Alwyn and Olive began business in Abermule as a Garage serving fuel, repairing vehicles and buying and selling cars. When the property behind the Garage became available they bought their first Park, and as it was a former ‘Smithy’ they naturally named it Smithy Park.

Lifestyles changed, the garage was sold and Smithy Park was developed to accommodate Static Holiday Homes, visiting touring caravans and motorhomes. The Park sits on the River Severn and is popular with keen fishermen.

The Jones family grew with two young boys coming along, Glenn and Wayne, and the Bestparks Group began to evolve!

Smithy is a special place where the River Mule flows into the River Severn, and the Montgomery Canal runs alongside. Mature trees and shrubs give the park a garden like setting along with peace and tranquility. The Park has a friendly, family feel, and is happy to nestle unobtrusively tucked away from the Village at Abermule and yet is only a couple of minutes walk from the local pub.

An on site Park Manager helps with the day to day running as well as the ground maintenance. Fully heated facilities are available for caravan and camping customers along with a small children’s play area. Holiday Home owners just allow themselves to be enfolded in this blissful park in Mid Wales.
