Woodminton Farm, Bowerchalke
Salisbury, Wiltshire, SP5 5DD
Can I bring a dog?
I’m afraid we do not allow dogs. Whilst we would love to allow dogs, we previously gave this a try, and it just didn’t work out with livestock on the farm. This is one of the only things we are quite strict on, so we really hope this doesn’t deter you from booking!
Do you have availability and what's the price?
This can be found under the booking menu.
When is check in and check out?
Check in is at 3.30pm onwards (if you could kindly let us know roughly what time you arrive, it would be a great help). Check out is at 11am prompt.
Are there any shops nearby?
There is a village shop selling essentials in Sixpenny Handley, which is a ten minute drive away. For several large supermarkets, Salisbury is approximately 11 miles away.
How far are the loos from the tents?
Not far at all! Probably not much further than you’d have to walk in a large house.
Can I park on site?
The parking area is next to the campsite. As we don’t allow cars onto the site (a condition of our planning consent), we provide a couple of wheelbarrows to transport your luggage the short distance to the tents.
Can I book a one night stay?
Our prices are based on 2 nights, however we do allow mid-week one night stays for an additional £20 on the base price.
Is there phone signal/electricity?
Due to the rural and idyllic nature of the site, there is no electricity – we think this adds to the experience. There are solar lights, battery powered fairy lights, two gas showers, and communal gas stove. Also we can hire out a small generator for music/lighting when the whole site is hired. Unfortunately phone signal on some networks is very limited, we suggest taking a map, or driving (or walking if you’re feeling fit!) to the top of the hill where the signal is excellent. You can also charge your phone/torches in the freezer shed at the farmyard, and you are welcome to make urgent phone calls from our landline.
Can we have camp fires, and if so, are they private?
Absolutely! This is part of the fun of camping, and we want to make sure your experience is as close to camping in the wild as possible (just without the bad bits!) Each tent has it’s own fire pit, with a table and chairs.
Can we pitch an extra tent?
If you are booking the entire site (6 tents), then yes at £15 per night per tent.
Can you recommend a pub?
Yes! The Horseshoe Inn at Ebbesbourne Wake is a traditional country pub, and accessible on foot (45 minute walk on footpaths).
Is there somewhere to keep food cool?
We supply each tent with a coolbox and ice packs. The ice packs can be exchanged using the freezer in the farmyard (half a mile from the site). There is also a small fridge at the farmyard.
Is the site accessible for disabled?
Our mission is to work with anyone who has a disability and to ensure we are providing any help we are able to – we strongly recommend giving us a call ahead of time and asking to speak to Fiona. Due to the off-grid nature of the site, there are areas that can be bumpy – we would recommend an off-road wheelchair for those with limited mobility. The tents are on wooden bases and require a small step to enter. The tent floor is carpeted. The mattresses are not raised above floor level. The loos and showers require one fairly large step, however we can provide a ramp if requested in advance of your stay. There are solar lights dotted around the site, however lack of electricity means torches are advisable.
Do we need to bring bedding?
A duvet, pillows, and blanket is included for the double mattress. Guests will need to bring bedding for the two single futons. We also strongly recommend bringing extra blankets during the cooler months of our season in May and September.
Can the tents sleep a 5th person?
The tents can sleep a maximum of 4 adults. However if you’re a family with 3 small children, there is enough space for an extra bed roll. These can be added during the booking process for £3 per night.
Do we provide cooking & BBQ utensils?
Yes – each tent is provided with crockery and BBQ tools. We also provide some basic pots and pans in the communal shelter. The communal kitchen has 2 gas hobs, a kettle, and sink.
Can we arrange a supermarket delivery to arrive before or during our stay?
Yes. Please contact us beforehand and we will provide instructions.
