Peaceful, tranquil and unspoilt green camping with superb views. A night or more at Thistledown gives you much more than just a campsite. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty lies Thistledown Farm: 4 miles of maintained paths and sculpture trails wind their way through 70 acres of meadow, pasture and woodland. Educational boards around the site provide information on a host of environmental and agricultural subjects. Friendly pigs, goats and cattle are always happy to greet visitors.

Thanks for the review and I'm very sorry if we'd sold out of some dishes during your visit - our food is freshly cooked and sometimes we run out if it's been busy or suppliers are late. We think that we offer a great price...More

Popped in for pizza on a Friday night. The pizza is always good, but they seem to have got better over the last year. Fantastic dough, nicely blistered and perfectly chewy. Really good!

Stunning setting however the cafe was dirty, tables sticky and high chairs filthy. Staff were miserable and treated us as an inconvenience, shame as the food looked lovely and couldn't be a more beautiful view from cafe.More

Thanks for your review. Our Ecoleaf cleaner is sticky before it's fully dry on the tables. The high chairs are cleaned regularly but as Saturday was one of our busiest ever days there may have been a point at which they were used again before...More
