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 ;-)

What a lovely site, what a beautiful area, only one shower an one mens 'n' womans toilet but never had any problem, John was very friendly, and had a ongoing garage sale which was brill, the f/chip shop in Bream is very good (3 min drive), Symonds Yat, Ross on wye, Monmouth and Hereford all within an hour and the forest was beautiful, also for 1 a night you hire a freesat box, the tv and phone signal are poor bliss!, would recommend this site to all that like peace an quiet, hopefully be back next year

Great little site, very peaceful with basic amenities but throughly enjoyed

Our stay, plenty of quiet of park places to walk the dog

Owner very helpful and let you enjoy your stay at your own place

Just don't forget your 20ps for the shower

Very nice site in beautiful location, in thr midst of the Forest of Dean. Peaceful site with birds thoroughly enjoying the bird table offerings. Very clean toilets and shower. No shops near but within a 2 or 3 mile radius, and a few miles further gets you lidl etc.

Pub or restaurant you will need to travel to, but within a few miles.

No internet or phone access, , but can hire a digi box to obtain tv.

This we found was an absolute gem of a small campsite. Set in a rural location pretty much surrounded by forest and forest walks right on the doorstep in every direction. Our dog like us loved the walking. We also had bikes, by avoiding some of the steep hills you can soon get on plentiful cycle trails through the forest ideal for the recreational cyclist.

The site itself has well terraced hard standing pitches. It is worth making sure you tell the very helpful and always available owner the size of the unit as some pitches are slightly difficult to get into if you are on the larger size.

Facilities are perfectly adequate with separate male and female loos. There is a separate electric shower where your 20p will give you a plentiful supply of hot water.

In addition to good recycling and information there is also a garage full of bric brac for the camper where funds go to the local chapel. We didn't try the pub which is a mile up the road.

Don't work on keeping in touch with the outside world. Internet can be bought but 4g intermittent, radio reception poor, DAB non-existent, T V - use the aerial provided. So perfect for the quiet break

Add to all this a very reasonable price structure it is a site we will look to revisit on a regular basis

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.
