Elm Cottage Camping is a small site adjacent to both our home, Elm Cottage, and our neighbours in Holly Cottage. It is located on a working farm just outside Bourton on the Water wtih spectacular views of the village and the Windrush Valley.
Our very small pitch fee (£5 per person per night) reflects the fact that there are no facilities dedicated to the site; guests are free to use our downstairs loo and we have a sink for washing up. There is an excellent leisure centre in the village where, for the price of a swim, you can use their hot showers.
We produce our own beef on the farm (www.lovemycow.com) and it is available for you to purchase direct from us, our award winning burgers are definitely worth a try! We have a bucket barbeque you can borrow, as well as a Kotlich (www.outdoor-kitchen.biz) should you feel adventurous!
As we have two small dogs we would ask that you leave yours at home please. In addition, in order to respect both us and our neighbours (who all enjoy the peace and quiet) it is an adult only site -if you are looking for somewhere for some late night revelry this is definitely NOT the right place!

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

We are located just outside Bourton on the Water, on the road to Clapton and Sherborne. Using our postcode, GL54 2LF will bring you to a junction by some farm buildings, not far from us but not quite there! The best thing to do is to contact us in advance to get directions depending on where you are coming from.
Bourton on the Water is a ten minute walk away - downhill on the way back which means uphill on the way back! Pubs, restaurants and tea rooms are in plentiful supply as well as various visitor attractions such as the Motor Museum, Birdland and the Cotswold Perfumery.
There are excellent bus links should you wish to go further afield as well as plenty of local footpaths to explore the countryside.
