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.

GOOD EDGE OF TOWN LOCATION

Ideally situated on edge of town. The new facilities block is very nice, but no thought given to those less able in the planning. As said elsewhere the initial reaction is that most pitches are close to the toilet block, this is not the case and there are no short cuts or walkways, so be prepared for a long walk. This appears to be due to cramming in pitches around the central area and the landscape planting, which I am sure will look very nice in time, but for those less mobile does not allow easy access. We felt the site has now lost its character because of this and will probably not return. Would recommend the Italian restaurant it is excellent, great food well priced and the Berkeley Arms a proper pub no frills with excellent beer. The Abbey is well worth a visit and a walk around the town to see the many beautiful old buildings.

Another great site.

What an excellent site. Fantastic location for Tewkesbury and the Abbey. Brilliant off site dog walk with acres of fields (and a cooling down river🐶) Spotlessly clean well maintained site & toilet block and very friendly, helpful wardens. - Oh yes and an amazing floral display on the office wall area😁. We’ll definitely return.👍🏻.

Peaceful it ain’t

Everything up to the usual standard of Caravan Club. Brilliant location. Wardens friendly and helpful. Good for dogs as parks just outside the site. Our first time here. Settled down on Thursday, hottest day of year. At approx. 6 pm, Abbey bell ringers started. It’s nice to hear church bells, but these went on until 9.30 pm. Had breaks of about 5 mins, thought they had finished, but then they started again. The next day, someone started practicing their recorder for approx. An hour, and they really did need the practice! That stopped and then the local cricket or rugby club had an outdoor presentation and party, which was loud and a lot of cheering. Although not near to us, when going to reception or the toilet block, there was a group who were playing loud music, you might know the type, no tune just bass blaring. The last night, the pitch two along from ours, decided to have a gathering, loud talking, laughing and swearing starting at about 9.30 pm and ending at 4 o’clock in the morning hence very little sleep. On leaving, we informed the wardens and they did say that we could have contacted them 24 hours, the number was on the back of the site map which we didn’t realise at the time. Obviously the bells and the cricket club are out of their control.

Twee and fab for old codgers

Well my wife had her first hot shower here since the refurbishment. The new facility block is modern but unfortunately only has access from one side only. On our side you had a long walk around all the pitches. There should be easy access from both sides hence the blackboard warning at the gate about not walking through (quite rightly so) other peoples pitches. Overall the newness is twee and the site has lost a lot of its old character. However it’s neat very clean and friendly with hard working wardens who never sit still!

great location

Used as a stopover from Chesterfield to south Wales. Easy to find and easy to access from M50/M5. Site good for walking into Tewkesbury and accessing bus services. Wardens very friendly and helpful and have clearly worked hard to make the site look lovely with all the flower displays and maintaining all the on-site services. I much prefer toilet blocks being cleaned after dinner, as was the case here, as closures mid morning always seems to be when I want to use the shower. We were on the new multi purpose pitch and didn't feel cramped or hemmed in by other people's outfits. We wanted to stay a few extra days and wardens tried hard to keep an eye out for cancellations but sadly there weren't any before we had to make the decision to leave as planned. We will definitely be back to explore the area a little more- if we can get a pitch ! Thank you to all the wardens- you do a good job !
