Riverside camping and glamping with canoes for hire, a pub within walking distance and the famous book town of Hay-on-Wye just around the corner

There’s something almost continental about Digeddi Wildlife Camping. When the sun’s out and your down on the riverside beach with sausages on the BBQ you could be forgiven for thinking you’re in the middle of France. Canoes are pulled up on the smooth, grey pebbles and the water flows quietly by. It’s not long before you’re in for a swim.

There are, however, some tell tale signs of England. In the large, gently sloping meadow behind, shire horses chomp their way through the grass, while, around, the oak trees and woodland that cover the Wye Valley are a truly native scene. The temperature is normally a little lower than the south of France, too, but a good campfire can easily sort that problem out. This is proper camping after all.

The camping itself is very much of the traditional kind. There’s room for 100 pitches but, as a result, it’s rarely full and there’s plenty of space. There’s nothing regimented either; just pick a spot and pitch your tent. You can pop it down near the riverside – particularly good if you want a campfire by the water ­– or head up to the top of the slope with far reaching views.

Glamping is also an option here for those seeking a little more comfort. A bow top gypsy wagon, traditionally painted and parked at the top of the meadow, sleeps two, and there’s a larger, French-style Roulotte that can sleep three. Both have everything needed, so you can simply arrive with a little food and a toothbrush!

The real highlight of the campsite, however, is the location. Like Digeddi, many sites in the area boast footpaths on their doorstep, but few also have such easy access to the River Wye. You can hire canoes and drift gently downstream (picked up later by the campsite owners) or follow it upstream, on foot, to the famous book town of Hay-on-Wye. Indeed, you could easily spend you entire holiday here and never use your car. The town has enough to keep you busy for several days, while walking and canoeing can fill the rest. Even the nearest pub is just a short stroll across the next-door field.
