The Owner Says
Our campsite is a great place for families, walkers, cyclists & holiday makers! With beautiful views, and an adjacent footpath which links us to the Weald Way where two excellent local pubs, offering good food&drink (The Six Bells & The Gun) can both be walked to.
During your stay enjoy visiting our beautiful donkeys, pedigree flocks of Lleyn and Ryeland sheep, Pygmy goats, Oxfordshire Sandy and Black Pigs, free range chickens, geese and ducks. The farm is open every morning for you to meet and feed the animals.
Our free range eggs and sausages are available to buy so you can have fresh eggs for breakfast! Any other produce and essentials and an excellent cafe be found at our local village shop.
Campfires are welcomed and each pitch has its own fire pit for you to use.Logs and fire starter packs (kindling, matches, firelighters & newspaper) are available to purchase, to make for a perfect evening under the stars.
