The Pines Caravan Park
A little history…The Pines Caravan Park exists thanks to Dr. Beeching’s railway cuts in the 1960s. Caravans on the lower level are on the site of the old railway line, with the Park owner’s accommodation being Doldowlod Station master’s house and also the ticket office.
Accessible from your caravan, a few steps brings you to a walk along the bank of the River Wye, ideal for your morning stroll especially if you have 4 legged friends. Watch the dippers in the river, keep your eye open for the heron, and if you’re really lucky, maybe a kingfisher or even an otter, all have been spotted here. Woodpeckers are around on the park too with plenty of Red Kites flying overhead. The Kite Feeding Centre is only 3 miles away, at Gigrin Farm near Rhayader.
A small caravan park with only 30 caravans, 10 on the lower level (the old railway line of course) and 20 on the upper level, it is a peaceful, friendly place to spend your holidays.
Available for hire from Mid-March to late October are 5 caravans, all are well equipped, and vary in size from a small 2 bedroomed van to a larger one with 3 bedrooms sleeping 6 (or 8 if you are happy to use the sofa bed in the lounge) Duvets and pillows are provided, and if bed linen is also hired, the beds will be made up for you ready for you to get straight into enjoying your stay. We specialise in short breaks, with a minimum of just 2 nights stay (except during the very busy week of the Royal Welsh Show) Details and prices are available on our web-site.
The majority of the caravans here are privately owned with owners enjoying a longer holiday season, 1stJanuary to 30thNovember. There are often ‘vans for sale, please check the web-site, or contact us for more information or to arrange a viewing.
