Sychpwll Centre: 5 acre meadow

General

  • Hosted eco-friendly site surrounded by spectacular Powys countryside
  • Eco buildings surrounded by a wildflower camping meadow
  • Straw-bale kitchen, wooden play area, toilets and showers

A rural retreat awaits at the peaceful Powys base of Sychpwll Centre, a walker's paradise in the Welsh countryside, two miles from the village of Llandrinio.

The centre houses a range of eco-friendly buildings, surrounded by a wildflower camping meadow. As the site backs onto the River Vyrnwy, both 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 guests will be within 30 minutes' drive of the market towns of Shrewsbury, Welshpool and Oswestry.

The site also has a toilet block with instant warm water and showers.

    Lovely, remote location with fantastic scenery and peaceful environment. The owners were amazing, so accommodating and helpful. The facilities were easily accessible and in great condition.
    An ideal place for children to roam and explore.
    The owners dog, who loves to play with children, made regular visits to our tent - which was a nice bonus to the visit.

    What a lovely campsite. We loved the ethos behind the set up with its strawbale buildings, reedbed sewage system. The campsite was relax and friendly and it was lovely to meet the owner and be told about the history of the site. It was a quiet and peaceful place to stay with a camp kitchen if you wanted. Good access to the river and surrounding hills.

    Loved this beautiful location, and the rustic natural feel of the campsite.
    Surrounded by nature and right by the river. So much space for everyone, you can have a big private space, or you can be closer to others if that’s what you prefer.
    Camp kitchen was great, something you don’t often see on a campsite.
    Access to fridge and freezer, plus a full kitchen with gas hob/oven, utensils, pots and pans.
    Good toilet/shower facilities. For those with kids there is a playground. Also canoes to hire .
    The owner Peter and his son seb were so friendly and helpful.
    I was shown around the day I arrived, and was told to ask if there was anything they could help with.
    Unfortunately on my last day I did need help. My car was having problems, I needed a mechanic asap. Peter called his local mechanic and took me to see him the following morning. Everything was sorted so I knew I could drive home safely.
    Can’t thank these lovely people enough.

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.
