Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ablution block was spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water. Showers ran with tokens bought from the Reception and one token was enough to have a good shower. Plenty of toilet paper in the toilets. The pitch was nice and flat and we pitched two tents next to each other. So peaceful and quiet at night with the birds singing in the morning to wake us up. Fire pits available to hire for a night or two meaning you didn't have to bring one from home. Plenty of fresh drinking water available as well as washing up facilities. All in all, a wonderful, peaceful camping trip with children and grandchildren all having a whale of a time.

We stayed here for a few nights as a family. The site is dog friendly, there are lovely clean toilet and shower blocks although at times we did have to wait in line, although we did stay at a really busy time. There are signs up everywhere to remind you of social distancing and we felt safe as a family staying here. The owner is very friendly, We stayed without electric and camped in the middle of the site which seemed to be the latest area, some parts were quite sloped. The showers were lovely and warm and were run on a token system which for me was plenty long enough, my teenagers didn't agree! The site is surrounded by trees and there is a lovely lake to walk around at the bottom of the site. The Globe Inn is within a 20 minute stroll which we can highly recommend.I would recommend this site if you like peace and quiet and a no frills holiday. We would return again if in this area! There is an emphasis on recycling which is brilliant. Lovely clean site. :)

Nestled above the charming town of Lydney, the campsite in question offers an idyllic setting for nature lovers and adventurers alike. Its strategic location not only provides breathtaking views but also serves as a gateway to exploring the surrounding beauty. The camp is connected to an extensive network of walkways, leading through dense, enchanting forests that promise serene walks and the chance to immerse oneself in the tranquility of nature. This network of paths offers direct access to scenic landscapes and the hidden gems of the area, making it a perfect starting point for those eager to explore on foot.
For those looking to venture further, the campsite's proximity to a junction of roads means that several noteworthy locations are within easy reach. A short drive can take you to the quaint villages of Bream, Hewelsfield, and Brockweir, each with its own unique charm and history. Tintern, with its majestic abbey ruins, is also nearby, offering a glimpse into the past amidst stunning natural beauty. Additionally, the campsite is conveniently located just 13 minutes from Chepstow, and the bridge to the impressive cities of Bristol and Bath and the picturesque Cotswolds, making it an ideal base for exploring a wider area as well as Wales!
The campsite itself is a testament to privacy and meticulous care. With clean, well-maintained toilet and shower facilities. The host's accommodating and friendly demeanor further enhances the camping experience, ensuring a pleasant and hassle-free stay. We were looking for a peaceful retreat in nature as well as a convenient hub for exploring the riches of the area, this campsite above Lydney in the Forest of Dean is in our opinion a stand out and exceeded all expectations.

Good:
Great location for access to River Wye, Forest of Dean and local towns e.g. Chepstow. The Globe as a good local pub less than a mile away. There were also free picnic tables.

Average:
We went end of May and paid £30 per night for a normal pitch - a bit on the high side given facilities available but understand that site are probably trying to recoup losses through lockdown. Unfortunately there was then a few extra costs to take into consideration.

2 showers, 2 toilets and 1 disabled wetroom with toilet and shower. This served a site which looked like around 20-30 pitches but queuing didn't seem to be a huge issue.

Bad(-ish):
Was a little disappointed that we were forced up hire their firepits for £10 p/n if we wanted to have a fire. This did include a bag of logs, though. We were told hiring was the only option as some peoples fire pits had been poor quality and left marks on the grass, but there was no option to show them yours was able to protect the grass.

Showers and dryer were also charged at £0.50 per time.

We really struggled to find a campsite for this Summer Holidays (as I’m sure lots of people have!) we booked Beanhill without knowing much about it; just that it was in a good location and had availability! We went out everyday so we weren't at the campsite much - there wasn't anything to do there anyways...
The campsite was small, and quite sloped which was a bit of a pain for sitting at the table in the tent!
The toilet / shower block was okay, only 3 of each which I don’t think was enough - and they could also have done with more regular cleaning during this wonderful pandemic we are facing.
More sinks would definitely be handy too, and not all clumped together.
I was shocked when we checked in that you have to pay 50p for a shower token for a 3 minute shower - which by the way only actually lasted 2 1/2 minutes!!
We paid £42 per night (covid inflation maybe?) and this was the most expensive yet nothing of a campsite we have ever stayed at.
It was nice and quiet, tho there were some pretty weird animals that came out at night sniffling around the tent!
So if you’re wanting to pay a lot to not get a lot, I’d recommend. And have your 50p’s ready!

Bit of a last minute trip and super lucky to find BeanHill. Loads of positives! Clean, mostly flat, open spaces, and very beautiful all with a super nice vibe. Owners and punters all super friendly. And pretty decent value for money. Will definitely go back!

Slight downsides: Could do with more toilets... We were told electric hook up wasn’t available but at least one electric pitch wasn’t being used while we were there. Some loud groups of younger people, which wasn’t ideal with a toddler (but party didn’t go on super late so wasn’t a big deal). Drone flying - one person was flying a drone quite respectfully, but another was flying one very annoyingly. Buzzing back and forth over our caravan for ages... I really think drones should be banned at campsites.

When we booked this site we were told that they had reduced their occupancy rate to fifty percent and increased their nightly tariff as a response to the Covid restrictions. We in no way had any issue with this.

On arrival we discovered that the site seemed fairly full ~ we really could not see how they would have accommodated twice as many people. The toilet block was a communal men’s and women’s block and you had to pay for the showers. There was no mention of this on the website. The toilet block contained two showers, two toilets, two sinks and a family cubical with a shower and toilet. This was not enough to cope with the people who were on site at the so say fifty percent occupancy rate so the thought staying on the site when it was running at one hundred percent occupancy was terrifying.

The website says that the site is gently sloping. We felt that this was an understatement and that very definitely sloping was more accurate.

The site was in a great location but we were in all other ways disappointed with our stay here and would not return.

For the cost of this site, i found it insulting that the owners would charge your for nearly everything else. Wood, fire pits, kindling, a 3 minute shower, guests on site, gazebos and many others. Don't forget to read the small print. Never been to such a money grabbing camp site. AND don't even imagine complaining, as this will lead to a torrent of abuse and intimidation by the owners. They came up to our campsite where my family were staying, who ranged in age from 2-77 and completely lost it, swearing, threatening to throw us off site and ruined the end of our family holiday. Luckily we went to another one after who were excellent. Would never go here again or recommend it.

We have just returned from a lovely visit at beanhill farm,campsite.
The owners theresa and Stuart are so Freindly and kind,they always go the extra mile.
The campsite itself is peaceful with beautiful countryside surroundings.there aren't 100s of squashed pitches,so there's plenty of space between campers.
The toilet and shower blocks are spotless,and they even supply breakfast boxes at a reasonable cost.
All in all a wonderful relaxing campsite in a beautiful part of the UK.

We are experienced campers and love our camping experiences. We simply asked to buy more fire wood, we wouldn't have minded being refused but we were not expecting the barrage of abuse from the owner who came to our pitch and swore at us in front of family members including young children. It made us all feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. I believe any misunderstanding can be sorted out in a tolerant manner. In addition to this the campsite charges for showers, 50p for 3 minutes and they were cold!! We will not visiting this campsite again.
