Dagger Wood Campsite: Pitches

General

  • Secluded 34-acre farm within half-hour’s drive of Bristol and Bath
  • Owners donate 10% of their booking proceeds to the Woodland Trust
  • Airport and festival pickup available; barbecues and firepits allowed

Choose your own pitch at the 34-acre Dagger Wood Campsite and donate to charity at the same time – this park on a family farm in Clutton, half an hour’s drive from both Bristol and Bath, gives 10% of the proceeds from each booking to the Woodland Trust.

The money generated goes towards tackling climate change and helping plant over 30,000 more trees per year, which is pretty fitting considering the site sits among lots of leafy greenery. Eye it all up from the seating areas and picnic benches or while settling down by one of the firepits.

Barbecues are permitted at this dog-friendly park as well, so get the blaze going and plonk yourself down for alfresco eats. If cooking is a no-no when you’re on a hol, wander 10 minutes through woodland to a pub serving meals.

After other activities besides ambling? The team here also run outdoor pursuits such as wild food foraging workshops and fitness bootcamps (additional fees apply). The farm also has a livery yard, with experienced horse-riding instructors on hand for lessons, and if you’d prefer a ride on a tractor then your wish is the owners’ command.

The amenities at this site may be limited (two cold open-air showers, two portable toilets and fresh running water), but the friendly father and son team will pull out all the stops to make yours a comfortable stay. As the site is large, with various levels of uneven ground and hills, they can also lend a hand if mobility is an issue.

A complimentary minibus service is available to shuttle guests to and from Bristol airport, as well as nearby festivals including Glastonbury. If you’re leaving the car at home, the nearest bus stop is a short walk down the road and public transport runs to Bristol’s centre and Glastonbury.

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Group bookings of 8 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Single-sex bookings of 8 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

The toilet facilities are closed until Monday 17 May 2021. Guests will need to use their own facilities.

  • Liked: 

    Quiet lovely site, pitches are far enough apart that you feel like you're the only people on site. Great views and plenty of space and fallen trees for foraging for firewood. We had the best couple of nights here.

    Disliked: 

    We were fine with it but beware of the massive hill from the car park, single portaloo and cold showers

From the manager...

Happy to hear you had a nice stay with us last year in October! Thank you so much for the kind words, we look forward to seeing you hopefully sometime this year Chelsea.

    Henry was very helpful with excellent communication.
    The site is spacious with wild areas that we liked, but it also has very clean toilets & shower area for a less wild experience should you want that.
    Really good vibes - well run site. Good local pub grub too.

    Quirky little Frodo the cute little bed on wheels. Felt a little like fairies in the woodland to my daughters. Henry helped redeem my daughters 10th birthday by fulfilling a special request to decorate around the area we were staying with special messages loved ones had sent for her. Loved watching the girls stomp about and be as children should be 😍

Dagger Wood is a brilliant back-to-basics, unregimented site.12/10/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomPatrick A.Mobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    Out in nature, friendly, helpful owners, plenty of wildlife.
    Although you can camp wherever you like, the established pitches are a good size, fairly level and each have a well built fire pit.
    The woodland nature of the place means none of the pitches are in sight of one another and makes for a very peaceful camp.
    While walking around the site we saw deer and pheasant, at night, bats and owls were heard.
    The owners have a trusting attitude, allowing campfires and barbecues, and not limiting number of tents on pitches.
    Good quality drinking water supply, and I've never used a cleaner portaloo in my life!
    Fantastic value for money.

    Disliked: 

    The site is close to some roads which aren't busy or loud by any standard, but it does distract from the otherwise natural environment a bit.
    The previous users of our pitch had taken advantage of the unconstraining rules, leaving some litter and dog poo, and been burning glass and cans in the fire.
    However seeing the great condition of the rest of the site, and meeting the other campers, it seems that kind of inconsideration is thankfully a rarity here!

From the manager...

Thanks for visiting us last autumn Patrick, really happy to read you enjoyed the abundance of nature during your stay.

We are hoping a new pitch we have planned for 2021 will allow campers to experience less noise pollution from the road. And as you've correctly pointed out, that level of inconsiderate behaviour was a rarity last year so hopefully that continues into this year.

    - Loved being able to choose where I could pitch my tent, that really played into the wild camping feel of the site.
    - The toilet, recycling and wash area were clean and functional.
    - Henry (owner) was only a phone call away if needed.
    - Lovely area to explore
    - Absolute bargain price

    Disliked: 

    - Obviously, anywhere near a road you will hear traffic so can't complain about the road noise.

From the manager...

So happy to read you loved your last stay! hopefully this year you can come stay in our new pitch that we think will be experience a lot less noise pollution from the road.

    Plenty to like at this site. Consider it a wild camping spot with open showers (you need a swim suit) and porterloos to use.

    The ground is often uneven in places but you can camp in bushes, trees, little gullys, all over the place, so great for a bit of light bushcraft (tarps, bivi, hammocks), really lots of variety to where you can sleep. There's a few larger, flatter pitches as well if you want to camp in a big tent or a group.

    There's a few activities as well to enjoy such as foraging lessons or boot camp. There's also three hidden gnomes which if you find you get a free nights stay! Took us a while to find the little pests, but great fun exploring. Just need to find out how to get the t-shirt as well 👍

    You can have BBQ and open fire, plenty of space to explore and hide.

    Good location as it's near to Bristol, Bath and cheddar gorge. Plenty of little villages and walks close by as well.

    Disliked: 

    Few downsides that can't be avoided.

    Near a fairly busy road, if you sleep light take ear plugs.

    Next to a Motorcross site, so they can be noisy at times, but not at night.

    The uneven ground was fairly sloping, so difficult to find a comfortable pitch.

    Could maybe do with a little signage from the car park as we didn't really know where we could camp.

From the manager...

Sounds like you enjoyed your adventure to our campsite! thanks for staying.

We will have another area of the campsite ready which is less exposed to the noise pollution from the road this coming season, as well as more signage to help campers find their way around. Thank you for your feedback, fingers crossed we can see you again in 2021.

Bath’s another unmissable urban destination – head to this spot for the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge (half an hour), then wander around Wells, a tiny city home to a cracking cathedral (30 minutes) and the gateway to the Wookey Hole Caves.

If you’re into all things bohemian, drop by Glastonbury too and browse the offbeat boutiques before taking a walk up to Glastonbury Tor for fab views over the countryside (45 minutes).
