Overview

Located just outside the market town of Rhayader in Powys - the green heart of Wales – sits our gorgeous campsite which embodies the natural beauty of central Wales.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, outside of the Club’s control, the planned refurbishment did not take place over the winter months. We are currently working to resolve the situation and will be improving the Club Site as soon as possible. In the mean time you can now book a pitch online or through the Club’s contact centre to camp on Wyeside Club Site and enjoy all the local area has to offer.

Situated on the banks of the River Wye, this campsite is perfect for spending long afternoons enjoying walking, cycling and fishing.

Our campsite on the River Wye is surrounded by the beautiful ‘Lakeland of Wales’. By day, see scores of red kites at Gigrin Farm, explore endless hiking and biking trails, or go horse trekking from Rhayader. Walk to Elan Valley to appreciate the spectacular scenery, and spend a relaxing afternoon in Llandrindod Wells - a lovely spa town with great shops and restaurants. By night, look up and experience Elan Valley’s captivating starry skies – a designated International Dark Sky Park.

Wyeside comes equipped with laundry facilities and two shower and toilet blocks. The neighbouring Waun Capel Park has a tennis court, all surface basketball/ football pitches and a children’s park. Rhayader town is around a 10 minute walk and has a leisure centre, town museum and plenty of pubs and eateries. 

Only one car per pitch. Visitor Parking is limited, there is a pay and display car park at the leisure centre for 2nd vehicles.

Holiday Homes are available on this site. Please call 024 7647 5328 for more information.

Worth Noting

Due to the site being within the International Dark Sky Park there are none of the usual lighting schemes therefore a torch is considered an essential. Please note that mobile and TV reception are poor – satellite is required.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

Bob the Butcher in Rhayader town sells top quality, local meat and produce. The Pigs Folly make 60 flavours of sausage, using local ingredients. They supply Dexter beef, Goats produce, Jams, Home Cooked Pies and Dairy Free and Gluten Free Produce.

We arrived at the Wyeside campsite we were welcomed by Chris and Diane and they were both friendly. They showed us to our pitch which had a nice view of the river. As time went on the site got full and they had an electric box next to our awning. So there was cables running across our awning door and an easy trip hazard for a 3 year old and an adult at night. All the electric pitches are squashed up together and we had a moterhome put right in front of us then I had no where to park the car, not very well organised. The manger Wendy was so friendly, she could not do enough for us. The facilities were ok the electric showers are brilliant for showering kids, so please keep them and great that the shower head is moveable. Also liked the step, that seperates the shower, as you can get dry easier. Be interesting what they are like after the makeover. The washing up facilities are ok but don�t get cleaned every day, so felt you needed to clean them yourself. The price of the campsite is expensive, when they know it�s waiting on a refurb and not everything is perfect.

This site is different in a delightfully quirky way.

This review is for Wyeside Campsite

This site is different in a delightfully quirky way. You can camp in a hard standing section, a huge flat well drained field or a small section in between. Something to suit everyone. The field reminded me of a good old fashioned traditional camping experience. Tents, vans, groups and lone campers all mingling or doing their own thing flanked by the river Wye. Yes there are rules about noise at night but this is common courtesy. The location is outstanding. Easy walk to shops, pubs, take always etc. (Recommend the pizza from Turkish Delight in town.) Further walk to Elan valley. Play areas, forest walks adjacent and much much more. People wanting to celebrate into the early hours can easily find an idyllic spot off site to do so.. The wardens were amazing. Very friendly, and good humoured. Lovely to see children out playing and enjoying the freedom and fresh air. Doggy paradise too. Yes, some road noise but settles at night. I will be back as often as possible.

Just had a long weekend at Wyeside.

This review is for Wyeside Campsite

Just had a long weekend at Wyeside. Very friendly and helpful wardens on hand on arrival who helped us pitch up. Some of the site facilities are a little tired looking, although perfectly clean and usable. I understand that the planned refurbishment did not go ahead due to issues with planning consent. Plans have been resubmitted and hopefully will be approved this time, I have no doubt that this site will be top notch when updated. The hardstanding area is very close to the busy road which cannot be helped due to the land available, but if you can switch off from the road noise (sitting by the lovely river with a glass of wine helps!) then it's no problem. I understand that more electric hook ups are planned for the grass field which will be a huge bonus. The area is fabulous, an easy 10 minute walk into the lovely small town, and the surrounding countryside and the Elan Valley for walkers, bikers or just to sit down and enjoy is just stunning. Would definitely recommend as long as visitors are aware the site may not (yet) be up to the usual high standard of club sites (but it will be soon). Will definitely visit again.
