Baldwins Brook Glamping

6 units · Glamping, Motorhomes3 acres · England
Small dog-friendly site on the banks of the river Severn Adjacent to the Severn Way and half an hour’s walk from the canal Wildlife haven within walking distance of pubs and Frampton on Severn Craving a peaceful time filled with wildlife watching, long walks and relaxing by the water? On the banks of the River Severn, Baldwin’s Brook Glamping in Gloucestershire fits the bill. This small site is a wildlife haven adjacent to the Severn Way, a long-distance trail which traces the river downstream. Birdwatching prospects are excellent here, and there’s plenty of peace if you’d rather sit and relax by a firepit or check out the stunning views and sunsets. The site is part of a working family farm with lots of livestock. From the farm, it’s a 45-minute walk to Frampton on Severn, which is home to the longest village green in England and the lively Frampton Country Fair (think funfair… and 400 stalls full of good stuff). Baldwin’s Brook Glamping is also half an hour’s walk away from the Cotswold Canal Trust Visitor Centre by The Gloucester and Sharpness Canal if you’d like to grab a spot on a boat trip or sip a coffee by the canal. When you'd rather have a chilled beer, two pubs are within half a mile of the site (only 10 minutes’ walk away). Strike up a conversation with a local about the next Severn Bore, the huge tidal wave which races for 25 miles from Awre to Gloucester down the estuary just a handful of times per year.

Campsites in Gloucestershire guide

Overview

Whether you’re hiking through woodlands, cycling between Cotswold-stone villages, wandering around an ancient arboretum, or settling in for a farm-fresh countryside picnic, Gloucestershire is an outdoors delight. The 790-square-mile Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is one of England’s most rewarding and expansive walking areas, with miles of protected paths, including the 102-mile Cotswold Way (a favourite of long-distance walkers). To the west, on the Welsh border, the isolated Forest of Dean bursts with wildlife and water activity. Spring and autumn are perfect for exploring nature without summer-season crowds, though Gloucestershire charms visitors even in winter.

Where to go

Northern Cotswolds

The honey-stone, thatch-roof villages of the northern Cotswolds are some of England’s most beautiful, from historical Stow-on-the-Wold to creative, antiques-filled Broadway and Chipping Campden. Hike along the Cotswold Way, surrounded by green countryside, with stops at wool-trade churches, ancient almshouses, dramatic lookouts (such as 18th-century Broadway Tower) and former coaching inns (many now converted into lively pubs and restaurants). There’s plenty of other outdoor fun, too—especially horse riding and cycling. Camping, glamping and caravan sites are scattered around, and there are wonderful farmers’ markets and local delis for stocking up on fresh produce.

Southern Cotswolds

Meandering footpaths, thatched cottages, and distinctive Gothic churches set the scene in the less-touristy southern half of Gloucestershire’s Cotswolds. Here campers can wander between golden-stone villages such as Painswick (don’t miss the Rococo Garden), Northleach (an underappreciated highlight), and Bibury (one of the Cotswolds’ dreamiest), and dive into local history in Cirencester, Uley, Stroud, and beyond. Outdoors, it’s all about walks through the southwestern Cotswolds AONB and Westonbirt Arboretum, along with cycling, horse riding, birdwatching, and wild swimming. Places to set up camp range from farm meadows to lakeside huts.

Forest of Dean

Bordering Wales in far-west Gloucestershire (and parts of Herefordshire), between the Severn and Wye rivers, the mysterious Forest of Dean is a 42-square-mile natural wonderland packed with adventure. Find quiet trails through England’s oldest oak forests (whose secluded beauty inspired JK Rowling and JRR Tolkien); kayaking, paddle-boarding, and birdwatching from the riverside village of Symonds Yat; plus caving, rock-climbing, abseiling, and rafting. The best of the many caravanning, camping, and glamping sites overlook the rushing Wye.

Cheltenham, Gloucester & Around

Elegant Cheltenham, Gloucestershire’s main town, was once an important 18th-century spa destination and still flaunts its Regency architecture and landscaped gardens, while the county capital Gloucester is home to an unmissable Perpendicular Gothic cathedral (where scenes from Harry Potter were filmed). The surrounding countryside is dotted with ideal stops for campers, from holiday parks to fruit farms to rural pubs.
