Top 10 Reasons:
Over 12.5 Acres of Countryside to Explore
‘Kids roam free’ is the rule of thumb at our campsite. There are plenty of open countryside and beautiful scenic walks to discover. We boast a 6.5-acre camping field and a 4.5 acre woodland on our secure and secluded site, perfect for rounders, frisbee, games of tig and walking the dog. A lake and woodland area on-site offers untouched natural beauty on your doorstep, ready to enjoy any time you feel like it.
Let Go of All The Stress and Tension
We look forward to the holidays because we work so hard and there’s no better feeling than when you arrive at Epworth Fields. We are often told by guests that they actively feel the tension leave them as they turn down our secluded drive. Surrounded by fields, countryside and woodland, our guests are transported into a calm and tranquil mindset. If you are seeking to escape the hustle and bustle and unwind give Epworth Fields a try. Watch our video below to get an idea.
Camping In Comfort
We cater for everyone at Epworth Fields. Some of us just love the idea of camping and want to enjoy nature and go on peaceful walks but squirm at the idea of having to spend a week in discomfort. For those of you; we have holiday cottages available for rent, static caravans available for year-round rental, and unlimited parking space for caravans and vehicles. We are pleased to have our newly refurbished shower block ready for the 2019 UK summer holidays. We have 72 pitches to suit everyone 60 of which are fully electric available from £8.50 per adult and £1 per child. If you want to fully disconnect we have 60 non-electric pitches available from £7 per adult/ £1.50 per child. So no matter how you like to adventure, we have a place for you, with all the facilities you could need, and much more – right on your doorstep!
Gather Around an Open Fire
A campfire adds an extra buzz to the atmosphere and is a great focal point around which families and groups can gather. We provide a communal fire pit light nightly for our guests to enjoy their very own campfire around which you can tell tales, sing songs, toast marshmallows and play games. There are also a lot of recipes, some more gourmet than others, that you can try out whilst you are here, because we all know food cooked on a fire tastes way better.
Remember a time before selfies, video games and social media? We do! A time when a pair of jumpers made the perfect goal posts and real conversations helped people get to know one another. We think kids should be encouraged to put down the iPads and play tig, have water fights and roam the wood. Did you know Steve Jobs famously wouldn’t give his daughter an iPad because he said it was ‘too addictive’?. We stand for disconnecting from technology in order to connect with those closest to us. We have a new fully enclosed children’s play park and our 12.5 acres of secluded countryside is the perfect location to ditch the high-tech and embrace the fun of a good old-fashioned camping experience.
Epworth Fields, an Historic Town
Epworth is a historic market town and there’s no shortage of choice when it comes to things to do within walking distance. Epworth is also the birthplace of John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church and he was brought up in The Old Rectory, which is a Grade 1 listed building dating back to 1709 and the times of Queen Anne. The Wesley Trail is a series of walking routes around the town of Epworth, showing significant sites to the Wesley family which will transport you back to the 18th Century.
Adventure on Your Doorstep
We all want to come back from our summer holidays having memories that we can treasure. Epworth Fields is close to a lot of fun family day outs to spice up your UK summer holiday.Shepherd’s Place Farm is a great place to take children to see some animals, Hatfield Outdoor Activity Centre, for the more adventurous, or the Yorkshire Wildlife Park has some even bigger animals. There’s plenty more to do you can read about here.
Dogs really become part of the family and we wouldn’t expect you to have to leave your pooch or pets at home. Instead, we think the UK summer holidays are twice as fun when they do come along. It’s not just our cottages that are dog-friendly the whole holiday park is animal-friendly and with 9 million houses owning dogs in the UK there’s no better place than Epworth Field’s 12.5 acres of campsite and woodland for your pet to be. Make sure you check out these tips here before you take your pet on holiday.
Proper Grub in Our Pop-Up Kitchen
We have a pop-up kitchen that serves all your favourites. Everything is locally sourced from passionate local growers then cooked fresh on-site, with homemade chips and bread baked fresh every day. And if you’re planning on going out on a day trip or adventure our famous Backpacker’s Baps will keep you fuelled all day long. Our pop up kitchen is available to all throughout the UK summer holidays breakfast, dinner or and tea.
The UK’s First Fully Eco-Friendly Holiday Park
We are proud to be aneco-friendly holiday park based on the values of our owner/founder Lynsey Page. From the early days we grew out from our hippy routes into a modern eco-friendly holiday park, offering a more sustainable approach to camping. ‘Green’ is at the forefront of everything we do and we are committed to educating today’s youth to protect the planet for tomorrow. Through learning, discovering and exploring our environment we can educate a generation of sustainably minded, environmentally conscious people.
Bonus Reason: GOOD VIBES
We grew up in the 70’s and want to keep the spirit of the 70’s and vibes of positivity and friendship flowing through the youth of today. We believe in good old-fashioned fun for families, enabling you to unplug, recharge and reconnect with one another and leave us with lots of treasured memories.
We’ve probably not covered all the reasons why you should make us your UK summer holiday destination but hopefully we’ve given you enough to be curious. So this is a ‘Top Ten’ with a proviso – that you come and discover the rest of the reasons for yourself!
