General

  • Secluded bell tents at a Herefordshire family smallholding
  • A 10-minute drive from Ross-on-Wye and close to Forest of Dean
  • Feed the animals, collect eggs and build dens in the woods

Head down a Herefordshire country lane, cross a little stable yard and you’ll meet lovely Lilly and Billy, the emperor bell tents living in their own one-acre paddock at Little Bull Hill. Easily accessed from the M50 and a 10-minute drive from Ross-on-Wye, this spot makes a fab base for days out exploring the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley.

Much of what you’ll need is provided here, so you should be able to settle in with minimal fuss. Bedding is all sorted, and there’s lots of helpful kit in the stable yard kitchen to help prep meals (which you might like to cook over the firepit, perhaps?). Guests also have access to a toilet and a shower with oodles of hot water, plus a fridge freezer, firewood and laundry facilities on request. All of this is set up in a very private pitch so you’ll be able to enjoy the peace at your leisure.

As for getting out and about, it’s all about the outdoor activities: wild swimming, riding, canoeing and mountain biking are all popular picks around here (and there’s bike storage and a wash-down area on site to help with this last one).

Friendly owner Emma is on hand to point you in the direction of good places to go, and she’s happy for kids to build dens in the woods or get stuck in with helping to feed the smallholding’s animals (ponies, horses and chickens) or collect eggs from the free-roaming chickens.

    Comfy beds, dog friendly, wonderful hosts. Emma was so welcoming and has thought of everything! The facilities exceeded our expectations. The shower was amazing and the kitchen had everything you need and more! Our daughter loved helping to wash, brush and feed the ponies, and even decorated one! I’d highly recommend Little Bull Hill to any family looking for a break away from everyday life. There are supermarkets close by where you can pick up food to cook over the fire, and we had a great time canoeing on the river wye. The Cotswolds are fairly close by too. We took Emma’s advice and visited Stow on the Wold which is a lovely little town. All in all a great place to stay - 5*!!!

    Really spacious and private. All the facilities were well equipped, clean and stylish. The host Emma was fantastic, has thought of everything for a comfortable, hassle-free stay. We loved saying hello to the horses very time we went to and from the kitchen and our little girl loved collecting eggs from the hens and then having scrambled eggs for breakfast. A real hidden gem! Surpassed expectations.

    Fantastic two days away. Pitch was fantastic with a whole field, fire pit, seating area and lovely tent. Facilities are great, along with the host Emma. We will hopefully be back next year with the rest of the young family. Ideal for both.

    Everything. Our stay was perfect. Emma is a brilliant host and has thought of everything. She gave us so much time and spent so long with my five year old talking about horses. We loved meeting (and feeding and painting) the horses, looking after the chickens and collecting eggs, campfires, pizza making and of course the beautiful tent. It was a truly relaxing weekend, even with a five year old and one year old. We highly recommend it and can’t wait to return. Thank you so much, Emma.
