To Find Site:- Leave M40 at junction 15 and take A429 in the direction of Cirencester. In about seven miles turn right at roundabout onto B4086 towards Stratford upon Avon. Pass through Tiddington village and the campsite is on the right opposite NFU Mutual. The site can also be approached from Stratford, once over Clopton Bridge take first left towards Tiddington and site in about a mile on the left.

Riverside Park is nicely situated on the banks of the River Avon. The site accepts touring units but not tents. The site slopes down from the main road towards the river and static accommodation is at the top of the site, no doubt to protect them from winter flooding. There are several touring sections near to the river on mainly level grass although it is a bit bumpy. The pitches are of a reasonably size and are marked out by the electric points which are fixed to high posts. Site staff accompany you to your pitch. The electrical connections are  rated at 10 amps and use  CEE17 blue connectors. Water points are dotted around the site but the only grey water waste disposal is next to the motorhome service point. The toilet block is of the older variety and whilst it is perfect clean and serviceable it could be improved by a refurbishment. Within the building is a covered dish wash facility and also a washing machine and tumble dryer. The site has a rather swish looking restaurant/bar overlooking the river which looks like a fairly recent addition to the site. It is popular with campers and prices are not too bad and the food good. They also do takeaway food as well. The building is on stilts and underneath they have a crazy golf course and adjacent to that a children’s playground. There is site wide WiFi which is not that cheap but gets better value the longer period you pay for. In fairness to the site they do give a fifteen minute free access a day which is probably enough to check e-mails. The mobile signal is good here as well so mobile data could also be used. Reception has a small area dedicated to local information. There is no onsite shop but a few essentials are sold in reception. The site operate a water taxi service from a landing stage by the  restaurant and the service will take you right into Stratford upon Avon. During our stay the cost was £2 each way for an adult which was actually cheaper than the bus if you don’t have a Bus Pass! I was surprised how good the pitch prices were if you take the Monday to Friday four day deal which worked out at a very reasonable nightly cost even in high season. If you show your C&CC membership card you will get an additional discount.

The major  advantage of this campsite is the proximity to Stratford upon Avon which is about a mile from the site. The is also a footpath along the road all the way into town for those that prefer to walk. As well as the water taxi direct from the site there is a regular bus service from Tiddington village which is only a short walk from the site. The village has a convenience store, a pub and several restaurants. Stratford provides both cultural and retail therapy depending on your needs. If you wanted to see a Shakespeare  play at the RSC it would only be a short taxi ride back to the site if you also wanted to enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants in the town. If you prefer messing about on the river there are also trip boats. Fishing is also free from the banks of the Avon from within the campsite but you do need a Rod Licence.
