The Bulls HeadFavourite
The Bull's Head, Craswall is in a idyllic location at the foot of the Black Mountains in rural Herefordshire. Once called the 'most remote pub in the UK', this is truly the place to get away from it all. The pub is renowned for its excellent food (Good Food Guide 2013) and its selection of local ciders and real ales. The pub is only open Friday Saturday and Sundays.
The campsite is in a gently sloping field next to the pub, and is wild camping at its finest. At times you may have to share the field with a couple of sheep (although they'll probably stay at the far end of the field).
Please note that there is no mobile phone signal in the area. GPS and satnavs are unreliable due to the remote location, so please come prepared.

This is wild camping at its finest! All pitches are in a field at the foot of The Black Mountain. There is a gentle slope, with a brook at the bottom of the field. The only facilities are lavatories, nothing else. Gazebos and pup tents are welcome, and there is no restriction on pitch size.
You may also be lucky enough to share the field with sheep.
