Our Wigwam® site has superb views across the River Severn and offers a fantastic base to experience the unique and fascinating heritage, spectacular and varied landscapes, warm and friendly hospitality and all the activities which the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean have to offer.
The Royal Forest of Dean is one of England's few remaining ancient woodlands, covering 27,000 acres of woodland and was designated as a National Forest Park in 1938. Whether you're interested in walking, horse riding and cycling or something more adventurous such as mountain boarding, abseiling, mountain biking and scuba diving - you'll find it in the forest area.
For walkers, there are numerous way marked routes and footpaths throughout the area including the long distance trails of Offa's Dyke Path and the Wye Valley Walk, as well as several circular routes through historic market towns, picturesque villages and some of the most scenic parts of the forest.
The forest is perfect for cyclists. The Family Cycle Path runs through the heart of the forest, safely away from traffic, while a dedicated off-road area behind Pedalabikeaway Cycle Hire is popular with mountain bikers.
Historic Chepstow with its own museum - and home to the first stone castle to be built in Britain following the Norman conquest is only just over a mile from the Wigwam® cabins. Other nearby attractions include the ruins of Tintern Abbey, originally built in 1131 - the ancient market town of Monmouth with its famous 13th century gated bridge - and the impressive Roman amphitheatre at Caerleon, one of the most important military sites in Britain under the Roman Empire.
