Just got back from Easter Hols from this great site Thurs to Monday. Staff show you to pitch and if you need fire wood for campfire will bring it to your pitch. Toilet block, Showers, laundry great but I think there could be more showers needed due to how many campers use the site only 2 in lady's and gents need some more please. Plenty of room for kids to run around and make friends, also play on the rope swings on the trees, the views are great and a good walk is from the site to Tintern Abbey. Will be back to this campsite again like many others.

This was a last minute booking for the bank holiday weekend. We've just bought a new satnav and wanted to try it out, thanks for the warning on a previous review as it announced that we'd arrived as soon as the tarmac ran out - just keep going. The speed bumps are signed but the track was quite dusty so you don't want to go too fast anyway. On arrival, you check in and are given a colour coded band to go in your car. For tents it's £6 per person and £4 for children which I thought was pretty cheap. There aren't any marked pitches you're just told to go and put your tent next to a firepit.

The site was a lot larger than I expected - 20 pitches? more like 200 but it was a delight. The owners are, indeed, very friendly and helpful and the views over the valley are stunning.

The main site is pretty level but, at busy times, the 'events' field is opened up and that slopes - but not impossibly. The shower block was a bit overstretched over such a busy weekend but was always clean and the loo roll never ran out although the water pressure in the women's showers left a lot to be desired. Portaloos were scattered around the site and were changed on Sunday. I don't think they got too bad.

The firepits are an obvious attraction and wood costs £4 per bag.

On Saturday, we drove up to Monmouth (about 10 miles) which is well worth a visit. Sunday, we walked to Brockweir (once you get into the woods turn right) and had a mooch around the Moravian church. When you get to the main road with the pub on your left, turn left and follow the road over the bridge and, on your left, go down the steps onto the old railway track. It's a short walk to Tintern station with a play area for kids, a tea room, wooden sculptures and a tiny sit and ride steam train. If you walk to the end of the station site you can then walk 2 km to Tintern and back up to the campsite via the Devil's Pulpit.

I loved this site and will definitely be going back but, sadly, without OH as he didn't like it at all. No accounting for taste, is there?

We've just returned from a week at this site and would absolutely return(2x adults 3x children 3 yrs to 16 yrs)

There are male & female shower blocks and a unisex disabled bathroom, with a large child washing sink in the ladies block - very useful for sitting my 3 year old in as it's difficult with a fixed shower to bathe them properly.

The showers are clean (although the curtains could do with changing now as they are grubby) and yes, it's £1 a go for 4 mins but I was able to wash myself & my 5 year old and still some time spare. Plus they are big cubicles with massive shower head and lovely hot water immediately. The site prices are average for this kind of site and the extra £1 was no biggie.

There are 2 showers per block but even on the busiest days I never had to wait. There is a washing machine & tumble dryer in the indoor washing up room as well as outdoor washing up sinks (Cost me £2 to wash & tumble a full load). The only thing missing is a charge point for phones etc but they may have let us do that in the office if we'd asked. The office also has a fridge & freezer which we used daily as well as lots of useful info and a stock of essentials for purchase.

The site is great, not overcrowded and the pitches are large so you never feel you are in someone elses space. The firepits are fantastic, one per pitch. Best spot is on the lower part of the main field with views over the valley. Safe site with trees for shade and rope swings for fun. There are portaloos dotted around as it is a large site and these were the only real negative - v. Dirty and smelly, I'd rather go up to the washblock.

The staff are great, very friendly and helpful and there was always someone around as it is a family run site - with a 2 way radio in the office if they are in the main house. A family friendly site but there were singles and couples of all ages too so it was never too hectic with children. It was a real getaway, we built a den in the woods next to the site and saw badgers there at dusk. We walked down to Brockweir and back round using the well signed paths and spent a day in Chepstow too which is only ten minutes down the road. So it's a well connected site even though you feel far away from the rat race. We'll definitely be back!

Our third visit to this amazing site and looking forward to many more to come.

I've stayed here with family and friends and each time has been a relaxing and pleasant experience.

The site is absolutely first rate with exceptional cleanliness throughout and always a warm welcome.

The prices are exceptionally reasonable and good value; and I've done enough camp sites in the UK to know.

The views over the Wye Valley are simply stunning and seeing the mist slowly rise down in the valley in the mornings is not to be missed.

The owners will not only tell you where to walk and visit but they'll educate you on the history of the place too. A walk down to Tintern via Devils Pulpit is a must on any day and an ice cream or beer on the return trip is always welcomed but better to sit around the camp fire in the evening and share a beer with friends whilst the kids explore!

Highly recommended!

What a great camp site! Me, my partner and 3 year old had a great time here. The site is well maintained and spacious and the staff are friendly and helpful. The showers, washrooms and toilets are kept clean. Perfectly adequate. It was pretty much full on our visit but didn't feel over crowded. The fire bowls are a great idea made out of old alloys. We visited perry grove train and tree top adventure. Our 3 yr old absolutely loved it! Spent the whole day there. I would definitely stay at beeches again.

As all the other reviews the sat nav does take you there but just keep going down the lane.

This Campsite is in a beautiful location. With some spectacular views.

You can walk to Tintern and Offa's dyke from the site. So no need to use your car, if walking is what you are after.

It is an extremely popular site. Especially with groups of families. So camping on your own or with just your own family may prove daunting.

There are no dog bins on site. So you would have to put dog waste in the general rubbish bins. Although the campsite itself is very dog friendly.

The staff are friendly and helpful and I believe you do get value for money.

However. And I could not believe this. The showers are. Wait for it. £1 for 4 minutes! What a rip off! The showers are fairly clean and the water is hot. The shower heads are huge. So you get a lovely warm deluge of water. But honestly. £1 for 4 mins!
