Stowford Manor Farm Campsite

51 units · Glamping, Motorhomes25 acres · Trowbridge, England
We are a family run farm situated in the beautiful Frome valley. The farm has a range of interests from the traditional Jersey milking cows to a community of workshops used by local craftsmen. The cafe serves cream teas from Easter to the end of September and pizzas are sold in evenings during the summer months. Ours is a small family run camp site with the River Frome on one side, next to the medieval buildings of Stowford Farm. The river is suitable for fishing, boating, swimming and paddling. Historic Bradford-on-Avon is only a 5 minute drive and the City of Bath 15 minutes. For those who enjoy more rural pleasures, 200 metres from the campsite Farleigh Hungerford boasts the only river swimming club in the country, and you can become an instant member for a very small fee.

Gurt Yurts

3 units · Glamping, Tents4 acres · Churchill, England
Off the beaten track on top of the Mendips in an area of outstanding natural beauty. A mixture of four acres of wild woodland, orchard and field set on a hillside. Our Yurt is set up in the trees giving you peaceful seclusion and a clear view across the sea to Wales and the mountains of the Brecon Beacons. A huge range of activities are possible or you can lie in the hammock with a good book. We have very friendly dogs and rescue chickens who may come and visit. Wild deer wander past in the early morning mist and the odd buzzard picks an argument with a bunch of crows but nothing much else should disturb you. We moved here after an 18 month search 8 years ago. It was close to everything we wanted and we've spent some time getting a bit closer.

Campsites with fishing in River Avon guide

Overview

From the grassy banks of the Wiltshire countryside to the urban riverbanks of Bath and Bristol, the River Avon is witness to some of South West England’s most impressive scenery. Whether you choose to set sail on a sightseeing cruise, navigate its canal ways on a narrowboat, or pitch your tent by the riverside, there’s plenty to explore along the river. In Wiltshire, escape the crowds for tranquil waterfront walks or bike rides, and stop by the mediaeval village of Lacock. Further west, the UNESCO city of Bath and Bristol both have iconic bridges spanning the river—the Pulteney Bridge and the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

When to go

Summer (June through August) is the best time to get on the water, and events and festivals are often held along the riverfronts in Bath and Bristol. Boat tours and cruises typically run from mid-March to mid-October, although winter visits are still possible for private groups. Many campsites stay open year-round, but be sure to check for seasonal closures.

Know before you go

  • The River Avon (or Bristol Avon) rises in South Gloucestershire and flows through Wiltshire, Bath, and Bristol, before connecting to the Kennet and Avon Canal and the Kennet Navigation. 
  • Sightseeing cruises or multi-day boat cruises along the River Avon are possible from Bath and Bristol. 
  • Most campsites in South West England require advance booking, and you may need to pay the full amount before arrival.
