Amber's Bell Tent Camping at Bells …

6 glamping pitches
Luxury bell tent glamping in rural Worcestershire that's perfect for farmers, families and foodies

When Bells Farm Shop first opened in the 1950s they were seen as pioneers of this new fangled 'pick your own' thing. Nowadays it may seem old hat but, with some 40 acres of fruit and vegetables and over 200 different varieties, they remain perhaps the most diversely stocked farm shop in the country. Polytunnels packed with strawberries, manicured orchards, rows of potatoes and runner beans lined out like vineyards; it’s quite the agricultural scene. On a small hill amongst it all a small collection of bell tents have also taken root. You can also take your pick from these.

Set in a six-acre meadow, with westerly views across the Severn Valley that makes for divine sunsets, there are just six bell tents in total, with a picnic table and campfire pit beside each and masses of space beyond to roam free range. They form one of multiple glamping sites across the country, set up by Amber Wykes at a range of farms and country estates. All have similarly plush-style bell tents, with interiors that feature a real double bed, wood-burning stove and a box of cookwares that help you whip up a storm with your freshly picked vegetables. You can also pre-order food hampers from the farm shop ready for your arrival.

When it comes to scrubbing up, brand new, purpose-built bathrooms have been built in a wooden building on the field, with a washing up station outside. There’s an honesty shop and wood store, so you can keep you marshmallows toasting whatever the time of the day, while, in the tents, you’ll also find educational packs for farm enthusiasts who want to know a bit more about what is grown nearby and the nature that supports it (tours are also available on request).

Down by the shop, there are pedal go karts and miniature tractors for the kids but for something more realistic (and with better scenery) it’s a 15 minute drive to the village of Bewdley where steam trains puff their way along the Severn Valley line to Kidderminster or Bridgnorth. First opened in 1862, the line is a relic of the region’s great industrial heritage and makes just one of many historical sights in the area: The ruined Italianate mansion of Witely Court, National Trust-owned Hanbury Hall and moated Harvington Hall are all within a 20-minute drive, while it’s less than half an hour into the centre of Worcester. Vast Wyre Forest, meanwhile, is a mere 15 minutes by car, with endless family trails on which to stretch little legs.

Return to camp via the award-winning butcher’s in the farm shop and rekindle the campfire. Each pit has a grill you can use to turn your campfire into a proper flame-grilling barbecue and there’s plenty of free range produce you can use to build the ultimate outdoor feast. With a Worcester Oldfields cider in hand (and Bells’ own apple juice for the kids), you’ll feel like a true local.

Lovely open field with tents spaced far apart, great farm shop selling a wide range of things, and a very friendly welcome. Saw Roe deer on the site, close to our tent. Everything was very well thought through and the toilets and showers absolutely spotless. Thank you for having us!

Amber's Bell Tents at Bells Farm
We had a wonderful 5 days away with our 2 outdoorsy boys at Amber's Bell tent. The tent was very spacious and well equipped. The added extras such as the hot chocolate and marshmallows went down a treat with the kids. There is lots of open space for the kids to play, run and explore. The toilets and showers are spacious, easily accessible and very clean. Overall we had a lovely 5 days away and I would highly recommend Amber's Bell tents.

Amber's Bell Tents at Bells Farm
Brilliantly well equipped and spacious tents in a wonderful location next to a pick your own fruit farm and farm shop. We received a wonderful welcome and the little added extras like marshmallows and hot chocolate went down a treat the the kids. Lots of space on site for the kids to run, play and explore. The toilets and showers were modern and comfortable and immaculately clean. If you get the opportunity try the pizza oven what a fantastic experience. I would definitely recommend Amber's Bell tents. Thank you for a great week.

We met here as two families travelling from Cheshire and Buckinghamshire as a good mid location. We were really happy to find a fun little dog show with live music and some games and stalls to keep the kids entertained before we checked into our bell tent. Our tents exceeded our expectation, prestine and very comfortable. Everything supplied to make our stay easy. Welcome hamper with delicious supplies from the fabulous farm shop (the Best plums and strawberries ever tasted!). The toilets and showers were spotless and there were games available for the kids to use. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return to this site again and highly recommend to others.

It's 6 miles to Harvington Hall (01562 777846), a moated medieval and Elizabethan manor house that runs 'living history' days during the school holidays, with actors in period dress and family activities.

Food and drink

How many farm shops can lay claim to some 200 different varieties of fruit and vegetables you can pilfer? Pluck your own fresh strawberries from the earth to go with your campfire pancakes and grill freshly picked sweetcorn over the coals of your BBQ. Just take your pick, then head into Bells Farm Shop (01299 251364) to pay afterwards. If you're too lazy to pick your own, you can just go straight to the shop and get the pre-picked stuff, along with jams, chutneys and other local goods (including a butchers and a wide range of drinks from local breweries). For a meal out, there are no fewer than 15 different pubs in Stourport-on-Severn, 2½ miles down the road.
