General

  • Small family-run site on an organic cattle farm
  • Adjacent to the River Severn and close to the Severn Way
  • Community-owned village pub within walking distance

Set in a perry pear orchard on an organic cattle farm: that sounds almost poetic. As are the views from the spectacularly scenic little place of , set in the horseshoe bend of the River Severn on the edge of the peaceful Gloucestershire village of Arlingham, and adjacent to the river with easy access to the footpaths of the Severn Way.

A rather smashing pub is within easy walking distance too: the Red Lion freehouse (owned by the village, hurrah) with tiptop locally sourced food, real ale and regular events like quiz nights and folk nights – all just the ticket after a peaceful pedal or serene stroll along the river paths or region's quiet flat roads…?

West End Farm has a toilet block and chemical disposal. Both barbecues and campfires are allowed on site.

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Excellent value for family of 4 adults on lovely homely site. 18/08/2017

    Lovely small, homely campsite. Nice quiet location. Sheltered by trees, Recently added new toilet and shower block, all well maintained. Excellent value for family (4 adults). Slight occasional working farm smell at far end of campsite is unnoticeable after 5 seconds, and it is actually a lovely field to just sit and relax, with good atmosphere and fresh air. Definitely recommend.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing. Occasional slight working farm smell very quickly disappears as noted above.

Has potential but not quite there, very cheap but can understand why. 17/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    That you could have a fire, no charge for dog, location, local walks from site. Level, well maintained grass and hard standing. New shower block, not yet finished but will be great. Young owner pleasant but not interfering. Cheap price. Reasonable arrival and departure times.

    Disliked: 

    I appreciate it stated on a dairy farm, however, very close to milking barn and with that comes loud machinery noise for much of the morning and some of the evening. Also, unbearable amount of flies. I am a seasoned camper and happily accept outdoor living and all it brings, but you were unable to eat outside because of flies and even with fly screen in use, there were literally hundreds that made their way into the tent because of sheer volume. Also, because of dairy farm the water supply is non existent as the supply is used by the site and farm. While the farm uses the water there is no pressure, so you can not flush the toilets and it took 25 minutes to obtain under 1 litre of drinking water. The site owner, who told us this was new to him, is in need of a little guidance. He arrived at the site to do some maintenance, cut hedges, but the toilets were dirty with no toilet rolls and I think this should have been more of a priority. Strong smell of manure, that didn't bother us but some may find it unpleasant.

Brilliant friendly family site in a rural location. 16/08/2017

    Lovely quiet family campsite. Very friendly owner. The new facilities, although not quite finished yet, are great. Will be even better once they are totally sorted. Great communal fire pit and seems easy to get hold of wood to burn from the owner if you want a bigger fire. If you are out at the right time you can see bats and hear owls from right outside your tent. Also a lovely place for star gazing, we were lucky enough to be there for a meteor shower and because of the location there was very little light pollution which made for a great show. Will definitely be booking to go back for a longer visit next year!

    Disliked: 

    Slightly clearer direction on pitching would be good after booking as we did end up with another group of campers pitched up pretty much on top of us for part of our stay. I would guess this doesn't happen often though.

Absolutely awesome site with clean facilities, family friendly 14/08/2017

    We loved absolutely everything about West end farm campsite. Starting with the fact it's located on a working cattle farm and surrounded by fields and nothing but nature. Thomas has definitely got a gem of a place here and has the perfect balance of caravan/motor home pitches and grass tent pitches. The site is not too big and is perfectly situated for exploring Gloucestershire/Worcestershire. They have recently finished installing more toilets and a shower room and have done so to a great standard. I will most definitely be booking a stay here again soon and just hope that by getting all these fantastic reviews we haven't given away the biggest secret about Thomas and West end farm campsite

Great site 13/08/2017

    Friendly, small site our young daughter could run around and play without worry and we could see her so she felt she was independent going to the toilet by herself! New toilet block just been built with washing up facilities. Toilets cleaned regularly and toilet roll provided. Great short walk to the river. There is a pub within walking distance but we didn't try it. We did go to the bell inn at Frampton and the food was really good although if you go in the evening 7pm onwards looks like you make need to book a table as they were all reserved.

    Disliked: 

    It is next to a working farm so when you first arrive it takes a short while to get used to the smell and noise but you soon don't even notice it. Terrible phone signal so internet was patchy at best. The showers aren't yet working but once they are and the rubbish from the building work is cleared this site would have no dislikes.

    Friendly, small campsite in a beautiful area. Walking distance to great local pub and children's play area. Reasonable rates.

    Disliked: 

    The smell from the cows! Though we did get used to it after a while. The mess around the new toilet block of building materials (which presumably will be cleared away soon) and the non-working showers. Looking forward to those!

Directions


From M5, come off at Junction 13 and take the A38 towards Bristol. You will shortly see a garage on the left. Take the right turning signposted Frampton-on-Severn and continue to The Bell public house on the left. Pass through Frampton, continue straight over the canal bridge and go straight across (SP Arlingham and Fretherne). Do not follow the road to Saul. Continue for approximately 3 miles entering the village of Arlingham and turn left at Red Lion public house into Church Road. Pass the church on your right and West End Farm is on the right in about 250 yards.

Local attractions

's local village is Arlingham, also in the River Severn's horseshoe bend and just off Junction 13 of the M5. The area around the village is fab walking and cycling land, of public footpaths, riverside ambles and flat peaceful roads – all set among first-class mid-Wales scenery. (Don't know where to start? Ask at the Red Lion for details of their hare, salmon, cattle and skylark wanders.)

A couple of miles from the farm is the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal, running between Sharpness and the old docks of Gloucester. It's a pleasant place to while away a few meandering hours, particularly around Patch Bridge, close to the Wildfowl Reserve at Slimbridge which has the world's biggest collection of captive wildfowl.

Other local options are Berkeley and the Edward Jenner Museum, where the clever chap first figured out vaccination, and Berkeley Castle, where poor old Edward 2 met his grisly end.

Gloucester Cathedral is nine miles from the site; a little further afield are the Norman castle of Goodrich and the Tudor National Trust-managed house of Newark Park.

Must see

  • WWT Slimbridge Wetlands Centre (3.6 miles)
  • Berkeley Castle (7.2 miles)
  • Gloucester Waterways Museum (8.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Westbury Court Garden (2.3 miles)
  • Woodchester Park (8.5 miles)
