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.

    Quiet site. Toilet block kept clean despite the horrendous mud on site!

    Disliked: 

    No heating in toilet/shower block, so VERY cold. Facilities fine for the number onsite whilst we were there; I doubt would be anywhere near enough when site is at capacity. Poor drainage meant very wet pitches.

    I booked this site for our Easter break as we were looking for somewhere near Ross-on-Wye. This site was easy to get to from the M50, had nice hard standing pitches (ideal as the ground was so wet), had a small play area and toilets/showers. A little more info could have been provided on arrival of where to find everything. We would stay again if we were in the area and would recommend.

    The owner was very helpful and pleasant, we had a lovely pitch with electric,and gravel hard standing, showers very warm and toilets kept clean even though it was a very wet weekend. Lovely walks around the site and into the forest. We will book to go back later in the year when hopefully wont be so wet.

    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.

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 (7.1 miles)
  • Goodrich Castle (8.0 miles)
  • Gloucester Waterways Museum (10.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Westbury Court Garden (8.4 miles)
  • Ashleworth Tithe Barn (8.6 miles)
