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.

One of the Best

Third visit to this site and it sets a benchmark for other sites to follow. Lovely friendly wardens who worked tirelessly to keep the place spotless. Good facilities and despite it being the August Bank holiday never had to to queue for toilets or showers. We stayed on a lovely spacious service pitch surrounded by grass and trees. Several vendors supplying takeaways, fish and chips, Pizza's and Steak and Friesland. Plenty to do in the area including some glorious Cotswolds pubs.

Excellent Site - Small Poles Welcome

Having read the previous review for this site (which you should do before reading this one) we arrived at Burford with some trepidation. You see, at 5’3” and from a small village in Poland , I was worried that my wife would not be accepted. We needn’t have worried. We were met by Penny (as mentioned in the previous review) and could not have been made more welcome. I can categorically state that Penny has nothing against Poles, small or otherwise! (or indeed any other nationalities from what I could tell). She was polite, helpful and everything you would hope for when checking into a new site. The site was clean and well tended. We couldn’t have really asked for more. Whilst there we visited the Cotswold Wildlife Park directly across the road from the site (this was something we hadn’t planned to do). I have to say how impressed we were. The gardens are spectacular and the animals live in lovely enclosures which allow them to be viewed easily and can be accessed by the public (where appropriate of course). The Lemur walk was so good we did it twice! It’s often confusing when there are very differing reviews but I was always taught to ‘judge as you find’ and our experience was a positive and enjoyable one - thank you Burford team!

Rude staff

Before arrival on our stay I had rang and asked if I could have a small pole delivered which would be used for our sun canopy (missing a pole) One of the 2 penny’s on the site advised me No on no circumstances was anything to be sent here and no one would sign for it and continues to huff and puff Over the phone at me ..and question the size of the box Not a nice start before our arrival ! Just very off with me over the phone unlike caravan club sites usually are Cirencester May I add the staff rare wonderful no problems there at all ! When I arrived I said about the parcel not being able to be sent I was disappointed with the approach as was only a small item I straight away had an apology from penny telling me she was wrong to speak to me the way she did and sorry for being “off “ Anyway I had the parcel delivered off my own back and instructions to call me when arrive i would walk down and sign for it myself .. I think this site also looks slightly scruffy round the edges compared to others , these wardens seriously need changing . Unimpressed ... back to Cirencester it is !

Comment from the Club: 

Thank you very much for your review of the Burford Site.The Club is assured that site staff continuously strive to provide a good level of customer service, and therefore we are sorry to hear that the service you experienced didn't meet your expectations. 

The Club is licensed as a touring Club and not for residential purposes, therefore, we would not be able to receive regular deliveries/post on a long term basis for members staying/or not staying on site.  We of course have no objection for site users being sent Birthday Cards, one off parcel deliveries etc. whilst on site,(as in this case) as long as the Site Staff are informed of this. However, if a parcel is being delivered that requires a signature, staff may not be available to accept delivery for this and cannot be held responsible, should there be any damage to the said item. We hope this has addressed your concerns.

We are going back for the fourth time in three years

Fabulous site. We are returning for the fourth time inside three years next week. It's the site we most look forward to visiting. I don't think we've ever had anything to complain about. Just a very, very good site. I just wish all club sites could be like this one. Staff are great. The pitches are nice and open. The facilities are good. Access to the site is easy. The wildlife park is a bonus, and it's a lovely place to visit for a day. Burford can get busy during the Summer, but it's just a little too far to walk to from the site, so parking can be an issue if you go when the sun is out.

Burford Pleasant site and wonderful location

We’ve stayed at this site a number of times, and again had a first rate visit. The site is well maintained, with pleasant and helpful wardens. Well situated for the Wildlife park, and discounted tickets are available from the site shop. We do have a car so getting about is no issue. Burford itself is a lovely place, and Witney which is only a 15 minute drive is a super place to shop and eat. Parking is free, which is always a bonus. We visited the Cotswolds woollen weavers, which is only five minutes away and is an interesting mix of museum and shop, selling some well made woollen clothing, and retro toys and goods. They have a small tearoom which sells a small variety of snack and cakes. Burford garden centre is near by, and sell a great range of goods. It’s is a little pricey if you fancy a meal of just coffee and cake. Our only niggle is the amount of space being taken up by some caravaners. We encountered a number of pitches where it was car , caravan, awning, large windbreak intruding well into the “firebreak areas”. One had even set up a badminton court making it difficult to get into the children’s play area. At busy times children can be noisy but didn’t really cause us any problems. We’ve all been children ourselves. I’ve only marked the location with 4 stars as you do need a car to get about. Burford is c10 miles away.
