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.

    On arrival the booking in was efficient and a very friendly welcome. The pitch we
    were given had wonderful views. The one thing that set this site above many was how very clean and well kept it was the toilets and showers were cleaned twice a day with plenty of hot water.A nice touch was how they are mindful of the wildlife they are

lovely site but impractical for motor homes IMO. 06/04/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom jean_t373980 Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric asphalt touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Charming character of site, maintained to high standard.

    Disliked: 

    Limited pitches for motor homes. Situated on a very tight corner pitch, van sloped despite use of chocks/blocks. We should have researched location better, whilst only a mile from local village, it was entirely uphill, and a further 1 and half miles to Hay town. Would have been completely impractical to use motorhome into village/town. Wouldn’t return with motorhome due to site location, but it’s a shame, since it really is a well kept, lovely site.

From the manager...

Thank you for your taking the time to write a review, we appreciate your comments.

  • Liked: 

    We stayed on the wild campsite without a hook-up. Nice big area slightly sloped. Will book the hook -up next time. Toilets and shower block very clean. Nice play area for young children. Staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.

    Disliked: 

    No large flat grass area for boys to play football or cricket.

Thank you for your positive comments. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Lovely, well maintained site, with beautiful views from our tent door! 06/01/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Helen B. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch (wild)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Pretty, very well maintained campsite, with welcoming and friendly site managers. We really liked the separate 'tent' camping field, which had lovely large pitches and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.
    Toilet and shower facilities were excellent, and were cleaned frequently, as were the washing up facilities.
    It was very helpful to have free wi-fi.

    Disliked: 

    Dog owners tended to use the wild camping field as their dog walking and toileting area, which wasn't so great if you are camping there!
    It would be helpful to have a water point in the wild camping field.

From the manager...

Thank you, we appreciate your comments. We are looking into putting a water point in the wild camping field :-)
