We can dream of better times at Middle Ninfa
April 2nd 2020
Let imagine a holiday in the sun-kissed Brecon Beacons landscape. Enjoying the meandering footpaths, that carry you straight from the doorstep to a myriad of relaxing destinations.
The Government has announced further measures to combat the spread of Corona Virus. These include strong advice that people should not visit the countryside, even to self-isolate in their own second homes or campsites. We have therefore taken the decision to close both the bunkhouse and campsite for the foreseeable future. We do this reluctantly as we feel that our remote facilities are just what people need as relief from being confined to a small house or flat.
We will reopen as soon as Government policy approves of holidaying. If you wish to make a provisional booking further on into the year (at the moment we suggest no sooner than June), you are free to do so. All guests who have sent deposits will be refunded in case of cancellation due to the virus.
We wish all our guests (past, present and future) well.
Newly laid Hedge at Middle Ninfa Eco Bunkhouse and Campsite
February 13th 2020
Laid by a Wwoofer volunteer this hedge is the boundary between our fields and the 9 acres of broad leaf woodland we planted between 1997 and 2001. The wood is diverse and lovely to walk through on the network of paths. The bluebells are already through even though it only February, so they will be early this year
We have acquired a couple of donkeys on grass keep which give Fly the horse company. They don’t ee-aw!
Other new residents include a pair of very beautiful feral cats which campers will surely soon tame, and three big Muscovy ducks.
First nights accommodation on the Beacons Way
August 20th 2019
Walking from East to West the start of the Beacons Way is at Abergavenny Train station. A good base for the night before the walk begins is Middle Ninfa a 6 bed bunkhouse with camping just 2 miles walk from Abergavenny.
Middle Ninfa Farm is reached by a steep, winding tarmaced road from Llanfoist, crossing the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal which once served the iron works of Clydach Gorge and Pwll Ddu. The 23 acre farm lies in a historic and beautiful landscape, within the Brecon Beacons National Park on the edge of the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape World Heritage Site.
This is excellent walking country and there are fine views over the Usk Valley of the Skirrid and rural Monmouthshire. The upper third of the land, which abuts the Woodland Trust owned Punchbowl, has been planted to broadleaf woodland. In May this is a sea of bluebells. There is also an acre of withy beds, orchards, vegetable garden, grazing for horses and sheep, ducks, bees and a tennis/croquet court.
