Wild Camping Dark LaneFeatured
This beautiful wild camping location is comprised of just under 3 acres of private woodland and field on the edge of the village of East Grafton – a very peaceful spot where you can relax and be close to nature.
To make sure everyone has plenty of space, only 5 tent / caravanette pitches are available. Wash basin, compost loo, washing up facilities and running water are provided from the bore hole powered by solar energy. There is no drinking water provided and no electrical hook up. There is a small charge for well-behaved dogs (to be supervised at all times please). Fire pits and wood can be provided as an added extra.
There is lots more information on wild camping and what to expect on Wild Camping Dark Lane’s website.
Wild Camping Dark Lane is located approximately 3 miles from Great Bedwyn, with direct trains to and from Paddington London, and just under a mile from the picturesque village of Wilton, home to The Swan Inn providing locally sourced food and drink. There is a beautiful walk along the Kennet & Avon Canal to Great Bedwyn shop (2.8 miles) and a 2 mile walk/drive to Burbage where there are shops and laundry facilities. The number 22 bus (stop 700m away) takes you to the nearby town of Hungerford via the local villages. We are ideally located for the national cycle route 4 which is within 1/2 km.
The local countryside provides endless opportunities for hiking, cycling, horse riding and most importantly the opportunity to revel in nature and the wellbeing it provides. The North Wessex Downs is a 2-star dark skies site, so on a clear night the stars are breathtaking and you can see the Milky Way with the naked eye.
