Lovely site next to the forest. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the road is not too good for walking on. Bus stop is just up the road from the site though we didn't use the service.

The Miners Arms at Sling was brilliant - lovely home cooked food at good prices. No phone signal is a bit of a pain - but not the end of the world! The toilet and shower facilities were a bit rustic but very clean. Very good value for money. We would definitely return.

Just spent Easter at Hawthorne cottage, what a lovely site. The owners cannot do enough for you they even offered to set up my tv, the 1 pound a night for the free view box is good value. Was a bit worried about only 1 toilet for male and 1 shower but never had to queue up and the site was full. The lovely walks in the forest on the door step. Would go back again.

Fantastic little site. Excellent for dogs, with access to the woods and the forest directly from the site. Several dog friendly pubs around-we went to the Butchers Arms in Clearwell, which had lovely food and a very friendly atmosphere-just remember to book. Coleford, nearby, was the only disappointment of our stay in the area. Try the fish and chip shop in Bream (5 minute drive from site, just off main road)-fantastic! No children allowed under 14 years so very peaceful.

What a lovely site. It is in a beautiful situation with direct access to the forest. Male and female toilets with one unisex shower which is 20p (which is plenty of time). They are situated in shed type buildings which have been upvc lined inside. They were OK with regard to warmth but it wasn't cold when we went. Not sure what it would be like when it gets really cold. They were lovely and clean, which to me is more important. The owners have really done a lot of work to this site. There is no TV reception at all but they have installed satelite dishes for you to use and you rent a digibox for a very small nominal fee. Most plots have a bird table.

There is a very nice pub in Sling which did excellent food, with offers on different days. It took us 20 minutes to walk there, but take your torch if you go at night. It was an easy walk but is all road way. There is also another pub which is in Bream but we didn't try that. There is a Spar in Bream and a general store in Sling. Takes about 30 to 40 minutes to walk to Bream which is up and down hill. Road quite dangerous with mad drivers who were overtaking on bends with us walking on the side of the road. !

I really loved this site and will certainly be returning.

This is a fantastic site and great value for money. We arrived but were unable to unhitch the caravan. The owner was very helpful. We tried most everything to unhitch then all of a sudden were successful. The problem turned out to be a broken friction stabiliser pad. After the drama we settled in and really enjoyed our few days of rest. The weather was brilliant so we were able to sit outside and listen to the birds. We walked in the forest with the dogs. All in al this is most definitely a site that we will revisit. It's beautiful ; peaceful and most likely the best site we have visited. We shall return later in the year.

What a gem, there are not a lot of sites in this area but this one is superb and great value for money. The site is on the edge of the forest so brilliant for walkers, cyclists and peace lovers. It is somewhat hilly in this area so not great if you like level surfaces!

The camp site only takes caravans and motorhomes, no tents and has x10 spacious plots, all level, with hard standing and grass and kept in great condition. Though on a hill it is terraced and so gives good views into the local valley, a sun trap but protected from winds. The toilet / shower block is sufficient but could do with a bit of a refit, but it is clean enough. The 20p shower is warm and efficient and gives a reasonable shower time (wash the hair first though or take another 20p if you like to linger) there is 1 water tap but a very long hose is available in the shed if you do not have a mobile container. The owner is always on hand, very laid back and very helpful.

Shops and pubs are available in most of the local towns but nothing is in walking distance. The Montague Arms pub is about a mile away, uphill but it does not look that inviting and appeared closed a lot of the time we were there, we were recommended the Miners arms in Sway but did not try it.

Phone signal is non existent, 95% of the time (02 and Vodafone). The owner has placed satellite dishes on each plot for those who must have TV; we prefer board games and cards, so did not need it and there is a Club WIFI service here that is superb and with great bandwidth. We used it for iplayer, etc and general internet on the odd occasion and no buffering even though the site was fully used, the signal was superb and reliable.

We thoroughly loved our week here and if we are in the area again we certainly would book this place, great value for money. Excellent!
