Camping in the Forest of Dean?

Rushmere Campsite is a small family run farm site, occupying approximately 3 acres of the farm. The farm is situated between the A4136 (main arterial road to The Forest of Dean) and the B4228 (Grid reference 5611), half a mile west of Coleford with all local facilities.

The farm is a family site on the Duke of Edinburgh Awards scheme list. Although we welcome groups of young people we expect everyone to abide by the campsite rules.


Revised Access Statement -

July 2020

Covid 19 restrictions have affected our usual conditions of access. Please read this information as we are operating differently due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Social distancing must ALWAYS be maintained on the campsite. The rules are no different than at home. Please show consideration for the local community.

All arrivals MUST report at the house to register and pay. Please ring the bell loudly and stand behind the outside wall. We will conduct all business in the open keeping social distance. You will no longer have to sign your receipt to minimise contact. If you require change after payment, this will have been stored in disinfectant. You will be directed to your pitch number (if you have booked an electric hook-up) or instructed where you can choose your pitch (these are random).

All campers are required to give contact details on arrival at the site to assist in possible tracing, in case of future infection.

The toilet and shower block are limited to three persons in either the gents/ladies. All showers and toilets are in separate cubicles.
The individual toilet/shower rooms (family rooms) are restricted to 1 person or a couple. We ask that you shower children down by the house at the ‘family shower facility’, so that people-flow is maintained at the main cabin.
Children under 12 are NOT ALLOWED in the toilets/showers on their own. They MUST be supervised by a family adult member.

No more than two people are allowed in the washing-up area at one time.

Sanitising stations are sited as you arrive near the house, outside the toilet block and in the gents/ladies toilets and shower room.
You MUST sanitise your hands before entering the buildings.
Wash your hands more frequently and use the hand sanitisers positioned by the cabin/house.

Please maintain social distancing when filling up with fresh water or emptying waste.
Please dispose of your rubbish appropriately and remember to recycle items where possible. We thank you for your support.
All freshwater taps will be sanitised regularly.

You must inform us of any person in your group showing symptoms of coronavirus:
• Dry cough
• High temperature
• Headache
• Loss of smell.
We can then implement ‘Track and Trace’.

Thank you for your co-operation. Please stay safe.

The Forest of Dean
