Quiet, family-friendly inclusive pop-up camp site nestled in six acres along a beautiful riverside.
Turn on your exploration mode… surrounded by walks in the Northamptonshire countryside and cycling paths down disused railway lines, you won’t be sitting around at Arthingworth Camping. Unless you want to, of course… after all, this family-friendly inclusive site is on the banks of a gentle river named Sidoms Ford and there’s over six acres of spacious pitches for you to lounge around on.
As well as all those outward adventures, this place has its own discovery sites. There are the remains of a small, old quarry that was dug by monks in the 14th century while building a nearby monastery. When the kids aren’t scouting that out, there’s a large pitch-free area for ball games and family activities.
This is a small, family-run back to basics site with super scenery, so there are no hot water or shower facilities. However, there are gender neutral toilet facilities and cold drinking water to ready you for the countryside walks that start directly from the site.
If you’re after something a little stronger, there’s a pub five minutes’ walk from the site and two more pubs and the Warner's Distillery Ltd distillery five minutes’ drive away (the latter runs tours and tastings, if you fancy it).
Off-road cycling is also on the cards. It’s half an hour’s walk to the atmospheric Kelmarsh Tunnel. Another short walk will get you to the Brampton Valley Way, a 14-mile route down a disused railway. For the dog owners among you, there are also a number of dog walks starting in Arthingworth – the site will provide a map with details.
