Why stay here ...

Purlbrook Farm site is set on open pasture land with superb southerly views across the Frome Valley and distant westerly views over Hereford City to the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons beyond. The pitches are enclosed by woodland and coppice to the North & East and are on a gentle slope with levelled/terraced  hardstanding and grassed space for awnings etc. All are approached via a stoned road and each pitch has electrical hook up. There is a W. C. and usual waste disposal point.

The site is easily accessible being well set back from the A4103 and is a good base to explore Hereford City, with its Cathedral, Mappa Mundi Museum, etc. as well as the Wye Valley AONB. The popular market towns of Ledbury and Ross on Wye are nearby and the festival towns of Ludlow, Hay on Wye and Abergavenny are little more than half an hour away.

The site itself has direct access to local footpaths with glorious walks through mature deciduous woodland and over the local landmark of Shucknall Hill. There are three general stores within 2 miles, and pub/restaurant about the same distance. Hereford City is 5 miles away. The pasture field on the hill behind the site has a fire pit and barbecue area which visitors are welcome to use and enjoy even more extensive views over Herefordshire and The Welsh Marches.

Pleasant CL site with fantastic views !

Not easy to spot off the busy main road Small C&C sign, but could do with a sign saying " PURLBROOK FARM" Very rough and steep run up to the site area More suitable for Motor Homes , than caravans Pitches unven, but concrete blocks provides That said, it's a very pleasant site. Good views over the surrounding countryside.

Purlbrook Farm

Our first visit to this CL although probably not our last, we stayed 4 nights. I support all that has been said by the previous 5 reviews although, on arrival, we found the access track difficult to take slowly and it did rather shake up our motorhome. Caution is required when arriving and leaving the site. Forewarned, we travelled much more slowly on the descent and found it a much more comfortable ride. You definitely need levelling blocks on any of the five good sized pitches and nose down motorhomes might find it more advantageous to pitch nose in which may not give the best views over the Frome Valley from inside the van. Caravans should find levelling much easier. Once settled in the views and the fine weather were much appreciated as were the walks in the woods on Shucknall Hill which can be accessed from the back of the large field behind the site. Buzzards were abundant and although we did not see deer, their barks could be heard in the early morning from the site and they are clearly around.

Great Views

Have just spent a 5 day break at this site. Have a twin axle caravan but easy entrance. Care has to be taken when leaving the site directly onto the main road as it was busy. This could have been due to the fact that it was a diversion route for the closed A49. The pitches are all hard standing long enough to take the longest caravan. They are sloping but each pitch has blocks for the legs. The pitches are far enough away from the road with no noticeable road noise. Great views over the surrounding country side. The owners are very friendly and you were made welcome with the right amount of contact. TV reception for those who need it was good. Will visit again.

peaceful with view

Enjoyed a short 4 night stay in a motorhome, with pleasant views and peaceful time. The entrance is wide with a steepish climb on hardcore drive. Each bay is hardstanding with grassed area for awnings. It is on a slope so levelling blocks required. Tidy CL with short grass even leading up to a BBQ / fire pit area also useful as a dog walk. The toilet is rustic with emptying point and bins close at hand. A warm greeting from David and only light road noise during the day. Coffee & homemade cake in the nearby garden centre should see a return visit soon.

February in Herefordshire...

Second visit to this beautiful site, in February this time and despite recent rain, the gravel pitches meant setting up the van was nice and easy. It rained but we also had days of snow covered mountains set against a stunning blue sky. Great outdoor life, plenty of wildlife, peaceful and a very warm welcome. Highly recommended.
