A lovely spot adjacent to Ponds or small lakes with ducks & swans. Very peaceful apart from the distant traffic.
Ground can be a bit squishy but unlikely to get stuck. A good chance of seeing wild boar and deer. Some picnic tables.

Stayed here for 2 nights July 2015. Nice quite night with other MH present. We used the parking area on new Road which has no barriers. Park at the back as the fishermen come and go at all hours but use the front bigeye car park.

Great wild camping location in the Forest of Dean. Spent a very peaceful night here before going for a walk around the Sculpture trail. The car park barrier closes at 21:00 and a warden comes around to check for stragglers, however if you are not there when he arrives (or you speak to him nice (:wink) he will simply issue you with a note telling you if you need to get out of the car park it will cost £50 call out fee. So no worries with joy riders etc. If you turn up late and the gate is closed, it is OK to park outside the gate. Plenty of walks in the area and plenty of other similar spots within 1 mile.
