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.

Great site. Great location. Walking distance to town of Cirencester through a lovely park. Wardens and assistant wardens very friendly. Nothing too much trouble.

Lovely site but the wardens are unhelpful.

We arrived on the site to meet up with friends for the weekend. Our friends were 30 minutes behind us but we were told that we were not allowed to save them a pitch next to us. This is our second visit to the site which is lovely and in a great location, but the wardens are unhelpful and should be working for the fun police.

Comment from the Club:

Many thanks for your comments. Please note that any operational concerns can be raised with us as either feedback or a complaint for formal review by contacting the Club directly. We prefer reviews to be about the site rather than any complaints of service as complaints are best dealt with by the relevant team at the Club. As such please can you email UKSitesBookingService@camc.com and a member of the team will be able to investigate.  Many thanks.

Pleasant but pitches need dealing with

We regularly visit here out of the main holiday season as it is ideally placed close to home for a weekend away and Cirencester Park is handy for walking. However, as only hard standings are available at this time of year rather than grass pitches the Club really needs to widen the msjority of the pitches to enable a car,caravan & awning to fit the gravelled area side by side. At present it is expected that you park your car in front of the caravan but the pitches are not deep enough to get the car off the site road. Also when manoeuvring it is impossible not to damage the grass verge resulting in a nasty mess whenever it is wet, which it frequently is at this time of year. This must result in an additional expense to the Club which could be easily avoided. The layout of the site means there are several aspects to the one way system which given the number of motorhomes which went the wrong eay needs sorting out, probably with better signage. Otherwise the site facilities were of the usual club standard and several new incentives for dog owners have been introduced such as the Pit Stops and dog washes. Pity that the dog wash nearest the dog walk was not open and the hose piping at the one nearest the exit was so bad that the water dribbled out rather than flowed. Also it would help if it had a decent surface and some drainage rather than just muddy ground. Could do better! These things won’t stop us visiting but it is time some money was spent on this site to bring it up to the required standard.

Not the welcome we expected from a club site.

We arrived at this site at about ten o'clock, we had not booked but went there as members with an electrical fault on our motorhome which meant we had no 12 volt supply so could not even run the fridge on gas. We were told the site was full at that time but there would be a space available later. We enquired if we could park anywhere at all until a pitch was available but were told no, even though the late arrival spaces were all available. We have read so many good stories about how helpful club staff are but that was not our experience here. We don't think it would have been to much trouble to allow us to plug in somewhere for a couple of hours. Staff did direct us to a private site a few miles away.

A hidden little gem - Well worth a visit

Site is very easy to access from dual carriageways. Final 500m are a shared driveway that might need a little attention , but is not, I guess, part of the club site. The site is massive, and when we visited 21st October they had gone to all weather pitches, which we found fine. The staff were helpful and receptive to needs and recommended appropriate pitches, which were absolutely spot on. Facilities were clean and well tended, and usefully cleaned in the afternoon. The walk through the Bathurst Estate is beautiful, as too is the city. Cycle routes and walks are plentiful, but tucked away so look carefully. Cotswold Water Park is also very nice. We will take our dog next time. The site and city was recommend to us, and we totally agree without reservation that it is a well hidden site, with a 15-20 minute walk into the centre. John The Baptist church and city architecture and history is superb. Also Michelin restaurant "Made by Bob" is excellent - Don't miss it.
