Overview

A beautiful site well off the beaten track This site is in a beautiful quiet country location, well off the beaten track, but worth the effort getting there for the views. Fiona, the owner, is very friendly and helpful, especially with regard to 'managing' our motorhome. About 6 miles from the village of Llanfair Caereinion where basic shopping facilities are available - most people would need to drive as the roads are quite hilly. Welshpool is a further 12 miles - worth a visit to see Powis Castle. For train enthusiasts the Welshpool and Llanfair Railway (W&LR) runs between the two towns - a delightful 'little train of Wales'. Unfortunately we found the facilities were not up to scratch on our visit (hopefully only a blip) with the toilets not flushing properly and the unisex shower not draining quickly enough (it overflowed). Given that the price is at the top end of the scale (�16 a night - almost the same as a full CC or CCC site) we would have hoped for better.

This is a lovely, well set-up and well cared for CS.

This review is for Gwaenynog

This is a lovely, well set-up and well cared for CS. The slightly sloping field looks across to great views of the hills. (The best views are from the top of the field, so a sojourn without EHU is best, as the hookups are on the lower side of the field). The toilet and shower facilities are modern and kept very clean. There is even a good water pressure at the drinking water tap (unusual in Mid-Wales in our experience!) There are some good local walks, particularly the Owen Glndwr Way and the Ann Griffiths walk, which go either side of the River Vrynwy through Dolanog. The spectacular Lake Vrnwy is about 20 minutes drive away. Above all, the great thing about this area is that it has beautiful scenery, but is much less visited than the honeypots of Snowdonia. Driving one evening to visit friends who live some 12 miles away we passed just two other vehicles. The owners have produced some excellent local information, which they email you when you book. However, particularly if you are towing, do follow their route recommendations carefully, as many roads here are pretty narrow. The recommended final approach needs some care anyway. Lovely site to which we hope to return soon.

We stayed at this site for 10 days.

This review is for Gwaenynog

We stayed at this site for 10 days. The journey was ok but there were some steep points, and single track roads. On arrival we were met by Fiona. She was lovely and extremely helpful. There were two brand new showers and a new toilet. There were also two other toilets which also housed the washing up facility. We had a very relaxed week. Stunning views, and surrounded by sheep. There was no noise. Our dog was allowed off lead in the fenced camping area. We would definitely recommend a visit to Lake Vyrnwy, which was 20 miles away and completely free with amazing views. Thank you Fiona and Norman for a wonderful stay.
