This summer the National Trust is hosting the Big Camp in London and the South-East – a unique opportunity to camp somewhere truly special.

A family toasting marshmallows over an open camp fire at Colby Woodland Garden, Pembrokeshire. The garden is named after Welsh landowner John Colby (1751-1823), who originally came to the area in the 1790s to mine coal. Today, the woodland garden features a wild flower meadow, stream, and colourful walled garden.

You can take your pick and stay in the grounds of Rudyard Kipling’s former home at Bateman’s, wake up to the backdrop of fourteenth century Scotney Castle or camp in Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown’s  Grecian Valley at Stowe.

There are 19 pop-up camping locations to choose from, with most offering food, live music and marshmallow toasting around a campfire, and each special location putting on its own events – from den building and woodland craft making to star gazing and story-telling.

Places are limited and expected to sell out fast.  To book your Big Camp experience at one of the country’s most breath-taking spots, visit the National Trust Big Camp page.
