Overview
More
Peaceful, tranquil and unspoilt green camping with superb views. A night or more at Thistledown gives you much more than just a campsite. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty lies Thistledown Farm: 4 miles of maintained paths and sculpture trails wind their way through 70 acres of meadow, pasture and woodland. Educational boards around the site provide information on a host of environmental and agricultural subjects. Friendly pigs, goats and cattle are always happy to greet visitors. Fire pits are provided and wood is available to be bought. Numbers are strictly limited and booking is essential - please see our website for online booking.

This is deservedly a very popular plac, drawing locals from all directions. Food and atmosphere are really good, genuine and well balanced. For eating, book in advance, not to be disappointed.

The previous reviews say it all, the stunning countryside, the low-density camping and the outstanding cafe. We’ll be back for sure. Thank you Thistledown for a fabulous weekend.
