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.

    Loved this place! Excellent facilities, individual bathrooms/shower rooms. All lovely and clean, all other facilities in the same area and close within the camping field. Lovely big playground in the centre, so you can see it from wherever you are pitched. Lovely walks close by, and lots to do in the area. Lovely orchard and herb garden on site. Fantastic views. Would recommend and revisit! Beautiful little site.

    We have stayed at Borders Hideaway on 4 occasions now & still want to go back. It is a wonderfully located site on the border of Herefordshire & Powys ideal for exploring all the walks & countryside of both counties. The site is run extremely efficiently by Tracy & her partner. The shower block/toilet facilities are spotless & a credit to them as is the fact that the whole site is wildlife & environmentally friendly, winning various David Bellamy awards. I cannot rate this site highly enough.

    5*+. Beautiful setting, campsite grounds are very organised and extremely well maintained. Great site for any age to be based. The staff are very friendly and helpful. You receive a welcome pack upon arrival, which along with a mini tourist information centre is very useful. The shower blocks are amazing! Each cubical has its own shower, loo and sink, they really do deserve their 'loo of the year' award. This is not a joke! Complimentary wasing up liquid is a nice touch, as is free WiFi and free view tv access. Great location for Hay on Wye, Brecon etc.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed being here at Borders. It is nice to hear that you enjoyed the fruit from the Orchard - we have had a bumper crop this year so we need our customers to 'tuck in'!

We look forward to your return visit./
