The Strawmouse Field: Sunshine

General

  • Quiet rural wild camping site two miles from the Wye Valley
  • On Cycle Route 42; 15 minutes to Offa’s Dyke Path
  • Farm shop and pub nearby; dogs allowed

Whether it’s cycling or walking that takes your fancy or crazy castles and ancient woodlands, The Strawmouse Field will let you in on the Monmouthshire countryside and its attractions. A five-minute drive from the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you’ll also be well-based for canoeing, cycling or walking – and perhaps Offa Dyke’s Path (15 minutes’ drive) or Cycle Route 42 (direct access from site).

Here, you’ll be putting down roots with views of the Brecon Beacons and the Severn Estuary. This is a wild camping site on a working cattle farm, so it's a quiet patch with basic facilities so as to encourage wildlife in the grassland meadows.

There is a portaloo toilet on site that's cleaned regularly and stocked with toilet rolls and soap. There’s no rubbish disposal here so you'll need to take away whatever you generate to preserve the natural surroundings for all.

Perhaps you might want to weave some tasty local produce into your mealtimes on this break. Handily, there’s a farm shop five minutes’ drive away. The local village has a pub within five minutes’ drive of the site too, while Chepstow (15 minutes’ drive) is packed with more friendly eateries.

You'll know you've arrived when you see the Welsh flag at the entrance. Pick whichever pitch is free and start setting up – there's no need to book in with the site team first.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

This site has no on-site toilet and shower facilities.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Excellent. Would definitely come back again. Great atmosphere.05/07/2022

    Exactly what you need for wild camping, a loo and a view. Amazing view overlooking the stretch of water between Chepstow and Bristol. Jim the owner would pop along each day just to say hi and refill the Jerry can of water. Really lovely space to stay in. Well maintained ground.

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike, just a heads up. If you are expecting anything more than a clean portaloo, then this is not the place for you. This is wild camping, this is exactly how it should be. Simple.

Very remote, very quiet and no big vans.21/06/2022

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAlan C.Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    It's what is says it is, part of a field with a Portaloo in it. It's miles from anywhere, doesn't even appear to have a (place) name and is down very, very narrow lanes. That's exactly why it's so lovely. Small, peaceful with beautiful views across the valley and away to the Bristol Channel. No Monster homes-on-wheels can get there, small vans maybe OK but it's primarily a tenters set-up. Certainly would stay here again if I can find a reason to be in the area again.

    Disliked:

    Peaceful location, easy to find. Flat pitches next to a lovely meadow. Unfortunately it rained whole time we were here, I think there may have been lovely views across the valley but sadly we did not see them! Lots of local woodland walks.
