 Lovely site. Lots to explore in the local area including some beautiful walks. Slightly smaller site but large enough pitches. We had electric hook up. Water was close by.

Well maintained and clean bathroom facilities. Recycling and bbq disposal on site. Only 2+2 showers but never had to queue and always got hot water.

Small shop on site with all the necessary basic supplies plus ice cream and some gift items. Great adventure play ground in the woods at the site.

WiFi is limited to the few meters around the shop but sometimes thatís a good thing with teenagers! You can walk to the hill fort, local caves and view point or down and along the river to Simmonds Yat.

Bikes are well worth it for a cycle route along the river. Camp site is on the hill but only about 1km down a dirt track or paths to the river. Lidl is only 10 minutes in the car to Monmouth (lovely town to visit).

Camp site close enough to a40 to make excursions very easy in the car. We went as far as tintern Abbey.

You can also book kayaking, rock climbing etc in the area. Recommended.

 Lovely dog friendly site, well kept with beautifully clean facilities. Lovely walks nearby too.

Owners were friendly and very welcoming and a bonus visit from the ice cream van on Saturday afternoon made the kids day!

A bit pricey for a non hook up pitch (£38 per night for four of us + dog) and you have to pay extra for showers - 50p per token but they were nice and hot - donít know if itís because of the current times or always that way.

Would definitely recommend though.

 A wonderful clean campsite with great facilities. The facilities are all in one place and are spotlessly clean. The showers are 50p for a token but they are spacious, warm and powerful. I found the owners to be friendly and very accommodating. There are also breakfast baps which can be ordered the day before. The village of Alvington is just a short walk or drive away and there are two pubs nearby (The Globe Inn, has a lovely beer garden).

Reviewer: Cguenier 2 reviews from this member

 Sadly, Very disappointing! We often had to queue for the communal toilet, as only 2 for the whole site. Despite quite high cost per pitch you had pay for the small showers and the site was quite sloped - meaning that all campers clung to the flat bits!

Owners were also really rude and swearing in front of young children.

On the plus side - the site is in a pretty area, with a pleasant walk around the lake.

 I could plainly see why this camp site has such high reviews. Has to be one of my favourite sites I have stayed at.

Site was very well kept, there weren't that many people using the site while we were there so it was nice and quiet. No separate toilet/shower block for men and women but was always nice and clean.

We had a pitch with hook up so it was nice and flat, the field does slope down towards the bottom where others were camped.

Just beyond the camping area was a lovely lake which was well worth a wander around. The rural surroundings were very pretty.

Shops and garage are nearby and a pub within walking distance.

 This is a great site it is set by a lovely lake with spectacular views of the local landscape. The Forest of Dean offers plenty of activities and places to visit. The campsite itself has a large field area for camping and caravanning. The shower block is kept to a very high standard there are washing up facilities too. Excellent campsite for children as there is plenty of room for ball games etc. The campsite owners are very friendly and helpful. We have been visiting the site for over seven years now and come back time after time!

 What a Fab site, how we havenít stayed here before is a mystery to us. We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Bean farm and we all had a ball. The site is very functional very well maintained and is blessed with great views of the country side and fishing lake. The owners were eager to please and extremely friendly. We love the fire pits / braziers and the fact that camp fires are encouraged is a great attribute, the kids loved the marshmallows! We stayed over Easter and Easter morning we awoke to a very pleasant surprise the Easter bunny had been leaving a well presented bundle of Easter treats ! a lovely touch and my two boys were thrilled to bits great effort. Bravo

We had a touring van and our pitch (2) was very generous and spacious, plenty of room for van awning, truck and garden with meters to spare either side before next pitch started. Facilities were ample and cleaned regularly never had to wait for a shower, or wc. They are unisex though. Stuart and Teresa were great hosts and we the Webbers will return. You come highly recommended

 This site is in a beautiful setting with only 2 rural lanes passing it so it is very quiet.

There are a few electric hook ups at the top of the site, the middle is left clear to allow space for children to play. Apart from the top few pitches the rest of the site is sloping - think carefully before you pitch! The grass is in good condition and soil is pretty stone free.

We really enjoyed being able to rent a brazier and relax around an open fire in the evenings. The charge of £5 a night which included a bag of wood was very reasonable.

The site was quite full on the Bank Holiday weekend that we visited which resulted in a few queues for the 2 toilets, 3 showers and 2 wash hand basins. Tokens costing 50p need to be bought from reception for the showers and hair dryer. This gives 3 minutes of warm, powerful shower water. The washing up area has 2 sinks, but the water pressure is extremely poor and we ended up boiling water at the tent instead. While the toilet block is adequate, it was spoilt by a strong smell of drains which was present for the duration of our stay. I have tried to find out if this is unusual but have not received a reply from the owners. It was extremely unpleasant and would stop us from visiting again if we knew that this was not unusual.

 We have just returned from a week at Beanhill Farm. We're a family of five - two adults, three children aged 12, 10 and 9 and were with another family. This is our 6th year of camping.

I can honestly say that Beanhill ticks all the boxes for my ideal campsite. It's a large field with ample space for children to play cricket or fly kites in the centre where we can keep an eye on them. The facilities were always clean and although I was a bit concerned about them being unisex it was never an issue. One thing that isn't clear on their website is that the showers cost 50p but it is token rather than coin operated - so remember to buy tokens before reception closes! It's also rare to find a campsite that allows braziers (rented from the campsite) and EHU.

We had EHU so were at the top of the field in a marked pitch. The pitches are generous - we have a Royal Pescara which is a huge tent and it fitted on perfectly. With the EHU we had our own tap, I'm not sure where the non-EHU campers got their water from.

There is plenty to do in the area, we spent a day at Puzzlewood, took a steam train on the Forest of Dean heritage line and walked for miles in the forest. We also spent a day at Cinderford hospital as my son broke his collarbone on the first day - not part of the usual tourist trail but the staff there were lovely. The campsite is close to Lydney with both a large Co-op and a Tesco for shopping.

My only really, really tiny niggle is that the washing up sink isn't well lit - there is a light near to it but not close enough, and there isn't anywhere to hang a lantern. Otherwise, I can't fault it. We will return next summer to do everything we missed this year.
