- Traditional country pub and restaurant near Hay-on-Wye
- Open fireplace, gardens and beer garden with spectacular views
- Set in the Golden Valley surrounded by the Merbach Hills
If you were staying at country pub site The Castlefields, in the village of Clifford in Herefordshire, you'd very likely want to wander the four miles to Hay-on-Wye on your first morn and then return, book-laden, to this traditional pub and restaurant to set up camp for several hours...?
And you might want to occasionally wander outside to drink in the views too: The Castlefields is in a sightly setting in the Black Mountains's Golden Valley and surrounded by the Merbach Hills.
The pub and restaurant is a family-run independent freehouse in a sixteenth-century former coach house, fully renovated and updated by owners Carol and Ian to include a comfy and welcoming restaurant with an open fire, an adjacent and also-cosy bar, environmentally friendly lighting and a 38-foot well unearthed during the refurbishment. Extensive gardens, a beer garden, parking facilities and a rain water harvester are outside.
But let's talk vittles and tipples. The Castlefield's restaurant is open from Tuesday to Sunday inclusive and serves eminently good home-cooked food made fresh using fine local produce, from a seasonal menu, daily specials board, snack menu and children’s menu. An eminently good selection of fine beers, real ales, wines and spirits is also on tap.
Amenities are sorted in the modern shower block, which also has washing machines, dryers and a washing-up area.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
From the manager...
Thank you for your review I was a little suprised at the dislike comment as there were only yourself and 2 other caravans and would find it hard that you would have to queue. There is also a 3rd shower which is unisex next to the ladies.
We'll go again. Excellent site.

Thank you for your review with regards to the shower block I can assure you that they are cleaned!

The site is situated 4 miles outside of Hay-on-Wye and around 15 miles from Hereford city centre.
From the A438: half way between Hereford and Brecon you will come to the village of Hay-on-Wye, from here take the B4350 and the site will be on your right.
The Castlefields is niftily set for well-known walks in its surrounding countryside, like the Wye Valley Walk running 136 miles along the river and through the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It's also local to Wye fishing and to Offa's Dyke for another hike, all in highly scenic surrounds.
Hay-on-Wye's many bookshops are four miles from base; if you're in town on a Thursday check out the farmer's market and if you're in there in early June trot along to the world famed Hay Festival.
Very active types – you might want to exercise off all the Castlefields tipples and vittles – can wend their way to the Brecon Beacons about 20 miles away and have a go at climbing Pen-Y-Fan, the highest peak in south Wales, or, somewhat less actively, take in some local horse riding, canoeing or cycling.
