Second camp of the holidays, and this one was a real treat. Really family friendly, with lovely on site lake, excellent inclusive facilities and on site shop. Make a note of the mobile food van on tuesday and friday evenings, great food.

A few local pubs, but with Builth and Llandod very nearby (by car or bike 5-7 miles)there is plenty to see and do if your visit is a short one.

Site manager keeps everyone in order, but in a friendly and polite way - good to know that someone is looking out for you.

Spent a couple of days here after the August bank holiday. The location was beautiful, the facilities excellent and scrupulously kept (others have mentioned the toilet and shower block, freezer cabinets and small shop, so I won't go into details, except my son says the sausages are brilliant whilst I wish I had had more of the honey ice cream).

There is a lake for fishing, and another for boating/messing about. My son made good use of the latter, which also has benches dotted around so those who don't want to get wet can watch. The lakeside also made for a pleasant walk and the opportunity to sit and enjoy the scenery.

The site was quiet when we visited, sufficiently so for the swallows (?Martins? always get the two confused) to be flying close across the field. There were enjoyable walks up the hill, and at the end of the day the Hundred House pub provided a substantial meal.

Unfortunately, when we arrived we managed to break a tent pole, but the owner was very helpful in letting us have some tape to fix it, so disaster was avoided. When we came to leave, the car wouldn't start. The mobile reception on site is temperamental (at least so far as our network is concerned) so I went to the office to request the use of a landline. When I explained why - no problem, and no need to ring the RAC: 5 minutes later a tractor arrived at our car with jump leads, the engine roared into life and we were safely on our way home again. Huge thanks to those of the team who helped us on those occasions; I can't speak highly enough of the assistance we received.

Definitely want to return.

Visited this site for the first time due to all the great reviews on here and we absolutely loved it and can see why others do too.

Although the site was busy it never felt like it, there was plenty of space for everyone & the same at the showers.

We enjoyed lots of walks which you can do straight from the site as well as walks round the beautiful lakes where you can now stop & have a rest on the swing seat which was put in during our stay, a lovely addition in a great spot.

We also enjoyed the takeaway Thai food which was also something new whilst we were there a night off from the BBQ!

We visited the local area including Builth Wells, Llandridod & Hay on Wye but we really enjoyed our days on site just chilling & relaxing & nights sat round the fire pit toasting marshmallows.

It really is a great site in a super location and one we shall definitely be returning to.

This is our second visit to Fforest Fields, the first since the new block has been constructed. I agree with the reviewer who said that the minute you get on site there is a feeling of relaxation and tranquility. Although a large site, the way the pitches are laid out it does not feel large and even though there are loads of children it was not noisy, again I think due to the lay out of the pitches. The new shower block is indeed fantastic with plenty of toilets and showers and very clean.

We bought bread, bacon and sausage while we were there - highly recommended, the eggs were not that special.

The TV reception is poor so we have now invested in a satellite dish having spoken to a fellow caravaner who swears by his - fingers crossed it works!

The lakes are fantastic for either swimming, canoeing, throwing the stick in for the dogs or just stroll. There are plenty of walks from the site and plenty in the surrounding area.

All in all a fabulous site. A 9 for location just because it is quite a way from Builth Wells to get a daily paper!

Another stay at Fforest Fields reminds me once again that this is a very special place. This was amply demonstrated by the number of people we met again from last year. Excellent welcome, the best showers and facilities I have ever seen on a campsite, and that rather unique atmosphere that relaxes you almost upon arrival. Quite simply the reference point for all campsites that we visit, and a powerful incentive to motor there from far afield. The owners have lovingly crafted over many seasons a very memorable holiday experience. Long may that continue!

Every year we visit Fforest Fields we never imagine anything could improve as we feel it is our perfect site. This year it is only a couple of small cosmetic things, but once again they have been so sympathetically blended into the surroundings you'd think they had always been there. I am referring to two new wooden structures at the long lake, a shelter with picnic table in at the corner of the jetty end which provides shelter from both sun and the occasional shower, and a lovely swinging seat which was completed while we were there halfway down the side of the lake, what better vantage point could you have to watch the evening sunset.

The facilities block is as clean and well presented as it was when first built two years ago and the bacon on sale in the reception is just as good too!

Perfect sized pitches, perfect surroundings with well tended plants and flowers around the site and perfect hosts - Fforest Fields, the perfect site for us!

Very good site boating lake and lots of good walks the facilities are the best we've found, by far as good as caravan club & caravan & camping club sites, very clean and tidy all the time. Also a washing up indoors and even a drying room. The only down sides not very motorhome friendly no service points and can only pitch in the one part of the site. Tv very poor you need satellite to get any thing. Dogs not on leads and running around the site and messing on other pitches note I have a dog myself and he is always on a lead on site

Management response: Thank you for leaving a review of Fforest Fields.

Regarding your comments "Dogs not on leads and running around the site and messing on other pitches" This is not an accurate statement, we ask that dogs are always on leads while on the site, there is plenty of walking for your dogs directly off the site.

I am sorry that you did not inform us of your concerns at the time but I believe this to be a one off and not a regular occurrence.

Stayed here at the end of July. What can I say about this site? Other than it was a haven of tranquility.

On arrival, I was walked to an area and chose our pitch.

Facilities on site were great, showers & toilet blocks were pristine! We used the family bathroom as it made life easier with the little'un!

We are returning in September for another weekend - we can't wait!

This must have been one of the best campsite we stayed in, really well laid out, even though there were quite a few people on the campsite it never really felt as if it was crowded (mostly due to the number of trees and bushes that were all over the site).

The toilet and showers were clean and of really good standard.

The fishing pond really made our sons day as he got to have a go with him birthday present (and he even caught a fish!) the pond was so peaceful and it was lovely to just sit in the morning sun and watch the dragonflies.

It was a little strange to not see anyone from the campsite the entire time we were there, no one in the office or anywhere to be seen when we first arrived (so we just followed the directions on the desk) and there never seemed to be anyone there whenever any of us walked past (apart from once when when our son was walking past and asked about fishing - but they were gone again by the time I got there). There was a mobile number so I'm guessing I could have got hold of someone if we had needed to though, and the information in and around the office was pretty comprehensive.

This was our second visit to Fforest Fields and it did not disappoint. We had a really warm welcome from the owner and were soon sited in our favourite pitch near to the lake. The facilities continue to be as spacious and clean as we remember them, the showers are wonderful, and the bacon and orange juice from the shop is worth a visit alone! We came here because our border collie had such a good time last year, and this year was even better. We found loads of new trails around the site and I really wish we could have stayed longer. There is a lot of new planting of cherry and rowan trees on the lower slopes of the hills, which will bring in even more assorted birds when they start to fruit - though there was no shortage of wildlife this time, and we were pleased to see again the red kite, buzzard and redstarts which we saw for the first time last year. If you are a dog owner/walker/nature photographer, look no further - this is the site for you.
