Belan Bluebell Woods: Camping meadow

General

  • Scenic and off-grid back to nature site on a 60-acre farm
  • A 10-minute drive from Llanidloes and 45 minutes from Aberystwyth
  • Locally sourced barbecue meat plus hampers and breakfast all available

Seeking a nature-filled getaway with a few added luxuries? Find your way to Belan Bluebell Woods, a family-friendly site in the tiny Powys hamlet of Cwmbelan, in a secluded wildflower meadow on a 60-acre farm.

The site is chilled-out in the best way: it’s off-grid so digital detoxes are pretty much a requirement during stays, and each pitch has its own firepit and log seating along with a private compost loo (cleaned every day and kitted out with loo roll and sanitiser). There are a couple of shower shacks on site too, and they're only shared between a handful of guests so there shouldn't be any need to queue.

The farm has plenty of paths heading off through woodlands and moorlands – some with spectacular views towards the Cambrian mountains.

Guests are well served when it comes to eats, with locally sourced barbecue meat, picnic hampers, lunch hampers and breakfast butties available if required (order these as an extra when booking your pitch). The folk on site are always happy to make recommendations for local bites and drinks too. Llanidloes (a hive for independent retailers) is three and a half miles away; several footpaths lead to town directly from the farm.

Guests have access to composting toilets (one for the exclusive use of each pitch) and a well-stocked washing-up area with tea towels and washing-up liquid. No need to lug water around though: the thoughtful folk here will bring it over to you. In addition, a pizza oven and communal firepit are available; paddleboards can also be hired through the site.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Minimum spacing of 6 metres between pitches.

The park caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality flashlight with them as parts of the park are unlit.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Due to the hilly nature of the site, it is only suitable for tents.

Coronavirus update: unfortunately the site is currently unable to provide hampers.

    Lovely site with very accommodating owners, dark skies and clean facilities.

    We came to sit quietly, make dinner round a campfire and chill out and that is exactly what we achieved. Plenty of dog walks locally as well as further afield and loads to do in the immediate area for both the intrepid and the less so.

    As my brothers and I usually go properly wild camping, this was absolutely amazing. Heated showers and a fridge/freezer? Luxury! Can't recommend it enough.

    Fabulous watching the red kites circling around and periodically diving for their dinner in the same field that you're camping in too :-)

    Disliked: 

    Gambled and lost on the weather a bit. Suzi isn't wrong - they're quite high above sea level. Don't underestimate that and check the wind direction forecast when pitching your tent.

From the manager...

Hi! Thanks so much for taking the time to review us!
I’m glad you had a lovely time & enjoyed yourselves even though the weather was difficult!
Do come again& I’ll make sure I order sunshine :-)

    I came to stay here with my 14 year old daughter and her friend for 2 nights. I was a bit worried that they may not enjoy camping, being teenagers, but they loved it and said it was just an amazing site. They especially loved the lambs in the nearby field and the horses.

    This is the nicest campsite that I have stayed at. It was beautiful! Peaceful, clean, and a lovely location. The facilities were great, compost toilet, shower with hot water, washing up facilities, a fridge and freezer in the shed, your own fire pit and sitting area.

    Suzi was very welcoming, accommodating and friendly.

    I would love to return here and to stay longer, as I’d like do some walking and explore more of this lovely area.

    Suzie, Joe & sons are warm and friendly and have created a cosy camping spot in the Cambrian mountains. Each of the pitches has a firepit, personal loo, are spatially generous & surrounded by wild grass. The gas fired showers are hot and there are facilities for food storage, charging electronics etc. The site is locatied nearby to many activities, walks and amazing scenery. If you can't live without your phone there is strong 4G signal. Suzie is great with the kids providing activites such as bubbles and sheep feeding activites. Site is peaceful and exceptionally clean. We really enjoyed our stay, and our daughter loved the nightly ritual of toasting the complementary marshmellows over the fire! Great value for money, would recommend in a heartbeat, thanks Suzie, Joe & Co!

    Location - Set in the most picturesque setting, with good access to an array of activities, trails, local amenities and great places to eat! (Suzi and Joe have lots of helpful recommendations)

    The Campsite - Camping at its best!
    - Well spaced pitches in a meadow with your pitch area well maintained.
    - Wild Camping
    - Firepits
    - No cars allowed next to pitches, a real highlight when you have two little people exploring!
    - Fantastic walking right from your tent!

    Everything! Very quiet site with friendly owners who couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The kids loved meeting the animals, blowing giant bubbles and feeding the sheep. The local nesting red kites kept the kids entertained for hours trying to get them to eat some bacon. Such a beautiful place to be!

Directions


From Newtown bypass, follow your satnav along the A470 towards SY18 6QL. Take the second turn into Cwmbelan (see sharp left turn up hill) and follow the road up. Then, ignore your satnatv and turn right, following the bend around to the left. You will then see the site signposted to the right. Continue over the cattle grid and follow the drive up the hill.

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

The site’s set up to have a minimal impact on wildlife, so maintain the theme by getting closer to some of the region's impressive birds of prey at the red kite feeding station 20 minutes' drive away in Rhayader, and at the Dyfi Osprey project 45 minutes away on the edge of Snowdonia National Park.

The Cambrian mountains make a splendid setting for lengthy hikes and mountain bike expeditions, and there are more scenic explores to be had in the Elan Valley (half an hour) and Hafren Forest (35 minutes). For water-based adventures it's a mere 15 minutes to Clywedog dam (the tallest concrete dam in the United Kingdom) and its reservoir for sailing and paddleboarding, or you can seek out the source of the River Severn (20 minutes away in Plynlimon) in for wild swims.

Don’t ignore proximity to seaside havens either… it’s 45 minutes to Aberystwyth and its museum, funicular and Vale of Rheidol Railway, and 50 minutes to the resort village of Borth, where there’s a pretty beach, a beachfront pub and an ice cream parlour for treats.

Must see

  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (16.7 miles)
  • Vale of Rheidol Railway (Aberystwyth) (21.9 miles)
  • Powis Castle & Garden (23.0 miles)
