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.

Outstanding Site

Tewkesbury Abbey Caravan Club Site
First time to stay here, (Oct 21) sadly for only two nights, but what an excellent site, the staff are hard working and so polite and helpful. The site is immaculate and all pitches clean and well maintained. Its location could not be better, there is a playing field, children's park and exercise area just outside, lovely dog walks and you can even walk or cycle along the river. Two minute stroll into town which is bustling with antique, charity, clothes and very well stocked book shops and so much more along with many restaurant's and pubs etc. The Abbey, just outside, is a must to visit, it is outstanding, I cannot begin to write about its awe inspiring interior, you will know why when you see it believe me. The site facilities for recycling, water points, waste points are great and the all important toilet and shower blocks are spotless and second to none. Highly recommend this site for a stop over or longer stay. Such a pity it closes for the winter but cannot wait to return for the 2022 season. Credit to all the staff involved for the upkeep of such a beautiful campsite. Andrew C.

Multi-surface pitch booking

Tewkesbury Abbey Caravan Club Site

Just by chance a pitch or two became available at Tewkesbury and as we needed an overnight stop I found I could actually book a pitch type in the form of a multi-surface one. This eased my mind as grass at Tewkesbury can be a problem as the days get damper and shorter etc. These pitches are block paved, quite different from what we expected but absolutely fine. Not sure how people get awning pegs in but there was evidence they were hammered in between the joints. It was good to book a pitch type! Tewkesbury itself has improved since the devastating floods, more shops and eateries now thriving. The site is maturing after redevelopment. For the first time I attended a service at the Abbey. A sung evensong, quite beautiful choral singing, bringing alive six hundred years plus of music in the Abbey. Only eight of us there to hear this daily ancient event but personally worth the effort and also due to my own local family connections.

The best in 2021

Tewkesbury Abbey Caravan Club Site
Our first visit to this lovely site for a four night stop. A recommendation from my sister who should have joined us but circumstances prevented it. Easy to find, good pitches, absolutely first class facilities. So nice to be on a site that is most definitely within walking distance of the town. Wardens and reception staff couldn't have been more helpful, not that we had any problems. The toilets and showers are kept spotless and the facilities for waste disposal were excellent and plenty of recycling. We will be back

Lovely and interesting locatiin, worth more than one visit

Tewkesbury Abbey Caravan Club Site
Wardens great at managing so many changeovers, find your pitch first, then go to the reception so no long queuing at the entrance. Great access for dog walking around the adjacent vineyard playing fields and the Ham. Sheep do graze at the Ham, wear boots! Easy to walk to town centre to explore and shop. Also used the site to visit nearby Cotswolds while we were there. Some pitches at risk of damage (motorhome) when water logged but some good all weather pitches and full service pitches. When extreme weather passed over, wardens managed the grass pitches well. SWW installing new main drains next to site, some mud and noise but not major. Abbey rings its bells but again not obtrusive. Well worth a proper visit, we will be back.
