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.

What a Difference

A warm welcome on arrival from the very friendly wardens. We had booked a service pitch so we could use our own facilities, which worked well. Nice wide pitches but being a 8.5 metre motorhome with a fence behind us meant it was difficult to open our back garage door as the pitches are nice and wide they are not as deep as we are used to on the private sites. The whole site is so very different to when we were at Tewkesbury before. The site used to be all grass with lots of trees and roots making pitching quite difficult to get level. It's now very open with some new planting, there are still some grass pitches and multi surface pitches as well as the service pitches and all can been booked on line. Wardens worked very hard seeding the grass pitches for next year. We were really lucky to be able to visit the Abbey, just beautiful inside and the gardens are amazing with a fantastic twisted old Hazel tree. Beautiful walks around the Mill and Victoria Gardens as well as into the village.

a little disappointed

First visit back since site refurbished and didn't realise unless you booked a serviced pitch that the remaining pitches are grass which is not great at this time of year. There are multisurface pitches but you put your awning on the grass. As you can imagine the grass pitches were very muddy! Another thing which spoiled the stay was that even though 4 people were allowed to use the washrooms out of 9 toilets only 3 were open and same with showers out of the 9 only 3 open! Haven't came across this at any of the sites we stayed at this summer - the number of facilities matched the number of people allowed in...... Apart from my moan it is in a good location to walk into Tewkesbury and walks around the riverside,

Epitomy of a well managed Caravan Park

We have just returned from a five night stay at Tewkesbury and were delighted with how well managed the site is in spite of the current pandemic restrictions. Although many of the customary local attractions are closed or operating at less than full capacity there is still much in the area to occupy the visitor and arouse interest. The wardens have a free list of easy to follow walk instructions and we were able to sample some of them with no map needed. Nearby towns such as Gloucester, (you have to visit the regenerated docks area) and Upton upon Severn with its plethora of river side pubs are both easily cyclable following the Sustrans Route 45 which is mostly on quiet lanes once away from Tewkesbury town.(OS Explorer Maps Recommended). Unfortunately theatres and Tourist Information Centres remain closed due to Covid 19 restrictions but at least Tewkesbury Museum is open in the afternoons from 1.00 pm. Great fish & chips from The Abbey Fryer in Barton Street which can be pre-ordered by phone to be ready for collection. Even in mid autumn this is a great place to stay. Our multi surfaced pitch was large although it is requested that awnings are pitched on the grass at the side of the block paved 'van parking area. The site sanitation facilities appear to have been refurbished three or four years ago and the showers are the best that we have seen in the past 12 years staying widely across the network of Caravan & Motor Home Club sites. Well done to all the staff at Tewkesbury for all your efforts in maintaining a very high standard in all aspects of the park.

Always love coming here "BUT"

Always love coming here "BUT" this time we got a little cheesed off with the wardens having a go at one couple in a American RV. talking to him he said last time he backed in but was told to drive in because of side door was on, this time he drove in & same warden ( big guy with bandage thing on leg) told him to turn around AGAIN. then another warden had a go because on his way to the main gate his dog did a poo ( which he got up) Are we suppose to tell the dogs to stop? Others around said there were fed up of the wardens having ago the people in this van as it was spoiling there time too. normally such a great site.

Quick stop

A great place to stop when enroute home from Devon up the M5 as only a few miles from the motorway. Big site which was full when we arrived so our pitch and been preallocated. We tried out the multi surface pitch which was great, block paving plus a grass area. Bells from abbey every15 mins was very noticeable as we were in our campervan. Would be less of an issue for caravan and Motorhome owners. Large area to walk dog off site but nothing on site which means some owners were using grass beside pitches for early morning or late at night. Need to remember to take your fob to open pedestrian gate too before 7.30am. Would be good to have a small on site pit stop area for dogs like Cirencester has. Dogs welcome in the abbey which is only open 9 to 1 at present. We had a takeaway curry delivered to site which worked well. Menu in information room. having bands in a bucket to use facilities works well, as unlike other sites people didn’t seem to forget to put them back . There were queues at peak times but nothing major.
