Journey to the Brecon Beacons to stay at Middle Ninfa bunkhouse and eco campsite. Escape the strains and stresses of modern life. Relax, recharge, get back to nature and indulge yourself in some outdoor therapy.
Once the pandemic is behind us we will all need some back to nature breaks. People will be drawn to the wilder parts of Britain where the night skies are dark and the stars bright. Where veteran trees hold their own, a wild swim is just 5 minutes away and you are surrounded the magical sound of silence. Mountain walks start at your doorstep.
Mountainside ECO camping
At Middle Ninfa campsite there are just eleven pitches widely scattered around the mountainside. Each has its own character. Facilities are minimal so don’t expect to glamp with us! But we have so much more to offer if you want to wild camp with the badgers and other night creatures wandering by. Bring your hammock if that is your thing.
Our bunkhouse was built as a barn more than 400 years ago so it has seen many generations. Short spring breaks are bookable for families or small groups. And don’t worry, if restrictions aren’t lifted by the time of your break, you’ll get a full refund. Social distancing is easy on the slopes of the Blorenge. You can use our laminated guides for walks on the mountains that circle Abergavenny. Or explore the network of footpaths through our own woodland.
Full cooking facilities are in the bunkhouse. If, however, you feel like a meal out, the choice of food within 5 minutes’ drive is bewildering. Excellent South Asian food on a budget is available in our village of Llanfoist. Thai, Chinese, Ghurkha, French and Middle Eastern food can be found in Abergavenny. Good pub grub at the Bridge Inn can be enjoyed beside the River Usk. Family friendly meals can be found at the Lamb & Flag, the Kings Arms and more than a dozen other venues in town.
Rainy Day Entertainment
It rains quite often in Wales. That’s why the landscape is so green and the meadows so lush. If walking or wild swimming in the rain is not your thing there are other great options available. Big Pit Mining Museum at Blaenavon, just 5 or 10 minutes drive over the mountain road, is a wonderful experience for all ages. For children too young to go underground there are farm parks with ample in- and outdoor space at both Raglan and Cantref Adventure Farm near Brecon.
Adventure activities lie in every direction. Horse riding, Llandegfedd watersports centre, canoeing on the Wye, rock climbing, zip wire and canyoning at Llangorse, tandem paragliding from the Blorenge, gliding, caving and more again. Castles, museums, historic churches, ironworks, markets of all kinds. Too much choice for one visit! Make sure you choose Middle Ninfa for your short break or staycation in 2021.
