The Simple Pleasures!

Our small campsite enjoys open views of the farmland and gentle rolling countryside beyond, with large grass tent pitches. There are also electric hook ups (EHU) available on some of the pitches, so you can enjoy some luxury camping. The site is surrounded with newly planted hornbeam hedges and native trees, to benefit both the wildlife and campers alike. You will be able to enjoy the many birds and mammals that live here on the farm, and marvel at the bats performing aerial acrobatics in the evenings! Plus as this is a Dark Skies designated area, you can stargaze at night – you may even see some shooting stars!

Your comfort is important, so there are toilet cabins (not composting) and a mains electric shower cabin located on site, along with an area for washing-up and a secure mobile phone charging area. There is ample parking on site for cars and bikes located at the edge of the site. A local bus service operates from just 10mins walk down the road, connecting nearby towns, villages and the main railway station. We are also located close to many cycle and long distance walking routes, so cyclists and walkers are very welcome to stay on site!

Unfortunately we do not accept dogs.

No motorhomes, campervans, trailer tents or roof tents.

Season April - October

During your stay you are welcome to join us on the farm to see the lambs in spring and say hello to the pigs and ponies. We are lucky enough to be close to some amazing beaches and tourist attractions, and have some great country walks right here on the doorstep. There’s always something different to see and experience.

We believe at the shepherd’s rest that your holiday with us is an opportunity to unwind, enjoy the beautiful surrounding and reconnect with them. So we don’t supply Wi-Fi on site (although a 4G signal is available).

Being a small site with limited capacity, it is advisable to book in advance to avoid disappointment – please Contact Us to reserve your pitch.

Hope to see you soon!

Absolutely beautiful campsite. There’s only a few pitches so you’re not all squeezed in, the views are gorgeous. The facilities are clean and cleaned regularly through the day. The toilets are in line of sight and individual so I felt happy letting my kids go on their own.

We camped at Shepherd's Rest for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner gave us a nice welcome on arrival and the site was clean and quiet. Facilities were superb and included access to a hot and powerful shower, washing up station with hot water and phone charging points.

We had a wonderful camping holiday in the summer. The location is beautiful with country walks and stunning sunrises and sunsets. The ablutions were lovely and clean. There are only 3 bathrooms but we didn't have to queue for more than 10 minutes to have a shower as all the guests were considerate. This is a stunning location, really relaxing, beautiful beeches nearby.

I have stayed at this campsite twice in the last month. Most recently have been combining my work (locally) with a family holiday. Alison and Mark are extremely welcoming and have been very accommodating with my unknown dates for arrival and departure.
