A small, peaceful, family-run caravan and motorhome site nestled between Herefordshire’s Golden Valley and the Black Mountains. Part of an artisan cider farm, and on top of a hill surrounded by farmland, we have the most amazing sunrises and sunsets, the sounds of nature and the most amazing star-studded skies.

Welcome to The Cider Site

Caravan and Motorhome Club Certified Location badgeThe Cider Site opened in March 2023. It is certificated by the Caravan and Motorhome Club and is for adult members only. There are 3 hard standing pitches and 1 grass pitch. There are no electric hook-ups. There is a plumbed-in toilet and shower.

We are at the top of a hill, so all four pitches have magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding countrside. The sunrise is extra special here.

Look out of the window of your caravan or motorhome and gaze from the Cider Site across the rolling Herefordshire landscape towards Garway Hill and the Monnow Valley. The former is home to wild Welsh ponies. If you hike up to there, look across for the line of poplar trees and these will signpost you back to the farm.

Award-winning cider made and served on-site!

Our cider shop and bar is open Wednesday to Sunday from 12 to 5, and serves our award-winning Ty Gwyn ciders and perry. We are licenced, so you can drink on the premises. There’s good mobile reception on the site, but WiFi is available in the shop if you need it.

Things to do

The Cider Site is perfectly located for all kinds of things to pass your time. Whether you like your days action-packed or history-packed, whether you want to tour the local sites or kick-back and relax on-site, you’ll be glad you pitched-up here.

Walk from the door and explore a plethora of footpaths (including one to the local ice cream farm). Or head a little further afield and make your way to the summit of one of the peaks you can see from the site, such as Skirrid or Sugar Loaf.

Shop till you drop in the market towns of Hereford and Abergavenny, or just drop by the nearby village shops if you want to top up supplies and avoid the bustle.

Food and drink

Whether you want eat out or pick up something to bring back to your van, we are also spoiled for choice when it comes to food and drink.

For example there are not one but three traditional dog-friendly country pubs within a few miles (all walkable if you’re happy stretching your legs a bit). A great chippy and teriffic Thai takeaway are also close by.

And if you would like to indulge in the treat that is breakfast delivered to your door, why not order our homemade breakfast baskets!

  • The site is level and easy to access but parking your caravan or motorhome is easier on some pitches than others. Mention the size of your vehicle/s when you book and will allocate the most appropriate pitch.

  • We do love our furry friends here at Ty Gwyn, but we also know not all dogs get along, not all our guests have dogs, and we are close to a road! Therefore, we ask that all dogs remain on their lead while on site.

We arrived in pouring rain and it was dark. Laura came out to meet us – what a wonderful reception, The site is a little bit quirky and parking the van needs a little experience. The site is very compact with water, waste, recycling, and waste water/ chemical emptying all very convenient. The views are magnificent. The site is very quiet with the occasional train in the distance. The locality has a fish and chip shop that was so busy had to go back after half an hour. The Temple Bar Inn in the village did a super meal and allowed the dog with a really friendly atmosphere. We wish Laura and Alex every success with their site.
