Reviewer: Jim Sutherland 1 review from this member

Earlier this year we had a need to book a campsite near Hereford and Lucksall was chosen without any reference to reviews. And we did not need any reviews to back up our choice because the standards rate above and beyond the reviews we have since read. The culture is all for the visitor - A family run site with the highest standards from all that work there. They get you to your pitch first - money will do later. The grounds are immaculate - grass cut twice a week so that there are no cuttings to be seen. New planters being produced because some had faded a little. An on site café / bar - so good and convenient that we did not eat anywhere else. Facilities all up to the highest standard. Good sized pitches, most of which are level. Not an area we planned to visit but the site is so good we are planning another visit this year. Well done to all that make it so good.

When we arrived the rain was coming down heavily, so it was great that a member of staff came up to the car window to get our details, then went off into the shop to find our booking and then let us follow them to our pitch - all without us getting wet.

We only stayed here for 2 nights - we live fairly close by and it was just a test trip for our new tent really - but we will be back. It is more pricey than other nearby sites, but you get what you pay for. The staff were always helpful and smiling, the site is immaculate, the facilities spotless and the camping field (we were in Long Meadow) was flat, well drained and as neatly mown as a sports pitch.

There are lots of pitches at Lucksall, but there is also a lot of space so you don't feel too crammed in. Being in the non-EHU field also meant it was a bit more spacious I think.

We hired a canoe for an afternoon splash about (£25 for 2 hours including all the kit) which was lovely. If you have your own canoe there are 2 pontoons on the site which I think you can just launch your boat from, so it would be very easy.

The shop had all of the basics and there was a cafe, but we didn't use it so can't really comment. There was a kids play park which our 7 year old loved and enough space for our two older boys to play football without annoying anyone.

There is a bit of road noise at night, but not enough to spoil our stay. All in all a lovely site and it would be a 10/10 if only it was a little bit cheaper.

The site is immaculate with large hardstanding (gravel) pitches. Showers are spotless with reasonably good temperature and pressure. Very well stocked shop with helpful and friendly staff; however.

If you're looking for a quiet site with good walking from the site- then forget it.

Although on a 'B' road, this is very busy and therefore noisy until quite late.

The website suggests river-side walks- which there is one- for about quarter of a mile- very overgrown with no actual access to the river. There are some quite pleasant walks in the wood on the other side of the road but nothing special.

At the time of our visit two or three fields on the site were in use as overnight stops for teenagers on canoe camping trips so with these high numbers the facilities struggled to cope.

The site advertises free WiFi- but this was only available from outside reception office and for some reason only between 10am and noon.

So in summary: a very smart site but expensive and does not meet the promise suggested on the website.

Stopped for one night in the 'Pavilion' - a large shed with kettle, TV, electric lights (inside & out) and decking. The pavillion was great, there's a double bed, bunks & a single bed (which staff moved for us, so we could get our travel cot in) This was my second stop on Lucksall (previously in my parents caravan). It's a fab site. This time it was a weekend in summer, so nearly fully booked, but at no point did it feel overcrowded. The shower / toilet block is the best I've used, so immaculate. The dish washing block has constant hot water and lots of sinks. We used the cafe for breakfast as we were trying to travel light and the food was good and well priced. Would totally recommend this site and we may be back with our tent when our son is a little older!

This is a largish pleasant site by the river there are a lot of statics but pleasant tourist pitches set in small hedged areas there are two or three toilet blocks which are clean I did not use the showers but they seemed ok. Close to our pitch was a wash up area three sinks under cover but not inside a laundry and recycle waste disposal area. There is a well stocked shop and a bar bistro with tables at the side of the river with lovely flower beds. They open for breakfast and do lunches and evening meals. The food was lovely would suggest booking on Sunday lunch specials and evening meals. There is canoe hire on the river and lots of fishing. Outside entrance is a bus stop but no buses on a Sunday. There are narrow roads to the site but plenty of passing places. Staff were very helpful and pleasant.

This is a fabulous site and so well maintained, the grass is cut to an inch of it`s life. The flower beds are beautiful with some species we have rarely seen. The staff are great and are ready to meet you as you arrive and direct you to your pitch. Don`t worry about paying your balance until you are settled in, they tell you. The toilet block at the back of the site is new and fantastic. Our only gripe is that the only bins are in the re cycling centre in the middle of the park. They could put more of them about but don`t and when we asked, no one seemed to know why.

We visited this wonderful site from 5th-7th June 2015 as a stopover weekend on the way home to the North West from Devon. We arrived & pulled over into a little layby (as directed by the clear signage) we were greeted, the keys were brought to us & we were shown straight to the pavilion without even having to leave the car! A map of the park was provided & everything was pointed out to us. An absolutely 1st class welcome!

We rented the 5 berth pavilion in the long meadow. It was well equipped with kettle, heater, TV, picnic bench & parasol. It had one double, one single & bunk beds. I'd highly recommend it. It was well insulated so we didn't need to use the heater but it was good to know it was there, just in case the good old English weather wasn't favourable.

My parents rented the beach hut for 2 people & equally enjoyed it.

We are seasoned campers and found the site to be well maintained with immaculate, well marked pitches. The toilet/shower blocks were spotless, nice & warm, hot showers & well stocked. There was a hairdryer in the ladies (coin operated - 20p) and Dyson hand dryers.

The shop was well stocked with everything you may have forgotten & reasonably priced.

We ate in the café on our arrival day, the meals were excellent quality & fair prices. The & children's lasagne was a huge hit, delicious! They serve food until about 9pm and offer a takeaway option too. They have a licenced bar & serve drinks until 11pm, a great range of local ciders & very reasonable prices. We also enjoyed breakfast here this morning before our departure, sitting outside overlooking the river, basking in the sunshine - bliss! I had the meat free breakfast, delicious & filling at £4. 50, the others had yummy bacon sandwiches (£2. 90) and toast served with butter & jam (£1. 90) all washed down with a lovely pot of tea.

We booked by telephone, and found them to be very helpful. Upon arrival we were met by staff who directed us to our pitch.

We later asked to be moved near to the river and this was all ok-no questions asked or fuss made.

The site itself is immaculate, with plenty of space for each of us.

Toilets etc were also immaculate(a rarity when it comes to camping).

The only 'bad' thing we encountered was when we visited the shop for a bag of sugar and were stared at by several staff members who were obviously bored. -They talked us into buying a map of the local area which we didn't really want.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would go again for a short break.

We have already recommended it to other people as a good weekender!

Reviewer: The Thin Man 6 reviews from this member

You can't really fault this site. But somehow I didn't like it. It was too pristine, groomed to within an inch of it's life! They don't allow weeds anywhere. It is immaculate, clean, and in a great location, but the thing I remember are the ubiquitous signs telling you to keep your dog on a short lead. I don't think it helped that we were there with kids when the rest of the country didn't have school holidays - so it felt like we were in danger of disturbing the Daily Mail readers. When I stuck a swingball into the ground I thought 'I bet I'm not allowed to do this'. I have to point out that everybody was perfectly pleasant, and nobody told me not to do anything, so this is probably more to do with me than the site. But just not my cup of tea.

This is a also a very large site. Despite advertising itself as great for dogs, there is nowhere to let your dog off the lead without going to the woods over the road. This doesn't sound too bad, but if you are at the far end of the site, then this is a good half mile walk just to get to the wood's entrance. If the site was full then there would also not be much space for kids to play.

Reviewer: DarbyAllen18 1 review from this member

Booked by phone, receptionist extremely helpful, no pressure totally helpful. We had specific requirements and we were advised they could accommodate all of them.

Instructions to site were accurate and the camp is located with easy access and signposted.

Immediately you arrive you are met with friendly faces and a sincere professionally, well organised staff. The gardens are immaculate and are constantly tended. The shop on site is small but caters for immediate needs. Although a very good local shop and butchers and post office can be found in the next village Fownhope.

There are 3 toilet blocks on site, disabled one identified in block 2, however block 3 (the newest) houses excellent facilities, especially the 'family. Room), however all can only be accessed by climbing up a few steps. In this block are all amenities, water, waste, chemical toilet disposal, washing up. Although strangely no refuse bins!

Without exception this well run, friendly site, alongside the River Wye is ideally suited for a relaxing break. The cafe opened half way through our week and provided well presented, cooked snacks and meals and drinks, both alcoholic and non alcoholic.

We will visit again, but not take up the pitch we had this time as fitting in the porch awning was a tight fit, but we could of asked for a different pitch which would have been accommodated. Wifi almost non existent, but Vodafone coverage was good.

Thoroughly enjoyable, thank you.
