General

  • Small family-run site between Newent and Ross-on-Wye
  • Lots to do; fishing, football, pond, play area, games room and more
  • Steps away from woodland walks

It might be a small site, but you'll find quite the heap to do for big folks and kids at Haywood Farm Caravan and Camping Park in Ross-on-Wye.

First up there's the fishing... And then there's the playground, in a scenic and spacious setting (check out the site pics) which also comes with a small pond, a five-a-side football pitch, a games room, indoor table tennis and – huzzah! – a treehouse.

Woodland walks are steps away from the site, as Haywood is close to Queens Wood on the edge of the Forest of Dean; and canoeing, kayaking, fishing, golf, horse riding, an indoor pool, mountain biking and tennis are all available in the surrounds.

Haywood is a family-run site a short drive from the M50, between Newent and Ross-on-Wye, and with a decent range of guest amenities including showers, a toilet block, disabled facilities, a washing-up area, chemical disposal and recycling. Gas cylinders and ice pack freezing are also available for guests.

Pubs, restaurants, shops and public transport are ten minutes' walk away.

Great accessible location, brill for families and groups needing space 02/09/2017

  • Liked: 

    The setting, accessibility and location were great. The pitch with campfires, electricity and space were perfect. The site was great for kids with the playground, football pitch, table tennis and woods. Loved that there was a free freezer, brilliant not to be charged brought the nose for ice packs! Altogether amazing value for money.

    Disliked: 

    The facilities (both washing up and toilets) though acceptable and fairly modern, would benefit from a more regular clean but this is a small moan considering the great value for money.

    Lovely open field, friendly staff, choice of pitch, quiet at night, great children's play area, campfires allowed.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing to let this campsite down were the facilities. Very old fashioned, floor constantly muddy (and this was during the hot, dry bank holiday) and showers were very much a trickle and ran alternately hot then cold. To be fair to staff, there always seemed to be someone mopping and they were clean on the whole but in definite need of a refurb.

    My family loved this site. It wasn't over crowded, the pitches were generous and well planned out. Showers and toilets were clean the whole time we were there and there was plenty of hot water. Washing up facilities were also good. There are lots of beautiful walks straight from the campsite - into the woods, around the large lake - the dog loved it! There is a great play area as well for children and the football pitch went down a storm. Such a lovely stay - we'll definitely be back.

    Great environment for children to play and plenty for them to do on site. Football pitch for the kids (and adults) to burn off excess energy. Quite a small site and not overly busy.

    Disliked: 

    Toilet and shower area a minor negative, but no real issue.

Local attractions

Woodland walks are seconds away from the farm and four golf courses are within a three-mile radius. Sports centres and swimming pools are a short drive away.

The Malvern Hills and the Brecon Beacons are probably the most visited destinations around this part of the England/Wales border, but plenty of other popular picks are around, like canoeing on the River Wye, wandering around the town of Ross-on-Wye, or fishing on the local lakes.

The Haywood Farm Caravan and Camping Park also firmly state that the nearby International Centre for Birds of Prey must be visited: it's the oldest birds of prey centre in the world and has lots of opps for seeing many sorts of raptors up close. Go: it's eggcellent.

Pottering around the Forest of Dean is another decent day out: if you're going forestwards, take time to stop off at the ancient woodland site of Puzzlewood and then the Clearwell Caves, mined for thousands of years to extract iron ore and now set up as a mining museum. (We'd also like to point out, just because, that some Doctor Who episodes were filmed here.)

Within driving distance, both Monmouth and Malvern towns are 20 minutes away, and the cities of Hereford and Gloucester within 25.

Must see

  • Eastnor Castle (7.0 miles)
  • Goodrich Castle (8.0 miles)
  • Gloucester Waterways Museum (10.9 miles)
