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.

Nice site

Moorend Farm
Stayed here 4 nights to break our journey to Devon. It's a nice site, especially if you can get one of the grass pitches. We were on a hard standing, which was ok, but some previous user had spoilt part of the grassed area. Great views and handy to walk to the wildlife park and the Tudor Arms.

Another lovely stay

Moorend Farm
We've just returned from a 2 night stay at this very well maintained CL. We like the fact that there is a board telling you which pitch you're on and with water and EHU on each pitch we were soon set up. Site was immaculate and very peaceful and is ideally placed for a visit to Slimbridge Wetland Centre. Heather was lovely and remembered us for a previous stay. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent site. Very easy access from M5. Well maintained, quiet site with friendly, helpful owners. Water and waste water disposal (ditch) on each pitch very convenient.

Lovely little site.

Moorend Farm
Stayed for 5 nights late Feb 2022, including throughout storm Franklin! Site was just sheltered enough to deflect the worst of the storm. Access is easy and whilst very close to and handy for the M5, the site is very quiet and we couldnt hear the traffic at all. All of the pitches are flat and level (grass and hard standing) and very dry, even in February? Would definitely recomend

First visit to a CL, we chose the right one, Brilliant

Moorend Farm
This was our very first visit to a CL and it couldn't have been better. An easy to get to location, although the lane to the site is a bit narrow without many passing places, luckily we didnt meet a tractor or cattle lorry on our drives in and out!. The owners are very friendly and made sure we knew where everything was, a whiteboard gave the information as to which pitch we had so we could just pitch up however the rain had washed it off! (storm Dudley).. we chose correctly confirmed by the lovely Heather. there are now 3 hard standings (the photos show only two) a small semi enclosed area has the rubbish separation bins and Black waste dump which is clean and easy to use, grey water gets poured into a drainage ditch so a grey water hose attached to the drain tap would be brilliant, we used our wastemaster then just tipped it in now and then. The small dog walk area is an ideal size, there is also plenty of footpaths through larger fields adjacent to the site, which our collie enjoyed thoroughly We ran out of milk so took a walk into Slimbridge thinking the post office would have some, unfortunately not, it is just a post office. So we had to take the MH into Cam where there is a Shell garage with a Spar attached or further into the village a cafe or two etc and a Tesco supermarket. The area seems pleasant but we didn't get time to explore to much due to the storms. The Owners were extremely busy as they were calving but still made time to make sure we were ok. a Lovely site that would be even better in the summer months, we will stay here again if in the area and are looking forward to more CL stays in the future.
