'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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

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:

There are no public buses from or to the campsite.
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.
