About Cotswolds Camping at Holycombe
Singles, couples, small campervans and children over 12 only. Dogs, groups, caravans, motorhomes and unaccompanied teenagers – no.
Our campsite is designed for those looking for a peaceful, rustic, outdoor experience, surrounded by nature and history. In order to ensure that all our guests have the quiet, peaceful experience they expect from Holycombe, we have designated our site a “Quiet Campsite”. We limit our campsite to adults and children of 12 and over only. No groups, and you are only able to make one booking per party. We do not allow people to play music, so, no radios, CDs or ipod docs, drums or other instruments. Bring your earplugs if you are sensitive to the sounds of church bells. Anyone disturbing the tranquillity will politely be asked to leave.
Holycombe adjoins Whichford Wood, where you might see Muntjac deer, polecats, or kingfishers. Continue exploring the mystical at the Rollright Stones, three miles up the A3400. Or take home a hand-made terracotta memento from Whichford Pottery (01608 684416).
Holycombe Holistic Retreat Centre and campsite is situated adjacent to Whichford Wood. There is access through the public footpath - opposite the church in the village. In early May there is a sea of bluebells, in autumn there are chestnuts and hazelnuts and quite often, if you are quiet, you will see muntjak and deer. It’s also located a short walk from the Norman Knight a classic, award winning Cotswold pub, which serves excellent grub and has great live music nights. Last orders for food 9pm but they like to know in advance if you are thinking of eating with them that late (01608 684621). It is open every day except Monday lunchtime. Also the famous Whichford Pottery and Straw Kitchen Cafe selling delicious food. So after a walk in the woods, or a pint up the road, you can roll back here, light a campfire, and enjoy this peaceful and charming place. Enjoy stargazing the dark night sky, watching the meteor showers without light pollution form our ancient stone circle.
Other Local attractions include Hook Norton Brewery and The Cotswolds Distillery in Stourton
