Reviewer: Uncle Festa 15 reviews from this member

This is probably our 4th visit to this site but, we won't be returning. We've been to Caravan Club sites up and down the country, even in Scotland, but found this to be the worst by far.

As previous reviews have said, the wardens are far to officious and run this site like a military establishment. We'd innocently parked outside of marker post and we genuinely thought the foot we were out really wouldn't be an issue. We were wrong. I had a warden phone me, then a visit by 2 more telling me I'd pitched outside of the marker post and it would need to be moved. The owners of the caravans on the adjoining pitches also had the unwelcome visit.

What should have been a relaxing weekend turned into a trip where we couldn't wait to leave. It was such a shame as the site itself is wonderful. It's location is perfect for a gentle level walk into town. We even managed to enjoy watching a game of cricket at Tewkesbury Cricket Club next door. The restaurants in town seemed plentiful and we enjoyed a fantastic curry in one of the pleasant Indian restaurants.

We really do like Tewkesbury, but we go away for a restful peaceful break after a hard weeks work. Unfortunately, due to the wardens on this site we'll try others nearby, even if it means a 30 minute drive back to Tewkesbury.

We visited this site during the late October half term holiday.

The site itself is just a short walking distance from Tewksbury town centre. Access to the site is very good, and when we arrived we were met with a very warm welcome by the wardens, even though they were very busy.

It's certainly not the quietest site I've been to. Due to it's location, you can always hear a low hum from local traffic and the M5 which is just a mile away. You also get the once every 15 min chime from Tewksbury Abbey, which didn't bother me but did bother some.

The facilities on site are to the usual CC standard, yes the toilets and showers are dated as others have mentioned, but they are always clean.

My only gripe with this site, and it is minor. The grass needed mowing. When walking to the wash block the wet grass would get your shoes wet very quickly.

I would have liked to see a children playing park on site, yes there is one close by offsite, but one on site would have been a bonus.

If you're after a site where you can park up your car for most of your stay, this is certainly the site for you.

Very clean and tidy showers and toilets, secure environment. Easy to find. Friendly staff. Walking distance great for town shops and pubs.

Abbey right on door step. Ace site. Will be back in summer. Bus stop right by abbey if you want to explore other places. One of the best sites we have been to this year.

Stayed here in early September. 3 in MH and one friend in a tent. Very busy site but was the perfect location for access to the town.

Wardens were friendly and helpful.

Facilities a little tired and could do with a re-furb but still more than acceptable.

It is a short walk into the town centre which is very nice. Good selection of pubs and restaurants. Plenty of other things to do as well; the Abbey is very interesting; the River's Avon and Severn very near by.

Whilst we were lucky with the weather, we had a great few days away.

Have just returned from a weekend at this site and were very impressed.

Location: perfect, town literally around the corner with bus stop very close.

Facilities:very good, clean and tidy at all times.

Pitches: we were fine but as they are all grass, may be a little worried if there had been heavy rain.

Wardens:Very pleasant and helpful.

We will definitely return.

Reviewer: Tockers 28 reviews from this member

Stayed for a week in july with a motorhome and young children. The site is not the best laid out site I have been to, to get to the showers etc you have to cut across pitches and some people do not like that. They are all grass pitches with electric and some taps dotted about however there is only one tap for motorhomes and it can get busy the drain is also at the same place right near the entrance so can cause disruption in vans coming in and out. The showers were hot but do need an update, the loos also need sorting out they took ages to refill when flushed and did not always flush properly. Caravan club rules apply here, park correctly and don't do this or that etc. Location is why we stayed here close to shops and swimming pool and cinema. Kids park in field next door. Site was quiet for july not full, lovely array of flowers at entrance.
