Local attractions

Based just 200 yards from the River Wye with uninterrupted views of the Cambrian mountains, Doldowlod Caravan Park is three miles from the market town of Rhayader and four miles from the Elan Valley Visitor Centre.

Hay-on-Wye, famous for its books and annual festival, is a 40-minute drive away while the Victorian Spa town of Llandrindod Wells is nine miles by road.

The site is 20 minutes from Builth Wells, home to the Royal Welsh Showground, and 40 minutes from the west Wales coast. It's also at the gateway to Wale's lakeland: the Elan Valley and the visitor centre are four and a half miles away.

This is a ramblers' paradise with hill walks and river walks right on the doorstep. Maps are available at the site and mountain bikes for hire in Rhayader.

Two minutes' walk from our touring field is the River Wye with good salmon, trout and grayling fishing (licence available locally). There's also good fishing on nearby tributary rivers and on a wild local lake.

After a day's activity in the Wye/Elan Valley area, or as part of your peaceful time out, indulge in some pampering with an ayurvedic or aromatherapy massage. A qualified, experienced therapist is available on site.

Doldowlod and the surrounding area is ideal for wildlife enthusiasts and birdwatchers at any time of year; the red kite feeding station is less than five minutes' drive. The on-site feeders and hedgerows are frequently visited by nuthatch, tree creepers, siskins, tits, dunnocks and woodpeckers.

On the river you should regularly see kingfishers, heron, dippers and goosanders: bring your binoculars.
