General

  • Spacious and peaceful site on the edge of the Brecon Beacons
  • Within half an hour's drive of hill walks, canoeing and horse riding
  • A 10-minute drive from Hay-on-Wye

Question: what do bookworms, mountain bikers, hikers and heritage railway buffs have in common?

Answer: they’ll all be beaming from ear to ear at Borders Hideaway Holiday Home Park in Herefordshire: this small but spacious site is on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, under five minutes’ drive from the village of Clyro and 10 minutes from the antiquarian book browsers’ haven of Hay-on-Wye.

If you want to load up with paperbacks and hide away in the hills perusing them, this site’s a supremely suitable venue, with space and solitude, country views and a sensory garden to soothe your other senses. It’s also a comfy base to come back to after days filled with active stuff in the area: thanks to a winning combo of hot showers and hairdryers in the bathrooms, and a laundry with washing machines, dryers and irons, you can emerge from the hills looking pressed and clean enough for a literary luncheon, or a dapper dinner in town. (If you prefer your dining alfresco, barbecues are allowed on site.)

With an eye for the small but significant details, the kids’ playground is centrally placed so grownups can keep an eye on younger party members while they continue sizzling sausages… or savouring their stacks of paperbacks.

    Slide on the playframe not use able, only fault which says a lot.

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and facilities here at Borders Hideaway. We are so sorry about the slide; the rubber edging was pulled off by some children the week before leaving a rough edge and we didn't want anyone hurting their hands. A new seal is on the way but we are sorry your children were unable to use the slide during your visit. We hope to see you again soon. The Borders Hideaway Team.

    One of the best sites I have ever stayed at. Stayed in the field with the playground in the middle which is fantastic if you have children, maybe a little loud if you don't! That said, everyone was in and quiet by 9pm. Free wifi but the kids hardly used it as they had such a fab time playing outside! Site is beautifully kept and the showers, toilets and washing up facilities are just fabulous. Nice little touches like bug hides, a bee hotel and site-made honey. Wardens do a great job making sure everyone is OK and the place is kept spotless.

    Convenient for Hay and surrounding areas, beautiful walks (if you like walking try the Begwyns - very nearby and fantastic views) and a very decent Co-Op just down the road. So glad we found this lovely site and we will definitely be back.

Local attractions

Once you’ve filled your boots in Hay-on-Wye’s numerous bookshops, there’s more to do in town, including exploring the castle, strolls and picnics by the river, and fortifying stops in the many hostelries and eateries.

If you fancy further river ventures, make for Glasbury, 10 minutes' drive away, to hire canoes and kayaks for trips down the Wye. Should you prefer the ease of an engine-driven craft, the base at Llangattock (40 minutes) has cruisers for daily hire.

If it’s walks at height you’re after, Talgarth (15 minutes) is a starting point for paths up the Beacons’ highest mountain, Waun Fach; for gentle wooded wanders with a waterfall at the end, plus wildlife spotting on the way, head over to the Pwll y Wrach nature reserve (20 minutes).

To see the Beacons on horseback, there are treks of various lengths from Llangorse Multi Activity Centre (25 minutes), as well as indoor climbing and high up zipwires and rope walks both inside and out. If that’s not energetic enough, Oakerwood Leisure (40 minutes) has pastimes like paintballing, quad biking and clay pigeon shooting to get the adrenaline pumping.

Historical type? Clamber round ancient sites like Crickhowell Castle and Llanthony Priory (35 and 45 minutes), puff through the hills on the Brecon Mountain Railway from Pant (50 minutes), or descend deep into mining heritage at the Big Pit National Coal Museum, an hour away.

Must see

  • Brecon Mountain Railway (21.7 miles)
  • Blaenavon Ironworks (21.7 miles)
  • Big Pit: National Coal Museum (21.9 miles)
