Alan Rogers Review

This is a tiny site with a big view, just 500 yards from the Welsh border. Indeed, it would be hard to find a more peaceful and unspoiled location – a real hideaway site on National Trust land and run by the tenant farmer. The 12 touring pitches are arranged around the upper edge of a well mown, south facing, grass meadow, ten with electricity hook-ups (10A). Levelling blocks and a torch would be useful. Access is via a narrow lane with passing places for half a mile. From the pitches you have a panoramic view of the Malvern Hills, Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains.

On a really clear day you can even see the Cotswolds (about 60 miles).


A neat little wooden chalet houses the sanitary facilities which can be heated and include the usual WCs, a vanity style washbasin and a simple shower per sex. Washing machine. The reception area in another barn has a good supply of tourist information, a public telephone and a first aid kit. WiFi over part of site (charged).

From Leominster take A44 to Kington. Follow A44 towards Wales, passing two roundabouts on Kington bypass. After 0.75 miles turn left (Kington town centre). After 0.5 miles take second left (Brilley). Keep following signs for Brilley, after 4 miles look out for National Trust sign on left and do sharp, left-hand U-turn (Apostles Lane and Bollingham). After 0.5 miles turn right into site.
