Join one of OutdoorLads' most popular events  - camping in the walled gardens of a stately home, beside the meandering River Usk set at the foot of the Brecon Beacons. 

Many of you will know and love Penpont but for those who don't it truly is a magical place.

We will be running mountain/ leisure walking, canoeing and potentially mountain biking, and climbing days (subject to interest and leader availability) 

We will have exclusive use of the amazing Penpont campsite set in the gardens of the Penpont estate for THREE nights. .

If you're feeling adventurous, you will have the opportunity to explore the Brecon Beacons with some of the finest views that South Wales has to offer. If you'd like a more sedate weekend, we have plenty of less strenuous activities planned and we'll be within easy travelling distance of the towns of Brecon and Abergavenny. Alternatively you can spend the weekend relaxing within the Penpont Estate: exploring the remarkable buildings, gardens, walled kitchen garden the woodland art, maze, tennis courts, croquet lawns, dower house and the 2000 acre estate that surrounds you!

After dusk we will gather together around a campfire, relax and be merry.

We'll be holding a second event at  Penpont in late summer as well: this will go live later in Spring. 

**Please note this event is very popular with free spirited, seasoned OutdoorLads, and as such the fireside conversation can sometimes be explicit, coupled with late night music and dancing. If this type of party atmosphere may not be for you please consider one of the many other great camping events as an alternative.**

The overall capacity of this event will be 40; however some places have temporarily been reserved as we need the event leaders to book on, so that we can run all the daytime activities!. The capacity will be reset in the next couple of weeks so please book on the reserve if it seems full. 

Campervans: Small campervans are welcome at the site, but very limited in number and so subject to availability. They will be parked separately to the tents in the orchard. They must be pre-booked by messaging the office on support@outdoorlads.com  Unfortunately this site does not accept motorhomes or caravans. 

Dogs: Penpont also welcomes well behaved quiet dogs, but they must be kept under control and with you during your stay on site. There is an additional charge of £6 per dog for the weekend, to be paid in cash on arrival.
