DOWARD PARK NEWS
We are now closed for the season and reopen on Friday 3rd April.
New toilet and pot washing facilities are finished and ready to use.
There is a minimum of 2 or 3 nights stay in peak season.
We are a small family campsite and welcome well-behaved dogs. We are located in the Wye Valley near Symonds Yat, in-between the historic market town of Ross on Wye in Herefordshire and the tradition country town of Monmouth. We are just inside the England border next to the Forest of Dean and only half a mile from Wales with the border being the river. Due to our peaceful, secluded woodland location, and our size, we can only accept group bookings of up to 3 pitches. As we are located in the forest, campers are not permitted to have open fires or fire pits. You are welcome to have charcoal or gas BBQs.
The Wye Valley
With the Wye Valley being on the doorstep of the campsite, there are many interesting sites to see. The river and Symonds Yat are within walking distance, including the pubs along the river and the famous Symonds Yat rapids. Also a short stroll from the site you can be at King Arthurs Caves or the Seven Sisters Rocks.
Symonds Yat is famous for its picturesque position on the River Wye, also well known for canoeing, bird watching, walking and climbing. All can be accompanied by a stop in one of the riverside pubs. Symonds Yat Rock is also known for its spectacular views across the 3 counties, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire. Peregrine Falcons can be seen from the viewpoint as well.
We are a small family friendly site, that is able to accommodate tents, trailer tents, camper vans and motorhomes (up to 23ft long). We have both hard standing and grass pitches, and have electric hook up available for all types of pitch. Seasonal touring caravan pitches are available (please enquire for more info). We cannot accommodate touring caravans for short stays.
