 Excellent site as always, pitches well kept, top class facilities, friendly staff and a short walk into town.

Easy to get to from the M6 and loads of pubs and places to eat in Tewkesbury.

CAMC so not cheap

 Looking at the past reviews, it looks like it is mainly me who reviews this site and here I go again!

We always use the Tewkesbury Abbey site when we are doing a long journey up and down the M5/M6 as a single night stopover.

The site is so conveniently situated, just a mile or so off the M5, that it makes a great stopover.

It is also a short walk into Tewkesbury where there are lots of cafes, pubs and restaurants which is handy if you donít want to cook.

The facilities are very good. Everything is clean and tidy and the wardens are friendly and helpful.

The site doesnít have much soul, it is just a load of hardstanding and grass pitches without any charm.

We had just spent the previous week at a beautiful site which was like staying in a garden with hedges and flowering shrubs between pitches so the contrast with Tewkesbury is very stark but as a place for a stopover, you couldnít find better.

 A site that overlooks the abbey and is within walking distance of the town.

It is a fairly typical club site whereby strict rules state when you are allowed to arrive and where and how you can park on the allocated plot.

There is no on site shop for basic essentials and wifi was hit and miss.

The abbey was worth a visit but the town can be explored within a couple of hours or less.

 The site as usual was very nice with clean facilities

Some wardens need to more user friendly

The caravan club as a whole is totally letting its members down regarding the pricing structure now in place. I understand from talking to previous visited sites the Club is some 20% down on bookings. This I believe is due to the inflated pitch and guest fees levied by the club. Itís about time the club got back to basics and looked after is members !

 We have stayed on a lot of CAMC sites and this is the only one that we would NEVER go back to.

The prices are a total rip off at over £42 per night for a small pitch just with electricity.

The wardens are also in great need of some customer service training I have never come across such a miserable officious bunch as this lot I donít think I saw any of them smile the whole time we were there.

We have a dog (greyhound) and understand that they have to be walked off site but on 3 separate occasions we were reminded of that fact as we were walking the dog to the entrance. I really donít see how else we were supposed to get her there - carry her maybe.

The wardens also ride around the site on their bikes so you are left with the feeling that youíre being spied on so they can tell you off for any minor infringement of the rules.

As stated the pitches are small with no privacy whatsoever where we were they was a row of caravans about six feet behind us so those people were constantly staring in through our kitchen window which was most disconcerting.

The only positive about the site is itís location but there are far to many negatives for us so we wonít be going back and certainly donít recommend.

 First time here, and will certainly be back. We have previously used another site in Gloucester as our half way stop to the South West from our home in North Wales, but would probably stop here instead.

Many people seem to use it for one nighters, in fact we had three different neighbours each side during our 3 night stay.

Site is really well tended and cared for by wardens and facilities are modern and always clean. Lots of choice in terms of pitches but would recommend a pitch at the top of the site, furthest away from park and cricket ground as can be noisy at weekends.

Plenty of places to eat and drink (would suggest the Nottingham Arms or the Berkley Arms for the olde pub vibes) in Tewkesbury town, would need a week or two to try them all as there is so many.

Took a bike ride to Upton on Severn, as listed in the site info room, and found it to be a lovely small town with a few cafes ( we enjoyed No8), and we also took a walk to the Fleet Inn along the bank of the Avon, which is in a lovely setting, or you could get a ferry there from Tewkesbury Marina if you didn't fancy a walk.

 Another one night stopover on our way South this time.

Everything the same as usual. Good site, friendly wardens, clean and tidy.

We went to Choral Evensong at the Abbey and it was lovely to hear the choir.

 Another one night stopover at Tewkesbury Abbey CMC Site. No change from our reviews last year, still a perfect site for a stopover, so conveniently located for the motorway and close to town.

This year we found a lovely riverside walk to pass the evening.

The facilities are of a high standard and very clean and the pitches are perfectly acceptable although this year, we had just been at a really spacious site before stopping at Tewkesbury so the way the pitches are all crammed in at Tewkesbury was more obvious to us.

No problem with returning here time after time for a stopover on our way from north to south and back.

 Another great one night stay at Tewkesbury Abbey CMC site on our way home from our longer holiday down south. The potholes on the exit road mentioned in my previous review have now been repaired and the site is back to its usual high standard.

We had a fully serviced pitch this time which was nice as having the water on tap made the big end of holiday cleanup of the caravan all the easier.

We find this site so convenient for a stopover as itís only a mile or so from the M5.

The wardens are friendly and helpful, the site is spacious and you can walk into the town in about five minutes which is great for having a drink or easy dinner on the last night of a holiday.

 We regularly use Tewkesbury Abbey as a stopover on our way home from the South of England due to its close proximity to the motorway network.

This time we just stayed for one night on a multisurface pitch which was ideal. The site is spacious, clean, and close to the centre of Tewkesbury where there are lots of Cafes and takeaways etc to get something to eat.

On this visit, there were some works happening on the site which made exiting with the caravan quite difficult due to the positioning of cones and huge potholes, but hopefully this will only be a temporary situation and will be quickly resolved.

Check-in was quick and easy, and the wardens friendly and helpful.
