General

  • Family-run rural campsite in the hills of mid Wales
  • Lots of space for families and pets to run around
  • Bujok bacon and home-produced sausages and burgers for sale

'Absolute perfection' is how one happy guest described their stay at absolutely ffab and award-winning Fforest Fields Caravan & Camping Park in Powys – and after having a look at what's on offer (time to peruse the site pics), you're ffery likely to agree.

There's loads on offer at this peaceful park in the mid-Wales hills: large pitches, spectacular views, a fably friendly atmosphere for adults, kids and dogs, a dedicated and concentrated approach to conservation and wildlife that sees many areas left natural to be homes for birds and small mammals in the havens of the hedgerows, wild banks and stream verges... A stream runs through the ten-acre site too, leading to several wildlife ponds for kids to peer at newts and tadpoles.

Fforest Fields is four miles from the old market town of Builth Wells and the Royal Welsh Showground in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of Wales, in countryside that we reckon could be among the most peaceful and unspoilt in the country...

The pitching area is in the middle of the family farm, with well-maintained facilities including free hot showers heated with a biomass boiler, a washroom, family rooms and plenty of fridges for campers' use. Barbecues and campfires are allowed as long as they're kept off the ground in a suitable container (blocks are available to protect the grass if you need them).

The Fforest Fields team has made it their mission to welcome guests to a quiet and relaxing site, so there's no swimming pool or clubhouse, just a community-minded park where guests can make friends and where the kids can be let free to ride their bikes around the grounds.

Dogs are also very welcome (on leads while on site, please) and there are lots of walks directly from the site as well as plenty of areas where they can be let off the lead and where they can swim in local lakes.

Also on site is a small shop selling essentials like milk and bread, fresh orange, yoghurts, eggs, most tasty Bujok bacon and home-produced sausages and pork burgers, and a small café, serving simple but tasty food and real coffee.

Lovely place, lovely people 17/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    The friendly welcome, not often the staff will show you your pitch in low season let alone peak periods. The staff are very knowledgeable, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The site has obviously been developed over the years but still maintains that homely, friendly feeling.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing I think they have thought of just about evertything.

    Cleanliness, kayaks, space, on site shop, drying room.

    Disliked: 

    The staff - particularly the main older lady who runs the place - seemed to be fairly stressed when we were there.

    It was a busy camp so I guess that means more work.

Directions


Once you are on the A481 please follow the signs and do not turn off the main road if coming from New Radnor and Kington on the A44. If coming from the north, via Newtown, we strongly recommend ignoring the satnav and taking the A489 then the A470 via Llanidloes and Rhayader to Builth Wells (not via Llandrindod Wells). Once you are on the A470, the satnav should be reset.

The nearest train stations are:
Builth Road - Heart of Wales line - 5 miles
Llandrindod Wells - Heart of Wales line - 5 miles

There are no public buses from or to the campsite.

Local attractions

The Fforest Fields Caravan & Camping Park team encourages guests to explore the terrain of the campsite, from taking a picnic and sitting on the hill watching wild ponies to trekking for food and draught beers at the Seven Stars Inn on the hill's other side.

Two lakes for swimming and fishing are near Fforest Fields, as well as dozens of walks through the forest: take to the top of the hill to see thousands of acres of moorland below, with spectacular views towards the Brecon Beacons.

If it's nature and scenery you're after, try the Elan Valley near the site; for history, Norman castles are scattered around and the site of a small keep is hidden in the Fforest Fields woods.

Activity enthusiasts have watersports, biking and climbing in this area, the nearby Brecon Beacons and in the ancient Cambrian Mountains towards more of the same at Aberystwyth. Very close to home are two play centres and a small breeds centre for active kids.

Many first-rate market towns are nearby, like bookish Hay-on-Wye, Prestigne, Brecon and the Victorian spa town of Llandrindod Wells.

The Royal Welsh Showground at Llanelwedd near Builth Wells is four miles away and hosts events on its showground throughout the year including the Royal Welsh Show in July.

Must see

  • Brecon Mountain Railway (26.0 miles)
  • Stokesay Castle (27.2 miles)
  • Dolaucothi Gold Mines - National Trust (28.4 miles)
