Why stay here ...

Set in beautiful Grade I listed parkland, Cirencester Park Club Site is a peaceful oasis that forms part of the lovely Bathurst Estate. Great for walks in the surrounding natural landscapes or picnics under the shade of statuesque trees, the caravan site is also close to the thriving market town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in England during the Roman occupation. The town offers attractions for the whole family from shopping and sampling local food treats to visiting nostalgic landmarks such as its picturesque church and well kept museum.

Cirencester Park Club Site also puts you within easy reach of the lovely Cotswolds - perhaps one of the few areas we have left of untouched English countryside. Here you can easily spend many enjoyable hours exploring the warm limestone villages and charming little towns, whose prosperity was built on the wool trade of centuries past. All in all, the caravan site offers an unforgettable holiday escape into traditional British landscapes.

Follow the arrival and departure advice.

Cirencester Park Caravan Club Site
Much has been said in many reviews about the access road and the large stones and from our experience of visiting this site those concerns are fully justified. Do follow the arrival and departure advice, if you don’t then you could face some difficulties! The site itself is starting to look a little tired as are the facilities albeit the wardens had started to grout the male toilet showers when we were there. It is as described a very large site with some spacious pitches, but if you want fully serviced you really need to book well in advance. Of over 200 pitches only 16 are fully serviced and considering the cost of caravans why are there so few fully serviced pitches to allow full use all the equipment vans now offer. The Wi-Fi on the site is also very poor. The site is well located in regard to Cirencester and the Cotswolds in general, with a lovely walk into Cirencester through the park, though there is apparently a move to charge access to visitors in the near future. The site could perhaps do with some investment.

Good location, lovely site and helpful staff.

Cirencester Park Caravan Club Site
Second time of staying. Good Location walking distance into town. Clean and helpful staff. Lovely meal on Tuesday evening, African BBQ chicken, different meals on offer most evenings. Quiet site, we do go away in the week and avoid school holidays, can't control other campers behaviour. Not sure on comments on the road. New road surface, with passing places and if you follow the guide lines and arrive and leave between times given did not meet anyone coming in the opposite directon. Will visit again.

Lovely site and staff

Cirencester Park Caravan Club Site
Our first visit to this lovely site. in view of other reviews regarding the access road to the site we were concerned about meeting other road users but we arrived at 13.30 and left at 10.30 and did not meet other vehicles in either direction. A friendly, and helpful warden, with a great sense of humour, dealt with registration swiftly and positively. The site and facilities were well maintained throughout our stay. The main dog walking area is very large and the grass cut short making it easy to clear up. Good for dogs and members to socialise. The site is next to Cirencester park, which is good to walk in and through to Cirencester. The town has a good variety of shops with M&S Food in the town and both Tesco and Waitrose on the outskirts. A market takes place on Fridays. This is a good site for visiting the Cotswolds.

Nice site, shame about the access road.

Cirencester Park Caravan Club Site
We stayed here for 3 nights in September. The access road is diabolical, and certainly not for the faint hearted. If it were not for the large boulders, some hidden in the long grass, this would be far easier to negotiate. The site itself is lovely. Nice sized pitches, and lots of different areas to choose from. The walks from the site through the park and into Cirencester are lovely and a visit to Beano, the airstream coffee shop, is a must. Sadly despite the site having a wonderful large dog walk, where dogs can run off lead.. people still abuse that facility and leave their dogs mess behind! Why do people think that this is acceptable behaviour? It is no wonder that some sites do not have a dog walk at all, and that so many places to visit do not allow dogs. 🥺 We arrived on Wednesday, and it was lovely and peaceful both that night and on the Thursday. On the Friday night, when we walked our dogs at about 9.30 pm, there was a group of young families having a get together opposite a toilet block. The young children were flying around on wheeled toys and little dogs chasing after them with no leads etc. We felt for the one warden on his cycle, who was trying to see which units the various children and dogs were from. Luckily we were on another part of the site, but had we been nearby, i would have felt quite uncomfortable about the situation. It would seem that club rules are becoming very hard to adhere to. Such a shame, as we tend to choose the club sites as I am an anxious person and like the security that has previously come from using them.

I was enjoy my stay up to day 18 of 21.

Cirencester Park Caravan Club Site
When arrived at the site I asked the protocol for parking my vehicle as some of the pitches where small. The answer was either at the side of the caravan or at the front if you have an awning (as per the instructions on the leaflet). Like a good caravanner I erected the awning and assessed the space at the side to ensure I could park there, which there was. Taking into consideration I have not travelled very far in 18 days due to the fuel shortage. One day 18 I take my awning down at this point the car has moved 3 times in 18 days returning the same spot each time. Within 2 hours of taking down my awning the 3 not 1 not 2 but 3 members of staff are at the door of the van giving me a polite talking to regarding my parking of the car suggesting that I park at the front of the van or at the side where there is room for the awning. If it was the police on the street stopping me I would consider it harassments. I did highlight the above to the team of 3 and that I felt it was a little heavy handed and late in the day after 18 day!! This put a downer on what was up to this point a lovely stay.
