 David, Mandy & the team were Excellent, Only £25 / night with 10A EHU (although that is due to rise) Beer was good too.

If there were to be a complaint, It's just the enormous food Portions, which precluded us trying the Deserts.

Booked for 4 Nights But extended, there was so much to see locally.

We did a boat Trip on the Wye, Steam train ride, Lydney Harbour, Lttledean jail, Dean Visitors Centre.

Toilets were basic, but clean.

Grass regularly Mown, site quiet & well drained.

Pitches well spaced too. TV, 4G & Phone (EE) signals Good.

Pub Closes at 19:00 Sunday, Re-opens Weds.

 My third visit to this site.

Lovely secluded site tucked behind the pub.

I would always stay here if staying in this area.

You are just a short drive from Chepstow and Tintern Abbey.

 We had an enjoyable 2 nights at the Black Smith Arms. The camp site was friendly, clean, quiet, flat and perfect!

Basic amenities but very clean and did the job. Close to services as well. Prices were very good

The pub was a great addition, with good food, very reasonably priced beer, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.

We will defo come back soon and hopefully this time there will be sunshine too! (As a bonus!)

 Very friendly people EHU and flatish spots wouldn't stay for a holiday but as a stopover its handy.

No views or anything. Like a pub carpark

The Pub serves food which is handy although a bit expensive after paying £20 to park for the night.

 Entrance was a bit narrow, in fact missed it, but it was easier coming from the Lydney direction.

The site was very basic, one toilet and one shower per sex, however were reasonably clean.

That really was all there was on site, apart from the drinking water, toilet and flush obviously.

The pub however served the most scrumptious Sunday Lunch, worth going back just for that

 Lovely peaceful site at the rear of a welcoming pub.

The facilities are kept spotlessly clean and the field is lovely and green.

This was my second visit and I would definitely return.

 First time at this site as this is one of the few parts of the country that I hadnít visited before. They are doing a good job of keeping it Covid-secure, toilets are kept very clean.

The site is tucked behind the pub and is lovely and quiet. You get a friendly welcome and the food in the pub is excellent.

I would definitely stay here again if I was coming to the region. I agree with the poster who wished that the water tap was in a separate area to the toilet disposal but I always boil any water when Iím away from home, so this is a minor consideration.

 Very welcome small site and basic but nice and quiet.

Stayed there for the weekend pity the weather was Rotten.

The food in the pub was nice and you're allowed to take dogs in as well as long as they behave
