camping /ˈkampɪŋ/
the activity of spending a holiday living in a tent.
"camping attracts people of all ages"

Pitch perfect

The site itself is actually an untamed ancient orchard that slopes down to woodland and a stream that marks the boundary of our land. You will be camping amongst the wildflowers and the unusual ‘otherworldly’ ant hills that tell us that this land has been undisturbed for centuries.

The opportunities for wildlife ‘safaris’ are endless, from your run of the mill rabbits and more than our fair share of woodland birds to badgers, foxes and muntjac deer roaming around your tent at night, to sightings of fallow deer and buzzards, sparrow hawks and the occasional red kite flying overhead.

We allow camp fires, as long as they are off the ground (bring your own fire pit, or you can hire one from us) and we have nets of logs and kindling for sale at our honesty shop, we also sell (amongst other things) locally produced meat for breakfast and your bbq's, as well as the obligatory marshmallows to toast over the campfire.

We aim to provide a low impact, sustainable and eco-friendly camp site; it’s a field on a farm, with lots of peace & quiet (although the abundance of wildlife mean that it is anything but quiet), for people who are looking for a real back to nature camping experience. Please come and have fun, enjoy a glass of local cider around the camp fire but please just be respectful of the other campers and mother nature.

are basic, but comfortable and clean. At the moment we have 1 composting toilet, 1 gas shower and a covered washing up area. There is no electricity in the campsite and the lighting in the facilities block is solar powered. From time to time we add a couple of portable composting toilets around the site to help free up the main toilet if we have a lot of guests.

The field is a car free site, which is perfect for families, it’s a short walk from the car park, and you can borrow one of wheel barrows to ferry your gear. If we're around you may be able to hitch a lift on the quad bike and trailer for £1.50 per journey (we used to offer this service for free, but unfortunately due to the size of tents these days and the amount of equipment campers tend to bring, we found we are sometimes doing 3 or 4 trips per pitch, and burning through the petrol, so have taken the decision to charge) - but this is not always guaranteed, so be prepared for a few trips back and forth with the wheelbarrows!
