Black Mountain View Caravan Park: Enjoy the spectacular views of the mountains

General

  • Family-run site on an organic smallholding in the Wye valley
  • A mile and a half from Hay-on-Wye
  • Modern amenities block with disabled facilities and family room

Books + Black Mountains + Welsh walks + Wye fishing = happy sigh. And all are around Black Mountain View Caravan Park in Powys: it's a mere mile and a half from Hay-on-Wye, in the Wye Valley, a short walk from Offa's Dyke Path – you'll probably figure out that mountain views are on offer here too…?

Run by James and his family team (described as 'friendly', 'attentive', 'helpful' and even 'delightful' by previous guests), Black Mountain View is a small, relaxed and simple holiday park on an organic smallholding on the Powys/Herefordshire border. Comings and goings are a cinch, thanks to excellent access from the main road (no worries about road noise though – even A roads are pretty quiet in this part of the world).

Pony treks, canoe paddles, golf days and bike-based outings are all good outdoorsy options in the surrounds, as are the many walks on offer. If you don't fancy tackling the entire Offa's Dyke Path (177 miles… not for the faint-legged) perhaps the 40-minute riverside section that takes you into Hay-on-Wye is a more palatable idea, still with those cracking mountain views. Fond of fishing? Bring your kit and licence to scout about for barbel, chub and dace in the Wye waters just next to the site.

James and family have had many a touring holiday themselves, so know that good clean facilities are at the top of most campers' and caravanners' list for ticking: the amenities here include a recently-built toilet and shower block which also has disabled facilities and a family room.

    It was a lovely, well organised site with great views of the Black Mountains. The toilet and shower block was new and very clean. The owner, James, who was super friendly, met us personally and explained where everything was and how it all worked. He also explained how to find the trail/footpath to Hay on Wye. There was electric, water, grey water and toilet disposal facilities and great WiFi. We have already booked to go back there in June!

    Second time visiting and equally impressed as with our first time. Everything is kept spotlessly. James is very welcoming but runs a tight ship with no nonsense so it is a lovely quiet site to relax and unwind. The path to Hay is a great walk and Oakchurch Farm shop is only a short drive away if you want to pick up some local treats.

    Unfortunately, road noise which James can do nothing about did detract slightly but we overcame with cotton wool earplugs which resolved the problem for us.

    Prompt & warm welcome from James, signposting was good, expert help in reversing our vintage Bessie onto her pitch and a comprehensive chat about the site. The whole campsite is beautifully kept & maintained, facilities (showers, toilets, sink wash, recycling, rubbish areas) were spotless.
    Great walk into Hay on Wye via the Offas Dyke Path, which was explained & mapped out by the owner.
    Lovely large area for exercising dogs 🐕... bbq's allowed and even stands provided to protect the grass/pitch and of course beautiful views!
    We couldn't fault our visit and would definitely recommend and return for another visit 👍 Thank you.

Local attractions

Head to Hay for books, books and more books, and pub lunches/dinners in sunny beer gardens or indoors by roaring fires. The famed Hay Festival runs for 10 days each late May/early June; also in the area, check out the Brecon Jazz Festival at Brecon (20 minutes' drive) in August and Royal Welsh Show at Builth Wells (25 minutes) in July, the biggest agricultural show in the world.

Heading outdoors, the Black Mountains, Wye Valley and Brecon Beacons National Park are beacons for those who like tramping around the outdoors: there are way too many activities and options to list here, but popular options include cycling, pony trekking, golfing, climbing, canoeing, potholing, whitewater rafting, fishing...

Over the border, Herefordshire and the Golden Valley, in the lee of the Black Mountains, also have quite the pile going on, and amid similarly splendid scenery too. Visit Arthur's Stone (20 minutes) if you'd like to see what a neolithic burial chamber looks like after 5,000 or so years (pretty well preserved is the answer), or head on to Hereford (half an hour) for museums, the cathedral and tasty foodie/drinkie pickings.

Must see

  • Blaenavon World Heritage Centre & Tourist Information Centre (22.5 miles)
