Why stay here ...

We are now taking bookings for the March to October 2022 season

Orchard Lodge CL is located within a 10 acre small holding about half a mile from the charming Cotswold village of Bibury. William Morris once described Bibury as "the most beautiful village in England". The site itself is flat, about 0.75 acres and with a choice of hard standings or lawned pitches. All pitches have access to electrical hook ups, several have their own water tap and all have room for awnings. The site is secluded being sheltered on 3 sides by hedges and trees with an open aspect over one of our paddocks. Recycling facilities are provided.

The site is an excellent base for exploring the Cotswolds. It is about 6 miles from Cirencester, 7 miles from Chedworth Roman Villa, 10 miles from Burford, 11 miles from the Cotswold Water Park, 12 miles from Bourton-on-the-Water, 18 miles from the Cotswold Farm Park (Adam's Farm), 20 miles from Cheltenham and 21 miles from Westonbirt Arboretum. More details can be found in our Information Hut.

There is a bus stop 500 yards from the site with 5 buses a day into Cirencester and 4 buses back.

The Catherine Wheel pub serves excellent food at a reasonable price and is 0.75 mile away. Also serving food in Bibury are the Swan Hotel and the William Morris Tea Room.

Basic provisions (eg. papers, bread, milk) can be obtained from the Trout Farm which also serves teas and snacks. There is also a Post Office and gift shop. In Cirencester there is a full range of shops including 2 Tesco's, a Waitrose, Co-op, Aldi and Lidl supermarkets.

After a short walk on a quiet road there are a variety of footpaths which can be followed allowing circular walks from 2 miles upwards through beautiful Cotswold countryside and villages.

Bibury mini break

Orchard Lodge

We stayed at Orchard Meadow for one night for a little motorhome mini break. Really impressed with the ease of booking and paying online. Julie was friendly and informative and there was plenty of space in our allocated pitch. We were very lucky with the weather so walked into Bibury to visit the trout farm (great fun!) and have a pint in the Catherine Wheel beer garden which was lovely. There was some noise from the adjacent road during the day, but not enough to spoil our stay. A very well organised site and a pleasant way to spend a weekend.

Excellent stay - very relaxing

Orchard Lodge
A very pretty location. Well spaced out pitches. Stayed for 2 nights very relaxing, would definitely stay again. Peter popped over once we arrived to say hello and supplied information. If it's peace and quiet you are looking for, a pub within walking distance and Cirencester a short bus ride away then this site is for you.

Very Peaceful

I agree with all other reviews my only observation was that especially on our pitch the TV reception left a lot to be desired

Yes, so PEACEFUL!

Orchard Lodge
We only stayed a night on our way south but I can see why people would stay much longer. The CL truly is wonderfully quiet, sheltered and peaceful whilst being close to so many interesting places. We followed the walking maps, so thoughtfully provided with the site information by Julie on our arrival, which took us a different way into the unmissable Bibury. Getting up early the next morning and seeing the village just waking up before the visitors arrived was very special. The site is beautifully cared for and the hard standings make it work well in all weather - which for us was as perfect as our visit! Thank you!
