General

The Bull's Head, Craswall is in a idyllic location at the foot of the Black Mountains in rural Herefordshire. Once called the 'most remote pub in the UK', this is truly the place to get away from it all. The pub is renowned for its excellent food (Good Food Guide 2013) and its selection of local ciders and real ales. The pub is only open Friday Saturday and Sundays.

The campsite is in a gently sloping field next to the pub, and is wild camping at its finest. At times you may have to share the field with a couple of sheep (although they'll probably stay at the far end of the field).

Please note that there is no mobile phone signal in the area. GPS and satnavs are unreliable due to the remote location, so please come prepared.

Directions


Leaving Hay-on-Wye, once you have passed The Swan at Hay Hotel on the right, take the first left onto Forest Road. Continue for 2.5 miles. Take the left fork and keep going. It's another 3.5 miles, although it will feel a lot further. Have faith and keep going.

From Abergavenny, take the Old Hereford Road (A465) North towards Hereford. At Pandy, take a sharp left next to the pub. Keep going. You will go through Cloddock then Longtown before reaching Craswall.

Remember that the pub is in a very remote location and Satnavs/GPS aren't always reliable. Please bring these directions with you.

In summer months, there is a small bus service from Hay to Craswall. Call Hay-on-Wye tourist information office for an up-to-date timetable.
