Welcome to Folly Farm, Cotswold Campsite

Folly Farm is a quiet, family owned Cotswold Campsite with two fields for tent use only and a walled area for caravans.  During quiet periods it is possible for tents to be included with caravans.

Folly Farm has basic facilities and tends to be enjoyed by those who want a simple campsite. We encourage individuals, couples, quiet groups and families to stay.  There is space to play ball and for children to explore. The Plough is a fifteen minute walk across fields from the campsite.  For those who like a longer walk or short drive there are a number of local villages with pubs that serve excellent food (The Black Horse in Naunton, The Hollow Bottom in Guiting Power).  All the amenities of Bourton on the Water are 2.5 miles from the site.
