Description

The 3rd Pasture is our original camping field. Cars are left in the parking area, which is a couple of minutes’ walk away, and wheelbarrows are provided to help you carry your gear. If it’s available, you can have a lift in our lightweight buggy – this doesn’t damage the grass and can carry all of your gear down to the camping area.

As you approach on foot from the car park you pass the animal paddocks on the right. At the top of the 3rd Pasture you have beautiful views across Woodchester Park towards Amberley and the common land at Minchinhampton and Rodborough. The 3rd Pasture has a large flat area (the ‘main pitch’), the west end of which is flanked by other flat camping areas. As the field winds to the west the pitching areas narrow and are surrounded by woodland. There are lovely little pitching spots in some of the banks and woodland edges, perfect for single tents or small groups. Through a hedge to the north of the main pitch is the ‘badger site’. This year (2015) the badger site will not be reserved for groups and anyone can camp there and use its firepits.
