General

  • Riverside location in a secluded countryside setting
  • Close to the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean
  • Well-equipped play area with climbing wall and play deck

Pitch up by a Welsh river in Monmouthshire's clean, friendly and well-maintained Glen Trothy Caravan Park, in a secluded countryside setting near the village of Mitchel Troy about a mile and a half from Monmouth.

You'll be nicely placed here for traipses around the Wye Valley and the lush Forest of Dean – and as it's Wales, the area as a whole is full of ancient castles and abbeys, spectacular scenery and miles of walking trails.

Kids will be kept occupied on site at the well-equipped and centrally set play area, with swings, climbing frame, play deck and cabin, ladders, a climbing wall and a sand pit, and grownups are well sorted with the site amenities: Glen Trothy has a launderette, a washing-up room and a toilet and shower block with showers, hand dryers and hairdryers. The facilities are suitable for guests with disabilities.

Propane, butane gas and campingaz are also available, as well as a chemical disposal point.

Please note

A charge of £0.40 applies for the use of shower.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Nice friendly site 23/10/2017

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Very friendly staff on arrival and easy check in . Large pitch size fully equipped water drainage electric, nice slabbed area alongside van.

    Disliked: 

    Some down sides where driving on and off pitch muddy areas from road to hard standing making it difficult when wet mud churning up. Also not much room in shower cubicle, needs some where to put clothes washing equipment only one hook.( Showers and toilets very clean though ) No tv reception on van areal need to take an outdoor extension my fault for not taking one.

    Nice park, liked the layout friendly staff, facilities nice and clean, pitches were level, but after a lot of rain became a bit muddy where car parked.

    Disliked: 

    we could not get any signal on the television, and at this time of the year needed something in the evenings.
    the noise from the nearby A40 dual carriageway was quite loud at times, especially early mornings.

Local attractions

This is walking land… Monmouthshire has over 1,000 miles of public footpaths to investigate, and walks all over the county including a couple around Glen Trothy's local village of Mitchel Troy, through woods and farmland and with views right across Wales and across the border to Herefordshire.

County town Monmouth, the birthplace of Henry V, is these days a Fair Trade town with many independent shops, regular markets, cafés and restaurants alongside chain shops, the Monmouth Museum and the Savoy Theatre, believed to be the oldest working theatre in Wales.

If you'd rather get a bit more active, the River Wye is around for kayaking and paddleboarding (and fishing for more contemplative times), and golf is available nearby. Too tame? Take a tandem paraglide flight off the Blorenge hill in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

If the weather is a bit drizzly, piles of indoor attractions are around too, like the museums of Abergavenny, Monmouth or Chepstow or a castle visit to Caldicot and its country park, Tretower Court, Goodrich or Raglan.

Must see

  • Caldicot Castle & Country Park (1.6 miles)
  • Raglan Castle (5.1 miles)
  • Goodrich Castle (7.3 miles)

National Trust

  • The Kymin (2.3 miles)
  • Skenfrith Castle (6.6 miles)
