 An exceptionally neat and well laid out site with tarmac roads, good hard standings and neat grass in between.

We enjoyed driving through the valleys and over the mountain roads. Lots of good walking and cycling routes.

All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were in the last stages of Covid restrictions so could not use the toilets and other facilities. I suspect they would have been as immaculate as the rest of the site.

The site was very popular with motor homes but not so many caravans. Lovely grass tent pitches by the River Wye.

 Just what the doctor ordered for us, wonderful week in Rhyadder, campsite central for everything we did, hill walking etc.

Beautiful scenery on the side of the river Wye with new facilities. We heard the owls hooting at night in between the occasional juggernauts going along the A470.

All in all we had a lovely weeks holiday on this site, thank you so much for your friendly assistance.

 Newly laid out and refurbished site, taken over by the Camping and Caravan Club. We stayed in our touring caravan on a Super Service pitch with drainage and water. Wardens could not have been more welcoming and helpful.

Site was spotless and very well laid out to be Covid 19 compliant.

Only drawback. Drainage on the grass part of the hardstanding is appalling and whilst the site is bounded on one side by the River Wye, on the other side there is the A470. I had to wear ear plugs as the road is busy with heavy goods vehicles all through the night.

 Lovely site, friendly staff and excellent facilities.

Good location to town.

Only thing we werenít aware of was awnings have to go on hard standing. It wasnít easy to put pegs in and if your using awning for extra sleeping space itís not ideal!

The gravel did damage the ground sheet. Luckily we had carpet and good quality air bed.

 Lovely site in beautiful setting and a good base to explore this part of Wales. Level pitches on terraces. 5 mins walk into town and pubs/shops etc. We visited during Covid so on-site facilities block was closed (hence 8/10 marking).

Staff were helpful & friendly and we had no concerns as to the Covid safety measures implemented on site. Covid unfortunately also meant that many of the local amenities/ attractions were closed or only open intermittently.

Easy access to the cycle trail to the Elan Valley and the dams/reservoirs.

 Booked a few days beforehand. Was having a couple of days riding the back roads of south and central wales on my motorcycle. I had a one man tent with no hook up and my trusty steed.

A warm welcome. Great shower block. Great washing facilities and a 5 minute walk to central Rhayader.

The noise from the main road does travel across the site and I am a light sleeper. Large trucks haul down the road around 4:30 in the morning. But on balance. I'd rather be here than stuck up in the countryside with no pubs/eateries in walking distance.

Am trying to book again for this weekend. But it appears fully booked. BAH!

 The touring part of the site was being updated to a very high standard and because of that not all pitches were available however, very impressed with the the work completed, by the time you read this it should be completed.

Excellent facilities, nice location just a short walk into Rhayader where there are plenty of pubs and a very good Fish & Chip shop, some noise from the nearby A470, but I enjoyed my short stay there and would definitely return.

 Thanks to Mike and Sarah who let me stay at the Wyeside campsite recently even though it was still officially closed during upgrading work. I had cycled down from Dolgellau on route 8 that day, was tired and suffering from pannier malfunction, and I no longer had the legs to look for an alternative site, so the offer was welcome. The next day, Mike helped with emergency repairs to the pannier rack.

As usual, the campsite was immaculate, and all pitches well set up and widely spaced. The site is one of the best located in Wales: my tiny tent looked out directly onto the clear waters of the River Wye.

Looking forward to returning when current upgrading work is completed. They welcome cyclists and backpackers.

Highly recommended: Within 5 minutesí walk from the cafes shops and restaurants of the town, but peaceful and calm.

 I stayed a few days on a grass pitch with no EHU. The field is big so if you're not using EHU you have plenty of choice where to pitch up, limited only by some uneven ground and the area next to the River Wye getting soft after bad weather. The water points on the field appeared to be for both fresh and grey water; drainage was slow.

The staff were always polite and friendly. The facilities block next to the field was a bit run down, I suspect a legacy of the previous owners and the protracted transfer to the C&CC. Over my visits I could see things slowly getting sorted out and it appears that a big overhaul is taking place this winter - I hope they don't replace the proper showers with the push-button water-saver variety you usually get.

Mobile (2 & 3G) and radio (DAB) reception was good but the wi-fi erratic. The site is right next to the A470 so traffic noise was an issue during the day and getting out of the site could be a bit hairy due to vehicles coming around the corner from Rhayader quite fast. There's also not a great deal of space to park up at reception.

A public footpath runs through the field and takes you into Rhayader via a choice of routes; there are some nice scenic paths along the Wye at various points around the town. There's a small museum and a good selection of local stores and eating places.

Nearby attractions include the Elan valley, a couple of red kite feeding stations (my favourite being the Bwlch Nant yr Arian forestry site about 30-40 minutes away, due to its walking trails, views and coffee shop/restaurant) and Llandrindod Wells.

Due to the location you get a greater variety of camping types, including bikers, cyclists and off-roaders with tents of all shapes and sizes, which makes a nice change to the usual car-park-like monotony of motorhomes and caravans. Unfortunately the upcoming refurbishment looks like it's adding a lot of hardstanding pitches to the field which I worry might spoil things.

 Easy to find and very convenient for the pubs and shops of the town. A bit noisy due to its location next to the main road. The staff are always friendly and helpful.

Toilet and shower facilities are clean and tidy with plenty of hot water (non-metered showers). The adjacent laundry room is useful to have.

The site is very convenient for exploring the Elan Valley and for Sustrans Lon Las Cymru and Lon Cambria cycle routes (NCN 81 and 8).

I have stayed here several times while cycle touring and have always had a good experience.
