Sociable camping and glamping on the edge of the Cotswolds, within easy reach of Bath and Bristol

With green hills, clear streams, cute villages and country pubs, the Cotswolds has a reputation for being rather lovely. So whether you’re looking for camping or glamping in the area, you’ll no doubt be after somewhere that lives up to that reputation. How about Cotswold Meadow Camping then?

Situated on a dairy farm just outside the market town of Chipping Sodbury, it certainly is rather lovely. It has just five spacious grass camping pitches and another five options for glampers. It’s a relatively simple set-up with off-grid pitches and campfires allowed. But it’s not quite back to basics here thanks to flushing loos, hot showers and the site’s Gathering Barn. The barn offers an open-sided but undercover space for cooking, eating and generally hanging out. It’s mostly used by glampers; the occupants of the site’s four Lotus belle tents and single dinky shepherd’s hut. It’s a great space with gas hobs, fridges, freezers and wooden dining tables that mean serving up supper is easy, whatever the weather.

With cooking facilities taken care of elsewhere, the pre-erected Lotus belle tents and the little shepherd’s hut are uncluttered and comfortable sleeping spaces. Three of the tents are kitted out with beds and bedding for four, one (Maple) is offered unfurnished and the shepherd’s hut is just for two. All of them have solar and battery-powered lighting, outside seating and a fire pit for nights under the stars.

Everything you need is within walking distance of the site. There’s the market town of Chipping Sodbury, a mile and a half across the common, where there are plenty of shops, eateries and no less than eight pubs. In the other direction, there’s a single good one in the village of Old Sodbury, which offers a little more charm. Of course there’s plenty more of that in the honey-stone villages of the Cotswolds; Lacock and Castle Combe are two of the best and a short drive away. This area has long been regarded as a place for quintessentially English countryside getaways and whether you like walking, running, cycling or horseriding, all are available in the vicinity. But with a location on the southern side of the Cotswolds, it’s also close enough for day trips to Bath and Bristol. Both are just 30 minutes away, making Cotswold Meadow Camping not just rather lovely, but rather convenient too.
