It has now been passed onto Rachel and her partner Lewis who are totally committed to their exciting new venture in one of the most idyllic settings in Wales.

If you are a golfer, then you’re in luck as conveniently situated right on the doorstep is Cradoc Golf Club where you can either enjoy a round on the Championship course, knock some balls on the driving range, or just head down to the clubhouse for a drink and a bite to eat. The famous book town of Hay on Wye and the home of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show - Builth Wells are only a stones throw away.

 

We are a Caravan and Motorhome Club member and have caravan, motorhome and tent pitches available.
