons National Park, it’s a five-minute drive from the National Showcaves Centre for Wales and its scenic Craig-y-Nos park. You can also hop on a horse at the local stable or hire an ebike to explore the mountains.
Head to Henrhyd Falls (15 minutes' drive) to walk behind the wall of water; you might recognise this spot from several films, including Batman. The Wales Ape & Monkey Sanctuary is nearby as well, so drop in to see the primates before meeting the meerkats at Pen-y-Cae’s microzoo (five minutes).
Wanting more waterfalls? There are three to see while wending your way along a walking loop near Pontneddfechan (15 minutes), a popular part of the national park for pottering about.
Fan of fishing? Get the rod out at the River Tawe or by the Crai Reservoir (10 minutes). You could also angle down by the sea at the Gower’s gorgeous beaches near Swansea (an hour).
