A wonderfully secluded campsite hidden in the Welsh hills.
Rhandirmwyn (pronounced ran-dee-mo-n) Club campsite lies just outside the Brecon Beacons National Park. The name means ‘Valley of the minerals’ and is a lead mining area in the Towy Valley.
The campsite is situated in the middle of the valley and the lively River Towy run alongside it. The campsite is spacious and well set out with excellent facilities. Surrounded by hills and trees it’s ideal for families or individuals interested in walking, cycling or just relaxing.
There are many beautiful hill and river walks within easy reach of this campsite. The Cambrian Way passes through the edge of the site. The circular all-ability access trail in Cwmrhaeadr Forest, one-and-a-half miles from the campsite is perfect for cyclists. There are two nice pubs in the village, your reward for completing the steep climb up to them!
Head south from the campsite to the Usk reservoir in the National Park. An eight-mile trail wends its way around the shore. Fishing is available here too. The nearby Glasfyndd Forest also has great walking and cycling tracks.
Llyn Brianne reservoir is also worth a visit. The road around the reservoir has some breathtaking views. Also visit the subterreanean world of the National Showcaves Centre for Wales. As well as the caves you can visit the dinosaur park, shire horse centre and the Iron Age village. The 13th century hillside Carreg Cenne Castle is south of the campsite near the village of Trapp.
Don’t miss a visit to the RSPB Dinas Nature Reserve where you can spot red kites. You can see more red kites as well as ravens and buzzards at Gigrin Farm Bird reserve in the market town of Rhayader.

We have been visiting the campsite for
the last four or five years, but have seen
it flourish in the past few years under the
conscientious and meticulous care of the
wardens, Barry and Wendy.
This year they have been joined by
Assistant Wardens, Alan and Sue, who
clearly share their commitment to
ensuring that this is one of the most
well-kept, efficient (but far from officious),
friendly and welcoming sites we have
visited in the UK and Europe.
We have previously only visited for
weekends or for the odd night, but,
loving the site and the area as we do,
this year we decided to spend a week
there in early August. Although the
weather the previous week had been
atrocious, when we arrived, the site was
far from weather-beaten, somehow the
team had worked their magic to ensure
that the pitches were still perfectly
maintained and comfortable.
During the week we came to understand
just how this site always appears so well
cared for, the team simply do not stop.
No sooner than one job has been
completed they seem to identify another,
yet they were always cheerful, helpful
and friendly when we interrupted them to
ask a question or to seek advice about
The site is perfect for anyone, from
families with young children to those at
the other end of the age spectrum happy
to enjoy the peace and the views. And
for anyone keen on walking, the area is
idyllic. It is off the beaten track, but that
only adds to its appeal as far as we are
The ambience on the site ensured that
we had a wonderful, relaxing week and
I have no doubt whatsoever that the
creation of such an ambience is
entirely due to the way in which the
site is managed. Thank you very much
Barry, Wendy, Alan and Sue, I hope we
will see you all there again next year.

Stayed this time for nearly two weeks. Not long enough!
Even though the weather has been 'interesting', Barry, Wendy and the team have kept the site in fantastic condition - quite a challenge!
Rhandirmwyn is a lovely place, surrounded by gorgeousness. Turn right for Llyn Brianne, the famous reservoir, amazing forests and Abergwesyn. Turn left for Cwm Rhaeadr, the waterfall walk and technical mountain bike trails. Within easy reach of Llandeilo and Lampeter, both lovely towns and not too far from the famous costal town of Aberaeron and the first class dolphin watching beaches of New Quay.
If you don't want to drive you don't have to. Provisions are available locally from the site shop and from a small shop attached to the Royal Oak which is in easy walking distance. You can be sure of a warm welcome at the Towy Bridge too (slightly further but a lovely walk). The food served is very acceptable at both hostelries, so you don't even have to cook!
When you visit Rhandirmwyn, Barry and Wendy will give you the warmest of welcomes. Enjoy!

The staff were very friendly and welcoming, discussing our pitch options so we were happy where we were placed, which we were, right next to the lovely river Towy. The site is very peaceful and secluded, but with a one way entry and exit policy to due to the narrow approach road. We have an 8 metre plus motorhome and there were no issues getting in and out for us, so you need not worry about this aspect.
There is a small shop on site selling basics and maps are available for the local area, with the Yellow Atlas version being perfect for local footpath walks.
There are 2 local pubs, both excellent, one at the top of a 1/2 km uphill walk and one after a nice but tricky walk along the river bank, again excellent, and we visited this one ( Towy Bridge Inn ) on foot and by bike which is no more than 1.5 miles away.
All in all a very relaxing 3 days were spent at the site and thanks to Barry and his staff, I can highly recommend a visit, enjoy.

“Yet another fabulous weeks holiday at this superb site. Friendly welcome from the wardens who maintain the site to a remarkable standard. The scenery is absolutely stunning and there are some fabulous walks along the river Towy in both directions as well as some more strenuous ones.
Can highly recommend this site for anybody who appreciates nature and beautiful scenery. We will definitely be returning.”
