 I'm just back from a 2 week break and can't wait to go back in September. What a little gem of a site. All facilities kept immaculately clean at all times. The campers kitchen was a god sent with microwaves, kettle, toaster, fridge freezer and seating. The easy relaxed atmosphere of the running of site only adds to the pleasure of your stay. Cannot fault the owners Janet and Andrew who go out of their way to help in anyway possible. The site itself is very well maintained and the relaxed lay out great. There's a playground for the kiddies, plenty of play area for ball games and of course the shallow water running through the site. It made me smile watching the kids enjoying the water. All this at a bargain price. The village has everything you could want and more. Plenty of places to eat, the travelers rest being a personal favorite for breakfast.

 This was our first visit to Dol Llys and we found it to be a great experience, and received a very warm welcome from Janet and Andrew. We were visiting relatives in the Area and it was a good base to explore the beautiful locality. The site is lovely, has excellent facilities which were clean and very well maintained. It was great to be able to get so close to the river if you wanted to and the owners allow open fires on the riverbank which on a summers evening would be great. Llanidloes Town is a 15 minute walk away and we completed a number of walks from the Farm without having to move our Motorhome - so relaxing! We will definitely be back soon.

Reviewer: Paultheplumber 1 review from this member

 Just spent a fantastic few days here over Easter; we were a group of 2 families in tents. The site is absolutely spotless, the facilities are both excellent and well maintained. The owners were very helpful and even managed to accommodate a friend who booked last minute to come and stay with us in his motor home for a night. The play area for the kids is great, the river is also a massive plus point, it's fish able but don't expect a massive haul. The only thing I would have liked to have seen (although I know it would be hard work and I'm being picky) is a farm shop, nothing OTT just basic locally produced dairy goods. Overall very happy with our stay and we will definitely be returning. Thank you 😊

 Beautiful site with well maintained facilities.

Toilets and showers that were regularly cleaned and adequate to the size of the site.

Nearby river is a lovely spot for fun times for the children and the swimmers.

Owners with sons were friendly and make you feel welcomed and relaxed.

I would like to suggest a few improvements such as more swings for the kids in the play area and recycling facilities.

We have enjoyed our visit on bank holiday weekend and will definitely visit again.

 I chose this campsite because it had fishing, had a river, allowed campfires, boasted good showers and a children's play area, and was a working farm.

All this was true, but none of it met the expectations I had.

The good part: the people are nice, the price isn't too much, the showers are warm, fishing on the river is free, the wood they sell is a generous quantity for 5, the site is a good size without being either too large or too small, the pot-washing room is a good size with three sinks and plenty of hot water, and there isn't too much fuss about exactly where you pitch your tent. The campsite is also within a few minutes' drive of a lovely little town, Llanidloes (which is pronounced clanitlois, so I'm told), and a huge lake/forest area, both of which are stunningly beautiful.

The less-good part: the river is swift and overfished, so no one was catching a thing in that stretch of water, and we are used to fishing with poles which are useless when there's no part that's slow and deep; the fact that it's a working farm seems neither here nor there because they don't sell any of their products to campers like other farm-camping I've done, so no fresh sausages, burgers, or eggs; the showers are warm with good pressure, but they cost 20p for 3 minutes (which is plenty of time, actually); and most annoying of all, even though we camped right on the river (which gave me nightmares of getting flooded out, a dream that nearly came true after 8 hours of rain one night), I could still hear cars driving throughout the night on the A70, thus I was disappointed that I couldn't really get the peace and quiet of the countryside.

This being said, there are two things I want to highlight: the first is the fact that there is a campers' room with microwave, fridge/freezer, kettle, and toaster, so you could in fact camp there without owning any cooking equipment, and this was a very welcome refuge on the day that rained so much; the second is that the farmer was checking on the river throughout the night when it rained so hard, and though I didn't know he was doing this, I think it bears saying that he's looking out for the height of the river when it's obvious that flooding is a possibility.

 Great campsite! Site busy but didn't have to wait for toilets/ showers. Several new, large wet rooms which were great.

Very spacious and relaxed atmosphere. No restrictions on arrival and departure times.

Particularly liked the campers kitchen. Well equipped with seating, microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge freezer etc!

Fishing on the River Severn on site.

Had great but strenuous walk to the source of the Severn, well worth it.

Close to the village and all its amenities. Will definitely be back.

 My family and I (2 adults and 3 children) had an amazing week at Dol-llys. The site was beautiful in the sunshine and very well kept, well cut grass and very tidy. The river running through the site was the highlight and we spent many hours either having fun in it or having camp-fires on its banks in the evenings.

The owners, who were lovely and very helpful, booked us in and said we could camp where we pleased, so there were no set pitches and we were allowed to spread out and not worry about our neighbours.

We bought a few bags of logs from the farm (5 for a good size bag) to burn on the camp-fire which was great, they even delivered them down to us.

The facilities were also super, band new heated wet rooms with a shower, sink and toilet (VERY SMART), and washing up room plus a campers kitchen with a good sized fridge/freezer. The other bits and bobs such as toaster, microwave and kettle were great, ideal I can imagine if the weather happened to be bad.

Llanidloes itself is a lovely little town, we walked along the farm's fields to get to it which was a lovely change from the road. There is all you need including a spar and coop, butchers, veg store and lots of nice pubs and restaurants including a great chippy!

We definitely will be returning very soon this summer hopefully and bringing our friends with us!

Reviewer: Nicpink 4 reviews from this member

 Love this place. It's perfect. Location/setting is stunning, with the added bonus of being a working farm - my kids love seeing the animals.

The toilet block is relatively new, with plenty of wet rooms with showers and additional toilet block (showers are 20p for 3 mins, takes 20ps and 1 coins). Very clean. Wash up block fabulous too. They also provide a campers kitchen with microwave, fridge and kettle and somewhere to sit/dine if you wish.

Owners are lovely, lots of local knowledge and tips on places to eat or visit.

The river is a wonderful extra, my kids love paddling and fishing in it. We've even had a fire on the bank and eaten our fish and chips next to it late in the evening.

There's a simple play area for children, though the owner did tell me they had plans to update their equipment this year.

The access road is a bit narrow and there are passing points so it can be a bit scary with a big caravan, but on saying that, it's so quiet, we've only met an oncoming vehicle once in the three years we' e been visiting this site.

The caravan field is a little way down from the showers, with the tent field being closest, but I guess this was planned on the basis that many caravans have their own loo and shower whereas most tents don't. I don't mind the stroll to the loos, it's so beautiful there it's nice to just enjoy the walk.

Altogether a 10 star site.

 We've revisited this site twice recently to celebrate my wife and I 40th birthdays with two different groups of friends.

We've been before so we knew all our friends would love it and they were not disappointed.

We've had group football matches with other campers; children playing in the river; fishing and bottle feeding calves.

All of our friends are going to recommend it to their friends as it's such a chilled campsite.

The owners can't do enough for you and are extremely friendly, we simply love it!

 Great site in Mid Wales.

Site is on a working farm so be prepared for the usual animal movements and noises.

Site doesn't have a lot of hook-ups, so tents with electric might find it hard to find a pitch.

Very near to Llandiloes town centre, short walk or a drive.

Shower block looks very new, nice to see timers on the showers, know exactly how long your 20p will last.

Is about 1 hour drive to Aberyswyth and 1 1/2 hours drive to Hereford.
