Woodland setting

General

  • Woodland park site in west Wales, a 5-minute drive from Builth Wells
  • Half an hour's drive from Elan Valley; 40 minutes from Brecon Beacons
  • Communal kitchen, firepit and gas barbecue; games room and playground

Well-earned rest or Royal Welsh Show, hiking the Beacons or bookshop mooching... it’s all here.

Here’s a spot fit for royalty, a five-minute drive from Builth Wells, home of the Royal Welsh Show. Celtic Woodland Holiday Park is close to town, but surrounded by 10 acres of wooded parkland; you’ll feel away from it all and at the centre of everything.

There’s a lot on site to ensure your stay’s a comfortable one, much of it handily packed into a single hub: next to the bathrooms with a walk-in shower is the laundry with washer and dryer; everyone has access to the fridge and microwave oven in the communal kitchen, and a gas barbecue and firepit are outside.

The hub is also home to a games room, with table football, pool, table tennis and air hockey, as well as a stock of books, magazines and DVDs. For those with an urge to hurtle about, the kids’ playground has swings and slides for the smallest hurtlers and a wooden fort for the larger ones.

If you’re itching to get out and explore west Wales, there are trails through the surrounding woodland; head into Builth Wells, meanwhile, and you can walk paths along the River Wye as far as its source in Chepstow, 136 miles away (although perhaps not best to attempt that in one day).

Please note

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

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

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Continental touring caravans (caravans built with the door on the right-hand side) are not permitted.

    Lovely pod in a beautiful location. The woods made a great backdrop in the evenings. Great view from our patio area and great little barbeque area to use. The shared facilities were plentiful and the games room an added bonus. Very friendly staff and as everything was available and laid out so well we didn't need to bother them!

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately there is limited electricity in the pod, anything other than the kettle has to be powered or charged in the communal hub.

    The pitches were astroturfed so they didnt get muddy and they dried very quickly. The shop was well stocked and had everything we may have needed. The amenities were good and well looked after, they also allowed dogs inside which helped alot.

    Had a wonderful stay at Celtic Woodland holidays, despite the rain. We were given a warm welcome on arrival and a tour of the site. We had a beautifully situated pitch for our tent that gave us the ‘forest feel’ and the privacy we wanted, we even had our own BBQ area next to our tent. The site had great facilities that were open all day and night including the games rooms, a comfy sofa area to watch DVDs and get out of the rain, a great kitchen area with access to the fridge, cooker and pots, the site even has a small shop which is available at all times for any bits and bobs you may have forgotten. The toilets and shower were clean and offered everything you need.
    The main town is about 15 mins walk away, we visited a couple of pubs and restaurants whilst staying here.
    Thank you for a lovely stay!

    We couldn't fault the place, it had everything to make it an easy and enjoyable stay especially as the kids had never been camping before. Would certainly recommend and will hopefully be booking again in the future.

Local attractions

The annual Royal Welsh Show draws crowds to Builth Wells every July, but there are events at the showground throughout the year. Whether the circus is in town or not, it’s a place worth wandering, as well as stocked with pubs, eateries and supermarkets: pick up a picnic and make for The Groe, a fab riverside park to scoff your sandwiches among views of the 18th-century Wye Bridge.

For bigger walks, along with mountain biking, angling and nature spotting, head half an hour to the Elan valley, an area of lakes, hills and rivers dubbed the Welsh Lake District. To see nature red in tooth and claw and close up, visit the Red Kite Feeding Station in Rhyader (25 minutes from site) to see an array of hungry raptors battling it out for their rations.

The peaks and moors, waterfalls and castles of the Brecon Beacons are similarly handy for day trips. To see the heights without the huffing and puffing, head an hour’s drive to Pant for a seat on the Brecon Mountain Railway. Equally doable in a day are the beaches, watersporting and coastal walks around Aberystwyth, an hour and 20 minutes away.

If you're more into surfing the bookshelves, it’s half an hour to Hay-on-Wye, home of the famed literary festival and some two dozen booksellers.
