Location + Surroundings
Guests can come and share this special place, experience the peace of the historic land and the sounds of nature, where they can enjoy stargazing the dark night sky, watching the meteor showers without light pollution from the ancient stone circle.
The campsite is designed for those looking for a peaceful, rustic, outdoor experience, surrounded by nature and history.
To camp, glampers can bring their own tent or van or hire one of our Bell Tents, Gypsy Caravan, Airstream or Yurt.
