Outside Cayo Retreat

General

  • On a working farm with stunning views of the Black Mountains
  • A 25-minute drive from Abergavenny and 35 minutes from Hay-on-Wye
  • Blaenavon Ironworks and National Coal Museum within a 40-minute drive

Picture the scene: it’s day one of your hols, you wake to the sounds of birdcalls, you sneak a peek outside and there, in all their glory, are the Black Mountains. If this sounds just splendid (because you're a sensible sort), head along to Cayo Retreat, a family-friendly site in Herefordshire, 25 minutes’ drive from Abergavenny.

On a working farm, this site is the epitome of peaceful: five minutes up a small country road from the nearest habitation, there’s no foot traffic (or regular traffic) passing by to break the quiet, and wanders with your dog through woodland and along the banks of the private stretch of river running through the site should soothe troubled minds (and energetic mutts) right quick.

Lengthier rambles are within easy reach too, as the Black Mountains – and the Brecon Beacons National Park, and the long-distance Offa’s Dyke Path – are on the England-Wales border less than a mile’s saunter away across fields.

When it comes to eats, the perennially hungry are well catered for: the pretty little village of Longtown is a 15-minute walk from base for a small well-stocked shop and a local pub serving food.

Please note

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

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

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Dogs are not allowed in the static caravan at any time: a kennel is provided for them to stay in.

    Everything. The quiet. The simplicity. The views. The owner ( John is fabulous - super friendly and attentive )
    This was our second visit and most certainly not our last. We were one of only 3 tents staying this weekend which was bliss. ( we stayed before and it was much busier which was still great but this time we came without the kids so the quiet was appreciated ) We ventured up the hill and followed the footpaths for a lovely walk with the dog on the Saturday. Came back down and had a splash in the stream ( my favourite part of the site) to cool off. Led in the sun and enjoyed the silence. We especially enjoy being able to have our own campfire. The loos were clean and well stocked. And John made sure the weather was wonderful for us too!! We will definitely be back hopefully in a few weeks before the weather gets too cold

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The site’s not just well set up for ramblers… Other energetic types will be best pleased by how close National Cycle Route 42 is (just a 15-minute drive, or 30-minute cycle), and those who like to get up close with the local(ish) wildlife have only a 15-minute drive to source llama trekking.

People craving high-octane adventures can opt instead for the mountain adventure centre 10 minutes away, which covers lots of different bases: guests can get competitive on the paintball field, get adrenaline pumping on the quads, hovercrafts or rally karts, test mettle on the assault course or try out marksmanship with some clay pigeon shooting.

Anyone after a more laidback hol should maybe follow in historical footsteps instead: get a feel for the industry of this part of the UK at Blaenavon Ironworks and Big Pit National Coal Museums, both about 40 minutes away, or mosey around the ruins at Skenfrith Castle 35 minutes from base.

Prefer some urban days? Head to Abergavenny – known hereabouts as a ‘gateway to Wales’ – 25 minutes from the site for indie shops and foodie stops, or Hay-on-Wye 35 minutes away for leafing through nearly two dozen bookshops.

Must see

  • Blaenavon Ironworks (12.7 miles)
  • Blaenavon World Heritage Centre & Tourist Information Centre (12.9 miles)
  • Big Pit: National Coal Museum (13.3 miles)
