Situated on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, our orchard campsite provides a friendly relaxed atmosphere and an authentic camping experience.

We are here to make your camping holiday as enjoyable as possible. The orchard has a permanent communal fireplace and we have raised fire pits which can be placed anywhere for our campers to use. We sell seasoned firewood at £5 per bag, kindling can be gathered from the woodland. For a more secluded and wild camping experience, we have some pitches by the river. Our new outdoor kitchen makes cooking outdoors a real pleasure and is a small sociable hub for our visitors to meet. If the weather is not great, we also have a rainy day recreation room, a place for the whole family to hang out, play ping pong or a board game with a book of ideas and materials for adventure and creative play.

Lower Porthamel has the fishing rights on the Llynfi. Fly fishing and course fishing day passes are available at the farmhouse.

The showers are always hot and the wash area is a short distance from the camping orchard. For groups or small parties we now have our new ’Stable house camping room’, making camping all the more simple and lightweight as we provide the beds and small kitchen area above the stable block. Perfect for groups – just bring your own sleeping bag!

Our nature trail is a beautiful round 2.5km walk from the campsite through the farm fields and along the old Mid Wales Railway line. The track runs largely through woodland and along the River Lynfi which is an area of special scientific interest. The valley is rich in fauna and wildlife, otters, Kingfishers and Badgers can all be seen and there are plenty of picnic spots along the way.

The Brecon Beacons National Park offers breathtaking views and great walking country. Canoeing, Kayaking, Pony trekking, mountain bike riding and gliding can all be enjoyed nearby. Or if you are wanting a more gentle activity, spend the day in Hay on Wye with it’s famous bookshops, antique shops, galleries pubs and restaurants.

Summer campers can enjoy fresh produce from the farm and organic meat BBQ packs from our Small Farms Butcher shop can be purchased at the farmhouse.

We invite you to come and enjoy yourselves at Lower Porthamel Farm Camping and have a no car policy on the camping fields and orchard. Wheelbarrows are available for you to bring your gear to the sites.
