Tresseck campsite review

Tresseck campsite has direct access to the River Wye, and is therefore perfect for taking your stand up paddleboard, canoe or to simply enjoy wild swimming. This is also a great site for fishing.

The campsite is extremely spacious, with lots of room to spread out and even camp with friends. I visited with my absolutely beautiful friends Elaina from Van_fam_andme and Amy from Daisy_the familycamper. I loved that the ‘back to basics’ campsite had a really lovely vibe, and felt spacious. One thing to note is the campsite is for tents and campervans only (no caravans allowed).

There is a lovely cafe on site – great for an early morning coffee or tea ,and a breakfast bap or toastie. There is also a pizza oven too!

The site has clean portable toilets and drinking water. There are no facilities for washing up or showering, but that didn’t bother us too much. Besides….there is a lovely river for a freshen up!!

Can you launch your SUP at Tresseck campsite?

The answer is yes. I took the stand up paddlebaord (SUP), and it is only a short walk from the campervan to the beach for watersports a plenty. The campsite even has electricity to blow the SUP up. How lovely is that?

Are groups allowed?

The campsite welcome family groups and has fenced-off areas to allow families to camp together in their own area with a firepit. 

Can you wild swim at Tresseck campsite?

We did indeed go for a swim. The water around the beach was shallow too. What I would say is don’t underestimate the current… it was strong when we visited. Keep your eyes on the little ones at all times, and of course ensure water safety.

Are dogs allowed at Tresseck campsite?

The answer is yes, well behaved dogs are welcome. They must be kept on a lead at all times.

Are campfires and BBQs allowed?

Yes to this too. The campsite sells firewood and kindling.

Tresseck campsite review: Final thoughts

I love the back to basics feel. The campsite has a lovely vibe, wonderful access to water for the paddleboard, and a great cafe. Jeff is absolutely lovely, really welcoming and goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is enjoyable. I loved the additional football field too for the kids to enjoy the open space.


Would we return? Absolutely yes!
