This campsite is situated within its own secluded tree-lined setting within walking distance of Claydon House within the estate - a stunning, spacious back-to-nature location and perfect for star gazing and hiking. It's off the beaten track with plenty of space to relax, unwind or run around and have a kick about with the family!
Located in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside, Claydon Estate is a thriving, family-run country 5,000 acre 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. As we are located beside a lake on the Claydon Estate, please follow water safety advice for your party here.
We also have The Embers Snack Bar serving coffees, delicious hot food, all your snack & drink essentials and plenty of wood for you campfire. 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!
Our famous stone-fired pizzas are freshly made on site and individually fired. Available via pre-ordering before you arrive on site - keep an eye out for an email for pre-orders, about 5 days before you arrive on site.
The Embers Snack Bar stocks all the drink & snack essentials - from freshly ground barista coffee to super creamy ice-cream, snacks and ice-cold drinks.
Please note that food offerings are subject to availability and so may not be available every evening.
Claydon’s incredible Courtyard, just a 10-minute stroll from the campsite, was once the bustling heart of the estate. It housed workshops, stables, coach houses, estate stores, the laundry, brew house and staff accommodation.
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.
