This campground/park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Family-friendly getaways on a peaceful Cotswolds farm
  • A mile from Bourton-on-the-Water; Cirencester 25 minutes' drive
  • Windrush Valley views; spacious communal kitchen and chillout space

Fond of wildflowers? Of course you are, and nothing says peak countryside quite like daisies and poppies popping up among wood-clad pods…

That comely country scene is exactly what's in store at The Wildings Campsite, a family-friendly holiday spot on a peaceful Cotswolds farm. Set at the top of a valley a mile outside of Bourton-on-the-Water, this place has a small number of accommodation options with access to heated toilets, hot showers and a handy communal kitchen and chillout zone.

A woodland garden has been planted around the units, with long grass giving plenty of shelter to visiting bugs and birds. The kids will have plenty of options here, with opportunities for whizzing around site, exploring the grounds or sliding around at the play area. If you'd rather head indoors, the cook house has ample space for food prep (provisions can be picked up a mile away in Bourton-on-the-Water), plus board games and a collection of books.

Handily, this site has both a café and farm shop for drinks, snacks and tasty local produce.

Lovely surroundings & accommodation options. Will definitely be back11/12/2022

  • Liked: 

    Lovely surroundings and very peaceful. You are close enough to the local village for shops and walks but at the same time out in the countryside. The location definitely helped us escape the fireworks with our dog.
    The pods are lovely and spacious with a little garden area out the front. Parking is away from the accommodation, which wasn't a problem and quite nice not to be woken by car doors slamming.

    Welcome additions :
    The farm shop
    Fully equipped indoor kitchen
    Ability to hire bedding, firepits, bundles or the bbq huts (which looked very cozy)
    Very friendly, helpful owners

    Liked the variety of accommodation options and the separate pitches laid out. The shop was wonderful (though we were only there one night so didn't need anything). The kitchen is a brilliant idea, easily make a coffee or microwave something. Games for families in there, books to borrow. The yurt was wonderful. We used the firepit to make our supper and then sat in with the log burner - really cosy. Beautiful dark sky - stars were amazing. Only a 1 mile walk down a country lane into Bourton on the Water (take torches/hi viz if at night) where there are plenty of cafes and restaurants. Good that you park and carry your belongings to your accommodation (no annoying car doors slamming in the mornings!) Notices in the kitchen that you can book massage and various other treatments with the owner too - such a nice idea. The BBQ hut looked wonderful (can hire it, seats about 12). Very friendly owner who's rightly proud of what he's set up there.

    Disliked: 

    I appreciate that the emphasis is on green energy and eco everything but I would have liked a little bit of light as you approached the toilet block. A low emission PIR light perhaps? Only needs to be quite dim - or perhaps I need to go to Specsavers!

    Loved it. It was so peaceful and the surroundings were beautiful and so much to do within a short drive. Our pod had plenty of room. And we had a fire pit and cooking tripod and let’s just say bacon sausages and eggs taste so much better when purchased locally and cooked outside. I would highly recommend the Wildings. And let’s not forget about their shop. Omg super tasty local produce. And the milk, I’ve never tasted milk that fresh. I’m pretty sure it went mooooo when I took off the lid lol. Thank you so much. You made our stay perfect.

Local attractions

There's a solid selection of activities to get stuck into down the hill in Bourton-on-the-Water (20 minutes' walk/five minutes' drive) – between the model village, the twittering creatures at Birdland, a maize maze, a model railway and the Cotswold Brewing Company's tasty ales, you shouldn't find yourself short of outings for a range of budgets and tastes.

Also five minutes away is Greystone Farm Nature Reserve, an attractive spot for gentle country rambles. Wardens Way (10 minutes' drive) is where walks on a grander scale can be embarked upon, with 14 miles of waymarked trails to tread. Setting off from the village of Lower Slaughter (10 minutes) is probably your best bet – here there's also the Old Mill Museum and a historic church to admire en route.

Venturing a little further away also brings rewards. Cirencester (25 minutes) is the place to be if you're one to watch horses tearing up turf at a polo match, but there's also a lido, water park, Roman history museum and arts centre to poke your nose into. Cheltenham (30 minutes), which is full of fancy architecture, is also within reach.

Must see

  • Cotswold Farm Park (8.9 kilometres)
  • Chastleton House (13.1 kilometres)
  • Sudeley Castle Gardens and Exhibition (15.0 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Lodge Park and Sherborne Estate (7.5 kilometres)
