Best campsite in the UK – according to our campers

Best campsite in the UK?

“Best campsite in the UK”, “best campsite ever”, “a great find” – just some of the comments from campers who have stayed with us. Beech Estate Woodland Campsite has proved a great success with campers, families, couples and groups. After opening in 2012 we made it into Cool Camping’s 2013 book of recommended campsites after just one season.

Reading some of the campers comments and feedback who have pitched their own tents or camped in our bell tents we are starting to feel pretty happy that we have created a laid back camping space for families, with areas for groups and quiet pitches for couples – the best campsite in the UK, according to some of our campers.

In May 2013 we even hosted a lovely campsite wedding – complete with bluebells, bell tents, bunting and a mini festival vibe.

Since our original post, Beech Estate Woodland Campsite has gone from strength to strength and is now one of the most highly rated campsites on Cool Camping’s website and was number three in The Times 30 best places to camp in the UK.

You can check out the latest reviews of our campsite on our Campers’ Comments page but here are a few reviews that made us wonder, back in 2013, if Beech Estate Woodland Campsite was the best campsite in the UK…
