A peaceful, family-friendly Gloucestershire retreat surrounded by fields and ancient apple orchards, Willow Hill is on a farm just outside the village of Apperley and 20 minutes’ drive from Gloucester.
This chilled-out site is located within about half an hour’s drive of not one, not two, but three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty: the Cotswolds, which it overlooks, the Malvern Hills and the Wye Valley. Needless to say, there’s some splendid scenery around these parts, and some equally splendid places for a walk or bike ride. It’s about a mile through the apple orchards to the Severn Way, or two miles to ancient Odda’s Chapel. Other places to explore nearby include Tewkesbury (10 minutes’ drive), Upton on Severn and the lovely spa town of Cheltenham (both 20 minutes).
If you decide to stick around the site, you can spend your time gazing out over the gorgeous hilly scenery (particularly fine at sunrise or sunset) or swimming a few laps in the heated saltwater pool, with its raised sun deck and six-person hot tub. There’s also table service poolside, so you don’t have to go far or make much of an effort for a drink or a snack; more substantial meals are also available on site from the site's very own Happerly Kitchen.
Those travelling with kids are likely to be pleased to find plenty of space on site to kick a football around, and the owners can also set up badminton nets and ping-pong tables.
Amenities at Willow Hill include toilets, hot showers, a laundry area, a camp kitchen, and electrical points for charging your devices. Two pubs within a five-minute drive of the site serve traditional British food.
