Everyone enjoys the camp fire at Middle Ninfa

Turn back the clock, escape the rat race and spend a few days at Middle Ninfa. Surround yourself with nature and the magical sound of silence in the Brecon Beacons, where fresh air, mountain views, lush green scenery and wild life abound. Choose from the 6 bed bunkhouse or one of the private camping terraces, scattered across the mountainside. Why not bring a group and book the whole site? The bunkhouse and all the campsites have firepits for small campfires. We provide bags of firewood for £3 or guests are welcome to bring their own, but ask guests not to gather wood from anywhere in our area.
