Pet Friendly Campsite in The Forest of Dean

We welcome dogs and cats of all sizes and we have direct access into the Forest of Dean where you can walk your pets for miles along forest tracks and trails.

On site, dogs MUST be on leads at all times.

The Forest of Dean is nature’s playground for people and pooches alike, so bring your four legged friend with you on your camping holiday in the Forest and explore what we think is one of the best places on earth.

  • We ask dog owners to please be responsible and consider others at all times.
  • Dogs must never be left on their own.
  •  Please do not allow your dog to constantly bark.
  • Please exercise your dogs off site as we are in the forest.
  • Dog waste bin on site.

Failure to observe these rules may result in being asked to leave. We do not accept dangerous breeds or dogs.

"This site is a lovely little gem. Very quite and great for walking your dog off site into the wooded area behind the site. Bev made us very welcome, she helped to get the TV on for my hubby to watch the football. There was nothing too much for her. She is a very hard working lady and will always help out where she can. The site is kept lovely and clean. What more can you ask".


Just got home after a brilliant week at this lovely little site, it's right next to the forest so great for exploring all day with 3 border collies and so peaceful at night, will definitely be going back


Just returned from a 3 night stay at this lovely quiet campsite. Bev couldn’t have been more helpful with advice and information about the local area and things to do. It’s an excellent location for dogs as there are many walks directly from the site, which is in a wonderful setting in the Forest of Dean. It is very clean and tidy, with good access, and the pitches have hard standing, and the one I had was level. I would certainly go again. There is also a very good Indian takeaway in Coleford that delivered.


Bev is such a lovely lady. Nothing is too much trouble and always has a smile on her face. Site is beautiful, small 10 spaces in all, one shower but never had a problem with it not being available. Lovely dog walk few mins from site. Such a lovely part of the country if you like walking. Plenty if pubs near by with lovely views.



Great site, owners are wonderful, the pitches very generous, there are fantastic walks right off the entrance to the site. So peaceful and the wildlife great. Whether you just want to sit and unwind, leisurely walks with the dog you couldn't stay anywhere better. Can't wait to come back and haven't even left yet.
