Lovely site, good facilities (only lacking a shop), very clean shower block ( plenty of hot water). Good service points. Wide choice of pitches, mixture of level and undulating. Staff very helpful on arrival. I used this as a base for a few days walking and cycling, it was perfect for my needs. Would definitely visit again

This campsite was ok, but we did not think that the tidiness of the amenities was not up to the usual standard. Whether this was down to it being the end of the season, who knows. The area itself was really good and the New Inn pub nearby was excellent.

We were made very welcome on arrival. We were able to choose our pitch.

This review is for Bracelands - Forest of Dean

We were made very welcome on arrival. We were able to choose our pitch. Site was very quiet and the view was spectacular. We cycled out through the forest on one day and walked around Symonds Yat another day. Walking to the pub was rather dark but a good torch is all you need. The Dog and Muffler is a lovely one to visit. A beautiful setting and nice and quiet at this time of year.
