  • 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 West End Farm Campsite, 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.

Electric optional gravel touring pitch

Liked: Perfectly proportioned, off the beaten track yet easy to find, good facilities, great dog walks, very quiet, fantastic pub just a short walk away. Family run and the site helps support the working of the cattle farm, happy to support them. We only used this site to break the journey away, but will probably return again and use it as a base to explore the greater Severn/South Cotswolds area.

Electric optional gravel touring pitch

Liked: Not much

Disliked: No one available to check you in an tell you where anything was. Facilities not sign posted, clearly. Small signs on drinking water tap very poorly visible as we could not see it used tap beside else point for water supply, to find people using that later for rinsing toilet casettes. Washing up area unclean and water a tiny trickle. Hard standing pitches holding water and quite mucky. Booked 2 nights only stayed 1

From the manager: Hi, thank you for staying with us and leaving a review. Apologies for not being on site when you arrived but we are a very small and only have 5 pitches available currently due to the horrendous wet weather. We can’t afford to have someone on site all day on a campsite this size. You had our contact number if you needed us at all and we would have been more than happy to assist with anything. We don’t hire any cleaners and have to do it ourselves, we have cows calving at the moment which takes up a lot of time. So I’m very sorry if the washing up area was missed during cleaning. The hard standings being wet and the mud on site were also due to the relentless rain we have been experiencing.

Would not hesitate in visiting again

Electric optional gravel touring pitch

Liked: The site was very quiet and peaceful easy to find and good access from the village and motorway. The local pub (within walking distance) serves lovely food and local beers. The hard standing pitches were flat and a good size (accommodated the caravan, awning and car). On site facilities good. Owner friendly.

Disliked: Take a torch if walking to the pub or toilets in the dark (was not really a dislike just a comment and if you are in a caravan you will probably be using your own facilities anyway). Phone and wifi (4G/Vodaphone) not strong but beyond the control of the owner.

Electric optional gravel touring pitch

Liked: Really loved the surroundings. It was very peaceful and serene. Had a relaxing couple of days and met the owner, who was a genuinly nice guy. Like other I can highly recommend the Red Lion pub at the end of the road.

Disliked: No dislikes at all though a suggestion if I may. How about a few stepping stones to the taps, chemical toilet and bins. It was very muddy when we stayed and I think stepping stones would have been a great addition

Local attractions

West End Farm Campsite'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.
