Our story – how it all started….
Having recently moved from Bath, Chris and Amy wanted to set up a Camping & Glamping site in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside. Our vision is to create a haven where our guests can kick back, chill and reconnect with friends and family.
Escape To The Fields is a beautiful opportunity to step away from technology and reconnect with friends, loved ones and each other. Time spent in nature with good company is great for your physical and mental health. So why not put down the phone and the iPad, light a fire pit and enjoy conversation with a cold beer from the local brewery, or a cheeky gin and tonic.
During the day you can spoil yourself with lots of outside activities from kayaking and more at nearby South Cerney Lakes (c.20mins), walking or trail running along the many footpaths in the area, cycling (road and MTB) – there is plenty to keep you entertained.
There’s a wide variety of attractions nearby, such as the Avebury Stone Circle World Heritage site (the World’s largest stone circle), or Lydiard Park a beautiful historic House and Estate of 260 acres. For those of you looking for some retail therapy, you can venture to the nearby MacArthur Glen Outlet village in Swindon.
If relaxing is more your vibe, then feel free to say hello to our sheep and lambs, plus our resident Alpaca! For those with an interest in wildlife, we frequently see Muntjac deer, Roe deer, Red Kites, Buzzards and a pair of Greater Spotted Woodpeckers at the site. You can see some of them in our Gallery.
In the evening, we have a cookout station with two BBQ’s and a number of picnic benches to enjoy a chilled summer evening. We also have a three-sided barn with sofas where you can kick back whatever the weather, put your feet up and chill – all with a view of the Broad Town White Horse.
We are incredibly lucky to have Broad Town Brewery just a few minutes’ walk down the road! They have a large outdoor terrace where you can sample some of their incredible brews. Throughout the summer they have visiting street food vendors on a Thursday-Saturday evening!
We also have a number of great Pubs nearby in Royal Wootton Bassett, including The Angel Hotel and the more traditional thatched Five Bells. Not far from us we also have The Crown at Broad Hinton and The Winterbourne at Winterbourne Bassett, all less than five mins drive away.
