Tudor Caravan Park

Tudor Caravan Park is a beautiful, quiet, four star holiday park in the Cotswolds, close to the banks of the River Severn in the heart of Gloucestershire. The park is open all year, welcoming touring caravans, motorhomes, RVs and tents. Hard standing pitches are available, along with serviced and non-serviced pitches.

Facilities available for guests to take advantage of during their stay include toilet and shower blocks, a laundrette, and a washing up area. Calor Gas and Camping Gaz exchange is also available for guests that need it, while chemical waste disposal facilities are also at hand. A motorhome service point can be used during a stay or before heading home, and guests can access the park’s Wi-Fi internet at a small additional charge.

There are several different camping and caravanning areas available at Tudor Caravan Park, and plenty of open space is provided for families to enjoy ball games and other outdoor activities.

The park acts as a wonderful gateway to Cotswolds, the banks of the Severn as well as the surrounding area. Fishing is available close to the park along the canal towpath, which runs along the side of the Gloucester-Sharpness canal that runs into the Severn, while these walkways and trails are perfect for walking or cycling.

Paddle boats, tall ships, and small steamers can often be spotted on the canal, making the area a great place for taking photographs.
The park sits behind the Tudor Arms Public House, which is open throughout the day for guests to enjoy amazing food and drink. The pub is regularly voted as one of the best in Gloucestershire, and welcomes families as well as individuals and couples.

There is a wonderful range of attractions to be enjoyed in the local area. The famous Slimbridge Wetlands Centre is only 800 yards away, and is considered one of the most important conservation areas in the whole of the United Kingdom. The wetlands centre is home to flamingos as well as huge numbers of beautiful swans and migrating geese.

The National Arboretum is found nearby in Westonbirt, and is a great place for families to spend the day. This attractions brings in visitors as well as scientists from all around the world, and is considered one of the most important tree and shrub collections in the international community. The Arboretum has more than 17 miles of footpaths for scenic walks and discovering the amazing plant life that populates this location.

Outdoor lovers will find the Cotswolds on the doorstep, which offer great walks, cycling, and some incredible views of the surrounding area.

Tourists who prefer spending their time in towns and cities will find plenty that appeals to them, with Berkeley and Gloucester both a short drive away. Berkeley is famous for its castle and its history, while Gloucester is a city with something for everyone, with its Roman past still obvious despite it having moved on massively since it was founded nearly 2,000 years ago.

Tudor Caravan Park is a great place for a family break, particularly for those looking for great outdoor exploration opportunities and the chance to visit some quirky villages, towns, and cities.

Tudor Caravan Park is a Visit England 4 Star and AA 4 Pennant Graded Park. It won 'Cotswolds Caravan or Camping Site of the Year 2014 - Gold'. So it's perfect if you enjoy quiet tent, motorhome, RV or caravan holidays in the Cotswolds.

A beautiful site and area, well maintained with professional & helpful reception, Mostly hard standing + EHU. Gates locked at 22:30 until 07:00 meaning you have to leave your car in the Pub car park overnight when late back. Lovely toilet block cleaned every day. A little pricey (£17.50pn) but this is the Cotswold's and worth the price. Lots to see in area. Pub: excellent range of beers & compared to London, v.cheap!Food OK. Fish & Chip van (£5 cod & chips) Saturdays a plus. Definately a firm favourite and will be returning. 5* web site.

This was our second visit although our first was just one night so I didn't review but obviously liked it enough to go back. The site itself is easy to find and is kept very clean and tidy. There are plenty of caravan and camp spaces and a large grassy area that children can play on although there are no facilities for them. The newer shower block was clean each time we saw it with plenty of free hot water, but it was closed for 1 1/2 hours a day approx for cleaning - the older block available at this time was very basic and dated, I wouldn't have wanted to shower in it. The Tudor Arms pub just off site had reasonable pub food although a little expensive but a warm friendly welcome and again very clean and tidy (I'd recommend booking as it got very busy). The site also had a fish and chip van visited on the Saturday night we were there but we didn't use it, plenty of people did though there was a massive queue. The shop about 100 yards off site is VERY small and VERY expensive so is for real emergencies only. Lovely walks by the canal and Slimbridge Wetlands Centre is 2 minutes away and a great day out. Only niggle was that dogs should be kept on leads and not everyone follows this - I don't like dogs so it was irritating but that's down to owners being rude and ignorant, not the site. All in all would visit again and would be happy to recommend.

We really liked this site. The toilet/shower block was a bit dated, but always very clean and on this weekend rarely had anyone else in it, although most of the hardstanding pitches were full. The location is really nice, right next to the canal and the Tudor Arms Inn, where we ate (not cheap for pub food, but very nice). The site had a relaxed feel to it and although we didn't visit Slimbridge this time (only five mins away), we will go back and visit there. The whole area is interesting. Would recommend as a rural site, but with something to do!

Nice little caravan site, well kept clean & tidy pitches. Shower blocks clean on most visits. Lovely canal walk, Boat cafe nice too. No "Shops" as webb site states just a very small shop with very limited goods on our visit on a Saturday mid morning we were unable to get milk or bread & only one newspaper left! could'nt really call it a shop. Tudor Pub expensive for food & drink not good value & small portions,only used once. Would not rush to use the site again.

We stopped here for four nights on our way back home very easy to find and lots of places to explore nearby. This site has lots of potential as they are building a new toilet/shower block on the field area, but sadly at the moment the present block cannot cope if the site is busy.We booked on the adult only bit but everyone on the lower field had to walk through a little gap in the hedge and past our van, during the morning and evening busy period it was like being in Oxford street with the amount of people coming past and when you use the present block i must say it stunk a couple of gallon of disinfectant would do them both the world of good if you know what i mean. But on saying that the new block looks very impressive and if it was me i think i would give the builders a bung to hurry the job along as there was very little action going on in the four days we were there. There is a pub that does food at the entrance to the site which we didn't use as there is a cafe/bar right next to the canal (another 20 yards) which we used as you can sit outside and watch the boats go by. We will go back to this site when the new block is built as i found this site is not only good for stopping on the way up/down the M5 but you good easily spend a very relaxing week here. Sadly at the moment i could not give more than three stars here, as joining a que to have a shower or going to the toilet has never been the top of my list of things to do then holding you nose was even worse, i am sure everyone will say five stars when the work is finished, i can only comment on the present which is a shame Tudor Caravan Park, Slimbridge, Gloucestershire

We stayed at this site on our way up north. The site was very easy to find, just a short drive from the M5. The pitches were immaculately kept, very tidy. We'd had a busy week in Torquay and wanted a quiet site with room for our 4 children to play. Thats just what we got. All caravans and tents were sited around a large grassed area. Lots of families with youngsters. Our children soon found friends (perfect). There was also another enormous field were the children could play if they wished. There was a pub at the entrance of the site who welcomed children. We enjoyed sitting in the small room at the back where the children could play pool and we could relax with a drink. There is a small shop across the road on the cannal bank with very limited stock. There was a Tesco about 3 miles away. If you are looking for a peaceful site where the kids can have lots of freedom to play ball, fly kites, ride bikes etc then this site is perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Our only little gripe is that the toilets and showers could have been a little cleaner and nearer. The owners have got permission to build another toilet block with more showers and other facilities. Great site, would definately recommend it and we will visit again. Tudor Caravan Park, Gloucestershire.

Lovely level park, next to canal. Clean & very tidy. Toilets/showers clean, pub at entrance - excellent food. shop just over the otherside of the lane. We only stayed 1 night on our way up north (15 mins drive from M5), but would return and stay longer. Visited during 2008 again - & managed to stay 3 nights - they now have planning permission for a new toilet/shower block Tudor Caravan Park, Slimbridge, Gloucestershire
