Penpont is one of OutdoorLads most popular events -and so this year we will be visiting Penpont for a second weekend in the late Summer!

Many of you will know and love Penpont but for those who don't it truly is a magical place. Camping in the walled gardens of a stately home, beside the meandering River Usk set at the foot of the Brecon Beacons.

We will be running mountain walking and canoeing on this event as well as some beautiful day walks

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 available and we'll be within easy travelling distance of the towns of Brecon and Abergavenny. Altertnatively you can spend the weekend relaxing within the Penpont Estate: exploring the remarkable buildings, gardens, the woodland art, hedge maze, tennis courts, croquet lawns, dower house and the 2000 acre estate that surrounds you! As it is the end of the summer the river should be relatively warm to swim in.

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

Don't forget that we'll also be visiting Penpont over the first May bank holiday: see here for details of the Spring Penpont 2020 event. 

Campervans (NOW FULLY BOOKED): Small campervans are welcome at the site, but limited to two in number and so subject to availability. They must be pre-booked with the OutdoorLads office on and there will be an additional charge. 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 £4 per dog for the weekend, to be paid in cash on arrival.
