Why stay here ...

One of the most impressively located sites on the network, Tewkesbury Abbey Club Site is only a short walk from the charming old town of Tewkesbury. In fact, it's almost in the shadow of the ancient Abbey from which it takes its name. With superb mature trees screening the caravan park, you and your family will feel tucked away in a quiet dream of days gone by.

Tewkesbury Abbey Club Site makes it conveniently easy to explore the nostalgic delights of the old town on foot - there are many historic buildings, and interesting walks to be had, as well as some excellent museums. On Wednesdays and Saturdays you can track down the odd bargain or two at the local market, or if history is more your bag you can walk the Battle Trail commemorating the famous Wars of the Roses (1471). The caravan site also offers opportunity for the romantic - take a boat cruise on the peaceful river to experience the beautiful Avon landscapes. Other places not to be missed are the Cotswold villages of Broadway, Winchcombe and Moreton-in-Marsh. There are good transport links to Cheltenham, Gloucester and Worcester and a little further afield, the Malvern Hills and Forest of Dean offer great walking opportunities. The site also makes an ideal stopover if you're heading towards the south west of the country.

We look forward to welcoming you in the new enlarged and improved reception area. We have also constructed a brand new amenity block with modern bathroom and shower facilities with family bathroom. There are 50 new all-weather pitches of which 18 are fully serviced, new motorhome waste and service points, landscaping on site and other site wide improvements.

Hunt the pitch game!

i agree with all of positive comments about this site except for the finding of a pitch. We have arrived mid afternoon on two occasions and struggled both times to find a pitch. The second time, we did three circuits of the whole site, (closely followed by another unit doing the same) finding only one pitch which, had we used it, despite having a small motor home, would have blocked in the car attached to a neighbouring caravan. We admitted defeat and returned to the office to be given the numbers of the last three available pitches. Having checked these out, only one was available to us. My point is, when the site is so full, could the wardens not indicate which pitches are available to prevent this frustrating game of hunt the pitch.

Supersite

Stayed twice at this site - once pre-COVID and again in July 2020 for our first foray out into the world of COVID restrictions. It was with some trepidation that we embarked on this post-lockdown break but the procedures in place and the welcome of the staff made this a very reassuring and enjoyable time. This site has to be one of our favourite locations. Next door to the site is the Abbey, which is really lovely and well worth a visit. Tewkesbury itself is a very attractive little town right on the doorstep of the Club site with beautiful riverside walks and activities. The town has a very interesting history and there are plenty of places to eat and drink. It is much used as a stopover on the way to and from the southwest resorts but it really deserves an accolade as a location in it’s own right. The site is immaculately kept by the wardens who seem to be constantly at work and they are so friendly and helpful. A very reassuring introduction to a resumption of touring enjoyment once more.

Great stop-off location when travelling to Devon/Cornwall

Our first visit to this site and also first time out post-covid. Very friendly staff and arrival registration was well organised. We stayed twice for one night each at the beginning and end of our holiday down south as it was around half way for us. Nice to be able to walk in to Tewkesbury and see the old buildings and walk along the river bank. The arrangements for visiting the toilet block took some getting used to but as long as you planned the time of your visit we hardly ever had to queue. Possibly having hand sanitizer at both the food waste and water points might be a consideration. This was a very busy site but well organised.

Busy site

This was our first visit to the site, during the first few post-Covid weeks so it was bound to be busy! The wardens were very helpful and unlike other reviewers, we did not have any problems with dogs or other caravanners taking short cuts through our pitch. Loved the location next to the Abbey and within easy walking distance of the town centre (recommend Carousel Tea rooms on the High Street). One minor gripe is that queues built up for the toilet block so perhaps have a few toilets (separately) for quick trips? This is available in the Moreton in Marsh site and is working well there. Overall, a pleasant stay.

Not for us....

This is a nice site but we didn’t enjoy our stay and, having booked five nights, left after two. Sadly the rules don’t seem to apply on the Club sites like they used to. We had people continually walking across our pitch as a shortcut to the toilets, walking their dogs and generally just being lazy, despite the Covid information asking people to social distance by not doing this. We saw dogs defecating on pitches, including ours. Maybe we were just unlucky to be there at the wrong time. The dog situation really needs to be looked at on this site and others we visited. As an earlier reviewer suggested, maybe dog free pitches and no dog walking areas could be considered. Perhaps then I’d feel comfortable allowing my grandchildren to sit on the grass and not feel I had to bin anything I dropped on my pitch!
