The campsite is incredibly beautiful, we were able to choose an area with lots of space where we could have a campfire. The facilities are great and the staff, particularly the management, went above and beyond to make sure we had a great weekend. Will definitely be returning.

Great campsite with plenty of room. Myself and my family stayed for three days in August which we thoroughly enjoyed. We were with three other families and there was plenty of room for the children to run about. The pitches were enormous and well spread out. The staff were a great help with getting our equipment up and down the slopes....we stayed on field three and not easily accessible if you are physically impaired.
The composting toilets were as expected.
Only negative would be the showers however having chatted to the owner they are in the middle of resolving this issue.
We would thoroughly recommend.

I went for this site as from the reviews it looked a little more authentic and ‘wild camping like’. I didn’t want to be in a rectangular, flat farmers field surrounded by other tents in close proximity. This site was just perfect. It’s at quite an elevated location within the Cotswolds but occupies quite a diverse area. The reception, shop and cafe are located on the flat entrance to the site, nearer the road as is the orchard camping area. The site then gradually drops down a slope which Is terraced in places and is a mixture of wooded areas with pockets of grass which are nicely mowed with firepits scattered around. The great thing is you can pitch wherever takes your fancy. The only thing that limits you is if you want a fire pit (who wouldn’t when camping!) as you can’t create your own which is fair enough. There are loads scattered around. Other reviewers mention the steep slope and the fact you need to cart your stuff around. This is true to a point. However there are flat areas to pitch in all pastures but the further into the site you go the more it’s slopes off so it’s up to you. You can arrange for your stuff to be delivered to your tent for a fee or use the barrows which we did. The no cars aspect is brilliant. It adds to the wild feel. The sloping part of the site occupies a little private valley with a woodland opposite and access to the National trust Woodchester Park property/ grounds from the corner of the campsite. It’s a lovely little place to explore.
The sparse tent density is the really unique thing about this site. It felt like we had our own little field almost surrounded by woodland! The facilities are fine. Clean and good hot showers, composting toilets (not for everyone!) or portaloos. The shop and restaurant are very pleasant and in a lovely sunny spot. Good to have it a few minutes away from the pitch.
We walked to the local pub Rose & Crown for dinner one night. It’s a nice cosy Cotswolds pub and the food was good. You have to walk there via the lane which is a good mile or more and took us about 25 minutes from our tent. I’d definitely take a torch if doing it at night so cars can see you. The site is also only about five minutes drive from Nailsworth a decent sized Cotswolds town if you need anything.

Hard to find any negatives. If I was to choose one I might say the middle aged lady at reception had a slightly strange sense of humour - a chap walked in when I was checking in and asked if the croissants were for sale ( it wasn’t all that clear as there was no price near them and I guess they could’ve been ordered for a group) and she replied ‘well they’re not there for decoration are they’ or something on those lines. She didn’t seem particularly enthusiastic to be there and also didn’t seem to know that much about the surrounding area when I ask her about nearby places to eat / visit. Maybe she was having one of those days?!
However everyone else on the site were really lovely.

Definitely highly recommend and I’ll certainly be back. Many thanks.

This is a really beautiful eco friendly campsite. We camped in the orchard field as we have a campervan and were not able to camp in either of the other fields as no car access is permitted. The orchard is a really beautiful and quiet spot and you can choose any where to camp amongst the elderflower trees and even in summer holiday felt very secluded and relaxing. Staff are very helpful and friendly. We were looking forward to trying out the cafe but unfortunately it was closed every day we were there due to Covid which was a real shame.
The campsite has a very relaxed feel and you are able to have fire pits which is lovely. Site staff come round with fire wood to purchase every evening
Sadly our main gripe was lack of facilities in orchard field except hired chemical toilets (the type you get at festivals) They are not for the faint hearted! and we all felt these were unpleasant to use, and although cleaned by the site, unfortunately not always left clean by the previous user.
It was a shame there was also nowhere to wash up pots and pans, nor any sinks or showers in this field, so we ended up washing and cleaning our teeth on our pitch. It is suggested that you walk to the nearest proper block (with compostible toilets/ showers/ sinks with cold water and wash up facilities) which were situated in the other 2 fields, but sadly in reality they are much too far away and also down a very steep incline so it is impractical to use them. More Facilities in orchard field would be a real improvement to this campsite

A peaceful campsite in beautiful surroundings. Being able to have an open fire was a great experience, especially when paired with some local cider and sausages from Stroud farmer's market. There's a great walk (probably more but we only did the one) through the woods and around the ponds. Kids can roam safely and they very much enjoyed the garlic flatbread on offer up the hill (I only got a small piece and it was very good).
The compost toilets were an interesting novelty (in the 2nd pasture the left trap is the best - there's a step), though the water temperature for washing/washing up was a bit inconsistent (didn't bother me though).
Parking at the top and barrowing your gear down, or using the mule, is absolutely fine, though when the weather's not great it can be a pain not being able to just sling your stuff directly into the car.

This is a very special spot. If you had to imagine the perfect peaceful camping place you’d invent Thistledown, which is what I think the owners have done. Huge pastures that undulate away from each other allow for all sorts of ‘hidden’ nooks and crannies, no cars at pitches and a host of sensible guidelines mean that you feel genuinely removed from the world, snaking quiet walks and a huge natural wonderland means that no corner looks the same and the adventures can be endless. and the charming caring staff make the whole place delightful. Throw in serious eco credentials to the excellent facilities and you have a really fantastic experience. There is a glorious cafe (make sure you have the pizzas), a well stocked shop selling everything you’d need and wood for the fire pits delivered to your pitch. We sat by the fire and chatted, we played cricket in the fading sunshine, we roamed the woods and foraged for wild garlic and happened on bluebells, all on a damp and blustery weekend in May. We’ve travelled to all sorts of great campsites (but we don’t count ourselves as pros) but if you ever needed converting to the joys of camping Thistledown will do it. We don’t ever want to go anywhere else!! Thank you.

Camping, pizza nights, coffee (James’s our favourite), lemony lemonade (our daughters favourite), cakes and then takeaways.... we’ve loved supporting Thistledown through the lockdown and the food has been amazing! Our daughters favourite place to camp (and our now 3 year olds first camping experience). We only live a few miles away, but it always feels like we’re a thousand miles away from home. Thank you!!

A lovely setting and very family friendly. Service was very good and smiley. It was a bit disappointing to only have one meat option as a main course. We had a table of 8 and 6 had beef burgers which were very good although they came with a small salad instead of chips?! Maybe we didn't fit the demographic as it seems to be setup more for the alternative types with vegan options prominent.

I felt the need a leave a review as it was a afternoon well spent however may be suited more to vegans/vegetarians who would most likely get the most from the place.

We've just got back from a lovely long weekend at Thistledown Farm, staying in the Elderflower Orchard. We chose that particular area as it was cheapest, and because it allows car access to make things a bit easier when setting up and packing away.

It's a lovely spot - nice cafe on site (although I had to wait 40 mins for a takeaway coffee), and perfectly adequate, clean showers in the other two fields which we never queued to use even though it was a fairly busy weekend.

The only improvement I would make is to provide a washing up area in the orchard, as it's a bit of a trek to the next field with all your dirty pots and pans, but I understand that it's also the most basic area of the site, and that does add to its charm.

The local pub is great - lovely food and great service.

All in all, a lovely site, that I'd love to go back to
