View of the park from the river's gate

General

  • Peaceful site with mountain views, a short walk from the River Wye
  • A 15-minute drive from fishing, hiking and cycling in the Elan valley
  • Aromatherapy and Ayurvedic massage; two minutes' walk from mini market

This one’s a bit special… a peaceful park on a former railway station in Powys, a couple of minutes’ walk from the River Wye, with the Cambrian mountains so close you could almost reach out and touch them.

It’s a hive of activity at Doldowlod Caravan Park, but not in the usual railway-station way: with the Wye flowing close by and trees and hedgerows all around this lush green site, this is a haven for feathered life of all kinds, from nuthatches and tree creepers to herons and kingfishers. Human fisherfolk thrive here too, with permits available locally for the catching of brown trout and salmon on the waters of the Wye, the nearby River Elan and the reservoirs of the Elan valley.

The park is a quiet and laidback base to come back to after long days landing fish or hiking the hills and valleys: if the views and the birdsong don’t suffice, then book an Ayurvedic or aromatherapy massage instead…

You needn’t burst this peaceful bubble when it’s time to get the groceries in either: a garage with a mini market and a café is two minutes’ walk away.

    The caravan was really clean and well-kept. The welcome we received on arrival was great. The site was also very clean and well-kept. Would definitely go back again. Have not rated wifi or child-friendliness as we didn't use the wifi and we don't have children.

Local attractions

For more encounters with the area’s avian residents, head over to Rhayader (10 minutes’ drive), where flocks of hungry raptors descend daily upon the Red Kite Feeding Station.

More wildlife can be spotted and walked among in the hills and woods, moors and bogs of the Elan valley (15 minutes' drive), an area often called the Welsh Lake District; trails for hiking and mountain biking and ample spots for angling on the waters are all around the valley too.

A bitesize introduction to the Brecon Beacons can be had via the 40-minute trip to the Pwll y Wrach Nature Reserve, where wooded trails inhabited by badgers, otters and chiffchaffs finish up in a dark and roaring waterfall. If you’re serious about seeing as many high-up regions as you can in a single holiday, it’s a similar distance to Knighton, on the Offa’s Dyke Path and at the southern edge of the Shropshire Hills.

You don’t have to walk it all of course: Three Cocks, half an hour away, is a handy spot to canoe down the River Wye, and at the Llangorse Activity Centre (50 minutes) you can zoom across the terrain on zipwires or trek it on the back of an obliging horse, as well as limbering up your limbs on the indoor climbing wall.

For cosier indoor intervals, bury yourself among the many secondhand bookshops of Hay-on-Wye (45 minutes), an literary town containing almost as many pubs to peruse your paperbacks in, over a pint.
