Riverside Caravan and Camping Park: Gravel & Grass

General

  • Family-friendly site 15 minutes' drive from Builth Wells
  • Elan Valley and Brecon Beacons within a half-hour drive
  • On the banks of the River Irfon for fishing and wild swimming

There are many things that draw people to seek out riverside spots for their hols – you may fancy a bit of fishing, or perhaps you’ve got an eye on the scenic picnic potential, or maybe you secretly (or not so secretly) just yearn to get in for a wild swim…

Whichever of the above you’ve got in mind matters not, for they’re all covered at Powys site Riverside Caravan and Camping Park, in little Llangammarch Wells and 15 minutes’ drive from the ancient market town of Builth Wells. As the name intimates, this four-acre park is indeed on the riverside – the banks of the Irfon river, to be more specific. Fishing is allowed on site for those clutching the correct permit, and there’s direct access to the water for those who want to cool their feet with a tentative paddle or take the plunge for a full-on swim.

There’s plenty of space for open-air eats too, either a picnic or a cookout at the barbecue area; covered gazebos have also been set up just in case the weather isn’t amenable (and they’re also piled high with handy things like games of giant Jenga, footballs, hula hoops and an electricity supply for recharging your gadgets).

Time out in the open air might include watching over the kids at the playground, taking the dog for a walk along the riverbank from the village or around one of the other excellent dog-walking spots locally (there’s a washing machine on site to deal with any muddy pawprints they leave you with) or ambling over to the local pub, 10 minutes’ stroll away. Being in a dark sky area, there's often also some fab stargazing to be had by night.

    Good directions, easy to find site. Stunning river side location, with Red Kite birds of pray flying above. Ther is also a good number of phesants roaming the site.
    Lovely walks in the area, with just the best mountain views.
    The site was the cleanest we have ever stayed in. 50p for the showers which had lovely hot water. seperate area away from the motorhomes & tents for your rubbish which is recycled as much as possible, carboard, plastic, glass etc.
    The hosts were happy, smiling and welcoming.
    Our motorhome pitch was a newly stoned area next to a grass patch perfect to set up our awning.
    We met a resident on the site so lovely to chat too about the area, walks in the area. so friendly and helpful.
    On the drive to the site views of the Mendip hills/mountains were breath taking.we loved this site and will visit again

    The whole site ! It was immaculate 🥰

    This weekends adventures took us to the extremely quiet village of Llangammarch Wells and the fantastic campsite called @riverside_caravan_camping_park ! The village was way too quiet for us. No pubs, no shops but amazing walks to get out with the dog. The site however was absolutely amazing ! James and his team had thought of things to make the stay a little easier. We hired a fire pit and marshmallows from the site but you could also hire just the pit, buy bags or ice and even tip tops on hot days. The shower/toilet block was amazingly clean and the grounds where exceptional. The fact that the site is gated made us feel extra safe 😊 The site runs alongside a river which I imagine on sunny days gives the kids hours of fun. The site also has a hut with toys that could be borrowed and a covered communal area with picnic benches for the not so sunny days. Another highlight was the egg man ! He comes with the boot of his car open ringing his bell to let people know he’s there. In his boot was chicken and duck eggs, chutneys and jams. ❤️ This site definitely didn’t disappoint ! We shall certainly be visiting again ⛺️📍🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 #campinglife #tentbox #tentboxlite #tentboxliteorange #llangammarchwells

    The site was exceptionally clean, right on a river. Perfect for our dog. Toilets/Shower area were spotless. Coded door to gain access to site. Felt very secure.

    Disliked: 

    Advertised as having a pub 5 minutes walk away which was the selling point for us to have some decent food. Arrived to be told pub hadn't been open for a long time! No shop on site either!! Had to go back out and drive 3 miles just to get some food. Wouldn't have booked if we'd known this. Web page needs to reflect accuracy!

  • Bluebell camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Very pleasant site.
    Our 6 year old grand daughter loved it as there was plenty of room to play with other children.
    The lodge was very clean and adequate for us.
    No wifi but good 4G signal.

    Disliked: 

    Water at the dish washing facility was never more than just lukewarm making for inefficient dish washing. During our stay there was an ongoing issue with the dish washing facilty apparently causing septic tank overflow problems. Rolls of paper towel were provided to wipe dishes before washing in an attempt to alleviate matters.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. We are delighted you liked the site and are so pleased your daughter had a great time.
Like many rural properties, we do not have mains drains but use a septic tank which copes well with campers’ normal use. During your stay, another guest poured a quantity of fat and food waste down the washing up sink. This caused a problem with the septic tank, which we worked quickly to resolve. We provided rolls of blue paper towels and a notice asking guests to wipe fat and food waste off their dishes before washing them, to try to avoid this happening again.

Local attractions

This part of the world has many enticing options for folk who like a good walk or bike ride on their hols: as well as local riverside paths, you might also like to consider setting off for the Elan Valley (half an hour’s drive) to ramble by lakes and waterfalls, or aim south to the trails of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

For other outdoorsy days, there’s a fine golf course in Builth Wells (15 minutes) and the chance to see big birds take flight at the Red Kite Feeding Station in Rhyader (half an hour). The Brecon Mountain Railway (an hour) is a great choice for those who’d like to see the scenery at slow pace, and the Dolaucothi Roman gold mines likewise for folk intrigued by what lies beneath their feet.

There’s a lot going on throughout the year in this area too – time your trip cleverly to tie in with the Hay-on-Wye Book Festival (45 minutes), the parades of fine beasts at the Royal Welsh Show (20 minutes) or the famed World Bog Snorkelling Championships (10 minutes).

Must see

  • Dolaucothi Gold Mines - National Trust (27.7 kilometres)
  • National Showcaves of Wales (32.4 kilometres)
  • Brecon Mountain Railway (37.4 kilometres)
