Brecon Beacons National Park
From the depths of its limestone caves to the grandeur of Pen y Fan and Cribyn, its highest peaks, there’s plenty to explore in this gem of a national park. By day, there are moorlands, trails and towns to discover, while by night, you can feast your eyes on the stars.
Rolling green landscapes? Waterfalls? Characterful towns? Epic mountains? They’re all here and more.
Love Trails On Tour will be held in the campsite at Sleeping Giant Bunkhouse Rhongyr Isaf Centre, Pen-y-cae SA9 1GB
Due to the campsite being so rural, parking on site is limited so please do not park at the bunkhouse. Instead, please park at the National Park Car Park at Penwyllt, which is one mile up the road. It will be possible for you to drop off camping equipment at the campsite before going to park your car, then make the short 10 minute walk down to the site. We will be on hand on the day to show you the parking if needed.
You'll need to bring enough food for breakfast and lunches for the weekend, or you can make a trip to the local SPAR (about 1 mile away), or one of the quaint local pubs close by. On Saturday evening, we have arranged for a local food pop-up serving authentic Welsh food & amazing Jamaican Street Food. The pop up will be available from around 17:30 and 21:30 on Saturday night, and you can pay by card on the day.
If the weekend is cancelled by us for any reason (including but not limited to Covid--19, ie government imposed restrictions that mean the event can't legally go ahead), you will have the option to receive a full cash refund.
This is not an exhaustive kit list, but we would recommend bringing the following with you on the weekend;
- Camping gear including tent, roll matt and sleeping bag
- Towel & washkit
- Small camping stove if you wish to make your own breakfast / dinners
- Trail running shoes
- A running pack / rucksack / race vest
- Full waterproofs (you never know!)
- Yoga matt / towel
- Map of the local area and/or navigation device
Getting to the campsite is easiest to get to by car. Type 'Sleeping Giant Bunkhouse' into Google maps and it'll take you straight there. If you're coming by train, the closest stations are either Abergavenny or Swansea. From here, you can call the local taxi service SA9 Cabs on 07450606978.
You can pitch up at the campsite any time from 3pm on Friday 4th September. But you can also join on the Saturday if that is easier.
Yes! However your dog will need to remain on it's lead in the campsite at all times.
Absolutely! We're a super friendly bunch of runners and always want to welcome people coming on their own. Due to the Government rules and restrictions, we aren't organising any official 'Guided Trail Runs' like you would usually see at Love Trails, but there will always be someone from the Love Trails team around and we are more than happy to help with routes and trail running. I will also be doing a map reading 'Drop In' on Saturday morning for any questions or queries about the routes.
Please email us email@example.com and we'll be happy to help
