Pitchcott Farm

11 units · Glamping, Motorhomes, Tents15 acres · Aylesbury, England
Pitchcott Farm is set among the rolling hills of the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside. The farm is a total of 150 acres and campers have access to a 15 acre meadow with vibrant wild flowers in spring and summer. The farm prioritises the protection and expansion of biodiversity so camping pitches are limited to retain the wild nature of the site. Look out for wild deer in the meadow, and you might hear the hoot of owls at night.

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.

Glamping in Savernake Forest with horseback riding guide

Overview

Towering beech trees, ancient oaks, and twisted roots provide a dramatic backdrop for woodland walks in Savernake Forest. Enjoy nature walks or leisurely bike rides along the tree-lined trails, venture off-road to explore the wooded glades, then find a shady picnic spot beneath the trees. Highlights include Capability Brown’s Grand Avenue, the bluebell woods at Little Frith, and the Big Bellied Oak, one of the country’s oldest trees. There’s no camping in the forest itself, but there is a campsite right by the northern entrance, where you can pitch your tent or park your caravan within strolling distance of the forest trails.

When to go

These woodlands are photo-ready at any time of year. Visit in spring when bluebells and wildflowers blanket the forest floor, or in fall when the autumn leaves transform the trees into a sea of red, yellow, and orange. Summer (July-Aug) weekends can get busy—make an early start to avoid the crowds and snag a picnic bench. The trails can get muddy when it rains, so wellies or hiking boots are a good idea.

Know before you go

  • Savernake Forest is located about a 10-minute drive south of Marlborough along the A346. The main entrance is at Postern Hill at the northwest end of the park, where free parking is available.
  • There is no entrance fee to visit the forest.
  • The forest has picnic and barbecue areas, and restrooms (open from Easter through October only). There are no other facilities within the park, so bring everything you need with you. 
  • There are some paved paths in the forest that are accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
