Park Farm Campsite

3 units · Motorhomes, Tents3 acres · Malmesbury, England
Wild Inspired, back to nature camping with a touch of luxury. The campsite is an 3 acre open field surrounded by trees looking out onto an awesome view. We are a working, organic dairy farm. The pitches are large, each with the option to have a campfire (we sell our own wood). We have recently installed some compost loos and some gas showers, we also have a covered washing up area. There are chickens that live next door to the campsite and we have a small honesty shop selling eggs, apple juice, local preserves and other goodies. There are some local woods and footpaths to enjoy walking locally. We have a village pub 3 miles away, just about walkable! We are located on the outskirts only the Cotswold so lots of lovely places to explore further afield.

Campsites near Bath guide

Overview

With elegant Georgian architecture, scenic riverside strolls, and historic monuments everywhere you turn, Bath is deserving of its star attraction status. Prepare to be dazzled as you take in the headline acts—the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey, and Royal Crescent are all show-stoppers—then indulge your romantic side as you visit the Jane Austen Centre or indulge in a traditional afternoon tea. Once you’ve had your culture fix, there are outdoor pleasures to enjoy too. Go punting or canoeing along the River Avon, float over the countryside in a hot air balloon, or enjoy riverside walks and bike rides.

Where to go

North Somerset

Whether you want to hit the beach or explore underground caves, North Somerset has outdoor adventures to suit all tastes. Head to the Mendip Hills AONB to hike through the Cheddar Gorge, explore the Wookey Hole caves, and taste Britain’s beloved Cheddar cheese. Along the coast, seaside resorts like Burham-on-Sea and Weston-Super-Mare have sandy beaches, summer entertainment, and great seafront camping.

Cotswolds

North of Bath, the patchwork hills and winding lanes of the Cotswolds lead the way to some of England’s most picturesque villages. This AONB is the place for celebrity-spotting, scenic walks and bike rides through the countryside, and leisurely pub lunches. Burton, Bourton on Water, and Broadway are some of the most visited towns, where you’ll find plenty of choices for camping and glamping.

North Wessex Downs

Less than an hour’s drive east, the verdant chalklands of the North Wessex Downs AONB are beloved by hikers, cyclists, and horseback riders. Visit the UNESCO-listed Avebury stone circle, enjoy views of the Wiltshire White Horses, or set sail for a cruise along the Kent & Avon Canal. Further east, Downton Abbey fans won’t want to miss a visit to Highclere Castle.

When to go

Bath fills up with day-trippers in summer and during annual events such as the Bath Festival (May) or the Jane Austen Festival (Sept). Make your campsite reservations months in advance if visiting during these periods, and plan an early start to beat the crowds at top attractions. Spring and autumn are ideal for hikes in the surrounding AONBs, and there are options for winter campers, too—Bath is particularly magical over the holiday season.

Know before you go

  • Bath has several camping and outdoors stores where you can pick up everything you need for your camping trip. 
  • Bath has public transport links to many of the surrounding towns and AONBs, but it is handy to have your own transport, especially if staying at rural campsites.
  • Wild camping is illegal throughout the UK, although there are some areas where it is possible with permission from the landowners.
