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.

    The view was stunning from our pitch and was able to make it feel private enough whilst also being able to socialise with other campers.
    The managers clearly take pride in caring for the site. This is reflected in how clean and tidy everything is including the toilets and showers. The managers were very friendly and welcoming.
    We loved how they also are doing their part for nature with it being a conservation area.

From the manager...

We are pleased that our Wild Camping field is becoming more & more popular!! Thank you for your positive comments and for noticing that we all put in a lot of effort to keep the park looking clean and tidy. We also endeavour to do as much as we can for the environment. Please come and visit us again soon :-)

Lovely scenic break in the country 10/07/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom lorna_g225915 Confirmed

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

    The whole site was very well maintained, toilets and showers kept very clean, plenty of hot water for washing up. The site had a lot of flowers and shrubs which made it attractive and there was a herb garden available for visitors to use. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Location was lovely but probably only downside would be that you needed to use the car to drive to pubs, shop etc or have a very steep walk back!

From the manager...

Thank you, we do our best to keep the park, clean, well maintained & pleasing to the eyes and thoroughly enjoy welcoming everyone that comes to join us. While the trip back from the pub and the shop is a steep walk, it has it's benefits - burning off unwanted calories is one :-). We're glad that you would visit us again and look forward to your next visit. Wishing you all the best.

    What's not to like? Fantastic and peaceful site in beautiful surroundings, about 2.5 miles from Hay on Wye. Extremely well kept by Don and Tricia who made us feel very welcome.
    Very clean ensuite bathrooms.
    Strong focus on environmental impact. Ochard with herb garden where we can help ourselves.
    Not sure what motorhome a previous reviewer owns but we had no access issues with our 7.5m one. The distance to town was no problem, we walked it. There's always option of taxi.
    Thank you very much again for our enjoyable stay, we will be back
