Just got back from Tressek. We stayed three nights in a tent: my wife two kids, and I. This cost us 19. 50 p/n. The sight was pretty much as expected: basic: portaloos and a tap only and campfires allowed! It is very much sold on being a quiet site: absolutely no music or loud noise allowed, as the signs stated. We were happy with this and found it very refreshing. On our second night though there was a group of lads opposite us, maybe on a stag trip who played music unchallenged by the owners and had their hubbly bubbly pipe out on show which I presume was only used for tabacco: they woke me up at 12. 50AM as well as 6. 50. *I'm not a fussy old man, but it is worth remembering that depending on the guests your experience may be very different and the owners may not enforce the rules/run a tight site. It was generally populated by rowers and families rather than groups of lads/large family parties. The site is clean, the views back towards the village are beautiful. The portaloos got a bit nasty by day 3, but always had paper in them. It is worth noting that although you are on the river bank, you cannot see the water and are set back a little. You can buy fire wood from the owners when they come round every night and there are loads of allocated fire areas. *Do not expect to be able to forage for fire wood as there is no oportunity to do so. The village us beautiful with a fantastic Victorian Italian style church and amazing views and countryside. The local pub has a shop built in. We popped in for a drink which was nice, but food starts at 13 and averages 15 a meal, so not for us this time. Overall I loved it. Will go again, happily.

Just back from a night here and were a little disappointed. Great location but noisy and the facilities were very basic given the price. We knew it was a basic campsite before we went, but the toilets weren't kept clean which was disappointing. Our biggest issue was the noise- we were kept up half the night by large groups shouting and swearing into the early hours. The campsite is advertised as being a quiet one so we felt the owners should have enforced that, but instead they vanished come 6pm! The location was great for kayaking though so that's a plus point!

I have been to this site before and it has been pretty empty and we have even had the small separate field, so it feels even more secluded! Unfortunately this time we were there on a bank holiday so it was very busy, plus the small field had been reserved (which I wasn't aware people could do, or we would have!)

The area is beautiful, it is right on the river bank, with a pebbly entrance to the river, ideal for canoe and perfect for paddling, swimming and catching things in nets! The little village is pretty, the church is well worth a walk upto. There is a pub just up from the site, it smelt lovely in there! They have a small, basic shop attached that was open the same hours as the pub, so easy to stock up on milk, bread, playing cards or even get your bacon for the morning. The pub also sold fire wood as well as the lady from the campsite having some when she came to collect money.

I felt like the site was more aimed at people passing in their canoes, it was very basic (4 portaloo's in our field) and they smelt pretty bad by the end (although always stocked with toilet roll and soap) the owner came to collect money and that was all we saw of her, so even when people were loud at night and playing music nothing was done about it. This wouldn't be such an issue if we hadn't ended up paying quite a lot to camp as all children had to be paid for, even the toddlers. It was also quite impersonal and the owner woke some campers next to us at 8am on a Sunday declaring they had to pay then, not the attitude you expect in such a relaxed environment.

I wouldn't stop again unless as part of a canoeing trip, it is a shame because it is so beautiful and secluded it is just what some campers want, and with a little bit more effort and a few simple touches it would be lovely.

This campsite did exactly what the website showed. Basic, but kept clean. It has fresh water, portaloo's and a field to camp in. The portaloo's did get a bit smelly towards the end of the week (they are cleaned regularly, but only emptied once a week).

The site was beautiful, right on the banks of the Wye river, with the Hoarwithy church in the background.

You could access the gravel 'beach' edge of the river and paddle and swim in the river.

A lovely pub across the field from the campsite, some lovely walks nearby and easy striking distance from Ross on Wye and the Dean Forest.

We didn't have any problems with noise (as some people leaving reviews have mentioned), a lot of people camping here are for 1 night only as they canoe down the river, rather than family's camping for a period of time. But the owner does only collect money and does not monitor the site or visit after 5pm

A lovely site on the edge of the river.

Plenty of places to have an open fire which was lovely. Wood for sale by owner or bring your own.

Lots of grass, plenty of space, lovely village & a nice pub.

Facilities were basic, but absolutely fine. Portaloos (OK, cleaned twice daily by owners), no showers/hot water (as advertised), plenty of fresh water points.

Fees were as advertised on their site - about 5 per adult, 3 child & 2 car. Pretty reasonable.

Beautiful river for swimming and canoeing, you can camp far enough from the river not to have to worry about young children too much.

Lots of outdoor activities in the local area.

Sadly, the 'rules' of the site were not adhered to by many of the users, late night & early morning noise (shouting & swearing) made it an unpleasant environment for the kids. The owners did not visit to check things after 5pm which was a shame or this could have been prevented. Overall a lovely site, but disappointing as it was not quite the peaceful family site that we had hoped for.

Just spent 3 days at the site and it was the perfect get away, we booked from the Sunday evening onwards to avoid the weekend rush which paid off. Amazing setting right by the river, good fishing, very good priced canoeing and most importantly for me fires were allowed, now that's camping !

Site owner was very friendly and delivered fire wood to your tent and the pub which was very close proved very convenient. Will definitely be going back !
