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 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.

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.

A quiet few nights in the rain, with limited TV reception, no phone signal and no wifi ..

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Club Campsite
This is a picturesque site. Most pitches are overhung by trees which affect tv reception, limits phone signals and gives those loud drips on your van roof in the rain. It's a very steep site to walk up and down. Dog walk is excellent and very big (at top of site over the road). There is little to do walking from site. No facilities. WiFi hotspot at reception only. Worth a climb up the hill via the lane from site as there are some great views.

Peaceful site great wardens

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Club Campsite
Had six nights here when we arrived there wasn’t many pitches the warden suggested we could go on the pitches across the road to the other side which was okay, thought we would move in the morning when pitches came available woke up in the morning to just bird song so decided to stay where we were. The only downfall we decided to walk on the footpath to llanbrynmair nice walk except after going through esgair farm the farmer sent his 8 dogs down the lane after us and our dog, reported him to the police and council so be careful if you use it.

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Club Campsite
What an idyllic location, with great dog walk and views which make up for the lack of toilet block. A great stay, and we will be back again without question

Quiet and peaceful campsite with lovely stewards

Gwern-Y-Bwlch Club Campsite
The roads and the pitches are in different layers of the terrain. We felt that were in the mountains and in nature. It's a quiet and peaceful campsite with lovely stewards. The best campsite we've ever been to.
