I found this site by accident while driving around and have used it twice. It is a few minutes driving from the A466 and a 10 minute walk from The Ostrich Inn in Newland, which serves good food and can be busy in the evening.
The site is on a large field with varying degrees of slope, with a small secluded area at the far end that I was not aware of until the site owner mentioned that it was already taken!
There is no EHU, several fresh water taps, a rubbish/recycling point near the entrance and a couple of portaloos (which I never used) at the far end. A shower (OK) and toilet (no sink) are available behind the farmhouse, past the garden and bird feeders. Not enough to avoid queues during the busier months.
The owner is friendly and apparently tries to keep the site open all year. Only £5 a night per person, so good value if you are solo.
Quite a nice view over the farm and the road is pretty quiet at night.
Monmouth is about 10 minutes away when driving and has a good selection of shops for the essentials, and Tintern Abbey is about 10 minutes away in the other direction.
I will definitely use this site again because it's nicely situated when travelling from/to South Wales to/from the Midlands.
Very small and basic campsite with only one toilet and shower, both pretty busy and not very hygienic. No facilities to wash in or wash up.
Site was crowded with tents pitching almost on top of each other so not much privacy. BBQ's were allowed which we turned into a fire after eating, which was great, but the owners do not like anyone staying up after dark, so beware if you want to stay up later than 9. 30!
Will definitely not return or recommend this site to anyone.
Stayed for a long weekend with a group of friends.
Nice field, easy to get the pegs in. Lots of space, and pretty quiet, although the road can be a bit noisy at times (as can the church bells on a Friday night!)
Very basic facilities - one loo and a shower in a block, another portaloo at the other end of the field, and plenty of standpipes. As noted by other reviewers, there is no basin in the toilet, nowhere to wash up, and the shower is a bit feeble. However, the site is cheap, and the only bit that really bothered us was the lack of handbasin.
Good location, easy to get to Monmouth, Symonds Yat and Forest of Dean.
The owner was friendly and the site had a very relaxed feel. It wasn't busy even when it was full, and there was always plenty of space for the kids to play games. I think I would come back.
A small & very basic campsite with friendly owners that is ideally placed for exploring The Forest of Dean, Symonds Yat, and the river Wye.
The field is very peaceful and there is plenty of space for the number of tents on the site.
Although we enjoyed our stay and may use it again for short breaks of 2 or 3 nights there are lots of issues with the site. The main problem is that there is only one electric shower & a toilet behind the main house and no sinks or hot water. There was a rather grim old Porta-Loo in the field but our group would only use it when too desperate to queue.
The lack of sinks & hot water made it very difficult to wash pots & pans or brush teeth which resulted in the areas around the stand-pipes getting really unpleasant even during a relatively dry period of the summer.
We paid the same price to stay at sites with much better facilities and I hope that the owners will invest to address these problems.
I was disappointed by The Ostrich Inn as we were expecting a treat having read it’s reviews. We arrived early in the evening and were served sour beer and warm lager. The bar smelled of dogs and although the food looked ok it certainly wasn’t special and we were not prepared to pay £8.50 for a Ploughman’s.
We did find several beautiful hotels and pubs in the neighbouring villages with friendly and welcoming staff serving great food and beer at reasonable prices, so it’s worth looking around if you have got someone who is prepared to be “designated driver”.
