Excellent site. The location couldn't be better in the centre of Tewkesbury the facilities are good staff friendly and helpful. Local Wetherspoons is very good too. We will certainly stay here again as it is a good stop off when going north or south. It does get full so I would advise to book early.

Met by very friendly site wardens upon arrival at the beatifully planted reception adorned with flowers. Our relatives had already pitched up, so we were advised that the pitch next to them would be free the next day if we wanted to stay in another pitch just for the night. This we did. Facilities were clean, a bit dated but in good working order nonetheless. Two blocks so there are always showers/toilets available. Quiet site, with plently of space between pitches, mature trees around the perimiter and in the centre added character but did not cause the site to be dark or over shadowed. Well maintained services, recyling, bins, etc.

The location is perfect if you don't wish to drive anywhere as the town of Tewkesbury is a short walk (10 mins) and has plently of shops for provisions or places to eat if you don't' wish to cook! We tried the Indian in the High Street which was OK.

Our first visit, and it's too far for us for a weekend, but will definitely consider this site for another 4-5 day stay, and even longer if we decide to venture out in the car further afield.

Another visit to this lovely site fantastic staff great facilities toilets are one of the best with privacy cubicles and good showers, there are two blocks with wash up laundry and waste disposal, reception sells basics and takes orders for papers. I did not see a play area or any children when we were there. A short walk into town with all the shops you need a supermarket a beautiful home made bread shop and plenty of restaurants, we had the best Indian ever at the Rahj, lovely river walks and boat rides. There is a bus stop at the side of the Abbey which is well worth a visit. We use it on our way south and as a stop off to wind down. I am sure we will be back.

This is a very well kept Caravan Club site, yes the toilet blocks are a bit dated but were always clean and the site grounds maintained as you would expect from the Caravan Club. All pitches are grass and quite a few are very un level ! The site is very well located being just a 5 minute walk from the town centre with all the usual pubs, shops & restaurants (weatherspoons across the road) The downside is the constant industrial machinery noise from the adjacent plant (started at 7. 30am and silence finally fell at 6pm) the other issue was the regimental style in which a couple of the wardens ran the place was seen on numerous occasions telling members off for parking incorrectly and we were shouted at by the man for taking a 5 meter short cut on the one way system, neither were ambassadors for the Caravan Club which is a shame as you rarely come across such rude abrupt CC staff anymore !

It's exactly what you can expect from a caravan club site with excellent security given its close proximity to the centre of Tewkesbury, yes the facilities are dated but they are numerous clean and perfectly functional. Left at the exit from Gander Lane and you will find an Aldi within 2 minute drive, Morrisons near motorway junction, Tesco metro at the other end of the high street. Pub's restaurants and takeaways all within waking distance. Good flat walks along both the Avon and Severn rivers, Ledbury and Gloucester both approx 12 miles away so plenty of options for a change of scenery.

16 amp ehu no issues with free view or satellite reception mainly flat grass pitches, levelling blocks needed for a small number of pitches. Good playground just outside of main entrance for the little ones.

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.
