About Gwerniago Farm Campsite

Gwerniago Farm is a place we keep on coming back to. It’s a must to visit at least once a year.

Near Machynlleth in the Dyfi Valley, the location has so many things to do:

Situated 3 miles from the town of Machynlleth on the Aberdyfi road. 15 minutes drive to the nearest beach. 10 minutes walk to the nearest shop and pub which serves food.

Hill at Gwerniago Farm
At the heart of the campsite is a hill with outcrops of rocks. A great place for children to play. They often make friends and it’s not uncommon to see large groups children running about the site. There’s also often a few rope swings around.

Pony rides can be arranged for smaller children.

The site itself has simple facilities, but just what’s needed.

Top tip: If it’s wet and you want to get wetter, visit the Bro Ddyfi Leisure Centre in Machynlleth. Swimming, waterslide, and warm showers.
