Following on to Itzal's idea of a list of recommended campsites, please use this thread only to post recommended campsites.

It would be appreciated if the list could be kept simple, though a bit of information about the site you recommend would be good :D
One post per site is the idea, and not a thread filled with masses of conversation or multiple recommendations, regardless of how much we like the place :D

That said, if we can find a way to add extra people's recs to the individual listings, I think that would be good too. Sort of a popularity rating.
I don't see how just now, but I'll ask Admin to have a looksee and let us know if it can be done.

I'm pretty sure we have done similar threads in the past but let's bring it up to date and post the ones we know are good (or still good) now :)

cheers,
Toddy

Recommended by most of the Scots in the Central Belt :D

Eco camping in good clean fields, there's a hostel that will rent individual beds or rooms, katas, an entire wooded hillside for hammocks, excellent loos and showers, really great staff. Usually a parachute up with a firespace set up below, and bags of logs for sale at a very reasonable price.

Situated in the middle of Perthshire, it's a lovely bit of the world, ospreys fly along the river valley below :)
The site is busy in Summer, but a lot quieter out of the school holiday season.

They have a hall and byres for rent too, for workspace.

cheers,
M

It is great, been going there for a few years. Not the cheapest but perfect for bushcrafters.

Not sure if Camping Barns qualify... If so Catbells Camping Barn Low Skelgill up the Newlands valley near Keswick in the Lakes is very nice....

Friendly owner..

Piping hot water and decent shower and a great location... Also a really excellent coal fire in the barn....

We based ourselves at the campsite adjoining Adam Henson's (of Countryfile fame) Park Farm for a long weekend.

http://cotswoldfarmpark.co.uk/camping/

It's small and familiy-friendly (not the place if you want a wild booze-up with your mates). The facilities were fine, and the staff friendly, and the pitches were a generous size.

We didn;t visit the Farm, but went on some of the local walks, which were suitable for novices like ourselves.

One word of warning - the local pubs we looked in were bl**dy expensive, £3.50 a pint and £8.00 a sandwich... :eek:
