A gem of a site in a lovely setting, lost in Mid Wales between Snowdonia and old Montgomeryshire. Gwern-y-Bwlch Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

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.

Lovely short break

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Club Campsite
We only stayed for two night but what peaceful nights they were. The site is easy to find and access and the pitch was well sized. A welcoming reception by the owner gave us a choice of pitches. The site is close enough to Machynlleth for any shopping you may need and the road to Dolgellau is beautiful and the Sea at Barmouth isn't too far away. Would use this site again for sure.

The up's down's n damp bits of Wales

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Club Campsite
If you are a person that likes to explore and go Woww on every bend in the road. this might be a good base for you. Take your camera and clock up some memories. This site is more for, perhaps for 20's upwards. Dont stay on the main road and tourist spots , adventure and find the hidden beauty of wales. 2 Weeks and a thousand miles of adventures. This is your base not your holiday. Grab things you need as u travel, fill up when you see a station. I took almost 3000 magical photo's on this trip, shame I cant post some. Simple,,,,,, EXPLORE,,,,,

Great Site

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Club Campsite
Met like old friends by the lovely wardens so off to a great start. The site has no showers or toilets and is all the better for that. The waste areas are immaculate. The phone signal is really good so tethering is no problem. Can’t comment on TV or radio reception. For us the site is all about location, lots of wildlife reserves and of course the Mach Loop

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Club Campsite
Beautiful little site tucked away on the hillside. Its not your usual site with facilities etc, but for peace and quiet and a perfect dog walk on site, friendly staff and stunning location its hard to compare with others.

Great asset for the CC

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Club Campsite
Such an unusual site set amongst the typical deciduous woodland of this area. An excellent touring base for the myriad of beautiful lanes through woodland, forest, moorland and the coast. Several of the wonderful “Great Little Trains of Wales” are within reach, as the the two truly spectacular red kite feeding stations (Gigrin Farm and Nant yr Arian). The Dyfi Osprey Centre has more to offer than ospreys, including a nice cafe area and the Corris Craft Centre is well worth a lengthy visit, especially as it is the home of “King Arthur’s Labyrinth”, an adventure for all with any imagination - superb. We spent 12 nights at Gwern y Bwlch (having spent a similar amount of time here a few years back) and it is not enough to do the area justice. The site itself, set on a hill is most unusual and affords beautiful views for many of the pitches. Of course, this tiered layout does mean that walking to and or from service points may not be easy for those who are less able. Some of the pitches looked uneven so levelling blocks would be a good idea. The nearby road can be a little noisy through the day but we didn’t find it a problem at all. Some of the service point looked a little “tired” and could do with a bit of TLC from the Club soon. Most disappointing is that the site closes before Autumn really gets underway - the very time of year when this area is at its scenic best (not that this site is unique in this regard). Admittedly, the gradient of the roadway on the site may make it hazardous come the frosts but it is a real shame. Well worth a long stay.
