Visit Wales on your holidays and enjoy time here at Rockbridge Park in Powys.
Found amongst the rolling hills and woodland close to the England and Wales border, this touring and camping park has also the residential section of the site accessible. In addition to the stylish residential park homes that are available and perfect for retired or semi-retired individuals and couples, Rockbridge Park welcomes guests with touring caravans, motorhomes and tents.
19 of the park’s pitches stand on the banks of the River Lugg, offering amazing views of the river, countryside and surrounding hills. These pitches all have electric hook-ups and are ideal for touring caravans and motorhomes. A further 14 pitches are available at Rockbridge Park, of which a mixture are grass pitches with no electric hook-up or fully serviced super pitches.
There is plenty to do both on-site and across the surrounding area, especially for guests that love the outdoors.
The open spaces available at the park are ideal for ball games and running around, while the park’s frontage onto the River Lugg means keen anglers can enjoy private fishing whenever they wish during their stay. Picnic benches are situated across the park and close to the river, so guests have plenty of opportunities for relaxing outdoors or enjoying something to eat and drink al fresco, when the weather allows.
Those that love exploring have miles of countryside and the England and Wales border area to explore, with Offa’s Dyke found close by and a public footpath from the park heading out into the landscape. The local trails are perfect for both walking and cycling.

There were 18 people and 1 dog camping here for a 60th birthday weekend. This is a lovely big clean site and would not hesitate in going back. The showers and toilets were basic but spotless, along with the washing up area. There was also a laundry room with I think a washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge freezer.
Could highly recommend this site for visiting Prestigne. We were also visited by the owners who asked if everything was okay and that we all enjoyed our stay, which we all did. Thanks very much from the campingbuddys see you again soon x
