The Owner Says
About Cricket Field Campsite
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.
