General

  • Family-friendly site 15 minutes' drive from Builth Wells
  • Elan Valley and Brecon Beacons within a half-hour drive
  • On the banks of the River Irfon for fishing and wild swimming

There are many things that draw people to seek out riverside spots for their hols – you may fancy a bit of fishing, or perhaps you’ve got an eye on the scenic picnic potential, or maybe you secretly (or not so secretly) just yearn to get in for a wild swim…

Whichever of the above you’ve got in mind matters not, for they’re all covered at Powys site Riverside Caravan and Camping Park, in little Llangammarch Wells and 15 minutes’ drive from the ancient market town of Builth Wells. As the name intimates, this four-acre park is indeed on the riverside – the banks of the Irfon river, to be more specific. Fishing is allowed on site for those clutching the correct permit, and there’s direct access to the water for those who want to cool their feet with a tentative paddle or take the plunge for a full-on swim.

There’s plenty of space for open-air eats too, either a picnic or a cookout at the barbecue area; covered gazebos have also been set up just in case the weather isn’t amenable (and they’re also piled high with handy things like games of giant Jenga, footballs, hula hoops and an electricity supply for recharging your gadgets).

Time out in the open air might include watching over the kids at the playground, taking the dog for a walk along the riverbank from the village or around one of the other excellent dog-walking spots locally (there’s a washing machine on site to deal with any muddy pawprints they leave you with) or ambling over to the local pub, 10 minutes’ stroll away. Being in a dark sky area, there's often also some fab stargazing to be had by night.

    beautiful setting, cradled in the Brecon Beacons, the sun rising a striking us in the morning and sitting outside and watching the sun go down at the end of the day. The river running alongside, green, dark and sparkling.
    Friendly greeting, easy facilities, scrupulously clean shower and wc area.

Thank you for your beautiful description. We are very lucky that we can enjoy the sun from rising through to sunset. Glad you appreciated it.

  • Liked: 

    Lovely site with lovely welcoming owners, really enjoyed our stay in the pod with our children, and for the time of year they stay quite warm at night which made it all the more cosy. The skies at night were beautiful to see they were lit up with stars eveywhere you looked. They have all the facilities you need for a camping trip in a caravan or tent, and even a river nearby you can easily access from across the campsite for a paddle. We would like to come back with our tent next time. The pitches looked very level and the whole pitching field was so well maintained. It was well looked after and you can see a lot of love has gone into the campsite. We visited Elan Valley during our stay and its a fab place to take the kids beautiful scenery and things to see as well as a lovely play area, plenty of picnic spots, gift shop and a cafe for refreshments and food. We also had a meal in The Fountain pub in Builth Wells and the food was delicious.

Milky Way heaven23/09/2020

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We were on a non electric tent pitch in an area behind the main campsite which was lovely & quite and away from everyone. We paid £15 for the fire pit which was well worth the extra money - roasting marshmallows and gazing at the Milky Way overhead - utterly amazing. Campsite was very quite for us which we loved although I was told its get a bit noisier at weekends with families playing games on the green. There is an outside undercovered area which hosts a freezer to refreeze your freezer blocks, and a power point if you need to recharge your phone or dry your hair. Shower block and toilets were extremely clean and I have no problem paying 50p for a hot shower. Hosts are truly lovely and friendly and will guide you on walks around the area. Pub is few minutes walk away but we loved BBQ'ing and making the most of the night sky so we didn't go.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really - just bear in mind there are sheep all round the perimeter of the campsite and dogs need to be kept on a lead.

From the manager...

Thank you, so glad you enjoyed the night sky. Just to add that the fire pit hire includes 2 netted bags of wood, (kindling and hard wood).

Local attractions

This part of the world has many enticing options for folk who like a good walk or bike ride on their hols: as well as local riverside paths, you might also like to consider setting off for the Elan Valley (half an hour’s drive) to ramble by lakes and waterfalls, or aim south to the trails of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

For other outdoorsy days, there’s a fine golf course in Builth Wells (15 minutes) and the chance to see big birds take flight at the Red Kite Feeding Station in Rhyader (half an hour). The Brecon Mountain Railway (an hour) is a great choice for those who’d like to see the scenery at slow pace, and the Dolaucothi Roman gold mines likewise for folk intrigued by what lies beneath their feet.

There’s a lot going on throughout the year in this area too – time your trip cleverly to tie in with the Hay-on-Wye Book Festival (45 minutes), the parades of fine beasts at the Royal Welsh Show (20 minutes) or the famed World Bog Snorkelling Championships (10 minutes).
