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 campfires, 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 your bbq’s (to order) as well as the obligatory marshmallows to toast over the campfire.
We aim to provide a low impact, sustainable and eco-friendly campsite; 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 campfire but please just be respectful of the other campers and mother nature.
Facilities 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.
The field is a car-free site, which is perfect for families, it’s a short walk from the car park, and we have a fleet of wheelbarrows to ferry your gear. If we’re around you may be able to hitch a lift on the quad bike or tractor!
