MORE ABOUT THE CAMPSITE
The Mushroom Farm Campsite feels like a proper pioneering camp. You'll be completely off-grid on the edge of an 11-acre mushroom farm in the beautiful Rutland countryside. This is not a manicured site and you’ll be sharing it with wildlife – frequent visitors include songbirds, red kites, kestrels, owls, bats, lizards, frogs and toads, snakes, rabbits and hares, muntjac deer, mice, foxes, dragonflies, butterflies, moths and beetles.
Only a 15-minute drive away from Rutland Water, and 20 minutes to Belvoir Castle there is so much to see and do in Rutland.
WHERE IS THE FARM?
The Farm is located at the end of School Lane in the quiet country village of Thistleton, Rutland.
HOW TO ACCESS THE SITE
The site is secured by a gate and lock. Guests are given a number code for the gate.
ARE THE HOSTS ON SITE?
No, but the hosts are available by phone and are only a 10-minute drive away if you have any problems. Contact Abi on 07450 864 256 or Sharon on 07770 914 629.
WHAT ARE THE TENTS LIKE?
Off-grid it may be, but nevertheless there are a few creature comforts on hand. Each spacious pitch has a canvas tent with a proper double mattress (bedding and towels included) plus camp beds for the kids (please bring a roll mat, sleeping bag and towels for any extra children).
WHAT ELSE IS ON THE PITCH?
Outside, there’s a spot for campfires, a cooking shelter, gas stove, kitchen utensils and crockery. Each pitch has it's very own private bucket shower, composting toilet and solar lights. Fresh water is provided in large water containers.
IS THE CAMPSITE SUITABLE FOR ANYONE?
The camp is set on a mushroom farm with the young trees and large areas left to rewild. This means flowering thistles and uneven ground so it may not be suitable for babies, very young children or people with health conditions.
WHAT'S THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PEOPLE?
Our pitches are very spacious so if you're family is a little bigger or you want to bring along a few friends there's space for extra tents. Get in touch to let us know your requirements and we'll see how we can accommodate you.
