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.

Children welcome.

Perfect

Stayed at this site last weekend. Directions easy to follow. Access to site is easy and plenty wide enough. Site very well set out and maintained, grass low and no cuttings. EHU and water to each pitch. Well spaced pitches too all with a lovely view of the hills and surrounding fields. Very well set back from country lane so no road noise and a security gate which is locked at 11.30pm. It's a working farm so gate can't be locked before then I suspect but we certainly never saw anyone that shouldn't have been there. Friendly welcome on arrival by Rose, cooked breakfasts are also available if pre-booked at the B&B. Local and easy access to many areas of beauty - Broadway, Winchcombe, Stow and of course Cheltenham if you fancy a bit of shopping. Fish & Chips from Winchombe were very good and would recommend. Will definitely return to this site, it is perfect for a long or short stay you can't help but enjoy the peace and quiet. Oh and you get to see the GWR steam train go back and forward in the distance a couple of times a day too, but the noise is nothing of concern and is actually really quaint.

Beautiful CL

We Have now been to Elms Farm twice in the last few months, this is such a lovely site, grass very short and no bits of grass in the van. The owners are so helpful and there is not problems with bigger outfits, peace and quite and the views are to die for, just wish it was a little closer to home but, we will be returning, thank you Rosemary we love your site.

Idyllic Spot

I can only echo all the lovely things that have been said about this site already, they are all true! It is a beautiful spot, and well placed for many attractions including the Prescott Speed Hill Climb, which is in cycling distance, walking in the spectacular countryside and cycling. We will definitely be back next year!

Top notch CL

We loved this CL. So peaceful with a warm welcome from Rose. Level pitches with water and EHU on each pitch. We loved watching the steam train puffing past, across the fields. The owners have thoughtfully marked the walking route to the village and we recommend the pub and food there. We wouldn't hesitate to return for a bit more R&R.

Can't fault it

The site is flat, immaculate, friendly/helpful owners, grass regularly cut short, plenty of space, and easy access from the Tewkesbury/M5 direction, but I would not want to tow a caravan through Winchcombe if coming from the other direction. It was lovely to watch the antics of the sheep and lambs in the field, and to see the steam train in the distance. The owners have made a pleasant walk across their fields to the village (and pub). The water taps on each plot were much appreciated. We would definitely stay again when in the area (if it's not full!)
