There is a hut just inside the gate which you assume is the reception but this does not appear to be manned at any time. A note on the table gives three phone numbers to ring, two of which are mobile numbers, but we were unable to reach anyone. If you are unsuccessful with the phone then you have to go to the house to check in. Once you are checked in the owners are very much in the background and not proactive even to the point of not saying hello when you bump into one in the toilet block.

Motorhome pitches are basically a car park, not very inviting particularly if like us you are in the corner meaning you have a three foot wall on two sides of your pitch and trees blocking the view which is glorious if you are in a tent or caravan but nonexistent in our case. Also not a good pitch when busy and you have a van at the side and in front of you.

Toilets and showers were very good but needs more washing up sinks. Two are not sufficient when site full. Only one household type washing machine and tumble dryer, both very small but they were free to use.

Overall a nice pleasant site but it just felt lacking in a warm welcome.

Just come back from this fantastic site. Well located for lots of the Forest of Dean attractions, with access from the campsite directly in to forest for walking or cycling. Local shops are well stocked and within walking distance, and larger shops such as Co-op easily accessible within 10 - 15mins drive. The site itself is spotless! No matter what time of day or night, the shower and kitchen blocks were faultless, and the grounds are incredibly well kept. Previous reviews mention the site being on a slope so hard to pitch tents, but the owners have paid attention to this by levelling the pitches. We have a large 8 man tunnnel tent and had no problems pitching, and the spaces were very generous with amazing views over the forest. Lots of thought has gone in to balancing fun for children with relaxation for adults - there is outdoor play space with a football goal and basketball at the far end of the site, and a brilliant play barn with pool, bouncy castle, ride on tractors etc. Definitely worth a visit - we're already looking at options to return later in the year!

Just returned from a night at the site. Went on nice mid September weekend. Site was lovely. Extremely well kept with beautiful views over forest. Toilets and facilities were immaculate. Was quiet when we went, so can't comment on what it would be like during busy times. Great for walkers and people wanting to chill out. Play barn for children was a nice idea with bouncy castle which my 4 year old loved, I had a quick bounce too!

Can't think about any negatives really. A small shop would have been nice maybe !

As a new site, I'm sure it will continue to develop and will become a favourite with many.

We visited here with our children for 4 days. The owner is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area, and gave recommendations for places to go and to eat. The toilet and facilities are amazingly spotless and well maintained. They seem to have thought of everything - even a step for little ones to reach the sink! Our children loved the location - on the edge of the forest so they could explore for animals! There is a nice indoor play area for children but my children were a little old and needed to be careful of younger ones which the area was more suited for. There is a nice open area with a goal and basket ball hoop at the back of the site. There is a lovely pub called the Rising Sun which is about a 5 minute drive away. The site has a strict early arrival policy so plan your arrival time carefully!

I stayed at Deanwood with my daughter and 5year old grandson, the first time he had been away in the van! The site was spotlessly clean in all areas. The views were fantastic, the play barn was a huge hit and the management were welcoming and friendly. As requested, the site was quiet between 10. 30pm and 7. 30am and I would definitely recommend this site to anyone wanting a relaxing, peaceful time-yet there was something for the youngsters to do too. The Forest of Dean has so many attractions for visitors, as well as walking and cycling.

We stayed here over Easter weekend as it was near by and wanted to explore different parts of the forest we already visit regularly. We were pleasantly surprised on arrival views were as good as the pictures. Had a bit of trouble pitching up as pitch wasn't very level but we managed kids slept well but us not so as were sliding off camp bed. Hot showers were great and washing up area and laundry areas very good. The playbarn is a fabulous idea our kids thought it was great especially on the Sunday when the rain arrived just as we were packing up. Will be visiting again have recommended to a few Friends.
