Cotswolds Camping: Green pitches with plenty of room

General

  • Quiet and simple site with Cotswolds views and holistic retreat centre
  • Within a couple of minutes' drive from a Whichford pub serving food
  • Half an hour to Stratford and an hour to the Cotswolds Water Park

It’s a proper Cotswolds cracker this one, quiet and friendly with bags of room.

Peace and quiet are the top priorities at Cotswolds Camping, just outside the Gloucestershire village of Whichford, in a substantial spot with a moat in one corner, valley views from another, and woods and the village church on the other side. The team here want visitors to enjoy the full benefits of a stay in deep country; for that reason, groups, dogs and kids under 12 aren't allowed on site, and radios, sound systems, one-man bands, male voice choirs and the like should keep it switched off. (There's wifi in the camping kitchen if you really can't stay switched off.)

The owners probably don’t mind you humming a tune as you build your campfire though, and there are spots for that all around this secluded site. Bundles of firewood are available for sale.

Sharing the site with you and the buzzards is Holycombe Holistic Retreat Centre and its treatments for body and soul from acupuncture and reiki to massage and hypnotherapy. (The wooded hills, mill streams and ancient stone villages of the Cotswolds are of course a therapy of their own…)

There’s a fine olde inn with fine grub in Whichford, a two-minute drive or a 15-minute walk away; for supermarkets and supplies, it’s 20 minutes by car to Banbury.

Lovely rural site, great views and nice and quiet13/09/2021

    Great site, well laid out pitches help it feel a little more private, and there is plenty to choose from. If you like camping near orchards, or water there is something here for you. The site encourages camp fires, providing free fire baskets and bags of hardwood to burn with an honesty box system, which really enhances the experience. There are 3 toilets onsite, 1 conventional and 2 composting which we were pleasantly surprised to find don’t smell too badly at all. The showers are separate, and all is easily accessed for the able bodied.

    Disliked: 

    The site is comprised of different levels, which will become slippery when it rains - this may be a significant factor if you struggle with mobility. Also, the shower block is built out of a large shed, so there is no head height. I’m just over 6’2 and would have had to stoop slightly to get in. Not a major issue but worth noting.

    This campsite must surely be the most idyllic you will find anywhere in the U.K. from the historic moat filled with water and skimmed over in the heat of the evening by insects and birds, to the stone circle which provides a sense of mystery in this secluded spot. The free fire pits and purchasable logs are great to sit around and cook over after a days walking in the surrounding hills and quaint little villages. There are no crying children, radios, generators or anything else to disturb your quiet enjoyment of this gem of a site. The orchard, bursting with a myriad of varieties of apples and pears is a delight. The local pub serves food most days and has a range of local ales and gins amongst their offerings. There is a little coffee shop selling take away beverages, the facilities are clean and the showers are really good. There are static yurts and vans available if you don’t want to carry a tent with you.

    Disliked: 

    Every garden of Eden must have its snake and in this case it’s provided by the local Church. The historic role it played in rural life extended outside of the traditional pastoral care. This church was the village alarm clock waking shepherds and milk maids in the early hours to start work. Now those times are gone and everyone has a multitude of devices to wake them from wrist watches to Alexa but the church is unable to move on, perhaps their diminished role leads them to cling onto any vestiges of power they have over the local community, forcing their way into lives, who knows, but every 15 minutes the church clock strikes 4 times then 8 and 12 times and then on the hour, 16 times and also on the hour the actual time. The church is only 100 yards from the camp site and tents have no walls. The bells could stop at night, but no, all night, every 15 minutes we were woken up. The first night I got no sleep at all. The second night I drank heavily and used ear plugs which are kindly provided by the site, however, I don’t think the church should drive us to drink so very reluctantly and with a heavy heart we won’t be able to stay there again until the issue is resolved. Maybe one day the Church will again try and look after the best interests of its people.

Local attractions

Whether your passion is wildlife or windsurfing, castles or kayaks, there’s a high probability of finding it in the Cotswolds.

Many people visit simply to see the pretty villages featured so often on their TV screens (usually after a fictional murder) and there are fine examples of the kind at Shipston-on-Stour (10 minutes’ drive), Chipping Camden and Bourton-on-the-Water, both within half an hour. The latter are good places to hire bikes and explore the area on the numerous cycle trails too.

Walkers are well supplied here, with the mighty Macmillan Way (Lincolnshire to Dorset) passing right by and the Cotswolds Way National Trail beginning in Chipping Camden. You can see a lot by walking 10 to 15 minutes to Whichford Wood, a place teeming with wildflowers and wildlife and a small space you can still lose yourself in; alternatively, lose yourself in the largest collection of trees and plants at Batsford Arboretum (20 minutes).

For things watery, the Cotswolds Water Park is an hour away for kayaking and wetlands nature walks. To see nature of a wilder kind, Cotswolds Wildlife Park (40 minutes) has ferocious and endangered beasts from all over the world, and at Birdland (half an hour) 500 species of feathered things flit about a fab park.

History buffs, head 10 minutes to the ancient Rollright Stones, quarter of an hour to Broughton Castle, or half an hour to the home of the Bard, Stratford-upon-Avon.
