A bunkbarn in a special place
A little while ago, Middle Ninfa described themselves as ‘a very special campsite’ and with some justification too.
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. The owner’s cottage is an old charcoal burner’s home and the bunk barn is the old barn. The campsite pitches aren’t all cheek by jowl on a flat green desert. These ones are scattered across the mountainside in cleared terraces. Both campfires and wild camping are permitted. Cool.
The bunkhouse is a little gem. It sleeps a maximum of four, two of whom must be on the double futon downstairs. The other four wind up teh spiral staircase to the mezzanine platform. The original features and rustic charm of the stone building has been retained whilst ensuring modern comforts. The ground floor has an open lounge / dining area and fire; a well-equipped kitchen and toilet / shower room. Outside there is a stone barbecue, table and duck pond. The animals do tend to wander over and show an interest – from the ducks to the horses!
The vibe of the place is influenced by the owner’s interest in conservation and stewardship of the land. They run workshops and events as well as practising the skills themselves.
No wonder it was rated number three in the UK by the Tiny Campsite Guide.
