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 ( 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 ( 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!
