A group of 12 of us visited Tylau Lodge last weekend. The house was exactly what we had been looking for; somewhere relaxed and comfortable for a weekend away with friends. Tylau Lodge is just a 15-20 minute walk in to Hay and is a great base for walks in the surrounding countryside. The beds were really comfy, showers were... More

We camped at Outdoors for two nights to walk the Offas Dyke through Gospel Pass. The owners were very quick at returning my call to book a spot and most helpful with keeping us upto date with the medal tally and results from Rio as well as local info. More importantly the campsite is very convenient for Hay and really... More

We were planning to stay in the bell tent but actually stayed in the yurt, very comfortable. The yurt was well laid out and had everything we needed, crockery, gas hob, log fire and fire pit were all put to good use. Logs were available in the storehouse where there were also 2 shared fridges which were clean and tidy.... More

I’ve given this place outstanding reviews before … sorry to be boring but here’s another one. In a word it’s BRILLIANT! I won’t repeat everything I’ve said before (please scroll down for previous reviews with more detail) but I think it’s great on all counts – toilet / shower block, proximity to the festival site, staff and overall atmosphere.

As non campers we opted for a glamping tent, myself my husband and two 17year old girls. Mick was extremely helpful and even waited in the middle of a downpour for those returning after the late show at the festival to make sure all tents etc were OK. Very clean facilities, excellent food and very friendly all round. Would love... More
