I could plainly see why this camp site has such high reviews. Has to be one of my favourite sites I have stayed at.

Site was very well kept, there weren't that many people using the site while we were there so it was nice and quiet. No separate toilet/shower block for men and women but was always nice and clean.

We had a pitch with hook up so it was nice and flat, the field does slope down towards the bottom where others were camped.

Just beyond the camping area was a lovely lake which was well worth a wander around. The rural surroundings were very pretty.

Shops and garage are nearby and a pub within walking distance.

This is a great site it is set by a lovely lake with spectacular views of the local landscape. The Forest of Dean offers plenty of activities and places to visit. The campsite itself has a large field area for camping and caravanning. The shower block is kept to a very high standard there are washing up facilities too. Excellent campsite for children as there is plenty of room for ball games etc. The campsite owners are very friendly and helpful. We have been visiting the site for over seven years now and come back time after time!

What a Fab site, how we havenít stayed here before is a mystery to us. We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Bean farm and we all had a ball. The site is very functional very well maintained and is blessed with great views of the country side and fishing lake. The owners were eager to please and extremely friendly. We love the fire pits / braziers and the fact that camp fires are encouraged is a great attribute, the kids loved the marshmallows! We stayed over Easter and Easter morning we awoke to a very pleasant surprise the Easter bunny had been leaving a well presented bundle of Easter treats ! a lovely touch and my two boys were thrilled to bits great effort. Bravo

We had a touring van and our pitch (2) was very generous and spacious, plenty of room for van awning, truck and garden with meters to spare either side before next pitch started. Facilities were ample and cleaned regularly never had to wait for a shower, or wc. They are unisex though. Stuart and Teresa were great hosts and we the Webbers will return. You come highly recommended

This site is in a beautiful setting with only 2 rural lanes passing it so it is very quiet.

There are a few electric hook ups at the top of the site, the middle is left clear to allow space for children to play. Apart from the top few pitches the rest of the site is sloping - think carefully before you pitch! The grass is in good condition and soil is pretty stone free.

We really enjoyed being able to rent a brazier and relax around an open fire in the evenings. The charge of £5 a night which included a bag of wood was very reasonable.

The site was quite full on the Bank Holiday weekend that we visited which resulted in a few queues for the 2 toilets, 3 showers and 2 wash hand basins. Tokens costing 50p need to be bought from reception for the showers and hair dryer. This gives 3 minutes of warm, powerful shower water. The washing up area has 2 sinks, but the water pressure is extremely poor and we ended up boiling water at the tent instead. While the toilet block is adequate, it was spoilt by a strong smell of drains which was present for the duration of our stay. I have tried to find out if this is unusual but have not received a reply from the owners. It was extremely unpleasant and would stop us from visiting again if we knew that this was not unusual.

We have just returned from a week at Beanhill Farm. We're a family of five - two adults, three children aged 12, 10 and 9 and were with another family. This is our 6th year of camping.

I can honestly say that Beanhill ticks all the boxes for my ideal campsite. It's a large field with ample space for children to play cricket or fly kites in the centre where we can keep an eye on them. The facilities were always clean and although I was a bit concerned about them being unisex it was never an issue. One thing that isn't clear on their website is that the showers cost 50p but it is token rather than coin operated - so remember to buy tokens before reception closes! It's also rare to find a campsite that allows braziers (rented from the campsite) and EHU.

We had EHU so were at the top of the field in a marked pitch. The pitches are generous - we have a Royal Pescara which is a huge tent and it fitted on perfectly. With the EHU we had our own tap, I'm not sure where the non-EHU campers got their water from.

There is plenty to do in the area, we spent a day at Puzzlewood, took a steam train on the Forest of Dean heritage line and walked for miles in the forest. We also spent a day at Cinderford hospital as my son broke his collarbone on the first day - not part of the usual tourist trail but the staff there were lovely. The campsite is close to Lydney with both a large Co-op and a Tesco for shopping.

My only really, really tiny niggle is that the washing up sink isn't well lit - there is a light near to it but not close enough, and there isn't anywhere to hang a lantern. Otherwise, I can't fault it. We will return next summer to do everything we missed this year.

What a real gem!

This site is what family camping is all about. We stayed for a weekend with two other families and had a wonderful time.

There is one large beautifully mown grassy field with electric hook ups at the top, these are the only marked pitches which gives tenters the freedom of the field with the proviso that the centre is left open for children (and grown up children) to play in. The field does slope but as long as you are careful where you pitch you should be fine.

Toilets and showers are immaculately clean however showers are not included in the pitch price (£22) and are 50p extra. Eggs are available to purchase on site and there's a decent pub (real ale, food and play area) within walking distance. The site is adjacent to a fishery with some lovely streams and pools which the children loved to walk around looking for wildlife. There is also a frisbee-golf course, although we didn't give this a go.

The site is very rural and clearly lovingly cared for by the very friendly and helpful owners. Fire bowls with a bag of wood are available to hire to complete the camping experience.

As the review below says why it is £3 per night cheaper for a caravan with ehu than a tent with ehu is a mystery but all in all thoroughly recommended.
