Aiming to do lots of out-and-abouting? Fancy finishing your days with easy access to pints and a tasty dinner that you didn’t have to cook? Bag a berth at The Blacksmiths Arms in the little Gloucestershire village of Alvington and it’s all yours.
Country pursuits are plentiful in the surrounding area: canoeing, scuba diving training, horse riding, fishing, golf and mountain bike trails are all within a half-hour drive, and the site is well placed for walks on the Offa’s Dyke Path or in the Forest of Dean. Getting out to all of the above (and attractions including Tintern Abbey, Chepstow Castle and Clearwell Caves) is a cinch as the Arms is handily located just off the A48.
And should your fave country pursuit involve a pint of ale by the fire, a game of darts and a plate of pub grub? That’s all sorted too, as the site happens to be attached to a friendly country inn that’s got all of the above, including a menu that turns local produce into a wide range of different dishes.
All the basics are in place too – there’s a free wifi connection in the pub and clean, tidy toilet and shower facilities out by the pitches.

Active times await… if you’re up for a stroll or few, take your boots over to the Offa’s Dyke Path (10 minutes’ drive) for views over both England and Wales at the same time, or the Forest of Dean (10 minutes) for walks on waymarked woodland trails.
More? Saddle up for horseback hacks from a riding centre 20 minutes away, swing your clubs at Lydney Golf Club (10 minutes) or take a mountain bike to the trails in Coleford (20 minutes). If you’re up for a bit of water-based action, set forth for canoe trips from Symonds Yat (half an hour) or suit up for scuba dive training at the National Diving & Activity Centre (five minutes).
You’re allowed to take it easy though if you prefer… perhaps with a trip to Tintern Abbey’s gorgeous Gothic ruins (20 minutes), a subterranean tour of Clearwell Caves (15 minutes) or a canter around Chepstow Castle (10 minutes), keeping an eye out for Europe’s oldest castle doors as you go. Run out of puff? Get some steam power and Severn views with a four-mile ride on the Dean Forest Railway (10 minutes).
