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.

    A lovely hideaway for an autumnal night away in the van; nice, flat, grassy pitches near stone circle. Facilities basic but heated. Wood and fire pit for a great evening under the stars, punctuated every 15 minutes by the parish church clock!!!

  • Liked: 

    Peaceful surroundings, relaxed atmosphere and short walk to lovely local pub

    Disliked: 

    The site was fairly busy during our stay meaning facilities for regular campers were limited.

From the manager...

I'm a bit disappointed by your cleanliness score as we clean all the facilities regularly and have only had good comments over the summer, even from guests who stayed the exact same dates! We are looking to build more showers and toilets soon we just need a good plan in place before we start. Watch this space!

    Disliked: 

    The picnic bench was broken and we could not use fully.
    Maybe it should be replaced?

From the manager...

Thanks for the review and for some great pictures

The picnic bench was swiftly taken down after being broken the week before your stay. It has now been upcycled and should be good for a few more years. We don't like throwing things away... :)

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
