General

  • Eco-friendly site surrounded by spectacular Powys countryside
  • Eco buildings surrounded by a wildflower camping meadow
  • Straw-bale kitchen, toilets and showers

A rural retreat awaits at the peaceful base of the Sychpwll Centre, in a walker's paradise in the Welsh countryside.

The centre houses a range of eco-friendly buildings, surrounded by a wildflower camping meadow. As the site backs onto the River Vyrnwy, it and the surrounding countryside are an excellent base for guests who want to have an environmentally-friendly stay among spectacular scenery.

Guests are welcome to use the centre's straw-bale kitchen for indoor cooking; outdoors, both barbecues and campfires are allowed. Several country pubs with good food and drink are close by, and you'll be within 30 minutes of the market towns of Shrewsbury, Welshpool and Oswestry.

The site also has a toilet block with instant warm water and showers.

Great campsite with loads of space 02/07/2018

    Very friendly welcome from Ben who showed us various options to where we could pitch our tent. Blessed with fantastic weather we quickly made our way to the river for a swim and spent most of our day in and around the riverside. Lots of nice walks in the area. Facilities good including decent kitchen. Hired a fire pit and wood for small cost. You can also buy home made apple juice which was splendid.

    Relaxed atmosphere. Very friendly staff. Good facilities. Lovely safe environment for the kids. Would certainly stay again.

    Disliked: 

    Minor quibble. An event taking place meant that the kitchen facilities (including fridges, sinks, etc) were quite busy and it was hard for the staff to keep the toilets as clean as usual due to the heavy footfall. On the flip-side we were warned in advance about the event and it did add some interest to the weekend.

    This site is a hidden gem. So much space to camp with a variety of fields to choose from. The icing on the cake is the hosts. Ben and Pete are super helpful and super friendly making you feel welcome from the minute you arrive. We will definitely be going back.

    - Ben, the manager of the camp site, was the most hands-on and helpful manager out of all campsites I've ever been to!

    We have just got back from Sychpwll and have had a fantastic couple of days . Beautiful surroundings even when heavy storms hit . A very relaxing stay .Will definitely be coming back as only 75 miles from home and totally wild camping with sufficient toilet /shower facilities . Also loved the apple juice nicely frozen on arrival and very refreshing in the hot weather .Brillant that small fire pits are allowed .Which allowed us to enjoy toasting a few marshmallows . Love that the site is eco . Plenty of wildlife and trees and fauna .Off the beaten track which suits me .

    Disliked: 

    Only very small thing that could be improved is the men's watering hole .Would be much better if the inside was strimmed back . The nettles would definitely give you something to remember if stung on the wrong part of the body if you know what I am saying ! .

Directions


Your satnav will get you lost: please read the directions below.

The nearest train station is Shrewsbury, followed by Gobowen or Welshpool.

There is a bus service from Shrewsbury bus station with Tanat Valley Coaches. The D74 service runs approximately every three hours, Monday to Saturday. If you get off at Llandrinio bridge traffic lights the centre is about one mile from here.

There is a local taxi service in the village and if you prefer, Chris' Cabs will happily collect you from the train station.

From London:

Take the M1 and then the M6 towards Birmingham but do not join the toll section. Keep on the main M6 and then exit on the M54 towards Telford. Keep on this motorway until it becomes the A5 towards Oswestry and north Wales. After a series of roundabouts look out for the A458 to Welshpool and turn left. Continue down the A458 for a couple of miles and turn right at the B4393 towards Llandrinio and Lake Vyrnwy.

After just over 7 miles you will come to a set of traffic lights just before a humpback bridge over the River Severn. Turn right immediately after the bridge. The signpost says Haughton. The first turning on the right signs to Haimwood but keep on the main lane and after just under a mile take the second turning on the right. This narrow lane is not signed but look out for the telegraph pole. If you pass a sign on the left to Rhos Common you have just overshot the lane! Drive down the lane and follow the tarmac as it turns sharp right. At the end of the lane drive though a clump of trees and you have arrived.

Local attractions

Based a mile from where the unpolluted River Vrynwy meets the River Severn, Sychpwll is cosy in winter and normally with a good climate in summer. There’s more than enough to do to keep everyone happy all year round, with those coming for walking or cycling holidays particularly having lots of choice.

The hiking in this area gives world class views, such as the famous Offa’s Dyke Path or one of the three routes to the landmark Rodney’s Pillar. Visitors can also visit local farmers’ markets or nearby Lake Vrynwy, or try their hand at one of the many activities nearby, including climbing, fishing, horse riding and watersports. Or, for those who like to hit a ball as hard as possible, tennis is available in town and there’s a golf course within half an hour’s drive.

The market towns of Shrewsbury, Welshpool and Oswestry are around seven miles miles away for shopping, and there are plenty of days out at local attractions such as historic Powys Castle and the Welshpool to Llanfair Light Steam Railway.

Culture vultures can go slightly further afield to Ludlow and Shrewsbury (around 13 miles away), for festivals, arts events and nights on the town.
