Why stay here ...

Burford Club Site is an attractive and spacious destination, with well landscaped pitching areas, children's play area suitable for all ages and pleasant dog walk. It is conveniently set opposite the beautiful Cotswold Wildlife Park, a popular family attraction in the area with rhinos, zebras and leopards - your children will be enchanted. The Brass Rubbing Centre, superb gardens and narrow gauge railway - all are must see attractions making for a fantastic day out. All the more tempting with the added bonus of discounted tickets being available at the caravan site reception.

Burford itself is a beautiful unspoilt Cotswold village, located conveniently near to the Burford Club Site. Populated with the warm, honey coloured stone buildings characteristic of the area, this small and sleepy town is a delight for families to discover. The caravan park is also close to the village of Bourton-on-the-Water with its Motor Museum, Model Railway and fine traditional pottery making.

Burford Golf Club is about a 5 minute drive from the site and offers a good challenge whatever your handicap. The Rose and Crown at Shilton just over the crossroads has excellent cask beer and serves top quality food. Bilbury and the wool town of Northleach, with its church and eccentric collection of mechanical music are also conveniently at hand during your stay on this wonderful site.

A warm welcome makes all the difference

We've been touring continually for the last 18 months and in that time have been met with various scenarios on check in. We're pleased to say that at this site we were met with a very warm welcome and smiley face by Assistant warden Penny Jessop. It makes all the difference and started off our stay on a very positive note. The site itself is in a fairly good location for touring the local area, the pitches were level and of a good size, the site was clean and tidy and the facilities were kept very clean too. The only negative (or it could be a positive if you love planes) was a lot of noise during the week with air traffic from the nearby Brize Norton... the other noise we heard especially during the evenings was from the nearby (across the road) wildlife park … in the still of night you could often hear a roar from one of the big cats which was lovely. On leaving we were waved off by Mr & Mrs Jessop and the site warden... thank you for a lovely stay.

Lovely Cotswold Site.

We have stayed at the Burford CMC site several times now, and its one of our favourites. Easy to find, with a wide access, there are no narrow lanes to tow down to reach it. The booking in process was quick with friendly staff greeting us with a smile. Having stayed before, we knew where everything was, so didn't need the introduction talk. The grass piches, like many sites, are taken out of use at the end of the year, but there were plenty of hardstands for us to choose from during our October visit. The loo block was immaculate, with all the usual CMC facilities although we didn't use the showers, preferring to use the one in our caravan. Cleaning of the loo block was done in the afternoon, which we felt was a sensible time, as we were usually off site then. Reception has the essentials if you run out, but there is a small Co-op in Burfords main street, and a Morrisons and Asda (with cheap fuel) in nearby Carterton. Opposite the site is the Cotswold Wildlife Park, with discounted tickets available from reception (cash only) There is a car park in the centre Burford, but it can get very busy and I would think only suitable for cars, very small motorhomes or camper vans. It involves going down some narrow streets to get to it off the main thoroughfare. Near the car park is the magnificent St John the Baptist Church. Well worth a visit, and attached to the church is a lovely cafe that does excellent meals and drinks with a garden bordering the river. We have enjoyed several meals there, and they have all been excellent. There are plenty of pubs and other places to eat and drink nearby as well as the usual assortment of antique shops and other rather pricey independant shops. There are many other lovely places to visit in the Cotswolds, too many to mention here, but as NT members, Hidcote Garden is one of our favourites. The gardens are beautiful at any time of the year. We shall be back next spring, to this lovely site.

Regular Customer

We love this site and return many times a year. Although you can get a discount at reception for visiting the Cotswold Wildlife Park (just over the road from the entrance), we have taken out a Season Ticket. BTW they allow dogs, which has proved very successful for them eg a keeper told me income is up by over 35%. Why don't more Zoos follow its a winner? The site is well managed and up to the normal high standards of a flagship C&MH site - no complaints and you will not be disappointed. My only request is please consider opening all year round - I'm sure you would get the footfall to justify this - after all, the Wildlife Park is open all year plus Burford is only 2 miles up the road and has Motorhome parking (if you know where to look) and draws a lot of people over the Xmas period.

Great site - friendly helpful staff, excellent clean facilities

We were novice caravanners in our first week with a van and staff were helpful and friendly. Facilities spotless and very good - modern and spacious. We used both the visiting pizza and fish and chip vans and both were really good, and good value too.

Disappointing visit

Very disappointed as we drove onto the site as grass was very long and hard standings badly needed weeding. Rain could not be used as excuse as we live very local to site and we had not experienced abnormal rainfall in previous weeks. Another downside was that the toilet annexe was kept closed for the whole week as the warden had decided that the site was not busy enough to open it, (me thinks so that they did not have to clean it) resulting in that at least 3 morning the women had to queue for showers. This has never happened in the 10 years that we have been using the site. Also the dog bin had been removed from outside the toilet block which left dog owners disposing of dog poo in general dustbins. There was a noticeable lack of warden activity on site while we were there but hopefully next season will see a new set of wardens who care as most of them have done in the past.
