AS MID Wales looks forward to the recovery of tourism in the region, the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society is preparing for the opening of its new caravan and camp site near Builth Wells.

From May 28 the showground at Llanelwedd, the venue for the famous Royal Welsh Show, will launch a camping site for caravans and campers to use. After more than a year of inactivity the society has worked hard to maintain the showground to ensure that, upon re-opening, their visitors can access the best possible experience available in Mid Wales.

Nestled on the Radnorshire and Breconshire border, the campsite is within easy access to many footpaths and bridleways with breath-taking scenic views.

“With the Elan Valley to the north and the Brecon Beacons to the south, this ideal location is perfect for those wanting to enjoy outdoor pursuits across Mid Wales,” said the RWAS.

“With many eager to get back to exploring and tourism resurging post lockdown, the Llanelwedd camping site will aim to play a role in offering first class facilities to those looking to stay on the world-famous showground.

“From May 28 we will be opening our camping site with a number of options for our visitors, from caravans with access to electricity, to grass pitches for those intending to camp, for those who have pre-booked and those who want to turn up on the day.

“We look forward to the recovery of tourism here in Mid Wales and across the UK this summer and hope the hospitality and tourism sector can bounce back from what has been a turbulent time in our industries.”

The society will be launching its booking site very soon, so if you would like to book to use the facilities then please return over the coming weeks.
