“Good base”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Stayed Mon to Fri in a 3 bedroom riverside lodge. 2 adults and 4 teens but enough room. Lovely setting out of the way by the river. Bearable walk into Stratford (20 mins) along Millionaires Row. Didn't really use any of site facilities but very quiet and clean even tho it was packed with caravans. Used as a base and visited Warwick Castle and Cadbury World. Ate at the Crown Tiddington which was vey friendly (drinks expensive, food reasonably priced and delicious)

We originally had only booked for seven nights but liked it so much we stayed on for a few extra nights ! Yes there are a lot of rules but to be honest if you have a modicum of common sense then they won't apply to you. Such as - do not put disposable bbqs straight on to the grass, do not wear shoes in the shower cubicle etc etc. One thing I did find annoying was the fact that many dog owners on site found it perfectly acceptable to let their dogs bark at any time of the day ( or night ) not just an occasional bark but letting it go on for minutes at a time - very annoying ! The new clubhouse wasn't complete at the time of our visit ( 15/7/13 - 24/7/13 ) but looking at it I don't think it will be complete till next year. Its reputed to be costing in excess of three million pounds and it looks like it does. It is absolutely massive and looks like it should belong in Star Wars. Quite how this will fit in with everything else around it only time will tell.

The toilet/shower blocks are kept exceptionally clean ( they don't close for cleaning but are cleaned throughout the day ) by a Polish man named Richard who doesn't speak much English but keeps them all pristine. All the wardens are friendly and will stop for a chat when they are not showing people to their pitches ( there is a constant stream of units arriving from 1200 to 2000 ). It was very busy when we were there and there were site full notices up on a couple of days. Never tried the 99p breakfast but it seemed busy enough in the café ( strange opening hours ) The café itself looks well past its sell by date, its just an ols portakabin with a few tables out front under a metal framed canopy. We walked into Tiddington village, only five minutes walk where I can recommend The Crown pub for an excellent lunch or dinner ( except Mondays ). There is also a Spar store, off license, Chinese restaurant and an Indian Restaurant ! Stratford town centre is only about a mile away ( £6 in a taxi ) or you can use the excellent water taxis which depart from the site - £1.50 each way for an adult, they are good value for money and you also get to see the fabulous houses where the gardens run down to the river ( theres one for sale at the moment for £1.7 million ) All in all an excellent site, well run with good staff. We will be back, if only to see the new clubhouse when its complete.

Stayed in our Motorhome, the pitch was ok, quiet enough location.
The café was both good and bad, the evening meal of Steak and Pudding, chips and peas, looked better than it tasted, I think it was the pudding. My better half had the sausage and mash which she described as plastic.
Next morning we risked the 99p breakfast, sausage, bacon, egg and fried bread. Never going to win any awards besides value for money.

Over all ups and downs.

Oh yes, a must is the ferry service from the campsite to the town centre, well worth the £1.50 per person each way.

I stayed for a week and was surprised at how quiet the site was considering the amount of caravans on both sides of the river and the adjacent site. If this is achieved with all the rules and regulations then I am glad they are enforced. Whilst we all like children and have got some of our own, albeit, grown up, we do not want our holiday peace shattered with unruly, undisciplined ones. So, if certain individuals do not like this policy, then I suggest they go to Butlins. However, I have not visited during school summer holidays and would probably be a bit reluctant to. The location is wonderful, secluded, yet right on Stratford Upon Avons doorstep. I would recommend it to anyone. The only thing missing is a swimming pool and I have one minor gripe, the café staff are so miserable, but food is great.

Just returned from a two night stay in the snugs at riverside with hubby and large German shepherd. We had a great time, weather amazing .Great upgrade from a normal camping holiday. Caravan park excellent.wonderful location right on the river Avon.1 mile from Stratford nice flat walk in and also found a lovely riverside walk back to the park which brings you into the Avon caravan site.we found the caravan park and Stratford town centre very dog friendly even with a 8 stone German shepherd. We had a lovely meal in the beer garden at the crown pub in tiddington which is only a few minutes walk from caravan park.we will be booking again soon for next year.loved it.

Lovely stay. Ideal for people who don't drive as very close to town centre and bus stops to Coventry, Warwick and Leamington Spa. Lovely people and very quiet, ideal if looking for quiet break with partner. Snugs are lovely and warm, designated toilets and showers although only two of each so can imagine there bring a struggle for facilities in high season with all snugs occupied to the maximum. Cafe on site was yummy. Staff very friendly and helpful. Will return again soon!

We have stayed many many times over the years at this site in a static caravan. The location is hard to beat and the lovely relaxing ambiance of the site and surrounding area is a real tonic. Yes there are "rules and regulations" which we find no problem at all to us it is a bonus that people enjoy themselves but no rowdiness..BUT....not sure about the new Club House Complex that is being constructed. I know it isn't finished yet so perhaps too early too judge but from what I can see it is large...as the previous person said ...looming....modern...mmm...yes but not sure if it will fit in with the overall character of the site. I can understand that a new modern complex was needed but did it have to be so domineering and "plonked" on "stilts"....to avoid floods... in a prime position right next to the river. The old clubhouse was more unobtrusive.
We too will look for alternative accommodation...just in case... because we like the area but we are very very unsure about how the new complex will affect the site and if it alters it to something completely different sadly it will no longer be for us.
