This place is a canoe/kayak rental/shop 1st, car park 2nd and campsite 3rd. On entry to the car park, there are no signs for guidance on what to do other than 'park-up', numerous visits to the 'reception' area-come-car park-hut-come-ticket-place-come-canoe-sales-place had to be made, as parking-up for pitching looked like it wasn't quite the best option. Despite that, this is what...

This is a simply stunning camp site with an amazing location right next to the river between the two hand ferries and pubs. It's just such a shame that facilities let it down. We found the toilets & showers to be a little grubby and not looked after at all well. The area is beautiful though and the sites location...

We stayed for three nights in the four berth caravan. The caravan is a little old, a bit tired but clean and with a very comfortable bed. The chap showing us round took care to ensure we understood about the gas heater and pointed out the carbon mono and smoke sensors. The one minor problem we had with a collapsing...

Stayed three days in the 6 berth caravan. Very friendly welcome, and our party was shown everything we needed to know in the caravan itself,right down to how to make the gas safe at night. The caravan was old but clean. The site was kept tidy and was safe for the grandchildren to play under our watchful eye. All the...

We've just returned from two nights at Symonds Yat East. It's a small campsite, and we found the facilities to be just fine for a site of that size. Yes the toilet floor was muddy - but what would you expect from being in a field. The toilets were kept clean and had a plentiful supply of loo roll which...

We stayed the Sunday before the late May bank hol Monday through to the following Thursday. To say that it was busy on the Sunday would be an understatement - it seems that the lovely weather encouraged plenty of people to visit the area. We were able to park (just) in the campsite area, although not allowed to pitch tent...

This site is not a family friendly site. It has some staff that are okay but others that I would not let them look after goldfish. A £30 noise bond is not needed, staff on site should not need to tell adults that it is time to keep the noise down before 11pm! The wash facilities are not very good...

Whilst we value our customers opinions and feedback this review is not written in the best of spirits. We are a family friendly site and our noise bond policies do work! It is unfortunate that this customer deemed our policy to be UN-necessary. Whilst we agree that we should not have to tell adults to keep the noise down and...

I have just returned from the camp site after staying for the weekend in the 4-6 berth caravan. I cannot recommend this site enough.

Our 3rd visit to this site, this time for Kayak training. Paul, Ian and their staff are amazingly friendly and extremely professional.

“Keep away from the road and the shower block if possible.”
  • State of the loos by the third day of no cleaning: a bit grubby and no loo roll left.
  • Sinks in the ladies' loos. Would benefit from some soap, a hook or two, and more frequent cleani
