Why stay here ...

Our site is in the peaceful, rural hamlet of Standish, yet just minutes from Junctions 12 and 13 of the M5. It is set on our family run arable farm where we grow a variety of crops. Standish has a very beautiful Grade 1 Listed 14th Century Church with an imposing spire which is floodlit during the winter months and can be seen from the site. The bells can often be heard on a Sunday morning or a Friday evening.

The site is easily accessed and level and extends to about ¾ acre. It is in a lovely sunny spot with pockets of shade. The grass is regularly mowed and there are some hardstanding areas. Pets and children are welcome. There are ample hook ups for you to choose where to park and there is good TV reception as well as free Wi-Fi.

The location is ideal for walkers, being in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are several footpaths and bridleways around the farm which provide some lovely walks close at hand. The Cotswold Way runs nearby as well as do the Gloucester to Sharpness and the Stroudwater canals where there are some lovely cafés to stop for a coffee and home-made cake!

The site is an ideal base for exploring the nearby Cathedral City of Gloucester with its regenerated docks as well as the Regency town of Cheltenham with its exclusive shops and Stroud with its award winning Farmers' Market. There is a bus stop very near the farm entrance which will take you into Gloucester or into Stonehouse and Stroud. Stonehouse, which is two miles down the road, has a supermarket, pubs, take-aways, as well as doctors, vets, banks and other local shops.

The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge is only 20 minutes' drive away, as are the delightful Cotswold villages of Tetbury, Painswick and Nailsworth. If you have time to explore a little further, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold attract tourists from all over the world. Whilst in that direction you could also visit Countryfile presenter, Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park.

We hope you will come and pay us a visit.

Lovely quiet CL handy for M5

Lovely CL in the Gloucestershire countryside. It’s on a working farm something that seems to have surprised previous reviewers who complained about farm buildings and smells. Very secure, there is a barrier at the entrance to the site. Grass and hard standing available all with EHU. Grey and black waste disposal and a toilet. Fresh water. The owner, Graham, was very welcoming. Lovely dog walking available along a bridleway within yards of the site. Just 10 minutes from the M5 but traffic noise is barely discernible. Ideal stopover to and from the South West. Recommended.

Will come again

Barrier security control for peace of mind, what a treat to feel so safe if leaving during the day. Phond for a last minute space as we were travelling up North. 5 minutes to the M5 but in the country so very peaceful. Would definitely come again, directions 100% accurate. Facility met our needs and able to walk the dog so very good all round. Thank you Judith.

Comment from CL owner:

It is always lovely to hear that people enjoy our site; thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review. We are so glad that you found the site safe and secure with plenty of areas around the farm to walk the dog. We look forward to seeing you again.

Love this place

Near to my son we have used this CL three times and each time improvements have been made. At first the uneven lane leading into the farm bothered us but the security and peacefulness overcome this. It is a working farm. Enough land to walk the dog first thing, but further means using lanes which are busy. But the surrounding beautiful hills contain many walks. Mr Stevens could not be more helpful, info is readily available in the toilet building. Wifi is good and free. The price is good, and stonehouse has all banks, shops and garages. Great bakery and pet shop too.

Overnight stop only

Excellent position for overnight stop due to being 10 mins from M5. Small grassed area plus concrete hard standing area. 4 units on the grass and 2 on the concrete making it rather crowded.no views due to being situated behind large farm buildings. Some building work on a directly adjacent barn was a bit of an eyesore.Cow dung seepage near the water tap was very smelly. On the plus side there is a security barrier.

Reply from the CL owner:

We are glad you found our site excellent for your overnight stop. It is only a few minutes from the M5 but very tranquil. We are pleased to say that the building work on the adjacent barn has now been completed. The work was necessary as a result of storm damage to the barn in January 2016 and being an insurance claim unfortunately took a lot longer than we had hoped and was ongoing through the 2016 season. We have relocated the water tap and no longer store chicken litter near the site. We hope to welcome you again in 2017.

Very dissapointed

Sadly I can only agree with other reviews, this CL is not at all appealing. After a bumpy drive through a farm yard one arrives in an unattractive area surrounded with buildings. There was the choice of hard standing next to the manure pit or a grass area.

Reply from the CL owner:

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to say that we have made a number of improvements to our site. We no longer store chicken litter near the site and have levelled the drive through the farmyard. We hope that you will come and visit us again.
