Why stay here ...

Tump Caravan site is a little piece of paradise in the Wye Valley.

Get the most out of your stay in the Wye Valley and Welsh borders.

The Wye Valley is a great place to enjoy cycling, canoeing, walking, rock climbing, painting or simply appreciating the superb flora and fauna to be found in this designated Area of Outstanding National Beauty.

The caravan campsite at The Tump provides ideal self-catering holidays accommodation for guests attending weddings, family reunions, festivals and sporting events in the nearby towns of Monmouth, Chepstow and Abergavenny. The glorious Tintern Abbey is well worth a visit and the village of Tintern has cafes, pubs and gift shops to visit.

Guests can enjoy a stroll around the farm and watch Marie feed the alpacas, sheep and chickens and the small lake in the grounds is a perfect spot for spending the day relaxing with a good book and a picnic. Walk or cycle around the winding village roads exploring Penallt Old Church and taking a lunch and cold beer at the Inn at Penallt in the village or The Boat Inn located on the riverside. In the evenings you can enjoy a BBQ on the veranda and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature all around you. The bus stop is at the end of the drive. Busses go to Monmouth and Chepstow.

The Tump

This is a lovely peaceful site with views over the valley. There is no road noise . All you can hear are the birds. We couldn't get any wifi or phone signal on site but that's not an issue when on holiday. The site is part sloping so levelling blocks are required and this is easily achieved. The roads to the site from the A40 are narrow in places but as there is very little traffic this didn't cause any problems. The site is grass with half of the field given over to a wild meadow. Very picturesque and wonderful for watching wildlife. Locally there are some good pubs serving food and Monmouth is only a short drive away. There is a bus stop one minute walk from the site with buses into Monmouth. This is a relaxing site with lovely views.

Ticks all the boxes

This CL is as close to perfection as we would need. Its location is in the heart of some amazing countryside and ease of access cannot be faulted. The tranquility is only surpassed by the high level of care and the incredibly warm welcome from the host. Most of the site is a wild flower/hay meadow but the grass pitches are well tended. Even the cuttings are removed - another tick. The usual facilities are all in one spot (near the gate). We had difficulty deciding whether to go out to see the local sites or stay and enjoy the peace of the CL. Definitely will be returning.

A pleasant stay

We had a very pleasant stay at The Tump during a sunny spell towards the end of March. The easy to access site is sloping but we levelled our tourer easily. The ground was fairly dry during our visit so we didn't experience the soft ground and mud that the previous reviewer found. This is a basic grass only CL at the top of a large field with views over the surrounding countryside but has 16amp EHU along with the usual CL water & waste requirements. Pleasant owners who gave us good information on the local eateries etc. and for motorhomers the CL is near a bus stop with regular services throughout the day into Monmouth & Chepstow. The nearest shops & supermarket are 10 minutes drive away in Monmouth.

Not for Wintery Stays

We had booked in for 3 nights, but after one night we had to move on. The site is on a very sloping field , we did know there was some slope. However, the weather had created a very soft, slippery surface, covered in huge muddy molehills. We have a 7.5 metre unit and even with our large ramps, it was impossible to be stable. The site, in our opinion , was unusable at this time and not a pleasant experience. However, at another time, minus the mud, I'm sure it's pleasant enough. The owners were reasonable about the situation. However, in our opinion, this is not a £15 a night site by any stretch of the imagination. In the middle of nowhere, which is fine, but no real facilities. Plus only half the field was mown. Disappointing.

A perfect spot in the Wye Valley

A lovely quiet site within easy walking distance of the River Wye. We only booked three nights on our first visit but would happily visit again. We enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Boat Inn by the river and an equally excellent evening meal at the Inn at Penallt. The site owner was very welcoming and when we had problems with our caravan he went out of his way to help us.
