  • 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). All rubbish must be taken home, as there are no bins. The eco site has spectacular views over the surrounding farmland, so you may want to take in the views over a barbecue. There is one firepit on site too (no open fires are permitted). 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, and the owners highly recommend a lovely kids-friendly café in Whichford. 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.

Unpowered grass tent, campervan or trailer tent site

Liked: Beautiful view, great location, host was most courteous and communicated well. You get an amazing view and it's extremely quiet and peaceful. 5G signal on EE via my phone's hotspot was good enough to run video calls on. Composting toilets well maintained and decorated. BBQ picnic benches and a fire pit make this a great place to stay with friends. Ideal if you want to be off-grid, with the benefit of the composting toilets.

Liked: 2nd time here! And we've always been lucky to get the futhest corner front plot. Handy as my son loves to run around and there's a little steep bit that you can't camp on kids can run around. The most stunning panoramic views! Sarah is so helpful with whatever you need on the phone/whatapp. Matt comes around to see everyone. He had some beers with us and we had such a laugh! Billion percent we will be back again. I started a trip advisor page for them last year, post on there too if you can! Bump them up! #legends

Disliked: The sun being too hot on Sunday haha 😄 We will bring extra shade next time! 1st to get there last to leave, there's nothing to dislike about this cute spot.

The entrance is rough and stoned; it has a dip. Therefore, vehicles with a low base and delicate classic cars will struggle to get in and may get damaged. Normal cars and campervans can access the site fine.

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).
