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.

ideal stopover but well worth a longer stay

Spent 5 nights here in late july on route to cornwall. Excellent site with very pleasant helpful owner. Just off the motorway so good stopover site but well worth a longer stay, so much to do in the area we will be back.

Oasis of calm

Moorend Farm is a really well laid out site and very well maintained. We were impressed with the blackboard directing us to which pitches were available and the subsequent welcome from Heather. Superb waste and recycling facilities and well stocked information box. Well positioned not far from M5 with just a little noise if the wind was in the right direction - however this didn’t bother us greatly. Located within easy reach of attractions such as the Sharpness to Gloucester canal, Slimbridge, Gloucester, Stroud and National Trust properties. A five star site which we can thoroughly recommend.

Excellent CL site Overnight Stopover

This is a very clean and tidy CL site which is a convenient stopover heading up or down the M5, having that said, wonderful walks along the canal at Shepherds Patch. Peter Scott’s legacy lives on at the Slimbridge Wetland Centre,so lots to see and worth staying at Moorend Farm a few extra nights. Only 3* for the ease of arrival as it is quite a tight turn into entrance gate with a large caravan. Thank you Mrs Smith for another peaceful stay.

Easter break

What a good week we had, very well laid out site, as you would expect, normal every day noise of a working farm. Noise was minimal the odd farm machinery moving from field to field. But this is what you expect in the country. This did not bother us at all. I must add, it was nice to hear the sounds of other people working & me just chillin!! Very impressed with Moorend Farm CL. We will be back for a stay when our work schedule permits. Thanks Heather for your top class welcome!

Great stay

Spent our first two nights as new caravanners at this lovely CL. We were made very welcome by the owner and found it easy to find and set up. Waste area was very handy and nicely laid out. Our two Yorkies enjoyed their walks around the country lanes and we enjoyed our visit to nearby Epney where we saw some surfers on the Severn bore. Good timing! We would definitely visit again and thoroughly recommend it.
