Why stay here ...

Orchard Meadow 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 1 acre in size and regularly mown. Pitches are 18 metres apart with their own electrical hook up and water tap. The site has an open aspect with views over the Cotswold countryside. 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 miles away. Also serving food in Bibury are the Swan Hotel, the Bibury Court 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 Tesco's (2), a Waitrose, Co-op and Lidl supermarkets.

A little Gem

What a beautiful well kept and well managed site. Julie and Peter were most welcoming and could not do enough to make sure we were happy and settled. Nothing was too much bother. We stayed in both the Orchard Lodge and the Meadow as we extended our stay. With plenty of space with only 5 pitches within the acre site it was truly tranquil. That is not to say there wasn't any road noise as there was a bit but it was country road noise that disappeared the more we relaxed. On the edge of Bibary Village where you can view the Arlington Cottages as featured in our passports, it is a short walk of 0.6 of a mile with a handy pub with lovely garden on the way. Julie and Peter also provided a couple of maps for short walks from the site. Cannot recommend these sites enough. We will definitely be back!

Tuely Lovely

We have now visited twice, and will definately visit again. Lovely spacious site with a warm welcome without feeling watched by the owners. There are lots of local attractions within easy reach, and you can walk to the local village. Definitely recommend.

Perfect CL!

What more can you ask of a site? Perfectly situated for exploring the Cotswolds.An extremely well kept and spacious field with water/ hook up for each pitch.Peaceful views of the countryside and minimal traffic on the adjacent road. Incredibly warm welcome from Peter with lots of useful information especially on local walks. Great meal at the local pub within walking distance. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, Peaceful CL

Recently returned from a 5 night stay at this lovely CL . The meadow is kept like a lawn, with all pitches well spaced along one side. All pitches have water and electricity. We were met and welcomed by Julie shortly after arrival who gave us detailed site information along with maps showing a couple of local walks. The area in general is very beautiful and worth exploring. Typical chocolate box corsages can be found in abundance ! Bibary is a beautiful village and is easily walkable from the site either by following the road or by footpaths across the fields. However it does attract many tourists so it is worth going either early morning or late afternoon to see it at its best. A point of Interest - Arlington Terrace in Bibary was used in the GB Passport and is worth a photo or two. I recommend you try ORCHARD MEADOW , you won’t be disappointed ,,

Very peaceful Cl

We have just spent 2 nights at the Meadows Cl it is so peaceful, immaculate grass pitches with electricity and water supply, the owners Peter and Julie are so welcoming with lots of information about the surrounding area with maps of walks and also what is in the village of Bilbury, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and didnt want to leave will definitely call again when we are in the area. Well done to both of you for making our stay so brilliant.
