Our first visit to Fforest fields and we were very impressed. Just about everything you could ask for has been addressed, nice cafe, phone charging points and a bank of fridges really made this a comfortable stay. Even with the campsite busy it did feel peaceful at night and we didn't feel crowded at any time. Add into the mix a pub you can walk too and some lovely scenery it's a real winner.
a very relaxing, friendly campsite with great facilities set in the beautiful Welsh countryside. Friendly, approachable staff on hand at all times. Will
Definitely be bacK. A real gem which fully deserves its AA 2017 campsite of the year award.

Beautiful location and easy to access yet no traffic noise at all. Fforest Fields is a brilliant site for a quiet stay yet with plenty on offer to occupy all ages and excellent, prisctine facilities. Free showers, (always hot water and lovely spacious cubicles for families, no sprayed clothing haha) ...free washing up, phone charge, fridges and freezers, kiaking, drying room. Free maps of the area. Little site shop open 24hrs with an honesty box, fresh stuff all local produce. Licensed cafe doing fresh croissants in the mornings, amazing cakes, local beers and ciders and cocktails, pizza night on Sunday, all made to order from scratch. A beautifully kept site with so many thoughtful touches. Obviously a lot of pride and pleasure invested by the always friendly and helpful staff. Suffice to say that after our first camping visit we have immediately booked our summer holiday here!

It's the attention to detail as well as the surroundings and facilities that make this site so special. Plenty of pegs and somewhere to sit whilst you put on your socks in the shower room, the cloths and mops to help you leave things as you found them in the wash area, the shop always open with an honesty box, the friendly staff who make you feel they have all the time in the world to chat, the beautifully crafted structures, the court yard strewn with clematis. I could go on and on!
Spent 2 nights here as an introduction to Motorhome life. What an excellent site. Thumbs and paws up from me and the dog. So many positives: beautifully situated, immaculately kept, first class facilities, loads of dog friendly walks, friendly and helpful staff. So many species of birds, cuckoo in full swing and red kites hovering overhead. Loved everything about this place and will definitely be back.
Had a fantastic weekend at Forest Fields. Friendly and helpful staff, a lovely campsite nod awesome shower block - so warm, my glasses steamed up! The stonishing variety of birds to be spotted and heard was truly amazing - cuckoos, woodpeckers drumming, martins skimming the lakes and a mysterious raven with laryngitis were just a small sample of the delights. Thank you to all the staff. We will be back!
Four fantastic breaks at the mostly welcoming, well run and friendly site experienced in 30 years plus of caravanning. Absolutely superb. Cannot wait to get back to the site again very soon. Thank you George, Katie and family!
used this as a stop over whilst travelling from north wales, what an amazing site set in a stunning location, if you love the great outdoors coupled with great facilities then this is the site for you, extra friendly staff what more could you want, cannot recommend highly enough,

We have being visiting FForest Fields over the past 13 years, the site has evolved to what is one one of the best camping and caravaning site there is. George and Katie with the jelp of thier family have created a fabulous place to stay. Always friendly, tyhe site itself is of the highest quality, tye shower block is second to none, The night sky is something you will remember, Its a great place to wake.
Roger & Paua Clarke
Probably the best site we have visited in many years camping. Situated in a beautiful part of mid Wales with wonderful views and many great walks in the vicinity. Ultra friendly staff who are always very helpful. Excellent facilities that were more than adequate to cater for a full site. Excellent site for dog walks with a variety of walks readily accessible directly off the site, sheer dog heaven. The two lakes, one boating, one fishing make ideal spots to watch for wildlife and dark skies at night a sheer delight. Loads of children present all seeming to enjoy themselves. Wish we could have stayed longer, most relaxing couple with very friendly campers made for a great holiday. Will definitely return along with the grandchildren at some time in the future.
we had are first stay at forest fields this year, easy to say this is the best site i have ever stayed on!!! all the amenities are out of this world, well thought of and put together. 100% we will be going back to stay . cafe was stunning and friendly, the little shop was perfect for the little thinks you forget . very happy.
Nicholas & Philippa Hicks
Simply the best site around. Friendly, clean e celled facilities an honesty box (where can you see that nowadays?). Nothing g is ever too much for for all who work there. The countryside around is just lovely and the walks awesome. Facilities for children are great, ponds to look for wildlife and a lake for swimming and canoeing. We love it that much we arranged to leave our caravan with them as we very seldom if at all go anywhere else.
I dont really know what more to say about the site, we started camping there about 3 years ago, mainly because it was not that far from home. We loved it from the first visit, and when we decided to upgrade to a tourer, the only place we found we really wanted to try out the new kit was fforest fields. I cannot think how many times we have been now, and apart from the constant upgrading of the site it is always a pleasure when we pull onto the drive. And Relax! There is no pressure from george and kate the owners, they just wish you a great stay. The only downside is that we are now spoilt, and cannot find another site with such a relaxing atmosphere. Many of the caravanners and campers return again and again. Keep up the great work both of you (and will and nat of course) it is really appreciated.

Simply The Best! Just returned from 5 nights at Fforest. By any criteria this must be a 5 star site. Perfect! Of course the weather helped but what really made it for us was the spotlessly clean and modern toilet and showering facilities. The site is well managed and everything is done with a smile. Its the best site we have visited anywhere and we certainly plan to return.
If you could design the perfect campsite - this would be it. Beautiful location, excellent facilities that look like they were built yesterday, cheerful and easygoing staff. Made our three night stay in Betty bell tent perfect. Thank you.
What a find ! Just returned from a 3-night break in our new tent (also terrific). We absolutely loved Fforest Fields and cannot find anything negative to say about it. Great location, first-class facilities, friendly atmosphere, good pitch size, useful shop, great café, pristine loos/showers/washing up, free freezers/fridges, mobile phone charging and wifi, hooty owls to send us to sleep and amazing views to wake up to - in fact everything you could want for a happy stay. We'll definitely be back - soon I hope. Thank you.
Fab weekend in one of the bell tents - nice gentle intro to camping !!! - facilities are top notch and the staff on site couldnt be more helpful. the thai takeaway van on the Friday was v good value and tasty. Almost got us thinking about investing in our own equipment - although the facilities that come with the bell tent may be a sacrifice too far !!!. We will be back.
Just got back from an amazing short break away with my husband and two boys 11 & 8 years, from camping at Fforest Fields. Can not fault it at all perfect place fantastic facilities, very helpful and kind staff. We will be going back.
Just back from a wet bank holiday weekend but as always received a warm welcome. We have been to Fforest fields several times and it gets better every time. The addition of the café is great and only adds to the fantastic facilities already on site. The family go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay and all you hear on site is “we will be back again”. Great to see the honesty box is still being used and long may it continue. The addition of the Bush craft courses over the bank holiday weekend were great and my new carved tent peg now takes pride of place in my van. I just need another 25! This is camping as it should be.
Just spent a fantastic weekend here it is everything we want on a site the hill walks are fab all the staff are friendly and helpful , our two dogs loved it weather running free on the hillside and woods or swimming
in the lakes , we were all sad to leave , but we are going back and telling others what a fab place this is

We have been visiting FF for more than 9 years its an amazing place to stay we are treated like valued friends at every visit we have recommended many of our friends who have all had a fabulous time winter or summer be sure of a warm welcome
What a wonderful site, this was our second visit within the last couple of months although only a short distance from home we do not need to travel further for a lovely relaxing break ,lovely walks, fantastic facilities all spotlessly clean. So much thought has gone into the planning of this site to make it such a wonderful place to stay we will certainly be visiting regularly. Thank you for making us so welcome.
Chris and Shelagh
We have been staying at Fcforest fields for 20 years fisrtly in a trailer tent, then caravan now a motorhome. The site has likewise progressed and has lways been a wonderful place to stay, Geoge and his family always give a warm and relaxed welcome to all. The site has ll any country lover could need, lakes, hills, paths and peace. We intend to return to Fforest Fields for another twenty years. I can think of nothing negative to say about ff please try it and see!
Colin & Liz Campbell
we had a fantastic week! Facilities are excellent and everything the site description states ! The owners and staff are very welcoming and helpful! We will be back and thanks!
We had a fantastic family holiday in the Betty Bell-Tent, my son and daughter had great fun riding on their bikes and made lots of friends. We will definitely be back again next year. Thanks to all the staff for making us so welcome and the facilities are 5*.

Purely incidental we 'landed' on Fforest Fields after a bicycle accident during our cycling holiday through Wales.
The campsite staff was very friendly and helpfull (they even collected our bikes and gear 6 miles away!) and quickly helped us to get settled and feel at home.
We couldn't have found us a better place to recover. Perfect and clean facilities, good camping grounds and, although the campsite is large, due to it's landscaping it feels like you're on a cosy 'smallish' campsite.
The way the facilities and the exploitation of this site is designed this camping is an example to others how to run a sustainable campsite! Well done!
We'd love to come back here and also better explore the beautiful area and thank the staff for retrieving and forwarding some clothing we forgot in the drying room (in all the after-accident-stress).
We would definitely recommend this site if we weren't in fear this campsite might get too popular! ;-)
August 2015. Went with my 2 boys and little girl, we had a fabulous time. Forest fields is a great family run camp site with amazing facilities. The Lake and canoes were the highlight of the trip. It was my 3rd time there, took friends with us and their children, who all loved it and will also defiantly be going again. Lovely walk to the pub. Cant wait to bring the children back again.
The Clare Family
We have just arrived home after a 5 night stay. The children are already asking when we can return.
We have enjoyed canoeing and jumping in the lake, fishing, horse riding at Bryngwyn who were amazing and a couple of lovely meals at the Hundred House Inn where the family enjoyed a warm welcome.
The staff at Fforest fields are also very welcoming and are always around to help or have a friendly chat. The site is spotless and has everything you need from a fridge and freezer to mobile chargers and a drying room for all your wet clothes.
can't wait to return. Thank you.
What a fantastic camp site, friendly welcoming staff who were always willing to help, lovely well thought out facilities. Swimming and boating on the lake was fantastic although we did appreciate having our wet suits on! The village pub is just a short walk away, with a good selection of traditional pub food. Very happy to recommend this site to others.
stayed for 6 nights and as the reviews state what a brilliant site. our very expensive air tent sprung a big leak and the site owners did so much to help even offering us a spare tent. we was warmly welcomed and the toilet blocks were as said modern and very clean. I'm disabled and had no problems at all. only down side the site gets very muddy on very wet days. the views/walks around the site were amazing, night time the stars blew us away. thank you for a great holiday and for all your help. the hedge family.

What a lovely site this is, 6 day stay over the Easter Bank Holiday. Beautiful weather, lots of walking and things to do. Will definitely be returning to enjoy more. :) Thank you
We stayed in fforest fields for 3 nights and it was wonderful! The facilities here is clean and excellent. They even got a potty for little ones in the family bathrooms. The children were so delighted, they only want to go camping if it is fforest fields! Thank you George and Kath.

Just got back from a short 2 night visit. As usual, site is unrivalled. Beautiful site and friendly people. This time we took our 2 pups. They loved walking around the site and the walks going into the hills. (Poop bags used of course). Will be coming back again soon. Thanks all for the hard work in keeping the site so beautiful and restfull.
We have been to Fforest Fields 4 times this year.
The site is fantastic. So relaxing and a good base for exploring!
Kath, George and Wil, do an amazing job. Nothing is too much trouble, and so friendly.
Facilities are outstanding!!! Problem is, if we go anywhere else, we expect the same high standards!
Well done to you all, and we will definately be back!!!
Nicki, Richard & Mutley Montford
Just home from another wonderful break. This time we stayed nine days and still didn't want to leave!
The site was fantastic before, but the new facilities are amazing!!!
Really can't recommend you guys enough. Wonderful site, fantastic hosts, great facilities (the drying room was a so useful when we had the rain midweek), the homereared bacon and sausages are out if this world. We even went to meet the pigs, they seemed so pleased to see us, if only they knew :-)
Mutley the hound certainly enjoyed swimming in Tue lake, even though it is October! Lol
Already talking about our next visit, it may well be two stays next year.
Thank you so much for a wonderful week

Just returned from our fourth stay at Fforest Fields, what can I say except that with such a wonderful site ,stunning facilities , superb views and the owners George, Katie and Wil are so committed to keeping their site 5 star. We will be back again next year.
Absolutely deserves this, and other, excellent reviews. An astonishing attention to detail, linked with an understanding of campers needs, makes this a truly exceptional site.
Peaceful location, child friendly atmosphere, lovely owners. Away from civilisation affords great star gazing on clear nights. Toilet/shower blocks excellent. Site reception sells the basics, homemade sausages from their own pigs are lovely & the local organic ice cream the sell is out of this world. Wife, 5 yr old, 10 yr old, 15 yr old, grandparents & myself in two tents on hardstanding with ehu = very relaxing holiday, thank you.
Baz & Cait
We would agree with every testimonial we have read.What a superb site. Simply the best. Immaculate and nothing too much bother. Well done to all concerned in running this site. We will be back...
Just back from a 2 night stay from which adults and children didnt want to leave.
Relaxing and friendly atmosphere.beautiful.scenery and amazing views. And of course the lake which my boys loved.
Amazing hosts who clearly are hardworking and dedicated to their campsite of which they should be very proud. Absolutely.spotless.
We will definately return.i am only sad that we had to leave. Thanks
Claire and zakk
As a single mum camping with my 9 year old son I must say this is the best campsite we have been to! I was a bit hesitant as it isn't coastal and wondered what we might do when there wasn't a beach to go to! Worries over! We've visited twice now! My son is already planning for our next trip! Fantastic facilities and fantastic site! Amazing value for money! I could go on! If you haven't visited yet do yourself a favour and check this heavenly site out! Xxxx

Dear Katie and George, thank you for letting me stay at your lovely campsite with Mummy, Daddy and Molly the dog. I loved my 3 day camping holiday- sleeping in a tent, collecting frogs, leeches, pond snails and one cricket! (Don't worry - I put them all back :-) I really want to come back and see you again
ps I know why it's called Fforest Fields. It's a bit foresty...and a bit fieldy...!
Home from a 4 nights stay and can't praise it enough, wonderful hosts, beautiful scenery, lots to do and immaculate facilities. After having experienced many campsites Fforest Fields is now my favourite, 10stars!!! highly recommend :D

Just returned from 12 days at this 5 star site.Congratulations to George and the staff for a wonderful site, Something for all ages to do. Walks and lakes superb. Highly recommend this wonderful campsite.
I believe it should be obligatory for all other campsite's management to visit Fforest Fields to see how a campsite should be run.
The service is superb; the site very clean and well maintained; the staff very friendly, with nothing being too much trouble.
The new shower block and shop are better than any other "on site facilities" of the campsites we have been to.
You always feel welcome, and there is no feeling of being ripped off as other campsites have a little charge for this or a little charge for that-none of that here.
We thoroughly enjoyed our two week visit, and recommend anyone to visit, who wants a nice peaceful holiday, with lots of wonderful scenery and walks close by.
Most of the campers seem to have been returning visitors - and that is a tribute to the staff and management of Fforest Field.
Thanks for a brilliant holiday, and we will be seeing you again.
