Pelerine Caravan and Camping
Ranked #4 of 5 Newent B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 September 2011

Our first time at Pelerine started well with Gail the owner welcoming us and showing us to our pitch. I then discovered I had made a schoolboy error in assuming my tent poles were in the tent bag.

Faced with a 4-5 hour round trip to fetch the missing poles whilst family sheltered from the rain (and boy did it rain last weekend) I went to find Gail and asked if they had a tourer stored that we could rent for the weekend.

Thankfully they did, only a 5 berth for the 6 of us but it was still very appreciated and our youngest (16 months) is small enough to come in with Mum and Dad still, Cosy but comfortable. One very embarrassed Dad had just been saved :)

The site is very clean and tidy with chimineas available for free, just ask Gail if your pitch doesn't have one, and wood plus kindling available for £6 for a large tub that easily lasted for an evening.

Cue many marshmallows being eaten by the kids. We were on the family field, there is also a quieter Adults only field. The family field as to be expected has noise from playing children from Dawn to Dusk. Not a problem for us or most of the people on the family field, there were a couple of miserable wotsits who complained about the noise of the children and games being played, but that's the nature of where they were camped and they did have the option of booking the quiet Adults only field.

Our kids and the dozen or so others from other camping families, aged from 1 to mid-teens, had a great time making friends, playing football, frisbee etc etc.

Newent is about 10 minutes drive away, the camp website claims there is a pub in walking distance, there is kind of, it's about 25-30 minutes walk away, a bit too far for us with 4 small children and a mobility impaired adult. There is a well stocked Budgens supermarket on Market Square in Newent, plenty of cheap marshmallows available :)

Facilities on site are adequate for the size of the site and clean. Although the kitchen is a little small, and there is no indoor communal area.
