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.

Another great stay

Our second visit, and we thoroughly enjoyed again, this is a great location particularly for motorhomers as the town centre is so close by. Just to address the review from the last person about how bad the entrance road is, please do not be put off, all you need to do is drive slowly, we've definitely experienced worse. Considering we've had so much rain recently that probably hasn't helped, the drive is pretty wide so plenty of room for other people to pass. WE are very keen cyclists and again see no problem with a few pot holes you just have to look where you are going. There are many positives about this site which is typical of a MCC site, clean, well maintained, functional, and friendly helpful staff. You know what to expect, all sites in the club are pretty similar. What we love about this site is the beautiful Bathurst Estate parkland which you are free to walk through between 8am and 5pm, 15/20 mins and you're in the town centre and what a pleasant town it is. Plenty of nice places to eat and drink very dog friendly. Then if you need to walk back from town after 5pm the footpath is really wide, also a cycle path and well lit enough to get you back to site easily.

BEWARE OF RISK OF DAMAGE TO YOUR OUTFIT

The access road is riddled with deep craters and potholes. During our visit on the last weekend of the 2019 season a speed bump had disintegrated and a piece was left upturned on the road with stud fixing bolts pointing upwards. Our motorhome tyres could have easily been punctured, not to mention the risk of damage to suspension components. There is a particular risk to cyclists and motorcyclists especially during hours of darkness. My complaints to the club hierarchy have just been shamefully batted away because the access road comes under the jurisdiction of the Cirencester College Campus. There is no way that this site should be reopened until that appalling road is fully repaired. Please be aware of the serious risks that are posed if you are planning to visit this site.

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.

Site information

This Club campsite will open from 4 July 2020 and will be adapted to the new social distancing and safety requirements set out by the UK government. Our priority is first and foremost the health and safety of our staff, our members, our guests and the local communities.

Despite the Club, the Tennis Club and the Cricket Club submitting their objections to Cirencester College relating to its proposed new access road earlier this year, the College submitted a planning application and undertook the works to form the new access road in May 2020. The application and subsequent works failed to address the various Clubs' concerns specifically relating to the boulders and the blind bend close to the start of the access road. The Club has been working with the College and Bathurst Estate (the Club's landlord) to try and identify a mutually acceptable solution to address these issues. The solution needs to balance the College's need to ensure the safety of its staff, pupils and visitors with the various Clubs' needs for a safe and manageable access to their sites. The Club's Head of Estates has held two site meetings with the College's Operations Director over the last 2 weeks in order to try and rectify this issue ahead of the site reopening on 4 July. A further meeting with the College and the Club's contractors was held on Tuesday 30 June to agree and mark-up the proposed solution on site. The works, once finally agreed, will be undertaken as soon as possible thereafter.
