    There is a campsite (very basic) at Symonds Yat (where the boats go from and the canoe/boat hire is). This may or may not be open, but I have no contact details I am afraid.

    Good site about 2km away towards colford. Run by forest holidays and camping & caravan club. I think they are open all year, very nice walk through the forest to symonds yat and good pub just up the road

    Hi

    We stayed a couple of nights on the Forest Holiday site

    Bracelands/Christchurch Not the most poshest of sites nor the levelest but it has a pretty woodland walk to Symonds Yat ( about half hour) and plenty more good forest walks about £15 or 16 per night with hook up.

    Alan and Lynda

    0845 130 8224 for booking

    Stayed at Wye Valley a few times when canoeing at Symonds Yat.

    Was camping rather than in a MH.

    Site is reasonable and never had any problems there.

    Wonderful camp site called Whitemead at Parkend which is about 10minutes drive from Symonds Yat. They also have lovely chalet, indoor swimming Pool and right on edge of beautiful Forest. If you go there I hope you have a fantastic time and whilst in that area try and visit Mallards Pike on road from Parkend to Blakeney. Not to be missed. Safe travels and keep smiling :BigGrin: Nannyjan

    Sorry if this is going off on a bit of a tangent, but having stayed at the Setthorns Forest Holiday site in the New Forest I thought it might also be worth mentioning that if you're self contained and don't need EHU or hard standing the prices typically drop to £8/£9. Add £1 for Fridays/Saturdays, and subtract £2 if you're solo (ta!)*. But you need to be a C&CC or Forest Holidays member otherwise +£3.50.

    * - the FH website didn't apply the solo discount when I tried to book, so I ended up phoning the 0845 number on a mobile, which cancelled out some of the saving :Sad:
