General

  • Quiet camping in the Wye Valley three miles from the Welsh border
  • Lake on site for fishing
  • Fire bowls and fuel for hire/sale

Blessed peace and biting fish… serenity seekers and amateur anglers alike can hope for a restfully quiet time at Burhope Farm Campsite near Orcop in Herefordshire, where the scenery is stupendous and the by-night stargazing stellar.

Even the uninitiated should get a nibble at the carp-crammed fishing lake here – but if fishing's not your thing, you can simply lie beside the lake or on one of the rustic benches with a book or your own thoughts…

When venturing off site, the farm is close enough to Herefordshire's and Shropshire's old market towns and active outdoor options for day trips, but peaceful enough for countryside unwinding and rural strolls in every direction: the Forest of Dean and the Brecon Beacons National Park are both within easy reach.

Pitches are in a wide open field with wide open countryside views and access to a drinking water tap every two pitches, plus chemical disposal nearby and grey water disposal.

If you're the sort that hopes for first-class amenities on a site too, you're sorted: the centrally heated loo and shower block, disabled facilities and recycling facilities on site are all immaculately maintained.

Burhope Farm welcomes well-behaved dogs.

really good despite access and we will go again10/21/2020

    Despite covid and quite cold weather everything was good. On the day we were due to arrive the owner gave us a courtesy call to explain that a digger was working on site and that some noise may be heard until lunchtime Saturday. We were fine with that and thought just how thoughtful that was to let us know and give the option to cancel visit.
    Upon arrival we were courteously shown how to access through coded security gate and which pitch we could use. Pitches are pretty well level gravel with electric and water close. We had a nice view of lake which if so inclined can be fished for a small fee.
    The facilities on site were open and owner explained all the procedures to be followed during covid, although we stayed self sufficient, the overall impression given by the toilet and shower area was brilliant, clean heated and very well kept.
    Owners were very friendly and helpful and overall our experience there was pleasurable and we would go again.

    Disliked: 

    access to the site can be a bit narrow whether arriving from the Ross direction/Monmouth or from Pontrillas, but we believe worth it. We appreciate this isn't the fault of the site but is our only slight dislike.

Just a quick message in answer to your review you left on our page i am some what shocked at what you have written as the review below yours arrived and stayed the same two days as you did and could not be more different, along with all my other reviews, i can understand that you were probably not happy you could not fish but you could have come and spoken with me, i run the site by myself and work very hard to maintain the standards of which all of my previous reviews show and i am sorry you felt you had to leave this review.

    The only quarm was checkout time as certain visitors did not vacate by 10 which spoilt one of our days as we were so close by we could hear them clearing away all day with a hoover. Not enjoyable.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review, just to let you know i think the people that were cleaning near by you were leaving a day early, they were not due to leave until the Monday so it was not a case of them over staying the departure time. Sorry that they disturbed you.

Local attractions

History and fishing, canoeing and cycling, pottering around market towns and clambering over old old castles are all handy in Herefordshire, Shropshire and over the border in Powys and east Wales.

The fishing in this area is a pull for anglers who come to try their luck at salmon, trout and coarse fishing on the River Wye. Pike of up to 30lb are landed from the Wye each year and it's said by those in the know to be one of the best rivers in Britain for bagging barbel.

If you don't fancy fishing, paddle a canoe or kayak along the river on a self-guided or guided trip available from one of the many watersports operators in the area. More canoeing and fishing day trips – and mountain biking, hiking and horse riding – are at the nearby Forest of Dean.

Both sides of the England/Wales border have more than their fair share of ancient castles to see – possibly because of all the ancient fighting between the two lands – and really it'd be wrong to come to these here parts without seeing at least one of them.

On the English side, thirteenth-century Goodrich Castle, eleventh-century Wigmore Castle and fifteenth-century Hampton Court Castle and Garden (no, not the Henry VIII one) are the ones to view; on the Welsh, go south to super Chepstow Castle or west into the Brecon Beacons for castle ruins at Hay and Carreg Cennen.

Must see

  • Goodrich Castle (14.0 kilometers)
  • Caldicot Castle & Country Park (14.8 kilometers)
  • Raglan Castle (18.8 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Skenfrith Castle (6.3 kilometers)
  • The Weir (15.5 kilometers)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
