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.

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.

Great Peaceful Site

Wonderful site with great hardworking, friendly, helpful wardens. The peace and tranquility of this site is fantastic. Birdsong, dominates the sound, very little road noise and wonderfully landscaped and maintained site. Showers and toilets very clean and well presented. There is a toilet block and an annexe. We originally thought there was only 3 toilets for the whole site lol, but we had found the annexe. Right next to The Cotswolds Wildlife Park and you get discounted tickets from reception. The area around is so picturesque and stunningly beautiful. We cycled into Burford, Kenton and Shipston to the Rose &Crown pub where we had a delightful lunch. Fabulous site give it a go.

location disappointing

we stopped at Burford for the first time as a 1 nighter en route to East Anglia, it also served a purpose in checking out the suitability for a future long weekend. Easily located as in previous reviews, planes and animals didnt disturb our sleep. Shower block and facilites standard club amenities with blue shower curtains, compared to other facilites in the leisure industry they are all needing bringing into the 21st century. If you have a car at your disposal then this site is fine as a base for exploring the Cotswolds but if you wish to walk from the site, the town is just over 2 miles away on a busy road with no safe pavement or verge to walk on, especially when accompanied by dogs. We didnt check out the bus routes as we decided that if we were to stay near Burford again we would use Wysdom Touring Park which is easily accessed from the town on foot we have since learnt from personal recommendation. Finally the dog facilites, more dog welcoming than dog friendly, a small, short, narrow off lead area. There is a larger area for them but as its open plan they must be on lead. Shame they couldnt adapt this area for the kiddies play area and have the current kiddies area as a large off lead exercise area for the dogs. The way we holiday with our current situation/set up we wouldnt use this site again for anything more than a stopover. This site is fine for caravanners or motorhomers who are happy to take their vehicles out, but not great for walkers/cyclists
