Campsite Review – AberbranComments Off on Campsite Review – Aberbran
The site is approached from a turning off the A40 and a narrowish road through Aberbran, past the PYO farm and over the stone bridge and a sloping entrance into the site. We have quite a large overhang and managed to turn in easily without grinding the bottom of the van.
We visited in July and the site was awash with hanging baskets and pots which makes a very traditional and pretty setting. They’ve kept the railway signs too which is fun. Reception is at the front of the site and we were met by the smiling and friendly wardens. As our van is 26ft long we were allocated a suitable pitch as not all of them accommodate larger vehicles. Our pitch was on grass, but there are also hardstanding pitches available which are more suited to smaller motorhomes and caravans.
Each pitch has electric hookup and there are drinking water taps and grey waste and black waste emptying points at the front and back of the site. There is no drive over grey or black waste emptying.
The site is very quiet and there is not much to do in Aberbran itself except the pick your own fruit farm. We also found a public footpath about 200m from the site which took us over fields full of sheep, with plenty of bird watching opportunities. There’s also a bus stop nearby with buses to Brecon, a busy market town with a local market on Tuesday and Friday.
