- Single gypsy caravan on a quiet llama farm
- In a wildlife haven and remote location
- Exclusive use of wetroom with shower, loo and hot water
Love llamas? Us too. And so do the peeps of Catanger Llama Farm near Towcester – they have a whole herd. Want to stay among them? Read on...
There's only one pitch at this most peaceful and scenic site, a gypsy caravan set among acres of quiet countryside surrounded by nature and wildlife. And llamas: the farm herd hangs out in the adjoining field.
The caravan looks a bit like a shepherd's hut from the outside, but has lots of comforts and essentials inside like a picnic table with chairs, crockery and cutlery, solar lighting, basic cooking utensils for campfire cooking and a comfy pull-out double bed and two camp beds for kids (please note that the caravan is only suitable for two adults and up to two children under 12 years old, and that it's accessible via a 300-metre walk from the visitor centre along a mown pathway. Wellies are a good idea as the caravan and footpath are all on mown grass and this can be wet with dew in the mornings.)
All fully insulated, the caravan has a covered balcony with views over the Tove Valley as well as views over llamas, and a rear window looking out over twenty acres of native woodland to spot deer, hares, rabbits, badgers, foxes and many many birds. Car parking is next to the visitor centre, where you'll have exclusive use of the wetroom and utility room throughout your stay.
The caravan doesn't have ensuite, but guests have exclusive use of the wetroom in the Catanger Visitor Centre, with shower, toilet, washbasin and hot water. They can also use the utility room with tea and coffee making facilities and for washing up.
A covered cooking station with gas grill and double burner cooker is next to the caravan, but if you don't fancy cooking several local village pubs are in the vicinity serving lunches and evening meals.
And as well as meeting the llamas (especially the new mums and crias in summer), animal-loving guests can also get to know Feather the rescue pony, Flosi the Icelandic horse and the farm dogs Flora, Huey and Archie. Well-behaved dogs are welcome at Catanger but not allowed in the caravan please – however, if you're dogless in llamaland, Flora and co will come and find you.

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.

Catager is just outside the village of Lois Weedon on the Wappeham road. Look for the sign in the gateway and follow the drive down to the buildings.
On the M40:
Exit at junction 11 for Banbury and take the A422 towards Brackley for approximately 1 mile. At the roundabout at the top of the hill turn left onto the B4525. Continue for another 3 miles and take the left turn signposted Thorpe Mandeville. Follow this road for another 3 miles to the Cultworth/Weston crossroads. Turn right to Weston. Drive through Weston and Lois Weedon.
As you leave Lois Weedon you will see two farm drives on your right followed by a sharp right-hand bend with a lodge house on the right. We are the second field on the left from the bend. Look for the sign, follow the drive down to the buildings.
On the M1:
Exit junction 15a and take the A43 towards Oxford. At Towcester follow the ringroad to the south and at the last roundabout (McDonald’s) take a right turn signposted Abthorpe and Wappenham. Drive through Abthorpe and onto Wappenham and in the middle of the village turn right signposted Lois Weedon and Weston. Catanger is about 2 miles from Wappenham and is on your right just before you reach Lois Weedon (often named Weedon Lois!). Look out for the sign at the gate and follow the drive down to the buildings.
Catanger Llama Farm is on the Northamptonshire/Oxfordshire border, so has much to see and do: take your pick from historic houses, old churches, gardens, waterways, forest walks and sporting facilities. Antique and farm shops, horse racing and Silverstone Circuit are all within a few miles.
Otherwise, use the farm as a base for exploring this part of the lland: Althorp, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Oxford and the Cotswolds are all less than an hour away.
