Top 10 campsites for kids – we think we’re up there!

Teddies on the swing at Willow Hill

Set on top of a small hill with stunning views over the Severn Vale and across to the Cotswolds, Willow Hill’s campsite offers children the freedom to play, explore and get close to nature.

Time to play and explore

Take your pick of games to play on the top field including farm croquet – our own rough and ready version! And when the weather’s hot, the children can take a splash in our swimming pool.* For countryside days, you can explore our fields and water meadows with our self-guided nature trails, pick a path by the River Severn or call in to Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust’s Combe Hill nature reserve and canal.

Country pub a field away

Don’t want to cook every evening? At Willow Hill, you can enjoy camping with the luxury of walking out to the local village pub. For campers wanting a leisurely evening, it’s a short walk down through our apple orchard and the footpath to The Farmers Arms. With a choice of beers, selection of wines and hearty food on the menu, The Farmers Arms is a small country pub with a big welcome.

Day trips out

From ancient forests, you can head to the rolling hills of the Cotswolds, and take an outing to pretty villages and market towns where there’s plenty for all the family to see and do. The Regency town of Cheltenham is 20 minutes away, with its elegant architecture and landscaped parks, theatre, restaurants and shops. Closer to home, the medieval town of Tewkesbury has plenty to offer, with its spectacular Abbey (do you dare to go to the top of the tower?), John Moore Countryside Museum, independent shops and restaurants.
