Bel endroit pour toute la nuit. Super parking si vous prévoyez de faire de la randonnée à Pen-y-fan. Pas trop de trafic la nuit. Un ciel magnifique la nuit avec beaucoup d'étoiles grâce au parc national de Brecon Beacon étant une zone sans lumière.

Nice place by for over night.
Great parking area if you're planning on hiking Pen-y-fan.
Not too much traffic at night.
Great skies at nighttime lots of stars thanks to Brecon Beacon national park being a no lights zone.

Schöner Ort für zu ubernachten. Toller Parkplatz, wenn Sie Pen-y-Fan wandern möchten. Nachts nicht zu viel Verkehr. Toller Himmel bei Nacht, viele Sterne dank des Brecon Beacon Nationalparks, der keine Lichtzone ist.

    stayed last night (Saturday) as a short walk for one of Pen Y Fan start points, far enough from main road to not notice road noise, no bins etc, stunning views, filled up quickly on Sunday, i shall stay tonight before heading off on my wanders

    Stayed one night . All ok, others who use it were a bit noisy. Lovely view of the mist rising. Now going to attempt a walk. But at the end of the day it was free!

    I stayed here for one night & have had the best time. There’s a beautiful view of the valley which we watched whilst sitting on the top of our van. Free parking but no toilets, however there is a car park closer down the road if need be. You can hear the road but it definitely got quieter during the night so would recommend, especially if you want to hike Pen Y fan as it’s in walking distance!

    lovely views and lots of parking space, there are much more level areas very close by. so didn't use this one.

    Large lay by with a nice view. The road was quiet at night and noticeable in the AM but wasn’t too loud. Quite a bit of litter, take your litter home.
