Five-metre bell tent on a wooden deck

General

  • Quiet self-contained glamping site on a farm in Ettington
  • A 15-minute drive from Stratford-upon-Avon
  • Private space with barbecue, hammock, and indoor kitchen and bathroom

A secluded, self-contained glamping area on a small farm – Rookery Retreat is a place for those who hanker after a peaceful slice of rural life.

There’s no need to cart heaps of kit with you, for all is set up ready and waiting at your temporary domain, on the edge of a working cattle farm and livery in the village of Ettington. From here it’s a short leisurely stroll to the local pub and shop (where you can pick up daily supplies of freshly baked bread and other goodies) or to nearby walking trails. If you’d like to venture further afield, Stratford-upon-Avon is 15 minutes away, and the site is less than half an hour from the Cotswolds.

Accommodation is in a spacious bell tent kitted out with a kingsize bed, comfy chairs and a woodburning stove. A few steps away is the woodman’s hut with all amenities: a small kitchen and a bathroom with electric shower and compost toilet.

All this is surrounded by your own personal outdoor area, with a gas barbecue, chiminea and a selection of spots in which to relax. (Which to go for first? The deckchairs, the bench or the hammock – oh, the dilemma.) It’s all fenced off too, so once the gate is closed any dogs you’ve brought along for the ride are welcome to dash about freely.

    We really enjoyed our few day's stay. Hayley was very welcoming and friendly. Enjoyed listening to the owls at night and hedgehogs were making their presence known by morning, did manage to catch them on my wildlife camera. Sitting in front of the fire at night watching the star's come out was just so relaxing. Bed was super comfortable and flap Jack's didn't last long they were yummy. Will be going back. Thank you

    What a fabulous escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A little haven with everything you need to camp in a little luxury. The power shower in the private Woodmans Hut was better than ours at home! Lovely to wake up to the sounds of the horses in the yard and it was so peaceful in the evenings.

    We had the best stay here, just what we needed for a quick weekend away. We took 2 dogs and even tho one is very noisy they both seemed super safe in the little area around the tent!
    All small things were already supplied like pots and kitchen utensils. The homemade flapjack you get on your first day are to die for! We even asked for some more! The little village is lovely and has everything you need for a little weekend away (corner shop and pub).
    The shower and toliet were amazing and much better than any eco toliet we have seen before!
    All in all a lovely stay and we would recommend it to anyone! We hope to be back next year!

    The bed was more comfy than our own at home! Everything that was needed was available from towels and blankets to homemade biscuits and cooking utensils. It was as if my mind were being read. At one point, whilst sitting on the decking outside by the bbq I commented on the fading light. The solar lights then kicked in creating a lovely ambiance. Was a lovely relaxing time.

    Absolutely loved this, it was so relaxing, weather was kind to us and we had everything we needed. Hayley met us and made us very welcome. Nothing was to much trouble. We sat up quite late both nights and enjoyed been outside in such a lovely relaxing place. The beautiful horses around and the walks were lovely. Hayley helped with bus time table and was only a txt away. It is without a doubt that we will be going back. Andrew & Sue.

Directions

Local attractions

Head to Stratford-upon-Avon 15 minutes away by car to follow in the footsteps of the town’s most famed son – there’s all manner of Shakespeare-related attractions over here, including the Shakespeare’s Birthplace museum, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, Mary Arden’s Farm and shows at the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre.

Leaving the Bard behind, drive a few minutes further north (around 20 from the farm) to gawp at gorgeous Warwick Castle, wander around Charlecote Park or see the huge collection of vintage cars at the British Motor Museum. You may be able to catch a meet at Warwick Racecourse; if not, try your luck betting on the sheep races at Hatton Country World (also home to lots of other animals and activities).

There are lots of local walks to be had, but you may also like to stretch your legs a little more wandering through the Cotswolds, half an hour away. Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Moreton-in-Marsh are some of the top spots for a scenic stroll.

Must see

  • Compton Verney (3.8 miles)
  • Royal Shakespeare Theatre (5.4 miles)
