General

  • Quiet secluded site three miles from the cathedral city of Hereford
  • Close to the walking trail along the banks of the river Wye
  • Wild camping with toilet, shower and dogs and campfires allowed

Have peace, have quiet, have sightseeing, walks and books, all in a quiet secluded setting with active options available close by.

The Valletts is a peaceful and remote site in the grounds of a farmhouse three miles from the cathedral city and museums of Hereford and eight miles from the bookish town of Hay-on-Wye. Footpaths run from the site down to the River Wye, where you can join the 136-mile path along the river's banks, passing ancient sites such as the neolithic (and rather fab) Arthur's Stone.

Canoeing, golf and horse riding are also easy to access in the surrounding area – but whichever activity/peaceful pursuit you pick, do carve out time for a pint of the local cider to finish off your Herefordshire day…

The site aims for a wild camping experience and facilities are basic; a hot shower and a toilet are available and there’s an outside tap for washing up.

Dogs and campfires are allowed - please bring your own firewood (available from the local garage) and scoops/bags to clean up after your dog.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

This is a wild camping site and the grass has been mown, but please be aware that it's still rough pasture rather than neat lawn.

    Fantastic location and setting . Farm animals. Nice owners.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets were a essentially a bucket with a pop up tent over the top. There's a toilet and shower attached to the farm house. This needed a lot of TLC. The field is over grown in parts with lots of nettles and thistles. It is advertised as a wild camping in all fairness.

    Sheep poo everywhere, got all over shoes, tent, everywhere. Not we’ll sign posted. Toilets, are composting toilets with a pop up tent over, shower and washing up facilities are in the main house, which you feel weird walking into someone’s home. Facilities need upgrading to be charging £10per person per night, this is more expensive than shell island.

    Not much

    Disliked: 

    The impression we got was the site offered a mowed field where we could relax around the camp fire and use the basic showering and toilet facilities because that’s all we needed, however the field is over grown with nettles and thistles. The grass was so long we couldn’t lay the ground sheet of our tent flat so the we had SO MANY slugs coming into our tent and were unable to stop this because of the long over grown grass. The toilet facilities were some horrible portaloos with tents over the top and if you wanted a shower then you used the single dirty bathroom in the farm house. I am upset for spending £67 for 3 nights and not sure what we got? Apparently keeping the bathroom clean isn’t included in the price. It’s a real shame because it could be a really nice site. It just needs someone to make some effort and care. Mowing the grass and a basic block or cabin for toilets and showers which are clean seems to much to ask. We like wild camping but this doesn’t mean we like to shower in dirt. We have been told we can get our two nights refund through the site but it isn’t clear how to do this so not sure if it will happen.

    We had a great stay here. Because the site had only just reopened we had it all to ourselves it was so peaceful, quiet, secluded and had stunning views. We took our two little dogs who also loved it. I am so thankful to the owner Kathy who was so accommodating and helpful! She made sure we had an amazing time, she went out of her way to research local attractions for us and kept us up to date on them whilst we were away from the site. Definitely worth staying here. We can't wait to go back.

Local attractions

There's loads of lovely countryside around here for days out around the local footpaths, strolling alongside the Wye or pedalling peacefully among the Herefordshire countryside. It's easy to access the 136 miles of the Wye Valley Walk from here, for a hike six miles hence to Arthur's Stone, the Neolithic burial chamber  set high above Herefordshire's Golden Valley.

For more organised outdoor days, a golf course is within three miles, horse riding within five and guided canoe trips along the Wye within six – or you could sample sections of the region's other walking paths on the Marches Way, Beacons Way, Usk Valley Walk and Offa's Dyke Path.

In town, Herefordshire's capital Hereford is an ancient city with plenty of old piles to see, including its famed cathedral with chained library, medieval manuscripts and spectacular 13th-century Mappi Mundi: go see. There's a cider museum too, and a cider route, covering the apple (and perry pear) goodness in town and around the county.

What goes excellently with cider? Books, that's what. Get along to Hay-on-Wye eight miles away to mooch around its dozens of bookshops, then take a tome to somewhere peaceful in the Brecon Beacons National Park or along the Herefordshire Cider Route.

Must see

  • Goodrich Castle (14.1 miles)
  • Caldicot Castle & Country Park (16.5 miles)
  • Eastnor Castle (16.9 miles)

National Trust

  • The Weir (2.4 miles)
  • Skenfrith Castle (11.5 miles)
