Camping in a magical woodland setting near a working farm

As if a coterie of cool animals – bison, elk, raccoons, chipmunks and more – wasn’t enough, how does 30 acres of gorgeous oak woodland sound? While the Bison Farm and shop is well known in these parts, the campsite is a bit of a secret. The small, sheltered paddock is reserved exclusively for caravans and campervans and also holds a fabulous wooden pod sleeping four, while the main field is primarily for groups. But Bush Farm’s real draw is its vast woodland area, throughout which are half a dozen super-sized clearings, each easily big enough to accommodate several tents. You’ll also find a picnic bench and brick firepit for use in each clearing and, if you need wood, there’s a designated area where you can chop your own. With so much frolicking about to be done among the woods – including a small brook for the kids to splash around in – a neat play area (including zip wire), and what basically amounts to a mini-zoo, there should be little temptation to leave the site. But, if you fancy a wee excursion, Stonehenge is just up the road, and there are a handful of gentle walks nearby.
