Views from the site

General

  • 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.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Wonderful setting, very accommodating staff and good facilities.05/08/2019

  • Liked: 

    Beautiful setting, privacy, big areas of grass to play on + stream. The family were very friendly and helpful.
    The castle ruins are an easy walk up the hill and well worth a visit and the village shop is more than a village shop and brilliant.
    Everything in the caravan worked well although it is clearly a few years old and some of the beds were only really suitable for small people.
    The tractor passes early in the morning but clearly try to keep the noise to a minimum.
    The fact that Hay on Wye is 14 miles away but a 45 min drive was something of an unfortunate surprise.

Ideal getaway for families or couples who like tranquility and nature18/07/2019

  • 3 bedroom static caravan
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    AMAZING all round! Incredibly well kept caravan with a 'homely' feel. Running stream behind the caravan with a rope swing over the water. Beautiful views from the lounge window and outdoor dining table and chairs. Several footpaths right on the doorstep, recommend getting an OS Explorer map of the area. It's about an hour's hike up the nearest mountain to get to the Offa's Dyke trail, offering stunning views of the Black Mountains and the English countryside. Definitely coming back for another holiday!

    Disliked: 

    The shower is a tad powerful and variable in temperature. Fix: run the hot tap full blast for a minute, then set the pressure and amount of cold you want.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

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.

Must see

  • Blaenavon Ironworks (12.7 miles)
  • Blaenavon World Heritage Centre & Tourist Information Centre (12.9 miles)
  • Big Pit: National Coal Museum (13.3 miles)
