Muddy says: A boutique cool camping/glamping site with 3 bell tents and room to pitch your own. Their Soulpads bring luxury and comfort to the most reluctant campers. It’s a big Muddy thumbs up from us!
You like your camping of the luxury glamping variety, but still long for the wild beauty of the Wilts countryside? Hampsley Hollow near Calne has your name written all over it. Originally a riding stables, it now has three bell tents with plenty of room to pitch your own tents too – the perfect spot for adventurous Muddy folk who want to pedal, hack or hike the Wiltshire downs. It’s great for exclusive hire for family get-togethers, birthday parties, even hen do’s (even the second time around!) The feeling is of luxury and fun, with proper mattresses, duvets and pillows in the tents, plus “pop to the loo shoes”, umbrellas, bottle openers (natch) and fairy lights.
The Ivy Inn is a traditional local a mere hop and skip-slash-stumble down the road, serving lunches daily and evening meals at weekends.
As wedding venues go, Hampsley is unusual, quirky, but a riot of fun. They only hold a small number each year to ensure they remain unique and extraordinary, so book early. Go Festive, Country, Boho, Fiesta or Formal – it’s up to you!
