Dawleys Caravan Park is a picturesque and quiet holiday park, found in rural surroundings a short distance from the pretty town of Tewkesbury. This campsite is family and dog friendly, and offers outstanding views across the surrounding Gloucestershire countryside, the Severn Valley and out towards the Malvern Hills.
Dawleys Caravan Park welcomes guests with tents and touring caravans, while the facilities available on-site include showers and a laundrette.
If you're staying here, you can stock up on your supplies in the nearby village of Twyning, where the post office sells a selection of groceries as well as camping gas.
This caravan park is favoured by guests looking for somewhere to relax and unwind on their camping and caravan holidays in Gloucestershire, while still having a range of activities within easy reach. Dawleys Caravan Park sits within a vast network of footpaths, while also offering access to the open countryside. There are also lots of waterways where you can enjoy coarse fishing and fly fishing. The rivers Severn and Avon are both within a short distance of the park, while guests often report the smaller pools and water systems of the area are equally as exciting.
Dawleys is also popular with golfers, and there are two golf courses nearby, as well as a driving range. Other activities ideally suited to families staying at this park include horse riding, which is available close by, and river cruises, which operate on the Avon throughout the summer months. Self-drive boats are also available for hire, and they're a special way to see Tewkesbury.
Tewkesbury itself is a wonderful place to visit. Just two miles from this park, this town has an eclectic mix of old and new shops, while the open air market is one of its most famous features, and is held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The beautiful 12th century church and wooden framed architecture of the town also attract many visitors, especially photographers, while Tewkesbury is a quaint place to spend a day exploring.
A short distance to the north of this campsite, you'll find the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A stunning and varied landscape with dramatic hills and spring water, this AONB sits across Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire and has 15 Sites of Special Scientific Interest. It's a perfect area for exploring on foot, with many paths to choose from, and there are lots of cycle routes, too.
If you've pitched at Dawleys you're also within reach of the Forest of Dean and, on the Welsh border, the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, both of which make fun days out.
The city of Worcester is about a 20-minute drive from Dawleys Caravan Park. Visit the impressive cathedral, the Elgar Birthplace Museum and the Museum of Royal Worcester. Cheltenham is about half an hour away down the M5. Enjoy a day at the races, go to the annual Cheltenham Literature Festival, ride the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway and take in the impressive town hall. And while in Worcester it's all about Elgar, down the road in Cheltenham another composer is remembered, Holst. Nearby Gloucester is also well worth some of your time and the striking cathedral is a popular attraction.
