 Our kids (9/6/3) had an amazing time playing in the gorgeous wooded play area. I loved them being free to play outside safely without worrying.

Pitches 7 & 8 have views onto it through the trees.

Good variety of play equipment. Badminton net, swings, sand pit, slides, rocking animals, balance beams, one of those big circular swings for lots of kids… plus lots of places to hide and play wide games.

Showers and toilets the cleanest I’ve seen. Shop full of useful essentials, delicious coffee and lovely ice cream pots at reasonable prices.

Staff cheerful, knowledgable and helpful. Another mum said she thought it was the first campsite where she’d had a proper holiday (time to read and chat) with kids. I’d agree!

Area has a few lovely walks direct from site. We didn’t need any more.

Ross on Wye you can park/shop at Morrisons, and go to Rub a Dub laundry (Cash only but they will change coins) (£4 for a large wash 35min and tumble dry £1/10min 20-30min but you may have to wait for machines. They also do a service wash/collection. ) Then browse the high st/do a top up shop whilst you wait.

Aldi also has a small car park, but only for during your shop.

 Pitches are reasonably level, sheltered, well marked and spacious. It is a relatively small site, surrounded by mature trees so don't expect a view.

The facilities are excellent, there is a well stocked shop and some wifi near the reception area. Doward Park is easy to find, just follow the signs to the entrance barrier.

The owners are very knowledgeable about the local area and maps and advice are available from the shop, open afternoons only.

This is a great place to stay to explore the Wye Valley. Ye Olde Ferrie Inn is the closest pub, about 30 minutes walk. The Saracens Head is further and across the River, either by ferry or Biblins rope bridge.

I completed a circular walk to Monmouth and back via the Naval Temple and The Suck Stone. You don't see a lot when walking through the trees in the valley but the views from Symonds Yat and the Naval Temple are amazing. After 4 days I felt I'd seen everything within walking distance.

£24pn for two and a tent, so not cheap. Also, everything else is extra, including picnic tables for hire at £3 a night!

Reviewer: Niclyn 4 reviews from this member

 Very welcoming family run site with very clear travelling directions emailed to me prior to arrival. As the description says definitely a digital detox as the internet (free) was only available near the shop but that suited us.

The site had some lovely woodland walks surrounding it and about a miles walk down to the River Wye through the woods but well signposted by the sites owner.

Lots of walk information available on arrival and we took advantage of this walking to the River and local pubs and also to the view point at Symonds Yat.

The facilities were excellent, clean, modern and well kept.

We would definitely visit again but maybe not over the weekend unless we had the grandchildren with us as the site was very popular with young families on the Friday night we stayed- not really surprising as there was a very good children's outdoor play/ adventure area.

 Very child friendly. Quiet at this time of year with a handful of tents and units.

Very clean and well maintained. We'd stay again.

Not the cheapest site but it was well situated in a tourist area with lots to see and do locally.

Pleasant and friendly owner/staff.

 It is a lovely site. It isn't cheap (indeed, we've paid a lot less for a site with pool) but we loved it.

Facilities are immaculate and cleaned regularly. Pitches are a very good size. The hand dryers are so ferociously loud that they get turned off once it's dark.

No loud noise after 10 o'clock adhered to.

Wardens are friendly and the shop is handy for basic provisions. (I was very pleased that they sold sugar when we realised I'd forgotten to bring it. Pancake disaster swiftly averted!)

We walked down to the Wye for canoeing and for food at the pub but didn't otherwise explore.

We were towing a folding camper and the access roads would not have been fun had we met many others. On the way up the hill, we only met one car coming up the other way. On the way down, we met several but - happily - they all reversed for us.

 Just the kind of campsite we like, beautiful surrounding, peaceful, natural.

We wanted to explore Symonds Yat and the location was perfect.

The site itself was well equipped for all our needs.

Reviewer: Suzann 1 review from this member

 A really lovely well organised campsite. Small, friendly, nestled in the hills, and very peaceful.

Facilities were super clean.

Just two things could be improved - the shop could be open a little longer and the Wi-Fi could have more adequate coverage.

There is so much to see in the surrounding area and internet is pretty important for finding out about places of interest, the many walking trails, and canoeing on the Wye.

Reviewer: Christ 1 review from this member

 Lovely small family site. A peaceful location. Nothing but birdsong' lulling you to sleep & dawn chorus.

Walked through the woods to Symonds Yat' enjoying the drifts of bluebells.

It is a little hilly on way back. So a couple of little stops on the way. It didn't deter us from cycling down on the hard track down & cycling to Monmouth on cycle path.

There's a lovely 'woodland play

Area' for children on site. Campsite showers etc. Kept spotless at all times

 Beautiful well maintained site! The walks around the site are wonderful, though plenty of steep paths. The River Wye is beautiful. With great pubs only two miles from the site.

WiFi? As one would expect from a site so deep in the countryside. It is only just useable, with a 3g signal available only at the top of the site. So - Take a break from the internet and immerse yourselves into the lovely forest.

Staff are knowledgable and helpful, so. Ask!
