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.

Fantastic Views and Peaceful

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Caravan Club Site
We stayed here with a caravan and awning for 9 nights in August ( 2 adults, my teenage daughter and her friend and a dog). All the pitches are wonderfully spread out and other caravaners were friendly and relaxed too. The site is in the middle of nowhere which is perhaps why tv reception was not as some members expected. But for us the channels were adequate as we chose the site to get away from it all and admire the scenery… which this site exceeded our expectations in both its location and the relaxing atmosphere the wardens and layout provided. The dog walks, cleanliness, layout and the friendly wardens made our time on the site enjoyable. The site is central enough for stunning drives out to beaches, North Wales coast / Mountains and also visit quaint small Welsh towns close by too. There was enough around for our party to go out and about make the most of the sunshine in the afternoons. I would definitely recommend the Machynlleth to Pwhelli train journey too. I enjoyed the break so much I stayed for an additional week…all in all a great site to unwind, relax and do nothing but conveniently located in a stunning area for getting out and about when you are feeling energetic too.

Lovely August Bank Holiday break

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Caravan Club Site
We have just returned from three nights at this lovely site. We have visited before and its one of our favourites! The wardens are lovely and welcoming and the site is really well kept. No rows of caravans like a car park which isn't for us. Lots of separate pitches lots of trees and birdies just what we love! So much to do in the area. Really looking forward to our next visit! Many thanks

Disappointed

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Caravan Club Site
The wardens were friendly and welcoming. However the handbook stated that TV reception was good. When we tried to tune in we could only get channel 5. The site had two boosters on but the warden stated that since last years storms reception was not good and there was no way ITV could be received. She also said that there were too many leaves on the trees so that was the problem. We were also told that our 7.09mtr motorhome was too long for the pitches in the main site and we would have to use the annexe site across the road. This was fine quiet and secluded and a good dog walking area. I asked about footpaths in the are and she said they weren’t good and not many of them. Very true. My wife is not a good Walker and enjoys watching TV whilst away on holiday however she could not do this and totally spoilt the holiday. If the description in the handbook had been truthful about the TV reception then we wouldn’t have chosen the site. Very disappointed.

Beautiful location and lovely people.

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Caravan Club Site
The wardens on this site are fabulous, going above and beyond to help us out when we had trouble with our breakdown company who left us stranded. Beautiful location near to both beaches and mountain walks with some pitches having views across the hills. We will hopefully return again under better circumstances as the continued trouble with our breakdown provider spoiled what would have been a restful break. Thanks again for the help, it was greatly appreciated.

Wish we could have stayed longer!

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Caravan Club Site
Sadly, we were only able to stay 2 nights at this delightful, quiet and peaceful site, beautiful, natural and well designed to provide pitches with stunning views and access to well positioned service points. Wardens, Janet and Pete, not only offered us a exceptionally warm welcome but also were very helpful throughout our stay, especially with the need to repair a damaged wing mirror. Their local knowledge enabled us to enjoy a superb day out in the gorgeous Welsh countryside which was new to us. We will, certainly, return to this very special site and look forward to meeting up again with Buddy and Bobby.
