Camping in Nature at Vallis Veg

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: We are open from 4th July in line with government guidelines. We have put measures in place to protect campers, including a wider access path to pitches with passing points, hand sanitiser at the washblock, a one way system for campers to use the washblock and regular deep cleaning of the washblock facilities. The washing cubicles are closed until official advice allows them to open.

Our site

At Vallis Veg we love natural camping spots and we love campfires. These are what we aim to offer our campers. Our site is not a conventional site with lots of tents squeezed together in a flat field. We are a small farm and the camping is a little bit wilder. We have levelled spaces for tents among our young trees so you can camp in your own space, with leaves around you instead of lots of other tents!

DO READ THE ESSENTIAL INFORMATION FOR CAMPERS BEFORE BOOKING – SEE MENU AT LEFT

FACILITIES ARE BASIC, although we do have a sink area for washing up with cold running water – safe for drinking. And, of course, a couple of compost toilets.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: you can’t drive right up to your campsite – we have a wheelbarrow you can borrow to move your belongings.

The sites range from deep in trees (pitches 4, 5 and 6 – which is open at the front) to gently wooded (pitches 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11) to more open (pitches 13 to 16). The mix of rough ground, coarse shrubs and young trees on our site attracts a range of wildlife. We see a barn owl hunting, kestrels, buzzards, a sparrowhawk, toads, frogs, newts, grass snakes, lots of song birds, stoats and many many more creatures.  We hope you enjoy our beautiful site.
