Wye Valley Youth Hostel is set on a 25-acre park on the banks of the River Wye. A great place for activity breaks or school trips, it even has its own canoe landing station.
Located in the heart of the Royal Forest of Dean, close to Symonds Yat Rock, guests can join the on-site course for orienteering and there are miles of footpaths to explore for walking holidays and trails for cyclists of all levels - perfect for cheap family activity breaks.
The campsite is part of the larger YHA site and campers have access to two toilets near the camping field as well as other toilet and shower facilities inside the hostel.
There is a firepit which guests are welcome to use, barbecues are permitted as long as they are raised and dogs are allowed on the campsite.
Campers can also access the fully-stocked self-catering kitchen, lounges and drying room within the hostel. There is also a licenced bar in the hostel, ideal for an evening drink.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
