Peace & tranquility in the wild Welsh Marches


Welcome to our hideaway in the little village of Craswall close to the book town of Hay-on-Wye. Our camping pitches are spread over 15 acres of wildflower fields bordered by ancient woodland.

Children can make dens, run in the woods and play games in the long grass.

The pastures are a spectacle throughout the spring and summer with a show of bluebells and a host of other wild flowers.

Mown paths wind down to a hand-crafted oak framed hut with a Chestnut shingle roof, based on a Saxon Romanian field barn design, which houses loos and hot showers (no coins or tokens required!).

Travel by car, walk or cycle, via public footpaths, bridleways and quiet country roads to Hay, the Golden Valley and over the Black Mountains to Llanthony, Llanveynoe and the secluded Olchon Valley.


 Wild flower meadows, den building in the woods, camp fires, mountain walks. 


The Black Mountains,  Herefordshire's Golden Valley, Hay on Wye. 

Some of our reviews 

"We had a great weekend, I just wanted to say what a great job you have done on your campsite, it's beautiful. We particularly loved the experience of camping in a meadow rather than the finely manicured lawns you find on some sites. I'm sure we will be returning at some point."

"We had an excellent stay in May. Very quiet and beautiful. Gorgeous view. Friendly and knowledgable owners. We'd revisit - highly recommend. Anna - 2018 

Just returned from a beautiful 5 nights at Chapel House Farm. The site has lots of lovely pitches with views of the black mountains. Our three children really enjoyed the den building, as well as the beautiful starry skies at night. Craswell is quite remote, but that meant the peace and quiet was magical. The shower block is a short walk through the field-(lots of fairy lights), but provided an adventure at bedtime for teeth brushing etc-our littlest loved this part of the day. It all added to the Magic of the stay. It was nice to see a greener approach, with compost loo etc. We found the shop in longtown great for supplies, and also had a great meal at the pub there! Lots of gorgeous walks in the area, with spectacular views etc. We will be back again next year! X

Fantastic campsite in amazing surroundings! A big field at the foot of the Black Mountains in a secluded valley. Great mown pitches in a wildflower meadow, and good facilities: great shower, washing up - both included with the price - very friendly proprietors, and a selection of produce. I can recommend the cider with elderflower. And the amber ale, come to think of it! You feel very valued and welcomed in this gem of a campsite. I was even lucky with the weather: sun evening and morning, and fabulous stars at night, as you are miles from any town. Highly recommended. OC, May 2018
