General

  • Well-maintained and peaceful park set alongside the River Cam
  • Many country walks nearby
  • Pub and beer garden

Hurrah, another Pitchup.com pub campsite! And what a nicely named – and nicely placed – one too.

Picture this, pub campsite peeps: Riverside Caravan Park at The George, a peaceful, popular and very friendly park set along the wildlife haven of Gloucestershire's River Cam, with its own old-style family inn serving up home-cooked local nosh and traditional ales and ciders at decent prices (it should also certainly be mentioned that The George has its own steakhouse section and regular steak nights).

The park – and pub – is an easy ten minutes from the M5, making it a peachy place to use as a base for exploring Gloucestershire or as a stopover on the way to or from Cornwall and the southwest, and close to countryside walks passing along the river to snap otters, kingfishers, swans and other wildfowl on the smartphone.

There's easy access to the A38 to get to other Gloucestershire highlights, like 16 miles of coarse fishing on the Gloucester to Sharpness Canal within three miles and the Forest of Dean eight miles away. And it should certainly also be mentioned that The George has a large beer garden, with plenty of benches for riverside relaxing and looking for those otters and swans...

The amenities are roomy and well-maintained and include a family-friendly shower block with easy access, a loo and shower accessible to disabled guests, washing-up facilities in the main shower block, a washing machine and a children's playground.

Please note

Facilities/activities including the launderette are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

There is open, unfenced water on site.

Please bear in mind when booking that there is a height restriction barrier in place of 1.9 metres: this is for security purposes. Cars are issued with key cards to allow access on and off the site.

Motorhomes staying for more than one night will have access on and off the site between the hours of 9am and 12pm and 4pm and 6pm. If you require access on or off site outside these times, please note that your booking will be cancelled and deposit lost.

    The park was quite empty. Liked the bushes between each tent. The toilet and shower facilities were clean. Nice walks nearby for dogs

    Disliked: 

    Even with the bushes the pitches were very close together. No signs for toilets and other facilities so time spent wandering around. Public footpath behind the pitches by the river mean you are constantly disturbed

    Loved the riverside walk, ideal for the dog(and us) as it wasn't too long!! The staff were very helpful and friendly and quickly sorted problems as they arose.There was an issue with our pitch already being taken but that was dealt with. The pitches are level and surrounded by tall hedges so were secluded while the storm blew! Loved the feral kittens and was amazed to be joined in our tent by a young hedgehog!

    Disliked: 

    Some of the campers who were making a lot of noise until the early hours - I would not pitch here over a weekend again - nobody about to stop the noise and no visible reminders of consideration of others. A reminder might also have prevented the dog poo that was left on our pitch resulting in a disgusting mess on our tent. The same consideration was VERY visibly missing in the state the toilets were left in after the weekend.The staff as I said were quick to deal with problems as they occurred, but I would have preferred a higher presence of staff on the camp site, then maybe I would not have to find someone each time.

From the manager...

Many thanks for your review.

Local attractions

Use Riverside Caravan Park at The George as a base to get to the best of Gloucestershire and its surrounds, whether you want to stick close to the countryside or have city days in the likes of Bristol, Cheltenham and Bath. (We bet you'd like a day at Cheltenham Racecourse 20 miles away too.)

Within strolling distance, walk the dogs and/or the kids at the little Rosie's Wood, taking the footpath along the river from the park and over the bridge. Two miles away, the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust's Slimbridge reserve gives juicy chances to see resident ducks, swans and thousands of migratory birds alongside stacks of events like otter feeds, guided walks and canoe safaris.

If it's more nature, greenery and gardens you're after, several excellent options as well as the Forest of Dean are an easy drive away: the 22-acre village green at Frampton on Severn, said to be the longest in England, within a five-mile drive; scenic strolls along the River Severn, within four miles; the National Trust's Westbury Court Gardens, seven miles away, and Stroud's hidden valley Painswick Rococo garden eight miles away (be sure and see the snowdrops if you're there in season).

Great golf in scenic surroundings can be had at Stinchcombe Hill Golf Club, on the southern edge of the Cotswold Escarpment above the Severn Valley and three miles from The George, but if your small cowboys and cowgirls don't fancy that, hustle them to the play areas and farm animals at Cattle Country Adventure Park four and a half miles away.

Also recommended by the Riverside Caravan Park at The George team are Gloucester Docks and the National Waterways Museum ten miles away; Woodchester Mansion, an odd and unfinished country house surrounded by National Trust parkland (four and half miles), and eleventh century Berkeley Castle (five miles), traditionally thought to be the place where poor old Edward Two saw his last day.

Must see

  • WWT Slimbridge Wetlands Centre (2.9 kilometers)
  • Berkeley Castle (8.0 kilometers)
  • Painswick Rococo Garden (13.3 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Woodchester Park (6.4 kilometers)
  • Westbury Court Garden (10.5 kilometers)
