Why stay here ...

Located in the delightful market town of Minchinhampton with an adjacent 580 acre Common, Charity Barn CL is the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful Cotswold countryside with plenty of walks and cycle rides on offer. Surrounded by a choice of pubs and restaurants within walking distance, spectacular views can be enjoyed across the five valleys. On a clear day the River Severn can be seen winding its way across the landscape.

The lovely old market town of Minchinhampton is just a 10-minute walk away. Many of its old Cotswold stone buildings and narrow streets are mentioned in the Doomsday book. In Minchinhampton you will find a chemist, convenience store, family butcher, coffee shops and two pubs. The quirky town of Stround is just 3 miles away with an award-winning farmer market every Saturday, voted "Best in Country".

Other nearby attractions include the Georgian town of Bath, a 30-minute drive with Cheltenham 20 minutes and Cirencester 15 mintues away.

Charity Barn CL site is next to Minchinhampton Golf Course, which is renowned for its year round immaculate presentation.

For animal lovers, you will enjoy a very warm welcome from our four donkeys: Blue, Bramble, Charlie and Larry. Dogs are also welcome on site; plus, most local pubs are happy to accommodate them.

All made from local produce, we can offer our guests delicious homemade cakes and meals on request, courtesy of our 25 year family run business, Honeysuckle Catering.

We look forward to welcoming you at Charity Barn CL and ensuring your stay is as enjoyable as possible!

Please note we have electricity installed in all our pitches and gravel pitches are available.

Peaceful and Relaxing

Lovely site, peaceful and relaxing. The only noise was made by the donkeys. Plenty of walking nearby and lovely people on site. Able to choose our pitch and plenty of space to park and site outside. There is a pub within walking distance, however due to covid they were only taking booked in customers.

Peaceful and well maintained

A stay of two nights on this well maintained site. Gravel hard standing - you might need a block to totally level up. we noticed others using them. We overshot the entrance and ended up half a mile away in Minchinhampton, which looked interesting and picturesque to explore at a future date. The donkeys were delightful and enjoyed a bag of carrots over 2 nights. We were lucky to see stunning sunsets each evening - will certainly use this site again when in the area.

Immaculate welcoming site

Wonderful little CL immaculately presented with near level 5 pitches, four cotswold gravel and one grass. Access to the site via decent sized turn (probably best approached from the common, not Minchinhampton itself) between two stone posts. Facilities all kept very clean, tidy and fully functional, including recycling bins. Owner makes a point of coming to greet you on arrival and is very welcoming. Website description completely accurate. Literally walk out of the gate and step onto Minchinhampton Common. Worth noting that the common is quite breezy being relatively high but the CL is part sheltered by interference fencing and some trees. Paddock opposite the pitches with three very fine horses (at least while we were there). The Old Lodge (10 mins walk) is a very spacious inn with beer garden(s) - great beer and really good food - recommend the breakfast! Tremendous access to all points of the compass via the common - minor downside is that you do hear invitable traffic but it really is minor in comparison to the gain of such close access to the common! We loved bringing our van here and will certainly visit again.
