Located in the Marches just over the England/Wales border this is a little gem of a site. Made up of park homes at the top and touring down by the river it is a superb location. The pitches are a combination of grass and hard standing. The pitch we stayed on was fully serviced with electricity, water and a drain. He had a gravel side extension for awnings or a dry sitting area.
The facility block has underfloor heating and is really good. The shower cubicles are a good size with plenty of room for changes and hanging your clothes. Steve the warden (very helpful man, all wardens should be like this) explained that shower gel etc is all provided as is washing up liquid at the sinks, nice touch.
Presteigne is only about a mile away and there is a great footpath through the fields to get there, walking along the road could be quite dangerous.
Walking in this area is a must. There is direct access to a public footpath direct from the site. Cross the foot bridge over the river and you are in the fields.
Presteigne has all you need. There are a few pubs, cafes as well the obligatory small supermarket.
The Judges Lodgings is a museum that is well worth looking at. This is a museum and a there is a charge for entry. The courtroom is excellent as are the servants quarters in the cellar. There is an audio tour included in the price to help explain the fascinating history of this grand building. Check it out at www.thejudgeslodging.org.uk see photos below.
The Marches is a great area to visit with many small market towns to visit. The Elan Valley reservoirs are within an hours drive, a look around the visitor centre there will help explain how they get the water all the way to Birmingham.
To summarise, put this lovely clean site on
your must do list. You won’t be disappointed.
