 Absolutely stunning uninterrupted views & very peaceful. Best views Iíve had from a campsite.

Quirky rustic campsite with clean showers and toilets.

1 hour easy walk along the river in to Hay-on-Wye, lovely book town filled with boutique and antique shops.

Lucie was very quick to respond to enquiries and welcoming on arrival.

Definitely keep this one on my list of go-to places to stay.

 Glorious views, great welcome and communication and all facilities were fabulously clean. We stayed during Hay Festival and it was the perfect base to chill and relax between talks. I really like the fact that cars need to be parked away from the camping field as it doesn't turn the site into a car park or detract from the amazing views.

 Wonderful campsite overlooking stunning views of the black mountains. Close proximity to the river wye for fantastic canoeing. Hay-on-Wye a short drive away with superb restaurants, pubs, cafes, book shops galore. Lovely facilities, very warm and friendly welcome and helpful reception on the campsite. Highly recommend. Will definitely be back.

 Small camping field behind the pub. Slightly uneven ground but good enough. Superb views from the bottom of the site. Camp fires allowed in designated spots. Two showers, unisex, and quite basic toilet facilities which are shared with pub guests. All facilities were kept clean and tidy. The boot room is a bonus, with a toaster, kettle and sink as well as tables and chairs. A nice garden area with tables and chairs. The field is close to the road so some traffic noise can be heard but I didn't notice a great deal of noise at night.

The pub itself is more of a restaurant with a few stools at the bar. A good range of drinks available. The food is excellent although a little pricey. I strongly recommend booking a table in advance if you intend to dine at the pub because when we arrived on a Saturday evening all the tables were reserved. However, we were offered pizza in the garden which was very nice. All staff were very friendly and accommodating. Also, the pub is only open Wednesday to Sunday. We were warned in advance of the pub closing times but it would have been helpful if we were advised of the need to reserve a table for dinner when we booked the camping.

A pleasant one-hour trek along the Wye Valley Walk takes you into Hay-on-Wye which is a pleasant little town with several pubs and restaurants. A similar distance in the other direction is Glasbury, smaller than Hay. Here we rented a Canadian kayak (seats 3) and spent a lovely afternoon paddling downstream to Hay. Wye Valley Canoes provided the kayak and they also rent out scooters if you are so inclined. They meet you at Hay, or Whitney if you rent for a whole day, and return you to Glasbury. We chose to remain in Hay and they took the kayak back. A very enjoyable afternoon and we had time to stop on a pebbled beach for sandwiches and refreshments.

We were fortunate enough to be in the area when the Three Cocks Vintage Steam Rally was held in Hay. Recommended if you like vintage steam engines, cars, motorcycles, trucks, tractors etc. As well as a car boot and helicopter rides.

 We have just returned from a weekend camping at the Radnor Arms site.

The camping is in a field behind the pub, with beautiful views. We were only using the site as a base as we were doing PR ferret work at the vintage show in Hay on Wye.

Cars are only allowed on the field to unload, load. Which if you have children is a plus. The site is very basic, with 2 unisex showers and 2 toilets in ladies and gents. These are also shared with pub visitors. They are very basic but served what we needed. There is a boot room with kettle, toaster, freezer and washing up sink.

The camping field is next to a main road, so can hear traffic, but didn't bother us at all.

The pub is very homely, excellent meals and service. Not cheap, but very tasty! Has a pretty garden area, with a summer house to use if wet.

We would go back for a weekend as a base but don't think we would spend longer as a bit too basic.

Everyone was very friendly, even the guys that stayed on friday night on a stag weekend. They were very respectful of the other campers. Well done lads!

 Excellent site with fantastic facilities. Yes it is just a field behind a pub but the view is great, you can have a camp fire,

The toilets and showers were very clean (despite sharing the showers with pub customers) and there is a terrific 'boot room' with hot and cold water, a large sink, kettle & toaster and tables and chairs inside for those times when the weather really isn't that favourable!

The food in the pub was very good and I felt good value for money too.

Pitch fees are very reasonable. All in all a great little site-the only down side is the noise from the road, although even this wasn't too loud, as you can pitch right at the end of the field and be a fair way from the road. It does quieten down over night too.

I would definitely visit again.

 Stayed in the camping field, due to weather we were the only ones there. Very nice pub, excellent service from Percy the bar man and lent us two mugs for coffee in the morning.

Have a Boot Room which is left open to campers and has facilities for making a basic breakfast. Food in the pub was excellent.

Washroom facilities are basic and clean. The showers were electric and nice and hot. Recommended for a quick stay if your on the road

 Ssshhhhh! Don't tell anybody else about this fantastic pub and campsite. The site may only be a rough field behind the pub and the toilets are shared with the pub but what a find.

The views are spectacular, there are fire pits, you can easily walk into Hay on Wye, the food though pricey is excellent and the owners are friendly and welcoming.

The boot room is a godsend on a wet and windy day with kettle and toaster. Showers were hot and clean. Cant wait to go back.

 Brilliant little campsite set in the Wye Valley, this was our first time camping and we'll definitely come back here again. Plus points: * setting - looking out over Wye Valley and hills of the Brecon Beacons

* nice facilities - showers were hot and there is a 'boot room' with sink, kettle and toaster as well as table and chairs if you need to escape the weather. They let us use their freezer to chill freezer packs and booze.

* the pub itself - Percy is great, very friendly and helpful, the food and beer are excellent, I would definitely recommend budgeting for a slap up meal here

* value for money - at 5GBP pp, pn it is excellent. In the interests of balance the only issues in my eyes are the proximity to the main road (A538 Hereford-Brecon), but it is quiet at night and traffic should only be an issue if you're really sensitive to noise. The pub is closed from Sun evening to Wed lunchtime, but I suppose it is testament to them that you want to spend time in the lovely beer garden!

In terms of attractions, Hay on Wye (book town) is close by (and can be reached in about 2 hours if you opt for the lovely riverside walk), the Brecon Beacons nearby (too much to list here!), canoeing on the Wye from Glasbury to Hay, day trips to Hereford/Brecon, cider mills in Herefordshire. Would definitely recommend!

 My wife and I, our two children together with our friends and their two children (4 teenagers) have just returned from a fantastic week end at this site. Situated behind the Radnor Arms Pub it offers stunning views over the Black Mountains, Close enough to Hay on Wye to walk into town should you feel energetic and quiet enough to appeasl to those seeking a rest from the hustle and bustle of the workaday week. The Pub itself offers an extensive reasonably priced menu with superb home cooked food and we booked dinner there to celebrate my 57th. Birthday. The food was absolutely superb and the chef / owner the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble to ensure that his guests had an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately after our celebratory meal my 15 year old daughter fell and injured her ankle. It was 10. 30 at night none of us were able to drive (too much celebrating) but Colin offered to drive my wife and my daughter to Hereford Hospital A&E dept. Rather than us get a taxi. This from a man I had only met the evening before. I cannot praise him or his staff enough.
