This campsite was ok, but we did not think that the tidiness of the amenities was not up to the usual standard. Whether this was down to it being the end of the season, who knows. The area itself was really good and the New Inn pub nearby was excellent.

We were made very welcome on arrival. We were able to choose our pitch.

This review is for Bracelands - Forest of Dean

We were made very welcome on arrival. We were able to choose our pitch. Site was very quiet and the view was spectacular. We cycled out through the forest on one day and walked around Symonds Yat another day. Walking to the pub was rather dark but a good torch is all you need. The Dog and Muffler is a lovely one to visit. A beautiful setting and nice and quiet at this time of year.

Site appears very large, but only the hard standings are flat, in general.

Site appears very large, but only the hard standings are flat, in general. Noise from selfish people with barking dogs was unbearable, may as well have stayed at the local traveller's site for more peace and quiet. Won't ever be going back.

This review is for Bracelands - Forest of Dean

Firstly I would like to say what a warm welcome I received despite being an an hour late on a Sunday evening! Very understanding with a c'est last vie' attitude. The site and facilitlies were clean and we'll laid out , typical of the usual standards at at many C & C sites. In the forest so peaceful with good views of the countryside. Great for visiting the local sights but be very careful on local roads, observe the warnings as there is one that is very narrow and single lane. Well worth the visit.
