General

  • Glamping on a smallholding three miles from Chipping Norton
  • Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham within a 45-minute drive
  • Easy access from the A44; great gastropub a short walk away

A cosy place to stay in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to country walks and with a cracking pub pretty much next door… if that all sounds like the kind of combo you could happily deal with, plot a course to Crosshands Log Pods.

A handy position this is indeed for all sorts of outings – the site’s just off the A44 for easy comings and goings, and immensely pretty Cotswolds towns like Moreton-in-Marsh, Stow-on-the-Wold and Chipping Norton are within a 10-minute drive. Rural wanders can be had just around the site, and urban ones within a 45-minute drive in Oxford, Cheltenham or Stratford-upon-Avon.

And that pub? That would be all of 100 metres away, putting it within walking distance even if you’ve little energy left after all the exploring. A fine collection of ales and home-cooked meals is on offer here, along with takeaway pizzas if you’d rather get back to your digs. Picnic tables are on site for these or any other meals you care to serve up, and each of the units has a mini kitchen area with fridge and kettle for morning cups of tea in the open air too.

Toilets and showers are a short amble from the units, but it’s handy to have a torch to hand if you can – out in this rural spot it can get a bit dark after the sun goes down.

Lovely pod, lovely owners.30/09/2019

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The pod was fantastic. They are a modest size but perfect for a couple for 1 night. The pod was spotless, and had plates, bowls, cups and cutlery. There is a fridge and this was stocked with a welcome gift of chocolates and fresh milk from the farm. The owners were lovely.

    Disliked: 

    The men’s toilet needs an upgrade to match the ladies which looked lovely. The shared outdoor space could do with a tidy up, although it was not bad, it just didn’t match the quality of the pod.

    The surroundings

    Disliked: 

    Everything else, I was supposed to be staying in a log pod at Cross Hands Caravan Site, Moreton-in-Marsh, on the 21st of September. In the morning I received a phone call from a lady saying they had a double booking so offered me a 3 bedroom cottage (rose bank cottage) I accepted. When I arrived, I was shocked that this property was disgusting and not appropriate for paying customers. This ruined my plans for the weekend as ended up going home after being there for 10 minutes, I did not feel comfortable sleeping in this property. I have attached photos and hopefully someone else doesn't have to stay here until the property is safe and clean.

    Log Pod was not cleaned properly (found dirty tissuses both under the bed and on the floor behind the TV area.) Floor was gritty and dirty.
    Facilities were abysmal and unclean. Shower door came of its runner and landed on my foot. Panel covering the electrical consumer unit was hanging loose, very dangerous if a small child were to touch it. Barbecue area was messy with lots of old foil barbecues disregarded out the back. Decided to leave a day earlier due to the reasons above.

    I really can't fault our stay here at Chrosshands!
    If I was to be really particular, I would just suggest that perhaps paper towels to be provided in the toilet rather than the hand towel, as I would often find it wet and dirty crumpled on the floor. Otherwise - a perfect stay, and can't wait to visit again!!

Good location for a site, great caravan but in need of some TLC.19/08/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomEmma S.Confirmed

  • On-site touring caravan

  • Liked: 

    Loved the caravan....so cosy and great facilities. Really huge for a caravan and great sleeping arrangements. Little gazebo outside with seating was really great. Huge table with seating outside to play games around. The BBQ was absolutely amazing (gas run) and the little stone table outside was great.

    In a good position with lots of fun stuff to do around. We went to the Cotswold's wildlife park and it is an amazing day out for £14 (online price) and that is only half an hour from the campsite.

    Disliked: 

    Not the sites fault but there was a concert on in the field next to the site which played live music the whole time we were there, and it was BAD. So loud and endless, couldn't put our own music on and the bass was shaking the caravan. It's a shame we didn't get a heads up about it before hand.

    As other's have mentioned the facilities are a bit run down...the loo's/showers could do with some TLC and the general area of the site is a bit rough looking, but I still enjoyed it.

Directions

Local attractions

Ready to ramble? Take a 45-minute walk from the site to the ancient Rollright Stones, or to the smart Jacobean mansion Chastleton House. Batsford Arboretum (10 minutes’ drive), Mill Dene Garden and Sezincote House (15 minutes) are other options for outdoorsy wanders, and there are plenty of quiet paths nearby if you just want to take in some of the scenery.

Nippers need a crash course in country life? Take them along to meet the animals at Fairytale Farm (10 minutes) or Cotswold Farm Park (20 minutes). Got a grander vision of how you’d like to spend your rural days? Head over to the grand Blenheim Palace (20 minutes) to gawp at the stunning state rooms and formal gardens or play in the maze and ride the miniature railway.

Kid-free travellers may like to dedicate part of their day to sourcing local tipples for alfresco evenings back on site, taking tours to make sure such endeavours can also be described as educational. Take your pick from Hook Norton Brewery or the Cotswolds Distillery (for gin-drinkers) – both are around 10 minutes’ drive from the site.
