A warm Welsh welcome greets all holidaymakers upon arrival at Pencelli Castle Caravan and Camping Park. This multi award winning family run park, in the heart of Brecon Beacons National Park, is ideally located for walking, cycling and mountain biking enthusiasts, as well as those who enjoy pony trekking or canoeing, with an adjoining canal the perfect location for the latter. This beautiful area is also a haven for those who are simply seeking peace and tranquillity to relax and recharge their batteries, a great escape from the stresses of everyday life.
Pencelli Castle Caravan and Camping Park is situated at the edge of Pencelli Village, and lies 4 miles east of the historic market town of Brecon. Peaceful and small, the park is within easy walking distance of the highest peaks of the Brecon Beacons, great news for those looking to take on a challenge during their trip!
Holidaymakers can indulge in a chat with the locals, enjoy food prepared with locally produced ingredients, or have a pint of ‘real’ ale or cider at The Royal Oak Inn, which is situated just 150 metres from the main entrance to the park. The nearby villages of Talybont, Llanfrynach and Llangynidr also feature a number of great pubs and friendly, welcoming local businesses.
A small shop within the park means that all of your holiday essentials are within easy reach, although taking a short walk to other locations around the Brecon Beacons to buy other goods is one of the most scenic and inspirational shopping trips you could ever wish to take.
Escape to some of the most beautiful landscape in the whole of Wales, and take the whole family along for an inspirational, fun holiday that you will never forget. Just remember to bring your energetic side if you are planning to take on some of the undulating terrain in the area, particularly via bicycle!

We have stayed at this wonderfull site may times now and have found that they consistantly keep up their high standards of cleanliness and beautiful surroundings. The staff are exceptionally helpfull , and the owners are every ready to help. I am very fussy about the standards in the toilet blocks and have yet to find anywhere of the standard. The gardens are a delight. If you want a peacefull break with spotless facilities in beautiful surroundings, with several eating places close by and a vairety of things to do in short travelling distance this is the place for you. we love it and cant recommend it highly enough.

This site has the cleanest toilets and bathrooms that i have ever seen on a site.If you are disabled or have children the family bathroom makes life so much easier.The childrens play area is lovely with a separate area for ball games both of which are well away from the caravans so people without children can still enjoy peace and quiet.The whole site is so well kept,it really is a pleasure to stay here.The village pub is just a 2 min walk away and serves good food.This site is just as good out of season.Plenty to do in the area.Big downside for us is that no dogs are allowed so we cant visit very often.
