GRAWEN CARAVAN & CAMPING PARK

Offering best of both Worlds, Scenic and Historic.


About Us

A warm welcome awaits you..

Grawen is situated at the foot of the southern ridges of the Brecon Beacons' highest hills and some of the most appealing walking country in the land, a fantastic location close to historic towns, Brecon Beacons and the Waterfall country.

We are a family run, 3* camping park and want to make your stay an enjoyable one. Our site is perfect for families, couples, walkers and cyclists who either want to relax, enjoy or discover the beautiful views of the countryside.

We are also pleased to accommodate students on their expeditions for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

There are lots of things to do in our area where you can use the park as a base. Within a few minutes walk from the site is a beautiful reservoir which is perfect for an evening stroll.

Just 1.5 miles south of the site is our local village Cefn Coed, where you will be able to find convenience stores, pubs, takeaways and much more.

Pre-booking is not always necessary but may be advisable at peak times especially if wanting to book with an electric hook up, particularly Bank Holidays.
