been going to Christchurch since a very young girl (now for 30yrs) excellent for family hol or long weekend. Seen many new managers over the years but this year all focus on log cabins would like to tell new Managers this is the 'ROYAL' Forest of Dean, not a flag insight on the buildings, not a cake or flag in shop. Thank goodness campers/caravaners got out the bunting otherwise you would have missed the Jubilee down in the Christchurch camp site at The Royal Forest of Dean.Read moreLess
"Have been going to both these sites for a few…"
Have been going to both these sites for a few years now, Christchurch has a good play area, and your often able to camp quite close to it. There's also a shop that sells pretty much everything you may need and a few luxurys besides, showers and loos are fine, plenty of taps and dish washing facilities, few areas of the site are gently sloping but we've never had a problem finding a fairly flat pitch.
Bracelands, I prefer this site, it has no play area but is more spacious so lots of room to play. Facilities are fine, no complaints, I tend to shower late morning though (after I've had a lie in) as the showers are often cleaned about 11am <lazy camper> ;-). One again a slightly sloping site, but as long as your feet are down and your head is up you'll be fine!
Lots of lovely walks nearby to suit all abilities, loads to do, Symonds Yat and the Rock are places we return year after year.
Local town is Coleford 5 mins away from the site, there are plenty of supermarkets, takeaways etc (so no need to pay the extortionate prices of the site shop).
Happy camping!Read moreLess
