What We Offer at Embers Claydon, Campsite in Buckinghamshire

What's on site

New this season is table tennis - great for kids to play amongst each other! There is a large area in the centre of the site to play volley ball, game of football or cricket with the family. Embers always has space to enjoy, so come on and enjoy your summer.

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. As we are located beside a lake on the Claydon Estate, please follow water safety advice for your party here.

Every pitch at Embers comes with its own fire basket for you to enjoy and can even be used to BBQ, with the addition of a tripod and grill. As dusk draws in, the atmosphere at Embers is really quite special as everyone gets their campfires going, you'll understand why camping is made magical at Embers!

Now it is a hub for food, events, arts and crafts and home to independent shops, a spa, businesses, and holiday cottages.

The Courtyard is also home to The Phoenix Kitchen which serves breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea and can be enjoyed in their outdoor seating area, where you can take in the beauty of Claydon House and views of the 5,000 acre estate. Embers campers can get a 10% discount off their food during their stay.
