Things to note and FAQ’s
Sharing our home with campers over the years has given us great pleasure, but does not come without its own challenges as we are just two people running the whole show by ourselves. For this reason and in order that we can both continue doing so in the years to come, we respectfully ask that campers take note of our requests below…. it really helps us to keep the wheels running smoothly and efficiently. We maybe don’t always get everything right ….but we try our best.
To Book Camping – please state how many people in total (max 5) stating adult or child (giving ages of children), tents (stating size/berth), vehicles (as few as poss please, we have limited parking space and cannot take 1 person per car over busy periods!), and nights you would like to stay for. If you would like to bring a dog along too, please tell us what breed it is. Contact us here
New Arrivals – are welcome from 12.30pm until 7pm (a bit later is possible if by prior arrangement). Please stop and book-in at our kitchen door on arrival (first door on the right) before driving down to the parking area.
Departures – please by 11.30am at the latest. This allows us the time we both need to perform all our tasks before 12.30pm arrivals’. It also prevents congestion on the single track and offers new guests the full choice of where to pitch.
Payment – we take cash payment on arrival … (sorry, we don’t have a card machine)
Deposits/Cancellations – we don’t ask for a deposit (unlike most campsites), but we do ask that you please give at least 3 days notice (1 week for BH weekends and the Jazz Festival) if you are unable to come, so that we can offer your spot to someone on our Cancellation List. Late cancellations (ie giving less than the required notice) are subject to payment in full, as they leave us with empty spaces that could have been offered to others.
Recycling and Separating all of your Rubbish – into our bins is absolutely essential … (we may not be the right campsite for you if you’re not into recycling !)
Groups/Large Bookings/Children – sorry, we don’t take groups or large family bookings of more than 5 people – we also have a child : adult ratio that we try to stick to in order to maintain the tranquility that so many of our guests come for…. and so limit the number of under 12’s that we take.
(Please don’t book separately and ‘become’ a group once here as we will not be able to honour your booking).
Radios and Sound-Systems – sorry but these are not welcome at Priory Mill.
Visitors – Sorry but we do not take campers visitors anymore during the summer holiday period or over busy weekends, as it swells our carefully managed numbers and makes the place feel, to us, overly busy. We encourage our campers to meet-up with friends and family in Brecon where there are numerous places for a get together… only a 10 mins walk away.
Campervans – we only take four small campervans (VW sort of size) at a time and we have a specific area for them at the far end of the track (please note that both this area and the garden field are closer to the road than the tent meadows) …. booking is necessary
Caravans and Trailer Tents – sorry but we don’t take caravans or trailer tents at all … not even small ones!
Location – Though not busy, inevitably some noise from the road above the meadow is unavoidable (see map on the “Find Us” page for more info) ….we are only a ten minute walk from town so not in an isolated, remote location.
Phone Charging – although we don’t have hook-up, we do have a free charging area for phones, ipads, battery chargers etc.
We are a Certificated Site (CS) and open from April to September.
You’re welcome to have a Campfire, but using only our supplied firewood/charcoal please. Feel free to bring your own fire-tray if you have one, but if not we can provide those for you to borrow.
Free-range eggs are available (when our hens are in the mood for laying!) Apologies if we’ve run out when you ask …. the girls struggle to keep up with demand during busy periods!
