about us

Our vision has always been simple: a large open site, filled only with happy people, great times, canvas tents and a good camp fire.

Murray, our founder, packed up his city bags a few years ago and set about making this vision a reality. After pitching his tent far and wide in search of the perfect sites, he started Embers Camping in 2013.

To this day we remain true to our promise of offering camping exactly the way it should be.

Eco Embers

Eco Embers

At Embers, we work hard to look after our sites and the surrounding countryside. This is how Embers Camping makes a difference in the villages and communities where we work.

All our boilers and electricity requirements are powered by solar power; all our waste is recycled according 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.

We continue to strive towards a zero carbon footprint across all our operations.

Murray - Founder

Murray grew up in South Africa where his holidays were spent camping in the bush under large canvas tents and sitting round a firepit. Murray wanted to recreate his childhood holidays for his own family. Being unable to find anywhere in the UK that offered this, Murray set about finding his own suitable sites and founded Embers Camping.

Alice - Office Guru

Nothing gets past our Office Manager Alice: she keeps us all in line, ensuring that everything runs smoothly at HQ. Overly fond of Christmas and spreadsheets, Alice is assisted by her four-legged companion Luna.

Pippa - The Social One

Pippa, our Marketing Manager, can be found pouring over social media statistics whist holding a large mug of tea. By her own admission Pippa talks too much.

Christian - Operations Manager

Known as The Juggler, Christian will be out and about making sure you get the magical camping experience you have come to know at Embers. Keep an eye out for him as he regularly camps on site too…it’s the best way for him to know if we are making your time with us as magical as we can.
