The Embers Claydon campsite is located in Buckinghamshire on the Claydon Estate. The campsite is situated within its own secluded tree-lined setting - a stunning, back-to-nature location and perfect for star gazing. And naturally you’ll find everything Embers is known for: private firepits included on every pitch for campfires, bell tents and our famous wood-fired pizzas.
Located in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside, Claydon Estate is a thriving, family-run country estate and has been the ancestral home of the Verney family for 400 years.
We want you to enjoy your stay at Embers just as nature intended, but that doesn’t mean going without clean facilities. And so, as with all Embers Camping sites, you’ll find our shower and loo shacks on site.
All our bathrooms are kept meticulously clean and have flushing toilets and piping hot showers. A real comfort when you are camping, leaving you refreshed and ready to take on the day ahead – but don’t forget to bring your own towel as these aren’t included.
There is a well-stocked shop on site, providing freshly ground coffee and camping essentials such as milk and snacks at reasonable prices. We’ve also got a fantastic ice cream freezer selling local ice cream in scoops and cones.
Please note that due to increased measures following Covid-19 access and availability may be restricted.
All within a short walk from our campsite, located in the Estate, you'll find the National Trust's Claydon House surrounded by beautiful herbaceous borders, attractive lakes and gardens. Also visit the House to find out the connection to Florence Nightingale, who was a regular visitor many years ago.
Claydon House was built between 1757 and 1771 and is now owned by the National Trust. It is famous for its collection of replica costumes and visitors can even experience the house just as it would have been in the 18th Century.See More Info
Be sure to feast on our freshly made wood-fired pizzas during your stay: keep an eye out for an email about 1 week before your arrival, as we’ll send out arrival instructions and a link to follow where you can pre-order pizzas for your upcoming stay (and because we do need to have a daily minimum and maximum pizza order number, it's a must to pre-order, and there may unfortunately be some evenings when pizzas aren’t available).
Claydon’s incredible Courtyard was once the bustling heart of the estate. It housed workshops, stables, coach houses, estate stores, the laundry, brew house and staff accommodation.
It is now a hub for food, events, arts and crafts and home to independent shops, businesses and holiday cottages. Our visitors can enjoy lunch, enroll in a variety of courses and workshops, or buy something unique and beautiful.
Central to Claydon Courtyard is the Phoenix Kitchen, serving homemade, delicious seasonal food throughout the year.
You'll find our site tucked away within the Claydon Estate at the end of a tree lined track. Here at Embers we keep our sites car free leaving them full of safe open space, perfect for running around in and with open sight. So we ask that after unloading your vehicle you then park in the overnight car park for the duration of your stay.See More Info
