Why stay here ...

Moorend Farm CL is a picturesque peaceful site, located on a family run working farm in the village of Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, half way between M5 junctions 13 and 14 and is open all year round. The ¾ acre enclosed field is accessed through a 15 foot gate, level with individual pitch water tap and 16 amp electric hook ups. We welcome adults and well behaved pets to stay on one of our three lawned grass pitches and two hard standings(preference is given to motorhomes).

Our site offers an ideal base to explore the surrounding vale of Berkeley, the Cotswolds and the cities of Bristol, Cheltenham, Cirencester and Gloucester. Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetland Trust, set on the side of the beautiful Severn Estuary is only 1.5 miles away, open all year round, the reserve covers 800 acres and is home to thousands of migratory birds, wetland mammals, plants, amphibians and insects. Within easy reach Westonbirt Arboretum near Tetbury offers the chance to view 18,000 trees and shrubs over 600 acres of Cotswold countryside. An ideal attraction for walkers is Woodchester Park which offers stunning views hidden within a secluded Cotswold valley, within the park is a 19th Century Victorian Gothic Mansion which was mysteriously abandoned mid construction. Finally Berkeley Castle, in Berkeley is the oldest Castle in Britain to be lived in by the same family for nearly 900 years, offering guided tours, landscaped gardens, tropical butterfly house and tea room.

A petrol station with cash machine and small spar shop are 2 miles from the site, 3 miles away in Cam we have a post office, supermarket and chemist. The local towns of Dursley and Wotton-under-Edge offer shopping, pubs and restaurants. Our closest pub is 1 mile away on the side of the Gloucester to Sharpness Canal. The bus stop is sited on the A38 a mile away, Cam railway station is 2 miles away with trains departing regularly for Bristol and Gloucester.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions or visit our Website for more details.

We also accept BACS transfer as a form of payment thank you.

We now have a lovely small, level, regularly mowned circular dog walk, which is located at the end of the field, right next to our site.

Good Location

We wanted a CL about an hour's drive from home on a Friday evening, easy to get to, close to the M5, with a hardstanding and a peaceful environment for a quiet night. We got all this at Moorend. We stayed for just one night as planned, on our way north, but will be back for a weekend as the area has much to offer. Slimbridge Wetland Centre is within walking distance and Woodchester Mansion near Stroud was a 25min easy drive for our Saturday morning visit. The site is well maintained, flat and with the grass kept short. It felt private and there was only the slightest road hum from the M5 a mile or so away. The facilities were what we expected and we will have no hesitation in returning.

Great CL

This site is a perfect CL. Set on the edge of Slimbridge there is easy access to three level hard standings and two grass pitches in this sunny open aspect site. The owners couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. On our way here, when we rang to let them know our journey was delayed due to traffic, we asked them about park and ride for our motorhome in Gloucester (there is none ...) or Cheltenham (both P&R sites have it although only the racecourse advertises it) and received a print out from the owners on our arrival. There can be some distant noise from the A38 and M5 if the wind is in the 'wrong' direction. However we thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend and loved the area, especially our cycle ride along the canal to Frampton on Severn and lunch in The Bell.

Love it!

Extremely well kept, well run CL. Blackboard with pitching instructions upon arrival and Heather came over as soon as we were settled with information leaflet and helpful advice. Very handy dog walk at the top of the field especially for the early morning and bedtime weewees!! Loads of lovely walks across the fields in the area and down to the canal, be careful some of the styles were a little overgrown with nettles! Apart from a slight hum from the M5 (which after the first day you don't notice) you really felt you were in the middle of the countryside with all the obligatory country smells and noises from a working farm. We will definitely be returning, unfortunately the site is already full booked for our next trip to the area so we'll have to wait a couple of months before we return. Thanks for a lovely weeks stay!!  A point regarding a comment left back in 2014 regarding damaged caused when entering the field - we have a twin axle van 7.89m long towed by a Toyota Landcruiser - a pretty long outfit - and we had no trouble at all plenty of room to swing in - you just have to be sensible!

Love this site

What a refreshing change to stay on a site so well run and kept. A little narrow on the last part of the approach but otherwise I can't fault it. We'd booked ahead and the owners had a blackboard set up near the entrance indicating which of the five level pitches we were to go onto. Within five minutes of unhitching Mrs Smith came out to greet us and gave us a leaflet they had prepared detailing local supermarkets, restaurants, takeaways, places of interest, map etc. The site has three hard standings and two grass pitches. The grass is all cut short. There are four hookup points and each pitch has a fresh water tap. The cassette emptying point and bins are all kept out of sight but close-by. Quiet, peaceful, rural setting and yet still close enough to the motorway to get about and see the sights. This site is so clean and well looked after. We WILL return.
