Tucked away from mainstream life, this is a place where the stress melts away. The safari tent we hired was brilliantly equipped for a three generation family. Children aged between 2 and 10. Comfortable beds, cosy duvets, well equipped kitchen hot and cold water. Excellent shower and a "compost loo" that didn't smell. The kids enjoyed just being able to... More

We have been to Dernwood once before - The last time (2013) we spent 3 nights in the wild camping field and had a thoroughly good time strolling around, eating good food and enjoying some excellent weather. This year, we thought we'd upgrade and reserved the 'Sycamore' plot in the Encampment. The location is gorgeous - deep in the woods... More

From our previous visits a couple of years ago to our last visit the weekend just gone, Dernwood farm has gone from strength to strength with new camping areas and new much needed showers. Like last time we chose the wild camping area which is a great size and even on a beautiful June weekend at no point felt overcrowded... More

Dernwood Farm is a great place to spend some time in the country. We went "wild camping" and found the site to be perfect. We went as a couple but the site is perfect for those with young children who want an authentic and safe way to experience camping. The great thing about wild camping at the site is that... More

My son and I visited Dernwood Farm for just 1 night as it was our first time camping together and we wanted to choose somewhere fairly close to home in case we had any disasters. We booked "wild camping" for a Tuesday during half term and all I can say is that we had a wonderful time, the campsite was... More

What a great place....could not be more friendly and helpful....great ethos Rif Raf kept away by small amount of effort required to reach camp field. A few more taps would make life easier and loos would struggle at peak times We will be going back

This is the second time we've stayed in The Encampment having been when it first opened last year .. This time we brought friends having heard me rave on about it.. Staying in the encampment feels like you've got the whole of the woods to yourselves.. Other than the wildlife you can hear virtually nothing and the woods make a... More

This location is truly a magical one. Foxes, deer, badgers amidst the bluebells, squirrels playing tag and oh that dawn chorus when the birds become active! The owners themselves are very enthusiastic and couldn't have been more friendly and obliging. Not so much a place to get away, but a place to return to that essence which so often eludes... More

Even though there were approx 20 tents , it didnt feel busy as the area is huge. Its location is very suitable if you stay in london or nearby.The only downside... More

This is a beautiful place, children and dog friendly. Wild camping at its best. Toilets and showers available. Campfires are allowed, you can buy kindling and logs from the shop. Camp shop is well stocked too. Booked this via pitchup.com and they advised cash only but they do accept cards on site. Lovely lady on reception, made us feel very... More
