We were recently lucky enough to spend a few nights at Hedsor Field Camping. We took the theme of the moment- staycation very literally! Being lucky enough to live within the beautiful countryside of Buckinghamshire we didn’t even have to travel 2 miles to reach our destination. However, had we had to travel further it would certainly have been worth it.
Set in an elevated position within 13 acres of beautiful countryside, flanked by woodland and a wildflower strip it is the perfect spot to wind down. With a laid back approach, appropriate to the surroundings, dogs and children are welcome. We enjoyed camp fires, BBQs, and kite flying. The children thrived on the freedom Hedsor Field Camping gave them and my three young daughters soon made friends with the other children on site.
The facilities were perfect for us. Beautifully clean showers & toilets, food vans in the evenings at the weekend & coffee in the morning. The on site shop was well stocked with treats and essentials- including an emergency bottle of ketchup when we’d forgotten ours.
By day, the area has plenty to offer. From local country pubs, to Odds Farm Park and Bekonscot Model village there is plenty to keep families busy. Rail and road access to London is simple if you fancy a day in the city.
Our dogs were also made very welcome. With a dedicated dog station offering water and waste facilities, our hosts were fully prepared for our four legged friends. All dogs must be kept on lead. This works well for us. Even though we have plenty of dogs at home, neither my children or dogs appreciate unfamiliar dogs bounding up to them. I should imagine this is the same for most families. Wash Hill Wood and Farm Wood, adjacent to the camp site, provided plenty of space to stretch their legs and engage their noses. The children watched Red Kites soaring overhead and Muntjac Deer through clearings in the trees. At night we heard owls and caught glimpses of bats flitting through the darkness.
We enjoyed ourselves so much that we ended up adding an extra night.
Whilst you will need to get in quickly for this season it was a must for anyone local or from further afield!
