Welcome to Thistledown Farm! Thistledown is an organically managed family farm near Stroud, in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our farm covers 70 acres of pastureland, woodland and elderflower orchard, and borders Woodchester Park. We offer three different areas for camping, two of which are car-free. The fields have plenty of space and every tent can have their own campfire.

We hope that you find our website easy to use and informative. If you have any questions then do let us know. It is usually easier to contact us via email than phone, especially out of season. You can also keep in touch with us on Facebook and Twitter.

To book please visit the Camping section above, and ensure that you’ve read The Rules. You might also find it useful to read Map & Arrival. The Your Stay section tells you what to expect onsite during your visit, lists places of interest in the local area, and offers campfire tips and recipes. Lots of information about our farm can be found under About. The What’s On category has a calendar of courses and events at Thistledown, as well as offsite events that we feel may be of interest to campers. We now have a farm shop and we are working on our clay oven – please see the pages under Shop & Café for information regarding opening times, suppliers and stock. The News page has details of updates and developments at Thistledown.
