Builth Wells, Powys
Fforest Fields is a delightful rural campsite surrounded by wooded mountain bowl far from any road. It is a dedicated touring and camping site and has no clubhouse, no statics and not even a swimming pool. Ideal for relaxing and enjoying the peace of the countryside. Grass and hardstanding pitches are spacious and landscaped with trees and banks which give privacy yet still afford glorious views of mid-Wales scenery.
Several excellent walks for the energetic or not so energetic start direct from the campsite meandering up through woods to the thousands of acres of moorland above. Dogs are welcome; they love it here, with plenty of walks off site where they can be exercised. We also have a fenced scamper area where they can do their business if you wish.
The site is lovingly maintained with a spotless toilet shower block and a washing up and launderette room. The showers are free and so is hot water for washing up. There are 48 electric hook-ups (16 amps). Ten hard-standings.
For the past six years we have been the proud winners of a David Bellamy Gold Award for creating this environmental jewel. The site attracts dozens of species of birds from tree-creepers to red kites. It’s not unusual to be joined by a chaffinch for tea. Song thrushes practice their repertoire by day and owl hoots break the silence of night. Dragonflies and damselflies dance about the ponds that are fed by the little stream that runs through the site.
Peaceful secluded level touring campsite - sunny mountain setting with no traffic noise - landscaped with trees, stream and ponds, fishing and amenity lakes.
Wide entrance on A481, 4 miles east of Builth Wells, 1 mile from village of Hundred House (very good pub).
