This year I have two camping urges I would like to fufill, one is to camp near the beach, the other is to experience a bit more wildness. I want to step out of the van in the morning and be wowed by the scenery. A field and a bit of farmland is not going to do it for me.
The closest place to me for this sort of wildness is the Brecon Beacons and I have come across the very promisingly named ‘campbyastream‘.
‘Cwmnanthir is a small, family run camp site on the western borders of the Brecon Beacons. The field based site is situated alongside the Nant Hir river adjacent to coppiced woodlands. Buzzards, herons, red kites and other wildlife complement our free range poultry, sheep and waterfowl.’
As you might expect the site allows campfires, is small and non commercial and is of course by a stream. Additionally, it is possible to walk to Henrhyd falls (the tallest falls in Wales) from the campsite. Sounds totally marvellous to me and I am itching to go. So it’s official this will be our first trip of the season, just need the weather to warm up a little bit…
Now, to decide on the other campsites I will investigate this year!
