About Elmwicke Camping

Suitable For

Everyone! Tents, campervans, motorhomes, caravans, kids, dogs (on leads)...


It's 10 minutes to the western edge of the Cotswolds (and around 15 to Sudeley Castle and Cleeve Hill), Cheltenham and the medieval town of Tewkesbury, host to one of the largest medieval festivals in the world. Sherdons Golf Course in Tredington is a five-minute drive away, they have a good pirate themed mini golf adventure round which is great fun for all ages. The Forest of Dean is around 40 minutes away, where there are lots of forest trails for cycling, as well as a sculpture trail to walk. Puzzlewood is a particularly fantastic place to visit here – the wood has been used as a filming location for many major films and television programs, including Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings. Gloucester is just 15 minutes’ drive away, the Cathedral there, too, is another must see for all Harry Potter fans, try and match the setting to your favourite scenes.

Food & Drink

The Gloucester Old Spot (012426 80321) is a 20-minute walk away or a couple minutes’ drive, the freehouse serves local ales and ciders and their food has been included in the Michelin Guide to pubs. Five minutes’ drive away is The House in The Tree (01242 680241), a great country pub with outdoor and indoor space as well as a children's play area and animal petting zone. No.3 Restaurant (01242 903790) is just over a ten-minute drive away, serving everything from a full English to their renowned tomahawk steaks. Their main restaurant is lovely but there's also a charming outdoor dining space, which is covered for all weathers.

Great Stay

We stayed here for 4 nights and loved our stay. The facilities are really clean and the owners were lovely. There are so many places to visit nearby. We will definitely stay again if ever in the area. Thank you for a lovely week!!

Everything we wanted and more.

Extremely friendly family run farm. The shower/toilet block was the cleanest I’ve ever been to. Spotless washing up facilities with the added bonus of a freezer (no one likes a warm vodka) and a fridge. We will 100% be back next year.

Excellent spot!

We visited Elmwicke in the summer holidays. Excellent location with great access to the beautiful Cotswolds and Cheltenham. The owners were so helpful and the toilet/laundry/shower block was new and clean. The campsite itself was really spacious and dog friendly which was a huge plus for us. The kids love seeing the animals and tractors on the farm. This is a great find and we will definitely be back!!!

RElaxing, froendly and well organised

The site is a very large field with lots of recreational space in the centre. The owners asre exceprionally friendly and helpful. There are good site facilities and a cafe for morning bacon butties etc. for those who wish to avoid cooking in the morning. Children are encouraged to have a ride in a tractor and trailer around the farm and see how the sheep are looked after. The owners also sell lamb burgers, lamb and mint sausages and lamb chops etxc for BBQ's - all of which are excellent. A really friendly site.

Went the extra mile

Lovely setting, relaxed atmosphere, but excellent campsite owners who really and truly do go the extra mile. They gave us all a tractor ride around the plot and then we got a tour around the farm, where the children were given food to feed the pet sheep and goats. Ruth explained how they run their farm including the wool production and how some of the equipment worked, it was an excellent experience that our boys learnt a lot from. Soon their new facilities block will be open, which includes a family shower room, accessible facilities, laundry and washing facilities, and a cafe. We will be back to experience that too! But I can honestly say, having had many camping experiences these guys give the best and most wonderful welcome we have ever had.

Getting There

If you’re travelling from the South, exit the A38 by taking the second exit onto Estcourt Road. Carry on for a few hundred yards and then take the second exit, again travelling onto Estcourt Road. After just under a mile, take the third exit at the roundabout onto Tewkesbury Road. Half a mile later you’ll come to another roundabout, take the second exit (again onto Tewkesbury Road). Continue for just over a mile then take the first exit at the next roundabout. Carry on for just over four miles and then turn right onto the A4019. Continue for a mile and then turn left onto Stoke Road. Follow the road for a mile or so and then turn left onto Copse Green Lane. Elmwicke Camping will be half a mile on from here on your left.

The nearest train station is in Cheltenham Spa (five miles), which has a taxi rank outside.
