2017
Winner's Name: 
Fforest Fields Caravan & Camping Park

Campsite of the Year - Wales Winner

A long established hillside farm is the location for this superb holiday destination, located a few miles from Builth Wells and the Royal Welsh Showground. The meandering tree-lined drive to Fforest Fields Caravan and Camping Park creates a happy feeling of anticipation, and on clearing the outer forest, the gentle slope stops at the level touring areas. The excellent pitch density results in optimum privacy, and the surrounding densely planted hills are home to a wide range of indigenous wildlife. This is a walkers’ paradise as there are lakes, woodland and moorland all within the park’s boundaries. The site has a conveniently located, spacious eco-friendly amenities block, fuelled by a bio-mass boiler and solar panels, which provides excellent facilities for adults and families.  In addition to the excellent reception, there’s a stylish café that serves local and home-reared produce and, for a glamping holiday, there’s two bell tents, ‘Betty’ and ‘Harry’, each with a kitchen. In recent years, new members of the Barstow family have brought individual and specialised talents to the team equation; the park is very popular with outdoor adventure groups and the Barstow family are to be commended for their partnership with local youth groups who certainly enjoy time spent at the park.
