General

  • Green and spacious park in Gloucestershire
  • On-site restaurant famous for its excellent food
  • Seven miles to Sharpness Canal and Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust

Greenery and space are on the menu at The Pepper Pot near Dursley in Gloucestershire, which is kept tiptop by its on-site and friendly wardens, who live in and are to hand for any advice or help needed by Pepper Potters during their stay.

Facilities are well-maintained and in a purpose-built shower and loo block; an indoor washing-up area and a coin-operated washing machine are also on site.

But the best part of The Pepper Pot? Its on-site bar and bistro, Hoggies, with decently priced home-cooked meals using the best of local ingredients from local suppliers, such as salads, burgers and quality matured steaks. (If you think your little mover and shaker won't fancy a steak, they have plenty to pick from on the children's menu.)

    Stayed here this week and must say we had a lovely time. We were greeted at the gate by the warden who was lovely and very accommodating. Couldn’t do enough to help and was very approachable. She even came over after our day out, having remembered our daughters name, and checked how our day had been and humoured our daughter about her day out. Our pitch was great and despite other reviews mentioning the m5 road noise, I must say we only heard a very dull buzz in the distance which didn’t bother us at all. The facilities were spotless. The showers and toilets were pristine! We had a lovely two nights here and will definitely use the site again if in the area.

    We used the site whilst travelling down to Devon & Cornwall for a holiday and also on the return journey back home, i picked the site as it was an equal distance between home and our holiday destination. Situated just off the M5 motorway it was relatively easy to find and access.
    The site was well maintained and very clean and the warden was very friendly and helpful, in fact i received a call from the warden on both journeys to check our arrival time and to confirm that there were no issues.
    There is a local pub (Hoggies) adjacent to the site serving homemade food which was very good.
    The shower/toilet block was very clean.
    I found it an ideal location to use as a stop over whilst travelling some distance to Devon & Cornwall.

    Disliked: 

    No dislikes as such, there is poor TV reception in the area so if your ideal evening includes watching the TV in the caravan then it may be worth considering other options or areas.
    Slight noise from the nearby M5 motorway but not enough to spoil the visit.

    Friendly welcome, relaxed atmosphere, Hoggies Bistro next door, nice big pitches, good toilets and showers, although unlikely to be enough if site was full.

    We had a lovely welcome from Jane and Rocky, both were very patient with our overly enthusiastic three year old! We were shown to our good sized pitch, and the onsite toilet & washing facilities were clean and fresh. It’s a lovely small site and we enjoyed our stay.

    Disliked: 

    Noise from the motorway, hadn’t realised quite how close it was! Entirely my fault though and no reflection on the vampire itself.

Local attractions

The Pepper Pot Caravan Park is in a decent spot to use as a base for exploring Gloucestershire and its surrounds, particularly for those who like their wildlife or historic homes. Plenty of other activities and attractions can be found within ten miles.

Two golf clubs are within a quick drive, the Stinchcombe Hill Golf Club two and a half miles away and the Cotswold Edge Golf Club within five. Also within a short drive are Berkeley Castle and the Vale of Berkeley (two and a half miles) and the Cattle Country Adventure Park (two miles) for yee-haw adventuring.

Wildlife types have the River Severn Estuary and the Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust to explore within six and seven miles respectively, with more species to see at Oldown Country Park eight miles away; wildfowl and other critters along the nearby Gloucester to Sharpness Canal, and Dean Forest and the Wye Valley 11 miles from base.

More into historic homes, local history or greenery? Take your Pepper Pot pick from the National Trust's Woodchester Mansion and park or Westbury Court Gardens (seven and 11 miles); Chavenage House and the National Arboretum at Westonbirt (both ten miles), or the National Waterways Museum at Gloucester Docks 16 miles away.

The Pepper Pot team also recommends a punt at Chepstow Racecourse, 11 miles away; a look at the longest village green in England at Frampton On Severn nine and a half miles away, or a dip at Dursley Pool and Sports Centre within five and a half miles. For day trips, sink into some shopping and sightseeing at Bristol or spa city Bath.
