 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.

 Immaculate site staffed by friendly and helpful wardens. Bit pricy at £39 pn but it was Easter.

Town a bit decrepit but still with charm.

The boats weren't running until early May.

 Nice medium sized site v close to Tewkesbury town centre. Town lovely but a little tired and buay. Gorgeous buildings and lovely rivers of Severn and Avon.

Good walks esp. Along rivers, out along Severn to Coalhouse In at Apperley - rough and ready but welcoming and looks good inside for meals when back fully open. ALso Deerhurst with lovely church and Odda's Chapel.

Cycle around lanes via Forthampton, Tirley, Twigworth, Hathgerley Down, Staverton, Boddington (lunch in churchyard), Tredington and cycleways through Newtown. Walk via Abbey grounds along Avon out to Marina and back. Lunch at Carousel Cafe.

The best curry we remember ever having, at the Mezbaan Tandoori opposite site and Abbey.

 Excellent town centre site, typical CAMH site, very well organised, clean and with very friendly wardens.

Very clean facilities and security gated at night.

Very easy walk into town, which has a nice wee shops, cafes and pubs.

The site even had a Calorlite gas bottle in stock, so I managed to exchange my spare at last!

 We stayed here for 4 nights over the Bank Holiday. The site was very maintained with beautiful flowers around reception.

Arrival and booking in were very straightforward, we were met at the barrier by a warden who was welcoming and helpful.

Our grass pitch was large and in a very good position.

The facilities and toilet block building were very modern, clean and although the site is large were never full which in the current Covid times was very reassuring.

The site is well placed to the rear of the Abbey and close to town. There are several pubs and places to eat in town.

Had a Sunday lunch at the Tudor House Hotel which was good value and good. There are regular buses to Gloucester and Cheltenham which is useful if you are in a motorhome.

Nice walk along the river as well.

All in all a great few days.

 Lovely site located in Tewkesbury and easily accessed from the town. Very close to the town centre with many pubs, cafe’s and restaurants to chose from. Reception had the most stunning floral display which is a theme throughout the town.

The site has a mixture of grass pitches, all weather block paved pitched and gravel fully serviced pitches. The electricity bollards are roughly six feet off the ground this is due to flooding risk in Tewkesbury.

There is an excellent new facilities block on the site which was fully open now that Covid restrictions have been lifted. No more of the stupid band system which never worked because so many people ignored it.

Tewkesbury itself is a very nice town, there were floral displays everywhere you went and pennants being displayed in relation to the battle which took place here in 1471 during the war of the roses.

Walks along the river are easy to do and of course there is the Abbey right next to the site. The bells did not bother us so perhaps they have toned them down as they are recorded ones.

All in all we liked this site and the town of Tewkesbury and will return in the future so would have no problem in recommending it.

 Large modern CAMC site located very close to great town centre which initially looked run down but interesting history.

Superb facilities block.

Mixture of pitch types all large and fairly level.

Mostly tarmac roads and lots of greenery with excellent layout.

Quiet for cc site.

Tv, WiFi and mobile all good.

Wardens pleasant, unobtrusive and helpful.

Side designed to cope with flooding.

 Another great one night stopover at Tewkesbury Abbey Club Site. This site is so well positioned for stopovers as it is only a few minutes drive from the M5.

This time we were on a multi surface pitch which was a block paving pitch. You pitch the caravan with the door side right up against the edge of the pitch and park the car to the left of the caravan, also on the block paving area.

Depending on the weather and site regulations, you may be allowed to put up an awning on the grass beside the caravan.

When we were here last month, it was before the second phase of lockdown easing so the showers were not open.

This time, however, the showers were open and as a result, the queues for the toilet block were ridiculous. I went to use the toilet at 7. 15am and when I got there, all 4 bands for the ladies block were in use and there were 4 other ladies queuing, all carrying shower gear. I only wanted to use the toilet but it was going to take ages to get a band and be able to get inside. The Caravan Club really need to consider having separate bands for those who just want to use the toilet.

 Lovely peaceful site, grass pitch well kept, good facilities, lovely dog walk to large playing fields.

Convenient for the Abbey, town and surrounding areas.

Would recommend this site.

Reviewer: Pixie_Hez 86 reviews from this member

 We use the CMC site at Tewkesbury quite regularly as a stop over on our way north and south as it is very conveniently situated for the M5 however, we usually arrive in the afternoon and leave first thing the next morning so see little of the area. This time we decided to stay for 2 nights on our way south to see what there is to see!

Check in was well organised for COVID with the warden coming to your car as you arrive and giving you all the details you need before allowing you to go and choose a pitch. Once pitched up you return to reception to pay and hand in your test and trace form.

The site itself is great with a mix of grass pitches, all weather block paved pitched and gravel fully serviced pitches. We were on a fully serviced pitch and it was very handy to have the water connection but we were unable to use the waste drain as it was in the far corner of the pitch and as you have to pitch with the car on the left and the caravan in the middle with space for the awning on the right, the drain was too far away for our usual drain pipe to reach. If you are booking a serviced pitch, you will definitely need a long flexible waste hose.

The toilet block had 3 male and 3 female toilets open and was using a band system to ensure that only 3 people at a time were inside the block. Everyone seemed to be considerate to each other and social distancing was not a problem.

We love walking and found a lovely circular walk from the site down to the river and then along the river to the village of Deerhurst. It is 2. 5 miles each way if you come and go by the same route but if you return via a slightly longer inland route, the circular walk is about 6 miles in total. Deerhurst has a really interesting very old church which was welcome shelter when the rain came!

Our OS map showed a number of similar walks in the area so we are definitely going to stay 2 nights in future and explore more of the area rather than just using the site as a quick overnight.
