Mill Farm, Barton Road, Long Compton, Shipston-on-Stour, WarwickshireMill Farm campsite lies in the land that time forgot. You approach through a time warp of unkempt country lanes, and the farmyard and surrounding buildings are delightfully rustic. It's just a large, no-frills field in quiet scenery, and you can pitch where you want, when you want, and light a campfire where you want, when you want. Dogs, kids, and ball games are all embraced as part of the place's genuinely relaxed vibe. The family owners are welcoming and happy to help with anything you need, including photocopies of the local — very beautiful and unspoilt - dragonfly nature trail, named so for its shape. A 10-minute wander along the lane into Long Compton is a pleasant way to pass some time; pick up a paper, pop into the pub, or purchase some produce from a pavement stall.

If it's windy, pitching by the hedge gives good shelter. And lighting a fire adds to the warmth and ambience; settle near your own fire pit, or join someone else's - it's that kind of place. People come back year after year; one camper told us that it hasn't changed in the 30 years he's been visiting. And for that, we can all be very grateful.
