 Fantastic site and so pleased we found it.

Toilets and showers spotless. We pitched on edge of lake and it was picturesque - of course the exceptionally good weather helped.

Would definitely visit again.

 Lovely location with watersports on the lake, a bar restaurant on site & the river Avon nearby. The bar was lovely, overlooking the lake & the staff were friendly & the drinks prices were really good.

The actual site was very busy & overcrowded & as our pitch was right in the middle of the main field our stay was spoilt by lots of large groups of inconsiderate people playing loud music & shouting loudly late into the night.

The toilets were not very clean, didn't see anyone clean them all weekend.

If you want to get together in really large groups you're fine but not really our cup of tea for a relaxing break.

Reviewer: Zakalwie 1 review from this member

 Just spent four nights with friends, we booked two plot with electricity. The plots were a great size, easily accommodating both cars, an event shelter and two large tents, with plenty of space left over.

It is a beautiful location in the countryside but easily accessible to Tewkesbury town centre (approx 10 mins drive) and Northway.

The lake is huge and we had a great time paddle boarding (£20/hr)

There were water taps close to the plot and the shower/toilet facilities were also close and clean. Only problem was the hot water, which went off for over a day.

We went Wednesday to Sunday and it wasn’t too busy until Friday but even then, there was enough space that other plots didn’t intrude or disturb.

Would really recommend this site and will be back.

 Over cramped, dog poo & rubbish left on pitch and a bit grubby shower/ toilet block. This might have been due to Covid UK holiday thing, but Wouldn’t return.

Bit like a holiday camp. Not really our thing.

 Just returned from a Brilliant fathers and sons group trip to Croft Farm - enjoyed by Dads and Boys alike. We stayed for two days in the log cabins.

Warm hospitality from really friendly and exceptionally helpful staff in all areas - from a warm helpful welcome at reception, to really attentive and charismatic staff at the bar & the restaurant, skilled and patient watersports team and at the gym (the gym is huge!)

Great atmosphere in the park - relaxed, safe and refreshing.

Our cabins were modern, clean and comfortable. Excellent VFM.

Many thanks to all the team at Crof Farm for a wonderful visit.

 We stayed at Croft Farm on our way back up North from a tour of Devon for two nights in a motorhome.

We booked a lakeside pitch which was lovely and although we had quote a bit of rain on our first day we still enjoyed watching the people out on the lake in their various boats etc. The toilet/shower block was in good order and very clean and all of the amenities we needed were a stones throw away which was very handy.

We didn't use the bar but it did look very good and the prices looked to be reasonable, my son and I went to the games room and it was in an absolute state which was a shame, it looked like someone had tipped a rubbish bin on the floor so we cleared it all up, the pool table and air hockey was £1 a go so not too pricey. There was a huge play area for smaller children which looked to be newly built and you can hire boats etc to go out onto the lake.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the site

 Spent a weekend here to celebrate my sons 40th birthday with a mixed age group including children we used pods, lodges tent touring caravan and camper van. Ours and the campers pitch were facing the lake so pleasant ground was hard so need rock pegs.

We used the club Friday he food was good and beer cheap!there was a disco on too. Saturday the rest of our family arrived one was in a lodge which was over £100 a night was charged £5 extra because they arrived early and had to be out by 10am. There is only one double so you are likely to get bunk beds.

We used the a lot of fun facilities on the lake they were a lot of fun but a bit haphazard on organization.

Lunch at the club was once again good value and dog friendly we had 3 with us!

Saturday evening we had a bbq great fun but all quiet by 11pm and had a peaceful night. Toilet block was good got messy but it had rained a kids were in and out of the water.

Overall the croft served its purpose of a great family weekend but no for a quiet relaxing one also no shop on site was a pain

Reviewer: Magmar 32 reviews from this member

 We chose Croft Farm for several reasons as we were taking our 2 grandsons (10 & 9yrs) camping for the week. 1) It was within 1 hr from home. 2)It had a water activity lake. And 3) We hoped that there would be lots of other children on site for our boys to make friends with and play with.

The majority of the site occupation is by a mix of static and seasonal caravans. (Most of which were unoccupied whilst we were there) There were a few lakeside pitches for tourers and tents.

The camping area is a mix of caravan hard standings with EHU and some EHU for tents. We were on the side of the camping rear with no EHU and did find that the area was little lumpy and pot holed. On the plus side there is a relatively new and excellent facilities building with showers, washing cubicles hot water etc etc.

Whilst we did expect to pay for the hire of water activity kit on the lake we were a little surprised that we had to pay to put an inflatable dingy on the water. £20 for 5 days negotiated down to £15 did seem a trifle exorbitant.

Certainly on other sites both UK and abroad that have a lake consider it to be a facility to be used at no extra cost.

We felt that having paid £28 per night that should have included the use of the lake. It would have cost £18 for a canoe for one our and in general we did not see many on the lake using the hired equipment.

Perhaps a sign to the owner that the costs are too high. We did feel that the camping area was not very checked had litter around and with the area being perhaps only 30% occupied mid-week and that the rubbish bins were overflowing was not acceptable.

The was a second facilities block which did have pot washing sinks right in the middle of the seasonal caravan area which of course have their own facilities on board. Why none had been included on the new facilities block when built mystifies us.

 We have stayed here on a number of occasions and always found the staff and site great value for money, this stay was even better.

Allan has added a new toilet/shower block to the smaller camping field making the trek to the main block a thing of the past.

All facilities are as normal very clean and modern a great site with loads to do and lots going on in the local area

Reviewer: Stevie-libra 1 review from this member

 An idyllic site, with plenty of level grass and hardstanding pitches (with or without electric hook-up). The Reception for caravan arrivals is not clearly signposted, especially as this is at the waterspouts centre, in a different direction to the caravan field. It would have been helpful to have received an information leaflet on arrival. As I didn't leave the site, I was unaware of a large enclosed dog exercise area until I was leaving. My little dog would have so enjoyed this facility instead of being walked around on a short lead when we went for a walk. I also didn't know about the cafe which I would have most certainly used. There is WiFi on the site but does not extend to the caravan fields. Judging by how busy the site was, I am sure it would be well worth whatever it takes to boost the signal. A fellow camper told me about a good shop and fuel station just a mile down the road. I will certainly visit the site again and get more from it now I am aware of all the facilities on offer.
