 Good site but a pity their shop only has camping gear as the nearest shop is a long walk away - there is room for more goods.

Excellent location for Slimbridge Wetland Centre - a ten minute walk.

Can't rate child friendliness as don't have children.

 This ssite is lovely, well laid out spacious hard standing pitches, the pub on site very good, lovely canal walks on your doorstep, Frampton-on-Severn well worth a walk to along the canal path, Slimbridge wetlands on the doorstep too.

The site is kept very clean and always felt safe even with the new covid rules, lovely toilet and shower block and laundry/washing up area. Friendly reception staff,

Only downside here, is that the buses only run and not frequently along the main road which is a good walk (and very few footpaths)away through Slimbridge village which also is lacking any shop/coffee house/pub, such a shame, come on Slimbridge, needs an entrepreneur, Frampton coffee shop is brilliant

 An excellent site in a lovely location right next to the Gloucester Sharpness canal and a 10 minute level walk from Slimbridge Wetlands Trust. (A must visit attraction. )

Covid restrictions meant some facilities were restricted but we felt very safe in communial areas.

The welcome in reception was warm and friendly, our pitch in The Orchard was level, clean and tidy, and the whole site particularly quiet at night.

Add to this a pub serving excellent food just outside the site entrance and you can see why we highly recommend Tudor Caravan Park.

 Booked this site because of proximity to Slimbridge WWT. A lovely site and we were welcomed by friendly staff.

The site was tidy and level, can’t comment on the facilities as we decided to just use our own but we had a lovely stay.

The pub next door had good Covid precautions and we had a lovely fish and chips there.

Good walks along the canal, watching the boats and a fantastic day out at the WWT.

We’d definitely return.

 Very good campsite with spotless facilities. Range of types of pitch. Very helpful staff. Situated behind a pub that serves excellent meals.

Adjacent to the canal providing excellent walking/cycling, and half a mile from the Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust. Good walks around the Severn estuary and attractive nearby villages for exploring

 A lovely site, easy access although there were lots of vehicles parked along the road very near to the entrance with no space for anyone to pull into.

Lovely walks/cycle rides along the canal and very close to Slimbridge.

If we had gone on first impressions though we wouldn't have been very impressed as the lady on reception wasn't very cheerful or helpful.

Having said that we will definitely go back again

 Great site, I have already booked again.

Well laid out next to the Gloucester and Sharpness canal and Slimbridge Wetland Centre.

Great real ale pub at entrance serving all day breakfast.

 We had arranged to meet relatives in Slough over the August bank holiday weekend, and had left it late to arrange anywhere to stay. So when we saw that Tudor Caravan Park still had availability, it seemed that our luck was in. An "award-winning" site, next to a beautiful-looking canal and adjacent the Tudor Arms pub, which had been awarded "Best country pub of the year" by CAMRA? Too good to be true, surely?

Sadly, yes. The reason why the site still had availability became apparent when we tried to book. They had a minimum 5-night stay policy, which was 2 nights more than work commitments would allow us to stay for. Now, a minimum 3-night stay over a bank holiday weekend I can understand, because if a site let someone book just two nights they probably wouldn't sell the third. But I'm sorry, a minimum 5 nights just felt like a rip-off.

And the hidden costs didn't end there. To select your pitch, rather than having it automatically allocated to you cost an extra £5. And the wifi was so expensive that it was cheaper to buy more internet data.

We ended up booking anyway, because we couldn't find anywhere else available locally and the idea of meeting our relatives over a different weekend was unthinkable to 'she who must be obeyed'. But the effect was to leave a bad taste in my mouth before we had even arrived, which is never a good thing.

Perhaps this left me too ready to be critical, but whilst there was little to fault during our stay, there wasn't a lot to be impressed by either. Take the check in process. There wasn't one, not really. We booked and paid online and on arrival, our pitching instructions were pinned to a notice board. Perhaps this is very astute as a means to avoid exposure to Covid-19, but a friendly greeting to a campsite can make the whole stay feel that bit more special.

And if the owners were that worried about Covid-19 they really should have paid more attention to the shower block. The least they could have done would have been to prop the doors permanently open to improve air flow, relocate the vending machine and perhaps, on one of the busiest weekends of the year, had some sort of token system to limit the numbers of people inside. But they hadn't done any of this. So after using the block once, and feeling that it was uncomfortably crowded, I resorted to using our own facilities for the rest of our stay. This wasn't a problem, other than it felt as though we were paying for facilities we weren't using.

Then there's the canal. Yes, it's next to the site but it's on an embankment several metres higher, so you don't get a view of it. If you have children, they'll be welcome on the site and able to play games on an open grassy area in the middle of the site. But there's no actual designated play area. And we had a meal at the Tudor Arms pub, which was perfectly pleasant. But the best in Gloucestershire? Not a chance.

On the plus side, the hardstanding pitches are in good condition and are very clean. We had a lovely time visiting our relatives and walking their dog on Selsey and Minchinhampton Commons, and visiting Berkeley castle. I enjoyed my morning run along the canal towpath, the Black Shed cafe does good breakfast sandwiches and home-made cakes and a visit to Slimbridge Wetland Reserve (only about 15 minutes walk from the site) is a day well spent. It's worth noting though that the site is more wildlife park than wetland reserve, with almost all of it consisting of good quality footpaths. That's great if you need accessibility for a wheelchair or pushchair. Less so if you've put stout walking shoes on and after 5 minutes, wish you'd worn sandals.

Judged purely on its location and facilities, this site is good. But we didn't think it was better than good. It met all of our expectations but surpassed none. Our main problem is that in order to leave a lasting good impression in the hospitality industry, the key thing is to make the customers think that they are more important than their money. This site really did the opposite.

 Very well kept site: nicely laid out, immaculately clean & tidy. Location is ideal for Slimbridge WWT - just a 10-15 minute walk down the lane. Also very convenient for the Tudor Arms pub and the Black Shed on the canal side for food and drinks. Nice for an evening walk along the towpath and the fisherman also seemed to appreciate the canal.

However it hasn’t got much else going for it. The most expensive campsite we’ve ever been to anywhere in Europe, the services and facilities were no more than average at best. Just a plain EHU without the usual (for this price) personal tap, grey water drain and TV connection. Although they’re mostly not our taste, for this price you’d expect much more facilities: play area/swimming pool/club house, etc. Other than Slimbridge WWT, there’s not a lot around and there are much more convenient sites (and cheaper!) for the Cotswolds and Gloucester.

I’d imagined we’d be situated on a canal side watching the boats but in fact the canal is 15 feet above the site so all you can see is an embankment. Consequently the site is fairly plain with no view other than across fields. For this kind of money we’ve previously had gorgeous views over the sea bays, lakes, rivers, etc. Not here.

So in summary this is a pleasant, quiet, very tidy, well-kept site but it is basic and not very conveniently located other than for the birds.

 Clean and tidy site. Quite. Nice walks along canal towpath. Great food and service in on site pub.

Only downside have pay for WiFi but can't get Internet.
