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.

Stunning views, great little site

Purlbrook Farm
Stayed here for two nights earlier this year. Owner very friendly and helpful, especially when we were having difficulties with our motor mover trying to site our van. Pitches are quite sloping, but plenty of blocks supplied. The views across the hills are stunning, could sit and look at them all day. Sadly there is quite a bit of traffic noise, but it didn't spoil our stay. Toilet kept clean and tidy. The track up to the site is quite lumpy, but fine if you take it slowly. In a fantastic location to explore Hereford and the surrounding areas. Would definitely stay again.

The views are mesmerising...

Purlbrook Farm
Stayed here several times in our caravan, favourite CL, a hidden gem. Never tire of the view. The entrance track is a bit bumpy but it's a CL, I've known much worse, just take it steady. The track and gravel pitches should be good for all year round visits. The owner has thoughtfully provided leveling blocks and there's a decent loo. Plenty of Buzzards and owls at night. Can't wait to come back. Thank you.

Amazing views

Purlbrook Farm
Lovely little site. Set above and back from the A4103 so very little traffic noise. Hard standing pitches that are sloped but a chock sorts that out. Big field to the back that leads out in to a woodland walk. There’s also a BBQ firepit for guests to use.

Pleasant CL site with fantastic views !

Purlbrook Farm
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.

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.
