About Dinefwr BothyNestled at the heart of the Dinefwr Estate near wildlife-filled woodland, this rustic bothy is the perfect bolthole for walkers exploring the Brecon Beacons.
Sitting in a field on a working farm on the vast Dinefwr Estate, with its deer park and Nature Reserve, you’ll find this simple little bothy on the walking route to Dinefwr Castle. When you stay, you’ll be at the western tip of the Brecon Beacons National Park, so there are glorious walks all around to enjoy.
A cosy and basic alternative to camping, step inside this open plan, one-room bothy and you’ll find high ceilings with exposed timber beams and gorgeous arched windows set into characterful walls of local stone. There’s one double bed platform and then six separate single sleeping platforms too. There’s also a toilet and basin, and a small kitchen unit with a sink. Bothy life is pared back, offering simple pleasures, so you’re essentially ‘camping withing walls’ but the incredible setting should have you raring to get out there and head off exploring each morning.
Stroll from the bothy doors and discover the Dinefwr parkland which is home to the iconic White Park Cattle who have been in the area since 920AD. There’s also the deer park, Newtown House with its tea room, the lake and boardwalk and also miles of trails across the estate to wander. Or hike up to the ruined Dinefwr Castle (owned by Cadw) and enjoy the amazing views. You’re also close to Llandeilo, a charming little town where you’ll find delis, pubs and cafes as well as a baker, greengrocer and butcher to stock up on anything you might need.
Make the most of your location on the western fringes of the Brecon Beacons National Park with walking opportunities all around. And, if you’re a fan of mountain walking then heading to the summit of Pen y Fan should definitely be on your list. Don’t miss the incredible Henrhyd Falls either (Sgwd Henryhd) on the Nant Llech river, the highest waterfall in the National Park. There are also pretty pubs to cosy up in or linger over a home-cooked meal. The wonderful Aberglasney Gardens is a must for garden lovers and where you’ll find more than 10 acres of gardens and a unique Elizabethan cloister garden.
