Hi
I do not know of any in the Welshpool area but I have in the past stopped at a pub serving food and asked if I ordered food would they object if I stopped and have never been refused. Most of these were before joining this site and have not kept a record, but the worst is they can do is say no

Happy wilding

Hi

Out of town to the south you can try by the canal just here 52.63902, -3.16071 - Google Maps (http://tinyurl.com/yyu8upw)

There's a pub called The Horseshoes at Berriew (tel: 01686 640198) that's worth a call to enquire - find it here 52.61246, -3.18271 - Google Maps (http://tinyurl.com/y58a85q)

Just outside Welshpool on the Shrewsbury road, A hundred yards on the left past Buttington railway crossing. Is a pub called the Green Dragon Inn. On their land is a sign saying overnight stays welcome. All this and a pint can't be bad.

Powys Pouncil permit overnight stays, for one night in seven, in many of their car parks. I think the site database has most of them, plus I have a listing on my site here: Overnight stopovers for motorhomes in the UK and Ireland (http://www.ukmotorhomes.net/uk-motorhome-stopovers.shtml#Wales)
Both main car parks in Welshpool are OK.

After reading this thread and consulting the POI map I spent the night in the Church Street car park. I parked right at the top near the shops and the tourist office, partly because it felt safer and partly to get on a level spot, but I had the bonus of quite a nice view of the hills on the horizon! Very convenient for town, and with the bonus of 24 hour toilets: as with the car park in Macynlleth (and presumably other towns in Powys?) decent toilets are provided. 20p to use them during the day, but when the attendant has gone home there is a single one outside that is opened up at no charge :-)
It was quite reassuring to know that nobody could or was going to challenge me for parking up there as the rules said I could for one night in seven! All you have to do is to pay the standard tariff for parking (caravans have to pay an extra amount for overnight).

The Berwyn mountains, North Wales. More or less anywhere here will send you home happy but the views from Foel Cwm Sian Llwyd are particularly enjoyable if you've remembered to pitch out of the wind and have brought some water with you.
