General

  • Hosted eco-friendly site surrounded by spectacular Powys countryside
  • Eco buildings surrounded by a wildflower camping meadow
  • Straw-bale kitchen, toilets and showers

A rural retreat awaits at the peaceful Powys base of Sychpwll Centre, a walker's paradise in the Welsh countryside, two miles from the village of Llandrinio.

The centre houses a range of eco-friendly buildings, surrounded by a wildflower camping meadow. As the site backs onto the River Vyrnwy, both it and the surrounding countryside are an excellent base for guests who want to have an environmentally-friendly stay among spectacular scenery.

Guests are welcome to use the centre's straw-bale kitchen for indoor cooking; outdoors, both barbecues and campfires are allowed. Several country pubs with good food and drink are close by, and guests will be within 30 minutes' drive of the market towns of Shrewsbury, Welshpool and Oswestry.

The site also has a toilet block with instant warm water and showers.

    Lovely quirky site. Quiet and peaceful with lovely walks nearby. Owners very welcoming and friendly.

    Disliked: 

    Could see the number of bathrooms being an issue if fully booked. Maybe a few composting loos in the main field could be helpful.

    My partner and I had a fantastic two night stay at the Sychpwll Centre. We were greeted by Seb who was really friendly and helpful. He showed us around the facilities and gave us some tips for the best places to pitch our tent. The whole place is also environmentally friendly which is really important and was also well organised with COVID-19 measures. We were lucky that we had an entire field to ourselves (imagine this is unusual!) so it was very peaceful. The field had great views and was a perfect spot to watch the sun set. Loved staying here and would definitely return - highly recommended.

    The beautiful scenery and so much attention to detail with every exploration discovering something new. The idyllic space was a true escape with private access to the river meaning we could fish and kayak with ease and the buried trampoline super safe for our very excited 3 year old. Fire pits made for wonderful evenings cosy chatting with friends, we will definately be back and were sad to leave.

    Seb was really friendly and helpful, the area is beautiful and the centre itself is a lovely and well conducted eco project.

    The ability to have a fire is essential for me when camping as it's only a few days a year I get to sit and watch 'natures tv', the guys here provide everything you need to have a safe and enjoyable time beside the campfire.

    We will definately be back.

Local attractions

Based a mile from where the unpolluted River Vrynwy meets the River Severn, Sychpwll is cosy in winter and normally with a good climate in summer. There’s more than enough to do to keep everyone happy all year round, with those coming for walking or cycling holidays particularly having lots of choice.

The hiking in this area gives world class views, such as the famous Offa’s Dyke Path or one of the three routes to the landmark Rodney’s Pillar. Visitors can also visit local farmers’ markets or nearby Lake Vrynwy, or try their hand at one of the many activities nearby, including climbing, fishing, horse riding and watersports. Or, for those who like to hit a ball as hard as possible, tennis is available in town and there’s a golf course within half an hour’s drive.

The market towns of Shrewsbury, Welshpool and Oswestry are around seven miles miles away for shopping, and there are plenty of days out at local attractions such as historic Powys Castle and the Welshpool to Llanfair Light Steam Railway.

Culture vultures can go slightly further afield to Ludlow and Shrewsbury (around 13 miles away), for festivals, arts events and nights on the town.
