The Cottage of the Charcoal Burners (Ninfa)  was built about 300 years ago on the old parish road over the Blorenge to Blaenavon.

Twenty years ago we converted the old barn into a 6-bedded bunkhouse. More recently we started the campsite with widely separated pitches on terraces scattered across the mountainside.

Middle Ninfa Farm is located just two miles from the historic market town of Abergavenny.  It is reached by a steep, winding tarmaced road from Llanfoist, crossing the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal which once served the iron works of Clydach Gorge and Pwll Ddu. The 23 acre farm lies in a historic and beautiful landscape, within the Brecon Beacons National Park on the edge of the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape  World Heritage Site.

The small unspoilt campsite is rated number three in the UK by the Tiny Campsite Guide. The site is also featured in the Guardian newspaper’s guide to the best 100 camping sites (2011).

This is excellent walking country and there are fine views over the Usk Valley of the Skirrid and rural Monmouthshire.The upper third of the land, which abuts the Woodland Trust owned Punchbowl, has been planted to broadleaf woodland.  In May this is a sea of bluebells. There is also an acre of withy beds, orchards, vegetable garden, grazing for horses and sheep, ducks, bees and a tennis/croquet court.

Read a recent review of the area and our site by some recent happy campers to find out all we, and the local area, has to offer!

We also run a series of three day workshops during which you will learn how to build a traditional coracle or willow structure. For full details please click here.
