About Racquety Farm

Riverside glamping on the edge of the River Wye

The Owner Says

** Now taking bookings for the Hay Festival of Literature and the Arts (24 May–3 June 2018). **

The views from Racquety Farm are excellent and although you will be in the countryside, the campsite is only a short walk from the charming town centre of Hay. The site boasts private access to the nearby River Wye with exclusive rights for game and coarse fishing and a canoe launch/landing point. There's a canoe hire company sited a short walk from the site, whilst fresh, seasonal fruit and veg is often available to buy as well as basic supplies like tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bacon and eggs. This 60-pitch campsite is a 'Soil Association' certificated organic farm comprised of arable pasture, orchards and woodland and the sites tranquil river bank is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).

Site Facilities

There are 6 compost loos, 5 hot gas-powered showers and good re-cycling facilities. Braziers available for campfires (fires not permitted on the ground) and firewood is available to buy. Geodesic domes are fully carpeted and feature beds and bedding, wood-burning stove and fuel, electric lighting and socket. Direct access to the river for canoeing or fishing. Licences and permission can be obtained for fishing via the campsite or The Wye and Usk Foundation. The river bank is an SSSI, so the owners are careful to manage the numbers of people accessing the river bank at one time. The Wye is a popular river for 'wild swimmers'.
