About Brandy House Farm

Suitable For

Glampers, wild campers, groups, well-behaved dogs and DIY livery for guests who bring their own horses – yes. Caravans, campervans, motorhomes – no.

Nearby

Walking and mountain biking from the doorstep most often centres around the Glyndwrs Way, an excellent national trail which passes through Brandy House Farm. Richard and Medina have excellent knowledge of the surrounding routes and can help walkers, cyclers or equestrians alike in their planning, they also have a handy route portfolio waiting for you. For the most immediate exploration, either walk up onto Beacon Hill Crown Estate from your door step or stroll into the village (5 minutes away) to join the footpaths on the Shropshire side of the border. Beacon Hill, a 6000 acre upland nature reserve, is an excellent place to see wildlife. The heath clad landscape attracts birds like the nesting Wheatear, Meadow Pipit, Stonechat, Merlin and Peregrine, among others. It's wild without being rugged and an excellent place to begin walking in the area. Cyclists will find great XC riding on the doorstep and easy journeys to several world class mountain bike centres with freeride, downhill and uplift facilities. The area hosts MTB enduro and the Autumn Epic, One of Britain's top rated Cycle Sportives. For something a little less energetic try exploring Powys Castle, 20 miles away, The Hall at Abbey-Cwm-Hir, 20 miles, or Judges Lodging Presteigne, 18 miles away.

Food & Drink

If you prefer not to cook then it is possible to book a campers breakfast brought to your pod or caravan.  The Wharf, local village pub ideal for a drink is just 5 minutes walk away but doesn't serve food.  The Radnorshire Arms, Beguildy (01547 510634), 2 miles away, is the nearest pub serving food, a wonderfully old building that is home to friendly service and good food.  Beguildy also has a lovely traditional village shop.

Stunning

Fabulous location. We stayed in one of the pods and could not fault anything. Peace and quiet and no phone signal so just bliss. We will definitely be going back.

perfect weekend away in the cutest caravan

My partner and I stayed in the Rose Vintage Caravan Friday - Sunday. The caravan itself was adorable, plenty of storage space, good sized fridge and the location meant we had lovely views to wake up to. In the evenings we used the fire pit we rented from the farm in our private garden area to toast marshmallows! We took our young dog with us who seemed to enjoy himself thoroughly! The owners were very friendly and suggested some places to take him for a walk and the guide they provided via email before our stay had loads of information about things to do in the area. We really enjoyed our weekend here and would definitely book again.

Perfect Long Weekend

I’d been craving some outdoors time and this site caught my eye. It was perfect in every way! The pods are spacious and well designed with very comfy beds. The facilities were great with an eco toilet conveniently located near the pod. Although there are three pods, a caravan, cottages, B&B and camping, the beautiful landscaping made it feel very private. The owners were very friendly and I appreciate all the extra steps they taken during COVID, will definitely be returning although maybe to camp as their camping spots looked so sweet!

Peace and quiet in a cosy pod with views to die for

I loved my stay and was so sorry to leave. The pods are cosy and well-designed, you can light a fire in the evening, you can get a delicious breakfast and it’s all super-clean and well organised, with friendly hosts. The hill walking is excellent and on the doorstep. The views of the lovely Teme Valley below and the moorland above make this a glorious setting. Excellent recycling and a spotless eco-toilet, as well as a flush toilet and shower. I don’t have a car and used the pub and shop in Beguildy 2m away, which are brilliant, and a recommended and highly-reliable cab from Knighton station. A really special place.

Getting There

If you are approaching from Knighton, turn up a sharp left as you pass the speed limit sign on reaching the village, opposite the village sign (please note that the Brandy House is not signed). Continue up the lane over the two cattle-grids and Brandy House Farm is at the top about 150 metres from the main road.

If you are approaching from Newtown, leave on the A483 (signed Llandrindod Wells) to Dolfor. Turn left onto the B4355. Go through the village of Felindre and as you leave it, turn up to your right just before the end of speed limit sign (please note that the Brandy House is not signed). Continue up the lane over the two cattle-grids and Brandy House Farm is at the top about 150 metres from the main road.

If you are using a sat Nav or google maps and are approaching from the North they will more than likely take you the shorter scenic route through tiny and steep lanes missing out. For a more direct route we would recommend you go to Newtown and follow the directions above!

Knighton (0845 748 4950) is the nearest train station 9 miles away or Newtown (0845 748 4950), 12 miles away.
