Ours is a spacious site, over 20-acres of tree lined stream and field.
All pitches are on grass.
We take up to 5-Caravans and around 10 tents, so there is as much personal space as anyone could wish for.
You can set up your own private enclave, sit around small campfires, etc. Anything as long as it is peaceful. We offer tranquility, so no music!
****Hideaway in the country****

There are guinea pigs, goats old and young, pot-bellied pig, sheep, chickens, ducks, quail - all are very tame and all really enjoy seeing people. Visit them at any time, feed them, from our list of suitable feeds, sit with them, or join the official feeding round at 9am, daily.
We do have rain, but far less than might be expected
. Sheltered by the Black Mountains, we have about 1/2 of the rainfall experienced in Wales. (UK Met Office)

1) The Wye Valley,
2) The Forest of Dean,
3) The Black Mountains and The Brecon Beacons,

A fabulous Pub
. You are guaranteed a warm welcome at our splendid, dog and child friendly, local pub. fine ales and wines and excellent very reasonably priced food.
We welcome pets: dogs, cats, horses, children
, etc, relying on you to ensure that they do not bother other visitors. There is about a mile of paths mowed alongside the stream, around and through the hay-fields, to walk dogs or just stroll before breakfast.
Although we welcome all, the site is very quiet and picturesque and is particularly favored by adults and older people and those who want a peaceful time away.
We are not for you if you want a place for loud gatherings! There are sites nearby better suited to that than we are and we are very happy to advise you.
We provide free-range eggs: chicken, duck and quail fresh daily; and a range of other essentials, in our pound shop.

Or just stroll and chill, under the trees or by the stream.

We do welcome drop-in guests, but booking is brisk and we keep the numbers small, so we recommend advance booking to be safe.
We are on the A466, between Monmouth and Hereford. We are just off the B4521 road from Ross-on-Wye to Abergavenny ("The Gateway to the Black Mountains").
The Postcode is HR2 8QN, and the entrance is actually on the A 466. However, pitches are all well away from the road, so little traffic sound.
The entrance is easy, straight and level, if approaching from the South.
If approaching from the North, it is easier to pass by and perform a U Turn, thus approaching from the South. There are easy places to do this, just past the village. Alternatively, many people take the A40 South from Ross, and join the A466 near Monmouth, heading North. That means leaving the A40, before Monmouth, at a roundabout, signed A466. You will come to a cross-roads with traffic lights - turn right onto the Hereford Road (A466).
There is a safe play area for smaller children, near, but not too near...
including this guinea pig barn where you can watch 'pigs' of all ages, but for their safety do not enter.
Campfires are essential
You can bring your own fire basket or we will lend you one.
You can collect wood, or we will supply it to you.

There is no ambient light, so a good place for stargazing. These photos taken from the site.
