General

  • Spacious and peaceful site on the edge of the Brecon Beacons
  • Within half an hour's drive of hill walks, canoeing and horse riding
  • A 10-minute drive from Hay-on-Wye

Question: what do bookworms, mountain bikers, hikers and heritage railway buffs have in common?

Answer: they’ll all be beaming from ear to ear at Borders Hideaway Holiday Park in Herefordshire: this small but spacious site is on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, under five minutes’ drive from the village of Clyro and 10 minutes from the antiquarian book browsers’ haven of Hay-on-Wye.

If you want to load up with paperbacks and hide away in the hills perusing them, this site’s a supremely suitable venue, with space and solitude, country views and a sensory garden to soothe your other senses. It’s also a comfy base to come back to after days filled with active stuff in the area: thanks to a winning combo of hot showers and hairdryers in the bathrooms, and a laundry with washing machines, dryers and irons, you can emerge from the hills looking pressed and clean enough for a literary luncheon, or a dapper dinner in town. (If you prefer your dining alfresco, barbecues are allowed on site.)

With an eye for the small but significant details, the kids’ playground is centrally placed so everyone can keep an eye on younger party members while sizzling sausages... or savouring their stacks of paperbacks.

  • Liked: 

    The site is very environmentally friendly. There is an orchard and herb garden with their own bees, and a place to compost your veg. The recycling is excellent. (Though the addition of being able to recycle food waste would be good). Everything worked. The lights, The water was hot, the heating was hot and it was spotlessly clean. The staff are very friendly.

    Disliked: 

    It is closer to a four mile walk into Hay on Wye. Not the two miles suggested.

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your review and kind comments about our orchard, herb garden, bees, compost & recycling, facilities & staff.
Not sure which route you took, but according to google maps it's 2.3 miles from our post code to Hay-on-Wye on foot (approximately 45 minutes walk).
We are pleased to see you would recommend our park to your friends and visit us again, hopefully next season :-)

  • Electric grass tent pitch (family)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Everything was perfect, very quiet and peaceful.
    Showers and toilets were very clean and well maintained.
    Staff were very friendly and helpful.
    We were given a folder on arrival with all the local information on
    anything you could want.
    The play area in the middle is a good idea as you can watch the kids
    from your tent.
    The kids loved picking apples and blackberries in the orchard.
    We left late Friday night instead of Saturday morning because the weather was going to break and there is nothing worse than packing up in the rain
    It has everything you could want for a relaxing break.
    We will definitely return.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing.

From the manager...

Thank you for this glowing review of our park, we are absolutely delighted that you enjoyed a relaxing break with us and look forward to your next visit :-)

Local attractions

Once you’ve filled your boots in Hay-on-Wye’s numerous bookshops, there’s more to do in town, including exploring the castle, strolls and picnics by the river, and fortifying stops in the many hostelries and eateries.

If you fancy further river ventures, make for Glasbury 10 minutes away to hire canoes and kayaks down the Wye. Should you prefer the ease of an engine-driven craft, the base at Llangattock (40 minutes) has cruisers for daily hire.

If it’s walks at height you’re after, Talgarth (15 minutes) is a starting point for paths up the Beacons’ highest mountain, Waun Fach; for gentle wooded wanders with a waterfall at the end, plus wildlife spotting on the way, head over to the Pwll y Wrach nature reserve (20 minutes).

To see the Beacons on horseback, there are treks of various lengths from Llangorse Multi Activity Centre (25 minutes), as well as indoor climbing and high up zipwires and rope walks both inside and out. If that’s not energetic enough, Oakerwood Leisure (40 minutes) has pastimes like paintballing, quad biking and clay pigeon shooting to get the adrenaline pumping.

Historical type? You can clamber round ancient sites like Crickhowell Castle and Llanthony Priory (35 and 45 minutes), puff through the hills on the Brecon Mountain Railway from Pant (50 minutes), or descend deep into mining heritage at the Big Pit National Coal Museum, an hour away.

Must see

  • Brecon Mountain Railway (21.7 miles)
  • Blaenavon Ironworks (21.7 miles)
  • Big Pit: National Coal Museum (21.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Cwmmau Farmhouse (6.3 miles)
  • The Weir (14.8 miles)
