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 ;-)

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

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.
