General

  • Peaceful Dyfi valley site by a riverside, opened in 2019
  • A 15-minute drive from Machynlleth and 35 from the seaside at Barmouth
  • River beach, communal firepits and barbecues/campfires allowed

What might you adventurously fancy first when you arrive at Dyfi Adventure Campsite? A hike off into the Welsh hills, mountains and lush green countryside of the Dyfi valley? A hurtle down acclaimed mountain biking trails… or climbing to heady heights around the trails of Snowdonia National Park just to the north…?

Or you might care to take things most easily instead... If your sense of adventure extends to peace, quiet and beaches, all is sorted here too: Dyfi Adventure is in a land of spectacular views and gentle strolls, next to the River Dyfi for waterside ambles, paddles and a lounge on the riverside beach. More beaches – wide, wild and sandy – are within driving distance at Aberdyfi and Barmouth, each 35 minutes away.

And then? An evening around the campfire, but of course – both campfires and barbecues are sensibly allowed here and there’s a communal firepit if you’re still feeling sociable after your day mountain biking (bragging encouraged).

The closest big town for supplies is Machynlleth, 15 minutes’ drive away.

    Fantastic location next to the river, great facilities and really friendly owners. You can buy firewood and pay by card which is super handy too. It’s really easy to find as the postcode takes you to exactly the right place.

    We absolutely loved this site. The location and set up of site right next to river was great and each day we bathed in the river after a long day at the beach. My daughter even managed to catch some small fish with her net. It is a quiet site, basically a field with beautiful views right by the river with a couple of compost toilets and a shower plus washing up station (all made of wood). We loved the fact there was no concrete around or harsh lighting from brick buildings. Camping at its best in my opinion. If your big on facilities then this probably is not for you. The toilets and shower were rustic but clean and kept to that natural feel of the site. The owners visit each evening to collect monies owed and other than that your left to it so not intrusive at all.

    My only grumble is that the grass was quite long in many places and due to morning dew meant wet feet each morning, small thing tho!

    The stars at night were amazing and whole site lovely and quiet.

    We will definantly be back.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing at all. Was all good.

    quiet location.
    Clean eco compostable toilets and eco shower
    Riverside setting
    use of fire pit

    Disliked: 

    Weren't enough toilets or showers once it got to 4 tents and 1 tepee on site.
    i wouldn't like to be there if there were the 16 tents allowed.
    the grass was very long which made walking to the loo very wet morning and night.
    Owner was nice, but kept coming to see us each day. we were there for privacy so this felt a little intrusive. we were a quiet middle aged group of 3. I think some people might like this but we are all massive introverts so found it a bit much.

    We took our 19 month old daughter for two nights. It was a great place to camp with a beautiful aspect to look out on. The facilities were basic but good, the shower was warm all day and the compost toilets were kept clean. There was no hot water to wash up however. You are allowed to have a fire but you will need to take your own fire pit as there are only two on site. There was no rush to get off the site on the last day and the owners were very friendly and helpful.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Start off with a stroll to the Old Coach House just over a mile away: it’s not a pub as the name would suggest, but a carefully managed wildlife garden open to the public and a lush landscape for birds and insects. The garden has a small pond, flower and vegetable beds, beehives and shaded seating areas – take a stroll round then settle down for a cream tea.

More energetically, the Dyfi valley is stellar mountain biking land in the land around  Machynlleth and the Dyfi forest. Hire a bike and helmet in town if you haven’t brought your own, then set off on the nine and a half-mile Cli-mach X trail around the southern part of the forest, or go for one of the Mach trails setting out from Machynlleth.

A day in Machynlleth should also be slotted into your schedule, to spend an afternoon around the swish Centre for Alternative Technology or picking up Welsh produce at the big Wednesday market. If you’re a hiker rather than a biker, walking paths cut through the town too: set off on the 135-mile Glyndwr's Way running through Powys from Knighton to Welshpool, or the 108 miles of the Dyfi Valley Way, meandering all the way along the River Dyfi and back down the other bank.

Must see

  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (13.1 kilometres)
  • Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway (27.4 kilometres)
  • CADW - Harlech Castle (34.0 kilometres)
