about us

We are a quiet, family-friendly campsite based on our small arable farm.  The site is surrounded by rolling countryside with spectacular views. We offer a mixture of grass and hardstanding pitches with the option of an electric hook-up. The area is much loved for its extensive walks and cycle routes and we are a 20-minute walk across fields to The Plough in Cold Aston.  

Bourton-on-the-Water, the Slaughters, Winchcombe and Stow-on-the-Wold are a short drive away. 

We have recently built new facilities that include heated washrooms with toilets, wash basins and free showers. We provide a dishwashing area, 10 amp electric hook-up points and a chemical WC disposal point.


We are pleased that our new facilities block with managers' accommodation is now ready. The new block is better insulated (i.e warmer) and has a more efficient water heating system so we are now able to offer free showers for the first time. We hope you will enjoy the improvement.

We are delighted to introduce Laura and Marc who will be running the campsite. They are keen campers who are familiar with Folly Farm, having camped here in the past, and are looking forward to meeting campers, both regular and new! They come with lots of experience and enthusiasm.

All we need now is lots of lovely weather!


All pitches include 2 people and 1 vehicle. Children aged 3 yrs and under are free.

Large tents/vans that require over 6 metres width or length need to be confirmed by phone or email.

There is a backpackers rate for anyone who walks/cycles to the site with a small 1-2 man tent, for information regarding this please call us.

Please arrive between 1.00pm to 9.00pm, pitches should be vacated by 11.00am on the day of departure. If you need flexibility with your arrival or departure times contact us and we will do our best to help.

There is a minimum booking of three nights for Bank Holidays and two nights for High Season Weekends.
