Tranquil, adults-only camping in the Brecon Beacons with immediate access to the surrounding hills.

The adults-only policy isn’t really what makes Cuckoo Camping so tranquil. It’s certainly true that restricting visitors to age 25 and older ensures the noise levels are kept low. But there’s something far greater that provides the real assurance of a mellow ambience – the location.

Cuckoo Camping is a Brecon Beacons hideout like no other. Small, secluded and restricted to just 15 campfire-friendly, tent-only pitches, the owners have kept the meadow to a manageable and sociable scale. The space itself is open but shielded on all sides by bushy hedgerows that provide shelter from the wind, while a small pond helps attract extra wildlife throughout the year. To the west, great hills climb away from the campsite, creased by the gentle wear of rivers and streams that have wound their way through the landscape for centuries. All are easily accessible via footpaths that run immediately past the campsite – the great walks of the Brecon Beacons National Park are right there on your doorstep.

The size of the campsite suits the ‘rustic’ style of the facilities. A small static caravan houses a camp kitchen with washing up sinks, a fridge, freezer, kettle, toaster and microwave, plus an indoor seating area for rainy days. The plywood-clad interior gives away its homemade nature, with the chipboard continued in the newly built shower area next door. Simple but effective, it acts as a central spot for organising yourself for the day ahead, wherever you choose to go.

A particular highlight – and one that is well connected with the campsite – is the nearby Red Kite Feeding Centre in Llanddeusant. Cuckoo Camping is owned by the very same people, hence the campsite’s keen-ness to keep things quiet and nature friendly. Opened in 2002, the eco-friendly centre provides bird lovers the ideal opportunity to witness Red Kites, Buzzards and other birds of prey feeding. Head along (its just a short drive from the campsite) and watch from the specially built hide as the birds compete for the meat provided. Most days, over 50 birds gather for the event and the hide is just feet away from where they swoop, soar and dive on the food.

Absolutely amazing place!

What a little gem of a site! The only negative to get out of the way first, is that you won't want to leave!!!! Every pitch has a firepit & I was lucky enough to pitch next to the pond which had a pinic table & is almost a private little pitch away from the main field. The pond was full of wildlife & very much enjoyed breakfast watching the dragonflies dance with each other! The facilities are fantastic in terms of what's on offer. There is a fridge, freezer, microwave & kettle in the camp kitchen with large pans for use when cooking on the firepit itself. There is even a socket for people to charge phones & unbelievably wifi!!!! There were cups, tea, coffee & sugar available to use freely. There are plastic chairs for use if camping light & a cute little covered outdoor area attached the kitchen/toilet block for use when it's raining, again with a firepit! There's an "honesty box" on the wall for anything you use which I found very sweet. Being adults only means that you go to sleep & wake up in peace, quiet & the odd animal in the distance, absolute bliss! Lastly & by no means least are the wonderful owners! From the time I booked the service was fantastic & they're such a lovely couple, very knowledgeable about the area & in particular the red kites that were around as they actually run feeding sessions with the kites. They really are the most welcoming people & made my stay all that more brilliant! I can't wait to go back & in particular join in on one their red kite feeding sessions! A fab site run by fab people :-)
If you're looking for the perfect setting, located in wonderful countryside with the sound of a mountain stream, peace and quiet and no children, this campsite is hard to beat. There's plenty of space, no cars, great fire pits and piping hot showers and kitchen, its a little bit of paradise. We thoroughly enjoyed our few days and will definitely be returning. Thanks Pete and see you again soon.
