What an excellent site!

The site is very well maintained and run by friendly staff. Some may disagree with this as they are also strict about where you can and can't pitch but for us that is fine.

Tewkesbury is on the door step as is the the park and dog walking area. Dogs can be let off the lead almost outside the gate and love romping around the park area.

There is lots to see and do with many towns and beautiful villages surrounding Tewkesbury which in itself is great.

We didn't eat out but did walk to the chippy one night. The portions are enormous. A large chips will feed 4.

It is a busy site as many folk just use it to overnight on-route but it never once bothered us in our week on site.

Highly recommended.

Come to this site often as its central for sightseeing and shopping and good transport links. I read previous comments re wardens didn't have a problem in fact they were very helpful. Agree re toilet block it could do with make over can't speak for ladies but gents loo's not well maintained but then wardens are not there to flush loos after people every day was greeted by unflushed pan wonder if they do this at home. They have been rather drastic with the pruning of trees don't like the exposed views from the flats some late night noise from that area but otherwise peaceful site. One other gripe on some pitches people pass very close to your outfit when short cutting to loos or exit even when your sat outside eating etc.

Just had an enjoyable 5 nights at this lovely site. The welcome we received was very friendly, although there were comments that some of the staff were very rude. We'd originally booked 3 nights and decided to extend it on arrival, but the 5th night wasn't available. Luckily, they had a cancellation late on the Friday afternoon, so we were slotted in.

This is the first Caravan Club site we've been on with only grass pitches and were wary of getting bogged down. However, despite some rainy nights, none of the many motorhomes had any trouble on leaving.

Despite some comments on here about it being crammed in, we had lots of space around our pitch.

Possibly too much, as a couple of the caravan owners used our space as a short cut for their car access and kept driving over our hook-up lead. (Isn't this classed as a lack of courtesy?)

The facilities were up to usual Caravan Club standards and the location for the town is excellent.

We can heartily recommend the Nottingham Arms for evening meals, as we ate there on our last 3 nights. The quiz night we got roped into on the Thursday was good fun, but be warned. You won't get back to the site until after 10:30 p. M. And if you've forgotten your gate key, you'll be sleeping under the stars in the nearby playground!

The area is really good for cycling, as there are segregated cycle tracks leaving the busier parts of town, before emerging onto quiet country lanes and quaint villages (and moderately flat too!).

We did find it a bit expensive at 22+ as it was still classed as peak season the week following Easter.

We've used this site as a stop-off on our way down to the West Country, this was the first time we've stayed more than one night. The reception block has a fantastic display of hanging baskets which must surely have won awards. The reception block itself is on stilts, due to the threat of flooding, just google 'Tewkesbury floods' to see for yourself. The site is really close to the town centre, so some noise can be expected, particularly on pitches around the edges. On the other hand, on a summers evening, it's great to sit outside and listen to the sound of the Abbey bells and the gentle thwock of leather on willow from the adjacent cricket club.

Tewkesbury is an old market town with lots of interesting buildings, shops, restaurants and pubs. There are boat trips as well, which we haven't yet done, but plan to visit for a longer stay next year.

I have only 2 small gripes about this site which stops it getting full marks, the site itself doesn't have a dedicated play area for the kids. There is one very close, but it is outside the fences as it were and open to the public, to my mind it doesn't feel quite as safe and secure. And, the pitches do seem crammed in just a bit too much, we were shoe horned into a corner on a pitch that was supposed to take an awning, but there was no way we could get it up (ohhhh matron!).

We overnighted here on our way down to Devon, unfortunately we went in early July during that monsoon type weather.

After setting up we spent the night trying to sleep under the noise of hammering rain. The following morning we were woken by site wardens to be told that we had to be off the site inside one hour as flood water was on its way.

You can imagine the scenario about 100 vans all packing up like headless chickens and trying to get off site get refunds etc.

All that aside Tewkesbuy is a lovely site, all facilities are great as per Caravan Club standards with good pitches well laid out,

There is bags to do and see in the area as well.

Definitely go back again given the chance.

Brilliant location with many interesting towns and villages an easy drive away. Tewkesbury itself is a really pretty town and is well worth a visit.

The CC standards have slipped a little for this site. Little or no hot water to toilet block taps in the mornings / broken toilet seat in handicapped toilet stall / damaged toilet block door - left damaged. The entrance gate was damaged whilst I was there and this caused a bit of confusion in the evenings when exit gate had to be used via a 'swipe key'.

Site suffers from local flooding and in the rain site tends to get very soggy easily.

I have used this site as a 'half-way' stop to Devon and Cornwall for many years but will find another stop in future.
