 July 30th - 31st 2004
A wonderful, friendly campsite, with Bed & Breakfast also available. Not far from the Forest of Dean, this was perfect for our planned holiday, and although only small, we were not disappointed.
The owners were very friendly and gave us several options as to where we could pitch and a guide to the local area's attractions, as well as a sheet of information about the site rules, and the locations of the facilities (etc).
The toilet and shower facilities are next to the house (which is by the entrance), so is very central to the site, easily accessible and not hard to find in the middle of the night, even without a torch. Each of the toilets have washing up facilities, which have everything you need except washing up liquid and a drainer, which is brilliant, because we didn't bring anything.
There was a very friendly cat, which the children on the campsite liked stroking, and I enjoyed as well. The chickens and ducks stated on the website were nowhere to be seen, however - although we certainly heard the Cockerel in the morning!
Tourist information is available in the house, both leaflets/brochures, and personal information when you ask the owners of the site, as well as essential groceries such as milk, bread, and butter (etc).
Pitching was a little difficult, because as stated in a previous review, the ground can be rocky in places.
Overall, a brilliant site, and we were a little sad to leave, but if ever we return to the Forest of Dean, we shall definitely stay here, if not camping, at the Bed & Breakfast instead.

We stayed here for one night in our motorhome, I thought this site was lovely - especially if you are in a tent - we were in our motorhome - it is small! We were in the orchard and it was great with the apples, pear and other fruit trees. The facilities are fine - this site is one of those super unspoilt ones - don't take the kids for more than one night though, not much for them to do.

Welcome was really friendly and relaxed, everything explained, shown around the grounds and then left to our own devices. Very informal, pitch pegs being used as a guide only. Toilet facilities were basic but scrupulously clean. Bricks were provided for disposable BBQs. Loved every minute of it. Will definitely return

Weekend visit to Forest Gate - July 2002.

The site is easy to find, as it is on the A40. It is level with a nice balance of tents and vans and very well kept by the owners. Although there is noise from the A40 trunk road, we did not find this a problem. Ground for tent pegs a little stony but OK if wind is light. As the Site is the former garden of a large Rectory, it provides many attractive pitch areas amongst various sized trees and flowering shrubs. The grass is kept short and is of lawn quality. There are plenty of water points and rubbish bins around the site.

Facilities as web site. The men's and women's toilets are housed in converted outbuildings giving a pleasant rustic feel, each having three WC cubicles, three large wash hand basins with mirrors and one shower. There were facilities for washing up dishes in both toilets. Hot and cold water provided no extra charges. We found the owners very welcoming and always on hand when required. An information sheet is given to campers on arrival, which we found useful. Those arriving after midday had the option of leaving by 5.00 p.m. on the day of departure. This enabled us to get the most out of our weekend visit, having arrived late on Friday.

The surrounding area is well served with public footpaths. We had two walks. On the Saturday from the site a walk of approximately 12 miles, to Severn Mill via Ley Mill, Grange Court and Westbury on Severn, where we had a Pub lunch. We returned via Blaisdon stopping for refreshment at the Red Hart, just in time as the landlord was shutting up at 2.30 p.m.

On the Sunday a circular walk from the site of approximately 5 miles to Huntly church, Glasshouse Hill and Glasshouse, then to Taynton using the Wysis Way, or that was the plan. At Byford Farm we found the way barred by padlocked gates and a warning sign about guard dogs. We decided not to proceed and diverted South down the B4216. We climbed the stile on the footpath immediately North of Elliot's farm and found the path barred by two lines of electrified tape with no means of crossing. The tapes were enclosing three large horses, which took a great interest in us. We decided that crawling under the tapes with the horses present was not wise. We returned to the road completing our walk via the footpath to Huntley passing between Northend Farm and Great Adam's Wood.

We found that the public footpaths were not always 'way marked' adequately along their route. Ordnance Survey Explorer Sheet OL14 is essential walking equipment. Found a number of public footpaths blocked by waist high standing crops and menacing livestock, mainly young bullocks. We played safe and made detours a number of times. Stout walking stick plus loud shouting voice required. On the plus side we found that most field gates were not padlocked and the occasional one that was, easily climbed. In fact it was easier to climb over a five bar gate, than to negotiate some of the stiles that had not been maintained.

Verdict: Will definitely use this site again. Many advantages which far outweigh any traffic noise from the A40. We liked the option of leaving by 5.00 p.m.
