Follow the winding road into the woods,

Just bring your car laden with camping goods,

Turn left into the site and check in with lovely Karina,

A well stocked shop from logs to Ribena!

Next to our pitch for adventures in the wild,

This place is paradise for all ages, from adult to child.

Set up your tent and prepare your camp fire,

Washing machine drums and grills are available for hire.

The facilities are just right for authentic camping,

With composting loos this is definitely not glamping!

But the lure of nature and the beauty of the fauna.

Beats living it up with a TV and sauna!?

We go every year and would go more if we could.

To that magical campsite in old Badgells Wood.

Karina and Mike we have had the most amazing weekend with our friends and children camping here this Easter. Thank you so much for not only the most amazing camping experience (so nice to not have lights at all!) but also putting on a most generous Easter egg hunt. We will definitely be back! Wine and toasting marshmallows by the campfire on an evening as well as showering with birdsong on a morning. Amazing! Thanks for taking the time out of your day to chat to us and making us feel most welcome. Anyone looking for proper camping (compost loos and shed showers) and a safe place for children to explore; this campsite is a must. Highly recommend.

Excellent hidden away gem of a campsite. Local village of Harvel has a decent farm shop. Did not try any other local amenities though.

I was part of a group of about a dozen and we chilled out by the campfire. Toilets are good. Washing facilities and showers warm. (Ethos is low waste so short showers are encouraged). Free range eggs and basic camp shop on site.

This is what campings all about, rope swings, open fires and loads of woodland to get lost in. Awesome campsite, toilets and showers bang on. Craig the bushtucker man was great, taught my son to make fire with a bow and drill method. No lighter or matches needed! Couldn't recommend it enough, if you want real outdoor camping. My 12 year old son loved it.

Stayed for 2 nights last weekend, as per previous visits a warm friendly welcome, I arrived nice & early so got a choice of pitches, site not full but like previous visits all campers polite & observed noise rules making it a really relaxing visit, it's so good to have such a pretty woodland site within easy reach of London, site is tidy with perfectly adequate 'facilities' which were checked/cleaned daily, loads of places to visit for days out & this time chose Chartwell a 30 minute drive away & very easy to walk dogs on site, really like the updates on their website charting the woodlands history! will certainly be visiting again next year.

My Wife and I spent last week here (no kids around, as they're all back in school).

It was quite easily the most enjoyable camping experience we've ever had.

A warm welcome from Mike and Karina, left alone to our own devices in beautiful surroundings with no intrusions or anything to upset our peace and solitude.

We started our fire every morning with our first coffee, and didn't put it out until we went to bed each night. We both slept like babies, with only the sound of an Owl to keep us company. Absolute bliss.

This is a unique place, that may not suit everyone, but will be like heaven for those that appreciate what camping is MEANT to be like.

Minimal facilities (exactly what we wanted!) but the ones they do have are absolutely immaculate, and suit the place perfectly. Clean toilets, good showers, spotless washing facilities.

We originally booked for two nights, immediately extended it to four, and then added an extra one at the end. We enjoyed it THAT much.

We're also members of the C&CC, who have some lovely sites too, but nothing that even comes close to this place.

We'll be back again as soon as they open next season, and we're heartbroken that we'll have to wait that long even.

We made one brief trip to the nearest shop, just to get a few supplies, and went straight back to our peaceful, heavily wooded pitch, as we couldn't stand to be away from it.

After a lifetime of camping, finding this place has been the end of a long journey. We could keep coming back here for the rest of our lives.

In summary, it's the sort of place that clears your mind, soothes your soul, and makes you reflect on your priorities in life. If this place doesn't impress you, then you may be missing the very essence of what camping is meant to be. Ben & Jo Young.
