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.

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.

Lovely Site

Orchard Lodge
Orchard Lodge is a lovely little site. It is situated just outside the picturesque village of Bibury but easy to access from Cirencester. Orchard Lodge consists of 4 hardstandings (with a lovely Cotswold stone) and 1 grass pitch. There is water and electric to every pitch with a discretely located waste point. Peter has populated an information cabin with huge amounts of detail and is on hand to provide a personalised welcome- including tips on local walks. The location offers lovely walks, rich in wildlife and history. Nearby there are multiple places to visit depending on your choices. The Cotswold water park offers a range of activities and the locality is great for cycling.

Can’t add to anything that others have already written but can thoroughly recommend this CL. Very easy access to Bibury and all other local Cotswolds attractions.

Another enjoyable stay….

Orchard Lodge
We have returned to Orchard Lodge for another peaceful break before the site closes for the winter. Everything is as good as before and the only change was the beautiful autumn colours of the trees. We will definitely be back in 2024. Thanks to Peter and Julie for their assistance with our Sister’s booking when the email didn’t work…..they are always helpful and accommodating. See you next year!
