Major levelling blocks required due to the steep slope of pitch 5,one 2in block supplied ,we used our own 8ins ramps but still we weren’t level,water would not run out of sink or shower, so we used your facilities which were very good, otherwise we enjoyed our stay .

Highly recommend this campsite, the location is beautiful with views over the valley and right next to the forest. The facilities are spotless and the provisions for social distancing at this time were well organised, with plenty of hand sanitizer and instructions. Online booking was straight forward and check in very simple with a list of names and pitch numbers on the notice board. Thanks for a safe and peaceful stay!

Tips:

We visited the Miners Arms which is about 20 mins walk but they don’t do food on a Monday. Heard from other campers that one of the pubs in Yorkley doesn’t serve food at all. Advise to check/book if you want to eat out!

Lovely 2 night stay. With the current situation (COVID-19) we were a little apprehensive about using toilet/shower block but it was very clean, not crowded and well placed hand sanitizers. Very peaceful location, quiet but friendly site - we may be converted to adult only sites ! Good price too and great there’s no charge for awnings which I find annoying. Would highly recommend staying at Deanwood

Tips:

Only had one full day but managed a Wye Valley walk, visit to Tintern and quick stop for the view at Symonds Yat Rock.

A very nice caravan park, the toilet and shower block were very clean although we didn't use them, because of Covid we decided to be self contained and used our own. Couldn't give 5 stars for service/staff because we never dealt with any all the time we were there. Stayed on pitch 26 witch was fairly level and had wonderful views across the forest. The 2 pubs in the village were both very friendly to both us, and the dog! The Nags Head does very good food, although basic.

Excellent base for walking in the forest.

A beautiful situated site with wonderful views. Easy to book and clear instructions on admission . Sad not to see the site managers / wardens as all the other sites that we have visited post lockdown the wardens were clearly visible every few hours wiping down water points door handles etc etc . Good value for money . Excellent services for Motorhome ie, drive over waste , Elsa point

Tips:

Quiet and peaceful site. We did get a strong smell of sewage if the wind was in a certain direction. A nice stroll into the village to local shop . There is also a wooded walk from the site but a bit too long for us oldies !! Well worth staying at this site . I would recommend a grass pitch

The whole site is immaculate. The caravan pitches over looking the valley are the better pitches. We pitched front end on so could enjoy the fantastic view. The toilet /shower facilities excellent, I don’t know if they are new but they certainly look new. The location to the forest couldn’t be better. Finally the dog walk /field is large where the dogs can run off lead. Picnic bench there to sit throw a ball enjoy the views with a morning coffee.

Tips:

Mallards pike lake: dogs can be off lead there. Only Car park charges apply. The sculpture trail is ok ! Probably good with children! Dogs had to be on lead. Once again carpark fees only. There are plenty of places where you could park up and go for a walk through the forest.

Our fourth trip to the site in a couple of years. Great position for exploring the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley. We walk, so the Wye Valley Walk and the Offa's Dyke paths are amongst our favourites. Go to the Lancourt Nature Reserve if you visit and you might be lucky and see the Perigrines. This region is special. Pay a visit.

Although some restrictions due to eased lockdown rules there was no adverse effect on our stay. I have not stayed at an adult only site before and is certainly much more pleasant for school holiday camping. Was great to have WiFi access on site but not in the tent. Made me have a break from constant Covid updates but still be able to stay in touch each day. Will definitely be visiting this site again. My new favourite.

Access to Forest of Dean direct from campsite, just through a gate 100 yds from our tent! Close to Sculpture Trail, Wye River . Gorgeous views from the site.

Built on the side of a hill, we understand how difficult it is to have level pitches. We had to change the position of our motor home on the 2nd day, due to the steep incline within, and even then the problem remained tho' not as bad. It might be a good idea to step level each pitch on the upper grass level like the conference center as motor homes don't have the same leveling facility as caravans.

Tips:

The nearest village is 1.5 miles away. As there were no brochures on display due to Covid, I have no idea about eateries near by. The forest is very nice to walk the dog and there are many tracks to use but one needs to keep a weather eye for wild bore as to see one would be interesting.

We stayed at Deanwood shortly after lockdown restrictions were lifted and were impressed by how well organised everything was. Facilities were spotless, instructions clear and they were only taking bookings at 40% capacity, so there was loads of space and everything felt very safe. Lovely, well looked after site with glorious views. No food or shop on the site, but village shop and pubs nearby. Hope to return before too long.

Tips:

Great day canoeing at Symonds Yat (with Wyedean canoeing) - beautiful scenery and wildlife. Walks at the Forest of Dean Sculpture garden and along the Severn. Taurus crafts has a wonderful cafe and quirky shops.

Absolutely beautiful campsite. Immaculately kept. Stunning views. Adult only so quiet and respectful. Allows multiple dogs. Large enclosed field for dogs to run free. (Two small gaps where wildlife has dug the ground that small dogs may be able to wiggle threw) otherwise perfect. Couldn't be closer to the forest for walks the the woods and nature trails. Lovely for the outdoor types or people who just want to chill. We didn't see the owners this time but know them to be friendly, helpful and accomadating. Covid friendly, sanitisers, etc in place. The only downside is summer is half over already this year! Absolutely stunningly beautiful campsite and throughly recommend. Can't fault it!

Tips:

We stay on site to admire the views and walk our dogs so haven't ventured out. Large Tescos in Lydney and a highstreet that you could get most of the things you may need whilst on holiday.

We had a lovely stay. Low mark for staff was because we didn’t see anyone. We appreciate social distancing but it would have been nice for a member of staff to have come round after arrival and checked we were all ok. Showers need to be a bit warmer Male cleaners- I have no problem at all with this but a knock on the door before entering would be polite. I was in the washroom about 11pm when a gentleman burst (literally) through the door went to the cupboard. You have no cubicles for washing so I could have been in my underwear having a wash and which could have been embarrassing for both parties Information about area. Would have been nice to be able to access walks in the area. An OS map on notice board perhaps?

The site is on the edge of an absolutely stunning wood. We walked for hours. Saw deer two days running in the woodland. The facilities were very clean and well stocked. Excellent Clive 19 info given before we arrived. Will definitely be visiting again.

We walked to the Nags Head in Yorkley, which was adhering to strict crib 19 rules but the staff made us very welcome.

Lydney is a favourite as the Severn is tidal almost feels as if you are by the sea. Clearwell caves worth a visit. Symonds Yat spectacular views.

1) When booking I asked for Pitch Not. 26 and 25 as we have had them previously and there is no walk through between the two caravans. I was told that 26 was already taken. It was empty for the whole week. 2) On the last day of our holiday with you we were shocked and extremely surprised that you had allowed a young all male group of 8 with a large tent and several small tents camping right in front of our caravan. They were talking and laughing until 4.30am and we had no sleep until then.

Tips:

Lovely clean site but see the above as we only had one night of no sleep but we could have had that for our whole holiday.

Owner Response:

I'm sorry that you couldn't have your first choice of pitches - Pitch 26 was booked initially but unfortunately the guests had to cancel. John spoke to the young men when he was advised that they had been talking into the night and they were much quieter / settled much earlier the second night. They were advised that this wasn't acceptable behaviour. Even though they were only talking the noise carries on such a quiet site. We won't be allowing them to book again.

Please apologise to John that we failed to return the bricks (we used to support our BBQ) back to source (when Graham realised he had left them at our pitch (14) he was annoyed with himself as had promised to return them!)

The pitches are in excellent condition with not a blade of grass out of place. The facilities are cleaned and disinfected regularly. Also there are a couple of toilet blocks and kitchens so plenty of room for everyone to socially distance. This is a perfect campsite.

With one of us first time campers and the other inexperienced we wanted somewhere where it was easy to pitch and good facilities, good information etc. Deanwood is all of the above. Great location for walking in the woods. Would definitely recommend and we will be returning. The only downside was the wind, it was a particularly windy weekend and being positioned high up (which gives the benefits of the views!) we were particularly hammered by the wind, but we know for next time.

Both of you friendly,efficient and helpful, Jhon especially when Paul needed a Dr.We are thinking of giving up motorhoming and Jhon, again very helpful in showing us their self catering cottages as we would still want to come to the site. We love that we can walk with Phoebe dog straight from the site and will be there next year, either with motorhome or in a cottage. Perfect site for us.

Tips:

Heritage railway lovely if your in to steam. The warren of walks in the forest plentiful and easily signposted. The Fountain at Parkend does brilliant carvery for sunday lunch and there is another one close (I think called White Hart) that does brilliant pub food. Both are dog friendly, even down to the biscuits on the bar. Very dog friendly area.I could go on for pages singing praises for the site and the area. Can't wait to go back.

Deanwood is the best campsite we have stayed at.They are very dog friendly and provide a huge fenced in dog exercise field which is brilliant. The grounds are kept well maintained and the facilities are spotless at all times. The staff are very friendly and approachable should you need anything. It is a lovely site and well looked after by the staff. We have been 3 years in a row now in September and will be going again next year as it is perfect for us.

Tips:

Deanwwood is a perfectly placed site in the Forest of Dean. There are loads of good areas for a walk with the dogs or just a walk if you don't have a a dog. We stayed 10 days and found a different walk every day within 10 minutes. The RSPB walk at Parkend was lovely as was Soudley Ponds, Cannop lakes, Speech House, Mallards Pike, and loads more and the same goes for shopping in nearby Lydney, Coleford (great butchers shop there and also a Deli selling cheeses, meats, pate, etc) or Cinderford for another great butchers and we had an excellent lunch at the White Heart Pub in Cinderford.

Arrived with Motorhome for prepaid and booked pitch. Due to the uneven and un-level ground, our pitch was clearly NOT suitable for a Motorhome nor Caravan. We managed to obtain wooden blocks, and more wooden blocks and even more wooden blocks together with our own ramps and to no avail. It was impossible to level our vehicle. Site owner wasn't very helpful and after over an hour of trying to level the vehicle, I asked for my money back! There were empty spaces that were suitable and in the end we were parked by Reception which wasn't the size of a full pitch. The next day we insisted on one of the hard standing pitches which was more level and moved. I was very upset at how the situation was handled by the owner. I have been motorhoming for years - I have parked in fields and showgrounds that were never as uneven as some of the pitches on this site. (This site advertises spacious level ground and hard standing pitches) It wasn't cheap either.

Tips:

Nice Pub, good food, reasonably priced, but need a car to get there. (Bit too far to walk in the heat)

Owner Response:

I am sorry that you weren't happy with how your complaint was dealt with. The pitch that you booked (Pitches 1 - 6) is advertised as 'slightly sloping ground' not level ground. We did our best to help you with providing blocks, and then we even phoned another guest who had booked last minute to ask if they would swop pitches with you - which they did! Amazingly, the following week when we weren't busy and Pitches 1 - 6 were all vacant we had a guest with a motorhome very similar to yours actually choose Pitch 5, the pitch you were allocated, although he could have chosen a pitch nearer Reception which would have had less of a slope. He loved the view from Pitch 5 - and he didn't have a problem levelling his van.

we found the site to be clean and peacefull and loved the woods a nd dog field but it was a very sloping site and took us some leveling with our caravan my cousin had to move from their pitch next to us as coyldnt level their motor home at all it was quite stressful as there wasnt any other pitches left but luckily a nice person swapped. I found the toilets shower bloke to be very . poor everytime I went to the toilet I had to wait for someone to finish washing or cleaning their teeth before I could wash my hands ( only 2 sinks ) and to only have one hair dryer was poor for 2 shower blocks ! I didnt bring one as I always use the one onsite but even at 3.30 in the afternoon I had 2 ladies in front of me waiting to use the dryer ,so gave up in the end. we didnt see any staff except for guy on check in and didnt know the wifi code was written on benches until day we left might of been good to mention this on arrival

I am pleased that you found our site clean and peaceful - even over a bank holiday weekend when we were fully booked! I am sorry that you and your cousin both had problems levelling your caravan and motorhome. Pitches 5 & 6 are on quite a slope, but amazingly, we had a couple in a motorhome come the week after you, when we were much quieter. They were given the choice of any pitch 1 - 6 and they chose pitch 5 because of the lovely views!! There are 2 ladies and 2 gents shower blocks with 2 sinks in each. Apologies that the wifi code wasn't pointed out to you - it was a very busy weekend and John was here, there and everywhere keeping everything running smoothly and clean.

We enjoyed our stay, location and site ideal for walks. Our pitch was large, but unfortunately not level, despite ramps which was a downside.

Tips:

Ideal campsite if you have a dog. Large off lead field for them to run around. Plenty woodland walks. Walked to Norchard to get steam train. Few basic local pubs within walking distance (15-20 mins). We ate at the nags head, which was good basic pub grub. Bailey inn local friendly pub. take a torch for walk back as no lighting along lane

A great location for a quiet relaxing stay with beautiful views. Clean toilets and showers, plenty of them too also other great facilities like washing machines and a fridge. The only gripe all be it a small one is there is no shop or place to buy maybe a loaf of bread or of the like just for convenience. Like I said a small gripe but would sometimes make for a more easier stay. Very dog friendly with great field to exercise off lead and lots of great walks what more could you want.

A super clean campsite with amazing views of the forest. Very quiet and would definitely come back there. Considering the time of the year it was lovely and peaceful too. The pub is a bout a mile walk it’s further than ½ mile Which was too far for our dog to walk as bad legs.

Tips:

There is plenty to do in the Forest of Dean and wye valley. You do need to be able to drive to most locations but there are some super walks in the forest nearby. Recommend visit Symonds year rock -amazing views Good pubs down the bottom at Symonds yat east and west great steaks at ye old ferry inn. Goodrich castle and Tintern abbey must see ruins. Puzzle wood and sculpture trail walk all good things to do. The woodman at park end good food and service. Everyone very friendly. Given the time of year surprisingly quiet with tourists which is great. Easy to find lovely walks all through the forest at no cost. Parking at main attractions seems to be £3 pretty much everywhere.

We wanted a quiet weekend away from the children and to explore the Forest of Dean, that we had never been to before. The weather was so still and warm and the campsite so wonderfully quiet with really pretty views. The facilities were spotless .. we honestly slept for 12 hours on the first night We would like to come back again for more exploring.

Walked to the Nags Head. Had a lovely homemade meal. Steam train and roast dinner in Parkend. Walk and lunch at Symonds yat. Gorgeous castle and coffee at Goodrich.

Very impressed with the facilities, cleanliness and layout of the site. Very quiet and fantastic views across the forest (particularly from the deg exercise field). Obviously a real effort has been made to make the pitches level, with much terracing taking place on what is a hillside site. Hedges on site help to provide some privacy to most pitches. We certainly hope to return.

Tips:

We only stayed for two nights, but recommend the both Chinese take-away in Lydney (Jimmy's Kitchen) and Ruddy's Fish & Chips. The wood adjacent to the site was lovely for walking the dog. The dog exercise field was a great thing to have on site, for early morning and late nigh necessities. We also visited Cannop Cycle Centre, which was fantastic: though I would recommend the Blue Route for the reasonably capable, as the Red Route is very difficult - after 20 minutes attempting Red I wouldn't even look at the black Route!

Lovely campsite to stay. We wanted a nice quiet site which it was mostly. Us and another camper had to ask one group of lads to keep the noise down. It did take us asking 2 or 3 times. Shame other campers didn't read the rules on being a quiet site. However, totally recommend this campsite. I'm sure not all campers are like that.

We were on the caravan hardstanding area which, though tending to look like a car park, was extremely suitable for us ad very convenient for kitchen and washing facilities. The only two minor downsides were that it was very hard to connect to the wifi in and just outside the van, though this could have been down to our older mobiles, and the reception area could possibly benefit from more visitor info and possibly from visitors' recommendations etc. That said, we were very happy at the site and will definitely return.

What a gem of a site in a beautiful area of the UK! And, added bonus - adult only which does help with the peaceful and calm surroundings on site. Great facilities - everything you need. Definitely recommend and we will return again!

Tips:

Stick to the sites directions avidly. It's amazing the teeny tiny roads in the area and how the satnav is attracted to them LOL! You do not want to be towing a caravan or driving a motorhome along some of the ones our satnav found (thankfully not towing!). The hard stands are exactly that - HARD! You will need rockpegs for your awning etc and a pair of pliers to get them out again. Positive is that you don't need to worry about the wind pulling your pegs out!

Incredible campsite. The facilities were outstanding; spotlessly clean with two kitchen areas, and two showering/wash places and both were maintained to a high standard. The pitches were large and so you felt like you had lots of space around you. There were two dog walking areas (aside from the forest at the edge of the park) one a field, where our dogs could run free - though be careful if you have a little escape artist dog who can scramble through small holes made by wildlife! The only thing that was a little niggle is that there is only one hairdryer and there are no electric sockets in the bathrooms with a mirror for those wishing to use their own hairdryer/curling tongs. This would have been a bonus although not essential.

Tips:

Look out for FOD rocks on your walks - this was quite fun. You find painted rocks hidden in the forest walks and they are linked to a Facebook account, you post a picture where you found them and then re-hide them. Great fun for kids and adults and some great artistry!

Tips:

Take the heritage railway and you will find a lovely pub with brilliant carvery on sundays at the Parkend stop. Beautiful area, Forest full of walks to different stops in the forest and walks (long or short) signposted well but not too commercialised. Site and welcome first class.

Superb

Tips:

If caravaning adhere to arrival and departure times. Its for your benefit. The rising Sun is well worth a visit and do not travel far for wildlife. It is in the forest ajoining the site if your quiet and take your time walking round.

This was a great site to unwind for a few days and do very little. The position gives beautiful views over the valley. There was everything we needed here and the owners had thought of all the little touches eg stool In the shower. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the grounds were very well kept Not very much to do in the surrounding area on foot as we were travelling in a motorhome but a small village shop and a very welcoming pub at the end of the lane.

Facilities were clean and modern. Pitches are generous and well kept. Adult only sites are what we look for and the views of the forest were lovely. A spacious paddock to run our dog off the lead is a rare treat that a lot of other sites sorely neglect so well done Deanwood! All this at a reasonable price is much appreciated.

Tips:

There is much to see and do in the local area so grab a brochure from the information desk at reception on arrival. Enjoy the site for its views, open spaces and direct access into the forest for walks, not to mention the sheer tranquillity and minimal light pollution which all adds up to what being out in the countryside is all about!

Fantastic site. Our second visit, and will certainly return. The only downside is the 14:00 arrival, which effectively loses you the first day, and the early checkout. Facilities excellent, views incredible and the walks brilliant. Only marked the service/staff down one point, as we didn't see anyone after check in. (That's not a negative)

Tips:

Incredible walking from the site even after 40 years of visiting the Dean, we found new walks every day. 2 pubs within easy walking, and a good shop/post office in the village. Tip: once you arrive, leave the car where it is. Ours never moved until we packed up and went home. Visit the Norchard Railway museum. Walk to the Fountain Inn in Parkend. You can eat your own food in their picnic area.

To say the site is impressive is an understatement. The site is everything we wanted and due to the dates and possibly the pour weather we had it pretty much to ourselves. The dog field is a huge bonus as well as access to some fantastic walks straight from the site. My ONLY problem was the showers (nearest the house). The shower head is very high (I'm only 5'2") so the water is more of a spray when it gets to me so takes a while to wash soap out of long hair. The lights are triggered by a motion sensor so, as I took a while, and no other campers entered, the lights went out AND the hot water went off. I can only leave it to the imagination of how I triggered the motion sensor to turn it all back on hahaha

Tips:

Lovely walk, approx 45mins, to Mallards Pike (beautiful lake and cafe).

We booked 6 months before and mentioned we had a 8m Motorhome yet were on a pitch with less space and view than two small campervans who said they didn’t specifically request a pitch and booked more recently. We were with friends so shared space between us but had we been on our own our space would have been very tight with little privacy. There was a lot of maintenance going on at the site which was good but was quite disruptive at times eg pressure washers and tractors feet away from us quite early in the morning over a bank holiday weekend. Now we’ve been we would be careful to request specific pitches as some pitches would be either inappropriate or not as nice as others. Also check in is 2pm and departure is 11. We were told it’s because of traffic down the narrow lane but were also told we could check in earlier if we paid £6! If you need to keep the lane clear £6 doesn’t change the traffic issue. 3 hours between departure and arrival seems too wide a time period. I think a 1pm check in without charge would be more appropriate.

Tips:

Lovely walks from the site. Nice views from some pitches but some looking at a huge green metal barn are not as nice. Local pubs are basic but Nags Head are welcoming and serves good value food.

Deanswood is an absolutely amazing place to stay, we stay as often as we can! It is always immaculate, the grounds, kitchen area and toilets are so well kept. The owners obviously take a lot of pride in their site and it is a pleasure to be there. They're always very friendly and accomadating. A perfect getaway for a child free relaxing break in perfect peace!

Tips:

There are many attractions a short drive away such as puzzlewood and perrygrove train station.we just enjoy the walks through the forest and a visit to the docks. A very lovely cafe, the postage stamp cafe.. which served a delicious and filling breakfast and a decent price. We are slowly finding our way arou d but are figuring out there are some nice hidden gems if you search!

The site is well laid out and very well maintained. You will find John very helpful. We camp in a bell tent without an electrical hook-up. As there are understandable restrictions on open fires a communal fire pit area might be a good idea. This would provide a focal point in the evenings and an opportunity to get to know other campers.

Tips:

The Rising Sun is just down the road (by car).The Nags Head is within walking distance and has a nice garden but is pretty basic with a limited ‘pub’ menu.

Deanwood is one of the best campsites we have visited. They advertise as being dog friendly and they certainly are and provide a huge, stock fenced field for the dogs to run free. Everything has been well thought out for campers, water taps and facilities close to where you camp, washing up and freezer for a few bits, washing machine/tumble dryer and great idea of designated cupboard for lost and found items if you leave something in the showers or anywhere when they clean up they pop it in there and you can pick it up. The little hedges between pitches give a lovely feel to the site and are well spaced apart. The staff are very helpful and keep everything spotless without you even noticing they are doing it. We went in September and not many people there as it is getting towards the end of the tent camping season but they still cleaned the facilities daily and paid attention to keeping everything right for us few campers. The only thing I would change is the showers which have a push button timer which is too short so you have to keep pushing the button whilst trying to juggle slippery shampoo bottles. I know that water saving features are great but as an adult only site it would be nice to have a shower and be trusted to turn it off when finished.or just have a bit longer on the timer button. Having said that it is the perfect campsite for everything else and we will be going back again.

Tips:

If you want a dog walking holiday it is perfect, just walk right off the campsite for miles of forest or in the car within 10 minutes we did Cannop Ponds, Speech House Lake, Mallards Pike Lake, Soudley Ponds, New Fancy and loads more. Lydney and Cinderfoot are close for shopping.

We booked our weekend stay last minute after finding the campsite through a third party site and what a wonderful find it was!! Lovely laid out well kept site with clean toilet/shower block and exceptional views from the pitch. Would definitely stay again. Received a clear email on booking giving directions to the site and then to the pitch when we arrived as the owners wouldn't be around for our arrival. They came to find up later to make sure that we had settled in and found everything we needed.

Tips:

Although you can ride into the forest directly from site our children drove to the cycle centre at Cannop so that they could use the marked out runs. We went on a couple of circular walks at Tintern and Speech house. We found small write ups for both in a brochure in the campsite information hut and then downloaded PDFs for both that we could use whilst out. There was a lovely wooded dog walk directly from the campsite too so no need to go anywhere in the car if you didn't want to.

Polite friendly staff gave clear information and assistance. We were there for a large group 60 th birthday in Yorkley, unfortunately the families with teenagers were not able to stay at the campsite with us as it is adults only which was a shame. The site has beautiful views and is peaceful and quiet without children and welcomes dogs, suitable for touring, walkers and just relaxing in a beautiful location.

Tips:

There is no shop on site but a local spar type shop in Yorkley 10 mins away for groceries, lovely walks local pubs in walking distance and the Rising Sun is particularly nice in the middle of the forest.

It is normally very peaceful and with the forest just 50 yards from my current pitch. Great if you enjoy hearing owls at night! I keep coming back here for very good reasons ! Thank you.

The site seemed too good to be true when we found it on line, especially considering the very reasonable price, which included WiFi, awning, washing machine etc that are so often charged extra. After a week on site we can confirm that it is exactly as described. Fantastic for the dogs, with a great off lead exercise area on site plus immediate access to the forest directly from the site. It was really quiet with spotless facilities. There were lots of fantastic walks plus places to visit nearby. We have already booked to go back.

The only reason I didn't give 5for facilities, was because although excellently clean, the shower and toilet block could be more spacious to allow more privacy and an area for hair drying where you weren't in the way of the hand washing and drying. An electric socket for own hairdriers would also have been handy

Pitches level which was great Views spectacular. WiFi only worked by reception, hence only 4stars fir facilities as website does not mention this limitation. Easy to find, great directions and helpful staff.

Facilities and cleanliness of the campsite was perfect, and the welcome from the owners great. We arrived on the Thursday, and the Thursday morning and Friday night were peaceful and relaxing. It was unfortunate on the Friday that quite a few caravans turned up, who seemed to be together and therefore the Friday evening was not so quite and relaxing and actually one of your other guests had to go and ask them to be quiet past 10.30 pm as they could be heard around the camp site. This was a bit unfortunate. Great welcome for dogs also and having the woods right next door to walk them first thing and last thing in the day was very helpful.

Clean, well laid out site with good motohome factilities. Location is excellent for the Forest of Dean and surrounding area. Quiet at night for a good sleep. Arrive as advised on the website to avoid narrow local roads and there is no problem.

Tips:

Puzzlewood is a nice afternoon walk and Sculpture Trail is a bit more challenging. The end Lydney Harbour was a nice stroll. For those who are not easily offended, and I really mean it, Littledean Jail is one of the most unusual, disturbing and weird collection I’ve ever seen. Not for kids. The collection of Holocaust, Crime and naughty bits are not for the faint hearted but I’m glad I Didn’t miss it.

The forest just out of the campsite was perfect for walks. Depending on how far someone is willing to travel: there are plenty of castles to visit; we ventured as far as Caerleon to see the Roman baths and amphitheatre; Tintern abbey is an all time favourite, with a nice walk across the Wye and up to Devils pulpit for some great views. A little closer to home was clearwell caves and puzzle wood.
