Smithy Park: Spacious open pitches

General

  • Pretty family-run park on the banks of the River Severn in Abermule
  • Montgomery, Welshpool and Newtown within a 15-minute drive
  • Riverside picnic spots and fishing on site

You're mostly aware of the River Severn as the thing that marks the border of England and Wales, yes? Take a look a little further – well away from the bit with the huge bridges, the UK’s longest river meanders through much of mid Wales, taking in some stunning rural spots along the way.

One of those spots is Smithy Park, a family-run touring park right on the banks of the river in a pretty corner of Powys, in the village of Abermule and 10 minutes’ drive from the town of Montgomery. Picnics and drinks by the riverside are popular activities here, as is settling in to spy on local residents (referring, of course, to the ducks, herons, kingfishers and swans that call the river home – maybe even an otter if you’re very lucky).

Also resident in the river are plenty of fish, which you’re welcome to try to hook out if you’ve got the right kit; you can try your luck a bit further upstream if you’ve got a permit stashed away too. Smaller travellers without such an interest in the river can be kept entertained at the playground and mini football pitch, or dispatched to the ‘Bookery’ by reception to borrow books, DVDs or jigsaws (and it’s also got a whole pile of info on local attractions, pubs and restaurants for planning purposes).

Site staff pride themselves on a warm welcome, and also on warm bathrooms – kept heated on cooler days and kitted out with private cubicles and handy bits such as a free hairdryer.

A local bus service runs from the village: the bus stop is 100 metres down the lane from the park.

This site is a member of Bestparks group.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Thank you for leaving your review, look forward to seeing you again.

The water can transfer between the showers, so for safety we have only opened one. Many people are still preferring to use their own facilities, so it hasn't been a problem. Hopefully we can resume normal service soon!

    Lovely clean and tidy site, very friendly and obliging staff. The fully serviced motorhome pitches are a good size and also have a tv aerial cable. We did ask to move pitch as, having a continental motorhome, we drove forward on to the pitch and left us with a view of the hedge. It was no problem for them to allow us to move to the next pitch with a view of the river and fields. The toilet block was clean and modern, with a oneway route to comply with the Covid regs. Also the Elsan waste point was the only one I had come across with a washbasin and soap to clean up afterwards. I commended them on the neatness of all the hedging and the grass. Easy access to the riverside and can walks. All in all a great site and we will endeavour to return

    The cleanest site we’ve ever stayed on. The facilities were so clean, well maintained and there was always someone on site for help/advice if needed. Check-in and out was seamless, very little indoor person contact for the current restrictions.
    We asked for a pitch close the play area and that’s exactly what we got. Our little one loved being able to run free on the park and we could watch him from our pitch. Wish we could of stayed longer to explore the park more, and make the most of its lovely location close to the water.

    Disliked: 

    The road is a bit noisy at night time if sleeping with the window open.

From the manager...

Glad you enjoyed your stay, remind us of the pitch you liked if you book again!

    Beautifully kept surroundings, hedges neatly trimmed, grass areas were immaculate and some beautiful trees. Every pitch was well spaced apart. Loved having a fully serviced pitch.
    The area next to the river, Kingfisher View, with benches was picturesque.
    Excellent precautions were taken to prevent the spread of Covid.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The river, though mighty, isn’t the only waterway around here: the Montgomeryshire Canal is a short stroll away too, with a waterside path that lends itself well to walks or bike rides to Newtown or Berriew, or beyond to Welshpool (which is 10 miles away, so perhaps best to come back by bus if on foot).

Alternatively, drive to Welshpool (15 minutes) and then take rides on the Llanfair-Welshpool steam railway or boat trips along the canal to get a taste of the local scenery. The grand Italian-style gardens around Powis Castle (just outside Welshpool) are worth a wander too, for colourful floral displays, ambitious topiary and gorgeous views over the surrounds.

Somewhat more crumbling but no less atmospheric are the ruins of Dolforwyn Castle (half an hour’s walk) and Montgomery’s castle and town walls (10 minutes).

And though the countryside is splendid around here, sometimes the coast just calls your name – if that’s the case, drive west for an hour or so to get to Aberystwyth, Aberdyfi or Borth for a blast of sea air.

Must see

  • Powis Castle & Garden (8.2 miles)
  • Stokesay Castle (18.9 miles)
  • Ludlow Castle (24.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Carding Mill Valley and the Shropshire Hills (17.4 miles)
  • Wilderhope Manor (23.8 miles)
