Alan Rogers Review

Bracelands Camping & Caravanning Club site is just waiting to welcome you. Located on the edge of the Forest of Dean, Bracelands is open all year. As soon as you enter the grounds of Bracelands site, you will be immediately impressed with its size and ability to encompass you in the wonderful landscapes of the forest. Look out across the fields in any direction and you will be rewarded with superb views of the surrounding woodlands, made up of majestic oaks, stunning copper beech, and tall pine trees, as they climb and fall in line with the land’s rolling hills. The site has 520 grass or hard standing pitches (some seasonal) most with electricity hook-up point. Glamping pods and safari tents are also available to hire.

N.B. Camping in the Forest is a partnership between the Forestry Commission and the Camping & Caravanning Club.

With all the space on offer, there are plenty of opportunities for children to play and explore their natural surroundings. Or simply walk to the edge of the site and immerse yourself in the Forest of Dean and the miles of walking and cycling tracks it offers. Bracelands is a stone's throw from many of the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley’s greatest attractions including, less than two miles away, the famous Symonds Yat Rock. It is a perfect spot for lunch, so do not forget your picnic. You can also spend the day at Monmouth town, which is close by to the Forest of Dean. This traditional county town is full of history and a great way to spend the day.

Location

Please be aware that sat nav is likely to give you a route that involves travelling to the site via Symonds Yat. Roads in this area are unsuitable for large vehicles, so please do not follow this route if you are towing or in a motorhome. From the North: from the M5 at Junction 8 take the M50 which leads onto the A40. Continue until you reach Monmouth. At Monmouth traffic lights turn left in to the A4136 and go over the old stone bridge. At the first mini roundabout bear left, at the second mini roundabout continue straight ahead. You will be on this road for approx. 6 miles. After Staunton village you will come to a junction with traffic lights called Berry Pike. Continue straight ahead here. Shortly after this junction is Berry Hill staggered crossroads. Turn left at the crossroads on Grove Road and continue for about a mile. You will now be approaching a crossroads sign with the brown camping/caravan symbol. Turn left at the crossroads into Bracelands Drive leading to Broom Hill and after a few hundred yards you will see the reception. On turning left into Bracelands Drive please be careful not to overshoot this junction as the next turning on the left leads to Symonds Yat and is unsuitable for large vehicles.
