 This is the second time we have stayed here, and is still the best site we have ever been to - if it suits you (it's not for everybody) it's everything you need and nothing you don't.

It's a long way from the nearest town Rhayader, over a fairly forbidding mountain road, but the hosts are lovely and the Riverside site is glorious.

No tents at the moment as the toilets and showers are closed, but we will be back as soon as we can.

 Tyllwyd campsite was absolutely gorgeous, I mean the weather helped but it truly was the perfect pitch for us. The pitch was big, right on the river side, secluded and a fire pit and picnic bench per pitch too!

The facilities were not open, but we were self contained so no biggy! The owners were great, nothing was too much of an ask, we even forgot butter and they gave us some of theirs!

Will definitely be returning, lovely little find.

 Beautiful situation. Tidy and quiet. Just what we wanted. We were happy being so close to the river, and watching the birds.

We will be back next year. The pitch was dry although it had been raining.

Reviewer: Neriss 1 review from this member

 Loved loved loved this campsite! Basic facilities but you have what you need to stay warm, clean, occupied and vaguely connected with the outside world.

Thereís plenty of fab days out for anyone of any age. The owners clearly run a farming business but were happy to help out where they could.

The main highlight for me was the location right in the middle of the Elan valley. Itís not silent but so peaceful. It really felt like getting back in touch with nature and the creatures and plants that we rely on.

I really got to spend some quality time with my family too which was really precious.

Canít recommend highly enough and will definitely return there in the future.

 Utopia in camp sites. Beside a bubbling brook, sun shining, mountains all around, camp fire alters, everything you could wish for.

And we had the site to our selves. We had to stay 2 nights, it was so perfect.

Reviewer: Lady of the lakes 31 reviews from this member

 This is one of those locations which you dream about but rarely find. Surrounded by mountains, by the side of a delightful stream, you could spend hours just sitting at one of the picnic benches watching the red kite overhead, the wagtails and redstarts by the river, or the hare in the fields opposite.

No TV, no phone, no newspapers - and, amazingly, very few midges during our stay - we must have struck lucky, because it was certainly the season for them!

We read reviews before we went so were not disappointed by the small toilet block - other than that the people who left on our first day swanned off with a nearly full toilet roll from the ladies, and it had not been replaced 24 hours later, and, contrary to information from other reviews, there was no hot water in the washing up area when we stayed -

but these are small inconveniences and I'm sure would have been resolved if I had torn myself away from the views long enough to call at the house, because the owners were very friendly and did say to shout if we wanted anything.

If you cross the road and head back towards the Elan valley a short way, there's a splendid walk up into the hills (part of the cycle network) but do cover your legs or use insect repellent - I did neither, and acquired some very thirsty large black insects on my legs.

The views get better the higher you go. For dog owners, please be aware that you will need to keep your dog on a lead all the time.

Sheep run free even on the roads, and pop up when you least expect them, so I would recommend a flexi-lead to give your dog risk-free exercise.

All in all a top rate site, good value at £15 inclusive of electric, and one to return to whenever we feel the need to escape into the slow lane.

Reviewer: Louey 7 reviews from this member

 I stayed here for two nights after passing several times in the past. The Location is wonderful, next to a small river and surrounded by fields and hills either side. Entry to the site was okay for my 6m campervan and all but one pitch would have been suitable.

I didn't use the hook up but it was available. The site has raised BBQs dotted around the site, great instead of using environmentally unfriendly disposables.

The toilet block is over the road from the fields, but the road is quiet and I never saw a speeding car or motorbike during my stay. There is one shower (free), and individual toilets for each sex. Hot water was always available in the washing up room.

The owner also runs a farm so might not always be available, but when they are they are extremely helpful - I was leant OS maps, suncream and given details of suitable mountain biking in the area.

The site is miles away from shops, pubs or restaurants. To me that is idyllic. For others this may meant that you need to be organised with your food and provisions.

My only gripe about the place are the midges, but you are next to a river in the summer so don't forget your repellents like I did. I will be make a return visit with my family in the near future.

 We visited this site in August to do a bike ride around the Elan Valley. There are ehu's and grass pitches and although the river was very high when we were there, there was no problem with sinking into any soft ground.

The facilities are just as described with one toilet for men and one toilet for women and one shower. There is a small basin in the toilet for washing which could cause a problem if there's a queue. It would be good to have a separate area for washing to prevent any embarrassing moments or more facilities although there were no problems when we were there. When we visited to reach the toilets we had to pass by a dog who was chained to a post nearby. Although it couldn't reach us it's barking was very intimidating.

The site itself was in a lovely location alongside the river with picnic tables and bbq/ firepits and a play area for children. Because of the weather and the time of year we had a few problems with the midges but they seemed to disappear at dusk so we enjoyed sitting by our fire looking up at the stars. We thought the site was great and would go back again.

 When you want a quiet and lonely place, whithout phone, without people, with great landscape, it's perfect. I fall in love with the valley and stayed three very nice days there, with the charming sound of the river and the birds, and the colors of the falling sun on the hill on the other side of the river.

Shower is limited but ok. There are barbecues and tables in the field.

Reviewer: Debsroly 4 reviews from this member

 We went to Wales over the Easter break, but decided not to book in advance as previous experience suggested there perhaps may be a chance of it chucking it down for a fair bit of the time, so we were please to get a site with EHU (£15 pn)when we rang a couple of days before we were due to go.

Never having been to the Elan Valley, we followed the instructions by the owner to follow the mountain road out of Rhayader to Aberystwyth. Middle of nowhere was a correct discription - I wouldn't recommend a large motorhome or towing caravan on this road, especially after dark. However the site was stunning, riverside, mountains and lots of sheep nearby (not on the camping field). Oddly, the shower and loos were next to the farmhouse, which meant crossing the road (quite a few motorbikes using it over the Bank holiday) so care needed.

We were the only motorhome on there, with some tents nearby and using the shower and 2 toilets did not pose a problem at all, but I wouldn't like to be waiting for these minimal conveniences when the site was busy!

We went a walk up into the hills/mountains? at the back of the site, saw many red kites, drove to Devils Bridge (terrible for the legs - many many steep steps), woodland walks and a wonderful Sunday roast at the George Borrow Hotel for about £8 each. Hafod, a country estate type place near Devils Bridge has marked walks with a lovely one along the river, free parking too. Elan valley is marvellous for walks, we stopped by the second dam which has minimal parking, but is very picturesque. There is parking at the visitor centre (£2) but the walk from there along the reservoir wasn't quite so pretty.

All said, great place, great site (isolated) and even the weather was kind!
