General

  • Quiet camping in the Wye Valley three miles from the Welsh border
  • Lake on site for fishing
  • Fire bowls and fuel for hire/sale

Blessed peace and biting fish… serenity seekers and amateur anglers alike can hope for a restfully quiet time at Burhope Farm near Orcop in Herefordshire, where the scenery is stupendous and the by-night stargazing stellar.

Even the uninitiated should get a nibble at the carp-crammed fishing lake here – but if fishing's not your thing, you can simply lie beside the lake or on one of the rustic benches with a book or your own thoughts…

When venturing off site, the farm is close enough to Herefordshire's and Shropshire's old market towns and active outdoor options for day trips, but peaceful enough for countryside unwinding and rural strolls in every direction: the Forest of Dean and the Brecon Beacons National Park are both within easy reach.

Pitches are in a wide open field with wide open countryside views and access to a drinking water tap every two pitches, chemical disposal nearby and grey water disposal.

If you're the sort that hopes for first-class amenities on a campsite too, you're sorted: the centrally heated loo and shower block, disabled facilities and recycling facilities on site are all immaculately maintained.

Burhope Farm welcomes well-behaved dogs.

    What a gem of a site tucked away near the Welsh border. Perfect for if you want a peaceful stay on site or for visiting the lovely towns of Ross-on-Wye, Monmouth or even the city of Hereford no more than half an hour away.
    Peaceful setting, although there are tractors trundling down the lane this soon becomes a familiar sound along with families enjoying themselves.

    Facilities are small but clean and the showers lovely and hot. The owners are building up a small shop with basic supplies and welcome suggestions about what they could stock in future. Free range eggs are available too. Fire pits and wood are also available to hire - this was popular with many.

    The site has a small lake with just £3 per rod per day, adults and children alike are guaranteed hours of fun catching a range of carp, from tiddlers to those around 5-6lbs on simple baits.

    Fantastically priced for the quality and cleanliness of site - would certainly recommend this to others in the future and already thinking about when we can make a return visit as my husband and 10 year old loved the fishing!

    The horses in the neighbouring field and the carp in the fishpond were fearless and interested in interaction with campers!

    Beautiful setting, lovely for the girls to feed the fish in the large pond, very accommodating owner.

    Disliked: 

    Wasn't much water in the portaloo over the two days so couldn't really wash hands inthem properly but a great idea to have a couple of them down the bottom of the field as it meant we didn't have a long walk to a toilet.

From the manager...

Sorry about the water in the ports loos, they were hired and only a temporary

From the manager...

Thank-you for your review, very much appreciated,i don't know if you had noticed on other reviews about the loos and showers I have answered telling people that we are in the process of putting more loos and showers in but worked has stoped due to having people on the site because the next stage is digging out the drains so we thought it better to wait until the season quietens down.
So hopefully if we see you next year, all the loos and showers will be finished.

Directions


We are based in the Herefordshire countryside down some lanes which connect the A49, the A466 and the A465.

From the A465, turn off at Pontrilas Merchants between Abergavenny and Hereford and look for signs which say 'Canoe Centre and Burhope Farm Campsite'.

From the M50 join the A49, or if you are just on the A49, we are midway between Hereford and Ross-on-Wye.

From Ross-on-Wye, as you approach 'Harewood End', you will see a signpost for Orcop. Take this lake to its end. The end crosses a main road and then follow that lane for approx 3-4 miles. Follow the white signs for 'Canoe Centre and Campsite'.

From the Hereford end, follow the signs to Wormelow. Just outside of Wormelow is a right-hand turning signposted Orcop Hill. Follow this up and over the hill, then turn right at the crossroads at the foot of the hill. We are situated three-quarters of a mile up there on the right-hand side.

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

History and fishing, canoeing and cycling, pottering around market towns and clambering over old old castles are all handy from here in Herefordshire, Shropshire and over the border in Powys and east Wales.

The fishing in this area is a pull for anglers the land over, who come to try their luck at salmon, trout and coarse fishing on the River Wye. Pike of up to 30lb are landed from the Wye each year and it's said by those in the know to be one of the best rivers in Britain for bagging barbel.

If you don't fancy fishing, paddle a canoe or kayak along the river on a self-guided or guided trip available from one of the many watersports operators in the area.

More canoeing and fishing day trips – and mountain biking, hiking and horse riding – are at the nearby Forest of Dean: look out for wild boar and all manner of wild birds while you're there.

Both sides of the England/Wales border have more than their fair share of ancient castles to see – possibly because of all the ancient fighting between the two lands – and we respectfully suggest you can't come to these here parts without seeing at least one of them.

On the English side, thirteenth century Goodrich Castle, eleventh century Wigmore Castle and fifteenth century Hampton Court Castle and Garden (no, not the Henry VIII one) are the ones to view; on the Welsh, go south to super Chepstow Castle or west into the Brecon Beacons for castle ruins at Hay and Carreg Cennen.

Other day trips we respectfully suggest you can't come to these here parts without considering are meanders around the area's market towns: Hereford (and cathedral), Ross-on-Wye and Leominster in Herefordshire; Abergavenny just inside Wales, and to the north, Shrewsbury and Ludlow in Shropshire.

Must see

  • Goodrich Castle (8.7 miles)
  • Caldicot Castle & Country Park (9.2 miles)
  • Raglan Castle (11.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Skenfrith Castle (3.9 miles)
  • The Weir (9.6 miles)
