Why stay here ...

 

Please Note: This CL will only be taking bookings for 2021 onwards.

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.

Excellent basic CL

We loved this very peaceful place. Easy access, flat field with lots of space and good basic facilities. Great location for cycling and walking. The River Severn is very dramatic at this point. Owner let us get on with it but it's all looked after very well.

Lovely Peaceful Place

We found Severn House as it was very near relatives and offers no electric which we prefer. It is a fantastic base for cycling and walking. The sunsets over the estuary were amazing and a very short walk/ride. We did not meet our hosts but in Covid times felt this was very acceptable. I had to inform them that the inconsiderate guests leaving from the weekend had left an unacceptably large amount of unsorted, insufficiently bagged rubbish. They collected it very quickly. Thank you

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.
