The river Irfon

General

  • Family-friendly, dog-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 dive in 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 (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.

    BBQ facilities.
    Level pitches.

    Disliked: 

    Dated and cold toilet block making use of showers unpleasant especially as you have to pay 50p for the privilege.
    Too many do and don't notices everywhere with threats of being asked to leave if you don't comply.

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback, alway useful, especially as it is our first season as owners. We are glad you found the bbq area useful and enjoyed the levelness of the site for easy pitching. We are aware that the shower block is perfectly functional but dated, we intend to address this in due course. We were not aware that any of our signs/general site rules would cause any offence, we will review and amend.

    Excellent location for exploring mid Wales and the Elan Valley

    Hotel at the end of the drive serves very good food, and nice to sit outside for a drink in the summer evenings

    Owners of the campsite very welcoming and friendly.

    Disliked: 

    We booked on the bank holiday weekend, and ended up next to a group of about 30 adults and kids, who seemed to more of less take over the site, music from morning to night, and somewhat ruined a last relaxing quiet bank holiday of the year.

From the manager...

Yes it was a very busy bank holiday weekend.

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 (17.2 miles)
  • National Showcaves of Wales (20.1 miles)
  • Brecon Mountain Railway (23.3 miles)
