The Bestparks group is a small family-run collection of caravan holiday home and touring parks that are set in the lovely countryside of Herefordshire, Shropshire and Mid Wales. Smithy Park is one of these parks.
Smithy Park is set in 5 acres of well-maintained surroundings. The park has a garden-like appearance. Smithy Park's ground are neat and full of mature trees and shrubs that lead down to the River Severn.
Guest can enjoy free fishing on the River Severn which is alongside the park. You can also purchase day, weekly and season tickets to fish 2 miles upstream or on the adjoining Shropshire Union Canal. Guests can enjoy fast water fishing which includes trout and salmon and there are grayling, chubb and other coarse fish.
The park has a small children's play area that has swings, slides and a climbing frame for children to enjoy.
Smithy Park's all-service touring pitches are nestled alongside the River Mule and the River Severn. They are safely fenced off. Every concrete pitch has a 16 amp electrical hook-up, a TV hook-up with some satellite channels, waster, waste water and sewerage connections. There is also a small light for guests' convenience. There are also the usual toilet and laundry facilities.

The Montgomeryshire Canal (part of the Severn Way) is right on the doorstep with canal boats further upstream.

Newtown is just 5 minutes in the car or a regular bus journey from the park entrance.
