Tewkesbury Abbey Caravan Club Site, Gander Lane, Tewkesbury, GL20 5PG, Tel 01684294035

To Find Site:- Leave M5 at junction 9 and take A438 towards Tewkesbury. In town centre at roundabout take first exit. In a couple of hundred metres turn left into Gander lane. This lane narrows on the approach where it crosses a stream so care is required with cars exiting the car parks. The entrance to the site is just past the car park on the left.

This site is situated in a semi urban environment next to Tewkesbury Abbey and a short walk into the town. The wardens make great efforts to create a floral welcome to the site with reception decked with flowers. Tents and non-members are welcome at this site. There are around 140 pitches which are all on grass. Whilst many are level some will require a little levelling. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16 amps using CEE17 blue connectors. There are three toilet blocks which, due to the risk of flooding, are all raised above normal site level. However all but one of them has ramp access for the disabled. The blocks are functional and clean rather than being luxurious. The motorhome service point is at the front of the site. Reception sells a few essentials and newspapers can be ordered. Next door is a small information room. There is site wide WiFi, time can be purchased online. I have to say I found it quite slow even on fairly basic tasks. Whilst there are no play facilities on site for children there is a large adventure playground immediately outside the site entrance in the adjacent park.

The Abbey is only a short walk from the site and the town a little further. There are lots of restaurants and tea rooms and the town provides a good selection of shops. There is a Morrisons on the approach to the town from the motorway. The site is ideally situated to visit the Severn and Avon valleys. For many it will be a convenient overnight stop to and from the West Country being so close to the M5.
