Bowrundel Lifestyle: Arrival night time view

General

  • Family glamping in fully furnished tents near Tewkesbury
  • A 25-minute drive to Cheltenham, and 35 minutes to All Things Wild
  • Nature walk, play area on site; pubs, shops and golf 10 minutes’ drive

Offering luxury glamping in furnished tents at The Paddock, Bowrundel Lifestyle sits in Gloucestershire countryside near Tewkesbury, and is handy for both the M5 and M50. It’s a family-friendly spot with a kids’ play area and plenty of room for ball games and outdoor activities, and parents can easily keep an eye on their kids from the tents.

Speaking of the tents, these are safari tents that come decked out with beds, a sofa, a kitchenette and a woodburner, plus festoon and fairy lights for a magical night-time vibe. A short walk takes you to the old stable block, now converted to washrooms housing spotless toilet and shower facilities, plus a baby-changing area.

On this eco-friendly site, hot water is mostly generated by solar panels mounted on the roof. If you do decide to cook for yourselves, the washing-up area is at the side of the stable block – you can pick up stuff from the supermarkets in Tewkesbury (10 minutes’ drive), where there are also plenty of traditional beamed pubs serving tasty local grub if you’re having a break from cooking.

Back at base, there’s an on-site nature trail where you can spot wild flowers, birds and insects. The owners encourage you to stick to the footpath so you don’t disturb the wildlife.

    Wow what can i say. The safari tent was so awesome and everything was thoughtfully and carefully planned. We had cooking facilities, wood burner for the chilly nights, and comfortable bedding with thick quilts. They also provided hot water bottles and blankets which was much appreciated. The showers and toilets were all new and clean. I loved the layout, style and use of the wood cladding (very eco)
    It was so peaceful and we were the only campers during our stay. We didn't see anyone else, we had the site to ourselves. Wish we could stayed longer and the weather warmer as it was so cold during our stay. The log burner really helped thankfully.

    Disliked: 

    However I felt the hot water wasn't hot enough I believe it was heated up by solar, Despite that, I have no complaints about everything else.

  • Liked: 

    We stayed in a safari tent which was amazing!everything was spotless and high quality. The beds were super comfy and we had great nights sleep. The shared toilet block was spotless and catered for children with changing table. The site with two other bell tents and one other safari tent gave it a relaxing space that gave peace and quiet whilst feeling you had your own privacy. Little play Park was fantastic for our two year old safe to sit back and watch them play as they were in a secure location with lots of free space to explore.
    The owners were always easy to contact and will happily and promptly assist with any queries. I made a error with booking date but Katy quickly amended me this with no additional cost.
    We can not wait to return to this beautiful site.

    We booked last minute due to the events of this year so weren’t sure what we would find but we were so lucky with finding the Foxglove safari tent at Bowrundel. We have camped & caravanned for years but I would say that the cleanliness of the tent and site, and also the facilities, were top class.

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike but for completeness it is worth mentioning that the site is close to the M50 and so you do hear the traffic. However the 1st night was probably one of the busiest travel nights of the year and even more so with people holidaying in the UK but the 2nd & 3rd night we didn’t even notice the traffic noise.

    Excellent glamping! We had a lovely Bell tent which had everything we needed, which faced out on to a lovely field with playground/nature trail in the corner, perfect for the kids to explore. With only 3 other families potentially sharing the excellent new toilet/showerr block, there was loads of room!

The kids can get hands-on with keeper sessions and meerkat encounters at All Things Wild activity centre (35 minutes), spot the artworks at Showborough House Garden Sculpture Exhibition (10 minutes’ walk) or let off steam in the adventure playground at Sudeley Castle and Gardens (half an hour’s drive), while you check out the Tudor-themed exhibitions.
