General

  • Small peaceful site with spectacular countryside views
  • Modern toilet block with disabled access
  • Tearoom on site with free wifi

The Old Station Caravan Park is a small family-run park situated on the old railway station at New Radnor. We're an ideal site for walking, biking or simply relaxing. Set in the beautiful scenery of mid Wales with superb views of the countryside, we welcome tents, tourers and motorhomes and have two holiday caravans for hire.

My husband John and I have been at the caravan park since 2004 and our aim has been to preserve its serenity and history.

We have updated the park over time, building a modern toilet block with showers, which are disabled-friendly. There are also laundry and washing-up facilities. The touring pitches have been upgraded with electric hook-ups to accommodate caravans, trailer tents and motorhomes. Tents are also welcome.

Our new tearoom is open to visitors to enjoy tea, coffee and cakes, and to use the free wifi connection.

Facilities include:

- Electric hook-ups
- A modern toilet block with showers and dressing areas with disabled access. The showers and hot water are free.
- Utilities room with laundry, washing-up facilities and freezer use
- Small on-site shop stocking essential items and OS maps
- Fresh drinking water supply
- Recycling bins
- Chemical toilet disposal point

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

    Lovely owners. The views are lovely.

    Disliked: 

    The laundry, the washing machine did not spin the load effectively therefore it was still dripping wet when put into the dryer. After putting at least £4 into the dryer & no other way to dry it ( raining) I took my wet washing home wishing I hadn't bothered.
    Small pitches. NO heating in shower block.

From the manager...

It was lovely to meet you both over the New Year. Sorry to hear that you had a problem with the washing machine and with the heating. As we are only a small park, we are always on hand if you need any assistance.

    Disliked: 

    No outside water or heating in showers. Had to ask for water to be turned on and wait for warden to come from village.

From the manager...

It was nice to meet you both on your trial run with the motorhome and we hope you enjoyed your trip to Mid-Wales.
We do turn the outside water tap off in the cold weather to avoid freezing but always tell people to let us know when they want to use it. Our heating in the showers is left on over the winter and we are always happy to turn it up if people ask. We are only a small park and we make sure we are on hand if anyone needs any help.
