Group Camping

Badger and Fox Camp can both be hired for the exclusive use of your group. They are adjacent and identical, so can be booked together for larger groups. Both camps are set far away from other guests and have their own facilities making them perfect for groups of families, school groups, DofE and scouts.

About your pitch

Both Badger and Fox Camp sit on the far end of the meadow, well away from our other guests, giving you the seclusion and space to enjoy your holiday.  Each Camp has its own kitchen, dining and bathroom facilities as well as a stone fire pit. The camps are large so there is plenty of space to enjoy a game of cricket before settling down to a BBQ and roasting marshmallows over the campfire.

Frequent Questions

Common questions people ask before camping at Night Pastures. 

The space
Night Pastures is very private and you are surrounded by farmland and woodland. One end of the field (nearest the car parking area) is dedicated to adult camping and glamping, leaving the top part of the meadow for free-range camping, whether as an individual family (on Fox Camp) or as an exclusive use group camp (Badger & Fox Camp)
How do the bookings work?
Badger and Fox Camps can be booked for group bookings via our website but it’s often worth reaching out to discuss your plans with us in advance as we have had many years of experience with groups and know what works well. A single ‘lead booker’ takes full responsibility for the group and pays for the booking upfront. They are then responsible for communicating check-in information and distributing our welcome pack so that everyone staying on-site knows how we operate and where to find things. We take a £500 deposit at check-in from all groups to ensure that the lead booker takes responsibility for ensuring that the group follows the site rules with special reference to late-night noise as it’s really important to us that one person’s fun doesn’t stop someone else’s enjoyment of the site.
Can i have a campfire?
We think campfires are essential to any camping trip! Campers are able to rent fire bowls and purchase logs in advance if they wish to have their own fire but there are communal fire pits in each camp which are free for you to enjoy as a group. Campers are welcome to bring their own fire bowls provided they are raised over 12″ from the ground.  Foraging for wood in our ancient woodland is strictly forbidden.
Can we have a BBQ?
Yes! Both Fox and Badger Camps are equipped with their own large charcoal ‘barrel’ BBQ and charcoal can be purchased on-site or ordered in advance. For those who prefer to cook over gas, we also have a gas BBQ available to hire for a small charge.
What's the minimum stay?

When hired for exclusive use, both Fox and Badger Camps have a 2-night minimum stay with 3 nights over bank holiday weekends.

Can I have food delivered?

As a small family business, we don’t have staff on site all the time to meet delivery drivers and Night Pastures can be tricky for them to find. You are welcome to order a food delivery but must give your mobile number as a contact and ensure that you are waiting at the gate during the delivery window.

What's your cancellation policy?

Under our cancellation policy we offer:

  • A full refund if written or emailed cancellation is received by us no later than 6 weeks before your holiday is due to start
  • A 50% refund if written or emailed cancellation is received by us between 6 and 4 weeks prior to your holiday start date and
  • No refund, if written or emailed cancellation, is received by us later than 4 weeks before the holiday start date unless we can re-let the accommodation, in which case an administration charge of 20% (of the total cost of your holiday booking) will apply.
Do you take Campervans, trailer tents, roof tents and caravans?

The simple answer is ‘sometimes’. Vehicles (of any kind) are prohibited from entering the Night Pastures meadow but occasionally, we can find space for you but this will be away from the main camps so you would not be camping with your group. Please email if you wish to discuss options

The country code

Night Pastures Camping is on a working family farm so please respect the Country Code at all times – leave no trace, close gates & do not disturb animals or their habitats. Children MUST be supervised by a responsible adult at all times to ensure their safety and prevent damage to property – there is a pond and stream near the camping area that you need to be aware of if travelling with small children. There is no Wifi or electricity on site. Each family pitch sleeps up to 6 guests (some of whom must be children) in a single tent. Additional guests and tents by prior arrangement only.

What facilities are available for campers?
    The camp kitchen includes a gas cooking stove, kettle and sink with running water. There is also a large ice box in each camp for campers to share but sadly we are unable to provide ice bricks or freeze ice bricks for it – we simply dont have the electricity supply! Each camp has 2 compost loos and 2 hot showers as well as a stone fire pit and covered eating area incase of rain.
    Supervising Children

    Night Pastures Camping is on a working family farm so please respect the Country Code at all times – leave no trace, close gates & dont disturb animals or their habitats. Children MUST be supervised by a responsible adult at all times to ensure their safety and prevent damage to property, this includes our woodland areas – there is a pond and stream nearby that you need to be aware of if travelling with small children.

    Do you accept dogs?

    Historically, we have not accepted dogs at Night Pastures but with effect from 2024, we are happy to welcome a restricted number of dogs in our camping areas. Please email before making your booking if you wish to bring your dog. There is no additional charge for bringing your dog. The following rules apply to all doggy guests at Night Pastures:-


    1. Dogs must be on a lead & under control at all times
    2. Dogs are not allowed in any of the glamping units, communal bathrooms or kitchens
    3. Maximum of 2 dogs per camp by prior arrangement only

    5. Dogs that continually bark, are aggressive or disturb other guests will be asked to leave the site immediately with no refunds given
    6. Dogs that are on the dangerous dogs list (and cross breeds thereof) are not permitted on site
    What are your arrival and departure times?

    We are happy to welcome group booking guests from 3pm. Camping is a self-service check-in. On arrival simply follow the signs to your Camp. Once in your camp, you can pitch your tent wherever you want, remembering there is plenty of space so you don’t need to be too near your neighbour! We have mown areas for your ease. The map in the online welcome pack will help you locate your camp.

    During peak times we have back-to-back bookings so we ask you to kindly vacate your pitch by the agreed time so as to give us a chance to make it lovely again for the next guest.

    What time can i party to?

    Night Pastures is a very quiet and tranquil site where people come to enjoy the restorative benefits of nature and the valley we are in resonates noise for miles around, we therefore have a strict 10pm curfew and ask that all noise is kept to a minimum after this time. Amplified music (including portable speakers) is strictly prohibited. Any guest or group causing a disturbance to other guests will be asked to leave the site immediately. Our site manager patrols the site  at 10pm nightly to ensure that this rule is enforced

    Is there parking?

    Parking is available in the field adjacent to Night Pastures and access to the Camps is via a short walk across the field. You can unload your car from the drop-off zone by the gate where you will find wheelbarrows to help you move your luggage. Once unloaded, we ask that you move your car back to the main parking area to the right past the garages. For those staying at Fox & Badger Camp, there is a second cut-through at the top of the parking field. Please refer to the site map included in the guest welcome pack.

    Please note that in order to preserve Night Pastures unique environment and meadow habitat, driving up to your camp to unload is strictly prohibited. Baggage transfers by ATV can sometimes be pre-booked in advance. Please contact

    Electricity and Wifi
    As an off-grid site, no mains electricity is available for campers to charge phones, so we advise you to bring portable power packs if you need to stay connected throughout your stay. A stay at Night Pastures is all about switching off so we have consciously decided not to offer WiFi to our guests however there are 4G and 5G signals in parts of the field so you won’t be completely cut off. There is no lighting at Night Pastures so torches and camping lights are essential items for campers to bring with them.
    Anything else I should know?

    Badger and Fox Camps are quite a walk from the drop-off area and this can be hard work if you are bringing very large tents and lots of equipment. It is not possible to drive cars onto the meadow at any time.

    Happy Campers


    Incredible, the pace is HUGE it was so quiet but there was so much space that my three kids could run around on the far side of the field and not trouble a soul.
