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.)

    The pitch was fine. The toilet/shower block was absolutely spotless and very serviceable. Jane the site manager couldn't have been more welcoming and she helped us with her local knowledge of walks etc that were available.

    The Hoggies pub and restaurant is right next door and offered good service and nice food.

    Disliked: 

    The noise from the motorway was very much an issue for us, a pair of ear plugs are a must when trying to sleep of a night time.

    There are also no local bus stops, and the only convenience store was around a mile away at the service station on the motorway, this worked out very costly. A small site shop would have been very useful.

Many thanks for your review.

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.
