Muddy says: Camping, glamping, or self-catering in the heart of Wilts? Ah, you’ll want to check out the fab Whychurch Farm!
It’s camping and glamping all the way at this cool and quirky gaff just outside Malmesbury. Glamping wagons are cute and comfortable, with enough mod-cons for a fair-weather camper like me, and the perfect spot to rest your head if you’re visiting glamorous Malmesbury, Abbey House Gardens, Westonbirt Arboretum, Cotswold Water Park, Bath, Badminton Horse Trials, Stonehenge, Lacock or Castle Combe, or even if you’re hitting the bright lights of WOMAD this summer. There is also a campsite and two B&B cottages on site but it’s the wagons I particularly love. In fact, bring the car around, will you? I might just hitch one up and take it home…
The Glamping Wagons have full tea and coffee making facilities, toasters, grills, hot plates, small fridges and heating if needed, although all wagons are insulated and keep very snug. Plus, two of them are dog friendly, which is what we like to hear! The Campsite, with its stunning views over the 40 acre field is called the Worthies, and the facilities building has everything you need for your camping or glamping stay with us. Prefer B & B? The Old Dairy is a double en-suite where you’ll be provided with continental breakfast. And….it’s only a short 10 minute walk over the field into the town itself. Love it!
It’s all the brainchild of owner Caroline Weaver, who took over the farm ten years ago and decided to diversify from cattle to camping, setting up the fab campsite and each year adding another wagon to the fleet. She even restored the Old Shepherds hut where her grandmother used to put the horses harnesses in when she was a little girl.
Right, ready to book, Mudsters?
