Why stay here ...

Severn House Farm is a family run CL set in a quiet and idyllic setting within the historic Berkeley Vale.

The pitching area and site facilities are located in a fenced field and offers a choice of hard standing or grass pitches for the convenience of visitors to suit their personal preferences and/or weather conditions.

Access to the site is through a digitally locked gate offering a high level of privacy and security in equal measures.

The site is a recreational haven for walkers and wild life enthusiasts alike and an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area and attractions within striking distance.

A five minute walk brings you to: the Severn Way, two nearby lakes to take a stroll around, the Severn estuary, National Cycle Route 41 or if you prefer you can sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. It is an ideal location for bird watching.

Within 3 miles you can enjoy The Jenner Museum - home of the pioneering Dr Edward Jenner whose vaccination experiment led to the eradication of smallpox, Berkeley Castle - a medieval castle famous for its connection with Edward II or The Berkeley Deer Park - a heard of red and fallow deer, an ancient line of oak trees and breathtaking views.

Within 10 miles:- Slimbridge Wetlands Centre, The Tyndale Monument or Stroud Farmers Market (Saturdays).

Within 20 miles:- Gloucester Quays, Tetbury, Westonbirt Arboretum, The Cotswolds, SS Great Britain, Bristol Docks and Chepstow Castle.

Public Transport - Bus stop in Berkeley (3 miles) and train station at Cam (5 miles) which will take you into the centre of Bristol.

Pub awarded the 'Best in Gloucestershire' (2 miles away) and good food at the Hotel in Berkeley plus several other pubs and takeaways.

One thing for sure there will be more than enough to entertain you during your stay at Clapton or alternatively you can just relax and unwind in the tranquility that is Severn House Farm CL.

With pitch prices starting from as little as £10 a night, and a further discounted rate of £60 for a full week of continuous days, we believe you would be hard put to find better value for money. Please note that whilst we cannot offer electrical hook-ups we believe the location will more than make up for this. We do, however, offer a battery charging service.

For further information please call or email and join us in the Gloucestershire country side where a warm welcome is assured and for the start of what we hope will be many visits.

So peaceful.

We stayed two nights in June during term time so we were the only people on the site. Lush countryside. Flat roads for easy cycling. The estuary footpath just down the road is brilliant but there is stock in some fields so not suitable for walking the dog. Very easy access. Lovely lake just behind the site. Friendly and clearly very hardworking owners.

Quiet, secure, sheltered

Near Berkeley Castle, which has been at the centre of British and some US history for a very long time, and Dr Jenner's house (of smallpox vaccination fame). Both of these places are free admission, free guided tour and free audio tour for Historic Houses Assoc members and well worth visiting. Good walking (take an OS map because the footpath signposts are sometimes not evident) from the campsite along the ridge of the Vale of Berkeley and along the River Severn. Site is secluded, flat, big and well maintained with good quality facilities. We had it to ourselves for three nights in June. Next to a fishing lake which is so well hidden you would hardly know it was there. Wide views. High hedges on two sides provide shelter in this windy part of Gloucestershire.

Great Basic Site

I stayed on my way north - specifically to visit Slimbridge and Berkeley Castle. Both well worth a visit. I booked the day before arrival and Elizabeth was very helpful and very apologetic that the strimmer had broken when trying to tidy the CDP area which wasn't a problem to me - the area is well laid out with a excellent empty point as seen in the photo. (none of your dustbin lids etc.) This is a basic CL so don't expect manicured grass - but this site is easy for the M5 - although the last half mile would be difficult if you met another outfit - the rest is fine but beware the cyclists! Excellent cycling country though. I took the scenic route away from Slimbridge and discovered a wonderful butchers shop in the middle of nowhere "Clayton House Meats" not open everyday but on Saturday when I passed. The fishing lake adjacent to the site is beautiful and makes a pleasant short walk. Longer walks along the Severn bank also stunning. The hard standing would benefit by being defined a bit as nature is somewhat taking over but I prefer grass anyway. I do hope they make a success of the site - at the moment you can't find this site by name search - only on the map - which needs to be addressed and will contact the Club to point this out.

Ideal stop over or place for some peace

Stayed one night on our way to Devon. Ideally placed for easy access to, and from the motorway. The location is a field with a fenced and gated section. Tap handy and waste drop also close. No 240v but not an issue for us. Walking down the lane takes you in 10 mins on to the embankment overlooking the river. Ideal for dogs etc. Friendly owners live in the farmhouse by the path. A rare thing these days...peace..no cars..no noise...bliss. Will use again maybe for a bit longer than a stop over.

A lovely new site - peace!

We were the first visitors to this site an ideal stop off on our way to Cornwall and we stopped again on the way home. A fabulous welcome by Liz , who advised us where we could walk and things to visit locally. It is very basic with no electricity but very quiet and has hardstanding available if the weather is wet. A short walk down a quiet lane gets you to the Severn where you can walk the path for miles and a small fishing lake on the site gives a pretty peaceful short walk. A lovely place to unwind , I wish them the best of luck with their new venture and look forward to visiting again
