Elmwicke Campsite: Grass pitches

General

  • Award-winning Gloucestershire farm site with Malvern Hills views
  • A 10-minute drive to Tewkesbury; 20 minutes to Gloucester Cathedral
  • Tractor tours of the animals; on-site café and occasional restaurant

Fans of animal antics, step this way… stay at award-winning Elmwicke Campsite and you'll be on a working farm surrounded by a flock of Jacob sheep, a herd of rare-breed Gloucester cattle, and the Pygmy goats Mabel and Martha, plus Bacon the pig. As you can probably tell, this spot in the Severn Vale is a proper rural retreat, with fabulous views of the Malverns and Bredon Hill to boost your Gloucestershire break.

Site owners (and carers to all those animals) Jon and Ruth opened up the site in 2012; they're fourth-generation farmers and you’ll see them at some point during your stay, whether that’s welcoming you in, delivering wood, cleaning the facilities or having a good old natter.

The campsite is a seven-acre flat field where you can choose your own pitch, and camp together if you’re with friends or family. There’s plenty of space for games of cricket, rugby, football, rounders or flying kites, and the owners are more than happy to take guests on a tractor-trailer ride around the fields to visit the animals.

Alongside men’s and women’s loos, the amenities block also has showers and a family room with baby-changing facilities. To help you with keeping everybody clean and tidy, there’s also a laundry area with a washing machine.

An on-site café is open for breakfast rolls, pastries and fresh coffee to get you going in the morning, and on some nights you can eat at the pop-up restaurant that's run by a fab local caterer. If you’d rather be self-sufficient, barbecues are allowed on site, and you can order meat packs from the farm, as well as hiring firepits and buying bags of wood, which are delivered daily.

    I absolutely enjoyed my stay here. From the minute I arrived, the owners were super happy to help me with anything I needed. The toilets, showers, laundry room and all installations really were immaculately clean. The pitch area is so big it's very easy to find a spot distanced enough to respect people around you and enjoy your quiet. People in other tents can play some music and it still won't be bothering at all. Also, everybody I met from the family of owners was really lovely and caring. I wish them the best and I really recommend the stay here.

    Disliked: 

    This is not a complain but a heads up for anybody getting there by foot. The 20' walk from the bus stop to the camping is a bit lonely and it's pitch black at night. Make sure you can at least wear enough reflective clothing and you place yourself safely on the road at all times, since there are very low-visibility spots. If you have any concerns about your safety, contact the farm owners. They're lovely and they might be able to help.
