Follow the marked route across our farm fields and into the woodland. Bird watching, wildlife watching, sheep watching or maybe even deer watching - take your pick! There will be directions in your pod when you arrive. It's the perfect way to refresh your energy reserves, and we often head there ourselves as it's a truly magical spot!
Space and fresh air are key at Powys Pods, and there are acres and acres of open access hill land waiting to be explored just be stepping out of your camping pod or tent. Follow our maps for some suggested routes (see the Local Walks page here), from a short stroll to an all day trek, so you really can get out and explore. Enjoy the spectacular views, the open skies and the fresh air - you can truly escape it all.
You can easily join up with the Hay-on-Wye to Kington section of The Offa's Dyke Path by walking a few miles over Newchurch Hill next to the campsite, where you can have tea, coffee and biscuits and Newchurch Church before heading along the route - why not take the Kington route and stop at The Royal Oak in Gladestry for food, or the Hay-on-Wye route and take in some more of the spectacular views?
If you fancy taking in the scenery on horseback book yourself a ride at Bryngwyn Riding Stables, just a mile from the campsite, where you will also find a Riding for the Disabled (RDA) group.
cycle rides, mountain biking & The radnor ring
Bring your bikes or hire one locally, take in the fresh air with a meander along our lanes and join up with The Radnor Ring, or for a faster pace adventure along the all-vehicle track that crosses the local hillside.
Have you tried Geocaching - the World's largest treasure hunt? At the moment there are a few geocaches in the area, but we would love to add more - why not do some research and add your own for future campers to find?
