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.

Tewksbury Abbey

This site is perfectly situated next to the abbey, town and a large playing field. We found easy access for everything we wanted to do, especially dog walking in the spacious field and along the river. A popular site that looks very busy and full most of the time, possibly due to the lack of trees/partitions between pitches, however this is not a problem to us but may be a busier times.

Refurbishment is good but could be better.

Just spent 2 nights there in our motorhome. I appreciate all the work that has been done in the refurbishment but it's not the first time that the club has done a site refurbishment so why are there problems with the underfloor heating? It's a well known fact this type of system has a slow response time and should be left running 24/7. Very cool inside inside and not helped by extract system blowing air in over toilets! "Energy saving" handryers definitely saved energy blowing out very little heat, taking up to 2 minutes to warm up. Why only have 2 chemical toilet disposal points? One in the main facilities (up the stairs in the main facility) really cramped for space and inadequate floor drainage for the run off from the anti-syphon hosepipe fitting. The second disposal point is on the side of the site furthest from the entrance not very handy at all. Possibly worth some further work. After my moan, still think it is a great location. Try The Bell Hotel, opposite the Abbey, good food at lunch time, warm, comfortable friendly staff and pet friendly.

Pity about the freezing cold toilet and shower blocks.

We have stayed on this site several times this year as we have family in Tewkesbury. We have just returned from an extended stay on site. The wardens are always cheerful and helpful and the site is clean and tidy. It’s location close to the town centre is brilliant. The floral displays near the reception area have been lovely over the summer and autumn. There is more work to do on the site following its redevelopment this year, extra landscaping, planting and pitch levelling in some areas during their closed period. The biggest drawback for us was the freezing cold toilet and shower blocks. The outside temperatures were freezing in the mornings and there was cold air being circulated from the ceiling vents in the blocks. The tiled floors in the shower and sink cubicles were freezing to stand on in bare feet, in all not a very comfortable experience! We reported it to the wardens several times during our stay but unfortunately there was no improvement at all. May be that the heating systems in the new building are not functioning as they should and are on the snagging list!!??

Not brilliant or up to usual standard

Just had a week here & the first thing to note is that the pitches are very close together, as in not side by side but opposite. This means you will not be able to reverse into most pitches without a motor-mover. Having a service pitch was fairly pointless on the first morning, as the water in the bollard was frozen and as a note to the designer - waste will not run uphill - so don’t make the entry point higher than the pitch itself Although the toilets are large and clean, they are extremely cold. If you need to persuade things to happen, it’s pointless as you are not concentrating on that & to expose your body for shower hhhhmmm - good ad for underfloor heating? Or just use your own facilities It also has to be noticed that the bollards are very high (6 feet) I don’t see why they are so high as I guess you would have left way before then or this is for the Club because this is a high risk flood area. There no safe play are as the one just out side is a druggies haunt & there in nothing on site.it is good for dog walking though

Improved site

Having stayed here before the recent site improvements, I must congratulate the club on the layout of the site, gone have the trees that split the site in two, gone have the two old toilet blocks, incoming is the new look reception, the new toilet block, new site layout, and much awaited large hard standing fully serviced pitches. Well done to the club.
