The best campsites in Mid Wales

Dramatic mountains, lush green valleys, enchanting rivers and mighty lakes – Mid Wales is infused with the kind of mystical natural wonder one mind expect to find in a Tolkein tale. As with most geographic regions, it’s boundaries are not set in stone, however the general consensus has it stretching Brecon Beacons in the south to the lower fringes of the Snowdonia National Park in the north, while east to west, Mid Wales spans the Welsh Border right through to the far coast of Cardigan Bay. It is Wales' largest region, hosting its largest county in Powys and encompassing two of its national parks. As one can imagine then, Mid Wales is prime camping country with everything from hidden hillside retreats to spacious meadow clearings available to pitch up your tent.

So whether you’re looking for luxury or just a humble plot to plonk your tent, you’ll find the destination of your dreams in our guide to the best campsites in Mid Wales.

Tent camping in Mid Wales

Mid Wales is a mecca for campers and outdoor adventurists, drawn to its staggering natural beauty that boasts the best of sea, mountains and woodland. Thankfully the camping facilities are more than up to scratch. For pitch-up purists who believe in old-school tent camping, Mid Wales is a delight, not least because the huge commercial holiday parks (modelled on US-style trailer parks) are less ubiquitous than in other parts of Wales – although heading towards the coast will present more options for caravans and motorhomes. Besides being suited to rallies and tourers, these more developed enterprises also tend to feature static homes (sometimes called mobile homes) as well as chalets, fully-equipped with proper beds, cooking facilities and proper flush toilets. The swankiest may feature an onsite bar or restaurant, games rooms, kid's club, disco and even a swimming pool. 

But for those of us who prefer canvas to caravans, there are plenty of traditional, independent tent camping spots in Mid Wales. These classic campsites in Mid Wales are as diverse as the landscape, with a range of facilities and setups. Where to pitch is a key consideration for any camper and while many of the more established players offer set pitches to accommodate tents of different dimensions, most small-scale campsites (particularly campsites on farms) allow campers to pitch wherever they like. As for facilities, these can range from the bourgeois to the basic, with compost toilets and eco showers common. Many sites also offer some form of communal hub where campers can cook, play games and socialise. Most importantly, the majority of campsites in Mid Wales permit campfires – a crucial component for any campsite joining the coveted Hipcamp collection. If you’re still looking for a campsite that fits your wish-list, use the use the “Refine Search” feature to customise your search and filter by a range of these must-haves for your perfect camping getaway.

Glamping in Mid Wales

While classic camping will always be the backbone of our collection, glamping continues to grow in popularity every season. The UK can lay claim to some of the world’s first proper glamping sites, with scores of pioneering proprietors offering luxury accommodation in amazing settings before the term was even coined. As glamping has become a firm fixture of the UK holiday landscape, there is now a whole range of weird and wonderful glamping accommodation on offer, from UFOs and double decker buses, to converted horsesboxes and even glamping galleon ships. The trend continues unabated with new glampsites springing up across the British Isles all the time, and glamping in Mid Wales is no exception. This vast region boasts luxury in abundance for those who prefer an altogether more sumptuous sojourn.

While camping purists might scoff at the thought of not pitching their own tent, four dependable walls and a sturdy roof means the reliably unreliable British weather need not be a concern. Pods, shepherds huts and treehouses are the cosiest of abodes for an autumn or winter getaway, while airstreams, retro caravans and gypsy wagons are similarly suited to whatever the elements can muster.

It isn’t just pampered camping novices who are eschewing camping for glamping. With its miles of scenic routes to stroll and mountains to scale, Mid Wales is a magnet for walkers. For anyone with notions of taking on the Black Mountains or the undulating slopes of the Wye Valley, travelling light is essential. Without cumbersome camping gear to lug and tents to disentangle, a readymade bell tent, yurt or safari tent is ideal for ramblers. Proper beds, bedding and cooking utensils are usually included, while luxury extras like hampers filled with local produce can also be arranged. And if there’s a better way to soak away the sores of an epic walk than sipping champagne in your own private hot tub, we’re yet to hear of it. So whether you’re looking for a romantic retreat in Radnorshire, a luxury lodge near Llandysul, or a cabin on Cardigan Bay, we’re confident you’ll find some of the best glampsites in Mid Wales in our guide.
