Oatcroft: Looking towards Worcestershire

General

  • Wild camping on a working farm in the Welsh Marches
  • 10 minutes’ drive to Presteigne and Kington; 30 minutes to Hay-on-Wye
  • Dog-friendly, off-grid; panoramic views into Wales and towards Malvern

Stay a while at Oatcroft, a remote wild campsite on the borderland between Wales and England, and explore the wealth of walking trails connecting hills, valleys and history. With Offa’s Dyke and Mortimer’s Trail passing close by and the Wych Way leading from nearby Kington through to the Cotswolds, there are routes here to suit everyone from Sunday strollers to long-distance hikers.

This simple site on a working farm in rural Herefordshire has far reaching views into Wales and across to the Malverns. About a mile away, the village of Titley has a pub where you can fill up after the day’s exertions or within 10 minutes’ drive you’ll find pubs, restaurants, takeaways and shops in the market towns of Presteigne and Kington.

For pastimes that don’t involve donning your walking boots, take some quiet time at Titley Pool – a nature reserve surrounding one of the largest natural open areas of water in Herefordshire. Or experience tee-time at the highest 18-hole course in England at Kington Golf Club (15 minutes’ drive). The famed book town of Hay-on-Wye – with more than 20 second-hand bookshops and all manner of intriguing shops to explore besides – right on the England/Wales border is worth a visit any time of year, but becomes a real kingdom of culture each year during the literary festival.

On site you can park your car by your pitch and bring your dog along. Groups, solo travellers and families are all welcome to experience the joys of getting back-to-nature in this secluded part of the Welsh Marches.

Please note

The park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Breed-specific legislation (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality flashlight with them as parts of the park are unlit.

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

There are no garbage cans onsite: all garbage will need to be taken home with you.

    Oatcrofr Farm is the most beautiful campsite in the whole of England/Wales! It was heavenly... The dogs and I thoroughly enjoyed walking the Mortimer Trail, a gloriously peaceful campsite. Hosted by Philip who is a mine of information about local history of the area. As it is a proper working farm I suggest when booking to give an estimated time of your arrival to help Philip know when to be ready to met and greet you and show you up to the campsite.
    There is an abundance of space on well managed, level turf for you to chose where to *Pitchup* your tent. With a quaint, clean compost toilet and fresh water close by... I could really appreciate getting away from it all and being at one with nature as I listened to the sound of owls hooting in the nearby wooded copses and bats flitting about above me as their nocturnal day began, all in the stillness of the evening under the mass of the starfilled sky.

    the location is great, drive through a working farm up a single track lane. Phillip took around the pitches in his land rover so I could choose from
    different locations. Decided on the top of a hill set up and noticed the silence immediately.

    fresh water was supplied a short walk away from the bore hole (so no fluoride).

    Had a good walk around the local area on offas dyke, beautiful scenery, finished the day cooking on an open fire.

    Oatcroft is in an absolutely beautiful wild camping location in fields high on the hill above Titley with fantastic almost 360˚ degree views across to the Malvern Hills, Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains, and beyond.
    This was the last stay on our trip through Cumbria and Wales and was by far the most alluring spot we found. Surrounded by fields, woods and meadows and with fantastic walking on the doorstep including proximity to Offas Dyke, Oatcroft is a peaceful and secluded oasis in an outstanding location and with only the lights of the distant scattered farmhouses at night.
    Philip, who farms here, met us at the farmhouse and took us up to the meadows where we were allowed to choose our perfect location on the crest of the hill looking down towards the lake. He was a mine of information on the area and its history, identifying the various hill and mountain ranges in the distance, and returning a little later to lend us a book written by a previous resident which he thought we would find interesting (we did, and have subsequently ordered it for ourselves).
    Philip would also have provided a loo and water if required, although we didn't need these services. We highly recommend this place if you love space, views and remotely beautiful seclusion.

    If you like your campsite so quiet you can hear the rustle of a mouse in a nearby hedge, then Oatcroft is the place for you! On arrival Philip (the farmer) showed us to a choice of pitches, each remote, beautiful and unique. We chose one right on the top of the hill, sheltered by trees. With reaching views down to the Black Mountains, we couldn't see anything man made. Yet Philip had provided a water supply and a portaloo for our sole use. He came to check everything was ok every morning and would chat about farming, the local area and gave us lots of ideas for things to do.
    There's lots of walks around the area and we enjoyed cycling around the Black and White Villages nearby. The Stagg Inn in the village does great meals and is very friendly
    I really couldn't have stayed anywhere nicer. Yes, its basic, it won't suit if you want mod cons, but the peace and tranquility was the perfect antidote to a stressful couple of years.

Local attractions

As you’d expect in such a rural idyll, there are plenty of ways to get out and enjoy the countryside within easy reach. Several pony trekking options are available within half an hour’s drive both heading into Wales and within Herefordshire and Shropshire. And you can hire a kayak or canoe at scenic spots along The River Wye.

Dip into the fascinating history of this borderland area with a trip to the picturesque market towns of Leominster (25 minutes’ drive) – well-known for its half-timbered houses and antique shops – and Ludlow (35 minutes) with its large medieval castle. Check out listings for local events as both towns host all sorts of festivals throughout the year.

This part of the world is also famous for its cider, so if you fancy a tipple you can pop to some nearby pitstops on the cider circuit at Pembridge (10 minutes) and Weobley (20 minutes) where producers will be waiting with a pint and a warm Herefordshire welcome.
