Court Farm is located just 2-3 miles north of Gloucester along side the A38. There are bus stops in both directions right outside the gate. Meaning you can forget the car and visit local sites easily. I recommend you check the Stagecoach timetable service 71.
A bit of history.
About us. Our previous life.. Until we came to Court Farm with our American motorhome, we had owned two boats. One was a 72 foot long canal trading working boat, called "StokieNo1", from which we sold diesel and coal, "Stokie" had not only been a business, but our home too, and the other boat a 37 foot long Broom cruiser with two big Perkins Diesel engines, she was called "Islander Of Saltford", they were our life interest until the EU made trading and making money impossible & forced us out of business.
We sold both boats and bought a motorhome.
In 2009 my partner and I visited Court Farm as motor homers for a week.
We weren't impressed..
The field was shared with horses. Horses ate everything. Nothing by way of the existing site made us feel comfortable. However though the owners though were warm and helpful.
Nowadays we like to feel as if we are friends.
A little bit later, we asked the owners if they would allow us to make some dramatic changes to the field and attempt to turn it into a decent Camping site.
We needed to give the whole field a makeover. The horses departed. We asked for 500 saplings, a few sacks of grass seed and WE PROMISED FREE LABOUR.
WE STILL DO EVERYTHING FOR NO FINANCIAL REWARD.
Eventually, we got what we needed.
A few years later,, the field resembles nothing of it's previous life. It's green grass is split into tree separated areas, a number of electrical outlets and refurbished facility block.
BOTH BRIONI & I ARE STILL UNPAID Volunteers, we don't want to be paid . Money isn't everything
I could tell you much much more, but I won't, because it would sound all about us...
The most important thing we would like to say is this. And that is that without (OWNERS) Mr and Mrs Gormans agreement we would never have been given the opportunity to express ourselves in the way I have.
We would like to share what has become " Our Garden" with you.
Please ensure you arrive with UK Pounds and not Euros on ARRIVAL.
PETS ..A maximum of Two very well behaved small to medium size dogs are welcome per unit . Please bear in mind that we no longer have a dedicated dog walk area on site. All dogs must be kept on leads and never left in a caravan , motor home or tent in your absence.
Recently a dog was left outside on a chain all day while the owners were out. It had never happened before, but now it has, we must include that too as a no.
TEDDY BEARS IN TREES....WHY ?
Quite simply, right at the beginning of our tree planting, a husband and wife were here with two dogs. When they left to drive home, they went away leaving two dog toys. A fabric duck and a twisted colored rope.
Rather than me bin them, i tied them to a 2 foot high young tree just for fun.
I wondered whether they would get higher as the tree grew...Well they did. Right now the duck is about 6 feet up and the rope is more than 8 feet up.
Often, people will ask what are they all about.
SO BRING A TED, AND ONE DAY, WHEN YOU RETURN YOU'LL REMEMBER PUTTING IT IN THE TREE.
So there you have it. Mystery solved.
