Mid Wales

Mid Wales campsites make the perfect base for exploring this stunning area south of Denbighshire. Known as the “green heart of Wales”, the area extends west from the border with England, adjoining Shropshire, Hereford and Worcester.

This beautiful area has the lowest population density in Wales due to its mountainous landscape and twisting roads. The main towns near Mid-Wales campsites are Newtown, Brecon, Welshpool and Llandrindod Wells where you will find cafes and take-aways, old pubs, supermarkets and gift shops selling Welsh souvenirs.

Visiting Mid-Wales is about enjoying the great outdoors with endless opportunities for hiking, fell-walking, climbing, abseiling, mountain biking, kayaking and river rafting as part of a camping staycation. There are campsites in Mid-Wales close to Tintern Abbey, the scenic Wye Valley, the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons.

You can also find fully serviced pitches and modern campsites with hot tubs near pretty Ross-on-Wye and Hay-on-Wye which is the National Book Town of Wales. Visit during the annual Hay Festival and enjoy many readings, talks and book-signings by famous authors.

Camping in Mid-Wales Beauty Spots

Mid Wales is perfect for a camping holiday as it is mainly rural and in places quite mountainous. It’s popular for exploring by campervan or caravan as well as being a mecca for outdoor adventures, walking, camping, cycling and wildlife. It’s definitely a destination that will inspire you to take photographs as it is so scenic and beautiful.

To the south of the region, the Brecon Beacons National Park is prime for camping, hiking and outdoor recreation. It includes the Black Mountains, a beauty spot in their own right. Black Mountain (Twyn Llech) is situated right on the Welsh-English border. At 713m elevation it is quite a challenging hike and is the highest point south of Yorkshire’s Great Whernside.

Caving and pot-holing can be enjoyed from your nearby campsite or caravan park with electric hook-up in Powys. Ogof Agen Allwedd is one of the longest cave systems in Wales with 20 miles of connected caves. Ogof Craig a Fynnon is the best cave in the Mid-Wales area for stalactites and flowstone.

Hiking and camping on Offa’s Dyke

Offa’s Dyke is a 177-mile National Trail that runs along the border between England and Wales. It’s a great challenge for campers, fell runners and hikers wanting to explore Mid-Wales as it has superb views across the Welsh countryside. It follows an ancient earthwork and is named after the 8th century Anglo-Saxon King Offa ,who ordered it to be built. However, some parts appear to pre-date Roman times.
