Why stay here ...
Brookside is under new ownership, we have spent some time updating the services and preparing the pitches and we are now looking forward to welcoming visitors old and new. We are a family run CL that is family and dog friendly (dogs by prior arrangement only) in Newland, a small village on the edge of the Forest of Dean which is an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Newland village boasts an award winning pub ’The Ostrich Inn’ just a 2 minute walk from the site which is adjacent to the bus stop and All Siants Church traditionally known as the Cathedral of the Forest.
Our caravanning field has generous pitches cut between the wildflower meadow grass offering privacy and tranquility, we also have a hard standing area available on the yard if the weather an issue. We have a path cut around the wildflower field which is great for walking dogs on site and we also have a cut picnic/play area at the end of the field. The Valley Brook runs right through the field and you will quite often see the nesting and visiting ducks and Canadian geese that we feel privileged to have visit us. We value and want to encourage the wildlife here at Brookside so any well behaved visiting dogs on site must be kept on a lead at all times.
We are conveniently situated 2 miles from Coleford, 3.7 miles from the historic market town of Monmouth and 9 miles from Ross on Wye all of which are rich in history, have amazing coffee shops and restaurants, many boutique shops and various supermarkets. There is plenty to do for those that want to stay local and explore the many activities the area has to offer.
For those that want to walk or cycle there are tracks and paths directly from the site into the forest where you might encounter some of the local wildlife from ducks to deer and wild boar.
For those that want to travel further afield by car or bus there are many activities to consider:
- Cannop Cycle Centre
