Cae Glas Camping: View from the bell tent

General

  • Peaceful site in the Brecon Beacons, five minutes from Abercraf
  • A five-minute drive to the National Showcaves; 45 mins to Pen y Fan
  • Gorgeous mountain views on site; pony treks and waterfalls close by

So quiet you can hear the owls hooting after dark – sound like the kind of place for you? Then get along to Glamorgan and Cae Glas Camping, in the Brecon Beacons National Park and five minutes’ drive from the village of Abercraf.

That blissful peace and quiet is the reason most guests cite for choosing a stay here – and as such you’ll be asked to keep the noise down, particularly after dark, to ensure a sense of calm for both visitors and wildlife.

To further boost that peaceful vibe facilities have been kept to a minimum, but all guests will have access to toilets, showers and a washing-up area and are welcome to bring along dogs and barbecues. There's a firepit area here too, and firewood can be purchased on site.

There are some stunning mountain views to be had here, and sitting down to admire them for a while is a most rewarding option. That said, there’s plenty of activity nearby should you wish: this is waterfall walk country, and a riding centre just down the road that can sort pony treks for all the family. It’s also a short drive to get to places like Craig y Nos Castle and the National Showcaves Centre for Wales or a slightly longer one (about 45 minutes) to Pen y Fan, the National Botanic Garden of Wales and the beaches of the Gower Peninsula.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Very relaxed, open field camping. Toilet & shower room very nice. Kids were able to feed the chicken's. Some lovely walks from the site and only a 5-10 min drive to the caves, waterfalls and some lovely pubs.

    Loved the rural location, access to the mountain through the gate at the bottom of the field was ideal to walk our dogs. socially distanced check in was a great idea. We enjoyed it so much we immediately booked to go back again next weekend!

Local attractions

Once you’ve dragged yourselves away from the views on site, it’s time to explore the surrounding area. Start close by with a horseback trek from the local stables (five minutes’ drive) or a walk to Henrhyd Falls (10 minutes). The National Showcaves Centre for Wales (five minutes) is a fab place to visit on any day, but makes a particularly good option for a wet-weather day out.

If the nippers need a little break from all the scenery admiring, perhaps they’d appreciate a visit to meet the cheeky residents of Wales Ape & Monkey Sanctuary (10 minutes). And if the grownups need a treat to spur them along to the end of a hike, maybe a little something from the whisky and gin selections at Penderyn Distillery (25 minutes)?

A bit further afield there’s plenty to explore around the Brecon Beacons National Park, including the splendid Four Falls Walk (half an hour) and the uphill challenge of Pen y Fan (45 minutes), the tallest British peak south of Snowdonia. The National Botanic Garden of Wales and Mumbles beach are both 45 minutes away if you’re after something a little less energetic.
