Welcome to campfires burning....

The Campfires burning website has come about because of a lack of info about campsites that let you have fires. Not so long time since, you could have fires at loads of sites, now they seem to have vanished.

We aim to provide the campfire camper with usefull information about sites that allow some form of campfire. We have searched the internet for sites, primarily in the UK for now, that permit fires. Although not every potential site is listed, if you do know of any; anywhere in the world, please send me an email and i can add it to the site.

We are currently putting together a list of sites from all over the world, so if you know of any, please drop us an email so we can add them to the site.

If you intend visiting one of our listed sites, please check with them first and mention to them that you found them on campfiresburning.org.

  • About site:

Lower Porthamel is an idyllic organic farm between Hay on Wye and Brecon. Camp in the orchard at our working farm in the beautiful Wye Valley. The campsite has twenty pitches. Facilities include a loo block with hot showers, and a wash room. Children are welcome from any age, and we have a small children's play area. Walk our nature trail through the farm's fields, down the abandoned old mid Wales railway line and along the banks of the River Llynfi, which is home to otters, badgers and kingfishers. Relax in the evening with a campfire. Dogs are very welcome [with well trained owners]. There are some good walks from the site. Browse around the small market town of Talgarth. Good access to the Brecon Beacons.
