The Black Mountains area is a great holiday destination


If you're planning to come to Campfire Convention 001.UK over the weekend of August 12-14, you might want to consider extending your visit to take in some of the many local attractions, ranging from breathtaking hill walking on the Cat's Back or Offa's Dyke to browsing the antique and book shops in nearby Hay on Wye.

If shopping or walking isn't your thing, you can easily hire canoes or bicycles, or get in the car and head deep into the Vale of Ewyas and the ancient ruins of Llanthony Priory, a short distance away from Maes y Beran farm, where The Big Chill created history in 1995 by staging its first outdoor event there for 600 people.

There's a wealth of local produce in the area, as well as the Hereford cider trail, along with some historic churches, nature trails and even a beach on the banks of the Wye just out of the centre of Hay, should the weather be suitable for bathing in the sun or the water.
