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.

Excellent site!

Location is great with easy access to Cirencester Park and the town centre. Being able to leave the motorhome behind was wonderful as we could walk through the park and into the town. Whilst letting dogs roam in the park was difficult, the site dog walk provide a secure area for them to run free. Westonbirt Arboretum is in easy driving distance which made for a great day out amidst the amazing autumn colours. We had only planned to stay two nights but found the area so attractive that we extended our booking. Overall, we would fully recommend the site and will be returning.

Disappointed

We arrived at Cirencester mid afternoon and had difficulty getting into the site because of cars parked in the narrow road and vehicles leaving. The narrow entry road which I believe is not owned by the club is very poorly maintained. On site the recently renovated service pitches were well maintained, cleared of leaves with the grass cut around them. The majority of the normal hard standing pitches are very narrow and looked like neglected gravel covered weed beds with long grass around them. Most of the pitches around the perimeter were only visible due to the peg sticking out of the carpet of leaves and weeds The site was busy and the rubbish bins were overflowing and the service points were deep in slippery leaves which were also blocking the waste points. (This was not cleared or cleaned during our six day stay) The cleanliness in the toilet blocks was adequate, with no hand washing soap and were not up to the usual standard we’ve come to expect from club sites. We haven’t visited this site for many years and were very disappointed to find it now appears to be very neglected.

Good for Walking

This site being located in Cirencester Park is ideal if you want to leave the car behind and walk around the beautiful park and also through it into the Town, which takes about 20-30 mins and is all relatively flat. We walked loads over our 4 night stay. We stayed on a service pitch which I believe are all quite new and I couldn't fault it. The site is again kept to an excellent standard of cleanliness. The only downside was that as it was coming to the end of their season, the shop had very little in it and you had to pay cash for any items. And no gas! Luckily our cylinder although showing empty lasted us until the end of our stay. This site is a good base for exploring the Cotswolds, and Cirencester is a lovely town, but we do love the Moreton in Marsh site and also are going to visit Burford site next time to see what that is like.

Brilliant site, shame about the selfish early arrivals.

We loved this site. As usual it was up to an excellent standard. We stayed this time on the service pitches which are ideally placed for the toilet blocks. The only thing that spoils things are the selfish caravaners who insist on arriving early before 12 o'clock. This site has a narrow, very potholed access road which makes it very awkward for the caravans leaving up to 12 0'clock ( which they are perfectly entitled to) to negotiate the access road with selfish caravaners trying to get in as early as 1130. We had a very similar situation at the Wirral Country park a few years ago. Because we were going to be early I pulled into the services to time my arrival after 12. When we arrived at 1215 there was no queue in the tight lane, so I asked the warden. Apparently it had been chaos from 11am with the lane being blocked, so they had let all the early arrivals on to clear the blockage. We ended up with two pitches to choose from! The club can make the rules but it's up to members to do the decent thing and abide by them! Rant over.

Small pitches

Enjoyed our recent stay here (21 nights), however the pitches are not up to normal CAMC standard. Most pitches on this site would be classed as non awning pitches on other sites. They are narrow, caravan & awning ok but not really long enough to squeeze the car in front of your pitch if you have a long twin axle. It is a very shaded site. I understand previous comments now about walking across other people’s pitches. The path from the back of the shower block just stops after 10 slabs and you then have no other option. Also to use the chemical point near our pitching area you had to weave through the pitches and trees ! The WiFi was slow and I believe is only bronze level. The TV signal (from the bollard) over the last few days kept dropping out. The approach road has appalling pot holes but I do accept this is a private road. There are also scruffy rundown buildings along the road. It is a busy area during peak college times and not fun if you meet another vehicle ! Cirencester is a lovely town and a very easy 10 minute walk. The Park and estate are fantastic for dog walking. The sites own dog exercise field is excellent. The oven fired Pizza van on Thursdays is excellent food. The toilets are cleaned during the afternoon which is fantastic and should be a must for all sites. Best of all is this site still sells newspapers, the only site we’ve had this option on in the network this season. Would I stay again ........... quite possibly but I wouldn’t rush back
