General

  • Small, peaceful site just outside Sutton St Nicholas
  • A 15-minute drive from Hereford; buses stop just by the site
  • Footpaths all around the site; pub a 10-minute walk away

Heading for Herefordshire and hoping for plenty of peace, places to walk and perhaps a pub trip or two? Camping in Frankland, just under a mile from Sutton St Nicholas, could well be the place to pitch up.

This is a petite rural site with views out over neighbouring farmland and woods, and easy access to country lanes for rambling along (with a canine companion if you happen to have one who’d like to come along on your break). Handily for those whose walks aren’t complete without the reward of a pint at the end, it also happens to have a pub a 10-minute stroll away serving up a fine array of drinks and meals.

If you’re more in the mood for alfresco eats, there are a few barbecues and firepits that are free to use (although they may have to be rotated if more than one group want to use them); forward planners can stash their food in the guest fridge or freezer until it's time to cook. There’s a play area and free wifi connection on site to keep the nippers busy while prep takes place, and it’s a short walk to the toilet/shower block and washing-up area to get yourselves and your kit all cleaned up too.

Once you’ve strolled along local paths, set your sights a little further afield for walks in the Black Mountains and Malvern Hills or canoe trips along the River Wye from Hereford, 15 minutes’ drive away. Buses kindly stop just outside the site for folk who’d like to leave the car behind for the day.

Please note this is a quiet site that is not suitable for young groups.

Good value site, just keep the number of pitches down07/26/2021

  • Liked: 

    Nice enclosed field, fairly level. Pitches available with shade. Fire pits to borrow for camp fires.

    Two good quality clean shower /toilet cubicles plus an extra separate toilet which had a "family" toilet seat (drop down toddler seat) - no need to carry around a potty!

    Large fridge and an undercounter freezer, plus a microwave and kettle.

    Swing set and trampoline was very popular with the younger members of our group.

    At the moment only alternate pitches are being booked out which made them a good size. We were travelling as a small group of families and were able to effectively take over one end of the field with our tents /gazebo /games.

    Disliked: 

    Hot water was scalding hot to the extent you could only use it to wash hands in the sinks that had a mixer tap. Initially no soap was provided although the owner did get some when asked.

    Some of the pitches were bumpy / holey so you need to look carefully before you pitch.

    If all the pitches were being used they would be far too narrow to maintain safe spacing between larger tents and the site would not have the same relaxed feel.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. We are using every other pitch to give a distance, unless you are in the same bubble.
Soap and towels used to be provided but with pandemic it was deemed unsafe.
We will be putting up a warning about the hot water and get it looked at.

Directions

Local attractions

Start your hols by heading in to Hereford (15 minutes’ drive) for historic attractions including the cathedral, Black and White House Museum and the ancient scrolls of the Mappa Mundi exhibition. Continue your day by paddling a canoe down the River Wye or getting a thirst on at the Cider Museum (followed by a pint of the good stuff in a local pub, of course).

For more town-based trips, head to Hay-on-Wye for all things book-related, aim for Abergavenny and its many foodie treats or wend your way to Worcester for racing, cricket and another handsome cathedral. All are around 45 minutes away by car.

If you’d rather keep it country, fill your days with animal encounters at Newbridge Farm Park (20 minutes’ drive), Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo (35 minutes) and the International Centre for Birds of Prey (40 minutes), or plan visits to Hampton Court Castle (10 minutes) and Eastnor Castle (half an hour).
