Pop-up’s Woods & Meadow campsite
Camping in the woodland and meadows
This beautiful campsite is made up of 3 separate meadows with woodland attached all sprawling over 20 acres. The land has been designated in the area of outstanding natural beauty and is car-free, music free giving you every opportunity to connect with your surroundings and nature, the perfect place to recharge your batteries.
Our pitches are ideal for families, groups and individuals looking for child-free space, Whatever your budget, self pitching, camper van, tree tents, bell tents we can cater for your taste and style.
Across the site, you will find Chill out structures, that if not booked out are free for campers to use. The woodland has free hammocks but also has designated hammock areas for campers bringing their own to sleep in and set up more wild camping.
The Woods & Meadow camp is open on weekends from May-mid July and then rotates to 7 days a week through July and August.
Our Meadow fields and woods have a bountiful supply of secret spaces for families, groups and individuals looking for a place to enjoy natural and off-grid camping. Walk through trackways to pitches cut through the meadow grass from just £15 per person per night in an unforgettable location. Each pitch comes with washing up bucket and recycling bags and don’t forget to take advantage of our ‘Bell-Hop’ service to take all the hard work out of moving your belongings to your pitch.

Our pitches have been carefully set out to make the most of the beautiful Meadow so that you can enjoy natural, off-grid camping. Whether you are a family, group or individual there is a perfect piece of the outdoors waiting for you on our Meadow so you can enjoy nature uninterrupted.
Spaces available for June and July
Our private hammock ground is situated away from the main camping ground, giving a slightly more wild edge to the experience. You can bring your own and just pay the £15 per person per night fee, or hire of our own Hammock kits, that include DD hammock, thermal under blanket and DD over camp tarp for £50 per night.
Our 3 person suspension tree tent with sprung under living space gives comfort style and a different perspective on camping Sleep amongst the trees gazing up at the stars and drift away on a bed of air. We do recommend bringing war under blankets and sleeping bags to sleep in and on.

Sounds great, but what about the toilets?
We designed our infrastructure to fit around you and your needs, with a mixture of composting and traditional toilets you will never be very far away from a convenience.
Tell me more about your ethos and camp facilities!
We run off-grid so that you can enjoy a genuine back-to-nature experience; real down to earth camping doesn’t have to be hard work and we have provided you with everything you need for your comfort.
Unlike other campsites, we have designed our facilities to be mobile and versatile to meet the changing needs and spaces on our site.
We pride ourselves in using up-cycled materials wherever possible – look out for our eco-toilets in vintage horse box trailers!
We have both compost and traditional toilets across the site and wonderful piping hot showers. For your ease we have washing-up stations dotted all over the site next to drinking water points and if you are looking at hiring shelters for communal spaces we can offer these too so just get in touch. We care for our stream habitat so we provide paraben free washing up liquid and shower soap for our campers to use.
Fires And Wood
Camping isn’t camping without setting fire to something, however, they do need to be treated with respect and common sense. We have fire pits available for every pitch to prevent the tree roots being damaged, and handy buckets to help you extinguish them in the evening.
We have permission for campers to forage for small fallen timber to act as kindling but nothing bigger campers as the forestry team turn coppice wood into money for the winter. Our neighbouring estate has produced our bags of wood so please ask the warden and they will be happy to sell you some!
Bell Hop transport service to your pitch
We are also operating a Bell hop service on weekends (Friday and Sunday) that will ferry all kit across the site for £5 a load from the new car park in field 1.
This is an add on service from our observations in 2020 showing us that campers needed help with heavy car loads of gear and the land was struggling under the weight of Vehicles. Wheel barrows will still be available in the car parks.
What is the Bell Hop Service?
What is it?
The Bell Hop operates with Quad bikes and 4×4 vehicles picking up campers equipment from the car park and dropping it directly onto their pitch.
Why offer this service?
This year we have taken the decision to no longer allow cars onto the main camping fields or woodland (except camper vans), we have invested in trailers, quads and 4×4’s subsidised the service so for a small fee we transport your camping gear directly to your pitch.
Why can’t Idrive to my pitch?
The Land started to struggle with the amount of cars driving across the field, as did the Wildlife, and it was became increasingly difficult to get campers driving safely in wet conditions or being mindful of others so we decide to change things.
How do I book this service
You can book the service through the booking system in EXTRAS but we will only be taking cash for the service.
What if I don’t want this service
No problem! If you would rather transport your kit across the site, we have provided wheel barrows that are in the car park, all we ask is that you return them after you have finished using them.
Welcoming you to the site
We warden the campsites on weekends at check-in, show you to your pitch and assist with anything you need during your stay. Wardens are not always available during the week and we check in remotely so do look out for your allocation email on the week of your stay to help orientate you to your pitch.
Wood Fired Pizza on a friday night
Why not book in for our Friday night pizzas. This year we are sending out menus and time slots 5 days before your arrival. To avoid disappointment please book in for the pizzas when booking your pitching as we do not carry enough for every camper onsite. We will not charge you for anything until arrival.
It is the pain of every campsite and camper to deal with Rubbish.
Being a Pop up short stay camping ground moving about we have always had problems sourcing rubbish accounts as they offer 12 month contracts.
Luckly this year we have found a company who will take all of our recycling on an as and when basis. So recycling will operate like this…
We give netty bags on each number pitch, one bag is for glass that must be empty and separated. The second bag is for all empty plastic and cans. Then on the Sunday we open the bins situated by reception and on your way out deposit your recycled waste. Hoorah!
We welcome dogs, please keep them controlled for neighbours, livestock, wildlife and other campers.
