General

  • Peaceful park with river fishing and access to Glyndwr Way footpath
  • Half an hour from Powis Castle and 50 minutes from Barmouth beach
  • Within an hour's drive of Snowdonia National Park and Shropshire Hills

A river runs through it… That’s the title of a 1994 film starring Brad Pitt, and it’s also one of the many fab things about Riverbend Caravan Park in Powys.

The Banwy, a shallow tributary of the Severn, flows through this peaceful Welsh park just outside the village of Llangadfan. You may not spot Brad Pitt on the riverbanks, but there are far better odds of encountering kingfishers and otters, and of catching grayling, brown trout or salmon… just bring along your fishing rod.

Smaller visitors can splash about in the stream and play Pooh Sticks from the nearby stone bridge; there’s also a playground for them to hurtle around on site, and another one in the garden of the pub a minute’s walk away. If you’re all up for long walks, the 135-mile Glyndwr’s Way passes by the village and links up with the even more mammoth Offa’s Dyke Path in Welshpool, half an hour’s drive away.

Back at base, the facilities are clean and well-maintained, with heated towel rails in the washrooms. Dogs are welcome at Riverbend Caravan Park, and also in the pub, which serves hot food and local ales.

This site is a member of Hillandale Caravans group.

From the manager...

Hello and thank you for your lovely review of Riverbend. The park is lovely and quiet so customers always feel they have had a relaxing holiday with us. Thank you also for mentioning our washrooms, we were proud to win an award for them last year and hope to retain the Platinum for 2018. Its great having a nice pub and a Vintage tea room close by as customers have the choice of eating their main course in the pub and having a proper vintage tea in the Tea room which is just across the road.
Unfortunately we were on holiday when you arrived so we never got to meet you , therefore, cannot offer an explanation about the ( fussy owner) comment, but please feel free to ring me and we can go through together as you didn't leave an explanation. Hoping to see you again.

    The park is spotless and very pretty. Shower rooms were also spotless and very private. Overall a great setting. We were lucky enough to meet the Manager, Angie who made us very welcome and helped us plan our activities for the weekend. We decided not to use the car for the whole weekend and was able to go to the local pub and also on a fabulous 8 mile walk/hike straight from the campsite.
    Would highly recommend.

Thank you for you review of Riverbend, we are really happy that you found our pitch sizes generous and that you thought our award winning washrooms were fantastic. The children love our play area in the wooded area, we often see them exploring which is great as the park is surrounded by nature and the wildlife is amazing. Please come back again .

Directions


Take the A458 out of Welshpool heading for the coast. Stay on the A458 for approximately 16.5 miles.

You can park up here and check-in at reception.

Local attractions

One very fine way to visit Welshpool involves steaming in courtesy of the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway, from Llanfair Caereinion (15 minutes’ drive). Once in town, you can continue the historical theme with wanders round the Powysland Museum and tours of Powis Castle, a medieval fortress housing the treasures Robert Clive brought back from India; both are half an hour by car.

Treasures of different kind surround Gregynog Hall, also half an hour away: 750 acres of estate include Grade I-listed formal gardens and a nature reserve of ancient oak woodlands where you might see hares, wood warblers and horseshoe bats.

Mazes, myths, mine descents and craft workshops are on the menu at King Arthur’s Labyrinth in Corris, 45 minutes away, along with transport nostalgia at the steam railway museum.

If it’s a vintage seaside experience you’re seeking, beetle over to Barmouth (50 minutes) for wide sands, safe seas, donkey rides and candy floss, or for something stranger, make the hour and 10-minute trip to Portmeirion, a fantasy Italian fishing village with a scifi past.

Depending on which way you point yourself, an hour’s car journey can take you hiking round Lake Bala and rafting upon it, or rambling the high ridges of the Stiperstones National Nature Reserve in the Shropshire Hills.

Must see

  • Powis Castle & Garden (13.0 miles)
  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (17.6 miles)
  • Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway (27.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Chirk Castle (23.3 miles)
  • Carding Mill Valley and the Shropshire Hills (28.5 miles)
