General

  • Riverside pub campsite in the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Campfires encouraged: just bring your own firewood
  • Direct access to the Beacons Way; Dan-yr-Ogof Caves within a mile

Welsh river and Welsh wander: small and friendly Tafarn-Y-Garreg Campsite is a riverside site in the Brecon Beacons National Park, with direct access to the Beacons Way footpath, the 95-mile trail meandering through the park up to the highest peak in the Black Mountains, Fan-Brycheiniog, and the Brecons's glacier lakes.

And as you might wish when staying in such a walkable place, Tafarn-Y-Garreg has a cosy pub too… It's a mountain-style chalet, serving food in the evening and a wide range of fine brews such as lagers, ales and ciders to have in front of the fire after a long day's tramp.

The camping field is shaded by trees and is a short stroll from the site amenities of a portaloo and a shower hut (flushing toilets are across the road in the pub). And as you might also wish on a site with a wild camping vibe such as this, campfires are fully encouraged, so do bring along bagfuls of marshmallows and several packs of bangers.

Local attractions

Are you a superhero fan? Have a heroic hike up to the nearby Henrhyd Falls, the highest waterfall in south Wales and used as the cover for the Batcave in The Dark Knight Rises. (It's easy to find from here: ask the amiable Tafarn-Y-Garreg Campsite owner to point you on your way.)

Slightly more gently, Tafarn-Y-Garreg has direct access to the 95 miles of the Beacons Way, running through the national park up to the mountains via woodland, moorland and farmland. It's a trail for experienced hikers and is only waymarked on the woodland stretches, so bring a compass and an Ordnance Survey map of the Brecon Beacons National Park if you want to give it a serious tackle.

The 11 miles of the Dan-yr-Ogof Caves or National Showcaves Centre for Wales are under a mile away. Once named as the greatest natural wonder in Britain, the caves are now part of a big family complex with dinosaurs, a shire horse centre and farm, playgrounds and more.

For a bit of fishing, head to the fly fishing of the Crai Reservoir, a wild brown trout fishery with full access to its stony banks.
