Upper Duffryn Farm

Upper Duffryn Farm nestles among the hills of the Upper Clun Valley, beside the river Clun, just a few miles from the village of Newcastle.

Sited in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it has a small CL site for 5 units with electricity and waste disposal.

Well behaved dogs are welcome, and there are many local walks. Click here for info.

The site is open only to Caravan Club members.

The surrounding countryside is rich with historic and archaeological interest.  The border lands hold numerous defensive Marcher castles, including nearby Clun Castle and Powys Castle. Also in the area  is the C18th Farm at Acton Scott, recently used for a television documentary series .
