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 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 – and we're fairly sure you'll figure out that mountain views are on offer too..?

Run by friendly and helpful James and his family team, Black Mountain View is a small, relaxed and simple holiday park on an organic smallholding on the Powys/Herefordshire border, with excellent access from the main road.

James and co 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 loo and shower block which also has disabled facilities and a family room.

    The site was easy to find and access. We were met by James who showed us to our pitch, and booked dinner for us in a lovely local pub.
    The facilities are clean and nicely laid out. It is very close to the road and we were aware of the road noise, but it did not detract from our stay.
    The views of the Black Mountains are stunning despite the rain!
    We would return, hopefully when it's sunny and dry enough to enjoy the walks on Offa's dyke.

    James the owner is very helpfull and easy going. Two good walks from site into Hay on Wye and to local pub. Clean hot showers are free with 20p charge for hairdrier if required. Site has good level roomy hardstanding pitches and the area is very well drained. The views of the Black Mountains are stunning. The site is just off the main Hereford to Brecon road but road noise was nothing to worry about. An ideal position to explore the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons and surrounding beautifull countryside. Plenty of water points excellent Chem waste unit and a very natty grey waste drain for motorhomers like us. Please ask James don't just dump your grey water on the the grass or hardstanding like so many lazy people. He works hard to keep the place clean and tidy so don't spoil it for others.

    First impressions as I entered the driveway were of a spotlessly clean and well-maintained site, and this was confirmed during my stay. I was greeted by the owner who was very welcoming, friendly and courteous. He was very knowledgeable about the area and provided me with local information that would be useful for the stay.

    The facilities on the site were maintained to the highest standard and it was excellent value for money, so I would recommend this site as a place to stay.

    The view from our tent was incredible- such a beautiful view of the Black Mountains! The shower and toilet block was great and kept nice and clean - there were 2 toilets and 2 showers in the women's, which for the size of the site was plenty. There were some great off lead dog walks straight from the campsite, which our dog loved. James (the owner) was lovely, and when we mentioned the only issue that we had (a wasp nest next to our tent), he sorted it within hours. We also had great phone signal on site, and had the joy of watching buzzards and kites in the day, and owls in the evening!

The famous Hay Festival runs for ten days each late May/early June; also in the area, check out the Brecon Jazz Festival at Brecon in August and Royal Welsh Show at Builth Wells in July, the biggest agricultural show in the world.

Over the border, Herefordshire and the Golden Valley in the lee of the Black Mountains also has quite the pile going on, from historic houses, museums and art galleries to old market towns and the Neolithic chamber tomb Arthur's Stone – and amid similarly splendid scenery too.
