Great camp site set in woodland. Extremely friendly and helpful owners. It was a busy weekend with lots of people on site but the woods soaked it all up and you really felt as though you had it all to yourself. Facilities are basic if you like your camp sites all singing and dancing but they have everything you need. Washing up and shower facilities with washing up liquid and shower gel provided and the toilets and showers were kept clean all weekend. Ropeswings for the kids and firewood available with some basics in a small shop. Couldn't recommend it enough

This is a great site - terrific location, the pitches are well spaced out, the woodland well-kept. It all made for a proper camping experience. We were a big party of about 15 and they accomodated us easily. They were friendly and helpful and have some great relationships with local businesses such as the pub that delivers food. Showers were clean & water was hot. The toilets were also clean and well-maintained. There are some pretty villages nearby and some great walking so I'll definitely be coming back again.

This was the best campsite I have ever been too. It was truly unbelievable. The site was very professional and well organised. The customer was truly put first at every touch point. But what truly separated this site, was the ecofriendly attitude and beautiful forest which you could explore and find your own isolated spot! I would recommend this to everyone I know. The swedish candles were sooooo clever, a lovely touch to a lovely holiday.

We visited Badgells Wood for the first time last weekend for the Bank Holiday and our Annual Family Camping get together. I was rather apprehensive as :

-we normally camp in a luxury touring caravan,

-it was pouring with rain,

-situated in a wood,

-no tap on our 'pitch' no electric etc!

However, I was bowled away by the experience, mainly down to the amazing site and the site wardens for whom, nothing was too much trouble, oh and the sun came out for 3 days!

After booking in you are basically shown on a map the areas available to pitch up (loads of them) and so take yourself off and choose where to stay. Ours was down a path so couldn't get the car nearby, but there are wheelbarrows available to use.

Drinking water can be purchased in the shop along with other essentials you may have forgotten to pack. Wood is available to purchase for a campfire - encouraged - along with Swedish candles should you prefer.

There are a few portaloos around which were cleaned regularly and stocked with loo paper and a couple of showers, but hey for the first time ever I made do with 'festival washes' :-)

It appeared to be mainly family/friends in large groups making camp together around campfires. Lots of children having a great time - my 3 year old grandson had the time of his life! A playground has been rigged up with rope swing etc.

A fantastic farm shop selling excellent meat, veg, cakes etc is just down the road and its not far to a supermarket if you need. Didn't try the local pubs as intended to stay on site for weekend.

I would happily recommend the site especially if you are a large group.

Reviewer: Jcm1980 1 review from this member

Whilst this site is beautiful, I felt that it was extremely expensive for what was offered. I've never come across a site where payment is per person, rather than per pitch. It meant that one night for two cost 25 - which is a huge amount considering the facilities are so basic.

Also, there was extremely loud live music until 12. 30 at night coming from a nearby field - maybe it was a weddding but it made it impossible to sleep and ruined the calm atmosphere of being in the countryside.

I don't know if the music comes from a pub and is regular, or was just a one off and we were unlucky, but I wouldn't return again.

Our first time at this site and we wished we could have stayed for a week. We were encouraged to have a proper fire and the woodland clearings for pitches made it feel like we were in the middle of nowhere, although when we got our bearings we were nearer the reception than we realised.

The site itself is extremely peaceful and the guys gave us a warm welcome and oh my the cleanest portaloos I have even seen! Such a refreshing change to feel that you were in your own little camp rather than having people piled up next to you and running between your tents.

We will definitely go back and will be spreading the word amongst our friends. I hear there are other related sites which we will definitely check out. The only thing I would love to see here which is missing is a eco loo!
