Penrhosmawr Holidays: Nice evening for a barbecue

General

  • Farmstead site just outside the south edge of Snowdonia National Park
  • Three miles from Machynlleth and 30 mins' drive from Aberdyfi beach
  • Trees to climb, streams to paddle in and woodlands to explore

If you’re seeking an escape from urban life, Penrhosmawr Holidays, a scenic family-friendly site on a working farmstead three miles from Machynlleth, might be just what you need.

Penrhosmawr is a top spot for a return to nature: the site is less than 10 minutes’ drive from the edge of Snowdonia National Park, where you can hike, walk and cycle, have a go at loads of watersports, toss out a line at one of the fishing sites, or try out some more high-octane outdoor activities, like abseiling, canyoning and ziplining.

You won’t be lacking in nature back on site either – the farm has plenty of trees for kids to climb, streams to paddle in and acres of paths and woodlands to wander around. You can take it even further and go foraging for your own wood from the land around the farm for barbecues and campfires…

Busy days are an inevitably at Penrhosmawr, so make sure you’re well fed for your adventuring: start your day with a breakfast pack from the farm, then stay fuelled with supplies from Machynlleth throughout the day. In the evenings, fire up the barbecue or bag a table at one of the restaurants within five minutes of the site.

Please note

Nice hidden campsite with friendly staff and good facilities.08/06/2021

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The campsite is a quite hilly but there are some nice levelled pitches on one of the fills with a beautiful view. There were only a few other people during our stay so the camp was very quiet and peaceful. The facilities are very nice and clean. The staff was very nice and friendly.

    Disliked: 

    There are a lot of sheeps around the campsite and they can be pretty loud and annoying but you can quickly get used to it.
    We were unable to park by our pitch but the car park is not that far.

    Fantastic view, great location and lovely to sit and watch the skies. Great for camping. Logs to burn available which is really useful. Super friendly staff.

    Disliked: 

    Facilities are minimal. Just one toilet was available for the gents. A lot of the tent areas are not flat - undulating hills so dont expect real flat surface.
