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.

Excellent site with clean facilities, friendly staff and level pitches 16/10/2017

    For the middle of October the weather was amazing, warm and sunny. Stayed 2 nights on hard standing with EHU (10amp) Due to time of year the site was nearly empty.
    The camping field is above the hard standings and is mainly flat. Kiddies adventure playground is here also.
    The facilities are near the house and were clean and tidy, the showers were a bit iffy with water pressure but were hot. But hey I'm camping so what they did the job.
    Campfires are allowed and they have Kiln Dried Logs for sale.
    Woodland walks are available from the site.
    Ross-on-Wye is about 5 miles away and you have a large choice of shops and supermarkets.
    All in all a very nice site.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really, maybe a bit of background noise from the M50 at times but didn't notice it most of the time.

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

    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.

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)

National Trust

  • Westbury Court Garden (8.7 miles)
  • Ashleworth Tithe Barn (8.9 miles)
