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.

Overnight stay

Moorend Farm
We have stayed on this site several times before and as always Heather made us feel very welcome. The site is always spotless with water on each pitch which is a bonus these days. Lovely walks around the surrounding countryside. We will definitely stay again and hopefully for longer next time. We recommend this site and it is perfectly situated for those travelling on the M5

Lovely CL site

Moorend Farm
We stayed 5 nights at Moorend Farm which is just a short drive from the M5, so a great to stop over destination. There will be a board letting u know ur pitch and Heather is lovely. There is plenty of room between pitches which is surrounded by hedges so shelters from wind and noise (blackberries and damsons in the hedges when we were here). Its not far from the motorway but quiet really most of the time. Just a 25 min walk from site along quiet lanes is Shepherd's Patch, beside the canal. You can go for a walk along the canal or sit by the Black Shed with a pint or coffee watching the boats, paddleboards and birds. There is also a pub on the other side of the road next to a large caravan site. The Black Shed also does a lovely fish, chip and beer on Friday night. Slimbridge Wildfowl centre is a little further on down the road. All in all a lovely quiet CL site to relax.

Lovely CL

Moorend Farm
Just spent 4 nights at Moorend Farm and what a lovely place. Easy to find and access is straightforward. A board at the entrance lets you know your pitch, we were at the far end on one of the grass pitches which we prefer. The site is surrounded by hedges, so no views, but the hedges do provide shelter. There are plenty of walks in the area, along footpaths or quiet lanes. You can spend a lovely afternoon watching the boats on the canal with a cuppa or a pint from the Black Shed, just down the road. A bit further down the road is the wildfowl and bird place...you could pay £16 each, or you can see swans and ducks on the canal for free!!
