The ‘Lone Wolf’ Campsite

 

The ‘Lone Wolf’ campsite is a privately owned niche woodland site located just outside Aberdulais in South Wales. There is a 20 acre natural deciduous woodland available for pre-booked camping.

 

The emphasis here is on peace and quiet, back to basics. There’s nothing fancy here. People have been coming since 1999 because it’s unusual, different, eccentric perhaps and informal.

 

If you want a camp site where you can play stereo’s, find a clubhouse, have shops on site etc then you are most definitely in the wrong place! There’s plenty to choose from, but this place is not the right one for you.

 

The site has been featured in several books and numerous press articles over the years. They were all very complimentary but did result in rather more customers, attention and resource demands than we wanted.

 

We had a short closure in 2012 but are now accepting campers again on a slightly smaller scale and with a little less in the way of facilities.

 

Please be aware that the site is strictly advanced bookings only, don’t just turn up. We only take limited numbers here.

 

What’s on site?

20 acres of woodland. The river Dulais borders the west side of the woods and part of the old single track Neath & Brecon railway borders the east. You cannot take vehicles into the woodland. You can park near the gate and you walk in from there. You probably wouldn’t need to walk more than 100-200 metres to find suitable camping spots but it’s worth thinking seriously about what you really need to have with you. Small camp fires are fine*, but strictly no air weapons, bows or trapping. Any kind of tents are welcome together with hammocks, tarps. We ask people to leave the place clean and tidy.

Facilities – We have male and female toilets (portaloo type), free hot shower, kitchen and wash room. You will be a 3 to 4 minute walk from the woodland to the facilities dependant on precisely where you choose to set up camp.
