Middle Ninfa Farm
Middle Ninfa Farm is one of the UK’s leading small campsites and is reached by a steep winding tarmaced road from Llanfoist, crossing the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal which once served the iron works of Clydach Gorge and Pwll Ddu. The 23 acre farm lies in a historic and beautiful landscape, within the Brecon Beacons National Park on the edge of the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape World Heritage Site.
*** OPEN ALL YEAR – CAMPING ONLY***
The small unspoilt campsite now has a second timber clad ablution block with solar warm water shower and solar lighting on a level with the main site terrace.
We have 8 ‘remote’ pitches away from the main camping area and ablutions – some grassy and open, some under trees. All of these pitches have fire pits. Tennis / croquet usually available for free use by guests.
This is excellent walking country and there are fine views over the Usk Valley of the Skirrid and rural Monmouthshire. The upper third of the land, which abuts the Woodland Trust owned Punchbowl, has ben planted to broadleaf woodland. In May this is a sea of bluebells. There is also an acre of withy beds, orchards, vegetable garden, grazing for horses and sheep, ducks, bees and a tennis/croquet court.
We also run a series of three day workshops during which you will learn how to build a traditional coracle or willow structure (see our website for details).
Provisions are available from us or other local producers and fair trade outlets which are plentiful in the county.
There are a number of excellent walks from the campsite and river swimming at Crickhowell and even better at Llangynidr.
The area is rich in heritage including castles, ruined abbeys, ancient iron works, museums and the fantastic underground tours of Big Pit coalmine in nearby Blaenavon. Also a great range of adventure activities from horseriding, wall climbing, canyoning to gliding, canoeing, rafting, quadbiking- all local.
There are Festivals almost every weekend in Abergavenny and nearby market towns and villages including the nationally famous Abergavenny Food Festival, Welsh Cycling festival, Green Man Festival [Crickhowell], Green Gathering [Chepstow], Brecon Jazz Festival, Steam Fair, Cider and Perry Festival, Walking Festivals and many more.
Middle Ninfa bunkhouse provides comfortable self catering accommodation for up to six people. The rustic charm of the old stone building has been maintained while ensuring modern comforts.
