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.

Awful 06/18/2018

  • Liked: 

    Close to motorway so handy for an overnight stopover.
    Didn't have a drink or meal in the pub but it looked nice.
    Quiet

    Disliked: 

    Toilet/shower block was disgusting, lacked even basic cleaning. Even the rails on the towel warmer/radiator were filthy.
    The waste water point was also disgusting with toilet paper laying around it, right next door to the drinking water tap. The area was so bad we went to the shop to buy bottled water. The whole site including the children's play area looks to be run down and not cared for.
    We can take the rough with the smooth but wouldn't stay here again.

    Distance to Stroud

    Disliked: 

    Showers and toilet areas where disgusting and unclean. Only 4 toilets for the whole campsite!! The only rubbish bins are by the entrance none down on the pitches. The general maintenance of the site is terrible and drinking water areas are run down with pipes on the floor and bits of fencing. Area around the toilet blick smelt of sewage. No saftey equipment by the river or signs.

    Fantastic friendly staff, lovely country pub serving great food. Peaceful location.

    Disliked: 

    Not the cleanest bathrooms and they are unisex, so didn’t feel comfortable sending my daughters over by themselves.
    To get in and out of site needed staff from the pub to allow us in and out as our vehicle had a roof box on.
    Nearest shop is 2.4 miles away, could do with the pub selling basics.

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 kilometres)
  • Berkeley Castle (8.0 kilometres)
  • Painswick Rococo Garden (13.3 kilometres)

National Trust

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