General

  • Luxury woodland retreat in Powis
  • Within 45 minutes' drive of canal walks, hill trails and waterfalls
  • A 10-minute drive from Welshpool, Powis castle and steam railway

Definitely put this woodland wonder top of your list. Dingles Glamping is a peaceful site surrounded by woods, gardens, paddock and stream, about 10 minutes' drive from the market town of Welshpool in Powys.

The accommodation on this small site is cool in the summer months, cosy in the winter with outside seating, barbecues and comfy beds already made up. Each unit has its own secluded area amongst the greenery, so you'll feel completely away from it all, with just the birds and the bees for company, and the stars to gaze up at when darkness falls.

A flushing toilet is in the main house for guests' use; hot showers are also available.

There's a good spread of shops and supermarkets in Welshpool, so you're well supplied for picnic supplies and tasty treats to grill up alfresco on your barbecue back at Dingles Glamping. If you want a break from the self-catering side, there's a number of pubs with grub and other eateries in the town as well.

Excellent stay with plenty of facilities and wonderful staff 30/08/2017

    Excellent stay with everything available for us upon arrival. We stayed in the wooden pod which included two beds with bedding and blankets, a barbecue area, a fire pit (which was lit for us before we arrived - amazing!), and a picnic table with chairs sat under a gazeebo. The lovely owner Anne-Marie provided us with everything, we could have arrived empty-handed and we would have been catered for! - disposable barbecues, gas canisters, a whistling kettle, firelighters, a washing up bowl - you name it, they had it. We loved the fact that they focus on the area being kept natural and free from any pollution - our car was safely kept outside the manor house just 300m away from the area, and we used torches to avoid light pollution from permanent lights. The town of Welshpool is just a 10 minute drive which offers some bars and shops, and Powys Castle was lovely to explore. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would most definitely return again next summer.

Brilliant escape with clean, comfortable facilities and lovely hosts. 13/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Jodie P. Confirmed

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again

    The hosts were brilliant, very friendly, nothing was too much trouble, by far went above and beyond to ensure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. Also were not intrusive, left us to it unless we wanted anything.
    Had access to our own shower and loo at the house which we could use at any time of day or night, very clean and comfortable and functional.
    The pod was brilliant, nicely carpeted with two comfortable single beds and a storage chest. Beds were made up when we arrived which was a bonus we didn't expect.
    The area around the pod was very quiet and secluded surrounded by trees, with a very good fire pit, covered area with table and chairs, barbecue, bin, etc.
    We were allowed to collect our own wood from surrounding trees for the fire.
    Some nice walks out from the property and very short drive to a Londis supermarket and garage, and not much further into Welshpool where there is plenty to do.
    The Pod is part of a health and well-being centre, we were offered the opportunity to participate in activities going on but if we didn't want to these didn't disturb our space.
    No WiFi, electricity or signal may be a negative for some but we found it a bonus as it forced us off our phones and made us properly relax and unwind. We played top trumps!

    Overall, value for money was fantastic!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really! Some small ideas for other things to include:
    Playing cards/board games/similar.
    Maps of local area, including pubs etc
    Information on local activities?
    Not sure if this would suit everyone but a small 4ft double bed rather than two single beds would have been a better use of space for us.

Local attractions

Castles are thick on the ground round here, a testament to how prized the land was and still is: Gaer Fawr (10 minutes' drive) dates back to the Iron Age, Powis Castle (15 minutes) combines medieval fortifications with the treasures Robert Clive (aka Clive of India) brought back to his family seat from the East in the 18th century while the ruins of 13th-century Dolforwyn are chiefly worth the climb for the views.

For more views, with walks attached, there's gentle, waterside ambles on the Montgomery Canal Trail starting in Welshpool, bigger hikes up the once-volcanic Breidden Hills half an hour away and views across Shropshire from Heath Mynd and Stiperstones, both around 40 minutes away. It's a similar distance to the longest (and possibly loudest) waterfall in England and Wales, Pistyll Rhaeadr.

If you prefer to see the delights of Powys from a comfy padded seat then bag a berth on the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway, puffing a mere eight miles from Welshpool to Llanfair Caereinion (15 minutes) but taking in some fab views en route. If you want an even more glamorous mode of transport, you can book helicopter tours from Welshpool airport, or to experience the terrain in the bumpiest and muddiest way possible, head over to Border Quad Trekking (half an hour).

Must see

  • Powis Castle & Garden (3.0 miles)
  • Stokesay Castle (23.5 miles)
  • Much Wenlock Priory (27.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Chirk Castle (17.9 miles)
  • Carding Mill Valley and the Shropshire Hills (18.5 miles)

Cycle routes
