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.

Why have we not been here before

Southwick Farm
What an amazing place this is. Friendly, clean, easy access, even with our large car/caravan outfit, this site provided exactly what we wanted for the end of our holiday. We amended our stay due to the weather forecast and so glad we added an extra night which allowed a complete and utter chill day, no fuss, no bother just peace, quiet and absolute tranquillity. Allowing to wander across the many paths and tracks on the land allowed for excellent dog walking and without even thinking 3 miles with my geriatric pair. Thankfully we parked under the trees which gave us some relief from the intense sun, that said I suspect if the weather had been different that would have been a different story. Only 3 miles from the M5 allows this absolute beauty accessible for those stop overs up and down to the south west or even if you want to explore the area more then this site is well worth a visit.

First Class C.L.

Southwick Farm
My wife and I ,plus Daughter ,son in law and two grandaughters, have visited this c.l. on several occasions, and we have always found it to be immaculate, E.H.U.,water, waste disposal and rubbish containers well maintainted ,clean and well maintained. Traffic noise is not noticable ,other than occasional sirens of emergency vehicles. It is a working farm ,which in my opinion adds to the "Country feeling." Owners and family are very friendly and sociable. We have been carravaning for over fourty years,and rate this as one of our favourite C.L.s.

lovely little site

Southwick Farm
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

Southwick Farm
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

Southwick Farm
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.
