What a tent pitch site should be - a pleasure to spend time there. 24/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Martin D. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass trailer tent or tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    Pretty much everything. Friendly welcome, great views out from the site, good facilities - we didn't need to use the day room thankfully but could see it would be a boon in really bad weather. Great effort has been made to ensure the sit fits into it's environment - compost loo, bee garden, orchard and happy chickens providing fresh eggs. Lovely local walks and Hay only a short three miles away. We will certainly return.

    Quiet location only the sound of farm animals and birds. Friendly staff, very willing to help. Nice to have a small shop selling products produced locally.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really only slight negative was the slope on the camping field but I camped towards the bottom where it was flatter so not really an issue.

    We were very lucky to find this site as we are still very early on in the season and many places have not opened up for Bell tent hire yet.

    Very clean site with all the amenities needed, kitchen, showers etc....

    Convenient location if you have been in Brecon for day...

    Disliked: 

    We fully enjoyed our stay and there was nothing to dislike.
