 Really welcoming hosts with extensive local knowledge lovely, quiet and relaxing vacation.

We pitched close to the toilets so perfect spot, facilities cleaned everyday and didn't have any issues with access just remember a few 20p's for the shower.

Close to pub at Great Rissington though didn't use, within walking distance of Bourton on the water a popular village with variety of shops.

Would definitely visit again

 Myself and a friend stayed for 2 nights and was meet by Bill the owner shortly after our arrival, he was a Gent, the site is a credit to his hard work at keeping the site pristine,

Toilets are cleaned every morning and sanitised, the facilities are just about right, only enough for 15 pitches in total,

At our time of staying a few caravans and motorhomes were already pitched but left plenty of room for our two tents and two cars,

I can highly recommend Bills site for a short stay or even just a stop off on your travels,

We will stay again when we travel to the area with our bubble cars.

 Very clean and tidy. Only 5 caravans and the facility was perfectly adequate.

Very friendly and helpful owners.

Will definitely be using this again.

Beautiful views down through the valley.

 As we write this review we are sitting on the site enjoying the morning sun. We called the site yesterday needing a pitch for the night. We were told, obviously, there was availability for us and to find a pitch when we got there and the owner would see us later. The last thing he said on the telephone was to “look out for the giraffe in the tree”. The advice helped!

We didn’t miss the entrance and as we pulled in we found two fields, one for caravans and one for tents and camper vans. We pitched up and about an hour later the owner came, with Maisie, for a chat, and his money. £13 was the fee without electric.

I was expecting to pay £20 so this was a real bargain. The facilities didn’t disappoint either. With two toilets and two showers, they were clean and basic. The showers work off a meter with 20p lasting 3 minutes, or £1 for 15 minutes.

The site itself is a little hilly but the owner has plenty of chocs for levelling around the site. There is a washing up sink and CDP.

Overall, our night stay was very satisfactory at a good price and we would recommend it to anyone needing a couple of nights in the Cotswolds.

 I cannot recommend this campsite highly enough. On arrival we were met by the site owner who was carrying out duties. This person went above and beyond my expectations as he went out his way to ensure all campers had full use of on site facilities. He also pops around each camper for a quick chat as well making sure everything is in good order. The camp site is spotless and well maintained. The facilities are basic but perfectly adequate. The camp site is hilly but there are plenty of chocks available to help with the levelling of any unit. The location is perfect for visiting the Cotswolds as we found out. It is peaceful and quiet. We will be booking again. This site is a gem.

 We normally stay on sites that cost twice the price of this site and in all honesty cannot see what we have been paying for! This is an absolutely beautiful site, stunning views, very friendly four legged 'neighbours and the site owner is very friendly and helpful. Such peaceful surroundings and the site facilities whilst basic were always kept clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning.

 A very peaceful scenic site. Yes it is on a slope with uneven ground, that's the beautify of the Cotswold Hills. There are plenty of chocks available on site to help with levelling and it's possible to get it near perfect. The owner will provide advice on how best to park to take advantage of the fantastic views. We've got a large twin axle, if we can manoeuvre anyone can, woman driver too! There's a good pub in the village and plenty of places nearby to cater for all interests. You can walk for miles from this site. The loo and shower block is basic but clean, some soap and a hand towel would be a bonus. Good to see the rubbish well screened and recycled. If only we could have a house right here we'd be forever happy.

 Having been a caravanner for over 30 years I have not come across a site as difficult as this for on getting on and off both pitch and site.

The site has a steep slope with steep ridge and furrow going down it. This make it very difficult to manouver without grounding the van, in fact our fellow caravanners did exactly that.

To make this worse the site was made damp by early morning dew making traction on the hillside very difficult - I can't imagine what it would be like if it had rained heavily.

A small motorhome had to have assistance each morning to get off the site whilst we were there.

Ours and our friends van are both 23ft long, and I would only recommend this site for smaller unit because of these issues.

There are two clean combined shower and toilet cubicles however the showers have no proper drain and so flood the cubicle.

Additionally the shower is coin operated with the coin box OUTSIDE the cubicle.

This means that if your money runs out mid shower you are in trouble - make sure you get undressed before you put your money in as the shower starts as soon as you do!

This site is ideal for location, tents, trailer tents but stuggles with all but the smallest motorhomes and caravans due to the inclines.

 Stunning Area and Very Friendly Campsite. The caravan field is on a fairly steep slope, and the tent field is very bumpy! its full of something called Ridge and Furrow (google it!) Limited EHU available.

Very quiet campsite, no play-area, hot on recycling everything incl food waste. A small shed area with 2 rooms, each one consisting of a loo, shower and sink. Showers are on a pay meter. Very basic 'cold water only' washing up available. ELSAN waste point.

Fab for a weekend, but wouldn't want to stay any longer in a tent with our kids! Might be easier in a c'van. Loads of walking and cycle routes on the doorstep and a lovely village pub within easy walking distance. Dog friendly site and ponies in the adjacent field.
