About Cricket Field Campsite

Suitable For

Couples, families, tents, campervans, dogs (on leads) – yes. Caravans – by request (in order to check ground conditions).


This is typical Cotswolds country – think rolling hills, sheep-dotted fields, woods and plenty of footpaths. It's a few hundred yards to the Diamond Way, which runs past Temple Guiding church, through the village and along the riverside, north, to Ford, where there's a decent pub (The Plough Inn; 01386 584215). In Ford, the Diamond Way also intercepts the Gloucestershire Way, heading east towards Stow-on-the-Wold, one of the most popular towns in the Cotswolds and seven miles by car from the campsite. The most notable attraction nearby is undoubtedly Cotswold Farm Park (01451 850307; two miles), where children can get hands on with the farm animals, but it's also five miles to Sudeley Castle (01242 604244), six miles to the English Heritage-owned ruins of Hailes Abbey (01242 602398) and five to quirky Snowshill Manor and Gardens (01386 852410), best known for its 20th-century owner, Charles Paget Wade, who amassed an enormous collection of eccentric objects that interested him and built a model harbour village around the garden pond.

Food & Drink

There's no pub in Temple Guiting but there is a nice tea rooms (The Pantry; 01451 850577; booking advised) for fancy lunches and afternoon teas. The nearest pub is The Halfway House (01451 850344), three quarters of a mile away in Kineton, which has a lovely garden on sunny days, while it's a longer walk to Guiting Power (three miles) where there are two further pubs, a playground and a well-stocked Post Office shop.

Great little site

William and his dad looked after us well while we were here and it’s a great new campsite. William is aware of some of the improvements that could be made so I won’t mention the challenging showers (they were lovely and hot though with great pressure) We will definitely be back

Enjoyable, but not quite as hoped

The campsite is in a lovely rural location, with plenty to do nearby. We enjoyed campfires in the evening and visiting local Cotswolds towns and Snowshill. The owners were friendly, helpful and relaxed, although only present for a short time each day. We were there over August bank holiday weekend and the Friday night was wonderfully quiet with all pitches very spaced out. The Saturday night was not so quiet, as a noisy group pitched in the spot next to us playing loud music and spoilt the ambience for us somewhat (although they did turn it off by 11pm). We don't have a problem with basic amenities, but didn't feel that they were looked after during the long weekend. By Sunday, most of the toilet paper had run out and some of the toilets were not pleasant to go in as they became too full for the flap to close (if you know what I mean without me being too graphic!). By Monday, this was the case for all the toilets. To be fair, we didn't ring the owners to let them know, who may well have sorted it out, but given that it said on the website that facilities were cleaned twice daily, I didn't really consider it. All in all, we had a good weekend, but were grateful to return to a toilet where we didn't have to look at everyone else's deposits and some peace and quiet. Based on this experience, we probably wouldn't return, although we recognise that sometimes it's luck of the draw depending on who your neighbours are, and that bank holiday weekends are always going to be busier.

Basic but lovely campsite.

Plenty of space between plots Lovely view Warm showers Great eggs and runner beans from Sarahs eggs in village. Nice coffee nearby.. Could do with a bit more hands on management ie checking toilets but very pleasant nights stay..

Basic but beautiful

Basic facilities but that’s all you need! It’s in a lovely location and there is so much space on the field! It would be great to see a recycling bin there too.

Absolutely loved it

My partner and I stayed here for one night and really liked it. We opted for a more rustic camping experience and were really happy with our choice. The field is huge and well spaced between tent pitches, lots of Owls (which was great) but other than that incredibly quiet. We’d stay here again... and would go back to The Pantry too :)
