Riverside Caravan Park is in Crickhowell, a small and quirky town in Powys with a number of specialist shops, as well as a number of pubs and restaurants. It is on the A40 between Brecon (to the north west) and Abergavenny (to the south east) so it's easy to access, no matter what your starting point is.
In the heart of the breathtaking Brecon Beacons National Park, if you love the great outdoors, a pitch at this campsite could help you get out there. Several walking routes head out from Crickhowell and cover the area around the park. And if you need some kit, one of the stores in the town, Crickhowell Adventure Gear, ensures that you have everything you need for a safe, comfortable and enjoyable time exploring Crickhowell, the Brecon Beacons and beyond. You could also head out on two wheels, or enjoy the views from the comfort of your car. There are some well known and challenging mountain biking routes and trails in Cwmbran, which is about 40 minutes south of this site – follow the A465, then the A4042.
A wide range of activities can be discovered throughout the Brecon Beacons. Many of the waterways running through the park offer opportunities for fishing, while guests looking for an adrenaline rush can occupy themselves with watersports, climbing and abseiling at various points across the park.
It will take you under half an hour to drive up the road to Brecon, a lovely market town. Less than 20 miles down the A465 from Riverside Caravan Park is Merthyr Tydfil. It'll take around 40 minutes to drive there. You're also not too far from the Welsh/English border, which means that the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are accessible. In addition, Monmouth is a 40-minute drive, the cathedral city Hereford is an hour away and Hay-on-Wye, which sits right on the English/Welsh border and is famous for its annual literary festival, is about a half hour drive from Riverside Caravan Park.
If you're enjoying your caravan holidays in Wales at staying within the Brecon Beacons National Park at this campsite, while the main pull is likely to be the fabulous views and the ability to really get away from it and maybe to throw yourself into a physical activity, with lots of villages and towns to investigate too, we're sure you'll have a great time.
