- 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.

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).
