Reviewer: Mario snr 5 reviews from this member

A very nice site with lots of nice touches, mainly seasonal pitches BUT beware the entrance is very tight and narrow if you have a large caravan then give this one a miss the owner has placed bollards on road way into the site and I caught the last bollard with rear of caravan on the swing into the site also the conifers at the entrance to the site need cutting back as have got several surface scratches on the offside of caravan as trying to negotiate bend at top of driveway

On leaving the site had to unhook my caravan at main entrance into the site to manoeuvre it into a position to get me level onto the drive to avoid the bollards on the way back out and my wife had to guide me along length of drive

I had booked to return overnight a week later but have cancelled as to much hassle to try and get back in

The owner very nice and helpful and refunded my monies for my return trip.

I have advised the owner that she does need to put a length and width limit on her website, to save damage to people's caravans.

What a lovely friendly and quiet site. Beautiful views and great facilities not to mention clean. We will be returning very soon as we really thought this site was a great hidden treasure. Grounds are kept well and nothing is too much trouble from the owners. Also led the way. There is no check in or check out time. A lovely site highly recommend.

Disappointing. One shower and two toilets for the ladies and similar for the gents is unacceptable. Considering the site was only half full queueing at 8 am. If it were at capacity it could be a nightmare. The towels were of the terry towelling type. Wet most of the time even though they were folded regularly to give a tidy appearance. Very unhygienic. No hair dryer in the toilet block. This was found in the kitchen. Completely unacceptable in a food preparation area. Sanitary products were laid out in the ladies but unpackaged. Open to handling and dust. Nice thought but not hygienic. The grass and hedges were well cut but all in all the website is misleading and the site is tired, overpriced and in need of an upgrade.

Nice, quiet site. Well laid out and rural. Toilet block very clean with some nice touches. Showers excellent. Gail the owner pleasant and helpful. First of three nights very peaceful, however tents pitched far too close to us on second day which was a pity, but all in all liked this site.

We stayed for one night at this pleasantly situated site just outside Newent. In the adults only area, the field was well set out and the grass well mowed. The view from some pitches is lovely.

The owner was very pleasant and the facilities all seemed fine although one shower for each gender isn't enough. More are needed or even some privacy cubicles.

We were a bit surprised at the amount of road noise, given that the adjacent lane seemed very rural. Possibly the sound carried from the main road nearby or it was louder as our pitch was next to the lane.

This site is well situated for either a quick stop off or as a base for touring, if you have a car. It was a little far out for us with no shops or pubs in easy walking distance and we thought a tad expensive for the facilities so I doubt we will return. It was a nice site though and I would recommend if you are in the area.

Like other reviews I can see why this site is the perfect stop over on a long journey. Don't misunderstand that statement because this site is fantastic but perhaps just a little caught between the Cotswolds and the forest of dean. So many footpaths nearby but many overgrown and underused, people obviously stick to the more obvious walking attractions west and east. Newest itself is easy walking distance and has everything you need if a little tired looking, great butcher/deli though. Site itself is lovely and really homely. Would definitely recommend and value for money too.

We visited the site for a long weekend, on arrival we were greeted by the owner who was very helpful and pointed us in the direction of our pitch.

The pitch was level and well maintained and hedgerows give welcome protection should the wind pick up.

The toilet and shower block were lovely and clean with plentiful hot water, and the large shower tray was great, nice touches with hand towels and soap at the sinks.

Great location and great site to explore the Forest of Dean and further into the Brecon Beacons.

This site is on our list that we will visit again

Also we had two of our dogs with us and we're made to feel really welcome.

Thanks for a great weekend

Booked here last minute after leaving an unsatisfactory site, a really nice welcome everything was explained we were given our pitch number in the adult only field.


Shower and toilet block clean and some lovely little touches proper towels and good quality hand wash and hand lotions. Problem being only 2 toilets and 1 shower in both ladies and gents this became a problem for my husband, there were 4 people in front of him to shower and remember this is June and a weekday in August it must be a nightmare he used the family bathroom with 1 toilet and 1 shower. He said the water was hot and there was plenty of it.

Rubbish areas: there are 2 with crude recycling bins.

We walked into Newent along the country lane, no footpaths and it's was about a 30 min walk each way.

No shops are pubs etc nearer.

Would we go back I don't think we would.

Reviewer: Absinthe_boy 16 reviews from this member

This is a beautiful, small, quiet site. Beginning with the few negatives, pitches aren't as big as some other sites and there is only one shower per gender. However the shower is lovely with great pressure, a push-button that lasts a good 20 seconds each press, nice temperature etc. The amenities block is laid out rather like a house, in that the bathrooms are not dissimilar to what you might have at home and there's also a kitchen with microwave, mini oven, kettle, coffee maker, washing machine, sink, iron etc.

A lovely feature of this site is that there's no set check in or check out time. So you can arrive or leave at your leisure. We were even encouraged to stay around on our day of departure. We stayed with a group of friends using four pitches in total on the family field. This is mostly flat, the grass is kept immaculately and nobody will be far from the toilets because it's not a large field. The field is lined by high hedges which keep the worst of the wind out. Fire baskets are available with wood also for sale for those nice camping evenings.

There's a little 'honesty box' with locally grown eggs which are superb. And also a charity box in the bathroom with a few snacks. The co-op at Newent isn't far away with Gloucester and Tewkesbury reasonably drives away for supplies or a day out.

Site staff are very friendly, the site is very child-friendly though without any specific facilities for play. However there's lots of grassy space to run around, play games etc.

It is worth noting that the site has recycling facilities for glass, card, plastic bottles & tin cans.

So this isn't a huge site with leisure facilities but it is a lovely place to spend a night or two if you're in the area or to spend longer if you're camping with friends or want to explore the area. Thoroughly recommended.

Just to confirm everything that is said below - beautifully maintained site with immaculate toilets and shower - although there was only one of each we never had to wait but the site was not particularly busy so this may be a problem when full.

Newent is a nice little town with a nice selection of pubs, restaurants and shops - good ales in the George but average food and very good ales in Cobblers micropub but watch out for the limited opening hours - walking in town is fine along the public footpath.

We will go again.
