If you’re seeking an escape from urban life, Penrhosmawr Holidays, a scenic family-friendly site on a working farmstead three miles from Machynlleth might be just what you need.
Penrhosmawr is a top spot for a return to nature: the site is less than 10 minutes’ drive from the edge of Snowdonia National Park, where you can hike, walk and cycle, have a go at loads of watersports, toss out a line at one of the fishing sites, or try out some more high-octane outdoor activities, like abseiling, canyoning and ziplining.
You won’t be lacking in nature back on site either – the farm has plenty of trees for kids to climb, streams to paddle in and acres of paths and woodlands to wander around. You can take it even further and go foraging for your own wood from the land around the farm for barbecues and campfires...
Busy days are an inevitably at Penrhosmawr, so make sure you’re well fed for your adventuring: start your day with a breakfast pack from the farm, then stay fuelled with supplies from Machynlleth throughout the day. In the evenings, fire up the barbecue or bag a table at one of the restaurants within five minutes of the site.
