Spacious pitches at The Pepper Pot

General

  • Green and spacious park in Gloucestershire
  • On-site restaurant famous for its excellent food
  • Seven miles to Sharpness Canal and Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust

Greenery and space are on the menu at The Pepper Pot near Dursley in Gloucestershire, which is kept tiptop by its on-site and friendly wardens, who live in and are to hand for any advice or help needed by Pepper Potters during their stay.

Facilities are well-maintained and in a purpose-built shower and loo block; an indoor washing-up area and a coin-operated washing machine are also on site.

But the best part of The Pepper Pot? Its on-site bar and bistro, Hoggies, with decently priced home-cooked meals using the best of local ingredients from local suppliers, such as salads, burgers and quality matured steaks. (If you think your little mover and shaker won't fancy a steak, they have plenty to pick from on the children's menu.)

    Lovely small site.
    Loved how there was room in the middle for the children to play.
    Generous sized, flat pitches. Many have low hedges at the sides which gives added privacy. The night lights were great and we didn't really need a torch when making a trip to the toilets.
    Two toilets and two showers available in the ladies and mens.
    Two washing up sinks and a washing machine available.
    Having the gates locked at night made us feel secure.
    As other reviewers have mentioned, the site is close to the M5 and so you can some traffic noise. However, we were aware of this when we booked and I have to say that the background noise did not bother us at all.
    A clean and well kept site with a warden who is friendly and approachable.

    Lovely clean, quiet campsite. Close to M5 as we had days out in Bath and Gloucester Quays.
    £1 to use the washing machine which was really handy.
    Pub next door done great desserts - worth the money.

    Disliked: 

    Caravan needs some blackout blinds or dark curtains as sun rises really early.

    We stopped at the Pepper Pot for two nights to break up our journey home from Cornwall and we're so glad we did because we received a very warm welcome to a lovely site. The facilities were spotlessly clean and the site is in a nice rural setting.
    The lady who ran the site couldn't have been more helpful.
    We ate at the pub next door on the first evening and although the menu was limited due to them not long reopening after lock down the food was great, the atmosphere was chilled and the staff were attentive and polite.
    Perfect.

Local attractions

The Pepper Pot Caravan Park is in a decent spot to use as a base for exploring Gloucestershire and its surrounds, particularly for those who like their wildlife or historic homes. Plenty of other activities and attractions can be found within ten miles.

Two golf clubs are within a quick drive, the Stinchcombe Hill Golf Club two and a half miles away and the Cotswold Edge Golf Club within five. Also within a short drive are Berkeley Castle and the Vale of Berkeley (two and a half miles) and the Cattle Country Adventure Park (two miles) for yee-haw adventuring.

Wildlife types have the River Severn Estuary and the Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust to explore within six and seven miles respectively, with more species to see at Oldown Country Park eight miles away; wildfowl and other critters along the nearby Gloucester to Sharpness Canal, and Dean Forest and the Wye Valley 11 miles from base.

More into historic homes, local history or greenery? Take your Pepper Pot pick from the National Trust's Woodchester Mansion and park or Westbury Court Gardens (seven and 11 miles); Chavenage House and the National Arboretum at Westonbirt (both ten miles), or the National Waterways Museum at Gloucester Docks 16 miles away.

The Pepper Pot team also recommends a punt at Chepstow Racecourse, 11 miles away; a look at the longest village green in England at Frampton On Severn nine and a half miles away, or a dip at Dursley Pool and Sports Centre within five and a half miles. For day trips, sink into some shopping and sightseeing at Bristol or spa city Bath.
