Camping and glamping on an eco-friendly re-wilded farm on the southern side of the Cotswolds.
With green hills, clear streams, cute villages and country pubs, the Cotswolds has a reputation for being rather lovely. So whether you’re looking for camping or glamping in the area, you’ll no doubt be after somewhere that lives up to that reputation. How about the camping and glamping at Oxwick? Situated on a part re-wilded farm three miles from the market town of Chipping Sodbury, it’s certainly rather lovely. It has just five spacious camping pitches and five lotus belle tents a short walk away from Oxwick’s striking heritage farmhouse. It’s a relatively simple set-up with off-grid pitches, campfires allowed and a composting loo; all eco-friendly but not completely back to basics. There’s a biomass boiler for hot water and a wind turbine on site for power. Both supply The Quad — a communal, open-sided but undercover space for cooking, eating and generally hanging out. It’s mostly used by glampers, but the halogen hobs, fridges and wooden dining tables are open to all and make serving supper easy, whatever the weather. With cooking facilities taken care of elsewhere, the pre-erected lotus belle tents are uncluttered and comfortable sleeping spaces, pitched in the wilder end of the camping field. Each is kitted out with beds, bedding and solar or battery-powered lighting inside, with seating and a fire pit outside for nights under the stars. Grass, which has been left to grow long, separates the bell tents and affords each glamping family, couple or group a little privacy. Camping pitches, meanwhile, are free-form and a short walk away in a mowed area of the field. It’s a short walk back up the drive, which is lined with re-wilded meadows, and over the road to the 700-acre Lower Wood. It’s ancient woodland and grazing land owned by the Avon and Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust; the perfect place for a walk. There are more of those all over the Cotswolds with its honey-stone villages. Lacock and Castle Combe are two of the best and a short drive away. This area has long been regarded as a place for quintessentially English countryside getaways but with a location on the southern side of the Cotswolds, it’s also close enough for day trips to Bath and Bristol. Both are just 30 minutes away, making Cotswold Meadow Camping not just rather lovely, but rather convenient too.

Badger Lamb
Loved our stay here, so peaceful and excellent facilities. Brilliant to have such a well equipped kitchen onsite and a Waitrose just down the road! Made all the more special by Nigel visiting with the orphaned badger lamb who needed feeding.

We loved our night here - it is a lovely site, and the tents are excellent! Really comfy and very well set-up for an easy night away. The facilities are great - we would happily come back! Thank you, Nigel.

Fuss free camping
Nigel & Catherine’s land was a lovely secluded spot for camping. Surrounding trees prevented the tent from getting billowed by the wind. The kitchen area and toilet facilities were clean and had everything we needed. I loved that card wouldn’t drive into the camping area as it felt safe to let the children explore the campsite. However, it wasn’t far to walk from the car park and the wheelbarrows made the trip with our stuff to the pitch easy. Very good value for money. We will be back.

We loved this site! It is small and quiet (a bit of motorway hum in the distance, but not enough to annoy us) and the facilities excellent. The toilet is clean and the shower hot. The Quad is the most useful thing - kettle, toaster, fridge freezer, lots of pans and kitchenware, USB points and comfy sofas with books to read and games to play. We will be back and will be recommending it to everyone.

Great 6 days camping on a beautiful site, full of flowers, birds and bats. The facilities are kept clean and tidy and campers have use of 'the hub', which has everything you could possibly need including a fridge/freezer! (Welcome during the very hot weather we had). A hidden gem, the website doesn't do it justice.
From the host
Nestled in the natural landscape of a striking heritage farmhouse, just outside Chipping Sodbury on a remote site is our little glamping field and rustic events venue.   We put sustainability and the environment at the forefront of everything we do.  Our wind turbine overlooks our 40 acre site, and along with the biomass boiler, it helps us to be a net-zero carbon site, powered solely by renewable energy.  We have a small herd of rare breed Badger Faced sheep to do as much mowing as possible, who also produce a limited supply of our ethical lamb products.  We have set up a small ‘rewilding’ site, a 2 minute walk from the campsite where we are investigating ways to improve biodiversity.This little bit of wilderness is within easy reach of national trails, heritage properties, and lively cities. 
Nearby attractions
The site is just outside the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is a great place to discover on foot, by bike or on horseback. Just a couple of hundred yards from the site entrance is Lower Wood, a 700-acre ancient woodland. If you fancy a proper hike, you can make our way through it to get to The Cotswolds Way National Trail. The market town of Chipping Sodbury is just over three miles from site and has a wealth of cafes and independent businesses while, Yate, just next door, has a few more familiar chains and a cinema. Westonbirt Arboretum is about 10 miles from site and Lacock Abbey and the Fox Talbot Photography Museum (01249 730459) are 20 miles away. Bristol and Bath, and their many attractions, are both under 20 miles away and about a 30-minute drive from site. It’s about the same distance to The Wave, a man-made inland surfing lagoon (0333 0164133). If you’re at the campsite in May, you might like to know that the Badminton Horse Trials take place just under four miles away.
Food and drink
The Buthay Inn (01454 299083) is just a mile away from site in Wickwar and serves food and drink most days. There are also lots of pubs, restaurants, and coffee shops in Chipping Sodbury. There is even a cocktail bar, Brook’s, which serves light bites and non-alcoholic drinks along with cocktails. Chipping Sodbury is also well-populated with independent butchers, bakers (the renowned Hobbs House Bakery) and greengrocers — and has a Waitrose too. There are more supermarkets in Yate.
