Around the site

General

  • Family-friendly site half an hour from the spectacular Elan valley
  • Ramblers’ haven: Glyndŵrs Way, Ceredigion Coast Path within an hour
  • Wild ‘no frills’ camping for distraction-free hols

Ever feel nostalgic for the olden days, when your attention wasn’t so easily divided? At Babylon Wild Campsite, a small family-friendly site five minutes’ drive from the village of Pant-y-Dwr and 15 minutes from Rhayader in Powys, it’s like stepping back to a time where all the distractions were gone.

Babylon Wild is ‘no frills’ camping at its purest (for camping purists, natch) – just you, the trees, the fields and the peace and quiet of the Welsh countryside. There’s no electricity, so settle in for a stay like they had before the internet. You’ll only be able to charge your phone when the ever-so-helpful owners are on site, so either bring a power pack or make your peace with it...

This is a top spot to use as a base for poking around west Wales: sign up for some pony trekking in Rhayader, follow nearby cycle paths straight to the stunning Elan valley, pick up the long-distance cultural trail Glyndŵrs Way where it passes through Llanidloes (10 minutes away), or make the longer trip to the coast at Aberystwyth to join the Ceredigion Coast Path for spectacular views over Cardigan Bay.

It really is back to basics here, so have a plan for bathroom breaks and drinking water (these should probably not be the same plan). Pack a barbecue for grub time (supermarkets about 10 minutes from the site), or head to one of the many restaurants within half an hour to treat yourself to something fancier.

Local attractions

Want to learn everything you can about the past of this part of Wales? This is mining country, so start with the Silver Mountain Experience (35 minutes’ drive from Babylon Wild Campsite), then travel on to the National Trust’s Dolaucothi Gold Mines, which dates back to Roman times.

Need more history? No problem – the Victorian spa town of Llandrindod Wells (home to the National Cycle Collection) is half an hour away, and Powis Castle and Garden, Cwmmau Farmhouse, Corris Steam Railway Museum and the House on Crutches Museum are all within an hour of the site.

If you want to see the sea during your hols, opt for a day’s jaunt to the coast at Aberystwyth, just under an hour away. There’s a beach here for swimming, sandcastles and strolls; otherwise you can take the funicular up Constitution Hill to the camera obscura, or spend an afternoon surrounded by butterflies at Magic of Life. A trip on the Vale of Rheidol steam train is a must – clamber aboard for a scenic journey to the stunning Devils Bridge Falls, a fab nature walk through Rheidol Gorge and plenty of photo opps.
