Very handy for Hereford

We stayed here in early November and as we're a heavy motorhome we requested some sort of hardstanding to save their grass. They very kindly earmarked a spot by the barn, with an electric point and handy tap, rather than on the CL field. Mr and Mrs Watkins were very helpful too. Apart from the trains (which aren't too horrendously often or loud) this is a very tranquil site. There is a very handy walk/cycle ride to Hereford, about 2 1/2 miles - turn right out of the farm, then right up the lane. At the railway bridge you'll find the off road path to the right and it's well signposted into town past a housing and industrial estates. You can walk down the main road too but we found this boring, noisy with all the traffic and a bit of a drag uphill. Hereford is a little gem, much bigger than we'd thought, and the Mappa Mundi (medieval map) and Cathedral are well worth a visit. We also had a nice walk southwards across the fields and over the main road to the hillside, searching for geocaches.

Peace, but still close to the city.

A quiet site in beautiful surroundings, although the train line did have late night freight that tended to stop nearby and have a noisy shunt; not a major issue. Great for the dogs. Grass was very much in need of a cut! Access via a narrow lane as is usual with many CLs; not a problem except for the largest of rigs. I felt that for £15 a night (with awning) the chemical disposal could be a little more than removing a manhole cover and chucking the waste down the sewer; again not a major issue. Great walks locally, particularly the cycle route into Hereford, a very easy 3 miles to the mighty Wye Valley Brewery 'The Barrels'; not to be missed, beer lovers. Also tried out the Varga Tavern (2 miles); a community local the HPA and Butty Bach (worth a look). We'll be back.

A Wonderful Stay

We stayed at Ashley Farm CL in July and had a wonderful time.  We were warmly welcomed and Elwyn could not have been more thoughtful, even offering to move the sheep from the adjacent find if they were making too much noise.  As it happened they weren't.  The site has everything you need, a flat pitch, dog friendly, peace and tranquility, (the two carriage railway trains running nearby are very quiet), good access to water, waste disposal etc and recycling as well.   We are keen walkers and there are great walks in this area with the Wye Valley being very close and it is only a short drive to the Black Mountains.  You can see our walks and places we visited whilst staying here on our blog www.twodogsandanawning.co.uk

A great CL

An excellent site with the usual facilities, I would agree with a previous review regarding the proximity of the railway line. Close to the city of Hereford, either by car or public transport. My only adverse comment is that there were no recycling facilities available during our stay.

Weekend away

This is a lovely quiet site with very friendly hosts. We stayed for a weekend with friends who stayed at their B&B (also recommended). The proximity of the railway line should not put folks off as you are hardly aware its there. All grass site but perfectly level. Ease of access to facilities and electric points all round the site.
