Just back from a peaceful stay at Poston Mill. What a nice site in a beautiful setting. Pitches were well spaced and a good size. We were lucky with the weather during our stay mostly dry but when the wind picked up there was little shelter. The facilities block was warm and clean, the showers lovely and hot with good sized individual cubicles. Nice indoor dishwashing room as well. The dog was not left out either - nice dog walk and although not used, the dog wash was lovely. We did use the on site shop - very limited stock but the bacon was lovely! When the shop was shut, staff were able to access items for us.
We took walking books with us and were able to do beautiful walks each day.
We enjoyed a gorgeous Sunday roast at the on site Mill restaurant and would recommend it as a place to enjoy a drink in the sunshine or a good meal. The added bonus was being able to take the dog with us (and not have to decide who would be the driver!) While were here, we visited the local pub, The Boughton Arms, They do delicious fresh beer battered fish and chips to take away on Tuesday nights - highly recommended! Totally dog and muddy boot friendly, lovely warm welcome for us, good local ale and cider, and a bowl of water for the dog. Very friendly chatty owners with good local knowledge. We also visited The Bridge Inn at Michaelchurch for an evening meal. Dogs permitted in the bar and garden. Excellent food with a really nice variety (recommend the slow roast belly of pork and the lamb!) Again, nice warm welcome and very locally produced cider and beer.
The only improvements I would suggest would be to have the shop open more often (only open 3 hours for 4 days a week) and to have the Mill open longer on Sunday and possibly more often.
Best site stayed in to date - I have been camping for over 20 years.
We stayed here as the original site we intended to stay at in Monmouth was appalling. We travelled the Internet and decided on this site due to the reviews, location, dog friendly and open all year.
We phoned ahead to check availability and the staff were delightful, very welcoming and helpful. Our sat nav sent us through the country lanes and to an incorrect location. The staff guided us to this site, ringing us en route to check we were ok and on the right road, excellent customer service.
We arrived just after 6pm on a wet and dark evening and received a very walk welcome and taken to our pitch by Jenny whom had been in contact with us regularly on our drive to this site. Even in the dark you could appreciate the standard of this site - extremely high!
There is a security barrier as you enter the site, reception is directly to your right at the barrier. There is also an information office to the left of reception providing a wealth of data about local places of interest.
The pitch was a hard standing with waste water, electric hook up and fresh water, there are shrubs around each pitch which are beautifully kept, subtle lighting in the evenings and lighting outside the toilet blocks and refuse area.
The toilets and showers are immaculate, warm and have a radio channel transmitting gently which is lovely. The showers are not tokens or push buttons, normal good powered showers with plenty of space to put your wash kit and clothes, the showers themselves are spotless and roomy. This is 5 star plus camping - exceptional. The sinks have hand wash in each cubicle, there is a hair dryer and there are amusing pictures on the wall.
This high standard is not only provided to humans - there is a separate shower (together with allocated hair dryer) for dogs, outstanding! This is the most dog friendly site we have ever stayed at.
This site has 35 acres of land, the site is immaculate, well kept, grass is kept short and shrubs pruned beautifully and has a river running along side it. There are walks from this site, details and maps available from reception where the owners provide multiple copies which they welcome you to take and enjoy. The staff are lovely, all bright and cheery and very helpful providing information and checking you are ok.
It was an extremely wet Saturday, we opted for the walk into Peterchurch from the site, directions being provided from the owners. Whilst it was wet and quite muddy it was a lovely walk along the river to this village. The tower if St Peters Church provides an excellent navigation point which ensures you are on the right path.
There is a Londis in the village, magnificent church built in 1130 and the grave of Robert Jones Whom gained the Victoria Cross for his bravery during Rorkes Drift, it is worth an amble around the church yard which has a massive Yew tree to shelter under. The tower of this church is made from fibre glass and at 186ft is one of the tallest in England.
We were quite wet and muddy and wished to partake in a well deserved drink at the Boughton Arms and were delighted when we saw the sign outside this pub which read 'Boots and Paws Welcome'. This is a traditional pub that provides a very warm welcome and free WiFi. The lounge is to the left and bar to the right, muddy wet humans and dogs are made extremely welcome. The Landlord and Landlady are most hospitable and chatty. The locals are very friendly and the food very good and reasonable. There is a bus stop directly opposite the pub which stops at the entrance to this camp site which we took advantage of (dogs are welcome on the bus too).
Sunday brought beautiful weather, we ambled around the site which has a restaurant, shop (not open when we investigated), throughout the site is immaculate, the children's play area is both large and pretty, there is a pitch and putt area, the dog walk is very good and has many buckets available to ensure the high standard of cleanliness is maintained.
An amazing site with exceptional staff and definitely one we will be returning to. There is no mobile signal which I personally enjoyed.
I think this is the best site we have ever been to. So neat and clean. The pitches were excellent and a really good size with everything literally on tap! The toilet and shower block facilities were pristine. The staff were so friendly - couldn't do enough for you. The dog walking facilities were excellent - pooh buckets everywhere! The food in The Mill was excellent although the portions were huge. It's a shame it is only open from Thursday to Sunday. Lovely area, not far from Symonds Yat, Mommouth etc. We will definitely be returning.
Went to this site on spur of moment after leaving another site shortly after arriving as was awful. Won't name and shame. .
Upon arrival to poston mill you are warmly greeted with a friendly smile. Staff are really happy to help very friendly and happy.
A member of staff took us to our pitch which was huge and serviced with own tap and tv aerial. Took a look round short while after' lovely walk ways along river path to showers ect. Spotlessly clean. Radio going in all blocks in laundry room and wash rooms. Huge park or kids and adults with tennis. Table tennis available and 9 hole golf at no extra charge.
There is an old mill pub.
In one weekend we ate at the mill three times the food was lovely staff there too were smiling all the time. They allow dogs in the little bar area too which is good or them who feel a tad tied with there dogs. Lovely beer garden.
Have not got enough to say about this site I good go on and on.
We left in the rain but was still lovely even in the rain nothing water logged.
Oh and like the taps, bowls and doggie buckets dotted around the park.
Very well kept park. One of the best I have been on.
Extremely well kept and maintained. Large grass or hard standing pitches set in 35 acres of parkland alongside the river Dore. The dog walking facilities are second to none with many walks straight from the site, as well as the best on-site dog walking facilities we have ever come across.
The toilet block is kept immaculately clean and there is even a dog washing area with shower and hair dryer!
Adjoining the site is a superb bar and restaurant serving lovely food at very reasonable prices.
About I mile down the road in Peterchurch is a Bistro called Food for Thought, which is well worth a visit.
If you have small (or medium sized) children I defy you to find a better play area for them in the UK.
The site is very handy for days out in Hay-on-Wye, Ross-on-Wye, Hereford, Abergavenny and Monmouth to name but a few places worth visiting.
If I had to make one criticism it would be that the toilet block is a few hundred yards from the camping field. A small price to pay for being on one of the UKs' best campsites!
