We visit Badgells' about 7 or 8 times a year.

It is awesome for camping in anything from a tarp to a family tent.

Mike and Karina have a wonderful way of making you feel welcome.

The kids enjoy playing in the trenches, on the swing and having a go with Daddy's hatchet.

You can have a proper campfire.

The bluebells are lovely in spring and the woods cool in summer.

The best campsite I have been to. The toilets, showers, and washing up facilities are spotless. I was mostly impressed with the showers. The showers cubicles are very large, with hot water available all the time. Adjacent to the shower cubicle, is a large change area, with plenty of hooks to hang your clothes on and a bench to sit on. This area remains dry after a shower. So no getting dressed in puddles of water. Just outside the shower units, are hand basins with proper mirrors. Outside the toilets are hand basins with antibacterial hand wash.

The staff are relaxed, friendly, helpful and very chilled out. So immediately on arrival, their calmness makes you feel stress free.

They will extend themselves to ensure that your needs are met. All you need do is ASK.

I am slightly disabled, so cant walk too far, and wasnít sure I could sleep in a tent because of the mattress problem. They allowed me to park my small campervan nearby the facilities just in case I needed to abandon the tenting (i was with a group, tenting elsewhere on site), and use the campervan.

They also deliver logs and water and your belongings, to your campsite if you decide to camp in more remote areas.

There is an adults only section and a family section. Individual camp units are far apart from each other, so you have privacy, and cant see your neighbour, because of all the trees.

Very unusual for campsites, you are allowed to have a fire.

Safe for solo female campers, as the staff do their rounds throughout the night to check up on your safety.

I donít know much about the surrounding areas, as I cant walk far, and donít know much about facilities for children, as I went with adults. But I did see swings from trees for the children, and bush craft lessons.

If I give a fantastic review, more people are going to come here and there is a possibility it will become spoilt. If I say it's bad, we risk losing an amazing camp area.

4 families with 10 kids between the ages of 4 and 14.

5 of the kids slept in hammocks, it's that sort of place. Brilliant.

The kids just enjoyed the space, the adults enjoyed the freedom the kids had. And the flavoured vodka we brought :)

DO NOT EXPECT LUXURY OR FLUSHING TOILETS.

^ that is why this place is so amazing.

If you like your camping to be down and dirty then this is for you. If you have kids from 6 and up and you don't mind them getting filthy it's also for you. If you drive a campervan and value your suspension then avoid like the plague. The woodland setting is very pretty, the compost toilets smell but that's not a problem but the lack of drinking water on site is a pain. Our pitch was full of craters and the shards of shot clay pigeons and was also used as a thoroughfare by the large group of campers nearby.

However, the wardens are lovely and nothing was too much trouble. If you live in a city and want to get back to nature you will love it. However it is overpriced for the facilities.

Just back from a 2 night stay, site busy but not noisy, as before great welcome, love the new thunder boxes way better than the old porta loo's, great location for anyone in South London. Plenty of space between pitches to maintain privacy & to cap it all great weather, looking forward to more visits in 2015.

Reviewer: RatboyBarnett 1 review from this member

My six year old son and I have just returned from a fantastic stay at Badgells Wood. This is camping for those who want to enjoy sleeping in the woods, cooking over a real fire, but still want a hot, warm shower in the morning!

The way they have set the camping areas in the woods is superb. You can get your car to the edge of the woods and carry your stuff into the thick of the trees very easily. (They will help you with a quad bike if you wish to go very deep. ) Cheap hire of various rustic forms of cooking equipment is available, as well as fresh laid eggs from their chickens.

Toilets are placed at regular intervals through the site, and the showers are Swiss Family Robinson style, but work perfectly. There are rope swings for the kids to enjoy, but mostly its the setting; Miles of woods, or surrounding countryside, for young explorers. We shall certainly be going back.
