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.

    Peaceful location, hosts were great and very welcoming and helpful. Good friendly feeling about the campsite. Toilet, shower and kitchen facilities all good. A great place to spend a sunny weekend to get away from it all.

    Remote location but very tranquil. Super welcome from Ben and good tour of site and facilities. Trampoline and swing were v popular with our 4 yr old.

    Disliked: 

    Not so keen on the long meadow grass for the tents as some of the foliage pierced a ground sheet.

    Ben and the owner were super helpful and enthusiastic. It was a beautiful setting with privacy as the tents are not pitched closely, kitchen facilities were brilliant so didn't need to bring everything from home.
    welcoming and relaxing and the home made apple juice you can buy is an absolute must - we bought 2 bottles home with us!

A little bit of paradise on the Welsh border 07/05/2018

  • Liked: 

    Beautiful setting and so peaceful.
    This is what camping should be like. No electric hook-ups and camping in the long grass of a flower meadow.
    Some people might find the facilities are on the quirky side (straw bale communal area and unisex toilets and showers), but I thought they were great.
    There was a nice calm buzz and Pete and Ben, who run the place, were so friendly.
    Can't wait to go back.

    Beautiful location, lovely spacious layout, not crammed in at all. Very reasonable provision of fire pit and wood but hardly beeded as a lovely communal bonfire lit at dusk. The staff couldn’t have been nicer, and they have created a relaxing calm atmosphere. We loved it.

  • Liked: 

    Nice location and plenty of space to feel like you have your own bit of the site. Facilities (toilets and showers) very clean and modern. Site and pitches are very well looked after. Staff very helpful and around if you need them. The weather wasn't good to us but hardly a fault of the centre. It's worth you doing a bit of research about places to visit if you intend to get out and about.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike but hard to find first time round with satnav etc.

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.

Must see

  • Powis Castle & Garden (9.1 miles)
  • Much Wenlock Priory (22.2 miles)
  • Darby Houses (Ironbridge) (23.4 miles)
