Why stay here ...

NEW FOR 2020 - LAKE WALK

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.

Cotswolds Delight

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

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

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.

Fabulous CL

What an absolute gem of a site, we stayed at the site in August, a very warm welcome, covid safe each pitch had a sanitizer and also at the bins and elsan. Grass cut very short and well maintained. Stunning views, ideally situated , the site had a honesty shop, can highly recommend the home made cakes 🍰🍰. We will definitely return.

Scenic Sun Trap

We stayed here while walking the Winchcombe Way. What a wonderful place - view from caravan is just lovely over the sheep field to the hills. Fully serviced pitches make life very easy. Rose has made very effort for covid safety providing sterilising sprays at key places. Site has easy access for larger caravans.
