Camping in the Great British outdoors - the romance of getting back to nature, breathtaking countryside, songs around the campfire, starlit walks, and jolly japes on endless sunny days! The reality however is often very different, soul destroying tinned or dehydrated meat, deflating airbeds, damp sleeping bags and permafrost on your toes - in summer! Well now there’s an alternative... Welcome to Jollydays, where we believe there's no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate camping facilities. Out go nylon sleeping bags and in come four poster beds, chandeliers and sofas by the fire.
Our camp has no permanent structures, and other than the odd wooden pole (and the buried bio digester dealing with effluent off-grid) nothing is attached into the ground, ensuring we tread lightly. We have up to 22 tents at present: 7 deluxe tents, 8 luxury lodge tents and 7 bell tents. Book and turn up for a night, a few days, a week or longer, just bring suitable clothes and that’s it! No other packing. No hassle and set up, just turn up.

Our camp attracts many people, couples, families, reunions, walkers, non campers, and young and old. If you just want to escape and get away from it all, have a reunion or celebrate a special event (or just life), Jollydays offers all this in a beautiful location. Experience nature in all her seasons as the camp is open most of the year. We use minimal electricity and an increasing proportion of our energy usage is sustainable. We do however use LPG gas to heat water (which is more energy efficient than electricity). Spent water is sent to a bio digester or reed beds and then released into the ground on site. Jollydays is a member of the Green Tourism Business Scheme, the only certification scheme validated by Visit Britain, through the International Centre for Responsible Tourism.
