Oak Grove Retreats offers you a peaceful stay in a beautiful setting close to the River Wye & surrounded by the wild Cambrian
Bushcraft expert and TV presenter, Ray Mears traveled the length of the Wye in August 2015 making his documentary "Wild River". He describes the Cambrian Mountains area of Mid Wales as "some of the wildest lands in Britain" and he said he felt "inspired by the wonderful wildlife and stunning scenery of this area".

Grove Retreats is part of Doldowlod Old Station Caravan Park: a small quiet, well managed park 3 miles south of Rhayader and 4.5 miles from the Elan Valley Visitor Centre. It is a perfect location from which to explore the unspoiled beauty of Mid wales and a great base to travel further afield to Snowdonia in the north or Wales's buzzing capital city of Cardiff in the South.
Described by BBC Spring Watch's Iolo Williams as "Wales's last true wilderness," the Cambrian Mountains are the hidden heart of beautiful Mid Wales. This is the gateway to the spectacular Elan Valley, an area which has come to be known as the "Welsh Lake-land"
whilst our local market town of Rhayader is known as "The Wildslife Centre of Wales".
As well as all who love the beauty of the countryside, Doldowlod Old Station Caravan Park is also a Great holiday destination for railway enthusiasts!
