Riverbend Caravan Park: Herons, dippers, otters and kingfishers can be seen on the river banks and fishing is allowed

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.

    What a fabulous camping site and facilities, the only disappointment was we only stayed 1 night. Awesome location on the bend of the river with a nice woodland along the banks. Washing and toilet facilities were outstanding and probably the best i’ve come across. Purpose built new unit with lovely hotel quality showers and toilets.
    We will definitely stop there again and fully recommend it to others.

    We had a fantastic four night break at Riverbend Caravan Park. The site is very well maintained and the facilities were exceptional. It was very quiet and peaceful; exactly what we were looking for.
    The river was very low so the fishing was not very rewarding but it was good to be able to use the the river anyway. The weather was fantastic; dawn to dusk sunshine, which is a lot more than we expected in late September.
    The staff were all excellent. All the workers seemed committed to their work and were chatty and friendly. Angie and Lindsey were really approachable and were seriously committed to maintaining the standards and improving the green credentials of the site. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

Directions

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 fantastical 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 (21.0 kilometres)
  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (28.3 kilometres)
  • Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway (43.7 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Chirk Castle (37.5 kilometres)
  • Carding Mill Valley and the Shropshire Hills (45.9 kilometres)
