Outdoors@Hay: The Nordsman

General

  • Spacious rural site at an outdoor activity centre in rural Powys
  • A mile from Hay-on-Wye; on the edge of the Brecon Beacons
  • Canoeing, archery, mountain biking and other activities on site

Families, groups, couples, adventure-seekers, bookish types… all are welcome at Outdoors@Hay, a spacious site in the Powys countryside around a mile from Hay-on-Wye.

This area, at the northern tip of the Brecon Beacons National Park and close to the River Wye, is well known for its outdoor activities – and organising them is supremely straightforward for guests at this site. The accommodation here is linked to an outdoor centre that runs all sorts of activities, including canoeing, archery, raft building, gorge walking and bushcraft courses, all under expert supervision and suitable for beginners as well. You’ll need to book ahead for these, so ask for info using the requests box once you’ve booked your stay.

Having lots of activities and accommodation on site makes this a good spot for group activity breaks or a couple of families holidaying together, but that’s not the only way to have a break here. Outdoors@Hay is also a handy location for independent days out, hiking or cycling along local routes or heading into Hay-on-Wye to see the castle, drink in cosy pubs and browse the famed bookshops.

Whatever you choose to get up to by day, a good night’s sleep should be in order – this is a peaceful site surrounded by trees and open space (and please note that it is not suitable for stag/hen parties or other noisy gatherings). The setup is traditional but well kept, with facilities stretching to the use of a fridge and washing-up area, plus toilets and showers. Campfires and barbecues are permitted but will need to be raised off the ground to avoid scorching the grass.

    The hosts - Mick & Sharon - were fantastic, so friendly & welcoming, and full of advice about the local area; nice walks etc. Great campsite, our Yurt had absolutely everything you could need, plus a huge comfy bed.
    Shower & toilet block was modern & kept spotlessly clean.
    Also loved the bar, lounge area & outside seating.

    Facilities were top notch, fantastic. Toilets and showers clean and well maintained. Quiet and peaceful, except wildlife, but thats what you want in the countryside isn't it🙂. On site bar and cafe selling local produce is a nice touch. You can book kayaking with hosts taking you on the beautiful river wye. And owner Mick is and absolute treat, friendly and full of local knowledge.
