WHAT PEOPLE SAY
We've had some lovely things written about us and we couldnt resist sharing some of these with you.
Just got back from the wedding (of which we were the stag party) and had loads of guys telling me it was one of the best weekends ever, definitely due in a big way to being in such an amazing location. The perfect place for a private party, it feels like there’s no-one around for miles! Piers and Sophia were really helpful organising the whole thing, it felt personal and thoughtful throughout. I’m definitely going back!
There is very little to say about this weekend beyond that it was the most perfect experience we could have wished for - the host was amazing and generous, the site we beautifully and comfortably built, the food and merriment was excellently and deliciously prepared and the location was an idyll of the highest degree. We were welcome into Piers' and Sophia's farm like members of their own family, which meant that me and the 14 other guests had the best stag weekend ever. We were able to build an amazing weekend with Piers through his varied collection of local artists and helpers which meant that the Anglo-Saxon feast I had planned for turned into a weekend that was set in all ways, to the times of when I wanted it to be set. I would highly recommend anyone to stay at Elcombe Copse for everything from a stag party to a family holiday to a wedding - the facilities are amazing and allow you to live completely independently of the outside world - even getting food delivered there is a breeze! It was a complete joy to be there - I cannot wait to come back and every member of the party had an incredible weekend - I look forward to returning this summer
Thank you so much for having us at your beautiful camp! You've been excellent hosts and we've already tried to come up with excuses to come again! Love from everyone x PS. We'll definitely be trying picklebacks at home...
I wanted to say a huge thanks to you and the gang for all your help this weekend. I had such a fantastic time and really enjoyed staying at Elcombe – it really is a wonderful place. The food was all delicious and I will not forget any of this weekend in a hurry. I hope to come again in the future.
Thirteen of us stayed at Elcombe Copse for the first weekend in October - Piers and Sophia were perfect hosts! The bell tents were great and the shepherds huts were stunning! The eating areas had been set up beautifully for us, we even had fresh meadow flowers on the table! After showing us around we were left to enjoy weekend, knowing that they were only a phone call away! We are already planning our return next year! I would thoroughly recommend staying at the beautiful Elcombe Copse!
Sophia and piers's little paradise provided the best weekend ever, not only did they manage to squeeze in our big group of 19 comfortably but they brought us any extras we needed as well such as games and blankets, and they made us a pub reservation which was lovely. When we arrived the place We couldn't believe how beautiful and charming the set up was. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need, bathroom is emmaculate, there is a lovely chill out spot in the woods. This is an incredible place even for those who don't like camping!! Thank you for making my birthday one of the bests ones yet!
WHAT AN INCREDIBLE WEEKEND! From the moment I arrived with friends we could not stop talking about how amazing the location was. Great attention to detail in all the decoration and finishing touches of the whole campsite. Ordered a few extras like movie projectors and the banquet which were all great. Sophia and Piers were easy to communicate with and made sure it was a 30th Birthday weekend to remember. i could not recommend it enough and am already trying to think of an excuse to book it again soon!
I cannot describe how perfect our weekend was. Stunning site, beautiful tents, hot showers and proper toilets, well equipped kitchen and marquee meant it was even brilliant in the rain. Piers and Sophia made us feel so welcome and looked after us brilliantly. So many beautiful thoughtful little touches. Love hearts on the beds and fire and barby ready on arrival! I also highy recommend the pizza's. Yum! We all can't wait to come back to Elcombe copse again. Amazing!
We just had the most fantastic experience at Elcombe Copse, for a hen do! The scenery is breathtaking, the huts and tents so quaint, clean and tidy and the facilities were brilliant. We loved spending the evenings huddled around the camp fire laughing and joking. Our banquet dinner was so delicious! Barbecued chicken and potatoes were heavenly and that ratatouille was yummy! And then, once again, our breaths were taken away, when the vintage afternoon tea was put on for us (bunting and all!) on Sunday. I was expecting good things, but it even surpassed that. The sandwiches, cakes, scones (with delicious caramel spread), homemade lemonade, prosecco...and so much more. Just perfection. And also catering for my gluten free needs was extremely appreciated! I will be recommending Piers and Sophia's wonderful world to all. Its a beautiful place and beautiful part of the world. Thanks!
The perfect hideaway, an idyllic spot tucked away from the world. We went as a big group of fiends and everyone loved it. The accommodation is comfortable, the kitchen more than expected the weather was British and it didn't effect the mood!
I booked two nights at Elcombe Copse for 14 girls as a weekend away for my sisters hen. What a lovely experience it was! The site itself is incredibly beautiful; the tents and huts tastefully decorated, filled with interesting furniture and fresh flowers – attention to detail was fantastic. There was everything you could possibly need and more, from necessities such as candles, wood and firelighters, to marshmallows and freshly ground coffee! The surrounding area is very special – unspoilt, interesting with lots of wildlife. As the weather was good, we decided to take a long walk (7 miles) which was just amazing (it was also voted by the Guardian as one of the best walks in the UK) and for those you that decide to visit I would seriously recommend it. From start to finish, Sophia and Piers were brilliant – the perfect hosts, on hand to provide us with anything we needed, as well as being instrumental in helping organise the weekend before we arrived, from making reservations for lunch at pubs, recommendations for pubs/walks and putting on the most incredible and delicious candle light banquet (which I seriously recommend!!) .We had the most fantastic weekend! For the experience and location, this is incredible value for money. I will most definitely be back! Fran
Sophia and Piers are lovely hosts, very welcoming and they have thought of everything including all the little things - our fire was lit on arrival with bottles of cider left on our door step on night 2 and bags of marshmallows ready to toast on the fire. Alongside this, due to it being a rainy week, they upgraded us from a bell tent to a gorgeous shepherds hut. Elcombe Copse is incredibly beautiful, the fields are dreamy, the view is incredible and the cows are friendly. The little area to eat your breakfast/lunch/dinner is in the actual copse itself with a fabulous nature mobile. I would highly reccomend staying at Elcombe Copse, you will love it.
It was worth every penny! We had the best time. We were incredibly well looked after and the location is magical. Highly recommend this gem. Thank you!!
