Alan Rogers Review
This attractive, peaceful campsite, the winner of a David Bellamy Conservation Award (2018/19) is adjacent to the Gloucester-Sharpness Canal. The site is located behind the Tudor Arms public house, and before the narrow swing bridge. At the rear of the pub car park, a gate clearly identifies the entrance and the recently developed reception is just inside on the right. There are many trees and hedges, particularly surrounding the site, so the canal is not visible. Attractively laid out on two separate fields, there are 75 pitches, all with 16A electricity hook-ups, and 50 with hardstanding. The old orchard is for extended stays or adults only units, with gravel hardstandings, and the more open grassy meadow for family touring units. There is also a rally field beyond the meadow.
The adjacent pub has a restaurant and bar (CAMRA award winner every year since 2009) The site was Cotswolds Caravan or Camping Site of the Year 2014 (Gold award.) Just across the road, beside the canal, is the Black Shed café and shop where boats and bicycles can be hired. This is a delightful, peaceful park with plenty to offer: walking, fishing and boating, not to mention ornithology as the Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre founded by Sir Peter Scott at Slimbridge is only 15 minutes walk away.
A high-quality shower block with underfloor heating provides large shower cubicles, private washing cubicles, baby changing room and facilities for disabled visitors. The other heated toilet building is located to one side of the orchard and provides all the usual facilities including pushbutton hot showers. Laundry. Gas available. Some site lighting but a torch would be useful. Gate locked 22.30-07.00. Superfast WiFi (charged). No charcoal barbecues.
From Junction 13 on the M5 turn west towards the A38. Turn south at the roundabout and then right at the next roundabout, signed WWT Wetlands Centre Slimbridge and Tudor Arms. Continue for 1.5 miles turning left into car park of the Tudor Arms. Site entrance is at rear of car park.Link to campsite location map on google
