Site address

The site address is shown as Southam Road, along which we travelled in both directions, as were were unable at first to locate the site. It would be better if the address was shown as "Gravel Pit Lane" which is printed in the Sites Directory, and which was recognised by our SatNav. The actual road name sign was largely hidden from view by overgrowth. The site is affected by noise from an adjacent company's activities, and also here was some road noise from the nearby main road. The surface of the approch road (Gravel Pit Lane) is in a poor state of repair, with pot holes and road "humps", and we were told that the adjacent company should be giving this attention. This is long overdue; towing the caravan along this stretch had to be done very slowly. When we arrived the grass of the field was in need of cutting, which was done during the week we were there, leaving our caravan and another unit on an "island" of longer grass. Apart from the above, the site has excellent views of the hills around, and is central for visiting areas in the locality.

Brilliant for visiting Cheltenham and walkers

We stayed here on our way home from Cornwall and it's a great location, just over 2 miles into the town, close to the racecourse and right behind Cleeve Hill with the most amazing views and footpaths for miles. Site itself is clean, scenic and easy to access. Huge field and central electric points so you can park away from others. Lovely owner too. Would return.

Longmeade Farm

This was our second visit to this site, which we use to break up journeys to Wales. The site is handily situated for exploring the Cotswolds, and there is some excellent walking in the hills around Cheltenham. We did notice some noise from the site next door, but to be honest it wasn't intrusive. While I'd agree that the siting of the 'leccy' boxes means you aren't in a row, there are only 2 of them, so unless you have extension power cables, or are prepared to go 'off grid' then, while it's a 1 acre field, only about half of it is usable. This shouldn't, and doesn't detract from the site though and it remains a good base for exploring the area.

Relaxed CL

A great relaxing site. Bev the owner always makes you feel welcome. Great location just outside Cheltenham with plenty of local walking. Also good for eating out with lots of pubs within a couple of miles.
