General

  • Fantastic fishing opportunities on the River Banwy
  • A quiet oasis for a relaxing holiday
  • Unspoilt countryside all around

Riverbend offers peace and tranquillity settings on the River Banwy, a shallow tributary of the River Severn. Here you have the opportunity to observe the varied wildlife we have on the park or enjoy free fishing in the river.

We hold extensive fishing rights on the River Banwy, where catches yield among other varieties, grayling, brown trout and the occasional salmon. Just bring your own equipment and fishing rods.

Riverbend provides a haven of peace and relaxation for all ages, although the tranquillity particularly suits mature adults, the youngsters love the children's play area located away from the touring field, shallow river, fishing and the abundance of nature and wildlife.

New top class washrooms with family rooms as well as toilets and showers have been opened for the 2016 season.. There is also a pot wash, chemical waste and grey waste points and a recycling area. We are an award-winning wildife park with an abundance of nature and species to see.

This site is a member of Hillandale Caravans group.

    Honestly this place is great, park is clean and tidy, the owners are polite, friendly and really easy to chat to. Colin, my husband loved fishing, and what was great was the river was on the park itself. got talking to a few who stay regular and they said best place they have ever stayed in. We had a small problem with our son who cut his hand and the owner took care of it straight away, no fuss. Great place, great holiday and GREAT OWNERS!

    A lovely site in a most beautiful area of Wales. Greeted by the most welcoming and helpful site managers who couldn't do enough to ensure we were pitched in the most appropriate place ahead of storm Aileen that was fast approaching.
    The site was beautifully peaceful next to a crystal clear river lined with mature trees, perfect for wildlife.
    There are so many lanes and footpaths around the site it's great for walking. Glyndwr's way runs just past the gate.
    Welshpool, dolgellau and lake Vyrnwy are all within easy reach and well worth visiting.
    The washrooms are beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean, certainly amongst the best we have found.
    5 lovely days despite some very inclement weather.
    Added to our 'must visit again' list.

Thank you so very much for you lovely review, we take a lot of pride in our Park and customers, like yourselves, make it a pleasure to run. Your so right about the walks and rivers and wildlife, we have seen Kingfishers, Kytes, Kestrels, owls to name but a few. The River has trout and salmon and is also great to just sit and listen to it if you don't fish. We really look forward to your next visit and hope you enjoy Scotland ( but not as much as Wales) :) Safe journey both :)

The cleanliness of the shower block 15/09/2017

    The cleanliness of the shower block

    Disliked: 

    The attitude of the manager was unacceptable when we had a problem with our gas bottle. The gas bottle had a faulty valve which led to a leak. The bottle was removed from the motorhome and placed on an area of grass away from all vehicles for safety but was in view from the motorhome. We were frightened and shook up by the event to say the least. Shortly afterwards there was a knock on the door by a lady who immediately told us that we would have to remove the gas bottle from the park despite it being 9pm. It was explained that there was a fault on the bottle but she reiterated that we MUST remove it from the park immediately. When asked where the nearest stockist was she said' that's your problem' as it was park rules. There was no internet connection so we could not search for a stockist. She stated that she could smell gas and it was explained to her that there was a fault and that was the reason for the smell. When asked who she was she said she was the manager. She then said we should keep the bottle on our pitch next to our motorhome, which was closer to other vehicles, despite there being a fault. At no time did she ask if everyone was ok and there was no consideration for anyone's safety. This spoilt the whole experience and we left early the following day to find a gas stockist. On another note, a small dog tried to enter our motorhome which was not on a lead despite park rules that all dogs should be on a short lead. At no time did she tell the owner of the dog the rules regarding short leads. As responsible dog owners we abide by park rules regarding dogs and we find this unfair.

From the manager...

Hello, thank you for your review, I feel that your review is very unfair, we were walking around the park as we always do very evening to check and make sure everything and everyone is ok, we came across a gas bottle which was left unattended on a pitch which raised big concerns I asked you was it yours and you replied yes, all I did was ask you to remove it to a safer location, i appreciate it was a wet evening and you may not have been keen to come out of your Motorhome but at the same time we have the parks safety and our customers safety in mind and from that alone we were very much keen for you to remove it. As for stockists, we are new to Llangadfan and didn't have that information to hand. As for the dog my husband had a word with the owner who apologised as the dog had escaped.

    Absolutely beautiful park, the toilets/showers are the best i have ever seen. The Managers will do anything to make your stay as perfect as possible. I simply cannot fault this lovely park and will book for a longer period asap. Angie even took the time out of her busy day to sit and talk with me about my daughter with epilepsy, it helped to share and now i class her as my new friend. Thank you to Riverbend! We are seriously considering a static to make our stay longer.

Awe Hi again Elliegh, I cant thank you enough for your kind review, it was a privilege to sit and talk with you and I am very happy to know I helped a little, even if it was to listen. Really looking forward to you returning, if not as a tourer then as a Static Holiday home owner.

See you soon

    Nice chilled site
    Very clean
    Wanted to extend our stay but were told from the management that we couldn't as they were fully booked up for the rest of the week but according to pitch up there's availability ?? Even spoke to one of the other holiday makers who we rang and they said there was pitches empty after we left ?.

    Disliked: 

    Toilet/shower block close from 8am to 9am for cleaning which is a ridiculous time to shut just as your waking up and need the toilet especially when you're with young children too.
    The pub that's close to site is very expensive so be careful.

From the manager...

Hello and thank you for your review. The pitch you were on is booked up until thursday. The pub is nothing to do with Riverbend but we have had customers who appreciate the closeness of it. However we are glad your liked us enough to return. If you wish us to contact you for any cancellations please let us know. The washroom times for deep cleaning is usually before people are awake. We take pride in making sure they are spotless for our customers. The reason we close them is for the saftey of the park users.

    Absolutely fantastic. This was our first time away in our touring caravan and we couldn't have picked a better site. Facilities and site was immaculate. Angie and her husband ensured our stay was perfect. So much so, we have booked to go again in two weeks time. Amazingly peaceful and tranquil site. Highly recommend
