Perfect c.l.

Have stopped on this c.l. several times now, and it just seems to get better each visit. On arrival you immediatly feel relaxed and away from it all, and yet you are within walking distance of Tewkesbury, a lovely town, Gloucester, and Cheltenham are about 10 t0 15 minutes away by car, and public transport is close by. Perfect base for visiting the Cotswolds, Royal Forest of Dean, and only about an hour and a quarter to Bristol or Birmingham. Family and staff always very friendly and happy to assist with any small problems you may have, pitches are spacious, flat and generally well drained. As c.l. go this is one of the better ones we have visited during our 35 years of caravanning.

One of the best!

My husband and I have visited here on many occasions with our two young girls and I can honestly say it is one of our favourite CL's. Very easy to find from the M5, and located on the main route between Tewkesbury and Gloucester, access is easy. (only about 100m of country roads to navigate!) Approached down a long private drive it is set well back from the main road and is very peaceful. There is always something happening as it is a working farm, but this in no way affects tranquillity of our stay. Always a warm welcome from Mr Warner, his family and the staff, who are also happy to help if ever there is a problem. Pitches are level and well sheltered with trees and bushes, well maintained and generous in size. Plenty to do in the lovely town of Tewkesbury, including river cruises, the abbey, lots of high street and boutique and antique shops, coffee shops and restaurants and takeaways for Friday night tea! It is also well sited to visit any of the picturesque Cotswold towns. We will definitely be returning on many more occasions!

A real gem of a site

Just off the A38, this is very convenient for visiting Tewkesbury, Gloucester and Cheltenham and surrounding areas, and for also going further afield, eg into the Cotswolds or Forest of Dean. The site has water, waste disposal facility and electric hook-up and despite being a working farm, wasn’t noisy. Finding the site was slightly confusing as there’s a turning off the drive and the site is straight on; a signpost/arrow would have made things obvious. Also the owner’s property isn’t the building by the site but is down the drive and again a notice would have made this clear. However, there is a sign welcoming you and inviting you to pitch up on arrival and pay the next morning if arriving late. The owner passed by on horseback the next morning and was very friendly. All in all this is a fabulous little site and one we definitely hope to re-visit in the future.

Not much to do in the area, rude owner & staff

We were met on arrival by a farm worker who, when we asked about TV reception said, "You're supposed to be camping". The camping field gets very wet and boggy. The hard standing appears to be a bit of roadway near a small barn and the hookup for it is a CEE16 socket dangling from a 13A plug behind a door held closed by a couple of bricks. There are fairly constant comings and goings including police cars to and from the adjacent cottages and what we assume are industrial units as well as farm traffic. There's also noise from the nearby main road. When the owner eventually turned up on horseback he just shouted at us from on high and at a distance indicating he wanted his pitch fee. He subsequently passed disparaging remarks about our unit. Definitely wouldn't go there again.

Good for visiting Tewksbury

This CL.is indeed ideally situated for visiting Tewksbury,Cheltenham & Gloucester,plus all the surrounding villages. It is a very 'orderly' site with well defined pitches and facillities.Good signs and information,about a local pub. It is a well maintained flat grassed area,but no hard standing,surrounded by trees and hedges. The views from this site are limited to mostly farm buildings. The owners are very welcoming. It is worth noting,however that they are available at the large farmhouse,which isn't the one immediately on view when entering the site,but next door a little further down the drive. This is a busy working farm,which was very evident when we visited recently during the 'hay making' season,so there was a constant stream of farm tractors passing the CL.site. However,we didn't find this a problem and quite expected some noise when staying on a farm. The buses run every 15-20mins.from the end of the farm drive.
