Reviewer: Katskorner 8 reviews from this member

We have just returned from another weekend at this site. We like to try and go once a year as it is so pretty and convenient.

Prices have gone up a bit - 21 for Fri to Sun nights plus extras for awning and more than two people (but no charge for under 8's), dropping to 17 for Mon thru Thursday nights, plus extras.

The site is as well-maintained as ever with loads of flowers and hanging baskets and well maintained pitches.

There are lots of seasonal pitches and most people seem to come here every year as they all know each other and we recognised some from last year. Although tolerance to children seems to have decreased from some of the seasonal vanners.

We used the bar on the Sat and Sunday night and as last year they gave out free chips and bread and butter on the Sunday night which the kids loved! They have a small selection of beers and one or sometimes two real ales as well at fairly competitive prices (2. 80 pint mostly. There is a Wetherspoons only 10 mins walk away across the river if you want options, as well as an abundance of pubs in Monmouth.

The only change this year apart from more seasonals (or so it seemed) and price increase was that they now charge for the showers. 20p for 4 minutes. I personally don't like being charged for a shower when I have paid over 20 for my pitch but hey-ho, that is what they now do.

We will probably be back though as we love the location.

Stayed at this site by chance and discovered a wonderful site. Everything is very clean and tidy, with large shower and toilet block, loads of free hot water.

There is a club house on site, but was not open when we were there (Wed), but it seems very popular with the 'Permanent' tourers, which occupy about 80% of the pitches throughout the season. It would seem that there is great competition among these with regard to the gardens that spring up around each caravan, and in the night it resembles the Blackpool illuminations with the amount of solar powered lights around each caravan.

The biggest surprise was the cost;- early Sept 12. 50 pn with EHu.

Will be sure to go back as it is a great base for the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean.

Nice site and reasonably priced, 5 min walk into Monmouth town and quite central for visiting the Forest of Dean and Hereford, Abergaveny etc.

Nice quiet and peaceful site with clean toilet and showers. A lot of 'threatening' rules - if you don't do as your told you will be TOLD to leave !

Apart from all the 'don't' signs and rules the site is well kept, this is probably due to the 'dont's' so I suppose it works. Most of the pitches looked like seasonal units with visitors being placed on the grass pitches.

The managers/caretakers were helpful when we arrived, but there was no information about the bar and food opening/closing times given or offered.

All in all the site was nice and clean and reasonably priced, even though you have to pay extra for a dog and awning, this said we will definitely be staying there again.

We have just returned from a weekend (3 nts) at Monmouth Caravan Park. It is just as well kept as when we visited last year. Toilets and showers kept very clean.

The site is nice and flat with plenty of flowers. We took our three young children (all under 8 so no charge for them) and our caravan. We would have been charged for the awning so we didn't bother with that.

Only one quibble: We parked our car next to our caravan between our pitch and another and the warden asked us to move it as it was a fire risk being too close to another unit. So we moved it although it didn't seem too close to us. Then later that day a camper van pitched up and it was obvious they knew the wardens and they were put right next to our pitch where there was not really room. We could have touched them as they were so close;

Then the other side, another family who knew the warden again arrived and pitched their tent so close that I could actually touch the tent from our caravan window. So much for the fire risk again. It was a bit annoying really. But saying that on the whole everyone was friendly and welcoming.

The site was busy as it was the music festival weekend so I can understand them maximising on business but they should be a bit more consistent with the rules. They are quite strict with the rules but not so much with the seasonals or people that they seem to know well but for the weekend we can deal with that as it is a nice site and we do plan to go back again. Anyway we might get to be regulars ourselves eventually!

A real positive was on the Sunday night, we all went into the bar and had a few drinks with friends and they brought us out free bowls of chips and bread and butter! Apparently they do it every Sunday evening. It was lovely and friendly and we had a fun evening :).

We will go back as it is a great base to explore. There is a kids park across the road, the town is ten minutes walk either via the road or through the fields over the river. There is a Wetherspoons in the town and an Iceland, Co-op, Waitrose and M&S Simply Food so you won't go hungry! The Forest of Dean is really close and it isn't far into Wales and the Brecons Beacons.

The on site bar serves breakfast, lunch and evening meals and opens most days (closed on quieter days so do check).

Good clean site. Toilets very good for disabled. Friendly staff. Good shops and restaurants nearby. Will def be going back. Other campers were very nice and helpful. Toilet blocks were cleaned daily. Good shower block. Dog walks. Went in to Monmouth, good food and pubs. Can't say enough about this camp site. Short drive into chepstow. Done loads of site seeing. Plenty for all the family to do, even the mother in law enjoyed.

Reviewer: Madasaman 35 reviews from this member

I use this site quite regularly as our best friends have their tourer sited there. There have been some slight changes to the way things are run now.

One of the sited owners has taken over the running of the on site club and the catering. The meals are now available virtually every day. There is also entertainment in the clubhouse once a month. The club boasts a pool table, which is extensively used and a dart board. There is bingo on a Saturday night.

As previous people have posted it is a reasonably flat site, and all pitches have electric.

The toilets are kept clean as are the showers. There are just two showers in both the male and female sections. There is also a disabled bathroom.

The walk into Monmouth is easy and there are plenty of pubs and places to eat. There isn't a children's playground on this site.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site and I will be going again shortly as it's an easy run for us.
