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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
