Christchurch campsite, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire
The Royal Forest of Dean occupies an area of approximately 204 square miles in the western part of Gloucestershire and is home to twenty million trees including oak, beech, ash, birch and holly. The stunning landscape and spectacular scenery has inspired many people over the years, from playwrights and poets to artists, and, of course, the hundreds of campers who return year after year.
The lovely campsite of Christchurch is set in beautiful surroundings, accessible to well-marked forest trails, Symonds rock and the River Wye. Perfect for campers of all abilities, the campsite provides a children’s playground, an on site shop, cafe and bike hire. From the River Wye it is possible to cycle into Monmouth along the river on a flat cycle trail which is perfect for all the family and all levels of ability.
Take a trip to nearby Symonds Yat where you will be treated to fabulous views of the river, go on a riverside walk, or for the more adventurous, canoe down the river by visiting one of the many local activity centres.
For even more excitement, campers can visit the Go Ape! high ropes course deep in the Forest, just a fifteen minute drive from the campsite, or try the many Ranger Activities available on the campsite. There are also several highly recommended pubs in the area including Newland’s The Ostrich Inn and The Saracen’s Head at Symonds Yat East.
Christchurch is a popular campsite, particularly during peak season, so advanced booking is suggested to avoid disappointment.
