General

  • Well-maintained and peaceful park set alongside the River Cam
  • Many country walks nearby
  • Pub and beer garden

Hurrah, another Pitchup.com pub campsite! And what a nicely named – and nicely placed – one too.

Picture this, pub campsite peeps: Riverside Caravan Park at The George, a peaceful, popular and very friendly park set along the wildlife haven of Gloucestershire's River Cam, with its own old-style family inn serving up home-cooked local nosh and traditional ales and ciders at decent prices (it should also certainly be mentioned that The George has its own steakhouse section and regular steak nights).

The park – and pub – is an easy ten minutes from the M5, making it a peachy place to use as a base for exploring Gloucestershire or as a stopover on the way to or from Cornwall and the southwest, and close to countryside walks passing along the river to snap otters, kingfishers, swans and other wildfowl on the smartphone.

There's easy access to the A38 to get to other Gloucestershire highlights, like 16 miles of coarse fishing on the Gloucester to Sharpness Canal within three miles and the Forest of Dean eight miles away. And it should certainly also be mentioned that The George has a large beer garden, with plenty of benches for riverside relaxing and looking for those otters and swans...

The amenities are roomy and well-maintained and include a family-friendly shower block with easy access, a loo and shower accessible to disabled guests, washing-up facilities in the main shower block, a washing machine and a children's playground.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

There is open, unfenced water on site.

Please bear in mind when booking that there is a height restriction barrier in place of 1.9 metres: this is for security purposes. Cars are issued with key cards to allow access on and off the site.

    The friendly staff on the site made you feel very welcome, the hospitality was fantastic. We enjoyed the walk through the woods and the picnic tables in there. We also enjoyed talking to the other friendly campers. The security on the gate are brilliant, they make you feel welcome and happy to help you in any way if you need it. The kids loved the park and woods. We would defiantly stay here again. A small and secure site with a Pub on site. One to remember if we are passing by.
    Free wifi in the pub and a decent signal onsite with 3.

    Disliked: 

    The pub food was not great, but the staff are friendly and welcoming.
    The toilets/showers need a bit more attention to detail when cleaning and the showers are far to hot.

    A clean, well kept site in a beautiful location. Staff friendly and helpful. Excellent pitches with hedges that allowed privacy, shelter and limited noise. Lovely riverside walk. Good pub close at hand, with well managed Guinness! Dog friendly and allowed fire pits.

    Disliked: 

    Close to main road so constant low level background traffic noise.

Excellent site with clean facilities, friendly staff and level pitches 13/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Nice small site, with not far to go for toilets, showers, etc. Friendly welcome and care during our stay. Good having the pub for meals, especially as the weather was not too good for our stay. Reasonably quiet too - helped by the hedges between pitches. Able to have a camp fire - the only thing our grandchildren asked for! Despite being near the river there was a distinct lack of midges. Good sandy soil drained well despite the rain.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike about the site.

Local attractions

Use Riverside Caravan Park at The George as a base to get to the best of Gloucestershire and its surrounds, whether you want to stick close to the countryside or have city days in the likes of Bristol, Cheltenham and Bath. (We bet you'd like a day at Cheltenham Racecourse 20 miles away too.)

Within strolling distance, walk the dogs and/or the kids at the little Rosie's Wood, taking the footpath along the river from the park and over the bridge. Two miles away, the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust's Slimbridge reserve gives juicy chances to see resident ducks, swans and thousands of migratory birds alongside stacks of events like otter feeds, guided walks and canoe safaris.

If it's more nature, greenery and gardens you're after, several excellent options as well as the Forest of Dean are an easy drive away: the 22-acre village green at Frampton on Severn, said to be the longest in England, within a five-mile drive; scenic strolls along the River Severn, within four miles; the National Trust's Westbury Court Gardens, seven miles away, and Stroud's hidden valley Painswick Rococo garden eight miles away (be sure and see the snowdrops if you're there in season).

Great golf in scenic surroundings can be had at Stinchcombe Hill Golf Club, on the southern edge of the Cotswold Escarpment above the Severn Valley and three miles from The George, but if your small cowboys and cowgirls don't fancy that, hustle them to the play areas and farm animals at Cattle Country Adventure Park four and a half miles away.

Also recommended by the Riverside Caravan Park at The George team are Gloucester Docks and the National Waterways Museum ten miles away; Woodchester Mansion, an odd and unfinished country house surrounded by National Trust parkland (four and half miles), and eleventh century Berkeley Castle (five miles), traditionally thought to be the place where poor old Edward Two saw his last day.

Must see

  • WWT Slimbridge Wetlands Centre (1.8 miles)
  • Berkeley Castle (5.0 miles)
  • Painswick Rococo Garden (8.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Woodchester Park (4.0 miles)
  • Westbury Court Garden (6.5 miles)
