A family-owned caravan park on the outskirts of Llanidloes has been named the winner of Best Campsite for Couples in Wales.

Red Kite Touring Park said it was “so happy and proud” to win the award when it was announced on January 7.

The adult only park joined a selection of popular camping and glamping sites in Powys to pick up gongs in the 2019 Campsites.co.uk camping and glamping awards.

Its attractive setting looking over the Clywedog Valley, five-star facilities located close to the market town of Llanidloes, as well as fishing and fully-serviced pitches were a winning combination for voters.

Martin Smith, founder of Campsites.co.uk, said: “Every one of our winners has brought their best to the table this year and they deserve every success that comes their way.”

Red Kite Touring Park said on social media: “Many thanks to you, our lovely customers for your continued support!

“Congratulations [to] the national winner and to everyone in other categories!”

The accolade follows a Powys Business Award in 2018, David Bellamy Award in 2017/2018 and AA Wales Campsite of the Year 2018.
