Apple Orchard - Camping in the beautiful Severn Valley

Apple Orchard Campsite is an independent family run caravan and camping site, situated in a rural location at the South East corner of the Forest of Dean, set within the Severn Vale Plain. Adjacent to the campsite is a traditional Gloucestershire apple orchard.

The site has wonderful views of the surrounding hills of the Forest of Dean and the famous May Hill crowned with its distinctive row of pine trees with a short walk to the River Severn and it’s famous Severn Bore.

The site offers a central heated amenity block with free hot showers, disabled and toddler wet / changing room. There is a self-contained washing up, Chemical and Grey water disposal area.

We have 60 pitches with electric hook ups on a level site.

Apple Orchard gives you the option to stay in one of our luxury Wooden  pods with electric and heating also available are beds and bunk beds. All you have to bring is your bedding and cooking facilities.

We have an on site shop selling basic camping conveniences and a café.

The site is located in a rural location with walks and cycling. It is a short distance from link roads to the Forest of Dean, Cheltenham, Ross on Wye and of course, Gloucester with its famous cathedral and docks.

Adjacent to the site is the Walmore Common which holds a recognised Special Protection Area. It is an area of damp grassland and ditches composed of clay soils overlying the only significant area of peatland in Gloucestershire. The Common is subject to regular flooding and this creates suitable conditions for regular wintering of wildfowl and Bewick Swans. Ideal for those who enjoy bird watching.

Meet Dennis!

Dennis the DonkeySay hello to the latest member of the team. Dennis the Donkey has joined us for the 2022 season and he looks forward to welcoming you at Apple Orchard.

Dennis came to us from Usk. He is one year old and is a lovely gentle lad. He can a be a little mischievous, and loves a gentle pat on his neck.  He has also been joined by two females called Dottie and Daisy. Both are a little more reserved than Dennis, but they are all the best of friends. They are out in the orchard quite often and we ask you to just give them a bit of space and not to give them food treats, else we will have to call him Dave! So please don’t feed them.

We have built them a new stable and we are sure they will love their new life at the campsite.
