Oatcroft: Looking towards Worcestershire

General

  • Wild camping on a working farm in the Welsh Marches
  • 10 minutes’ drive to Presteigne and Kington; 30 minutes to Hay-on-Wye
  • Dog-friendly, off-grid; panoramic views into Wales and towards Malvern

Stay a while at Oatcroft, a remote wild campsite on the borderland between Wales and England, and explore the wealth of walking trails connecting hills, valleys and history. With Offa’s Dyke and Mortimer’s Trail passing close by and the Wych Way leading from nearby Kington through to the Cotswolds, there are routes here to suit everyone from Sunday strollers to long-distance hikers.

This simple site on a working farm in rural Herefordshire has far reaching views into Wales and across to the Malverns. About a mile away, the village of Titley has a pub where you can fill up after the day’s exertions or within 10 minutes’ drive you’ll find pubs, restaurants, takeaways and shops in the market towns of Presteigne and Kington.

For pastimes that don’t involve donning your walking boots, take some quiet time at Titley Pool – a nature reserve surrounding one of the largest natural open areas of water in Herefordshire. Or experience tee-time at the highest 18-hole course in England at Kington Golf Club (15 minutes’ drive). The famed book town of Hay-on-Wye – with more than 20 second-hand bookshops and all manner of intriguing shops to explore besides – right on the England/Wales border is worth a visit any time of year, but becomes a real kingdom of culture each year during the literary festival.

On site you can park your car by your pitch and bring your dog along. Groups, solo travellers and families are all welcome to experience the joys of getting back-to-nature in this secluded part of the Welsh Marches.

    Great location with stunning views across Wales and back towards the Malvern hills.
    Phillip our host was very friendly and accommodating, good communication and very helpful.
    Lots of great trails and woodland to explore in the surrounding areas.
    Lots of farm animals which was a big hit for my daughter. All in all our stay was very pleasant, peaceful and we would definitely revisit and recommend this site.

Local attractions

As you’d expect in such a rural idyll, there are plenty of ways to get out and enjoy the countryside within easy reach. Several pony trekking options are available within half an hour’s drive both heading into Wales and within Herefordshire and Shropshire. And you can hire a kayak or canoe at scenic spots along The River Wye.

Dip into the fascinating history of this borderland area with a trip to the picturesque market towns of Leominster (25 minutes’ drive) – well-known for its half-timbered houses and antique shops – and Ludlow (35 minutes) with its large medieval castle. Check out listings for local events as both towns host all sorts of festivals throughout the year.

This part of the world is also famous for its cider, so if you fancy a tipple you can pop to some nearby pitstops on the cider circuit at Pembridge (10 minutes) and Weobley (20 minutes) where producers will be waiting with a pint and a warm Herefordshire welcome.
