Currently still on site, but worthy of review already. Booked a lovely long weekend, end September. 2 adults, 2 teens and 2 doggies.

First impressions were wonderful, given option to pitch where we wanted, but really hard to decide as all pitches are spacious and pretty. We opted to pitch in the unmarked area by the stream. Wouldn't have done this if we had been forecast rain, lol. Lovely spacious and relaxing pitch with the sound of babbling water - bliss. Site not busy at all.

Showers/loos are spotless, modern and warm. Best I have seen tbh.

Shop/reception is often unmanned but they operate an honesty box. If you have queries I would leave a note on desk.

Customer service is excellent. We came away and realised we had forgotten saucepans and cutlery. We went to reception to ask details of local supermarket and were offered loan of missing items. So kind and saved us a fortune.

There are lots of other dog families on the site but everyone is respectful and keeps them on leads. Ours like bed the amazing walks from site and also the swimming in the lake. It's wonderful to have happy tired doggies at the end of each day :-) as for the teenagers - they were delighted with the free wifi. Signal was fab where we were pitched. They have even said they would like to stay here again.

We will definitely be back - as soon as we can. Reasons why:

1. Service/friendliness of owners and staff

2. Peace and quiet

3. Stunning location

4. Wonderful walks

5. Fantastic modern facilities.

Thank you Fforest Fields :-)

What an amazing site! Wonderful showers and toilets, freezer/fridge room with charging points for phones etc and washing up and laundry rooms. All spotless, modern and warm! A little shop and a cafe selling lovely wine and ciders along with coffees/teas and toasties/pastries etc. On certain evenings they have fresh cooked foods in the courtyard, Thia or woodfired pizza oven. Friendly helpful owners how couldn't do enough. Beautiful surroundings and a lake with various canoe/supboarding activities. Looking forward to returning next year with our new caravan!

We spend august bank holiday at this wonderful site; it came highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. Even though our visit was near the end of the season, there was still ample lush grass to pitch on rather than muddy patches that are often encountered at the end of the season.

The facilities at this site are the best we have experienced in the UK. While the site was busy there was still plenty of space, tents were not crammed together and there remained large open spaces for children to play in.

The ability to have a campfire is always a welcome addition to any camping trip and we often like to cook on a wood fire. Fires and barbecues must be off the ground and an ample supply of bricks is available to aid this.

We enjoyed some canoeing down the river Wye but with so much more to do, we will definitely return.

After looking much searching for a campsite where our family of 5 could have a break away and enjoy some outdoors activities we found Fforest Fields. Even before booking I was sold on the place, the reality was every bit as good as the expectations.

The site was well signposted from Builth Wells and easy to access. On arrival we were given a wonderful welcome. After a chat about what we were looking to do my other half was given a tour of the options and the benefits. We were really looking forward to Mountain Biking and Kayaking so chose a pitch close to the lake. The pitches weren't squashed in together and there was plenty of breathing space.

The facilities were the best we have experienced, plenty of clean hot showers and wash basins to the indoor washing up area. Not to mention the Fridges and Freezers all free to use. With wetsuits and swimming gear the drying room was a godsend too! When you had in a shop with honesty box, cafe serving great food and local produce it just gets better and better. We loved the Wood Fired Pizza oven nights, the Thai caterer.

For us, you couldn't been on site cycle trails including British XC Mountain Bike course leading onto a huge expanse of ridge to ride. The lake was a great hit too. Our days consisted of a couple of hours mountain biking, food, couple of hours kayaking and swimming before more food; a relax and bed. The smiles didn't leave our faces the whole time! On the whole the facilities matched the attitude of the owners, incredibly friendly, genuinely interested in their customers having a great time and not out to squeeze every penny out. It was incredibly refreshing and the reason we have already booked to go for a long weekend in September and are looking at a longer stay next summer.

What speaks volumes is the number of people who have seen out photos of the camping trip and said, 'that' Fforest Fields! Its Awesome there!'

Fantastic site!

A rural location which is what we were looking for.

We really liked this site. The toilet and shower block were immaculate and the site was thoughtfully laid out. The shop was well stocked and open all of the time. There was also a little cafe which we would have used if it had rained and we didn't fancy cooking.

This is a lovely site, nestled in amongst some stunning scenery and dramatic hills. As you enter the site you can see straight away that it is a site of quality with well-kept pitches amongst lovely landscaping. The welcome on checking in was one of the most – if not the most – friendly check-ins I have ever had at any site and you get the immediate impression that these are people who actually do this because they enjoy it. We were shown to our pitch on the sports field and this was spacious and well kept. Along with the reception, in the same block there are the toilets and showers and a little tea room. We didn’t use the tea room as we didn’t have the time on this visit, but will certainly try it on our next visit. This was a dreadful weekend for weather but the toilets and showers were very well maintained throughout the day. It is possible to hire a fire-pit and you can buy kindling and logs at a reasonable price. This was a highlight for our ten year old son who loved having a fire on the pitch. The reception office also houses a small shop where you can get the essentials at reasonable prices and I cannot recommend the bacon they sell highly enough. One of the selling points for me is that there was no pressure to leave by a certain time on the departure day. All in all, this site lives up to the expectations we had from reading other reviews and we will go back to it time and time again.

Just returned from our second seven night stay at this beautiful site. Situated in a valley with two large lakes one that can be used for swimming or boating (dogs too), the other for fishing. Amenity block has shop, cafe, laundry, drying room, potwashing, fridges and freezers and of course showers and toilets. All of these are kept spotless at all times

We ate at both Fforest Inn a small pub which serves good food and beers with carvery on Sunday. The Severn Stars at Aberdwe a real local pub with great food and service both within walking distance. Also tried the on site cafe and Thai van on Friday (Research purposes obviously).

Visited the waterfall walks near Neath which are well worth the effort also the Elan Valley resevoirs stunning scenery and engineering in one location with steep drops at the roadside as you hug the hillside and criss cross the resevoirs. Took the mountain road to Aberystwyth whick is not for the faint hearted but very rewarding.

Unfortunately you can only score out of 10 but this site needs 11

Lovely site with excellent shower block in a good location for travelling around the Brecon beacons and the pitches were pretty level my only disappointment was that there was nobody about to keep an eye on the place during the day also the cafe was not open while we were there otherwise it would have been a 10 out of 10

We arrived at this excellent site and were immediately impressed with its good layout and general all round newness and cleanliness – quite simply – lovely.

The advert in the Caravan Club Book says exactly how it is; everything is as the advert relates. There was a special offer for us oldies of 14 instead of 18 pounds per night on our visit.

We were given a special part of the site which was dedicated as a “quiet zone”, no noisy children or adults - a real gift after our last stop.

We experienced extremely strong gales at one point and I was glad the hard standing we had was able to hold onto the awning nails and so we did not have any trouble in that department.

Very friendly and helpful staff.

There is an honesty box in reception if you needed to buy anything whilst the office was unmanned. There is bread, orange juice, frozen meat etc available anytime.

A cafe has recently been installed which was ideal for a quick snack or drink.

Free WiFi was available which worked fine however our DTV reception was very poor, Sky was ok

Lots of walks from the site, with the Brecon Beacons within striking distance by car.

There are 140 pitches and no Static Caravans, a lot of thought had gone into this site, everything was very good. I was particularly impressed with the hardstanding we had.

On Friday nights there is a Thai Mobile Van which sells delicious Thai food. On Saturday nights there is a Pizza oven working on site.

Excellent views all round.

Highly recommend this site - it is first class and excellent value for money.

In my opinion 5 starts are not enough so I would also add a “Golden Tick”

Stopped here for one night on the way back up to Scotland having collected a trailer tent from down south.

So glad that we did, what a lovely site.

So much to do for the kids and so much space for them to run around.

Facilities were looked new and were spotless, we didn't need them but there was a whole row of fridges and freezers rather than just one.

Only negative is that at £30 a night for two adults and two kids with a hookup its the most expensive site that we have stayed on.
