Details : Tump Caravan site is a little piece of paradise in the Wye Valley. Get the most out of your stay in the Wye Valley and Welsh borders. The Wye Valley is a great place to enjoy cycling, canoeing, walking, rock climbing, painting or simply appreciating the superb flora and fauna to be found in this designated Area of Outstanding National Beauty.

The caravan campsite at The Tump provides ideal self-catering holidays accommodation for guests attending weddings, family reunions, festivals and sporting events in the nearby towns of Monmouth, Chepstow and Abergavenny. The glorious Tintern Abbey is well worth a visit and the village of Tintern has cafes, pubs and gift shops to visit.

Guests can enjoy a stroll around the farm and watch Marie feed the alpacas, sheep and chickens and the small lake in the grounds is a perfect spot for spending the day relaxing with a good book and a picnic. Walk or cycle around the winding village roads exploring Penallt Old Church and taking a lunch and cold beer at the Inn at Penallt in the village or The Boat Inn located on the riverside. In the evenings you can enjoy a BBQ on the veranda and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature all around you. The bus stop is at the end of the drive. Busses go to Monmouth and Chepstow.

What a lovely site.

To start with, getting to this site was stress free following the owner's directions. Always a good start. We were treated to a warm welcome and given information about places to visit and eat. This is a new site and the water / waste area was excellent. You are treated to a gently sloping field so you will need leveling blocks but are rewarded with great views. If you are with 3 mobile you might find yourself without a signal at times, but just enjoy the peace and quiet. This is a walker's paradise so take an OS map with you. The Wye valley is close to hand as well as castles and an abbey. The only downside for us was that we didn't have enough time ! There is so much to see.


Peaceful Haven

We were the second visitors to this new CL and the couple who arrived the day before us thought exactly the same about the the place. Beautiful. We stayed 6 nights initially, went home due to prior commitments and came back the next week for a further 6 nights. That says it all really. Very warm welcome from lovely owners who enjoy living in this peaceful valley and are happy to share it with others. Set at the top of a sloping field, protected from northerly winds by hedges and trees, the site has lovely south facing views across the wooded valley. You will need levelling blocks due to slope,and if using satnav from Monmouth follow owners directions, continuing until you see the sign to Whitebrook. If you take earlier left turns signposted Penallt you will encounter narrow lanes. We will be back again to see the autumn colours which will only enhance the already lovely view.
