General

  • Small, friendly campsite on a family-run Gloucestershire farm
  • A 15-minute drive to Gloucester; 20 minutes to Cheltenham
  • Established site since 1946; easy access from the M5

There’s been a campsite at Gables Farm Touring and Camping since way back in 1946… and with a history like that, you can be sure the team here have learnt a thing or two along the way about what makes a good place to stay.

The essence of this small, family-run Gloucestershire site is to keep things simple but well done. Bathroom facilities are bright, clean and spacious, with toilets and showers, and there’s also a washing-up area and chemical disposal point for guests to use. And because no good day ever started without a decent breakfast, you can also pick up fresh free-range eggs on site too.

Of course, it helps that this is a rather fine location too: in the Severn Vale about 15 minutes’ drive from the centre of Gloucester, and close to the western edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The site is just off the A38 and with easy access from the M5 (both northbound and southbound), so getting out and about should be straightforward.

Eats and drinks should be in good supply around here, too – if you don’t fancy the trip to Gloucester there are pubs in Whitminster (two minutes’ drive) and Frampton on Severn (10 minutes), or you could venture to the lovely town of Stroud (15 minutes).

Great Site!16/10/2021

    We stayed at the Gables just one night on our return from Cornwall. Nicest, cleanest site we've ever stayed at. Rodger was very accommodating and met us at the site to let us in, and when we departed. Very quiet, being at the end of the season, but the facilities are pristine. Would definitely stay here again!

    Sam, the owner of the site, couldn't have been more helpful and kept checking on us to see that we were happy and had everything we needed. She must have an amazing memory as she remembered what we said we were doing during the day and she asked us how we had enjoyed it afterwards.

    The toilet and show block was lovely - fresh, clean, new - couldn't fault it.

    Everything. The toilets and showers were immaculate. On a main road so no long, narrow lanes to squeeze the campervan through, but the road wasn’t too loud so wouldn’t wake you up in the night. There was a bus stop a short walk up the road so very convenient for getting into Gloucester. The owners were really helpful and always around if you needed anything.

    First stay at The Gables. Trying out our new camper. Couldn't fault anything, brilliant helpful Warden (Zac), excellent wide pitches and spotless new showerblocks and facilities. Close to Gloucester and other shopping. (really good camping store up the road, Attwools- I bought an awning there!)
    Highly recommended and will definitely return.
