Henstent Park: Tent area

General

  • Spectacularly scenic riverside park in the Tanat Valley
  • Next to a 120-acre mountain biking park, plus Lake Bala 13 miles away
  • Two dog-friendly pubs within walking distance

Cor. Have a look at this site’s setting: parked alongside the Tanat river and surrounded by peaks in the spectacularly scenic Tanat Valley in mid Wales’ Berwyn Mountains, it’s right near the pretty village of Llangynog, where the Tanat and Eirth rivers meet.

And there’s more: right on the edge of Snowdonia National Park, Henstent Park’s surrounds are not only scenic but they're next door to a huge 120-acre mountain bike park and also handily set for jaunts to the market towns of Welshpool and Oswestry, plus the Vyrnwy and Bala lakes.

The smashing views are 360 here – at every turn you’ll see grass, trees and mountains – and as the site’s bordered by a river, there’s the option to have a go at fishing nearby. This is a smashing site for walkers too: several hiking trails lead directly from the site and it’s a three-hour trek (or a 20-minute drive) up to Wales’ highest waterfall, Pistyll Rhaeadr. A gated dog walk runs alongside the riverbank (and two dog-friendly pubs are within easy walking distance).

The bathroom block – with free hot showers – has been hailed by previous guests as immaculate and spotless.

    Henstent is a lovely well kept site, great facilities and the owners are very helpful and friendly. They gave great advice on local walks and were sure to check in to make sure everything was all good.

    The site is within walking distance of the local pub which serves decent pub grub and the nearest shop was a couple miles up the road.

    If you want a relaxing place to stay with beautiful mountain views you couldn't do better.

    Beautiful spot right next to the river. Wales' highest waterfall is very nearby. The local villages have good pubs and etaeries and it's only just over half an hour from the coast. The best thing about Henstent though is the people that run it. They are great - really helpful and happy to greet you on arrival.

Local attractions

Several walks lead directly from the site, and you can lace up your boots, pack up a picnic and hike the eight miles up to Wales’ highest waterfall, Pistyll Rhaeadr if you’re feeling particularly energised.

Other outdoorsy pursuits within easy reach include horse riding, fishing and cycling… And as the site is right near Llangynog village, you’re also well placed for challenging and spectacularly scenic bike rides around the Milltir Cerrig mountain pass along the B4391, which runs between Llan Ffestiniog and Llanfyllin.

For those who take their mountain biking seriously, Henstent Park is a five-minute pedal from a popular mountain biking park. Set across 120 acres of private woodland, the park’s got an excellent uplift, which means adventurers can save all their energy for tackling the fast and flowy trails down the wooded and rocky slopes.

If you fancy checking out the area’s lakes, the route over the mountain to Bala – 90 minutes’ bike ride or 25 minutes by car – is a highly scenic one, and at the end you’ll be greeted by lots of watery sports such as canoeing, windsurfing and whitewater rafting, or climbing, hiking, cycling, abseiling, archery and campcraft if you’d prefer to stay dry. Lake Vwrnwy is an easy half hour away.

Must see

  • Powis Castle & Garden (15.5 miles)
  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (24.9 miles)
  • CADW - Harlech Castle (29.8 miles)

National Trust
