Recommended Campsites

  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

Beeches Farm Campsite

Just outside Chepstow. Very relaxed, lots of space and an awesome view over the Wye Valley. Great hopping off point for a number of castles and other sites of antiquity as well as access to the forest and river. Steel wheel Firepits provided and sacks of wood on sale at reception. Only down side is the price of a shower (£1 for 4 minutes!), also, the wife was not overly keen on the large number of house guests we acquired in a long weekend ;)

Hi all me and my girlfriend met up with some mates over the last week at a new little known wild site just outside of beamish county durham.
it's set in 30 acres of pine woodland, small controlled fires are welcome, the site has car parking, a portaloo and running water just pull up and pitch!
The open air museum is a short walk away with plenty of mixed woodland to forage in and explore.
Prices are £8 per person per night and dry nets of firewood/charcoal are available on site
the site is open all year and will be hosting lots of bushcraft meet ups and demos through out the coming months

Vallis Veg - Only 6 pitches, each completetly separate from each other. From my pitch i couldnt see another tent, the nearest pitch to mine was 70m away in a different field. No parking next to your pitch, you have to use their wheelbarrow and carry your stuff to your pitch but worth it for the views, lack of road noise and isolation. Fires allowed, compost loo, water point and sink but no showers and £7pp/pn.

This. If your within range of shropshire

Huge uncrowded field with birch and oak wood at the side and other woods close. Remote basic tap toilet and washroom, no fires on the grass, but I'm sure if you where responsible ie dug a good place they'd let you. All at the base of the long mynd

I'm a newbie but I can add a couple to this thread

Takoda camping Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria http://takodacamping.webs.com/
Run by Paul and Marie who are very friendly. They host a lot of adventure bike meets and Paul puts on a communal fire near the amenity block for arranged groups. Folks who get too cold can take their sleeping bags into the amenity block. There is a stream on the west side next to a sheep farm. Some fantastic views. 10 minute walk into Kirkby Stephen for pubs and food and the landlord of one lets you order your takeaway and eat it in his pub

Jeugstadion in Ypres, Belgium

Stayed here when visiting WW1 sites around Ypres. 5 mins from the Menin Gate and the town. Very peaceful campsite with an Aldi just up the road. Really looking forward to going back there.

The Lone Wolf campsite in Wales

We just spent a week there and we loved it. The woodland camping area is in a river valley looks very nice. Fire making is allowed, tarps are ok too. On the farm (5-15 min walk from the woods) you have shower, toilets, kitchen with fridge, kettle and micro and electricity.
The farm is in between Swansea (15 min drive) and the Brecon Beacons (35 min to Pen Y Fan).
Ian the site supervisor friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable. All in all we had a good time there and I recommended to anybody.
