Stayed in the car park nearest the toilet block on 20/09/20. 20p charge to use the facilities, and they were locked shut by 2100 until at least 0730 when we left.

Lovely peaceful spot.
Adults and children swimming in the river.
Nice gentle 15 mins walk into town and some lovely llanfaes ice-cream.
Like most powys car parks it is free to overnight 1 night in 7.
Great idea brings much needed economy to town.
Will definitely stay there again.

Stayed one night over August BH weekend. Toilet block was short walk away and appeared like it might need 20p coins inserting but doors were open anyhow. We got in again later just as the gent was locking them up for the night.

Children appreciated the playground (slightly reduced kit due to CV19).

Parking meter only takes coins (no other options) for those staying beyond 0800 the following morning.

Still free overnight. Plenty of walks if you have a dogs. Steady walk into the town. Children’s play area adjacent. Few locals swim in the river which I must admit looked inviting. Plenty of room. Police drove round in the evening and early morning.

After visiting the Brecon Show we drove here for the night. Lovely area and facilities as mentioned in previous posts. We dont wiild camp very often but really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely walk into Brecon. There were about 10 other motorhomes parked up and still plenty of room. Lovely views of river if you can get a space near the river but there are trees that do block the view. There is a cafe and penny arcade at the end of the carpark. There is a second carpark further up the road. Will definitely stay here again.

To be clear, you can stay in any car park in Brecon 6pm - 8am for free. Otherwise the charges on the board apply. Most MH's pay the car/small vehicle rate - even though technically over 3 tons! The key is be unobtrusive and don't take the mickey (unlike one we saw taking three car parking spaces with tables and chairs set out in the middle of the day on the water front)! The quietest is the promenade parking - either next to the river or in the park a little further up in the road.

Slightly sloping but nothing major. the WC as a little walk to get to on the other side of the car park . price to use 20p.theres a nice little cafe and paddle boat hire right next to the parking area.there was about 7 MH there the night we stayed.can get busy throughout the day but well worth it.nice dog walks and cycle rides along the river.pity about the weather rained all day.

A great place to stop overnight. Well maintained grounds surrounding and riverside walks with plenty of room for dog walking.
A very popular stop over on weekends, with around a dozen motorhomes & campervans overnighting when we were there.
A short walk from the town centre along a well maintained riverside trail.
Powys Council deserve recognition for their great welcome for motorhome users. a view that other councils would do well to emulate.

Had a great stop over here very good for our little dog and handy for town, we parked on big car park by cafe and boating but moved to the smaller car park by toilets which was quieter there were 3 motorhomes here parked on flat grass just through gate, would definitely use again well done Powys council for this service.

Loved our stop here. Great location, as other reviews said, and views over to mountains across the river were pretty darn good. Very peaceful night. Definitely would go back. Shame Brecon itself is a bit down on it's luck. We couldn't find a decent pub to eat at so settled for takeaways.

Nothing to say other than i agree with all previous comments. My only comment is on the overnight charges which seem to differ in the reviews. The wording on the sign is a little confusing in that it looks like MHs are free but, lower down on the sign it refers to vehicles over 3t being chargeable at £6.30. However, this is for commercial vehicles over 3t. We weren’t convinced on this so paid the £6.30 just in case (well worth it so we didn’t really mind) but rang the Council the following morning for clarification and future reference and were told there is no overnight charge for MHs of any weight. Well done Powys!!

Just arrived and paid £3.20 for 4 hrs to takes us to 6pm. Not sure about free for motorhomes as all overnight fees state £6.30. Lovely location next to the river, children's play park, boating on the river with cafe and arcade. Short walk into Brecon town.

Young couple with 2 dogs. We stayed for 1 night in this car park, we had 3 other vans as neighbours. Great location just outside of Brecon and free to stay from 6pm to 8am - we paid an extra £1.30 to stay until 10am. As with many car parks in Brecon, the signs indicate that motorhomes/campervans are able to stay 1 night in 7. There is a large park right next to the car park, ideal for dog walking and provides bags and plenty of bins. The leisure centre in Brecon (approx 10 mins from this car park) also allows you to use the showers for £2, great alternative to having to go on a campsite.

Lovely and quiet, lots of space even though there were 5 other MH's & camper vans, good walks long or short. Perfect overnight sleeping stop on arriving Wales before exploring the beacons the following day. Toilets are along the path in the next parking area from the boathouse & are 20p to gain access. very clean. Great for dog owners.
Would visit again.

Stayed here for one night, arriving at 21:00. It was very quiet with just one M/H and one campervan parked up, The views and sounds of the river Usk were exceptional, as were the walks. Very quiet night with first activity about 08:45 when the bins were being emptied and the boathouse was being opened up. It is very cheap to park for the day and cost £3.20 from 08:00 until 18:00 and its free from 18:00 until 06:00. Definitely will stay there again soon.

Riverside car park, fairly level with easy walk into town. Cafe on site but toilets on adjacent playing fields locked when we visited. Good dog walking along river. Some noise from local youths caused one van to move to other part of car park but went quiet before too late. Free to park from 6pm to 8am, easy to get an all day ticket for longer stays. Great overnight spit.

Like most Welsh car parks, it is possible to stay overnight in you motorhome. This is a nice riverside car park with a café adjacent.
The usual lads came around at dusk with their cars but were quiet enough except when they left later in the evening.
Still, a nice night and a morning stroll along the river chatting to some dog walkers made a good start to the day.

Visited this spot quite a few times now and love it! A level carpark with great walks alongside the river and the surrounding countryside (can be a little rough in places but well worth the effort). Easy walk into the town area with shops, restaurants and pubs (I recommend the 'Brecon Tap'). The Cathedral is also very close and worth a visit. There is a cafe and boat hire in the carpark (closed during the winter) and there are refurbished public toilets in the adjacent parking area which are closed overnight. Overnight parking for motorhomes is free between 6pm and 8am, normal charges apply outside of these hours. The "No Camping" sign is for tents, motorhomes and campervans are fine.
