Rated 4 out of 5 by Patricia Roberts on 30th November 2019

Attended a Party Night last night, had a wonderful turkey meal, and very good entertainment. A real party atmosphere. Excellent value. Would certainly go again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peter Simmons on 28th December 2019

Been coming here for 30 years. I have always enjoyed the surroundings with my family, the deer and wild boar that roam the woods! The facilities have been improved over the years and is a fabulous place for a break. Excellent VFM for members. The food in the restaurant and bar is very good. The swimming pool, sauna and steam room are all excellent. The programme of entertainment for families, adults and children is varied but always enjoyable. The site is immaculate whatever the weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bernard King on 9th November 2019

Nice facilities with a lovely club house. Good touring pitches. Nice staff everywhere. Bar prices are whey too expensive. £3.90 a pint???

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrew on 5th September 2019

Pet free self catering accommodation. Some pet friendly accommodation too. On site activities available and spa treatments. Nature reserve nearby. Close to amenities. Ideal for exploring locally such as Clearwell Caves. Good standards here. Child friendly. Family friendly. Would happily return. Lots of room for campers, tents and pods. Has laundry, showers and toilets for campers. Has recycling facilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bev Jeffreys on 1st December 2019

Always spotlessly clean. Good size pitches. Last time we were there we pitched in the Dell and found it ok but this time we were pitched on the Meadow and it was perfect. Always friendly and helpful staff. The entertainment is always great and the food always fresh and beautifully presented. Service is second to none always perfect. Would recommend this site to anyone. Surrounded by the Forest of Dean lots of walkers and cyclists pathways to follow. Then relax in the pool and jacuzzi. In my/our eyes definitely 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Bev H
