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.

Sadly This Site Is Going Downhill

Been visiting this site for years now and unfortunately we find it to be far below the standard it used to be. The hardstandings are overgrown with grass and weeds. During the last couple of weeks of the season all the grass pitches were closed but the site was 'full', surely more money could have been made for the Club had more pitches been made available. I observed one poor lady in the shower block struggling to shower her child and having to leave the shower door open to do so - she had been told the family room was closed for redecorating, we had been on site for days and there was no sign of redecorating going on, neither was there on subsequent days. The disabled room was not up to standard at all, with ceiling panels missing and the drain for the shower was dangerous in that there was little to no grout around the drain itself, leaving sharp edges on which disabled people could have cut themselves and the shower head was leaking and had been stuck together with some kind of clear tape, this is only a few minutes job to replace either the whole thing or just the shower head. In general the toilet blocks were cold with not always a clean look to them but a strong smell of bleach after the 'cleaning time'. We have visited other sites much further north later in the year and when the outdoor temperatures have been much lower but their toilet blocks were always warm. The whole site shows a general lack of maintenance from peeling paint on entrance and exit barriers to weedy hardstandings and overgrown grass. This site is situated in a wonderful location, there is some noise from the nearby Cotswold Wildlife Park and RAF Brize Norton but neither of these really spoil the site. However the lack of care now given to the site by the current and some previous wardens leaves a lot to be desired. Remarks have been left in the comments book - which on occasion have somehow 'disappeared' also comments left with the wardens but the only response we got was 'We are only here for this season so it isn't really up to us.' I think it is up to them, we all pay for these sites and in the past we have been given a certain standard, which is sadly now lacking at Burford. The only reason we return to it is because we have family very close to it.

Lovely site for a Cotswold visit

We stayed at Burford in our camper van (2 adults, 2 kids under 8) in early November, just before the site closed for the season. The kids had a great time gathering windfall apples from the enormous apple tree, and playing in the lovely wooden playground. The staff were welcoming, and facilities were clean and warm. We'd definitely stay here again if visiting the Cotswolds.

Burford Caravan site

Very helpful and cheerful wardens. Site well maintained and toilet block clean. I would endorse all the positive reviews. Only 4 stars given for facilities due to the fact of service points were limited in certain areas of the site.

Great wardens

Just returned from our first visit to this lovely site but hope it won't be our last. The wardens were the friendliest we had ever had the lady warden greeted us with a wave and smile every time we went in and out of the site. The toilets and lovely hot showers were always clean no matter what time of day or night we used them. The site is in a very good position for visiting all the Cotswolds and the site is only 2 miles from the lovely shops in Burford. Thursday night is steak night, Friday is fish and chips and Saturday is pizza so all tastes are catered for. The peace is only interrupted every so often by the big planes coming and going from Brize Norton but we found them fascinating, we also had hot air balloons and a red kite could always be seen somewhere flying over. The WiFi was extra but very reliable unlike other sites we have used. The showers were always clean with unlimited hot water. This is a lovely site and worth a visit.
