Our Review

We spent an enjoyable few days staying at Winchcombe Camping and Caravanning Club campsite when visiting in the October half term in a motorhome.

Winchcombe campsite is not far from Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire and is set in a rural location within the Cotswolds.

The campsite boasts a fishing lake and plenty of flat pitches, both grass and hard standings with electric hook-up. (There’s also some self-catering lodges too).

As we found with many Camping and Caravanning Club sites, the facilities were in excellent condition and kept very clean.

The site also has a play park, as well as quieter roads that are perfect for kids to ride their bikes on. Plus, Winchcombe has a games room, complete with traditional skittles.

If you want to avoid having to cook, then you can visit some nearby pubs that serve food. We gave two of them a try.

You may hear the toot of a steam train. On the outskirts of Gretton, you’ll walk under a railway bridge of the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway. If you are lucky, an old steam train or diesel may pass over.

The Royal Oak has a play park and even has a couple of tennis courts too.

A good place to walk too, enjoy some lunch, or just sit and relax while the kids play in the park.

Autumn Chillaxing

Despite it being autumn, this was a nice place to sit out and enjoy the autumn sunshine while the kids played.

Walking to the Gardners Arms

A short walk across some fields (be prepared for mud!) is the Gardner’s Arms pub, which we visited one night, and had some great home-cooked food.

At the time of our visit, you would get a discount if you mentioned you were staying at the campsite.
