View Full Version : wild camping plus walk in soutth wales?
Thinking of doing some wild camping and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? I live in newport so would like it to be fairly near preferably with a bit of a scenic walk so i can park/walk/camp and return within a day?
any suggestions would be appreciated!
head to mertha, go up to llwyn-on resevoir. cross the dam. several parking spaces along the road there. can even head up into the forest and there are some clearings next to the road where i pitch up when in the area. good for hammock hanging too if yyou are a swinger like me!
from there. head north up towards the brecon beacons. cut across the pass instead of going all the way to the top. heading easteward and slowly swinging round and heading down south back to pontsticill. fantastic pub there. not the one at the bottom of the hill, one at the top. amazing pub food and roaring fire to dry stuff on. theyve actually just opened a bunk house there and will be renting out mountain bikes soon too.
then you can walk back round to the car after that across the open land. bit boggy but if you skirt round the edge youll be fine.
im in KL airport at the moment but can send you an actual route on google maps if you want one when i get back this week.

You are just down the road from the Wye Valley walk... Now there's a place to spend a day out :)

I'm heading to Wales Monday with the aim of getting out under the clouds Tuesday and Wednesday night, any one fancy it????
From the car park here walk down to the coast I have camped in this area many times
Its a bit special to me
Obviously being Wales it can get a bit damp but still in my top 10 spots
Any one know of any where near Cwmbran or Abergavenny that also wild/ bushcraft camping?? (fires & the like) looking seen some site down towards Neath & Brecon but this is to far as restricted by public transport.
