Everything everyone has said is very true. A quaint little site with very clean if old facilities. One 20p enough for a decent hot shower. The setting is gorgeous and lots to see around. We went to Puzzlewood which was a great old wood and fun to explore. The chip shop in Bream was scrummy and The Miners did great food. Would visit again despite the 3 hour journey to get there. Lovely chap who runs it and the freeview box was well worth it to watch the GP.

Little gem of a site in the forest of Dean. Toilet and showers are basic, but at 13. 50 a night with hook up and awning on hardstanding and satellite hook up for 5 a week, generous pitches.

Will be returning

A lovely peaceful site, good access and hard standing pitches. Finally able to watch our TV with the satellite dishes provided on every pitch. The birds, the forest, great cycle rides, walks - delightful. Very good value for money at 13 a night - take your 20p for a long hot shower. We cycled up the road and off to the right on the disused railway track to Parkend (lovely little bike hire cafe) and the found our way back over the hill to the campsite with the aid of a cycle map bought from the bike cafe! We'll be back.

I agree totally with the previous reviewers comments. This is a lovely site in a lovely place. It has the benefit of the beautiful forest and it's amazing walks and cycle trails straight off site. We have 4 dogs that had more exercise than they've probably ever had on a holiday. Mostly we walked through the many forest trails from the site. Another day we drove a short way, parked, and then walked to Tintern Abbey, after walking part of Offas Dyke. We also walked from the site to the Steam Railway station at Parkend, and drove to Lydney, where there is a further Steam Railway station and the Harbour Walk.

The site owner is a very amiable man who works hard looking after the site, despite the folly of one or two campers who leave lights on and doors open in the heated toilets and showers, something they surely don't do at home? There is no phone signal on 02, weak on 3, however you can buy wifi cards for different lengths of time and the signal/speed is very good. There is food waste, and rubbish recycling on site and pitches have food waste bins (apart from our pitch, no. 9, which had gone missing!).

There are plenty of shops within a short drive, Spar, fish shop, butcher and for those requiring more, a Tesco in Lydney. There are castles, caves and other attractions within a reasonable driving distance.

We would definitely recommend this site to anyone who enjoys a peaceful country retreat with great walks in a natural environment, but within easy distance of historic sites and attractions.

Well, we couldn't wait till next year, had 3 days here again, wish it was more, We will be coming back again as it is such a lovely quiet site.

The sound of the birds in the morning is wonderful to wake up to, the forest walks are brilliant, again no queueing for the toilets or shower.

Visited Hereford, Ross, Lydney all within 1 hours drive, the owner is such a nice helpful guy, so with that! see you next year.

Kids all grown up, well, youngest almost 15. Which just got him inside the gates of this tucked away caravan site (14 minimum age limit).

This was the first time we had opted for the 'small, family owned' style site. And what an absolute pleasure it was. Only 10 pitches, all manicured to perfection, one loo for the ladies, one loo for the gents, one shower to be shared between both, all kept clean and fresh and never a queue for any!

VERY limited signal (if any at all) on your mobiles, so expect a real 'Get away from it all' break. Owner has just about every gadget available for obtaining TV signal though, available for a very modest rental fee of 5 for the week.

On site, you'll find a 'garage sale' where visitors may donate unwanted items. These items are then offered back for sale and the proceeds donated to the local chapel. An abundance of dvd and books are offered here so well worth a browse!

We quickly discovered that nothing was far away from 'base camp'. Nearest shop (generously stocked with all kinds of everything); 5 mins. Likewise nearest chippy! Wonderful forest walks ON THE DOORSTEP and ALL ELSE that the forest has to offer only a 'stones throw' away. Go Ape, Segway, Kayaking, Cycling, Picnic/BBQ parks, INCREDIBLE walks. This evolved into one of our most successful and pleasureable hols, ever.

Reading past reviews, others have described this place as 'a gem' and I couldn't agree more. One reviewer jokes that they were conflicted as to whether or not they should reveal this 'find' or keep it to themselves. I'm hitting the 'submit review' button before I start to overthink it ;-)
