Why come to mid Wales in October?


Because it is beautiful! It’s quiet and unspoiled, the colours are wonderful, the biggest traffic jam will be a slow moving flock of sheep being brought down from the mountains: the water in the streams glistens, the air is fresh and clean and that’s just one or two reasons!

It’s the perfect time to explore this part of Wales, deep valleys with hillsides covered in ancient oaks, high hill tops covered in reddening bracken. The clean air means that you can see for miles.  Drive the hill road to Aberystwyth, walk the Wye Valley, spend a day mooching round book shops in Hay on Wye.  If the weather is set fair walk up Pen y Fan, it’s far less exhausting than on a hot summer day, drive round the Elan Valley, walk some of the tracks round the dams.

Why stay at Fforest Fields in autumn, well, that’s a simple one! The best facilities, toasty warm and spotlessly clean, wide hard standings, all with electric hook-up, dry all weather pitches, all with electric hook-up and generous grass pitches with or without electric. Easy access off a minor main road, a warm welcome and the WHOLE of Wales at your door step.

Over the years we have become walking encyclopedias of where and which way to go, we can direct you off the beaten track or along empty main roads, we can suggest walks, climbs places for cream teas and pubs with roaring fires and delicious Sunday lunches.
