 I thought this a lovely site. Very friendly and helpful owner - well maintained, flat terrain - very dog friendly. Tariff friendly to the solo traveller. A great base for kayaking, and lovely clean river water to wild swim in, but a strong current.

No list of DOs and DO NOTs in red print. Yes the toilets are portaloos, but they were attended to daily. For me the users were the problem - putting some toilet roll in the pan beforehand saves a very unpleasant experience for the next user.

Glad to see they didn't have disgusting toilet brushes in there and grateful for the ladies only cubicles. My complaint would be that the doors snap back and bang, unless you close them mindfully (which most did not), this can grate after a while if you're camped nearby. My dog cowered everytime as though it were a gunshot. A rubber bung ideally located would surely help, or adjustment to the door hinge.

I found the general ambience to be quite communal, and whilst it was noisy, it was just people all enjoying themselves which was nice to be amongst - and they did respect the time curfew.

I will certainly be returning - thank you for a good stay Tresseck :)

 Just had the most perfect weekend at Tresseck for our annual class camp.

The location is stunning - right on the river with easy access for wild swimming and kayaking.

Everyone had such a fun time, thank-you!

 Just got back from Tressek. We stayed three nights in a tent: my wife two kids, and I. This cost us 19. 50 p/n. The sight was pretty much as expected: basic: portaloos and a tap only and campfires allowed! It is very much sold on being a quiet site: absolutely no music or loud noise allowed, as the signs stated. We were happy with this and found it very refreshing.

On our second night though there was a group of lads opposite us, maybe on a stag trip who played music unchallenged by the owners and had their hubbly bubbly pipe out on show which I presume was only used for tabacco: they woke me up at 12. 50AM as well as 6. 50. *I'm not a fussy old man, but it is worth remembering that depending on the guests your experience may be very different and the owners may not enforce the rules/run a tight site.

It was generally populated by rowers and families rather than groups of lads/large family parties. The site is clean, the views back towards the village are beautiful. The portaloos got a bit nasty by day 3, but always had paper in them.

It is worth noting that although you are on the river bank, you cannot see the water and are set back a little. You can buy fire wood from the owners when they come round every night and there are loads of allocated fire areas. *Do not expect to be able to forage for fire wood as there is no opportunity to do so.

The village us beautiful with a fantastic Victorian Italian style church and amazing views and countryside. The local pub has a shop built in. We popped in for a drink which was nice, but food starts at 13 and averages 15 a meal, so not for us this time. Overall I loved it. Will go again, happily.

 Just back from a night here and were a little disappointed. Great location but noisy and the facilities were very basic given the price.

We knew it was a basic campsite before we went, but the toilets weren't kept clean which was disappointing. Our biggest issue was the noise- we were kept up half the night by large groups shouting and swearing into the early hours.

The campsite is advertised as being a quiet one so we felt the owners should have enforced that, but instead they vanished come 6pm! The location was great for kayaking though so that's a plus point!

 I have been to this site before and it has been pretty empty and we have even had the small separate field, so it feels even more secluded! Unfortunately this time we were there on a bank holiday so it was very busy, plus the small field had been reserved (which I wasn't aware people could do, or we would have!)

The area is beautiful, it is right on the river bank, with a pebbly entrance to the river, ideal for canoe and perfect for paddling, swimming and catching things in nets! The little village is pretty, the church is well worth a walk upto. There is a pub just up from the site, it smelt lovely in there! They have a small, basic shop attached that was open the same hours as the pub, so easy to stock up on milk, bread, playing cards or even get your bacon for the morning. The pub also sold fire wood as well as the lady from the campsite having some when she came to collect money.

I felt like the site was more aimed at people passing in their canoes, it was very basic (4 portaloo's in our field) and they smelt pretty bad by the end (although always stocked with toilet roll and soap) the owner came to collect money and that was all we saw of her, so even when people were loud at night and playing music nothing was done about it. This wouldn't be such an issue if we hadn't ended up paying quite a lot to camp as all children had to be paid for, even the toddlers. It was also quite impersonal and the owner woke some campers next to us at 8am on a Sunday declaring they had to pay then, not the attitude you expect in such a relaxed environment.

I wouldn't stop again unless as part of a canoeing trip, it is a shame because it is so beautiful and secluded it is just what some campers want, and with a little bit more effort and a few simple touches it would be lovely.

 This campsite did exactly what the website showed. Basic, but kept clean. It has fresh water, portaloo's and a field to camp in. The portaloo's did get a bit smelly towards the end of the week (they are cleaned regularly, but only emptied once a week).

The site was beautiful, right on the banks of the Wye river, with the Hoarwithy church in the background.

You could access the gravel 'beach' edge of the river and paddle and swim in the river.

A lovely pub across the field from the campsite, some lovely walks nearby and easy striking distance from Ross on Wye and the Dean Forest.

We didn't have any problems with noise (as some people leaving reviews have mentioned), a lot of people camping here are for 1 night only as they canoe down the river, rather than family's camping for a period of time. But the owner does only collect money and does not monitor the site or visit after 5pm

 A lovely site on the edge of the river.

Plenty of places to have an open fire which was lovely. Wood for sale by owner or bring your own.

Lots of grass, plenty of space, lovely village & a nice pub.

Facilities were basic, but absolutely fine. Portaloos (OK, cleaned twice daily by owners), no showers/hot water (as advertised), plenty of fresh water points.

Fees were as advertised on their site - about 5 per adult, 3 child & 2 car. Pretty reasonable.

Beautiful river for swimming and canoeing, you can camp far enough from the river not to have to worry about young children too much.

Lots of outdoor activities in the local area.

Sadly, the 'rules' of the site were not adhered to by many of the users, late night & early morning noise (shouting & swearing) made it an unpleasant environment for the kids. The owners did not visit to check things after 5pm which was a shame or this could have been prevented. Overall a lovely site, but disappointing as it was not quite the peaceful family site that we had hoped for.

 Just spent 3 days at the site and it was the perfect get away, we booked from the Sunday evening onwards to avoid the weekend rush which paid off. Amazing setting right by the river, good fishing, very good priced canoeing and most importantly for me fires were allowed, now that's camping !

Site owner was very friendly and delivered fire wood to your tent and the pub which was very close proved very convenient. Will definitely be going back !

 Very basic site down a track by the pub. Very quiet and pitch where you like by the river. Lady came round in the mornings and evenings to collect the fee (2 adults, 2 tents and a car = 18 for 2 nights) The ground was excellent, a veritable carpet of grass.
A lot of canoeists use this site and when we were there, there were a fair few children running about. Lots of signs around asking to keep the noise down and not to pick up fallen wood but wood is sold if needed. Lots of fire pits and also picnic tables dotted about. I would definitely visit this site again.

 A lovely basic site, a real camping experience. No caravans or motorhomes are allowed. The facilities are a few taps and six portaloos. No showers - but we went to the swimming pool in Ross on Wye to freshen up!
You pitch where you like when you arrive and the site owner comes round in their car to collect the money and offer logs for sale if you want a fire. There is so much space for the kids to run around in and its all flat.
We pitched next to the river and there was a fence to stop the kids getting too close to the river. It is a beautiful spot, dogs are welcome and were often running free. The pub is lovely and very welcoming with a sign outside saying 'Children, dogs and muddy boots welcome' which is a refreshing change! The food and beer are all local and very good.
The only downside for me was that there is a music ban as the site may be closed if its too noisy, but some campers did not respect this which annoyed me. There are no set pitches so you can set up where you like, and big tents are accepted (although I was a bit self conscious as most other people had little two man tents!). We will definitely go back.
