Croeso, Welcome to Newcourt Farm Campsite
In the 1950s Mills Brothers established Newcourt Farm as a Riding Centre, leading pony treks into the Black Mountains, and as a Camping Site for tents, caravans and motorhomes. We have a large camping area to cater for the development and wellbeing of children, Scouts, Girl Guides, Boys Brigade, Schools and other educational groups and for those participating in The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
Walkers, cyclist and families are also welcome to enjoy what the Brecon Beacons has to offer.
We are a rural campsite set within the 520 square miles of the Brecon Beacons National Park - Wales’ first European Geopark. The Brecon Beacons National Park has been designated an International Dark Sky Reserve - the first place in Wales to achieve this award and only the fifth in the world. Newcourt Farm Campsite offers the ideal base to explore this area of outstanding natural beauty, to embrace and enjoy the true taste of Wales. Truly the ‘Land of Plenty’ and inspiration of poetry and song.
Newcourt Farm Campsite is idyllic for the holiday maker wishing to get away from it all, enabling you the chance to unwind and relax. Sit back and take in the stunning panoramic views across the Wye Valley, listen to the buzzards calling overhead and enjoy beautiful sunsets. On a clear night above the Brecon Beacons stargazers are able to see the Milky Way, as well as numerous major constellations, bright nebulas and even meteor showers, making us the perfect destination to visit to get a better view of the night sky. "Perfect location to ponder our place in the universe." Don't forget to bring the binoculars or telescope.
For those looking for a more active holiday the site is ideally suited for keen hill walkers, cyclists and mountain bikers. There are activity centres nearby for adventurous types wishing to take part in outdoor pursuits. We are able to accommodate supervised groups and schools, particularly those taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. The Black Mountains and miles of open countryside are easily accessible. There are many public footpaths to follow throughout the area. Horse riding, swimming, fishing, golf and gliding are all available close by.
Being within the Brecon Beacons National Park, the campsite is in a protected area where the aims of the Authority are to conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the area. Newcourt Farm is committed to this aim.
What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
