Our vision is simple: a large open site, filled with canvas tents and a good camp fire. Murray set about finding his own suitable site, packing up his bags in the city and pitched a tent (or 5!) and so, Embers Camping was born. To this day we're still offering camping exactly as it should be.
At Embers, we work hard to look after our sites and the surrounding countryside. This is what Embers Camping is doing in order to make a difference!
All our boilers and electricity requirements are powered by solar power, all our waste is recycled to best practices, all water usage is reduced to a minimum with eco-flush loos, water efficient nozzles and self-closing taps. Our barn style luxury facilities are built from sustainably managed forests.
In effect, making our entire operation on site amount to an almost a zero carbon footprint.
Murray grew up in South Africa, his holidays were spent camping in the bush with large canvas tents and sitting round a firepit. Murray wanted to recreate his childhood holidays for his own family. Being unable to find anywhere that offered this, Murray set about finding his own suitable site and created Embers Camping.
Nothing gets past our office manager Alice, she keeps us all in line making sure everything runs smoothly at HQ. Overly fond of Christmas and spreadsheets, Alice is assisted by her four legged companion Luna.
Pippa our Marketing Manger can be found pouring over social media stats whist holding a large mug of tea. By her own admission Pippa talks too much.
The juggling one, Christian will be out and about making sure you get the magical camping experience you have come to know at Embers Camping. With an efficient service that meets the expectations and needs of campers, keep an eye out as he regularly camps on site too!
