Powys Pods is situated in an undiscovered part of rural Radnorshire, tucked away in the hills of Wales close to the Welsh-English border with Herefordshire. There are magnificent views across the valley and the open hills beyond, just waiting to be explored by foot, bike or on horseback.
We offer an alternative camping experience perfectly situated for exploring Powys, Mid Wales, the Brecon Beacons National Park, Hay-on-Wye, the Wye Valley and Hereford; and all within a couple of hours' drive of Birmingham, South Wales, Cardiff, Bristol and the M4 Corridor. During your stay the whole of Wales will be on your doorstep, from Snowdonia in the north to Pembrokeshire in the south, and from the seaside town of Aberystwyth, to Wales’ capital city, Cardiff.
We are also just a stone’s throw from some of the best places to visit in Wales. Hay-on-Wye the ‘Town of Books’, and site of the much acclaimed annual Hay Festival is just eight miles away, which marks the start of the Welsh summer season.
Hay-on-Wye also marks the northern tip of the 520 square mile Brecon Beacons National Park, with the town of Brecon itself twenty-five miles away. As well as this, we are less than twenty miles from Builth Wells and Llanelwedd, where the very well-known four-day Royal Welsh Agricultural Show is held every year in July. For cider lovers, the City of Hereford is just twenty-five miles away and the Spa town of Llandrindod Wells is also a forty minute drive from Powys Pods.
Also within a two-hour drive you can reach The Gower, Pembrokeshire, Aberystwyth, and Machynllyth on the southern edge of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. The National Cycle Network and the Offa's Dyke Path are within a few miles of the campsite, making us a perfect stop-over for walkers, ramblers and cyclists alike. So whether you want to be active during your break with us or just want to have a relaxing holiday, there really is something for everyone.
