We've just come back from our third year at the Hay Festival, staying at Outdoors@hay. This is a brilliant site for the festival. The whole place is just a bit more civilised (grown up) than some of the campsites that pop up during the festival.

If you've been before, Mick & Sharon know your name the following year and are absolutely lovely hosts. They have a pop up restaurant in the barn, with some very well-kept local real ale.

The loos are clean, and cleaned really regularly even in the rainiest weather. The showers are piping hot (and also clean), there's a family bathroom too for those of you who've had enough of juggling small children in shower cubicles.

The site is divided into pitches for the festival, a basic pitch is 6x6 metres but you can add to that if you need to. It's exactly the right size for a small tent and a car though. And obviously, with so many people staying and everyone to-ing and fro-ing to events there are no camp fires during the festival.

It's a 15 minute walk to the festival site and perhaps another 15 into Hay (though there is a Festival shuttle bus)

This is a lovely site for tents planning outdoor activities. The owners are friendly and helpful, whether you're there to take part in the activities they run or using it as a base.

The loo-block is immaculate, the water is hot and plenty of it, the courtesy fridge/freezers are so handy, one of those little things that make a massive difference.

Hay is within walking distance, but takes a good twenty minutes on foot. Plenty of pubs and useful shops as well as the famous bookshops when you get there.

We appreciated being able to set up our fire on legs, and the supply of wood for it (and small gas-canisters) on an honesty self-serve system meant we were able to get on and enjoy the evening without having to interrupt the owners in their home.

We were directed to a spot which caught the end of the day sunshine, and the ground was level and soft as butter for pegging out.

We will definitely book again when we next go canoeing on the Wye.

I have given only five out ten for child-friendliness as this site would not be great for really small children. There is no play equipment or secure play area, no family bathroom etc. But so long as they're over about 5 years old, they'd be fine.

Stayed for 2 nights. Mick and Sahron were brilliant - very friendly and helpful. Site was quiet and great for families. Lots of activities available. We went with Mick canoeing on the Wye which was excellent. Kids did archery and zip wire which they loved.

Toilets and showers were very clean and not busy even though site was full. There is a cafe on site. Hay is just a short walk away. Looking forward to returning.

We attended their 'Easter Festival' and tried out lots of the activities on offer. Our 7-year old had a great time, especially collecting marshmallows and toasting them on the campfire.

Campsite is in a lovely location with lots of good walks nearby. The site was less than half-full and there was a great family atmosphere. Sharon and Mick were helpful and welcoming.

The only downside we could see was that the toilet and shower facilities, while more than adequate when we were there, might be insufficient when the site is full. Some heating in the shower block and electrical hook-ups would have been nice.

Just come back from a great weekend and a lovely camp site. Mike was very friendly and gave us local maps to see what mountains we would like to climb.

The facilities were really clean tidy and the showers nice and hot. I can't fault this camp site to be honest.

It was just off a country road but nothing to worry about, we was only a 20 min drive to the main mountains pen y fen 886 meters high which has views to die for.

The site is only a 5 min drive to the local small lovely town hay-on-way.

Can't wait to come back next year as the camp site was exactly what we was looking for hopefully next time we will take on outdoors adventures.

The surround of the camp site is just hills and fields with sheep and cows. I would suggest this camp site for first time campers as it's not a massive site.

We stayed here (late-twenties couple) on a Friday night in early August, paying 6 each for camping and 3 to hire one of their altar fires.

It's a nice flat field, next to a main(ish) road but still fairly quiet. The facilities were fine - one block near the owners' house, with several toilets, washbasins and showers in individual cubicles, and a washing-up sink. Everything was clean and there was soap and loo roll, as well as hand towels in each washbasin cubicle.

It's a bit of walk into Hay-on-Wye, but still possible, if you're feeling energetic. I'd probably stay here again and would recommend the place to couples and families. I don't really think it's one for groups - the atmosphere was friendly but pretty quiet.

All in all, nothing out of the ordinary but pretty good value, and friendly owners.
