Stayed here Friday to Monday for the Fairford airshow. Pitched in the Glade which was mostly quiet, bit of traffic noise but that did not bother us, no cars allowed in here which was nice, had to leave them on the main field, could take in to load/unload etc.
Facilities were basic but clean, the chap running the site was very pleasant, and if you saw him on a surf board on a beach somewhere, you would not be surprised. There is a very limited 'shop' in the booking in hut.
We will be returning to the Cotswolds in the future, and will definitely be returning to this gem of a campsite.
Second review of this site so I'll annotate my original review:
We visited as a group of 2 - in a tent and a folding camper. We had children aged between 6 and 10. The weather was OK on night one and then misty/drizzly!
Toilets and showers - basic - just a row of rooms. Very little privacy from next door noise wise. No heating - open to the elements. However, spotlessly clean, and hot water at all times.
Sinks - Open to outdoors, no private cubicles. Same for washing up. But, hot water and clean.
There were two amenity blocks - my comments only refer to ours, but the other one actually looked nicer.
Noise - the area we pitched in was very close to the road. It was noticeable but not annoying in the day and evening, but did disturb us slightly as we drifted off and when I woke at about 5am. Other fields (non-EHU) were much further from road and probably quieter. Some lorries beeped their horns as they passed - dangerous corner or their idea of fun?!?
Space - plenty of space to pitch - we had a field to ourselves as the site was almost empty. We had EHU so had to pitch in a particular area, but if you didn't need that you could have had masses of space.
Climbing centre - amazing time had by kids there. Staff very amenable to us using their wifi (thankyou!) Low-ropes course now open to campsite visitors at all times - kids loved it.
EHU - brilliant supply - halogen oven & kettle simultaneously. New EHU points since last year.
Stuff for the kids to do - nothing on site other than the climbing centre and low ropes. However, ours had a great time playing ball games and making dens in the trees.
Campfires - controlled fires were permitted in BBQs and firepits (available for hire). We bought a bag of logs on site and used wood from felled trees dotted around the site
Staff - friendly and helpful. New couple this year.
Dogs - no roaming dogs.
Location - lots to do in Bourton on the Water. Easy site to find, close to main roads.
Site was clean and tidy. We would definitely return.
Note - long grass had been cut and not all picked up (machinery fault) so bring a doormat and crocs to slip on & off!
We enjoyed our stay on this well kept site. The warden was relaxed and welcoming and very helpful.
We didn't not use the facilities but everything did look clean and our friends seemed happy using the them.
Close to the attractions of the Cotswolds and close by to Bourton on the water.
Whilst the Warden told me over the phone that road noise was not really an issue, it can definitely be heard even on the furthest field, as we were in a caravan we did not hear it at night, but during the day you would notice the trucks going by.
The most disappointing thing was the bulldozer or other heavy machinery at 6:45 am on a Saturday morning! Not much of a lie in. There were industrial units on site.
Turned up on Thursday afternoon for 3 nights, and were allowed to pitch where we liked. We chose The Glade (no EHU) as further away from the road and were the only unit in the field that night. Marvellous.
Shower/toilet block spotless, always plenty of free hot water and no queues, though could imagine this would not be the case on a busy weekend.
A few large groups of young couples, but not too much noise after about 10pm.
Our 3 year old was in his element, finding dens in the trees and running around looking at towbars.
We used the site as a base to walk further south in the Cotswolds so didn't explore the immediate area, but an excellent base to visit the well known villages of Burford, Bibury and Bourton.
Visited here as a base for cycling in the Cotswolds. Very well located for this, with a number of rides right out of the campsite, with Bourton-on-the-Water, Bibury etc within easy access, both on and off road.
Northleach is 2 miles away, and has 3 pubs, and an excellent butcher who was very friendly and knowledgeable on places to visit and pubs serving good real ale in the area.
The campsite itself is very well kept and managed, with the toilets and showers scrupulously clean (although we were there mid week when it was quiet, so can't comment on peak weekend conditions).
There are a number of separate areas on the campsite, offering a different 'feel' rather than one large space which was really nice.
Owners/managers very helpful and accommodating, fetching wireless access codes from the climbing centre so we could keep in touch with our youngest daughter who was in France for the first time away without us.
A small note about this, we initially chose this site as it is listed as having 'internet'. This is in fact just a wireless modem in the climbing centre, so you can only pick up a signal in close proximity to this, nowhere else around the site. The owner was however most accommodating and said if we needed internet access, we could use the pc in the centre.
