Aylesmore Farm Campsite: Visitor image of sunset on site

General

  • Simple family-friendly site with eco values and countryside views
  • A 25-minute drive to Stratford-upon-Avon and Chastleton House
  • A short walk or drive from pubs and shops

Pining for a family-friendly break that includes ample time for rural relaxing, but also the chance to get to grips with Shakespeare’s hometown? In a countryside setting 25 minutes’ drive away from Stratford-upon-Avon, Aylesmore Farm Campsite is exactly the spot to escape the rush and come and listen to the birdsong for a few days…

Family-run and family-friendly, the emphasis here is upon being low impact on the local area. This means that the facilities have been kept simple, with just composting toilets and basic cold water washing-up facilities (and don’t expect the grass to be cut short either).

The eco site has spectacular views over the surrounding farmland, so you may want to take in the views over a barbecue. Shipston-on-Stour, the local market town 10 minutes’ drive from the site, also has plenty of pubs and restaurants for all different tastebuds – and it’s fondly known as ‘the gateway to the Cotswolds’. The site is also within walking distance of pubs, a village shop, a bakery and a butcher's.

When you’re not making new friends with the other guests or exploring the local countryside, make your way to Stratford-upon-Avon. Here you can take a ghost or Shakespeare tour, visit Shakespeare’s own haunts, catch a theatre show or row a boat down the river Avon.

    Lovely communicative owners who gave clear instructions so we didn’t get lost. The location was great being only an hour away from where we live. Very clean and lots of options of where to pitch our tent. The toilets were great in comparison to what I’ve experienced in the past. No noise issues and an overall good time!

    -The VIEW! Amazing sunsets across the valley.
    -Off-grid campsite - no frills but perfectly adequate for a night or two
    -Great communication from host
    - We thought the ‘leave-no-trace’ ethos was a really nice touch. No bins meaning we are all responsible for taking our rubbish home and disposing of everything properly.
    - Compost toilets & wash basin (all clean and tidy!)
    - Kitchen Sink
    - Small selection of kids toys (useful!)
    - other campers seemed friendly and polite, there was a mix of ages on-site which we thought really added to our experience. No noise after 9pm which was perfect.

    Disliked: 

    I don’t think it’s fair to say a dislike because I knew what we were getting into with off-grid camping so we were well prepared, but a couple of things could be added to make the experience a little safer, especially as a family with very young kids.

    - a pile of bricks for people to use as props for bbq’s (less fire risk!) also, buckets to hand by the kitchen sink for water just in case there is a need to extinguish a bbq.
    - maybe some rustic benches or some sort of communal seating area for meals, sawn up logs seating etc all useful for DIY camping
    - I know this is being addressed but different locks on the toilets (my 4 year old was delighted that he could see the view while on the throne!) but for others perhaps this would be distracting.

    I hope this feedback is useful, these things in no way hampered our experience, just my own thoughts on little touches based on off grid camping we’ve done elsewhere. I believe people should themselves be prepared for wild camping and off grid experiences before they arrive and do their research on what they need to pack (rather than arriving and feeling disappointed that their needs aren’t being catered for!)

From the manager...

Thanks so much Katherine, that’s really helpful feedback and all quite doable! There are a few picnic benches up there which I should maybe be clearer about- we’re really happy for people to move them where-ever they like- but sone logs are a good idea. Buckets and bricks also great ideas, thank you, that should be an easy fix. We only opened in May so it’s all new and we’re always looking to learn!

    Absolutely beautiful sunset views over distant hills and fields, and long grass around the pitches, eco friendly compost toilets and clean running water. We stayed in a converted van and tent with 4 young children for a few days, who loved the space of the fields to run and play on within clear views of the pitch. We spent the evenings with open fire in fire pit enjoying the stars, days we’re enjoying watching the children playing freely in the open. We loved the semi wild set up and privacy given by the owners 🙏 definitely will be coming back 💯 %

    Nothing to dislike, simple raw camping, ideal for tents and vans,

    The views were really good, the location is good. Toilets were clean and green.

    Disliked: 

    Entrance has a nasty dip that a van can just about make without scraping the bottom, Motorhome a no go, this should be mentioned. No pitches are marked out and was fairly busy so people pitched all over the place. Unsure why the grass cant be cut into some marked pitches. The site is well over priced, only offering a compost toilet and cold water sinks for £24, the rest is wild camping really. We stayed following night in a site with electric hook up and well maintained pitches with similar facilities for £17. I guess its down to preference but I would rather have value for money and not our kind of site at all.

From the manager...

Hello! I’m so sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay, it sounds like our site was not at all what you were looking for and we were rather a bad match!

You were sent a welcome WhatsApp message with all the details and directions etc which delivered but I can see now, is still unread, so that is something for us to be aware of for future visitors! Our reception is terrible and WhatsApp is generally the most reliable means of communication but clearly failed here.
We have had no trouble with campervans/motor homes accessing the site and often stay there in our own but will certainly take your comment into consideration.
Perhaps it is unclear on the website that what we offer is a basic, wild camping experience, rather than a more formal site, I will have a read through for anything misleading, we very much want people to be happy when they arrive and expectations are a big part of that.
With regard to child friendliness, we do try hard since our own kids spend a lot of time there, so any ideas of improving this would be gratefully received.

Thanks so much for your feedback and all the best for happier camps in the future!

    What a wonderful experience for our first time camping. We have two young children and a baby so wanted to try somewhere fairly close to home. This site did not disappoint, kids loved roaming the fields and the views are incredible. The toilet facilities and washing up area were a nice wild camping touch. We were pleasantly surprised at the idea of the compostable toilet too! A very peaceful and beautiful stay. An added bonus that we were out for the final supermoon of 2022. Fully recharged for the rest of the summer holidays!

Local attractions

After visiting Sezincote House & Garden, you might be ready to compose your own sonnet declaring your fondness of the Mogul Indian palace (25 minutes’ drive). It’s one of a handful of gorgeous historical sites a short drive away from the site…

A grand day out indeed can be had at the Jacobean country house of Chastleton House (25 minutes) or the arts and crafts garden of Hidcote (25 minutes). Nab a spot on a guided tour around Broughton Castle (20 minutes) too, a fortified manor house with a moat and Great Hall.

The Rollright Stones (15 minutes), made from the Jurassic oolitic limestone of the Cotswolds, have been around since the Bronze age and Neolithic period. That’s one last historic site before you return to the present, perhaps with a visit to the All Things Wild (half an hour) zoo or Fairytale Farm’s playgrounds, petting zoo and fairytale-themed gardens (20 minutes).

As for a peaceful stroll indeed with nothing to distract you but gorgeous flowers from all corners of the world, get that at the 56-acre Batsford Arboretum and Garden Centre (25 minutes).

Must see

  • Compton Verney (11.5 kilometres)
  • Hidcote Manor Garden (National Trust) (13.3 kilometres)
