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.

Up on the common - watch for Horses

Charity Barn
Nice quite site within easy walking distance of quaint Minchinhampton and it's unique Church and pub. Great food at the pub which is recently refurbished but retains old world look and has it's own beer brand !! . Site itself is on old Alpaca farm but only Donkeys now there. Very personable owners. Rubbish, grey water and chem disposal. Water on entry. EHU on pitch which are all HS. Great walks if you fancy over the common. Very quiet at night. If you're looking for a quiet stop over night, missing the queues on the M5 past Bristol, with a good pub within walking distance, then this is it. Note that best route South is via Batch ring road that since early 2021 Bath operates a charge for entering the "Clean Air Zone". Private cars and motorcycles are exempt from the charge but check how your Moho is registered as it may incure a charge or worse be V5's as a commercial vehicle which attracts a heavy charge ! A short detour towards Bristol and bypassing Bath is the best bet, a bit of fuel but much less than the CAZ charge.

Can't fault it

Charity Barn
Really enjoyed our 6 nights at this super site. Services were all easily accessible, all hard standing pitches, level site, owners live on site, very friendly although we hardly saw them! Right on the common (free range cattle and horses but a cattle grid prevented them joining us). Lovely area and the bonus was the 4 friendly donkeys who love carrots, we will return again soon.

Peaceful and Relaxing

Charity Barn
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

Charity Barn
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.
