Daisy Bank Touring Caravan Park is set within 7 acres of beautiful Powys countryside outside the village of Snead near Montgomery. The English border is to the east side of the village and the pretty town of Bishop’s Castle is only 2 miles away which is famous for its real ales. Montgomery, Welshpool and Ludlow are close by. Further afield: Shrewsbury, Wroxeter Roman City; Ironbridge and Telford.
All 55 of our campsite pitches are fully serviced (some sites call them "super pitches"). Each pitch has an electric hook-up, water tap, grey waste drain and in the Roundton and Camlad areas are provided with a TV aerial hook-up with lead (this plugs you into a booster system). The Meadow is better situated for natural TV reception.
We have 3 distinct touring areas:
Roundton - Ringed by mature trees and hedgerow, a birdwatchers paradise. Roundton consists of most level hard standings, some concrete, some gravel - ideal for motorhomes and large caravans. With mature shrub borders and some south facing pitches; it also offers complete shelter in stormy and windy weather, so is perfect for winter caravanning.
Camlad - By comparison, our Camlad area has a completely open aspect with superb south facing views over the Camlad Valley - more of an open parkland setting. Pitches here are mostly gravel hardstanding. Some pitches gently sloping, some with wheel pits for horizontal levelling. There is a level gravel hardstanding area for motorhomes.
The Meadow - Our newest area, opened in late summer 2003 and proving very popular. All pitches are gravel hardstandings and offer full services, except for tv aerial hook-ups. Normal tv reception is available, using a vertically polarised antenna. Please note, old type status aerials (horizontally polarised) will not be effective. This is an extremely open aspect with those Camlad valley views, as the screening hedgerows and shrubs are yet young!
We are committed to providing disability -friendly facilities here at Daisy Bank and are working towards that aim. Our new toilet, washrooms are completely disability friendly. One of the units has a wider door to accommodate wheelchair users. We welcome constructive criticism from our disabled guests. The park itself, however, has gravel roads. This is not so friendly for basic wheelchairs, which often have thin rimmed wheels. Motorised chairs, however, seem to cope better. Our reception building and information hut do need some adaptation for wheelchair access. We are constantly upgrading and improving access, so please talk to us about your needs and we promise to be honest about what we can and cannot provide. Please remember that improvements cost money, some take longer to accomplish than others.
Our facilities are clean, modern and well maintained. They consist of centrally heated wet rooms. Each room has a self draining shower area, toilet and washbasin/vanity unit. Couples can use these together as they would a personal bathroom. We also provide a laundry area and drying room.
For those who want to enjoy more of a glamping experience, why not stay in 1 of our camping pods. Loose all the hassle of carrying and putting up a tent and enjoy a break away in our pods which are connected to electricity and are ready for you to start your break away. Our camping pods are designed for comfort all year round so they are toasty warm in winter and light and airy in summer. The wood used in their construction is a naturally warm material and, for extra insulation, Daisy Bank camping pods have a layer of sheep’s wool inside the walls. An additional foil layer in the special roof material keeps Summer temperatures in check. Double-glazed, lockable French doors and window, reduce condensation and insulate the pod from noise. The small, high level window in the rear wall provides light and ventilation for the living space
We have our own 9 hole putting green which is free to all our customers. Balls and putters available in the information hut.
For your day to day needs, Harry Tuffins supermarket is situated in Churchstoke, one and a half miles from the site. It is a large complex offering most food items at reasonable prices, a post office, pound store, hairdresser, cafe, launderette and separate butcher. There is a market and car boot sale behind the store every Sunday.
For more specialist shopping we would suggest Ludlow or Shrewsbury (home of brother Cadfael). Incidentally, the new Bullring in Birmingham is only just over an hour's drive from here.
