Hi Folks,
We can easily park a dozen vans overnight. We are still refurbing so there is no outside tap at the moment but I will sort out a hosepipe from elsewhere in the building to get water laid on.

Cheers Geoff
We've been out this weekend just got back.
Once we get a count of those who would like to come we will let you know. A couple of us have been chatting this week end and would like to talk to you about using your field in early May as we have a couple of birthdays happening :)
It will be good to see some old faces and a couple of new ones as well :)

Make your own fire pit with the drum out of a disused washing machine and reverse the pully to make a stand, works brilliantly.

Just spoken to Geoff the pub owner and he is 100% ok with 5th and 6th March. 10 vans, dogs kids and AJ's are all welcome to arrive Friday and stay on the carpark Saturday.

Nic says he is a fab guy who used to have a MH but sold it to fund the pub so knows exactly what we need :D

I'm sure there is room. I know they said 10 would fit in an earlier post and I think the list was only 5 or 6 long anyway.
I've just got home from work, and getting ready now.

Hi Everyone

Is there room for two more motorhomes???

We are looking for somewhere to go tonight that has a pub in stumbling distance with food. It will be our first time wild camping!!!!

If someone could let me know that would be great.

M :)

We are there now, rooms a bit tight because of visitors to the abbey but once they go at about 4pm the carparks are empty, loads of room the landlords(s) and lady are great very hospitable, even fitted an outside tap specially for us on Friday :) :)
We are all going in for a meal tonight so come along and join us.

I popped along to meet them and they all have rather smart mobile homes on wheels with insulation, double glazing and heating so will be warm and snug - in contrast to my van with none of these luxuries and frozen condensation while camping in -7deg on Sunday & Monday!

I know most of them,so tight that they wont even switch a light on for heat though.:D:D Did you see that AJ fella, Did he have a tooth on a piece of string round his neck,You know like shark hunters when they kept a tooth as a trophy when they caught a big fish. As he knocked my toof out last time we met,I wont mess with him again.:D:D:D:D:D

Hope you had a good weekend guys and dolls.Lets see the pics.

I'll have you know this was a cultured affair not a drunken frenzy;)

TBH Friday night me 'n' AJ were a little unwell due to travel stress and and a bad case of Dalwinnie poisoning and forgot all about photos. Not sure about Saturday night we had to put the kids to bed early so missed any fun during the meal :eek:

This is a fantastic spot and they could not be more hospitable, the beer and food are both good, the Butty Bach was very drinkable, he has plenty of space and plans to create purpose built parking spots for MH's and vans.

There are plenty of good interesting walks from the carpark some easy some not so easy as a few of us found out.

We are planing to return on the weekend of May 1st. Its AJ's birthday and mrsBiggirafe the following weekend more later on that as I'm sure AJ will be starting a gathering thread soon.

I would add at least 1 night here with a drive down to Chepstow castle 4 miles down the road, you can also park in the car park at chepstow overnight or pretty much anywhere back in the forest of dean. Hope you have a great time :)
