Brecon Beacons CMC Site, Brecon, LD3 7SH, Tel 01874623325

To Find Site:- From Brecon A40 bypass, at the eastern end, take A470 at roundabout signed for Hereford. In about 200 metres turn right at campsite sign and campsite is straight ahead.

This site is situated near to the town of Brecon. It is a spacious site which is open from mid-March to the end of October and accepts non-members and tents. The site was refurbished in 2014. There are 130 pitches including 106 hardstandings 54 of which are serviced with fresh and waste water. The remaining 24 pitches are on grass. In addition there are 10 tent pitches with electrics. Electric points are handy to all pitches and are rated at 16 amps using CEE17 blue connectors. Despite the site information saying that TV reception is poor there is no booster system available. There are two really excellent toilet blocks complete with laundry and dishwash facilities. The site is well served by service points which also have chemical toilet emptying points. There is also an excellent motorhome service point with a drive over open grill for grey water disposal. For children there is a large field with playground and ball game pitch, plus space to spare. There is site wide WiFi which seemed to provide a reasonable service although when the site was busier I did employ a booster aerial. An unusual feature of this site is that it has a fairly comprehensive site shop run by a lovely lady. No need to order papers in advance as there is usually a good supply. Reception next door sells some guides to the area. The site also has a storage facility, not sure how this works with the limited site opening.

As the site name suggests it is a good base for exploring the Brecon Beacons. The site is also convenient for those that either don’t have or would prefer not to use their own transport. The town of Brecon is an easy walk of about one and half miles along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Access to the canal is near to the site but does involve crossing two very busy roads so care is required. Also those with bikes the access down to the canal is quite steep. Brecon is a nice town with most of the facilities you will need, there are three supermarkets including a Morrisons. The 43 bus, not the X43, service has a stop immediately outside of the site entrance. Reception will provide you with a timetable.
