Tir Abbey Camping

Tir Abbey Farm, Alltwen, Pontardawe, United Kingdom

Tir Abbey is a small farm situated on top of the Drummau mountain above the Swansea Valley with fantastic panoramic views. The site overlooks the villages of Cimla, Bryncoch, Rhos, Alltwen, as well as Pontardawe and Neath town itself but as the site is on a plateau the site cannot be seen by the villages. Although the farm itself is run as a smallholding, the camp is completely private as it is only adjoined by farm fields and the only road to it is owned by us. So if you are looking for a place just to chill out, relax and unwind, this is the place to be. There is no traffic noise here, just peace and privacy. This is not the place for loud music (hence no car radios allowed). There are no play areas, only open fields and an amazing landscape.
This is a ‘back to nature’ camping holiday as the only facilities are two compost toilets (with solar lights), 2 flush toilets and one shower,also water tap (which is regularly tested). Sorry – there are no electric hook-ups. There are no shops for 3 miles, eggs from our own hens and ducks can be bought from the farmhouse. We have plenty of wildlife up here so it is the ideal retreat for artists, birdwatchers, and people who just love the countryside. Dogs are allowed as long as they are kept on a lead at all times and their toiletries taken care of.

We allow (and cater for) campfires as long as they are kept directly off the grass so as not to scorch it and are not left unattended (we wouldn’t like to be the cause of a mountain fire!).

    Stayed here in July 2016, a real mountain top location with amazing views and woodland/wildlife walks on the doorstep. Basic but clean facilities, closest town is Pontardawe approx. 3 miles which has lots of lovely independent traders on the main street.
