Riverside glamping in the Brecon Beacons with wild swimming, woodland walks and mountain hikes on the doorstep.

For sheer rugged beauty, the Brecon Beacons National Park takes some topping. The UK’s seventh largest national park features some of Wales’ highest mountain ranges, acres of enchanting woodland and a whole region bejewelled with spectacular waterfalls. It’s an outdoor adventurist’s dream, with myriad walks to enjoy and dramatic scenery to savour – an area that’s perfectly suited to sate our longing to ‘get away from it all’. And at a perfectly appointed little glamping retreat in the heart of the Beacons, there’s arguably no better spot in the national park to take it all in.

Set just four miles outside Brecon town amidst the foothills of the mighty Pen-y-Fan, Camp Cynrig is an off-grid glamping village – comprising a pair of Native American-style Sioux tipis, a bell tent and a fantastically handcrafted wooden cabin – that’s perfectly placed to explore this wondrous part of Mid Wales. Despite their eco-credentials (including the cabin’s ingenious solar-heated bucket shower), facilities are more than ample with comfy beds, sofas, chairs, wood-burning stoves, flushing toilets, showers and rustic cooking facilities, with all the utensils included. All units have their own barbecue-cum-firepit for enjoying star-studded evenings of this designated dark sky reserve.

Location-wise, the site is a haven for all manner of flora and fauna, thanks in no small measure to the River Cynrig which borders the site – take the small wooden footbridge leading to the National Park woodland, then follow its course for wild swimming and paddling upstream. A multitude of walking trails emanate from the glampsite into the heart of the national park, while further afield some of the Wales’ most awe-inspiring natural wonders await. If visiting in spring, head to Coed-y-Bwyndd woods to be awestruck by the bluebells or eastwards to the Usk Valley and Vale of Neath, the UK’s ‘waterfall country’ that’s home to Aberdulais, Melincourt and the 88ft Sgwd Henrhyd waterfall.

The campsite owner says

Camp Cynrig Glamping Village in Wales is a family run venture and 2012 was our first year in the UK glamping holiday business. During 2015 Rob was hard at work building a Camping Cabin to add to our Glamping Site and Winter 2017 was spent building a Shepherds Hut Kitchenette to accompany the Brand New Bell Tent. The cabin is even home to a one of a kind bucket shower - heated by an innovative system using a black hosepipe on the roof heated by the power of the sun!!

The site is home to a Bell Tent which sleeps 4 - this has a handmade double bed, logburner and its very own kitchen and dining area in a Shepherds Hut Structure hand built by Rob.  There are two 21ft Tipis which each sleep a family of 5 on futon beds and both contain central fire pits, gas camping stoves and all your essential cooking equipment. The 6 berth Camping Cabin hand-built by Rob has a kingsize memory foam bed, two sets of full-sized single bunk beds, logburner, sofas and chairs. It then has an al fresco, undercover, kitchenette with gas hobs and woodfired oven.

We know our area inside and out and are always willing to help you plan how to spend your holiday and suggest some of what we think are the best places to visit in Wales. The glamping campsite is on land adjoining our house and we welcome both adults and children alike to wander the woodland footpath and visit our chickens. We aim to create an enjoyable and relaxing Mid Wales Holiday.
