Millers Rest Campsite: Grassy pitches

General

  • Peaceful family-run Mid Wales site in the grounds of a watermill
  • A 10-minute walk to a vineyard; a 25-minute drive to the Stiperstones
  • Accessible family shower room; farm-run ice cream station next door

From acting like a wine aficionado on the local vineyard to hiking around the historic sites on the Stiperstones… Millers Rest Campsite will get you recharging your batteries in no time. This place is a family-run site in Powys, 10 minutes’ drive away from the Shropshire Hills, on the grounds of the 17th-century Bacheldre Watermill.

That means that sublime scenery’s a given, including mature trees, farmlands and streams surrounding the site. It’s really quite remote… all the more privacy and peace for your lot.

Despite all this, there’s no need to give up your creature comforts. The site has free showers including an accessible shower room (suited to larger families) and a heated toilet block. There’s also a dishwashing area and waste disposal area to ensure that you keep your grassy pitches nice and tidy, primed for more relaxation.

As for tracking down some tasty eats, well, there’s a homemade ice cream station next door to the site, where the flavours are made from dairy fresh from their farm. Thankfully, there are no shortages of pubs in the surrounding area either, with popular spots in Bishop’s Castle (15 minutes’ drive for its quirky shops and cafés too) and several more pubs within 10 minutes’ drive of the site

Closer by, there’s a hotel bar serving food (five minutes’ drive) and Churchstoke (under five minutes’ drive) has a food shop, petrol station, launderette and café for all the more snacks, afternoon teas and the likes.

    Tranquility. Clean facilities

    Disliked: 

    Most of the pitches are not quite flat, we could have been very upset if allocated a more steep pitch, as we would have needed to spent along time finding a suitable patch of grass. All the motor home pictures are flat. As it was we were the only ones camping so we chose at our leisure, and found a really good spot.

Local attractions

While pubs are certainly one place to put back a few local ales, those of you who are a bigger fan of a glass of red or white will want to pay a visit to Kerry Vale Vineyard (10 minutes’ walk) to sample their flavours. There’s a brewery in Montgomery (10 minutes’ drive) for another drinks-style outing or perhaps a look inside its castle, independent shops, cafés or visitor centre.

What’s the cocktail in Welshpool (20 minutes)? Well, it might be the heritage railway, modern art or the canal works. Meanwhile, at Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd (35 minutes), you’ll stumble upon a tasty mix of moorland walks, mountain biking trails and a stream through the valley, all owned by the National Trust valley with moorland walks, a stream and mountain biking trails.

Like to hone in on some historic sites while you’re on your holidays too? Well, there’s Clun Castle (25 minutes) not too far away and a Bronze Age stone circle at Mitchell's Fold Stone Circle (15 minutes). More historic sites litter the way around the five and a half-mile hilly hike around the Stiperstones (25 minutes).

Must see

  • Powis Castle & Garden (8.6 miles)
  • Stokesay Castle (13.8 miles)
  • Ludlow Castle (20.0 miles)
