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 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 at its 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, Gloucester with its famous Cathedral, docks, Cheltenham and Ross on Wye.

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 clayey 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.

During the last lockdown Dave has been very busy. All the lodges have been tiled which was rather a muddy job on the field. He has also housed the bin area which we have been trying to do for a long time.

Hedges have been replaced as well as fencing and a tidy up in the Apple Orchard. We lost a few trees in the storms so have replaced them with local cider apple varieties.

At present all our ducks and chickens 🐓 are locked away due to the bird 🤧 but as soon as this is lifted we will be bringing them down to the campsite. We have bought some houses for them, not erected yet, but you will have to wait and see our Duckingham Palace.

So let’s see how lockdown goes, bookings being taken from 12th April.

To make a booking you need to first fill in the booking form and I will follow this up as still working from home.

Hope to see you all soon
Carolyn and Dave

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.

Donkey Dennis came from Usk. He is one year old and is a lovely gentle lad. He can a little head shy but is getting better every day.  Neck rubs are his favourite but we ask you not to give him food treats else we will have to call him Dave! So please don’t feed him.

We currently are building him a new stable and we are sure he will love his new life at the campsite.
