- Simple, rural wild camping next to a nature reserve near Northampton
- A 25-minute drive to Silverstone Circuit; Blenheim Palace 45 minutes
- Grass pitches on a livestock farm; pubs and shops 10 minutes’ walk
A secluded wild camping spot on a Northamptonshire working livestock farm Flax Farland is really getting back to basics. There are no facilities here, just a peaceful field sheltered by mature trees, with little to disturb you except the calls of the wildlife and the farm’s cattle, sheep and goats grazing nearby.
You’ll need to come prepared, with drinking water, a torch for moving around at night and stuff for the barbecue. Handily enough, in Hinton village (10 minutes’ walk) there’s a café and several takeaway options, including Indian, Chinese or fish and chips, as well as a pub and a store to pick up any bits and bobs you may need back at base.
Once you’re settled on site, you can get out into the countryside and explore on foot. Woodford Halse Nature Reserve (10 minutes’ walk) is a six-acre park known for its birdlife, so keep your eyes peeled for linnets and bullfinches flitting about in the trees.
Other hiking hotspots include the long-distance Jurassic Way (half an hour’s drive) meandering along a ridgeway between Banbury and Stamford. There’s golf (15 minutes) and fishing (20 minutes) to keep you busy in the fresh air too.
Open from 14/09/2021 to 31/10/2021

Combine some good old English heritage with your exercise and head to National Trust-owned Canons Ashby House (10 minutes’ drive) for a potter through Elizabethan rooms or a walk in landscaped parkland. Majestic, 18th-century Blenheim Palace has guided buggy tours of the Capability Brown-designed gardens, and if you’ve built up a thirst exploring, there are plenty of tempting pubs and tearooms in pretty Woodstock (both 45 minutes).
For a real dose of culture, take in a play at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in beautiful, riverside Stratford-upon-Avon (45 minutes) – or get down with the students in Oxford’s (55 minutes) mellow-stone colleges. While you’re there, you might like to admire the ancient treasures in the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology or tour the Harry Potter film locations.
If you’ve got the kids in tow, treat them to immersive driving games at Silverstone Interactive Museum (25 minutes) or wear out teens on the quad bikes and karting track at Whilton Mill Karting and Outdoor Activities (25 minutes).
