General

  • Rural location within walking distance of village centre
  • Coarse fishing lake, bike trails and climbing wall on site
  • Near the Offa's Dyke Path and other walks

If you're off to hike Offa's Dyke, or to take the Herefordshire Black and White Trail, or to canter England – and Wales – by horseback, or climb, fish or pedal a very short stroll from your pitch… you'll find Leominster's Townsend Touring Park just lovely.

This is a roomy farm site near the Welsh border, with easy access to the Offa's Dyke Path and set on the edge of Pembridge, one of Herefordshire's Black and White villages. Scenic walks and cycle trails, several golf clubs and horse riding are all in the area – as well as several pubs in which to sample the local cider...

Back at base, there's a coarse fishing lake to try your luck at, along with woodland all-weather bike trails, a rock climbing wall and areas for ball games. A comfy lounge with TV, pool table, table tennis table and limited wifi access was added for guests' use in 2017 (please buy codes for the wifi in reception).

Also on site are picnic tables and a small shop, and amenities including showers, toilets, baby changing facilities, disabled access, a launderette and a washing-up area.

The centre of Pembridge a few minutes' walk away has two pubs, a restaurant, cafés, a church and an art gallery.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Fantastic site well worth a visit. Facilities second to none. 05/08/2017

  • Fully-serviced gravel pitch (super)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Everything about the stay was fantastic. Pitch No 34 right at the bottom of the field was so quiet and everybody we met on the site were friendly, from staff to fellow holidaymakers.
    The fishing pool looked well worth a go if you enjoy fishing and I did see quite a few pulled out although no big ones.
    The toilet block was spotlessly clean and the radio background music was appreciated.
    The whole park was well maintained and the grandchildren really enjoyed the play area.
    We would definitely come back here again.

    Disliked: 

    The shop only being open for a short time first thing in the morning.

    Absolutely amazing site, beautifully located, spotless facilities. Would like to thank staff who clearly work hard to keep it clean and orderly. Stayed in a pod - would recommend as an alternative to a tent. Situated in the beautiful village of Pembridge. Two pubs in the village both nice but especially recommended the New Inn. Stunning 13th Century Inn - very welcoming Landlady and food was excellent. This site really deserves its five stars. We are planning on returning in the near future.

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We stayed in Mole Manor for 2 nights, The most spotless well looked after site, beatiful lake, spotless amenities, and walking distance to the beautiful Black and White Village of Pembridge. The Manor House was small but perfectly formed, everything you need has been thought of! Great bathroom with shower, tv, fire, fridge with a decent size small freezer at the top of the fridge, kettle toaster and all cups/plates ect. Out side was patio furniture with tables/bbq and fire pit. Views over the site, and plenty of places near by to explore, could not recommend enough!

Very clean & quiet 24/07/2017

    Very clean & well kept site. Quiet just what we were looking for. A nice stroll to the local village pubs, set you up for a few beers & a bite to eat. A chilled couple of days. Plus a £2.00 refund.

    Disliked: 

    Not so much a dislike, but more of couldn't understand. We booked a F/Serviced hardstanding pitch & was called a couple of days before to say they could not offer the pitch as someone was taken ill & had to leave their van there. We had no problem with that & we hope the person involved fully recovers. We had to have a F/serviced grass pitch. But all the time we were there the hard standing pitch right in front of us was vacant all weekend.???

From the manager...

Thank you for your comments & Thank you for choosing Townsend for your holiday destination .
There are a number of pitches sold on a long term basis / seasonal , at times the customers tour with their vans leaving their pitch vacant.
We do not use their pitch whilst they are off site...so occasionally a pitch looks unoccupied whereas in fact it is already paid for and as such in use .
Hope this clarifies for you .
kindest Regards
Su

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Local footpaths and the site woodland should keep your feet occupied for some time, but if you want a longer or more strenuous hike, access the Offa's Dyke Path five miles from Townsend. It runs for 177 miles from near Chepstow to finish at Prestatyn on the Welsh north coast, via the old Offa's Dyke earthwork, the Shropshire Hills and the Black Mountains: the truly determined should be able to triumphantly complete it in 12 days (or so).

A seven-mile drive will take you to the market town of Leominster, the site of the National Trust's Croft Castle and 13th-century Priory Church, along with good shops and restaurants, pubs and cafés, and a public swimming pool.

The kids should also be all right zipping around the go-kart raceway at Weobley (seven miles) or the play areas and family activities of the Oaker Wood Leisure woodland centre, eight miles away. Horse riding is available at Bryngwyn Riding Centre, 12 miles from the farm.

Golf courses are at Kington (six miles), Weobley (seven miles) and Hereford (16 miles) for the keen ball gamer; for till ringing and heaps of heritage, check out the shopping and historic buildings in Hereford as well as Worcester and Gloucester, 30 and 40 miles away.

Must see

  • Ludlow Castle (12.5 miles)
  • Stokesay Castle (14.9 miles)
  • Witley Court & Gardens (English Heritage) (23.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Croft Castle and Parkland (5.7 miles)
