 Lovely small campsite, there's only 30 pitches so it didn't feel crowded. As a family with young children it was fantastic to have an open safe space for them to play in - the rope swing over the river was great fun.

The facilities were kept nice and clean. There are only 2 showers and 2 toilets in the men's and women's but this wasn't a problem and only had to wait a couple of times during the week

Lots of lovely walks nearby and fun to be had on the river. We'll definitely return.

 Itís just a very nice, clean and friendly campsite.

Been here 5 years in a row, perfect location for enjoying the Wye river.

Hope to camp again in a few weeks time.

 Lovely site, plenty of room and large pitches. Site is on a slope which flattens out for camping.

Toilet block is at the top of slope, very well equipped with two toilets and two showers in the ladies and in the menís + sinks. Showers were brilliant lovely hot water. Well equipped hut for washing up.

Lots to see and do nearby and the A40 gets you there fast, but there is noise from the road to Hereford which runs right by the site.

Karen, one of the site owners, was lovely and very helpful. Owners are Star Wars nuts, their 2 site chickens were Hen Solo and Princess Layer and they have a life size storm trooper!

 Oh man, am I a mature couple now? :-o

Anyway, dropped the kids off with family and spent a night trying out Elmsdale Campsite in our new van.

Very friendly owner who is very happy to describe various walks and places to paddle board from.

Nice walk from site to Kerne bridge, couple of good pubs within easy walking distance.

Owners walked around the site at 22:30 asking for music to be turned off and checking everyone was OK (and at the same time gave us our credit card back which someone had handed in)!

We were there on a busy weekend with hot weather but the limits they impose on the site means it's one of those sites that have people camping all around the edge of the field leaving all of the middle of the field free for kids to run around in, pitches are big and it never felt too busy in any way.

Stream\brook runs through the site and there is a rope swing that he kids play on, will check this out more next next time when we come back with the our children.

Nice clean toilets\showers and washing up room on site.

No open fires allowed, they do hire out chimneas but it cost £16 for the chimnea and one nights supply of wood which I thought was quite a expensive.

No shop on site, not sure if there is one within walking distance or not, we didn't come across one.

Not sure what else to say, we'll be back that's for sure.

Oh slight road noise but this would have to be something that really bothers you to put you off, it's not that bad and you can always ask for a pitch on the other side of the field if it bothers you.

Our kids where allowed to play on there bikes play football cricket etc with no issues or complaints

This site is in close proximity to many nice pubs

The red lion was one of our favourites and also activities for the family ie canoeing, clearwell caves.

I will definitely be coming back and highly recommend it

 We phoned to enquire and the lady was very helpful on the phone and told us to just turn up and that all three of us could be together.

The site is easy to find and not far from the main A40. We arrived and we met by a large open field with a small river running around the edge and surrounded by trees. The site was very flat. There are hookups around the edge. There was not a kids play area that I saw, however they don't need one, there is plenty of space for them to play

The site owner was very friendly and told us about local places to visit, local walks, etc. We pitched in the bottom corner and there was no issue with midgies or anything even with the river.

The facilities block is at the top of the field and in the mens were two sinks, two showers and two toilets. These were kept spotless and had auto lights on and were warm on the cold evenings. I believe it was the same set up in the ladies.

There are plenty of walks nearby and you can walk for miles. On one day we walked into Goodrich and up to the castle and then back, via the Cross Keys pub in the village. I must give the pub a mention, it was nice in there and the staff were very friendly and the food was amazing. If staying at this site I would definitely suggest giving it a visit.

There is loads to do in the area with Symonds Yat within walking distance or just a few minutes drive. The scenery is stunning and the walk along the River Wye is lovely, flat and peaceful.

We paid £13 for the night for the campervan, one adult and one dog. At this price it is an absolute bargain and I would definitely stay there again.

 Had a great stay here in late September, midweek, for four nights. Extremely friendly and helpful on arrival - we were three campervans together and she said we could pitch whereever we liked, and showed us the spot with most sunshine throughout the day. Large open field with a lovely stream / brook running around the outside.

It's a extremely well kept site, and very easy on the eye. Great facilities, which were immaculately clean and tidy. Showers were powerful, and just the right temperature. Plenty of hooks in the shower and toilet doors - thank you site owner! There is a separate building housing washing up sinks, and a freezer and fridge. No particular facilities on site for children, but the field is large for playing in, and the stream probably like a magnet for kids, so I am sure they would have loads of fun!

We used the site as a base for the surrounding attractions, in particular Symonds Yat. The big attraction for us were the offroad walking opportunities direct from the site. Along one side of the site is a bridle path, which in turn leads to a network of footpaths. You can walk direct from site to Goodrich Castle (and village), and Symonds Yat, and miles and miles along the River Wye, hardly seeing a road.

Up the bridle path and along a very quiet country track (I guess about a 15 minute walk - a little hilly and possibly muddy in winter) is a great pub called the Cross Keys, on the edge of Goodrich village, which is well worth a visit. Great food, welcoming and helpful staff, and very dog friendly too.

All in all, a great site, which I look forward to returning to one day, to do more walking along the beautiful River Wye.
