Fully serviced pitches

General

  • Family-owned farm site in open countryside with Forest of Dean views
  • Under 10 minutes’ drive from Newnham-on-Severn and 25 to Wye valley
  • Half a mile from the River Severn and the Severn Way

Big skies, green Gloucestershire countryside and artisan booze: what more could one want on a hol than this trip-boosting trio?

If this sounds like just the holiday ticket, seek out Severn Valley Touring Caravan and Camping Site in the village of Awre, less than a five-minute walk from a traditional cider producer and a 10-minute drive to lovely Newnham-on-Severn. The park's also in an easy position to get to, as it's a mile and a half off the A48 Gloucester to Chepstow road and 25 minutes by car from the Wye valley.

Park up, pitch up then sit – cider in hand – to take in the gorgeous views from here ( the Forest of Dean and the Malvern Hills are visible on clear days) and watch birds soar through the skies: the site's surrounds are home to creatures like kestrels, buzzards and red kites. Early risers might get a sneak peek of hares around the grounds at dawn too, and barn owls have been spotted in neighbouring fields during dusk in this ancient area once listed in the Domesday book as a royal hunting ground...

Whatever time of day or night, visitors have access to well-designed amenities like a purpose-built toilet and shower block, as well as covered washing-up facilities and a shower room that’s accessible to people with disabilities.

Off site, the Severn Way is about half a mile away for roams beside the river. Time your visit right (check timetables online) to get a glimpse of the Severn Bore phenomenon, the surfable waves that roll right through the water at certain times of the year...

    Great site with a quiet location and very good (very clean) facilities. A warm welcome with easy contact details. We liked the laminated walking maps of the area as well as the nearby cider farm. Level pitches with great star gazing opportunities on clear nights.

  • Liked: 

    Had a great 3 nights here with my 10 yr old. The family Shepherds Hut was really well equipped and very clean.
    Site very peaceful and friendly. Spotless throughout and water always hot. Lots to do nearby:
    We stopped at the Bird of Prey centre on the way to the site which is well worth a visit (30 minutes drive)
    Went on 2 great walks (there are laminated maps to take with you) along the Severn. Stunning and gorgeous in any season I would think. The small village of Awre is pretty and the churchyard interesting if you
    like that kind of thing(!) We do...
    There is a cider farm next to the campsite but you’ll be pleased to hear my 10 yr old didn’t drink any.
    We also drove to Lydney Harbour for a look round which is under restoration and really interesting. On one day the rain was torrential so we went to Taurus Crafts just outside Lydney & did some Christmas Shopping. The Chocolate Shop sells lovely chocolate 😆
    Also had a treat Chinese takeaway from The Golden Phoenix in Lydney which was delicious.
    Plenty to do and fantastic scenery. I plan to go back with adult company and do some longer walks.
    Thankyou for a great stay

    Loved this site! Small, friendly, quiet, perfect! Huge level hard standing pitches with own water tap and drainage separated by hedges for privacy. Excellent spotlessly clean facilities. Excellent Covid secure measures in place.
    Visited by a chicken every morning, lots of other wildlife to be seen sheep, guinea fowl, donkeys!
    Local apple juice can be purchased on site (delicious), good location for the Forest of Dean.

    We stayed in a shepherd's hut for 2. It had everything we needed and more, was scrupulously clean and had plenty of storage for quite a small space. All the fittings and equipment were modern and attractive and the bed was large and comfortable.
    Cooking was easy with the provision of an induction hob.This experience greatly surpassed my expectations.
    Can't wait to book again!

Above-ground adventures complete, seek subterranean times at Clearwell Caves a 25-minute drive. Or learn about flying critters at The International Centre for Birds of Prey (half an hour away) then glide about at your own leisure in a canoe hired from Symonds Yat (within a 35-minute drive).
