It’s not for nowt that this park is called Blossom…it’s set in a pear and plum orchard and each pitch is outlined with pear trees. And there’s a pick your own fruit farm practically on the doorstep: supearb all round, we say.
Blossom Touring Park Motorhome & Camp Site is a new park in Monmouthshire, and has been called a little gem by former guests for its friendly welcome from owner James, its peaceful location and the views towards the famed Sugar Loaf Mountain and its surrounding hills. The sunsets here are blooming special too…
Blossom has a dedicated camping area and 60 supersized pitches with electric hook-up via a token meter on all hardstanding pitches. All pitches on the park have a drain and water stand pipes are within easy access. Other amenities include a well-maintained loo and shower block, laundry facilities, and wifi at day rates (guests also get half an hour of wifi free).
Blossom Touring Park Motorhome & Camp Site is about a mile and a half from the market town of Abergavenny for pubs, restaurants and supermarkets. Two Sustrans cycle routes, 42 and 46, pass within a couple of hundred yards of the park.
Abergavenny is an ace little town, with heaps happening all year round. It’s also known as the Gateway to Wales for its access to the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons National Park and Offa's Dyke Path. The Beacons Way, the Usk Valley Walk and the Marches Way all pass through here too.
There are events and festivals of all flavours in Abergavenny: the Abergavenny Food Festival in September, lauded by the Observer as ‘the Glastonbury of food festivals’; its carnival and festival in summer; twice-yearly fair dating back centuries and markets most days at the Market Hall including flea and farmers’ … or get dramatic at any time of year with the plays and comedy of the Abergavenny Borough Theatre. Canny shopper? Poke around the car boot sale every Sunday a mile from Blossom.
At the nearby Brecon Beacons National Park, start off for info and buns at the National Park Visitor Centre for tips on what to do, or have a starting sightsee on the Brecon Mountain Railway. The national park and the area around it, including the area around Blossom, are a hit with stargazers who come for the clear skies: it’s possible to see the Milky Way from the Brecon Beacons National Park and it was the fifth place in the world to get International Dark-Sky Reserve Status.
Heritage and history geeks will find plenty to gaze upon in Monmouthshire too: the Big Pit National Coal Museum and underground tour at Blaenavon; the eleventh century Brecon Cathedral, the fab Raglan Castle for sightseeing and events, and museums including the Nelson collections at Monmouth Museum and the World War II air raid shelter at Abergavenny Museum.
The cathedral city of Newport is about half an hour’s drive away: there’s another castle here, several churches and a big museum and art gallery. For the kids, Walnut Tree Farm Park and the Newport Wetlands nature reserve should both have them blooming.

Dear Deniss G,
I would like to apologise for the loud campers ( Ree's Family ) and I would like to assure you that they will never be staying at Blossom Park again.They assured me they would be very quiet when they made the booking but as we both know this was not the case.
I went to see them at 11pm and told them to be quiet, I then went back at 12pm and repeated the request yet again only a little bit sterner. I then listened for 10 minutes to make sure that they where quiet.
They had the cheek to call me on Sunday complaining about the tone of voice I used to tell then to be quiet!
I am available 24 7 to deal with any issues that may arise if I am not in the reception I am in the building next door and I always leave a sign on the reception window stating this fact. I can also be contacted by telephone at anytime.
With a decent laptop the signal is fine but it's not so good with tablets and phones etc.
Sorry about the gravel roads, and the 5 mins shower' the roads are gravel to keep the speed down and the showers are 5 minutes long to avoid long cues.
Kind Regards James
Great stay 24 Jul 2014

From the manager...
We are an area of outstanding natural beauty the Toilet block was built next to an existing building to avoid urban spread. Please accept my apologies for not being able to build the Toilet block slap bang in the middle of an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Yes we have no street lighting on the pitches as an high percentage of our guests come here to Star Gaze and as we are in open country side urban street lighting would be totally out of place.
All of our pitches measure 42ft x 30ft approx which is considered a very low density park. Saying you have no room once your awning is up is nonsense I'm sorry to say.
Having a land drain on your pitch rather than having to walk along way to empty your waste water surely is a good thing? If you would have read the description of the park you would have known this. It is not unhygienic to tip waste water down a land drain in time's of drought we are told to use waste water to water our plants.
Please accept my apologies for being a basic park, yes we have no pools, clubs etc but I do not advertise that I have so why book here if that's what you wanted? Abergavenny Town centre is 1.5 miles away.
Customer service 1.5 stars can you please explain what I did to upset you?
We are at full capacity nearly every weekend so this basic site seems to fill a'lot of peoples
Liked: Clean toilets and shower block, electric pitch grass cut nice and short well clean.
The above was a strange comment for someone that gave 3 stars for cleanliness lol

It's now possible to make group bookings on Pitchup.com for up to 30 adults and 30 children.
As long as the 'one unit per pitch' rule is not highlighted on the pitch type information (please check this before completing your booking), you will be able to pitch your tents together on one booking.
If you are not satisfied with the results generated, try breaking your booking down for more options. For example, if you're a group of 10, enter five people for your initial search and book two pitches. Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches or accommodation units: the campsite or park will try to grant your request.
Before booking, please check the listing page for any group restrictions. These normally appear in a section titled 'Please note'. Please also check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit - especially for a large party - is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
