Bedgebury Camping is a campsite for tents and campervans
Bedgebury Camping is a campsite that allows tent camping alongside those in campervans. If your group comprises of both tents and campervans, rest assured that you will not be allocated to different parts of the campsite, but can pitch together in a formation that works best for both in one of our grass fields. Campervans need to be booked and paid for as a 'domestic vehicle' with the vehicle registration details logged appropriately on the booking system, but other than that there is nothing else to do. For those bringing tents, we do not actually need to know the number of tents at the time of booking.
At Bedgebury Camping we operate on a first-come basis for camping spots within allocated fields. We don't have specific pitches for your booking so once you are in your pre-allocated field, you are free to pick the spot which best suits you given the current occupants. We are able to offer large camping pitches due to the size of the camping fields.
We are able to offer areas for family camping and adult groups. We also have a few woodland areas for small group camping.
Based on the number of people in your group and their own requirements, here are a few general points to consider when you arrive on site:
Pitching near a loo
- Pros: Good for children and late night trips
- Cons: Being passed en-route by other campers
Pitching near a mains water tap
- Pros: Convenient for cooking and cups of tea or coffee
- Cons: Other campers will be using the taps causing some distraction
Pitching near the entrance to the field
- Pros: Easier access, especially if the field becomes muddy
- Cons: Traffic driving passed on entering and exiting the field
Pitching at the back of the field
- Pros: Not so much traffic driving past your pitch
- Cons: Further from the main facilities and potentially more difficult to exit in wet weather
Pitching in the middle of the field
- Pros: Sunshine all day and less likely to have neighbours
- Cons: No shade and feeling exposed particularly in windy weather
Pitching along the sides of a field
- Pros: Increased privacy and shade afforded if backing on to trees
- Cons: Shade from trees leading to reduced warmth in tent, as well as possible twigs and leaves falling on to tent
Pitching near the stream
- Pros: Great for playing in and catching small fish. Some campers have even used the stream as a drinks cooler!
- Cons: Children will need to be supervised at all times when near water
Pitching in the woods
- Pros: Fantastic in warm weather with few neighbours
- Cons: Can feel cold and dark in wet weather
