Brecon Beacons, Wales: Camping and Glamping

Highlights

  • Picturesque National Park setting, on the shores of Llangorse Lake
  • Stay in a Tented Village or Lakeside Pod Village
  • Huge selection of activities, loads of water sports!

What's it like?

With the largest natural lake in South Wales right on our doorstep (literally!), our Brecon Beacons Adventure for schools and groups offers one of the best watersports programmes available in the area as well as plenty of dry land activities that make the most 
of the countryside and dramatic mountain views.

From stand up paddleboarding on Llangorse Lake to high ropes or learning bushcraft skills at our remote lakeside wild camp, this is the place to come for those wanting a real adventure in the UK.

As well as one of the best activity programmes you will find in the UK, you are spoilt for choice of accommodation here. Stay in our cosy camping pod village, set on the shores of Llangorse Lake or camping in our traditional tented villages
 at our 17 acre campsite a short walk away. New for 2020, we are building a brand new underground caving system here, an exciting new addition to an already action-packed activity programme. 

With plenty of space available at our camps, some choose to bring their whole year group along and have the whole camp all to themselves.

Accommodation

Famous for its lakes, dramatic mountains, open countryside and
 rural villages, the Brecon Beacons is a popular location for school and uniform group adventure residentials. Set in a pretty village in the Brecon Beacons National Park, with views of Pen y Fan,
 our exclusive and private tented and pod villages are ideally located to make the most 
of the water and mountain views. There is a choice of accommodation here. Choose from camping in one of our pre-erected Tented Villages (which will be exclusive to your group) at our private 17 acre Adventure camp, a short walk from the lake. Or, try something a little different and stay in our Lakeside Pod Village, ideal for those seeking a little more `indoor` comfort.

Acorn tented village- Tan Troed

Our scenic 17 acre campsite in the Brecon Beacons offers countryside views and easy access to all the land-based activities. The camp is a short walk away from Llangorse Lake, where the watersports 
take place. Our popular Tented Villages are designed specifically for groups who want to get away from the large shared dormitory blocks and enjoy a more private setting that encourages a real sense of community. Each of our traditional Tented Villages combine comfort with the joy of camping, consisting of 16-18 fire retardant PVC tents each with four beds, sprung mattresses and a solid floor (sleeping up to 60). Teacher tents sleep 2 per tent and offer a few extra luxuries such as timber beds, a wardrobe and lighting.

Each Tented Village also has its own marquee, lit 24hrs a day for dining and socializing and where drinks and fruit are always available. Around the clock, our highly experienced and qualified staff are never far away but you’ll also have your own Village Manager to support you as required.

Your group is guaranteed exclusive use of a village (based on a min. 35 paying people) and so you can make the whole space your own, perfect for group interaction and team building.

Lakeside Camping Pod Village

Our cosy Camping Pod Village set on the shores of Llangorse Lake, sleeps up to 100 guests, offering a few more indoor comforts, without losing that all important adventure feel. This is an ideal choice for larger groups wanting exclusive use. We cater for smaller groups too. 

Pupil pods sleep up to five and have proper beds, lighting and heating. Party Leader pods sleep up to three and have proper beds, a kitchenette, toilet/basin and TV. 

Close to the pods, are separate toilet and shower facilities for boys and girls, a drying room, changing rooms and a private Party Leader shower and changing area. Dining takes place in the on-site canteen and there is a function room and on-site shop, as well as space for games.
