Why stay here ...

One of the most impressively located sites on the network, Tewkesbury Abbey Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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 position - friendly warden

Tewkesbury Abbey Club Campsite
We had a 2 night stay recently to break a journey between Yorkshire and Dorset, this site was ideal as it is close to the M5 and is walking distance into Tewksbury for shops/pubs and restaurants. It was easy to find and on arrival the warden met us at the barrier, he was friendly and gave us information on which pitch markers to look out for. The site is clean and well looked after, the toilet/shower block was modern and very clean with good facilities. It is a bit tight to manouvre onto some of the pitches we saw the majority using motor movers. Most people seemed to be like us staying 1, 2 or 3 nights to break a journey and we would stay again for that purpose

Our favourite site

Tewkesbury Abbey Club Campsite
We always love coming here. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, especially Dawn and Mick. Dawn always remembers us 😁! The location is amazing, a very short walk into Tewkesbury. Easy drive to Gloucester, Cheltenham, Worcester, Upton upon Severn etc. or the buses are handy too. Tewkesbury has many good shops, pubs and restaurants. An added attraction is the Roses Theatre. The Avon and Severn rivers make for a lovely walk to watch the boats. Shame it can’t open all year but you’d need a boat probably! Renowned for its flooding later in the year.

Tewkesbury - July 2022

Tewkesbury Abbey Club Campsite
Absolutely fabulous site. Facilities spotless, and outstanding flower displays. Exceptionally warm welcome by the wardens, and you are checked in, asked to select pitch and then come back and pay - great approach. It is a busy site with lots of people using it as a stopover. While there is no dog walk on site, there is a huge playing field just outside the site, where we could walk the dogs. The town itself is really interesting and lots of easy walks round and about. Definitely worth a visit and we look forward to returning.

Great site, but maybe a little over priced.

Tewkesbury Abbey Club Campsite
Lovely welcome by the wardens, found a pitch we liked. Clean and well kept site. Can’t fault it. Great location to explore Tewkesbury, very close to the town. Tv reception was poor. Just feel the club sites are over priced for us, we had a hard standing pitch with EHU, didn’t use any of the facilities, for one night it cost £33!

Great Wardens

Tewkesbury Abbey Club Campsite
We intended to stay here for an overnight stop on our way to Cornwall. However, our motorhome broke down & we had a nightmare with the RAC (20 hours wait) & ending up staying for 2 nights. Dawn & Mick were fantastic, supportive & helped us see the funny side of a stressful situation. Dawn changed our bookings for this site & the next site (Tintagel) to save me having to do it & allowed us to stay on the same pitch. The site itself was lovely, clean & well cared for & we would return without hesitation. Tewkesbury is a lovely little town to visit too.
