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 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.

Please note

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

    Owner stopping by quickly to chat
    Quietness of the site at this time of year
    Walks nearby
    locals polite and friendly
    Pub 10 mins walk away
    Canal walk
    1 hour drive from puzzle wood
    Wild fowl centre close by

    Disliked: 

    a lot of Dog poo, really spoilt my rating of the camp site, I hate it and this is the reason why I don't have a dog. This is not normally a problem with campsites I've visited before, most dog owners know the score and clean up. My daughter found it all over the site and on route to the ablutions.

    I would have given the site top marks if this wasn't the case.

A good site. 15/10/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Mick K. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Great hidden site. Sheltered by trees and bushes. Clean and functional. 1/2 mile from a very dog friendly decent pub. 1/4 of a mile from the Severn path with a lot of local dog walks.

    Toilet blocks are clean showers are great with a decent plate wash although this is under the gable end it is exposed to blustery winds.

    Adult site in my opinion nothing much locally for the kids.

    Locals are friendly and welcoming.

    We’ll definitely return.

    Disliked: 

    Need another water point nearer to the toilets. Only 2 points at the entrance to the site.

    Not much for kids to do except walk and ride bikes.

Great small site that has everything you need. 09/10/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Doreen B. Confirmed

  • Electric optional gravel touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    Loved the way the site was laid out and the ease of accessed to everything
    The grass was cut short and no grass cuttings being carried in on feet.
    Choice of grass or hard standing pitches
    A lovely walk directly to the river was just perfect for the dogs as no traffic so they could run free and enjoy themselves.
    Very peaceful, very quiet
    Village pub just seven minutes walk from the site .great touring area
    This was my first visit to Westend farm but will certainly not be my last.
    Very impressed
    Would love a small map showing pathways in the area so that I could explore more

    Disliked: 

    The fact that motor homes were arriving after 11-00 at night and parking up right by me to fill up with water.
    Vehicles moving around at all hours
    It appeared that one van left at around six in the morning and returned after ten at night. Possible trying to avoid paying for the very reasonable site fees

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

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.

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