Luxury farm glamping with epic views, a 10-minute walk from the Thames

Built by sisters Monica and Fiona, this Chilterns glamping site is a real family affair, with considered touches at every turn. Set on their father’s working farm, complete with lambs, tractors and a combine harvester, it offers a real chance to bed down in the Thames Valley and have that countryside experience, despite being less than 30 minutes from Reading and Oxford and an hour from central London.

The farm forms a spectacular backdrop but, rest assured, you won’t be required to muck in – unless you want to. This is your opportunity to snuggle down in a grassy meadow with easterly views across the valley, making your home in one of their bell tents, luna tents or the lovingly restored farm shepherds hut that's tucked away in the trees edging the meadow. Every comfort is provided. Fiona and Monica have lovingly applied all the luxury little extras you might need, like fluffy towels and fire-effect electric heaters, while, a short stroll away, each has its own allocated bathroom with a hot shower and flushing loo.

Gaining a little insight into farm life is always fascinating, but there’s plenty of opportunity for you to explore the local offerings too. The village of Moulsford kisses the banks of the Thames, where you can stride out on the Thames Path (passing less than a mile from the site), hire a boat to cruise the river or, if you’re looking for something more high octane, try a spot of wakeboarding 20 minutes’ drive upstream. There’s also fishing close by, so if you’re a budding Paul Whitehouse, be sure to head down to Goring Lock for a spot of angling in a timeless and much-painted setting more than worthy of a scene in his TV series.

While aptly named Rolling Fields is grand, spacious and offers maximum comfort, you can really up the levels to stately with a visit to Highclere Castle (the setting for Downton Abbey), a 30-minute drive away. In summer, the filmic estate is opened to the public, including the castle, an Egyptian exhibition and the extensive, manicured gardens – there’s even a ‘real life film set’ tour if you’re an avid Downton fan. Blenheim Palace, the perfect place for romantic walks and family picnics, is around the same distance away (in the opposite direction). And if you can’t be doing with the pomp, then just bring your walking boots and keep it local – the Chilterns stretch away to the east, the North Wessex downs to the west and a nearby footpath leads you over Mouslford Downs to join the scenic Ridgeway National Trail.

Facilities

Tents feature a proper double bed for two and additional camp beds for any extras. They have all the bedding and equipment you need, including in-tent heaters, hot-water bottles, plates, glasses, cutlery, a kettle, cooking utensils and a small fridge. If you need high chairs, travel cots and changing mats for your little ones, these can be requested prior to your arrival. The shepherd’s hut is in the woods and has similar equipment and a fitted bed for two (again, all bedding is provided). Each glamping unit has its own allocated bathroom with a hot shower and flushing toilet. There is a drinking water tap on site, a washing up area (with hot water and detergent) and a communal firepit with three gas BBQs. On arrival take advantage of the wheelbarrows to move your belongings from the car park to the tent.

Suitable For

If you love the countryside, getting in touch with nature, stunning walks, the river, getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life then this is the place for you. Whether you are couple wanting a romantic weekend away, keen walkers or a group of friends with your families, this the place to come. There is so much to do in the area whatever your age or interests.

We don't cater for hen or stag dos and unfortunately are not wheelchair accessible at this time, due to the size of the bathrooms and the raised showers.

Nearby

We are lucky to be surrounded by natural beauty and have an abundance of wildlife on the farm. You can expect to see Red Kites soar overhead, hear the owls hoot at night, see sheep grazing in the meadow and if you look carefully you will often see hare and deer roaming in a field.
You are able to walk to both neighbouring villages, Goring-on-Thames and Cholsey, within an hour or if you are wanting a bigger walk, you have the Berkshire/Chiltern Downs on your doorstep which has stunning views along The Ridgeway!

Alternatively, if you prefer a flatter walk, you can follow The Thames Path which provides excellent walking in either direction.

We also have plenty of National Trust sites around.

The Owner Says

About Rolling Fields Glamping

We are two sisters, Monica and Fiona, and we both grew up on this farm. During Spring and Summer, you will be able to see sheep with their lambs in the field and combines and tractors busy collecting harvest.

Luna and Bell Tents

We have 2 beautiful 5-metre Luna Tents, which with the added height, really do make you feel like you are in luxury and also 2 gorgeous traditional bell tents. These can take between 3-4 guests each . They all have bedding and towels provided, including lovely warm duvets to keep you cosy. The tents have an electric fire stove inside to keep you warm on a chilly night and also their own outside seating area and brazier to have a fire and toast some marshmallows.

Shepherds Hut

Our Shepherd’s Hut has been lovingly renovated by our step-brother Simon. This contains a small double bed, perfect for snuggling up to your loved one on a chilly night.

The Shepherds hut is just nestled in the woods on the side of the field, giving it a slightly different feel to the tents. The hut has its own outside seating area and a more private outside area in the woods for you to sit with a fire.

What We Provide

Bedding and towels, hot water bottles, blankets, plates, glasses, cutlery, a kettle, cooking utensils and a small fridge for each unit. A washing up area with hot running water. There is drinking water on site from a designated tap. There are 2 wheelbarrows available to move your belongings from the car park to the tent.

Each tent has its own allocated bathroom, with hot showers and flushing toilets giving you complete privacy.

There is a communal fire pit and 3 x Gas BBQs for anyone to use. One bag of wood will be provided, though you are welcome to purchase more at £7 a load. Please bear in mind that we are not based onsite, therefore you will need to arrange this with us earlier in the day.

High chairs, travel cots and changing mats are available upon request.

Social Distancing Measures

All of our accommodations are at least 10 meters apart from each other. They all have their own allocated bathrooms so you don't have to share any toilets or showers with other guests. We have provided each unit with its own fridge and cooking utensils and all units received a deep clean in between guests leaving and new ones arriving.  Every accommodation also has their own outdoor brazier to have a fire.

The only shared facilities are 3 outdoor gas BBQs, an outdoor washing up area, a communal fire pit set away from the accommodation and the wheelbarrows to move belongings between your accommodation and car. We have provided hand sanitising areas are these points and also disinfectant spray.
