Why stay here ...

A gem of a site in a lovely setting, lost in Mid Wales between Snowdonia and old Montgomeryshire. Gwern-y-Bwlch Club Site features terraced pitches, some with splendid views across the valley. You'll soon find the pace of life slows to a relaxed stroll in this part of Wales. The caravan park is an ideal base for country pursuits like birdwatching or fishing. Don't forget your binoculars - the RSPB has reserves at Lake Vyrnwy and Ynys-Hir. A conservationist's paradise, with a bird hide and feeding station on site - watch out for the red kite in the area.

Gwern-y-Bwlch Club Site has proved ideal for anglers, who often try their luck at the Llyn Clywedog reservoir, or in the Dyfi River. If you fancy sea fishing you can book trips from the harbours of Aberystwyth or Aberdyfi. Walkers will find the Ffordd Glyndwr long distance footpath passes the caravan site. Further walking is available through the local woodland of Llanbrynmair that was developed by the Forestry Commission.

Please note: This site does not have a toilet block. The maximum outfit length we can accept on this site is 8 metres.

Walking notes:

The dog walk makes a pleasant evening stroll, but beware of slippery banks near the stream. There are also walks trough the nearby forest, following extensive marked trials, starting half a mile from the site taking the lane north. You can also join the 135 mile long Glyndwr’s Way through the open moorlands, farmlands and forests of mid-Wales.

Supermarket notes:

LLanbrynmair Village (2 miles) has a small general store, and Carno (6 miles East) has a Spar and Post Office. The nearest town is Machynlleth (10 miles), which has a good range of shops, including Spar and Co-op supermarkets that are open until 8.00pm.

Little gem

Lovely site. Very peaceful. Lovely views. The wardens were really lovely and helpful. Very dog friendly with two dog walks and plenty of ‘poo’ bins. No shower or toilets, but we didn’t need that. Plenty of facilities for water, waste etc dotted about the site. It’s a tiered site, so maybe not for the less mobile, but it does offer more privacy than usual. The only down side is that there is not much around the site in the way of shops / cafe / meals. Definitely need to use your car to get around. However, if you want a quiet peaceful break, this is highly recommended.

A hidden hideaway

We booked onto this site for three nights as it was featured on the clubs promotions of £15 per night. What a delightful time we had. If you are the type of camper that is happy to not have all the mod cons of a fully equipped site then this this gem is worth a visit. On a steep hill with pitches set out on several levels with lovely views over to the hills. The scenery in this part of Wales is breathtaking and if you like walking and getting away from it all then you will love it here. Close by the lovely seaside town of Aberdovey is worth a visit and day at the beach weather permitting. Has a dog friendly beach too. The wardens were very helpful and friendly. Will definitely going back.

Peaceful BH Site

A fabulously peaceful bolthole for a bank holiday weekend. Started well with a great welcome from the wardens Pete and Janet. The site is tiered and the site road winds back and forth between the tiers. Wonderful views across the valley from most of the pitches. It definitely helps if you have a mover so you can pitch back to front. Plenty of service points and a lovely dog walk Ann’s all for £15.00 a night for two adults BH weekend.

Brilliant May bank holiday

We stayed for the first May bank holiday in our campervan. Returning after 10 years last time in a caravan. Site just as lovely as we remembered lots of birds about. Wardens were brilliant hoping to return soon xx

Nice!

Stayed for Easter break. £15 value site without toilet block which suits us. Three service points which is excellent for the size of the site. Good views from most pitches. Great wardens, friendly and welcoming, two of the best l have known in 25 yrs of membership. The only downside is the lack of a supermarket within 20 odd miles, but if you are aware you can prepare for this. Great views scenery on the road to Dolgellau. Stay here, l don't think you will be disappointed.
