Beanhill Farm: View of the site from the field

General

  • Peaceful site set in the Royal Forest of Dean
  • A 20-minute drive from Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle
  • Less than a mile from two excellent village pubs

Green fields galore + a meandering brook + gently sloping hills = a splendid spot to pitch up. Beanhill Farm may look like a humble enough place, but its location in the Royal Forest of Dean (how posh) puts it firmly into 'tiptop area' territory.

In this secluded corner of Gloucestershire, guests can take in valley views by day and stargazing opportunities overhead by night (a firepit and wood can be arranged to keep you cosy after dusk). The prevailing colour of those views depends on the season: bluebells fill the surrounding woods in spring, while bright yellow rapeseed takes over for a bright backdrop in summer months.

The A48 is less than a mile away, making it easy to plan day trips either side of the Welsh border. The nearest supermarket, in the nearby town of Lydney, is a 10-minute drive away; if you'd rather someone else sorted the eats stroll down into Alvington (20 minutes' stroll) for local food and an ale or two at one of two local pubs.

Barbecues are allowed for open-air cookouts, and you’re welcome to bring your dog along for this rural jaunt. All the essentials – a washing-up area, toilet block and showers – are provided to keep everyday life ticking along.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 21 or over.

A charge of £0.50 (€0.58) applies for the use of the shower.

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

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

    Beautiful area with opportunities for walking and general sightseeing.

    Disliked: 

    Not much interaction with owners on booking in. Quite a few pitches on a slope.

From the manager...

Thank you for the review, we are lucky to have such great countryside to walk in. The sight does slope in areas, all electric pitches are flat and you do choose where to pitch if you don’t have electric, so no one needs to be on a slope if they don’t want to be 😁

    Absolutely loved this campsite - stunning location, quiet and rural with beautiful views. Toilets and showers were clean and great. Pitches were large and spacious and there were picnic tables dotted about that you could pull up to your pitch for the duration of your stay. Lovely big field with space for children to play games. Nice pubs in walking distance.

Local attractions

Outdoorsy types will be spoilt for choice in the Forest of Dean. Offa’s Dyke Path (10 minutes’ drive) straddles the English-Welsh border: following the route down towards the Sedbury Cliffs near Chepstow makes for a particularly pleasant jaunt.

The site is also 10 miles south of the popular Family Cycle Trail, where guests can make a whistle-stop tour of the surrounding countryside. The circular 11-mile route runs through the Cannop Valley, along the old tracks of the Severn and Wye railway (passing through abandoned stations) and passes the remains of former coal mines at Foxes Bridge and Lightmoor. Mallards Pike (20 minutes' drive), where there is a car park, is also home to a Go Ape high ropes course.

If you want to experience greenery with a bit of a twist, head to Puzzlewood (15 minutes) for a maze (as the name suggests), plus farm animals, an adventure playground and an interactive treasure hunt for the kids.

For a proper step back in time, Tintern Abbey (20 minutes' drive) is surely one of the most impressive ruins in Wales. Make a day of it by contrasting its elegant Gothic facade with the sturdy walls of Chepstow Castle (also 20 minutes), built in days of yore to defend the banks of the River Wye.

Must see

  • Berkeley Castle (5.9 miles)
  • Chepstow Castle (5.9 miles)
  • WWT Slimbridge Wetlands Centre (8.2 miles)

National Trust

  • The Kymin (8.1 miles)
