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 happy and warm welcome we received on arrival. Tracy and Graham were very helpful and friendly, continuously checking around the site making sure all is well.
    *A beautifully mature landscaped site kept immaculate by site managers.
    *Fantastic playground to keep the little ones happy and safe, perfect in the centre of the field so parents can relax in the caravan and watch children play at all times.
    *The facilities were faultless and extremely clean, modern and well kept along with washing up and laundry areas.
    *The Orchard..... We loved exploring here and trying any rippened fruits and even making use of the herbs in evening meals, the kids loved it here.
    *Wifi

    Disliked: 

    The only fault I have is the washing machine and tumble dryer only take old £1 coins.

Fantastic friendly site in a beautiful area! 07/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Celia H. Confirmed

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

    Fabulous site. Beautiful scenery and immaculate facilities. Free hot water, showers, etc, and even free washing up liquid!
    The whole site was maintained to such a high standard, and the grounds were kept beautifully (but not so you could not enjoy them). There is even an orchard and herb garden that you can help yourself to.
    The children's play area was perfect too. Right in the middle of the campsite so the children can play safely, and parents can keep an eye on them, but from a distance - excellent!
    The static caravans are set apart, so do not really feature (if you were concerned about this). The actual campsite is smallish, so has a very friendly atmosphere, and all the campers seemed to respect the facilities.
    I never had to queue for a shower (another important fact)!
    The site is dog friendly too, with a field at the back that you can exercise your dog in (just remember to clear up after them).
    Oh, and free wifi too!!

    This has to be the best site I have visited. The site is not to big and the pitches are all a generous size. we were on pitch 9 and can highly recommend it.

    We had peace and quiet and some nice walks around the area.
    The free WiFi is better than we have at home

    We will be regular visitors without a doubt.

    Toilets and showers are the best i have seen.

Would not revisit! 29/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Neil H. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Washroom facilities and wifi.

    Disliked: 

    Being allocated a pitch for our tent (pitch 16) which was metres from a road separated by a hedge! The touring field allocated for tents is located right next to a road which is used by various vehicles at all hours - we were awoken by loud farm traffic at 2 am in the morning - far from a peaceful stay!

From the manager...

Thank you for taking time to write a review. Having spoken with you at the time and since, we are disappointed that you found the road noise disturbing. At certain times of the year the farm traffic is increased and, of course, we are unable to predict or affect the long hours, both early and late, that the Farmers have to work.
We have asked that you re-visit and hope that you do so.
Regards
