Easy to get to and plenty in the surrounding area. Nice pool, lodges and pods. Tidy campsite. Ledbury lovely.

Booked site and informed them have a large tent requiring electric hook up but arrived to only 2 available pitches 1 too small leaving the remaining one in middle of field surrounded by lots of tents and a sloping pitch. Should be 6m around tents but wasn't.

Sorry to say the Site was very noisy first night kept awake till 1. 00 am. Dogs off leads which the site rules said not allowed.

I Got told off by caravan owner who on leaving wanted to put his car nearer to his caravan and our hook up and tent were in the way blamed us even though plenty room available as being caravanners ourselves for 9 years we understand and always consider other people.

The showers/toilets very nice and new but could do with vacant or engaged sign as people not sure if engaged or vacant this was off putting when in the shower and a shower curtain would be a good idea. Genuinely Feel orchard field too small for number of tents allowed this month.

The washing up facilities were good and if you wish to stay in a lodge or pod they are very impressive but feel this would have been a better site for us if came out of season as first time lost money and had to leave a site earlier then planned.

We have spent several years visiting this site and have always had a wonderful reception from the owners. We started going there when it was just a field and watched it develop. It is unfortunate that the wind farm arrived soon after they opened, but this is getting very common. You go somewhere and next time you go windmills have popped up.

The entrance is wide and easy to approach.

The pitches are a generous size and accommodate our large caravan, awning and car. Pitches are separated by small bushes and flowers are around the site.

The toilet block is always clean, you do pay for showers, as you do on many sites. If they were free some people abuse this and shower for half an hour.

There is a play area for the children and also a wood where they can explore and build dens, under parental supervision.

There is plenty to do in the area.

Another reviewer gave a very picky report about this site, as he did about other sites he visited. I don't really know what he was after, but obviously we won't meet him when we visit again next month.

As for charging for visitors, we have come across it on some sites, but I think the owners did it as they were getting caravans coming for a weekend and several families with children were arriving for the day taking advantage of the facilities. Also it wasn't a relaxing atmosphere for the other caravanners.

Well done Woodside Ridge. See you again in August.

Stayed on a sunny July weekend. Stayed in the Orchard field which is great but slopes a little so if you are camping you might want to get there early to pick the better pitches. The staff and owner were really friendly. Fires are allowed in the fire pits that you can hire for 5 a day. Firewood is also available for 5 which will get you though an evening.

The bottom lake is great for fishing and is also very popular for swimming and inflatables. Probably best avoided on busy summer days if you are looking for a quiet fishing spot. We caught lots with my 10 year old son catching good sized Carp, but it was packed on the Saturday.

You can walk to Ledbury and there is a footpath that cuts off a corner, but this has been diverted by the farmer so quicker sticking to the roads.

Grounds are immaculate and this is a great site other than the toilets and showers that are too few in number and not very clean. That won't put us off and we will certainly be back

Absolutely beautiful site! A little slope so needed to use our ramps to level the caravan. A very quiet site with lovely walks and plenty of wildlife to look for. There's a large pond/small lake where you can fish (extra charge) or swim in. The kids loved jumping in and splashing about. The chalets also look beautiful. Not very near anywhere. Shower/toilet facilities are small and basic, with 2 toilets and I think 1 shower in the ladies. No playground but a big field to play in. I think the nearest shop is approximately 15 mins drive away. We wanted to relax and you can definitely do this at this site.

I cannot say enough about this place! We like a mixture of vibrant/ hippy/ party type sites and quiet, tranquil ones when we go away - this is definitely the latter. At 21 for 2 adults, EHU and dog it is certainly at the expensive end of what we would pay.

The best attraction here for me has to be the lake on site, in which you can swim. I simply love outdoor swimming so even though it was March I was in there - it must be really amazing in summer.

Toilets were in a portacabin but immaculate and well maintained. Showers are in a barn type building which also houses a huge mill! There is a donkey and some sheep in an adjoining field. Washing up point and drinking water tap are under cover.

We got stuck in the mud but a chap came straight down with his tractor and pulled us out, much appreciated!

Woodside is a lovely site. We couldn't believe how quiet it was for August. When we arrived on the Saturday there were 10-12 other caravans/tents on the lower field, and by Monday only 3 or 4, and as the field is big, there was plenty of space and nobody camped too close to anyone else. The EHU is all at one end of the field, so if you want electric, you're more likely to be closer to other campers. It was peaceful all the time though - no noise after about 10pm, and nothing early morning either.

The lower field does need extra showers (although we didn't have to queue at all, I can imagine it would be quite busy at weekends when the site is fuller). There are other showers near reception on the other side of the lane but I think at least one more for each sex would help on the lower field, especially for families with smaller kids. The owners did tell us that they had tried to build additional showers but have had planning problems.

The lake in the field next to the lower camping field was fantastic. We swam in it every day - it was cold at first, but you soon got used to it. You can fish in it too, and have small boats on it. Good fun. Loads of room for games too, either on that field or on the camping field. There is no kids play area, but that didn't bother our 9 year old.

Ledbury is a couple of miles away. You could walk it, but it would be a bit far and some of the route would be along narrow lanes without footpaths. It's a nice town, with a few pubs, cafes and restaurants. We only ate at the Olive Tree, lovely Italian. Other campers recommended the Prince of Wales, and a couple of locals said the Talbot was good, but we didn't eat at either of them.

Woodside is a good base for visiting lots of different places - the Malverns, loads of National Trust properties, Wye Valley and Forest of Dean aren't too far, or Gloucester, Worcester and Hereford.

We definitely would go back. The owners are lovely - friendly and helpful.
