General

  • Hosted 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 Powys base of Sychpwll Centre, a walker's paradise in the Welsh countryside, two miles from the village of Llandrinio.

The centre houses a range of eco-friendly buildings, surrounded by a wildflower camping meadow. As the site backs onto the River Vyrnwy, both 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 guests will be within 30 minutes' drive of the market towns of Shrewsbury, Welshpool and Oswestry.

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

    We absolutely loved our stay, just after the bank holiday rush had subsided. Milo the dog had a whale of a time too with lots of volunteers to play ball with. The site is unique. Peter and his team are so helpful and friendly that we'll certainly return. Thank you Ben for the introduction to Viking Chess, I'll be making my own set. And thank you Darcie for the delicious apple and pear crumble to have with our coffee. We felt included and you can't ask for more.

    Such a warm welcome from Ben and Peter. The site is magical with meadows, woods, a hazel corridor, reed beds, fruit trees, a river. Facilities perhaps a tad rustic but absolutely appropriate for the site - if you want all modcons this isn't the place for you. If you're after nature, peace and quiet, space to find your own pitch, and a magical atmosphere, then this is the spot!

    Disliked: 

    Just a little expensive in comparison to other similar sites we've stayed without EHU. But we'd pay it again.

    Friendly welcoming nature, great facilities, lovely atmosphere, good ecological aware site. I will definitely think about returning.

    Disliked: 

    Lack of signposting! Finding the place is not so easy (sat nav is no good for this place! You need to keep an eye open if your kids tend to stray because with open fields near by and deep ditches there are some safety concerns.

    Only stayed one night, but me and the kids throughly enjoyed it. The owners were friendly and welcoming and the amenities were suitable for us. I would return back if only to enjoy the colourful scenery and feel of camping out in the wild.

    Super eco-friendly site, everything we needed was provided for us, nice walks were right beside, people camping their were friendly and respectful of distance, Ben the site manager looked after us well when needed, provided fire pits and whatever else,
    Some got involved in apple juice making or going to feed the cows, others liked the kitchen facilities,
    Mostly we just liked the private meadow we camped in,

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.
