August Retreat in the Cotswolds 3, 4 or 6 nights August 5 - 11 2021
Old Sodbury, Woodsidefield Motorhome Park, near Bristol and Bath

This is your next opportunity to join lunarman and Riverbankannie on a peaceful and restful weekend at the lovely CL run by our very own Quackers, Brian and Helen. Escape from the busy family holiday sites around the coast for a few days.

These dates sit nicely before the Bristol Balloon Fiesta 12 - 14 August. (Campsites open 11 August).

Located 2 miles from the M4 junction 18 on the A46 towards Stroud.

Website link Woodsidefield.co.uk

The cost will be £60 for 6 nights, £40 for 4 nights or £36 for 3 nights. 3 night stays can start Thursday or Friday.

This is a lovely rural site with a very large open space and adjacent walks in woodlands.

There are newly created drinking water and separate grey and black waste disposal points (cassettes only).

There will be room for 20 units plus the campsite wardens. This will allow for a very good sized pitch and you may put up a popup. Dogs and children are allowed.

There will be quizzes and some games and a campfire 🔥 evening and anything else we can think of. Nothing mandatory!

The Quackers ducks and chickens are also in isolation at the moment but lets hope that they will be allowed out to delight us in the early mornings.

Full Payment by bank transfer (details will be given in a later PM) to Riverbankannie by May 5th 2021.

Cancellations will attract a refund if the place can be filled by another funster on the reserve list. (and, I hardly dare add this, should the event be cancelled!)
All of the above subject to change as Government rules change as I am sure you all understand.

What there is to do.....
Walk from the campsite along the southern edge of the Cotswolds escarpment, following the Cotswold Way Path
