Below are some of the recent reviews posted on our Cool Camping listing. We continue to be blown away by our reviews and feedback from campers especially as this new site is still evolving and will get even better year after year as all of the planting matures.
Bloomfield is more magical than can be described in a review. Picture just 4 tents in a vast expanse of fields, trees, ponds, and wildlife. Picture yourself arriving to find luxurious beds, hot showers in spacious rooms, a well equipped kitchen-shed with sheltered table outside. Picture yourself wandering round the tall grass and fruit trees, discovering perfect reading-idylls – benches, hammocks, and even a bird watching hide. So much more than just a field with tents in, picture a carefully considered layout, which serves both beauty and privacy, a secret garden of space and fresh air. Picture a pond with geese and ducks; perfect for pond dipping, then secured at night so no chance of children or sleepwalkers wandering in! Picture meals cooked on a firepit, with the log pile replenished whenever needed. Picture hot chocolate, or a glass of wine, as the sun sets and the stars become clearly visible – try lying on the deck outside your tent, for a perfect view. Picture the wandering peacocks, the gentle background sound of sheep and horses. Picture rope swings and a softball area. With all these, you need never leave site – but with the Neolithic site of Hambledon Hill standing proudly against the skyline, who could resist the 5 min walk to its trail starting point? A gentle climb for breathtaking views. With a shop and a lovely food-pub also an easy stroll away, you have everything at your fingertips at Bloomfield Camping. The hardest part of a stay at Bloomfield is tearing yourself away at the end.Brambles
What more can I say that hasn’t already been said? Bloomfield is without a doubt a haven of peace and tranquillity in this crazy busy life. The tents are soooo very cosy and comfortable (you would be hard pushed to find more comfortable beds at any 5* hotel anywhere in the world!)
We had the most amazing week and have never felt so chilled out. We were even treated to a meteor shower one night. Lying on the deck whilst covered in cosy blankets watching nature’s own firework show is now one of my all time favourite holiday memories.
In short if you’re feeling stressed and in need of some serious rest and relaxation this place cannot be beaten. My husband is a founder member of the anti camping movement and we had to really twist his arm to persuade him to come with us but even he could not fault it and did not moan once! I work in mental health and think it should be prescribed on the N.H.S as an alternative to anti-depressants! Well done and many thanks Jon and Amanda. We cannot wait to return.Mrs B
Well if this is camping then I’m hooked. We can go on about this site but others have covered the features so well. Such as the clean showers and toilet block. The clever compost loo (which surprisingly doesn’t smell). The tents are amazing; so roomy and with the thickest of duvets so you can’t get cold.
But what we would like to highlight is the great way you are made to feel from when you first drive in to when you leave. Jon and Amanda are the site owners and managers and attend to such detail never experienced before. They go the extra mile to make your stay special ensuring all the little things are covered.
Yes there are extra tea lights in case you run out. There are so many logs you can have an open fire whenever you like. There is washing up liquid because you forgot that! He will even transport your luggage on the back of his mower to save you the trouble. Even the amazing peacocks on site popped in for a morning hello to show off their chicks….so well trained!
So do go and experience Clamping at its best but be sure to ask Jon for his advice on restaurants, walks, pubs, cycle rides and even sea fishing, he knows the lot! We all had a lot of fun – Thanks!Richard
We have just returned from our wonderful week at Bloomfield, Jon and Amanda have thought of everything, everything you could need, very comfy beds, clean and spacious Loos and showers, the music in the toilet block was very welcoming on a late night visit to the loo. Fully equipped kitchen with adjoining canopy and fairy lights, peaceful evenings spent around the camp fire, we will be back and will be spreading the word, if you enjoy the great outdoors, then Bloomfield is a must.Linda
This is the most gorgeous site, and it seems everything has been thought of! As we arrived we were welcomed by Jon with trailer to take our ‘stuff’ to a beautifully furnished bell tent. The king sized bed is even more comfortable than our own bed at home, and the kids (9 and 15) were both very comfy on their futons. The kitchen shed with canopy has everything you need (and a lot more!) . The canopy meant we could comfortably eat outside even in the rain. Even though the kitchen was so well equipped, we all agreed the fire pit was the best way to cook – and roast marshmallows and make s’mores! – and all the logs and firelighters are provided. The lake area with hammocks and rope swings were lovely (and fenced off so little ones wouldn’t accidentally wander in). And the shower/toilet block was one of the best we have come across in our years of camping, large cubicles, music, hair dryer, and straightener, freezers with shelves allocated for each tent for food and freezer blocks. While we were there it rained! – but there is so much to do within an hours drive, come rain or shine. We will be back next year and keep our fingers crossed the weather is better!Julia
Our week at Bloomfield Camping was our first experience of Glamping, and we’re hooked!! Jon met us as we drove into the car parking area and quickly showed us around the site facilities and got our various suitcases transported to our site. A great welcome, and the friendly approach continued throughout the week.
The tent, ktichen, fire pit and excellent shower block were all highlights of the site – as were the many friendly peacocks that we shared our stay with. A very friendly site, with huge private pitches and a real sense of luxury in a fantastic location.
