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.

Cramped Site

We chose this site as a one night stop off on the way south to Cornwall. As such, it fit the bill. Close to the M5 and easy to get to. It is almost next to the Abbey and 5 mins walk into town (once you work out the quickest route!). The car park next to the CAMC site has a warning about seasonal flooding, which I presume may extend to the site itself. Caveat Emptor! Facilities are new, large and very clean. Grounds are lovely but there are limited cut-throughs for getting to the main toilet block & you end up looping on the site roads. The layout is tidy but (as others have said) don't expect much privacy. I think this is the most cramped site I have visited and you'll definitely feel close to one another. That said as a transit site, it works well.. drop the steadies and stroll off for a takeaway in town. I'll probably go back if I need a stop off but Cheddar is much more appealing in this respect.

Excellent

Excellent site, 4 day stay. Location excellent, loads of Pubs, Eating Establishments on the door step. Walking excellent, walks map will be supplied by Reception. Reception Staff are some of the best I have come across, nothing was too much trouble. People moaning about the bells, forget it, can hardly hear them..... We had a Full Service Pitch, one of the best I have come across, very large. Pitch turnover seemed high, no doubt people using as a stop over going South/North, 2mls off the M5. Overall thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be returning.

First Visit, First Impressions, First for Location

Found this site on first impression to be quirky, new style block paved pitches, some of which are classed as hard standing but no awning permitted, then some multi surface, which is part block paved and part grass, then the usual grass pitch or gravel pitch as well as serviced pitches. This means to be sure, when booking of what to expect, a check of the site plan would save distress or complaint as seen by some reviewers here. The facilities block is new, well laid out, easy access via steps or ramp as it is raised up due to being flooded in the past. The bollards are also double the usual height for the same reasons. No bending needed here. The wardens very good.

Great Site/Location/Clean. What more can you ask for

Just had a weekend at this site and cant believe some of the negative reviews that people are writing. Bells are too loud - are you having a laff ? This is a working abbey, the location is one of the main reasons you go there, because it is close to the abbey and the town. People playing music and having a good time on the site - are you havin a laff ? Why do people go away in their caravans. To sit moaning all night. Get real. Cricket club music too loud - we sat outside on Saturday evening thought it was great change TBH Toilet blocks too far. I must say, after the amount I ate and drank whilst trying to keep in tune with the bells at 2.00am each morning, I never had an issue making it to the toilet. If its too far, use your toilet in your van/MH or carry a doggie bag. What is wrong with some people. Go out, let your hair down and enjoy yourself. There are fields in the middle of nowhere that might be more suitable, but then you would probably complain that the grass is too green, the sky is too blue, or the water is too wet. ;-)
