We planted a new 5-acre woodland in 2015, it has been our occasional family campsite and now we're pleased to share it with you. We manage the woodland for conservation and wildlife. It's suitable for groups of up to 14 people, you will have exclusive use of the site for your stay.

The space
You have a sunny south-facing clearing to pitch your tents, 37m x 13m of grass with five small fruit trees.
Just outside the clearing it a sink with running water, a compost toilet and a cold water shower.
There’s a fire pit and we’ll provide a sack of fire wood.
There’s no electricity supply on site, some solar lighting is provided but this is essentially a wilderness camping experience with the essential facilities added.
This site is for tents only, no vehicles are allowed on site. Parking is immediately outside the entrance to the field and there’s a 60m walk to the camping area (largely level but with a short gentle downhill slope as you enter the field). We provide wheelbarrows to make your arrival easy.

Butcombe New Woods is a 5 acre site (that’s 4.53 football fields) which was planted as a new native woodland by the owner in conjunction with The Woodland Trust in 2015. It’s growing well and is being managed for conservation. Along with the trees it supports wild flowers, grasses and wildlife including deer, badgers, rabbits and many birds. Look out for glow worms too just after dark. The site forms part of a continuous natural habitat with the Blagdon Lake estate of over 440 acres classed as an SSSI.

The site is surrounded on three sides by farm fields generally used for sheep. The fourth side is a wooded valley with a stream leading to Blagdon Lake (about 300m away)
