Erwlon Caravan & Camping Park Campsite Review

01448aa5-b28a-49b3-aab1-1dd499f08761
Heading west along the A40, it’s easy to find Erwlon as it’s signposted off to the left next to some woodland. The wide entrance then sweeps into the campsite via the reception area, which is housed in a conservatory. I’ve visited this site three times in the last few years and owner Peter is always incredibly laid-back and friendly. There is definitely something in the air around these parts which makes you feel relaxed.

The access road is tarmac and winds between the pitches, which have plenty of space behind them and are offered with gravelled hardstandings (with either 10 or 16 amp hook-ups). Full service pitches with water fill and empty point are also available. The pitches are grouped in clusters – some on elevated terraces – and are all spacious and easy to get to. Neat plantings, small shrubs and trees give the campsite a smart appearance and it is well-maintained wherever you look.

For motorhomers it’s a very convenient site as not only is there a motorhome dump point (even catering for black waste), but the chemical empty point is noteworthy as it’s so posh being housed in a marble-effect room. Central to all pitches is a log cabin-style toilet block that is the campsite’s star feature. It won a Loo of the Year Award in 2007 and features wide access ramps for disabled guests, as well as family rooms and large shower rooms. It’s immaculate throughout and also offers laundry and drying rooms, as well as hanging baskets at certain times of year. If you’ve just come back from hiking, walking or mountain biking in the area (the surrounding Brecon Beacons and the Cambrian Mountains offer lots of great rides) then this heated block would be very welcome. The tent campers – who are housed in a separate field away from the touring pitches – must be equally grateful of this excellent amenity building.

Children have plenty of green space to run around in and there’s a large wooden outdoor play area for them to enjoy.
Although there’s no shop or café on site, this really doesn’t matter as Llandovery is a five-minute walk and offers a plenty of pubs, cafés and restaurants. It also has supermarkets, though most people will not bother walking that far as there is a supermarket about 300 yards away from the tent field across the road. So if you’ve turned up on site without the bacon for the morning, it’s not a problem!

Llandovery itself does offer parking (but there’s a 2.5-tonne limit in some car parks) and is a very picturesque town with a castle framing the background. If you don’t want to walk into town, the site also offers bike hire and its location makes it an ideal base for further exploration of the Brecon Beacons. There are lots of cycling trails running through this region that cater for family rides to full-on mountain bike trails, such as The Gap, which connects the Brecon Canal, Taff Trail, Brinore Tramway with the Gap Road.You can also enjoy bird watching, fishing, pony riding and mountain boarding in the area too.
It’s worth pointing out that the site offers WiFi access too, so you’ve got no excuse for not catching up on those emails...
