Riverside camping and glamping with canoes for hire
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 Britain. 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 20 pitches but, as a result, it’s rarely full and there’s plenty of space. Suzie will help you find the perfect pitch on the site. 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 two. 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 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 Digeddi welcomes a new venture for 2022 adding more diversity for our avid campers. Not got your own tent? Digeddi has got you covered. They now provide 2 Bell Tents, Otters Way and The Kingfisher, in a prime tranquil and idyllic spot on the grounds of Digeddi, River view and panoramic picture perfect spots. Escape from the noise of the city, to our prime location. Sit back and relax by an open ground fire, stoke up the BBQ and take in all the nature that awaits you and as night falls gaze into the sky and take in the amazing view of the moon and the stars. The new bell tents are a simple yet  perfect place for a weekend or mid-week getaway.

Grass Camping pitch
Excellent riverside campsite
Fantastic location and lovely camp site. Loads of room so never felt crowded. We had a great pitch down by the river - the boys loved it. Saw an otter and a kingfisher. The horsebox showers are a nice touch and ‘Awesome Dan’ - the kayaking instructor - was brilliant. Would definitely use again.

Grass Camping pitch
Perfect pitch!
The pitch was perfect. Right by a little incline down to the river, no neighbours but even if there were, the distance between is enough. Each pitch has a firepit and logs can be delivered to you. The showers and toilets are very clean and maintained and the location is brilliant. Suezi and her family are welcoming and very helpful and we definitely plan to stay again.

Grass Camping pitch
Wide open spaces, beautiful views
Beautiful big site with loads of space; we were lucky enough to be right by the river. Facilities are basic - but very clean. I’d have liked another Porto-loo or two nearer the far end of the campsite, but this was a minor niggle. Campsite owners friendly and helpful. A lovely base to explore the Brecon Beacons and Hay area. Thank you to Sue-zi and all her family!

Grass Camping pitch
Basic-ly not very welcoming
Location was lovely. It was sold as basic and minimalistic which we love but it was badly delivered and unwelcoming. For example, there was one sink near the camping area which is OK but it was installed on an angle which meant it didn’t drain properly and accumulated everyone’s dirty washing up water. There was no shelter over it either - thank goodness we had good weather! There was an unwelcoming Keep Out sign which seemed to pointlessly prevent campers using the shorter route to the showers and built toilets. The portaloos were not lit and fairly unpleasant. This meant the ‘take your rubbish home’ felt less than of an eco statement than a money-saving exercise.

Grass Camping pitch
Best place by far.
This is an amazingly beautiful location with what I would say was our own massive private space, so close to the river and so peaceful. If you like Camping and Caravan Club sites don't come, this really is a place for people who love real camping and enjoying their own company and wildlife. Perfect. Will come again and bring friends.

From the host
Riverside camping and Glamping, with spectacular views and ambiance. Digeddi Wildlife camping is set across 20acres with Glamping units as well as Camping pitches. Set alongside the river wye and Digeddi brook there is plenty of wildlife to be seen by all. We look forward to welcoming you to stay.
Nearby attractions
Footpaths and bridleways aren't hard to come by around here and, if you're not paddling on the river (see on site), hitting the trails is a great option. The famous Offa's Dyke (01547 528753) route passes nearby (it goes via Hay-on-Wye) and the Hay Bluff and Black Mountains make for excellent walking. In town, Hay Castle is well worth a visit and hours can be spent nosing around the independent shops and cafés – particularly book and antiques shops. It's worth beginning at the central tourist office (01497 820144). It's a 15-minute drive to Brecon and the Brecon Beacons National Park – climb Pen y Fan – and a 30-minute drive to Llanthony Priory (01873 890487), a ruined Augustinian Priory in the beautiful Vale of Ewyas. Entry is free and it, too, is surrounded by many great walking routes, including Offa's Dyke.
Food and drink
It's 2 miles to Hay-on-Wye where there are plenty of options. There are delis and small shops within the town, as well as a Co-Op supermarket just outside. There are 3 pubs – The Blue Boar (01497 820884), Edwardian Kilverts Inn (01497 821042) right in the middle of town and The Three Tuns (01497 821855), a fabulous 16th-century pub with low beams, real ales on tap and a convivial atmosphere.
