Hills & Mountains

Fforest Fields sits in the middle of the countryside of mid-Wales, surrounded by hills and mountains the area provides a perfect backdrop for those looking to explore on foot or to head out on beautiful drives that give you wide reaching views across this ancient landscape. There is a good network of roads in the region and a drive in any direction will treat you to spectacular scenery.  If you are looking to get your walking boots on then there are thousands of acres to explore while you stay at Fforest Fields.

The Brecon Beacons

The world-renowned Brecon Beacons National Park is an extraordinary range of looming Welsh mountains which are much loved by adventurers and poets alike.  There are a multitude of activities to do in the region, and some great local attractions to visit if you are not keen to summit the towering Pen Y Ffan and take in the beautiful views.

The Cambrian Mountains

Ancient and truly magical, the Cambrian Mountains offer thousands of acres of barely-touched moorland with peaks and mountain streams, lush valleys and evidence of tin mining.  Often overlooked in favour of the better known Brecon Beacons, this region is our family favourite with a number of small towns and villages hosting fabulous pubs too!

The Black Mountains

Forming part of the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Black Mountains have a charm of their own as they create a natural border between Wales and England.  Nestled in the valleys are some great attractions and special towns such as Hay on Wye.  The area has long been a favourite spot for those looking to break from urban life.

Other hills in the region include, Aberedw Hill which sits behind the campsite and offers great walks right from your pitch, Carneddau (1 mile from the site), Myndd Eppynt, Gilwern & Fanolau.  Take a look at our information boards on site to find out about great walks in the region.
