Campsites in Mid Wales for an off the beaten path break

Looking for campsites in Mid Wales? You might be alone… This is a lesser-travelled region compared with the country’s more renowned west and north, and it’s also much more sparsely populated – despite covering more than a third of the nation’s total area, it’s home to a teeny-weeny fifteenth of the population. 

But it’s just as scenic as it is sizeable, with the remote Cambrian Mountains and the Ceredigion coast a few of the must-visit areas to amble around.

Because of the region’s breadth, reaching from Snowdonia in the north to the Brecon Beacons in the south, and from the Irish Sea in the west to the English border in the east, it can be tricky to pick which parts of it to travel when planning a hol at campsites, glampsites or caravan parks in Mid Wales. 

Here’s a guide to get you going with that.

Where to settle in while camping in Mid Wales

If you’re after remoteness, rove around the Cambrian Mountains. They may not tower over the terrain – the highest peak is the 752-metre Pumlumon Fawr – but they have a middle-of-nowhere feel that’s really rather compelling.

If a busier base is more your sort of thing, check out the university town of Aberystwyth over by the seaside in the west. You can choose from static caravans in coastal mid-Wales if you’re not up for toting a tent along on your trip – the rentals at these sorts of resorts tend to have fully equipped kitchens and come with bedding as an added bonus.

In England and fancy a quick trip across the border? Venture to the valleys around the Usk, Severn and Wye rivers or wander to a caravan park near Welshpool for easy access to cracking cultural sights like the National Trust’s Powis Castle and Garden.

More destinations to dawdle to when camping in Mid Wales

Mid Wales may be rural, but it’s far from empty. Stroll to Strata Florida Abbey right by Pontrhydfendigaid for a rundown of the region’s religious history or make a beeline for the seaside to stroll around sweet villages like Aberaeron.

You could also crack on towards a caravan park near Welshpool’s Georgian town centre for hols ambling next to canals, admiring historic castles and riding on heritage railways. Birders might want to make a pilgrimage to Cors Dyfi, meanwhile, to get a glimpse of the ospreys that are often sighted hereabouts.

Other spots to see when camping in Mid Wales are more on the nature-based end of the sightseeing spectrum, including the Devil's Bridge waterfall near Aberystwyth and the Ynyslas dunes by Borth. These border Cardigan Bay and the Dyfi Estuary, so you can do a bit of bottlenose dolphin-spotting while in the area.

Walkers should get on the Glyndwr’s Way and tramp 135 miles through Mid Wales on this long-distance footpath between Knighton and Welshpool, passing by spectacular scenery made up of moorland, farms and forests.

For no-frills thrills, organise a whole hol around the numerous adventures available when camping in Mid Wales. Float down the River Teifi in an inflatable tube, go rock climbing in Cardigan, try quad biking in Llangrannog or canoe at the coast around Ceredigion.

Seeking a spacation…?

For somewhere secluded and scenic – but with a decent dose of decadence chucked in for good measure – go glamping in mid-Wales with hot tub access.

If a quiet stay is what you’re after but you’d rather swap swanky amenities for active pursuits, why not wangle a bit of angling time at a river or lakeside park with chances to fish on base and nearby?

When a group getaway is on the cards, have a gander at bunkhouses with large capacities, or take a little looksee at camping or caravan sites in Mid Wales that welcome large travelling tribes of the same gender (ideal for all those stag and hen dos you need to plan).
