The Owner Says

Our shepherds hut is a little hideaway in our wildflower meadow, able to sleep 2 persons on a full sized double bed. Our shepherds hut comes complete with bedding and soft furnishings, solar lighting and also includes its very own wood burning stove to add to the comfort.

Cooking utensils, pots, pans and everything you need for cooking and washing up are also ready and waiting for you in your own private kitchen area, with a Belfast sink and running drinking water.

There is a gas cooking stove with grill and a raised fire pit which can be used to cook on. We will even provide everything needed to get your fire going include some wood so you can relax by the fire and watch the sunset. We'll also include a welcome basket containing essentials such as milk, tea, eggs and we'll add in some sweet treats such as buns or biscuits and of course some marshmallows. (Please let us know if you are vegetarian). The Shepherd's hut is adults only, and is situated at the end of our adults only orchard.

Fab Family Trip in a Tipi

We recently stayed in Tipi Amitola for 3 nights, 3 adults & 3 kids, and had a great stay. The Tipi was very warm and roomy enough for the 6 of us. We had the added bonus of a well-equipped private outdoor kitchen area and a covered table with bench seats within a roped-off area that made it feel even more secluded. A firepit outside the tipi for toasting marshmallows and watching the stars late at night and a fire bowl/bbq for cooking over along with a camping stove for a quicker brew, made for an easy trip. The showers were hot and kept clean and a freezer to keep ice packs cool. This is a nice site and we will return if we venture this way again.

Super cosy in the Shepherds Hut

Stayed in the Orchard Hut over bank holiday weekend for my partners 30th birthday and what a lovely time we had. The hut was fully equipped with everything we needed, the bed was comfier than a hotel and the whole experience was made better by the lovely staff on hand to help. The personal shower and toilet make the glamming experience that much better. Will definitely be back and would definitely recommend :)

A brief yet relaxing visit!

Just returned from a single nights' camping. Such a tranquil site and nicely set up in the meadows so you get a sense of escape from the city and feel really relaxed in the countryside. The views are fantastic and moreover it is really safe for young children to run around freely in. The facilities are great and the on-site shop sells all essentials including a fantastic coffee! There are also local supermarkets less than 10mins away and likewise some lovely local places to explore from here. Will definitely be booking a visit (for longer) next year!

Pristine campsite with great staff and facilities

This was our first time camping on a site with our friends . It was absolutely superb . Well organised site , very very clean , good shower facilities and toilets . Each pitch was far enough from others to feel private and secluded . I would highly Recommend this site to families it’s a beautiful part of the country and feels remote even though you are only a few miles from Stratford upon Avon . Shops are close by . We found that the Morrison’s in Stratford was better stocked than the closer Sainsbury’s and there is a good coop nearby as well . Highly recommend

Old-fashioned camping at its best

Gorgeous campsite, even when full at the weekend the spacing between pitches meant that we were never overlooked. We had a wonderful time despite pretty bad British weather. Only faults would be, as previously mentioned: a proper toilet block in lower field would be good; showers kept dropping their pressure and going cold on a busy Saturday morning; and the water tasted ODD. Really odd. Despite using different taps. We even found that it curdled the milk (both dairy and soya, both of which were definitely kept cold and definitely in date) in our tea. I kept expecting to get a dodgy tummy but we were all ok. Perhaps just one of those things, but I think they sell giant bottles of mineral water in the shop for this very reason. Buy one!!

Response from Twitey's Tipis and Camping Meadows

Hello and very many thanks for your review.
We do find that our camper's love the open space between pitches which also allows for open fires to work safely.
And thanks for positively letting us know about certain areas where we need to improve.
We have this year connected to the mains water supply and expect to improve water-pressure and water taste ready for the new season next year.
Sorry you had a few issues but still hope you will visit us again.
Very best wishes,
Michael, Kay and the team.
