 We loved this site. Friendly greeting on arrival with everything explained clearly and simply.

We stayed on a huge grass pitch with electricity. The toilets and showers were clean and working as they should. Pleased that the shower wasn't time limited (no push button). You can borrow a fire pit for free and buy wood and kindling from the campsite.

Lovely cafe attached to the site, great for lunch or cooked breakfast.

There were dog walks easily accessed on the site, round the fishing lakes. The Cotswold Way is a couple of minutes walk from the site. We walked on it up to the top of the valley and were rewarded with stunning views (about 45 mins walk).

Also went to Cromwell's Seat (take a diversion from the main path) for other great views. Hayles Abbey Halt on the GWR Steam Railway is a 20 minute walk on quiet roads.

If you time it right, you can see steam and heritage diesels pass through. It's a request stop on the line so best to check the timetable to make sure the train will actually stop.

Hailes Abbey (10 minute walk) is an English Heritage run site which is owned by the National Trust, so you don't pay if a member of either. Also worth looking inside Hailes Parish Church opposite the Abbey if you like historic buildings.

Recommend the Pheasant Pub and The Plough at Ford. Enjoyed the Fox dining by the river at Great Barrington (our dog had a nice swim by the road bridge there).

Slightly further afield, looked at Odda's Chapel, close to the Severn. Stow on the Wold is delightful, particularly Huffkins Cafe (recommend parking at Tesco car park and walk 10 mins to the town centre).

Tried some of the well known tourist spots like Bourton on the Water, but they were very busy.

Only thing to be aware of is the shooting club (Saturday only) next to the campsite. It didn't bother us at all and overall a wonderful place.

 Liked the country location away from busy roads, has great walks either around the farm trails or wider area as the Cotswold way runs alongside the site.

The shop sells most thing you are likely to need food and drink wise and sells fresh fruit from the farm or jams made from them, the cafe does a great full english breakfast or homemade cakes & coffees.

The large camping area is great for children to play games and run around and explore without causing nuisance to couples who want peace.

The toilet facilities were clean and well kept.

It has a fishing lake but it is sadly neglected and overgrown and the 3 landing stages are not suitable for older people or easy to access.

 Perfect weather always helps. Basic toilets/washing-up facilities. Plenty of hot water. Many water points. Options of hard standing and/or EHU. Useful Farm Shop/Tea etc area.

Welcome and staff superb. Perfect for long/overnight stays. Great for kids and dogs. Walk to Winchcombe across fields about 1 hour gently to take in views - weather depending for muddy paths.

Abbey & church a must. Can be noisy at times, the clue is in Farm!

Play wavy Railway Children at local railway GWR Halt. (Please keep underwear on!)

A 20 minute hack up the boring canopy over-covered path to North Farmcote reveals stunning views of the valley. Discover St Faith chapel close by.

A perfect stay. Certainly to return.

 Took 2 Silver Duke of Edinburgh groups camping at Hailes for 2 nights.

Absolutely perfect camping site for the groups.

Everything to hand without them needing to use the pupil campsite area.

 Lovely, spacious site. Good facilities and generally quiet (there were a group of teenagers there with a school who were rather noisy, but they were made to be quiet after 10. 00. )

Only stayed one night, but the site had a lovely feel and I would stay there again.

The main negative point is that it is right next to Hailes shooting ground. Not sure what it's like on other days, but on the Saturday it was none stop shots reverberating around the entire area.

Not particularly relaxing and not good if you have a nervous dog.

Reviewer: Blisters 6 reviews from this member

 A lovely quiet site (no loud music or radios when we were there) with plenty of space for both campervans, caravans and tents. The facilities were much better that expected with spotless separate toilets and shower facilities and lots of hot water. Could do with some instructions on how to lock the doors properly in the main ones, however. But some lazy people didn’t bother to shut the doors behind them afterwards, leaving the interiors open to the elements. Why?

There is a farm shop and café at the top end of the site - open 9. 00 - 5. 30, or 7. 00 p. M. On Tuesdays and Fridays for fish and chips. The nearest pubs and cafés are in Winchcombe, which has plenty of choice but is 2½ miles away down footpaths. Too dark to walk back so a vehicle or a taxi is essential.

The site is right on the Cotswold Way and ideal for hikers. We did a couple of sections which, in the late summer sunshine, were stunningly beautiful – who needs abroad! However, the next evening the weather turned and we felt extremely sorry for the couple doing the entire route. They arrived carrying all their gear including a very small two-man tent, which they valiantly erected in the pouring rain. So British!

 A lovely site in a rural setting, there was plenty of space for children to play. You are allowed to site your caravan anyway you like on the hard standing. The Cotswold way walk was on the doorstep and we had a pleasant walk to Winchcombe.

The shower and toilet block was near the entrance and was kept very clean with plenty of hot water for the showers.

The Cafe and Farm shop was a short walk away. We had the fish and chips on the Tuesday evening which were excellent. Made even more so as they were half price on the Eat out to Help out deal!

The Wardens were very welcoming and friendly. We had a problem with the jockey wheel when leaving and nothing was too much trouble to help us fix it.

We will certainly visit this site again

 A large site with plenty of open area for ball games. There are hard standing pitches with EHU and some tent pitches with EHU. The toilet/shower block is near the entrance and was kept very clean with excellent showers and plenty of hot water. There are separate facilities for the tent field.

There is a farm shop and cafe on site which, is easily accessed from the field instead of having to walk up the road. The cafe food was very good and they do a very ‘full’ English Breakfast.

The washing up facility is adjacent to the tented facilities and with just two sinks proved very congested at times, especially with CV19 restrictions. It is also a bit of a trek across the field, this was the only criticism we could make.

The area is rich in scenic villages, Sudeley castle and a GWR heritage railway line.

We would recommend staying here and we will return.

Reviewer: Angela Sturch 1 review from this member

 Lovely little site with a farm shop and cafe, fruit picking and nature walk.

We stayed for a few nights just after the covid-19 lockdown had been relaxed with a 5 year old and a 1 year old. Our pitch was lovely, really quiet with beautiful views and plenty of space for the kids to play.

The toilets were spotless, and kept that way by the warden who was seemingly continuously cleaning throughout the day. The warden was very friendly and helpful.

We also loved the farm dog Bernard who came to say hello every day!

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
