Directly adjacent to the campsite there is Aubrey's canoe hire company (01497 820604) – you can slip straight out onto the water and paddle into town or further afield. They can pick you up again further downstream or start in Glasbury-on-Wye for a longer spell on the water. Sailing (01874 658596) is also available at nearby Llangorse Lake and there's horse riding in Bryngwyn (01497 851669), while heading out on foot along Offa's Dyke Path or The Wye Valley Walk is also hugely popular. For most, however, it's the 5–10-minute walk to Hay town centre that's the real attraction. Aside from the collection of good pubs and restaurants, the place is awash with quirky, independent shops. It is particularly renowned for its antique and vintage shops and book shops.

A breakfast bar onsite is available on busy weekends and for whole group bookings (contact the site to discuss). Local produce is available from the Hayfield Community Garden during summer months or in Hay Town at the Deli and Greengrocer (01497 820708). There's also an excellent local butchers (01497 820636). Racquety Farm has raspberries for sale (end of June–September) with a 'pick-your-own' that is particular popular with families. Homemade apple juice is also for sale while stocks last!
