Peace and quiet equals “Solitude at my farm. I’m just like you. I want to camp at a quiet place in the country where it’s plenty of acres and no houses to look at and a clean bathroom and shower. Well it’s here. I’m Located in Wakefield Virginia. If you’re traveling to Virginia Beach I’m one hour away. From my farm there is a free ferry in Scotland where the ferry departs to Williamsburg just 30 minutes. At my farm I have 5 sites for tent/camping so it’s spaced appropriately apart I have 2 Rv sites totally away for their privacy and a new mini house also properly spaced away. All have a clean picnic table and a fire pit. 100 feet away you’ll find that clean bathroom, shower and a wash station for hygiene. You’ll see the love I put into this and because I love it and my prior guests love it, which means it may be right for you also. In the town of Wakefield you’ll find gas stations, dollar stores, a Value food market and if you want (to go) food we have that also. Plus it’s home to The Virginia Diner. Amenities include toilet access, a shower, trash disposal, picnic tables, and potable water. Pets are allowed, as are campfires.

Great host beautiful property.
Loved our stay. Cabin is cozy and comfortable. Marvin has just installed a toilet in the cabin, very convenient and a sink with running water in kitchen. Enjoyed our evening by the camp fire and the beautiful outdoors. Marvin is the perfect host.

Marvin was a delight, from the booking communication to helping set up our camp way after dark (we futzed around too much on our aimless wandering and didn’t plot out when we’d actually arrive). The sunrise was extraordinary, and I appreciated all the little touches that made the stay special. He also delivered us some firewood that we ordered but we were too tired for a campfire. All and all a great spot and Marvin made a lovely campsite for everyone to check out. You can definitely see his pride in his land.

The land was beautiful. Sitting outside and stargazing was wonderful. My 2 dogs loved all the leaves that were falling. The trails were wide open through the woods, with a nice creek. Very open sites, a lot of space to enjoy and unwind. We will definitely come back to this farm.

We absolutely loved this camp site! Marvin went way out of his way to make us feel welcome and the property has a few really secluded camping areas! My wife loved the "real" toilet and the hot shower! And our dog had plenty of room to stretch his legs! We will return to this camp in the future for sure!

Tiny House Treasure!
We loved everything about Marvin’s campsite/tiny house. We made a pit stop at the farm on our way down to NC. Marvin was so kind and hospitable. The tiny house had everything we needed and was clean. We enjoyed exploring, playing bags with our kids, s’mores over the campfire, and a sky full of stars. Would definitely recommend!

Romantic weekend
This was an awesome romantic weekend for my girl and I. We’re both not the most outdoorsy people but this was perfect. Marvin is the best host ever and made us feel very welcome and was very helpful. We grilled, made s’mores, went to vineyard, and had an unforgettable experience; the indoor shower and toilet were lifesavers. Plus having an actually bed made our nights a lot more fun ;)

Solitude was everything in the picture and more. Perfect amount of space and comfortable. Just sitting on the porch and enjoying the fresh air and quiet comfort. Mr Marvin was a stupendous host and his hospitality unmatched. Celebrated my birthday and look forward to the next visit sooner rather than later. Everything was clean and set up. He got us the best fire going also! Amazing

This was my first time using this website so I was unsure a little of what to expect. Upon arriving, Marvin was outside waiting to greet us with a smile. Marvin was very kind and welcoming. Since we were the only ones there my dogs got to run freely. We played cornhole, walked around, set up camp and relaxed. I would certainly come back here in the future.

We came for a quick getaway, loved it SO MUCH, we’re taking the kids back next weekend! We enjoyed shooting, exploring, and sharing stories with Marvin. We packed absolutely nothing and got everything we needed in town only 8 mins from the site. We cannot wait to make MANY more memories at Thornton Farm!

Awesome service!
This dude, went OUT OF HIS WAY, to make sure I had the best experience on his property. I absolutely could not recommend this guy enough. Even though I didn’t arrive until 9:30pm, he had a fire lit and a smile to welcome me. I’m sure there are more “up-scale” campgrounds. But I’m certain there is not a more up-scale man running this fantastic establishment. His goal is CLEARLY customer satisfaction and he absolutely crushed it. It was just me and my dog for a single night, couldn’t be happier, will absolutely actually go out of my way to stay here again in the future, even if it costs me an hour in driving time.

The Tiny Red House was perfect. We had shelter from the rain. Marvin has added some great touches. There are a couple more cooking items, like an air fryer and electric skillet. There is no running water in Tiny House but there is access to it close by. Marvin is always an attentive host. He treats us like family.

Tent camping with children
The area Marvin has marked out for each site are great! Each one has ample space and allows for privacy. Marvin was a great host, I also added 2 bundles of firewood which he brought over. In the bundles he also included an ample amount of kindling. He also brought over an axe for us to split wood, and there was plenty of firewood throughout the area surrounding our camp which we could have also used. The bathroom and shower we clean and we had a great time! Thank you Marvin!!

The scenery was wonderful, it was very peaceful, the location is definitely secluded so you would definitely have your full solitude of just nature, the land, the stars and everything else that comes with it. The host made sure the property was clean upon our arrival. The host was very warm, kind, and knowledgeable. Thank you for opening up your land to us we will be back soon very soon.

Marvin & this cabin = True gems
This cabin and Marvin are true gems. I arrived to Marvin’s cabin after a day of visiting my brother in Richmond, stressed because I hadn’t gotten a chance to finish my work. I pulled up to Marvin setting up the fire for me, the kind of hosting touch I didn’t know I needed. The home is impeccably clean, cleaner than any Airbnb or hotel room I’ve been in. He is a wonderful person and I felt safe on the property, especially knowing he was just a text away. I also loved the fact that I was staying on a Black owned farm, which has been in his family since the early 1900s. I highly recommend staying here!

Tiny house with a ton of space!
I loved staying in Marvin’s tiny house! It was so cozy, there were incredibly thoughtful touches (including great artwork by his daughter), and it felt like a home away from home! My friends and I enjoyed the fire pits, got to play giant jenga, and explore the surrounding land at our leisure. Marvin really makes sure to welcome you to the property and then gives you all the privacy you want/need to enjoy the space and land! So grateful we got to spend time at this site. Ps: the sunrise and sunset on this property are unreal. Make sure to wake up early and grab a seat outside to enjoy!

Great for winter camping!
We had a wonderful time in our teardrop trailer camping in winter! Indoor toilet, shower, sink with hot water and electric hookup all perfect for cold weather camping! Marvin met us and got us situated, very friendly and fast response time to messages. Firewood and fire pits available on site. So quiet and open view of the stars! Highly recommend it!

Another Perfect and Peaceful Stay
We definitely enjoyed the solitude!!!! We'd been looking forward to getting back since our first visit. We were not disappointed. Thorton Farm is a gem of a place! Everything you need to be comfortable is right at your fingertips and yet we were still able to disconnect from the world for two days. Marvin is a terrific host with awesome recommendations of things to do in the area. Looking forward to our next visit.
