Why stay here ...

Barry and Elaine welcome you to Glanverniew.  Our CL is in a peaceful location and has two hard standing pitches and three grass pitches. All pitches are super pitches with grey water waste and elsan waste on each. There are separate taps for drinking water and for cleaning your toilet cassette.

The Smithy is located on the main A458 from Welshpool into mid Wales and is an ideal venue for a stop over or even for a longer stay. The Welshpool and Llainfair Light Railway is 2.5 miles for all "steam buffs". Lake Vyrnwy is a scenic drive from the CL. Welshpool Country and Western Festival is normally held in July each year. Glanservern Hall Gardens is only 8 miles and Welshpool Golf Club is 3.5 miles from the CL. Powis Castle is also in Welshpool.

A wonderful place

Barry and Elaine are truly the most wonderful hosts. They welcome you like old friends and are always on hand. The site and pitches are immaculate with each pitch having drinking water and grey waste disposal. After having 6 wonderful nights this was the best possible introduction to a CL site. We are first timers and this was our first trip. After the first night we had a problem with our car and Barry sorted us out with a local mechanic that sorted the problem. This went well beyond excellent customer service. Barry was glad to help, nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate to return here. We are very grateful Barry and Elaine it is a pleasure to know you. Until next time, sending you our best.

What a welcome!

This is a beautiful site. Met on arrival by owner who escorted us to the pitch. Lovely welcome who made us feel TRUELY welcome to his site. Pitch is first class with Chemical emptying, grey water and fresh water all on the pitch. These are super wide pitches. Grounds were immaculate and despite my fears of getting stuck on the grass, it was no problem for my 4.5 tonner and a firm reassurance from the owner, that he had a very big tractor should I require it. I did not and he knew this (lol). Close to Light Railway which you could hear in the distance, close to Welshpool if needed. Can not recommend this site highly enough, we will return here, I wish all CL owners took so much pride in their operations. Well done to Barry Thomas, a nicer man you could not meet! He even came off his phone to wish us Bon Voyage and thank us for our visit, even for just one night. Superb.

Great site

Just here for 2 night weekend. Large hardstanding or grass pitches with ehu, water, grey waste & toilet emptying on each pitch. Lovely , friendly welcome escorted to our pitch by the owner. We were allowed to pitch whichever way we preferred . Easy access from the road. Close to welshpool & many other local attractions. We have booked the welshpool & Llanfair steam railway which is 5 mins away. Lovely views from the site & only 30 mins from home. What a find !!!

Best appointed site we've ever stayed on!

As the heading says this is the best appointed site we've ever stayed on in our fifty years of caravanning. We had a level hard standing for the van, a large grassed area for the awning and another hard standing for the car. Added to that each pitch has its own Electric point, Water tap, Grey waste and Elsan point. Access is excellent, as are the views, and Mr Thomas was very helpful in explaining all the facilities and walks from the site and gave us leaflets for the interesting places in the area. We were only there for a few days as a break in our journey to South Wales but we'd most certainly go there again.
