 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!

 A beautiful peaceful site which was well run, clean and provided everything that you needed. Located about a mile up a single track road you reach the site set in woodland near the top of the hill. Had no problem getting my motor home there.

The only downside we found, and this is being REALLY picky, was that the phone signal was 0 on the lower level. There is free wifi but as my wife needed an uninterrupted signal for an important video conference we had to drop down to the village each day. ( I read my book ))) )

We will definitely visit again soon.

 Very small compact, tidy site. Approach road horrendous for our motorhome and trailer. Met a few local cars and tractors who are not keen on reversing back Site was empty for the few days we were there.

Pitches very tight and small, site would be very cramped if all pitches were taken. Trees and logs laid in front of pitches makes it hard to manoeuvre our unit onto pitch.

Not really motorhome friendly, more suited for tents. No dog walk on site but access road not safe to walk along. Not much interaction with owners all correspondence done by email.

You cannot arrive until after 2. 30 and have to vacate by 10. 30 so cuts the holiday short.

Owner wasn't very friendly when we arrived didn't even talk about the site for bins, water etc. Not very welcoming. For that reason we will not be back.

 We had visited this area before but not this site. I choose the site because it was a smaller site and was less expensive than many although I thought £4 extra for electricity was a bit steep, not helped by the fact our charger packed up so we couldn't use the heating at all (no fault of the site).

The facilities were fine with lovely hot water. There were a good variety of walks straight from the site that we really enjoyed and staff were really helpful with showing you on the map as well as giving you a copy of the walk to King Arthur's cave.

However, I wish the map was visible from outside the shop/office/café the hours of which didn't coincide with our plans often. There was a quick e mail response to query about directions to site.

Because they suggest not following Sat Nav, I checked thoroughly and our Sat Nav wanted to take us down a road with a 2m width limit despite having put MH dimensions in.

The last leg of the journey is along a single track road with passing places so good that we didn't need to use it apart from arriving and departing.

Beautifully quiet eco friendly site to enjoy nature, listen to the birds, owls at night, gaze at stars.

 Was a very lovely clean and welcoming place. Staff were very lovely and helpful.

Would highly recommend this campsite to all my friends.

Will definitely be returning. Kids really enjoyed themselves.

Was child friendly.

 Peaceful wooded campsite yet close to Monmouth and Ross on Wye- only a short drive away.

Well maintained by a young couple who only took it over about a year ago. Small shop on site selling ice creams and very very basic requirements.

Lots of walks directly from the site although mostly hilly. Clean showers and toilets. Hard standing pitches - reasonable size. Dogs allowed on leads.

Great little play area for children with rope swings in a wooded area.

Couple are improving the site and were in the process of installing a coffee machine at the small reception area.

Picnic benches available to hire and some to sit on outside reception. Will definitely use again

 Stayed here for two nights as a base to explore the Wye Valley and it was perfect. Clean and tidy toilet and shower block, very well kept pitches and lovely forest surrounds. Handy little on site shop and maps available for walkers.

The only downside was not being able to have a campfire, but that is the trade off for being surrounded by woodland so understandable.

 We spent 3 nights here en route to family further south, having wanted to visit this area for ages. The site was excellent, adequate, clean facilities, big pitches and in the middle of a forest. We had some lovely walks down to the river, with a family of deer crossing our path at one point. The owner is friendly and efficient, providing maps of the area so you can easily find your way on foot through the myriad tracks to the nearest pub. It's close to the main road as the crow flies but we didn't notice the hum of traffic much. Thoroughly recommend, especially for families as there is a wild playground as well as safe spaces to play, cars being confined to a carpark area.

 Ignore the sat nav and you will find yourself in a real beauty spot high up in the forest with fantastic walks straight from the site. Walking maps available from reception though you do need to prompt the lady in the office for any information. Obviously you don't get all that nature and peace without being a fair way from any grocery shops, so motorhome owners should stock up beforehand. It was very wet when we stayed but the hardstandings coped well. The showers and loos are a bit dark, cold and basic and being only 2 showers for each male and female could be a challenge in busy season. Brochure not worded in a very welcoming manner and we did find it expensive for April.
