General

  • Riverside inn on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Nine miles from Hay-on-Wye
  • Dozens of walks starting straight from the site

A riverside inn, at the bottom of the Black Mountains, and flanked by the Brecon Beacons National Park: you might reckon there's a topping amount of hiking and biking around Herefordshire site Bridge Inn Camping Site. You'd be entirely correct – and as it's based at a pub, tipples and vittles after a hearty hike/bike ride will be a tiptop option too.

And if you don't want to hike or bike? First of all, pfffft, as this is a smashing countryside setting for both, but if your tastes do tend towards the more placid while on hol, the tome-heavy town of Hay-on-Wye is a mere nine miles away for picking up many (many) volumes; and for sightseeing, cathedral city Hereford is around 15 miles from the pub.

The tipples and vittles at the Bridge Inn have been lauded by many traveller types, so if you're a carnivore, do tuck into their well-regarded juicy steaks… The team's pretty knowledgeable about what's on offer hikewise around the area too: check out the dozens of local walks in the pub folder to plot where you'll be off to next.

Facilities on site include toilets and showers as well as a washing-up area; there's a playground for small sorts, and heaps of green open space is all around.

A lovely quiet and relaxed site in a beautiful area 02/06/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom heather_p163169 Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Lots of space in the camping field with sheltered pitches. Really quiet and relaxing and just a stones throw from the lovely Bridge Inn pub that serves really lovely food if you're not in the mood to cook. Really reasonable price for the pitch, easy to find and a simple 'Check in' when we arrived. Would definitely return to The Bridge Inn.

    Disliked: 

    There was no toilet in the camping field. It was only a short walk over a style and over the bridge to the loos but in the middle of the night it would be a bit inconvenient.

Amazing and quiet place, nice for food in the pub and walks 01/06/2017

  • Liked: 

    There is nothing to do but relax, have a nice drink/meal in the pub and explore the area. Heavenly quiet. Lovely local people come from where ever to enjoy this quirky place. The sound of water in the little stream during the night, owls... lovely!

    Disliked: 

    Albeit quite clean the toilet and shower facilities are really a bit limited/ One shower for ladies, one for men. From the tents field you will really have a bit of a walk to the toilets.. During the bank holiday weekend the pub was extremely busy, I don't know how the staff coped, it was very chaotic (but every body was still friendly).

  • Liked: 

    Simplicity of it all. Nice large field whoch meant you weren't cramped next to other campers. Being near a pub was also very handy! Nice loos. The owners were lovely and rescued us when our car battery went flat!

    Disliked: 

    The hill to get out the field was a little tricky in the car when wet.

Too expensive for what was basically camping in a field 30/05/2017

  • Liked: 

    Close to nice pub in lovely surroundings with a stream that the children loved playing in.

    Disliked: 

    No play area - as was advertised on the Pitch Up site. This was frustrating as one of the reasons that we chose the site was for the play area. Not very child friendly site as the toilets and showers were far away and had to cross a stile and a bridge across a stream to get to them. This made toilet visits (which can be plentiful with young children) an arduous task.

Local attractions

Walks, walks and yet more English and Welsh walks…. dozens to pick from start straight from the pub, like the handsome route to Hay-on-Wye nine miles away, to have a wander around the bookshops before tottering back with to base with a rucksack full of tomes. The Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park, both edging the site, also have enough hikes of all lengths to keep you out of mischief for weeks.

Abergavenny, the Monmouthshire town promoted as one of the 'gateway to Wales', is ten miles from Bridge Inn Camping Site and has many more hiking options as the Marches Way, Beacons Way and Usk Valley Walk all pass through it (if these just aren't enough walking for you, the 177-mile Offa's Dyke Path is nearby).

Abergavenny dates back to Roman times and has many old buildings and ruins to see; for more ancientness, county capital Hereford is 15 miles from the pub and has a fine eleventh cathedral, home to the splendidly eccentric medieval depiction of the world in the Mappa Mundi.
