Peaceful, tranquil and unspoilt green camping with superb views. A night or more at Thistledown gives you much more than just a campsite. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty lies Thistledown Farm: 4 miles of maintained paths and sculpture trails wind their way through 70 acres of meadow, pasture and woodland. Educational boards around the site provide information on a host of environmental and agricultural subjects. Friendly pigs, goats and cattle are always happy to greet visitors. Fire pits are provided and wood is available to be bought. Numbers are strictly limited and booking is essential - please see our website for online booking.
