The Willows

70a0c18c-7b08-45dd-9d2d-6ea84a3c17d6
THE Willows (formerly known as Lower Lode Caravan Park) has been re-developed to offer a delightful rural escape with static caravans and touring pitches.

Split into two fields, the first provides accommodation for 25 fully serviced static caravans, which are thoughtfully positioned around a beautifully landscaped centrepiece.

The second field, available from late May, is being specifically developed for tourers and will feature 21 hard standing, fully serviced pitches.

Surrounded by idyllic  countryside, The Willows is more than just a rural retreat. There is fresh water fishing from the River Severn, which lies just 100 yards from the park. Permits are available from the 15th century pub, which is next door.

Tewkesbury is within easy reach with its wide selection of shops and entertainment. This thriving town is a living museum of architecture and social history spanning 500 years, and presenting one of the best medieval townscapes in England with its fine half-timbered Tudor buildings, overhanging upper storeys and ornate doorways.

At the meeting of the Rivers Severn and Avon, the surrounding rivers and flood plain have prevented the old town from expanding, so that its long, thin profile has hardly altered since the Middle Ages.

With much to delight the visitor, you can discover the hidden charms along narrow alleyways, where the eaves of crooked timber buildings nearly touch, or take a leisurely cruise along the river. 

Tewkesbury is dominated by the 12th century Abbey. Known to some as the ‘Westminster Abbey’ of the feudal barony, this beautiful building has the highest Norman tower in England, as well as rich architecture and artistic heritage. Also here are the John Moore Countryside Museum, the Town Museum and the Old Baptist Chapel.

A warm welcome awaits you at The Willows. All we ask is that you check availability prior to your arrival.
