Books + Black Mountains + Welsh walks + Wye fishing = happy sigh. And all are around Black Mountain View Caravan Park in Powys: it's a mere mile and a half from Hay-on-Wye, in the Wye Valley, a short walk from Offa's Dyke Path – you'll probably figure out that mountain views are on offer here too…?
Run by James and his family team (described as 'friendly', 'attentive', 'helpful' and even 'delightful' by previous guests), Black Mountain View is a small, relaxed and simple holiday park on an organic smallholding on the Powys/Herefordshire border. Comings and goings are a cinch, thanks to excellent access from the main road (no worries about road noise though – even A roads are pretty quiet in this part of the world).
Pony treks, canoe paddles, golf days and bike-based outings are all good outdoorsy options in the surrounds, as are the many walks on offer. If you don't fancy tackling the entire Offa's Dyke Path (177 miles… not for the faint-legged) perhaps the 40-minute riverside section that takes you into Hay-on-Wye is a more palatable idea, still with those cracking mountain views. Fond of fishing? Bring your kit and licence to scout about for barbel, chub and dace in the Wye waters just next to the site.
James and family have had many a touring holiday themselves, so know that good clean facilities are at the top of most campers' and caravanners' list for ticking: the amenities here include a recently-built toilet and shower block which also has disabled facilities and a family room.

Head to Hay for books, books and more books, and pub lunches/dinners in sunny beer gardens or indoors by roaring fires. The famed Hay Festival runs for 10 days each late May/early June; also in the area, check out the Brecon Jazz Festival at Brecon (20 minutes' drive) in August and Royal Welsh Show at Builth Wells (25 minutes) in July, the biggest agricultural show in the world.
Heading outdoors, the Black Mountains, Wye Valley and Brecon Beacons National Park are beacons for those who like tramping around the outdoors: there are way too many activities and options to list here, but popular options include cycling, pony trekking, golfing, climbing, canoeing, potholing, whitewater rafting, fishing...
Over the border, Herefordshire and the Golden Valley, in the lee of the Black Mountains, also have quite the pile going on, and amid similarly splendid scenery too. Visit Arthur's Stone (20 minutes) if you'd like to see what a neolithic burial chamber looks like after 5,000 or so years (pretty well preserved is the answer), or head on to Hereford (half an hour) for museums, the cathedral and tasty foodie/drinkie pickings.
