‘Eco-Glamping’ at The Farm Camp: Editor’s Pick of the Week
An Eco-Glamping Experience near Bath
Travel deep into the English countryside for the ultimate eco-glamping experience at The Farm Camp.
This is a place that totally reinvents the traditional camping experience; there’s no need to ‘rough it’ in a mouldy old tent, This is eco-glamping! The Farm Camp has luxurious bell tents kitted out with futons, fresh linen, and log-burning fires.
During your stay, get out and about in the local area – take a tour of a professional stables, hike along the Kennet and Avon Canal, or visit a vineyard for some sophisticated wine-tasting. If you’d rather chill back at the camp, there are massages, yoga, and a heated indoor pool to enjoy. You can even try your hand at sheep herding, one of the world’s most ancient arts!
After a day of adventure, return to the tent and drift off into a deep sleep as the owls hoot in the woodlands around you. Perfect.
You’ll have everything you need to enjoy an independent self-catering stay, with cooking equipment, towels, and the use of the camp kitchen all included in the price. Plus, you’ll even be provided with cool boxes!
Remember, this is ‘eco-glamping’, not regular camping. Be sure to make the most of the hot showers, and visit the camp’s excellent communal spaces, including an intriguing ‘egg shelter’…Putting the ‘Eco’ into ‘Eco-Glamping’
Each tent has its own low-impact compost toilet, while the camp’s indoor swimming pool is heated using a biomass boiler. The camp itself has designed and made using recycled materials found around the farm, and today the management try to encourage guests to embrace the ‘off-grid’ lifestyle. Eco Companion journalist Laura Fairbourn included The Farm Camp on her list of ‘6 havens for a digital detox’.
