“Surprise.”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

This was a surprise break booked by my other half (therefore my review is not commenting on the cost - I don't know!)

We used one of the pre-erected tents that included a futon bed, side tables and a candle chandelier. The site was really quiet although it was the summer holidays (mid week) which was perfect for us. Everything you needed was provided and the shower block was of a very high standard for camping! Having the tent set up made the usual hustle and bustle of camping obsolete, which for a short break is perfect. Mick onsite is very helpful and organised for us to canoe on the wye.

Hay is only a 5 min drive away (make sure you go the granary for brekkie.)

A lovely way to camp (glamp!)

This venue is the only place to stay whilst enjoying the Hay Festival and for other activities as well. Sign up to the newsletter and you will be kept up to date with whats happening Spend the last 10 days in the most idyllic spot in Hay on Wye 5 mins from the Festival site yet so calm and peaceful. Mike and Sharon run it like home from home clean well run and organised Food at the pop up pub was the best we had during our stay.
Everything perfect thanks to Mike Sharon and the team for another great experience it just keeps happening

We spent four days in the company of Mike and Sharon and enjoyed every minute. They took all of us indoor rock climbing, absailing and taught us archery. The house itself was warm and inviting, even though it was freezing outself. The whole place was lovely and clean with great ammenities I would highly recommend this holiday to evenyone, those with and without children.

Just stayed for 2 nights at this campsite. Owners Mick and Sharon were very friendly and helpful. Even helped us out when the tent malfunctioned. We went on their canoeing trip on the Wye which was great. Kids did archery and zip wire which they loved. Clean toliets and showers. The showers were nice and hot. All in all a brilliant campsite. Looking forward to returning.

We stayed here during the festival week based on the review here. The site and the welcoming manner of Mick, Sharon and their team more than lived upto the expectations. What a fantastic site!
Despite some miserable weather this was a clean, friendly set up and we will most definately be back again.

What a find! Mick & Sharon have set up a fantastic activity and camping centre here, 15 minutes flat walk from Hay, perfectly positioned to explore the area. We stayed in one of the Bell tents which looked brand new and came well supplied for all our needs. It was so nice to be able to have a fire pit right next to your tent! The showers and toilets were very clean with a plentiful supply of hot running water, which after the wet weekend of gorge walking and kayaking we had, was well needed! Their hospitality and professionalism was brilliant, the kit was all excellent and we would not hesitate in recommending Outdoor@Hay for anyone wanting a quiet camp, to those wanting all out adventure. Many thanks guys, Dave, Ben & Si.

Room Tip: The Bell tents are great value and cosy but you do have to stoop in and out of them. The teepees are...
