The pub, seen from across the street

General

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

Hurrah, a pub site! And what a nicely named – and nicely placed – one too.

Picture this, pub site peeps: Riverside Caravan Park at The George is 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

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

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

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

Bookings must not be for more than 28 consecutive nights.

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. Owners of those above 1.9 metres can contact the warden between 8am and 8pm to raise the barrier.

    Great riverside campsite, was lovely waking up too seeing the swans on the river behind us...

    Easy to get to from the M5, lots to do in the surrounding area and ideal base to explore the Cotswolds, Gloucester etc... Everyone we spoke to was friendly, and the pub next to us did good food, and was very handy!

    Super friendly, attentive host. Standard of facilities. Locality to amenities.

    Disliked: 

    You’re charged for a powered tent pitch even though you might not want it. This seems short sighted and inflexible. It’s great that this modern site provides for all pitches to potentially have electricity but Just because each pitch has that utility available shouldn’t mean you get charged for it.

From the manager...

Many thanks for your review.
We're happy that you enjoyed your stay with us.

    We only stayed for one night unfortunately but everything was perfect. Jackie was really friendly and accommodating. We had unfortunately left our electric hitch up cable at home and she kindly lent us one for the night. We stayed with friends and had secluded pitches together by the river. We walked along the riverside in the evening and visited Slimbridge the following day. The showers were the best we have ever been in with your own private room. The George pub which was on the site was quaint the people friendly and the food reasonably priced. The best steak and ale pie ever. Thank you.

    Nothing at all.

    Very quiet with nice river walk. Clean shower block.

    Disliked: 

    The heating in the shower block wasn't switched on so considering it was October it was extremely uncomfortable having a shower. Also there were only four cubicles that were like bathrooms so a bit inconvenient if you only needed the loo and they were full.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review.
The heating has been on in our bathrooms for the last couple of weeks but I will check the timer and make adjustments!

    Disliked: 

    pitches 1,2 & 3 are perhaps a bit tight but on our stay we were on pitch 1 with another party on pitch 3. pitch 2 was left vacant, most probably good planning by the warden.
    Perhaps a little overpriced for time of year

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Use this place as a base to get to the best of Gloucestershire and its surrounds, whether you want countryside or city days in the likes of Bristol, Cheltenham and Bath. (It's a safe bet you'd like a day at Cheltenham Racecourse, 20 miles away, too.)

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 greenery you're after, several excellent options 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 to see the snowdrops if you're there in season).

Also recommended by the 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 11th-century Berkeley Castle (five miles), thought to be the place where poor old Edward Two saw his last day.

Must see

  • WWT Slimbridge Wetlands Centre (1.8 miles)
  • Berkeley Castle (5.0 miles)
  • Painswick Rococo Garden (8.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Woodchester Park (4.0 miles)
  • Westbury Court Garden (6.5 miles)
