Festival nights with river by day!
Wild Canvas is absolutely beautiful. We loved the location and the river was blissful- the whole family loved the wild swimming and the splashing about.
The bar and music were great too- such a lovely atmosphere.
There were a great variety of workshops and activities and we really enjoyed those we got involved in. Disco pilates and family yoga/sound bath were highlights of our whole visit. But some of the activities priced a bit high especially if you have multiple children.
The food offering was also a bit of a let down- the main meals were tasty enough and a great variety but weren't really as they were described- 'rotisserie' chicken and hog roast were just bits of bbqd meat. The orders were wrong a few times too. However our main issue was breakfast- the coffee was really overpriced for weak, half cups of foam and the 'pastries' were being unwrapped from Tesco long life plastic wrappers in front of the queue- really disappointing. Perhaps a new caterer should be looked at for next year.
There were a couple of organisational things we found frustrating too- the system of wheelbarrows or pay for a lift in the golf buggy is a good idea but there aren't many wheelbarrows and we got forgotten when we asked for the lift- we waited over an hour on checkout day and never got acknowledged. It was a sad end to an otherwise beautiful time.
Overall, we loved the experience- it's a beautiful escape with fun and chill in equal parts, just expect to pay a bit on top of the booking!

Such a beautiful site, with an amazing vibe. Space for gentle ‘adult fun’, and lots of activities for children.
The campsite was full, but didn’t feel crowded at all…

Wild Camping in Bedfordshire
I have already recommended this to friends. A lovely surrounding and set up, which attracted seemingly lovely people and families. It felt like we’d stumbled onto a bit of a gem. Thanks so much for putting this all together and for a wonderful weekend. So lovely this exists. Very well done.

This is a really interesting idea - mixing up camping with just a hint of festival - adding a touch of spice to the whole thing. Access to the river was a brilliant bonus. Site was clean and well spaced out. Facilities just about enough. I'd definitely go again - hope they come back to the Turvey site next year.

We had a great time at Wild Canvas Camping this summer. We camped with our two children (4 & 7), who loved the open space, the wild swimming and all the activities. There was something for the adults too. Would highly recommend the stand up paddle boarding and pizza at the Luna cafe. Really chilled out atmosphere, very safe and kept tidy and clean throughout our stay.
Arrived on my first ever camping trip with my mum and 6 year old daughter. I LOVED this place. So friendly, clean, best pizza I’ve ever eaten. If they do the same next year, we’re in!!!!
