Why stay here ...

Southwick Farm is situated approximately half way between Birmingham and Bristol (40 miles from each) and is located an easy 5 minutes drive from the M5 motorway. Our CL is an ideal place to break your journey when going North, South, East or West.

Southwick Farm is a peaceful site located on a family working farm in the Gloucestershire countryside. The site is located in a sheltered field with electrical hook-ups and space for awnings. Children and dogs are welcome at the site and a warm reception is always guaranteed. Ideal for visitors with motor homes.

Our site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. Close by is the historic town of Tewkesbury with its wonderful Abbey. There is also a reenactment of the "Wars of the Roses" Battle of Tewkesbury which is held in July each year. The town provides a selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and a supermarket. Visitors can also enjoy a lovely walk along the river Severn.

The main bus route is just a short walk away with buses to Tewkesbury, Cheltenham and Gloucester and all the surrounding district. 

The famous Cotswold Hills are a few minutes drive away offering stunning natural countryside and gorgeous Cotswold villages with a huge selection of eating places and a range of attractions too numerous to list. The famous spa town of Cheltenham with its famous Racecourse and Georgian architecture is 10 minutes away as is the county town of Gloucester with its Cathedral and famous redeveloped Docks.  Tewkesbury is 1.5m north of the site, only a 30 minute walk.

This is an area to suit all tastes.

lovely little site

what a lovely peaceful site! we were a bit wary on arrival as after a week of rain, we were worried about staying on grass. At our request, the owner, Mr Warner came to sort out some electric so we could stay on hardstanding. To be honest, the pitch here wouldnt have been great as it was alongside the barn with no views. Mr Warner asssured us that the grass was quite firm so we decided to stay on a grass pitch and hope that we didnt get stuck (the pitch was lovely and firm and we got off without incident despite a night of heavy rain). The grass pitches are lovely - set out in a little clearing with lovely views. We were the only unit on site so it was lovely and quiet and I cant say we heard any road noise. We took on walk to the Gupshill Manor pub on friday evening. A lovely pub but required a walk down the A38 which has a pavement of sorts but it was a bit tricky in places due to overgrowth so we were glad when we got off the main road. On Saturday we took a walk across the fields following directions from Mr Warner, into Tewkesbury. The walk was easy and flat and took about 30 minutes. We had a lovely time and a warm welcome from Mr Warner. At £14 a night, we thought this excellent value, and we will definitely be back. (re the dog comments on other reviews, sadly, the dogs do come onto the pitches and it seems that it is the neighbours at the adjoining houses that allow this; not sure if Mr Warner has any control over this - so do be aware if you stay here)

A good stop over CL

Stayed here one night as a stop over on long journey. Nice flat field though could be a bit squashed if all 5 outfits on site. Very friendly owner and the bin, water area are well maintained. I did think it was a little pricey for a CL with no WC. That said, we would stop here again if needed.

Lovely stop over

Thank you Mr & Mrs Warner, we needed a break from a long journey, Southwick Farm was halfway. Was a lovely peaceful resting place after a busy 10 days. Was not going into town, but took walk down lane a bus was due. So popped into beautiful Tewkesbury. Will definitely be back to stay longer at Southwick Farm and visit the surrounding area.

Expect a working farm and you wont be disappointed

Mr and Mrs Warner are the perfect hosts, in as much as they are not in your face but if you want advice or help they are there. The farm is mainly a crop farm and the only evidence is in July when they are hay making, Tewkesbury is about 15-20 minuetes away by foot and car parking in the town is cheap. Tewkesbury Abbey is well worth a visit and you can even take a well controlled dog in (on the lead of course) At £14 a night with EHU it's a good price ok there is no toilet block but who cares even the Elsan has a big flushing disposal point but the surrounding views are beautiful. This is the second time that we have been and it wont be the last.

nice place shame about the dog mess

We visited this CL for a second time recently. The first time we visited, the camping field as it is now, did not exist and we were parked in the farmyard with electric hook up in a nearby barn. This suited us well as there was no-one else there. This time the field was well appointed with pitches/hook-up and water nearby. Each pitch was a little bumpy so ramps were required to get level, but the area was nice and shady. Even though we were well off the main road there was still quite a bit of loud traffic noise-probably inevitable these days. Access was down a narrow single track road which served as the exit too-fortunately we didn't meet any other outfits coming or going at any time. The one fault I would find with this CL was the amount of dog mess we found on our pitch over the couple of days we were there. We had to clear it up daily in order to just walk around the area without treading in it. We are dog owners ourselves so found this pretty awful-goodness knows how a non-dog owner would find it. I cannot blame the dogs belonging to other CL users, I don't believe they were responsible as the owners were picking up, it appeared that dogs coming from nearby properties were responsible. Quite honestly this is unacceptable and is something that needs checking. We were also a little surprised to see a field on the other side of the access road also equipped to accommodate caravans and motorhomes. There were 3 other units in this field whilst we were there. I was under the impression that a CL was supposed to be a quiet location with a lilmit of 5 units? CAMC perhaps you ought to inspect locations from time to time?
