Alan Rogers Review

Smithy Park is set in four acres of landscaped grounds bordered by the River Severn and the Shropshire Union Canal, in the tranquil rolling countryside of central Wales. It does have 60 privately owned caravan holiday homes, but beyond these is a separate touring area which has the benefit of being closest to the river with the best views and a small picnic and seating area on the bank. This area has 26 fully serviced hardstanding pitches (16A electricity, water, waste water and satellite TV hook-ups). A timber chalet provides all the sanitary facilities, and is located in one corner of the touring area.

This is a well run site, which is under the same ownership as Westbrook Park, with a resident manager on site here. The village has two local pubs, a shop and Post Office, and a bus service – all within easy walking distance. American RVs are accepted with prior notice. Kite flying and cycling on the park are not permitted.

Facilities

The heated, timber-clad chalet building provides two good sized showers per sex, washbasins in cubicles, a family room doubling as disabled facilities (there is a step up to the building). Additional toilet and washbasin in a new building by reception. Utility room housing a laundry with washing machine, dryer and dishwashing sink. Fishing in the River Severn. Fenced playground. Gas stocked. WiFi.
