General

  • Quiet and simple site with Cotswolds views and holistic retreat centre
  • Two minutes' drive to pub with food in Whichford
  • Half an hour to Stratford and an hour to 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 on this site 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, radios, sound systems, one-man bands, male voice choirs and the like should keep it switched off. But the site do offer WiFi in their camping kitchen.

The owners probably don’t mind you humming a tune as you build your campfire though, and there are spots for that all round this secluded site for cooking on or toasting your toes or gazing into the flames. 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 grub (or grubbe) in Whichford a two-minute drive or a 15-minute walk away; for supermarkets and supplies, it’s 20 minutes to Banbury.

    The campsite was peaceful and had a good atmosphere. The toilets, showers and kitchen were quite good.

    Disliked: 

    The infamous church bells... I can attest that they do indeed ring every 15 minutes day and night. I wouldn't say that they are loud enough to wake you up if you happen to be asleep. However, I tend to spend a lot of the night awake at the best of times, so they bothered me to the degree that I would not consider going back.

    Would have been helpful to have pitches marked out as by the time I arrived people had spread out and there was nowhere level to put my van.
    I had to park where there was a sign saying don't park.

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.

Must see
