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. 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.

Lovely rural location

Orchard Lodge
This is an extremely pleasant CL with easy walking access to the local town of Bibury. It was straightforward to book on line with all there necessary information. We were impressed with the organisation on arrival and the friendly owner came to our pitch to make sure we had all we required. We enjoyed the rural setting and being able to hear the sound of the sheep in the adjoining field. Definitely a CL to revisit!

Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone

Orchard Lodge
This site has to be one of the best we’ve been to. What a gem. We only had a 2 night stay and the weather wasn’t being kind, it didn’t stop us from enjoying it though. A kind friendly greeting from the owner Peter. The rest has already been said. We most definitely will be back hopefully with our friends. Thank you Peter

Very impressed with this site

Orchard Lodge
Stayed here for 3 nights recently. The site is exceptionally well kept and managed. The owner popped down to see me shortly after arrival and explained the site and surrounding area. He also gave me some information sheets and maps for local walks. This is a great location for anyone visiting the Cotswolds, or just to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside. He did mention though that the farm machinery workshop beside the site can be a bit noisy during the working week with tractors and vehicles moving in and out. Well worth a visit and we will certainly go back. Regards, Mal
