Back-to-nature, rustic, natural,
Strawfields is the perfect rural escape with a back-to-nature style of camping. The very small and welcoming campsite offers you a unique stay in a peaceful relaxed setting. The wooden shower block has hot showers, flushing loos and sinks with lovely views across the fields. The facilities are quirky and rustic with a natural feel. Perfect for solo travellers, couples and families. (Sorry no dogs or campervans are allowed on the campsite).
Poppy Patch is our tent camping field with everything you need for a great memorable holiday. Each pitch is separated by long grass and hedgerows to the side. They have beautiful views across the fields. There are only 6 pitches, no over crowding. Pitches are not allocated, just turn up and find your space to set up home, then sit back, light the fire and relax. There is a wooden climbing frame and lots of space for children to play safely as no cars are allowed on site. Take a wander around the fields, through Twitty Song Meadow and down to the stream, where you will find dragonflies, butterflies and the tiniest frogs you'll ever meet. A wonderful space to run free and enjoy all the wonders of simple natural camping.
Twitty Song Meadow
Twitty Song Meadow was aptly named by our youngest daughter, who loves to hear the ‘twitty songs' every morning when she camps. One might struggle to find another Twitty Song Meadow, so free marshmallows to anyone who knows of one! This year Twitty Song Meadow will be home to large and deluxe camping pitches but still open to all campers to explore, in low season you may meet some friendly sheep and alpacas grazing in there. A wonderful space to run free and enjoy all the wonders of 'back-to-nature' camping. If you love the simplicity of camping but you would like the luxury of comfy beds and a log burner, do have a look at our glamping options available for summer.
There is a parking area for cars as you enter the campsite and carts available to transport your bags and tents to the pitches. It isn’t far, maybe 30m-50m walk across level ground.
You can enjoy a fabulous locally-sourced breakfast Café Barn. On our pop-up pizza nights, you can make your own pizza and watch it cook in our wood-fired pizza oven.
We believe camping is not the same without a campfire. We hire out fire pits and BBQ racks, and we sell logs and kindling to make your stay even more memorable.
Hot Showers & Flushing Toilets
The wooden shower block has lovely hot showers, flushing toilets and sinks to wash up with a view. There is a washing line and wetsuit drying rack.
Each of the large pitches come with their own picnic table, perfect for meals with friends and family. Unwind, relax and enjoy sitting around the campfire toasting marshmallows.
Electric Free Campsite
Back-to-nature, no gadgets, no music. Plenty of time to read a book and chat around the campfire. There are USB sockets available at the Café Barn for charging phones.
We now only have 6 tent pitches in Poppy Patch and 4 larger and deluxe pitches in Twitty Meadow available; so don’t delay, book early!
The pitches will have their own picnic table and fire pits with a BBQ rack that are available to hire. Strawfields is a simple natural campsite, the tent pitches DO NOT have electricity, but there are sockets to recharge mobile phones and a communal freezer available for freezing ice blocks at the Café Barn.
Sorry no group bookings (maximum of two pitches or huts allowed with friends or family). Please note that Strawfields is now a dog-free campsite due to our ever expanding menagerie of animals.
No dogs at anytime on the campsite.
