Why stay here ...

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.

Outstanding CL site

Orchard Lodge

Right from the booking to arrival, the information provided by the owners was high quality. Thanks to the information provided by the owners the site was easy to find, from the notice board at the entrance we quickly identified our pitch. Soon after setting up Julie kindly introduced herself and provided maps detailing walks close to the site etc. Fresh vegetables can also be purchased from the owners at a very reasonable cost and has been grown on their land. The site was quiet and suited our purpose perfectly, will definitely  be returning as there is so much to see local to the site. Best CL site we have stayed on to date

So Peaceful

Orchard Lodge
Fabulous site and so peaceful. We love having our own water tap too. Wonderful welcome. Site is in a great location for visiting the Cotswolds. We walked into Bibury where there is a pub and hotel with lovely outside area. The information hut is well presented with plenty of details for where to eat, visit etc Magazines are a lovely touch as was the form that can be used to order fresh veg/salad from the garden We will definitely be staying here again Highly recommended

Excellent site …super owners

Orchard Lodge
We stayed in the Lodge site which was hardstanding, level and perfectly well spaced. There was lots of local info in the information hut and WiFi connection was good. We enjoyed our walks into the beautiful village of Bibury for coffee at the Trout farm. Peter and Julie were extremely helpful as the main purpose for our visit was to explore the area for relocation. They offered their valued local knowledge in abundance. Such lovely friendly owners. We will definitely be returning.

Beautiful and peaceful site

Orchard Lodge
Stayed for 2 nights for a wedding in the village, we had a lovely welcome to a well manicured and quiet site, 15 minutes to walk to the centre of Bibury,. Looking forward to a longer stay in the future to explore more of the surrounding countryside. Would very much recommend.

Excellent Site

Orchard Lodge
We stayed for two weeks in May and on arrival were greeting by friendly and enthusiastic owners, who gave us lots of information on local amenities and places of interest, especially helpful were the walking maps provided. The site is well appointed and kept to a high standard, we would highly recommend a stay here for access to the Cotswolds.
