- On a working farm with stunning views of the Black Mountains
- A 25-minute drive from Abergavenny and 35 minutes from Hay-on-Wye
- Blaenavon Ironworks and National Coal Museum within 40-minute drive
Picture the scene: it’s day one of your hols, you wake to the sounds of birdcalls, you open the curtains and there, in all their glory, are the Black Mountains. If this sounds just splendid (because you're a sensible sort), head along to Cayo Retreat, a family-friendly site in Herefordshire, 25 minutes’ drive from Abergavenny.
On a working farm, this site is the epitome of peaceful: five minutes up a small country road from the nearest habitation, there’s no foot traffic (or regular traffic) passing by to break the quiet, and wanders with your dog through woodland and along the banks of the Olchon brook on site will soothe troubled minds (and energetic mutts) right quick.
Lengthier rambles are within easy reach too, as the Black Mountains – and the Brecon Beacons National Park, and the long-distance Offa’s Dyke Path – are on the England-Wales border less than a mile’s saunter away across fields.
When it comes to eats, the perennially hungry are well catered to: a welcome pack with bread, tea, coffee, milk and other essentials will be waiting for guests’ arrival, and the pretty little village of Longtown is a 15-minute walk from base and has a small well-stocked shop and a local pub serving food.
Open from 01/05/2020 to 31/10/2020

The site’s not just well set up for ramblers... Other energetic types will be best pleased by how close National Cycle Route 42 is (just a 15-minute drive, or 30-minute cycle), and those who like to get up close with the local(ish) wildlife have only a 15-minute drive to llama trekking.
People craving high-octane adventures can opt instead for the mountain adventure centre 10 minutes away, which covers lots of different bases: guests can get competitive on the paintball field, get adrenaline pumping on the quads, hovercrafts or rally karts, test mettle on the assault course or try out marksmanship with some clay pigeon shooting.
Anyone after a more laidback hol should maybe follow in historical footsteps instead: get a feel for the industry of this part of the UK at Blaenavon Ironworks and Big Pit National Coal Museums, both about 40 minutes away, or mosey around the ruins at Skenfrith Castle 35 minutes from base.
Prefer some urban days? Head to Abergavenny – known hereabouts as a ‘gateway to Wales’ – 25 minutes from the site for indie shops and foodie stops, or Hay-on-Wye 35 minutes away for leafing through nearly two dozen bookshops.
