Camping at Whitney Bridge is peaceful and special - you could be sleeping alongside kingfishers, otters and salmon leaping in the River Wye plus the bonus of a beautiful sunset and sunrise.
We have room for approximately 20 tents. Most of our pitches have their own log pits and own seating area. Camp fires are encouraged and wood can be provided.
We can also accommodate Campervans when we are quieter so please do ask. We also love having well behaved dogs on site at no extra charge.
The camping area is right on the river so – pull the canoe up and relax. Well maybe not – pitch the tent – light the fire and cook your supper.
If you don’t feel like cooking however book a BBQ or breakfast ahead of time and be pampered. Breakfast with hot drinks and a fully cooked to order breakfast roll will be delivered to your tent at your required time - so no need to even change out of your PJs.
We have fresh running drinking water and 2 loos and 2 showers, fully stocked with loo rolls, soap, hand towels and hairdryers are available. There is free WiFi on site plus charging points for phones/devices. We have a small shop area with sweets/treats/ice creams/drinks etc but if you call ahead we can always get you anything you may want with our own provision run. We can normally rustle up anything you may need - just ask! There is a small lodge set aside for your use which has a fridge/freezer, toaster and kettle and there is a dedicated wash-up point.
In the morning, when you are up with the lark, take a stroll over the 242 year old Whitney Bridge and drink in the history before lighting your fire for your morning cuppa. If you are feeling brave have a swim or indulge in a spot of fishing!
We do have a full alcohol drinks licence so you can buy beers or wines to enjoy on the picnic tables – or can walk just over half a mile to the nearest pubs.
For Duke of Edinburgh or Scout type groups we offer FREE camping for 2 leaders when you bring a group of 10 young people to camp with us overnight.
