General

  • Modern facilities at the border of England and Wales
  • Easy access to the so-called town of books, Hay-on-Wye
  • Panoramic views and countryside walks

Welcome to Borders Hideaway Holiday Home Park where every touring pitch has a fresh water supply and Freeview TV connection. Add to this free wifi, terraced pitches, a children's play area, beautiful views and plenty of peace, and we've got it all for you to enjoy.

Our washroom facilities are the envy of most caravan parks. The shower rooms are private cubicles with a wash basin, WC and central heating throughout. All are fully equipped with soap dispensers, hand dryers and hairdryers. Pot and crockery wash up is available with lashings of hot water. There is also a superb laundry with a coin-operated washer, dryer, deep sink, iron and a drying room for all your walking wear and boots. All facilities are immaculately maintained.

Borders Hideaway is tucked away on the border of England and Wales. It is situated in a valley above the sleepy village of Clyro, on the Welsh side of the River Wye, opposite the town of Hay-on-Wye. Hay is renowned globally as 'the town of books' due to its vast array of second-hand book shops, however it also has a wide variety of galleries, antique, gift shops, taverns, and tearooms, offering an extensive choice for the discerning visitor.

Borders Hideaway provides peace and relaxation with panoramic views over fertile green and pleasant countryside; being only a small but well-spaced park, a stay here promises real solitude.

Very clean site friendly people 23/04/2018

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Everything was clean and fresh

    Disliked: 

    One thing annoyed me was the automatic tap swith off on shower should have been just a tap also could see a problem with young children as water was extremely hot and no way of cooling it down

From the manager...

Thank you for your comments, pity you didn't mention it to us while you were here that you found the water to be too hot, we could have adjusted it for you - as the weather has been on the cold side generally, we left it on a warmer setting. Take care, Don & Tricia

    Very quiet site, excellent toilet/shower block. The wardens were friendly & very helpful, even assisting us to get the van onto the pitch. The weather was excellent and we were surprised that we were the only caravan in the touring field. Nice clean site.

    Disliked: 

    It was not a dislike but an opinion, the lighting on the touring field could be improved.

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your review. We have low level lighting on our touring field out of consideration for our neighbours, and as the touring field is adjacent to the road we turn the lights off in areas that are not occupied to reduce any impact on the environment. We hope you will visit us again soon.
All the best, Don & Tricia

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    On arrival we were greeted by Tricia and Don, who were extremely helpful. They showed us to our pitch and helped us site the caravan. Considering the weather we had (rain and snow!) the shower/toilets were spotless. They were by far the best we have seen, and extremely useful to have a toilet and hand basin in with the shower. It was a lovely touch also to have washing up liquid provided at the dishwashing area.

    Disliked: 

    It's not so much as a dislike, but my children are a little older and found that there wasn't much to keep their attention on the site, riding bikes was not really permitted either.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review, we are glad that you enjoyed your time on our park and liked the facilities. We do permit bike riding, all that we ask is that children do so with extreme caution and are aware of vehicles driving around the site as we wouldn't want them getting hurt. Wishing you all the best and hope to see you all again soon, Don & Tricia

    Beautiful site, very well kept. Fresh herbs to help yourself to, also fruit from the orchard in season.

    Disliked: 

    That I can’t return as the toilets are inaccessible due to health issues.

From the manager...

Thank you for your positive review of our park. It's a shame that you won't be back to visit, we use the most "eco-friendly" cleaning products in our washrooms but that they too conflicted with your health issues. Take care, Don & Tricia
