This is a little gem
We were touring so only stayed one night. Site was spacious and clean. We met Peter who gave us a warm welcome. He was very chatty and friendly along with his daughter, Lynda, who was equally as friendly. This site is quiet and is right next to Hay on Wye so makes it a perfect location to walk into the town. Our dogs loved the local walks along the river . We have a 7.5 metre in length motor home and although the entrance to the site was a bit tight it is managable so long as you are careful. The site is reasonably flat and has loads of space which we found was advantageous with having two dogs. I highly recommend this site .
A hidden gem
Tucked away on the edge of town this site is the ideal location for exploring Hay on Wye, taking the Wye River walks or enjoying the surrounding countryside. Being tucked away it is not the easiest to find but the owners do a great job with directions and signposting the gate. Don't be put off by the narrow track we got in easily in our motorhome and so did a large caravan and Landrover. The turn out again was a bit tight. We would definitely come here again it is all about the location. Plenty of dog walks and swimming in the river. Great coffee and food at The Granary in town and dog-friendly pubs. The site itself has a water point and waste which was great. The owners are friendly and around if needed. HIghly recommend
Dark Orchard is a lovely site. It is hard to beleive it is on the edge the town of Hay-on-Wye, it feels very rural and quiet. It is a flat field mostly surrounded by trees and with a small stream running along the edge which adds interest. The water and waste points appear to have been upgraded recently. Access is good though very large caravans might find the turn off the lane a bit sharp. The local CO-OP is conveniently close and the town is only 5 to 10 mins walk. Jonathan
