Why stay here ...

Please Note: This CL will only be taking bookings for 2021 onwards.

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.

Perfection

Our first visit to a 5 site, this is a dream location to explore some of the many footpaths in the area. Orchard lodge is 0.75 miles from Bibury and is a must see location. This 5 van site is well maintained and is a credit to its owners

Perfect

We spent three days at this site. All the pitches are hardstanding and have electric and water close by. The site is very quiet, There is a farm machinery stockist nearby, but we never heard any noise at all from them. The owners are always there if needed, and were keen to see that everything was alright. The village of Bibury is really worth a visit, and is within about a mile and a half mile walk. All in all it is a perfect place for relaxing with beautiful country around. We will definitely visit again

Charming and peaceful CL

This is a gem of a site - small, peaceful, with helpful and friendly owners. Facilities good with water point and electric to each pitch, CEP in adjacent field. Steady walk into beautiful Bibury with its idyllic setting and the added benefits of its trout farm. Good base for exploring the beautiful Cotswold villages. There is also a sister CL (Orchard Meadow) with open views. Two excellent CLs under the same ownership. Will definitely return.

Lovely CL

Our first trip out to this beautifully kept and Covid safe cl for 3 nights as soon as we were able to travel again. Owners gave us a nice welcome on arrival and explained where everything was. Each pitch has its own water tap. Lovely walks in area. Bibury only about 20 minute walk where we had a picnic by the river. A couple of nice pubs in village too. Will definitely return to this cl.

3 Night Stay

We stayed at Orchard Lodge for 3 nights in mid April. The site is very easy to find and access is through a large 5 bar gate. We were welcomed by the owner who was very friendly and showed us where everything was located. We had electric point and a water tap on our pitch. The site is set in a lovely location with a field adjacent which you can walk around and where the chemical waste disposal is located. Bibury is a beautiful village 1 mile away to the river so takes about 20 minutes to walk in. There are 2 pubs and a trout farm which has a cafe with outdoor seating overlooking the lakes. We did a lovely walk from site to the next village, Coln St Aldwyns and back along the river which was beautiful The site is very Covid safe and we saw the owners come round and sterilise any touch points several times a day. We will definitely return
