Immerse yourself in nature
About this micro camping
Our campspace is all about the wildlife. Since we embarked on our rewilding adventure in 2000, the re-emergence of nature has been astonishing. Our Wildland is now a hotspot for stunning purple emperor butterflies, and a breeding ground for numerous other rare species from nightingales to turtle doves, bats to dung-beetles, fungi to water violets – as well as home to burgeoning populations of our more common species of flora and fauna. That’s what welcomes you at our Wildland campsite – the sense not just of camping out in beautiful countryside but of being immersed in an extraordinary revival of wildlife. It’s an experience that we hope will inspire, inform and lift the spirits. Tranquil, beautifully designed, eco-friendly and surrounded by stunning wild countryside our campsite is perfect for a quiet break away from it all.
