Camping is how it should be at Penpont! The site, the old Rose Garden, has an informal layout – no lines of designated pitches but a variety of small private spaces in amongst the mature trees and shrubs with a central open communal space. Alternatively there are some riverside pitches and if you're lucky you'll see the otters, the kingfishers, the dippers and other wildlife.


There are a couple of deep swimming pools in the river but do bring some old trainers to paddle and swim in.


Penpont has the fishing rights to about a mile, both banks, of the River Usk. We stipulate fly only and catch & release. We charge £20 per rod per day.


There are a couple of permanent communal fire places and we have several metal raised fire pits which can be used by our campers and placed anywhere. We sell seasoned bags of logs at £5/bag – gather your own kindling and bring some old newspaper & matches. We also sell our own charcoal in the farm shop alongside our fresh produce from the walled gardens. There is also a freezer full of delicious local organic meat and eggs too.


The hot showers and loos are located within the Stable Block which is a short walk away from the camp-site. There is also a washing up sink and drainer and a stand pipe for fresh water.


Recycle, recycle, recycle: We put clearly marked bins out for people to use and welcome people's careful sorting of their rubbish!


It is very necessary to book beforehand.

We just arrived back in holland after a splendid time in Wales, I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to stay at Penpont. We stayed 5 nights on the riverside pitch and really loved the mentality and atmosphere of the place. Not only a great campsite, beautiful pitches,  all quietness and green plus the friendliness of the other guests but also the grounds itself. We walked many evenings along the river, through the woods, crossing through the maze, pondering in the walled garden and enjoying the history of the place. We even started reading up the whole history of the place through the website and this takes you back in times that whole other people we’re walking around here. The character you keep in the location really brings it alive. 
The area was great, we are garden en nature lovers so this was easy, walking the edges of Lyn fach Fan , waterfall routes and little farm shops in the area.
btw the Penpont organic shop is awesome, we cooked some nice dishes from that !
Thanks again for all !

'Just a quick note to thank you for a splendid weekend of camping. All 9 of us were extremely impressed by the excellent venue and the wonderful setting for the campsite. Although it was our intent just to use the site as a staging post for our assault on the mountains, we all agreed that we must re-visit and explore further the area around Penpont. Having been 'camping' now for a couple of years, Penpont rates as the best site to date' - C.P.
