Welshshire 

A little piece of paradise so close to the English border, you just can’t help but relax here. This might make it sound dull and boring but this couldn’t be further from the truth. From watersports to serious mountaineering, gentle strolls to lengthy hikes there’s much to see and do on your Campervan holiday in Wales. There is some great beer to sample too! 
 
It is also worth keeping an eye out for the annual festival held at the pubs which usually takes place on the August Bank Holiday weekend. They know how to throw a party round here and you’ll get a warm welcome all year round.

Things to do nearby 

Let's start with cycling because this one has us really puzzled. When you cycle round Lake Vyrnwy, there is some kind of eye trickery going on that makes you think you are going downhill the whole way round the lake……it doesn’t feel like it on the legs, you definitely can’t stop pedalling. We’ve not figured out yet if you go the other way round whether it feels like you are going uphill the whole way…..that just doesn’t sound as much fun. If you head to the lake then pop in for a drink at The Lake Vyrnwy Hotel and Spa – the view from the outdoor balcony is spectacular! 
Revolution Bike Park 
For those of you who like a bit more adrenaline in their cycling you’ll find the world renowned Revolution Bike Park in Llangynog village. They host annual competitions which are worth a watch whether you’re a fan or not! Either way we can fit the bike rack for you so that you can carry 3 adult bikes or 2 adult and 2 children’s bikes for your Campervan adventure. 
River Tanat 
Fishing is a plenty in this part of the world, for the more serious fisher then you’ll find some tips on types of fish and good spots here. You can also fish on stocked pools with these guys. 
Walking or Hiking 
If walking or hiking is more your venture then you really do have an unlimited choice. Here are just some of the routes that we would recommend: 
 
Leaving directly from the campsite  
 
Lake Vrynwy routes  
 
In the hills around Vyrnwy  
 
Around and about Lake Bala  
 
Water sports are also an option on both Bala and Vyrnwy with kayaking, windsurfing, sailing and white water rafting all available from both lakes.
