Why stay here ...

Rose and Martyn would like to welcome you to our sheep and arable farm set in the heart of the Cotswolds.

Set amongst open fields, away from the road and with open views, your only neighbours will be fellow caravan-ners' and maybe a few sheep. The farm attracts birds such as buzzards, red kites, wild ducks, pheasant and owls.

The level site is south facing and also sheltered from the north and all five plots have their own electric and mains water supply. Eggs from our free range chickens and ducks are available most of the year.

Watch the GWSR steam train in the distance trundle along the tracks from Toddington to Cheltenham. Both Toddington and Winchcombe Station are only a few minutes' drive away.

For those of you who would like to meet up with friends during your stay we also run a bed and breakfast business from the Farmhouse. You can even join them for a full English breakfast in the farmhouse.

The area is a walker's paradise with the national trail of the Cotswold Way routed through Winchcombe. The new "Winchcombe Way" is a lovely trail with great views of local towns and villages. All can be accessed by our regular bus service from Gretton village or walk directly from here on one of the waymarked routes.

There are local golf courses or riding centres that we can recommend or perhaps a visit to Gloucester Rugby, Cheltenham Racecourse or the nearby famous Prescott Motor Hill Climb is more your thing (for competitors we have ample extra parking for trailers).

Visit the ancient Saxon town of Winchcombe and Sudeley Castle, Cheltenham Spa, Broadway or Stratford-upon-Avon. Why not visit some of the many National Trust properties in the area or for budding gardeners we have several public gardens to enjoy such as Hidcote, Seizencote or Batsford Arboretum. The choice is yours. 

Please note: Whilst we are happy to accept dogs as we are a working sheep farm, they must be kept on a lead at all times.

We respect guests privacy so we ask that no drones are operated over any part of our farmland.

Wonderful farm site

Elms Farm
From the moment we arrived we had a very warm welcome from Rose and her family. Fabulous site with wonderful open views all around. Quiet apart from the sound of the steam train puffing by several times a day. Idyllic. There are lovely walks from the site into nearby Gretton with a great pub, and about a 3 mile walk into Winchcombe where you can see the steam trains up close while enjoying a coffee and cake at the station. We brought our bikes and the minor roads around are great to cycle on. The site is level and each pitch is fully serviced. A small shop is on site selling milk, eggs, tomatoes, honey and local rapeseed oil. Definitely one of the best and friendliest CLs we’ve ever stayed on. We will be visiting again as soon as we can.

Fantastic

Elms Farm
We spent three nights here and really enjoyed our stay. We googled the route from Cheltenham and decided a better option for us was coming from the M5 which was an easy route. Site access very good and check in easy as our pitch number was both on our payment envelope and on a board. Pitch was quite level with fresh water tap and grey waste into the hedge. Good Elsan and bins provided at the other end of the pitch area along with a farm horsebox shop selling milk/eggs/bacon etc. This is a working farm so dogs must be kept on leads, it was great watching Rose & Martyn working with their dog/sheep! 30 minute walk over the fields to the village, and a short walk to the small lake was pleasant in the evenings. We ate at the Royal Oak which served great food and the service was excellent. Great to watch the steam train in the distance, we found the site very peaceful with little in the way of road noise apart from the odd tractor. Nearby Winchcombe is very quaint and Cheltenham a shoppers paradise if that's your thing. Would definitely come here again if we return to the area. Thank you Rose/Martyn for your very warm welcome.

Cotswolds Delight

Elms Farm
I can see why many CL visitors keep sites like this to themselves.The access is fine from the nearby main road,with a short drive up the farm track to the grass pitches.Details for your pitch are on a rack by the front door,and the owner visits you later. Each pitch has electric and water and waste containers and chemical toilet emptying point are neatly hidden behind a screen partition. The site is handy for Winchcombe,Cheltenham and Tewksbury,there is a off road walk into Greeton for local pubs. Prescott hill climb track and Bugatti museum are next on my list when we return.

Excellent CL

Elms Farm
This was such a great stay! In fact we returned a second time within the same month as we had enjoyed the site so much. Each pitch is spacious with a great view of sheep pastures and the hills beyond. Each pitch has its own water and electric supply. There's even a little shop in a converted horse box with milk and eggs etc. The pitches are level. The grass is regularly mowed. And the owners are helpful and very welcoming and friendly. It's a lovely quiet spot for a relaxing time. The song of the skylarks was a real feature. We would recommend it!

Gloucestershire Site

Elms Farm
Site is well located and very easy to get to. Nice wide drive entrance and then a short track up to the field. Taps and EHU to all pitches, grey waste can be pipped into the hedge behind. There was a bit of road noise, but it wasn't too intrusive (more due to the speed of vehicles than because the roads were busy). The spacing of the pitches is a bit odd, we ended up the on the last pitch by the gate, feeling like we were practically on the drive with the caravan next us so close we could hear them chatting. Also close to the bins and waste disposal. We didn't need an awning but there would have been even less room if we had. The other units on site were much better spaced out, especially the far end which seemed to have three times the space of everyone else. If some pitch markers of some sort were put in this would probably help to even the spacing out. The outlook from the pitches was very nice, over the fields towards the railway. It was lovely watching the whole family moving the sheep. All the pitches got the sun. Rose was very welcoming. Booking easy via the website, payment online.
