The campsite is situated in a 20 acre wood called Hortham Wood.

The woodland is teeming with wildlife and plants ready for you to investigate.

An adjacent area is planted to grass, so if you have had enough of cooking marsh mallows on an open camp fire, or whittling a fork for tea, you can still kick a football or lie back and look at the stars.

This is a basic camp site, facilities include a cold water tap, sink for washing up, toilets and a hot shower by the camping area.

Campfires are encouraged, and charged at £5.00 per night. Enabling you to forage for fallen wood from within the wood (please do not cut down live trees).

We ask you to keep fires in the woodland, within pre-arranged fire pits.

There are no electric hook-ups or electricity points for recharging devices, or Wi-Fi on site.

Free parking is offered for one car per tent. The parking area is approximately 300m from the camping area. We have wheel barrows and trolleys, for you to transfer your tent.

  • Maximum stay 3 nights.
  • No pets sorry.

The woodland is approximately 1 mile from the M5 motorway. This is means we have great access to the roads around Bristol, the downside is there is a little background noise. We camp in the wood as a family, and think it is fine, but we want you to be fully aware, therefore we would not describe our woodland camping as a glamping site… If you have any concerns, please arrange a visit, before you book.

We have had WOW! to OW! camper experiences…. we welcome campers who wish to enjoy peaceful camping in a woodland setting.

Due to problem experiences, we do not accept all bookings.

We welcome, campers looking for a peaceful time, respectful of others, keeping noise to a minimum after 8.00pm, including:

  • Family groups
  • Couples (two people)
  • Bush crafters / Hamockers
  • Landsend to John O’Groat charity groups

We do not accept bookings from people looking for a party/festival in the woods, alcohol generally means noise, which keeps other campers awake, which triggers complaints.

We do not accept:

  • Stag / Hen Parties
  • Single or Mixed sex groups is a trading name of AcornCo Ltd.


Income from camping in the woodland will help us maintain the wood for future generations to enjoy.
