NEW Pop-Up SITE FOR 2019!
Nestled in the North Buckinghamshire Countryside is the impressive, family-run Claydon Estate. This working estate has over 5,000 acres of farmland, stunning gardens and parkland to explore. Our new Pop-Up campsite is located within its own secluded tree-lined meadow - a stunning, back-to-nature location. And naturally you’ll find everything Embers is known for: firepits, bell tents and our famous wood-fired pizzas.
Claydon House is a country estate in the Aylesbury Vale, built between 1757 and 1771 and now owned by the National Trust. Claydon is famous for its collection of replica costumes and visitors can even experience the house just as it would have been in the 18th Century.
With beautiful herbaceous borders, attractive pools, a large productive and decorative walled garden and an unusual historic glasshouse, exploring the gardens is a must. Take the time to visit Lady Verney’s Florence Nightingale Centenary Garden and enjoy stunning views over Claydon’s parkland from Queen Victoria’s walk.
The gardens are open to all Embers campers at no additional cost, but there is a charge for visiting the House.
Located a short walk from the campsite in a newly refurbished part of the Courtyard, the Phoenix Tea Rooms serve hot drinks, appetising light lunches and delicious cream teas. Many of the cakes are made on the premises, using the freshest local ingredients. Some of the ingredients even come from Claydon’s own gardens.
The hot food menu changes daily and is created by Claydon's own enthusiastic chef. Keep an eye out for the impressive specials board.
We want you to enjoy your stay at Embers just as nature intended, but that doesn’t mean going without clean facilities. And so, as with all Embers Camping Pop-Up sites, you’ll find our modern shower and loo shacks on site.
All our bathrooms are kept meticulously clean and have flushing toilets and piping hot showers. A real comfort when you are camping, leaving you refreshed and ready to take on the day ahead – but don’t forget to bring your own towel as these aren’t included.
There is a small but well-stocked shop on site, providing camping essentials such as milk, fresh bread, snacks, freshly ground coffee and bacon and eggs at reasonable prices. We’ve also got a fantastic ice cream freezer selling local ice cream in scoops and cones.
Be sure to feast on our freshly made wood-fired pizzas during your stay: keep an eye out for an email about 1 week before your arrival, as we’ll send out arrival instructions and a link to follow where you can pre-order pizzas for your upcoming stay (and because we do need to have a daily minimum and maximum pizza order number, it's a must to pre-order, and there may unfortunately be some evenings when pizzas aren’t available).
You'll find our site tucked away within the Claydon Estate at the end of a tree lined track. Here at Embers we keep our sites car free leaving them full of safe open space, perfect for running around in and with open sight. So we ask that after unloading your vehicle you then park in the overnight car park for the duration of your stay.See More Info
