The site has a wide range of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets and includes Scandinavian lodges, campsite and camping pods together with the bunkhouse: a modern barn converted into 5 spacious self-catering units.

Ledbury Poetry Festival this year was a blast! Start entering your poems now for next July…
One thing I love about Ledbury Poetry Festival (held on the 3rd to the 12th of July 2020), is that anybody can easily submit their poetry on the official website.
Or if poetry isn’t for you, Hay-on-Wye festival is loved by all! “Writers, politicians, poets, scientists, comedians, philosophers and musicians come together on the greenfield site to talk, eat, think, drink and be merry”- in May, for a whole 11 days a year!
