General

  • Pop-up glamping by a renowned trout lake in Hampshire’s Itchen Valley
  • A 15-minute drive to Winchester; 50 minutes to the Isle of Wight ferry
  • Luxury bell tents, angling, pizzas and bar plus wellness sessions

Set around the lakes of a trout fishery, Avington Glamping welcomes all comers to a lovely pocket of Hampshire, incorporating waterside serenity and wild swimming. With the clearwater lakes and a burbling chalk stream, this is a secluded and peaceful spot to relax and reconnect with nature.

The renowned Avington fishery – known for its natural beauty and colossal trout – more than covers all your glamping needs, from a luxuriously decked out and proper posh bell tent to your own barbecue or gas stove (both have a small charge).

Keen anglers can book fishing lessons, or you might like to hire a paddleboard or kayak to get out on the water. You’re welcome to join wellness and meditation sessions, and up the relaxation factor to new heights with daily yoga classes.

Upmarket, on-site catering will shorten your daily to-do list as well. Order Neapolitan pizzas from the wood-fired oven (on Fridays) or grill a trout freshly caught from the lake – and there’s a little pub on site too. After all, it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere.

And as this is England, if there is the odd rainy day, kids can be kept entertained by film nights as well as loads of games and toys in the clubhouse.

Finally, a couple of house rules: no pets are allowed on the campsite due to the large amount of wildlife around, and as the pitches are right next to the lake, adults are fully responsible for their kids’ safety.

Stunning site, superb facilities and amazing staff 💕08/02/2021

  • Liked: 

    Really stunning site and the glamping set up only complimented it all. Great facilities and the warmest welcome. All the gang running it were great, couldn’t be more helpful. And all the food we bought from there was super delish. Highly recommend pizza night and the yoga. We ordered a butcher box for our own bbq, which was great too. Unfortunately we didn’t go swimming but next time I will for sure, the lake is pristine and has beautiful clear water.

    Disliked: 

    Only very slight critique is to have the facilities a bit closer to the glamping lake, as it’s quite a walk with either all your washing up, or all your bits for a shower etc. But if you manage to catch the team with the trailer or golf buggy, they will give you a lift if possible 👍

Ancient Winchester (15 minutes) is steeped in history; history buffs can tour the Gothic cathedral and the Old Bishop’s Palace before following the Itchen river to the restored Winchester City Mill for interactive exhibits, flour-milling displays and the chance to spot otters in the river.
