Re: Kempsford Camping

One of the things they did for a few years which may be useful these days was to offer half-sized pitches. As it is now, you'll often see a whole 9m x 11m ( or whatever it is ) pitch occupied by a single one-man tent.....and I don't mean one pitched by the usual bunch solely to reserve it for their...

Good luck with getting a pitch, I just love the place. I know it's not cheap, but it's easily the best. :smile:

Not from what I have been told - sold out the last three years before new people got a chance - so even less chance this year!

How did you book this please - I tried their phone line and they said they are not taking bookings yet.

Also for those that used it this year is there car parking by the hotel?
