This camping pod is ideal for families or groups of friends wanting a holiday in rural Wales, and it is also dog friendly and suitable for disabled users or guests with limited mobility. It is the largest of our three camping pods, and it offers a warm and insulated space with fitted lights for snuggling up to read your book in the evening, an oil filled heater for extra comfort, and electric sockets to keep all of those essential gadgets topped up. In warm weather, we'll also include an electric fan. You can hire camp beds (max 4 single beds) and additional inflatable mattress toppers, which offer a practical alternative to camping mats and airbeds, and you can also stow your bits and pieces underneath the bed (home from home really). The Bryn-Gwyn camping pod is situated adjacent to the car park, communal area and toilet/shower pods so everything you need is easily accessible. The outside decking area is a space to relax in and gaze at the open countryside by day and the stars by night, taking in the fresh air and peace and quiet. There is a sensor security light that illuminates the decking area, which can be switched on or off. The double doors are lockable from the inside and outside, and there is an inside blind that you can pull over the doorway for your privacy as well as a small rear window (also with a blind) and vents to aid ventilation. This camping pod is also dog friendly.
The pod is adjacent to the shared toilet/shower washroom pods and the shared kitchen area, where you will find two washing up sinks (with hot water), a worktop, and two kettles, toasters and electric twin-hob hot plates along with two picnic benches.

About Powys Pods
NearbyA mile down the road there's a horse riding centre (01497 851669). They offer half hour routes for kids and beginners and longer hacks for the more experienced. The local, heather-clad hills are covered in bridleways and it's a fantastic way to cover the ground. Also popular is a drive to the river Wye. Here you can hire canoes (07414 935965) and drift your way down stream, another great way to explore the area! For something a little more sedate, a drive to Hay-on-Wye leads to a wealth of good independent shops – particularly antique and book shops. The town also marks the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, another real hub for outdoor pursuits. The Elan Valley is also well worth a visit, as well as the surrounding towns on the Welsh Border.
Food & DrinkBBQs are permitted and there's a large brick BBQ available for use. The nearest pub, The Roast Ox (01497 851398), can be found at Painscastle (4 miles away) and there is also a good bar and restaurant at Rhosgoch Golf Club (3 miles; 01497 851251). For the maximum choice head to Hay-on-Wye, or refer to the more extensive list provided in your pod.
