Shhh! Don't tell. This one is a gem.

A farm turned over to visitors centre, turned over to campsite. If you don't mind basic facilities it's great.

47 for 2 adults/3 children for 2 nights, including firewood and tractor-ride to our pitch. That's expensive for no shower, but the site makes it worthwhile.

Beautiful setting with fields dotted down the slopes of a hill, the main camping area an amphitheatre between clumps of woodland, and tents spread out into little separate settlements over many acres giving a feeling of more space.

The kids get umpteen acres to wander into - a totally different experience from most campsites' 2 minutes run to the swings. The farm is dotted with (modern) henges, animal bones, springs. We saw hares and foxes but think the tales of big cats may be exaggerated. Deep fire pits and masses of wood to burn.

The enthusiastic and welcoming owner Richard, after years of sustainable farming, is planning many things, first up being solar-powered showers. The new composting loos are so solidly built they are better than many sites' conventional shower blocks. It's all part of a vision.

There's never silence, but given the noise comes from the wind turbine on the hill 1/2 mile away, hey, that's the future. The motocross that meets next door 4 or 5 times a year is more of an issue, partying at night & scrambling from 9am. You can check on www.Amca.Uk.Com whether the Dursley Motocross is planning a meet at the Tinkley Lane, Nympsfield site on your chosen weekend.

Will be back, hopefully with a few more facilities ready next year to make for a longer stay.

Like stepping back in time to the good old days,

Space, Tranquillity, Fresh Air, Thistledown has it all. Mega large interesting site, great for young children to run around in safety.

Could be boring for teenagers who are not in the company of other kids. Toilets are Portaloo type, other types under construction.

The owners, Richard and son Ryan, Work hard to keep things just right, and go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable.

Shopping at Nailsworth 2 miles, Tesco, Morrisons and other nice local shops.

Endless number of interesting places to go, and things to do all within 0-25 mile.

The whole area is of outstanding beauty, enjoy.

Lovely campsite with basic amenities in a very peaceful, tranquil spot with beautiful woodland outlook. The kids enjoyed the few animals and the woodland trails and the helpful advise given to them on what to look out for.
The surrounding area provided us with good friendly pubs and good facilities / eg shops. We stayed a short time but we shall be back to enjoy this place for a little longer.
