Beautifully situated across open fields with the glorious Tewkesbury Abbey in full view, this campsite is definitely one of the most superbly positioned sites I've been to. Ideal for dog walking as the adjacent fields are perfect for safe off-lead dog walks plus plentiful dog-poo bins.

Facilities at this site are not up to Caravan Club's usual standard however they are been completely upgraded from October to June 2017 (the site will be closed during this period). Once completed, this site would achieve the highest rating possible. Hook-ups were easy and plentiful and the site had a very pleasant feel about it. There were a combination of caravans, motorhomes and a sprinkling of tents. And lots of very well behaved dogs. The bins/water etc. Stations were plentiful, clean and tidy and well signed. It was a bit (very!) irritating to have to carry a bundle of keys with us everywhere - to enter the site and use the facilities block so hopefully, once renovated they will just have the cards - as most sites have.

Wardens were pleasant and very helpful, particularly as my friends' small campervan had a flat battery (on departure) and the warden was only too happy to come and sort it out (huge thanks are due).

One of the best children's playgrounds (local authority owned & maintained) I've ever seen was just outside the entrance gates on the edge of the extensive open grassed area (being mowed as we left) and thankfully there were remarkably few dog messes on the grass.

Tewkesbury is a glorious little town with much to see on foot. The Abbey is stunning, the river walks are a must (even ferry trips on offer). Excellent dog-friendly pubs plus cafe's with outdoor seating making it easy to enjoy a good coffee in the town. A very good market on Wednesday's.

The Tourist Office was one of the best with a wide range of leaflets. It is a town with the most amazing number of charity shops plus a huge number of fascinating and intriguing alley ways - ancient architecture abounds. No one could ever visit Tewkesbury and say there was nothing to see or do! The surrounding countryside offers visitors plenty of great places to visit and spectacular views.

Good overnight stop off but the site is in dire need of updating. Hard standing pitches for starters would help. The ground was very soft and there were lots of tyre marks in the grass where vehicles had struggled to get traction. Wash room facilities whilst clean are tired and need an upgrade. The access isn't great now there is a development on the approach being built and the local council need to chop back some of the trees and bushes that overhang the road. Motorists on the approach roads seem to park where they want including on double yellows which makes access at busy times very difficult. Then again it was an overnight stopover and we left early on the Saturday. Wardens cheerful and helpful.

Just had 5 days at this site. Although the ground was soft the motor home was parked on pads so no problem. The wardens were very helpful and very friendly and nothing was too much trouble we will go there again.

Fantastic site very well kept and in an awesome location only 2 mins from town

Will be returning

Facilities dated but always clean there's no play area for children but there is a park just outside of the site right behind the abbey

Wardens were excellent and even took newspaper orders and croissants fresh on a weekend which were lovely

Tried for some time to actually get a booking on this campsite and we were not disappointed. The site itself was suffering quite a lot from the excesses of rain and was cutting up in places. I felt a great deal of sympathy for the wardens with the continuous flow of units coming and going not helping matters, in fact I think it is the busiest site we have been on.

The facilities that people seem to complain about were spotless if not the most modern.

The town itself is well worth a visit, and of course the Abbey.

We had a meal in the local Italian Restaraunt which we can highly recommend.

Would definitely benefit from hardstandings, but I believe the site is council owned so maybe not allowed.

Would we go back there, yes if we can get in.

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.
