“Britain’s finest camping experience”. Janey Lee Grace, Radio 2 DJ, best selling author.
Eco-chic boutique camping available from March until November in beautiful 200-acre woodland – super stylish deluxe canvas lodges, complete with four-poster beds, fridges and wood burners…You can sleep 6 in a Woodland Tent and 6 in a Luxury lodge.
The multi award-winning camp was set up by design couple Carolyn and Christian Van Outersterp who’d previously masterminded London’s stylish restaurant bar and discreet celebrity hang out CVO Firevault. Jollydays is the culmination of the Van Outersterps 15 year dream to combine a love of camping and chic hotels – it’s an extension of their simplified lifestyle – beautiful surroundings, great food and socialising around a roaring log fire. For the kids, it’s heaven on earth (even those addicted to their Playstations).
“Fantastic, brilliant… I feel like the favourite son of a Bedouin prince – it’s amazing”.
Alexander Armstrong, Comedian and TV Presenter
This is a unique British Camp with a lovely communal feel – a tea tent and campfire area at its heart and the camp appeals to families, couples and groups. The Van Outersterps can point you in the right direction for activities to do on site – from archery and bushcraft to Polo and champagne picnics.
