Gemma and Will are the proud owners of Wingbury Farm Glamping, working closely with Will’s mum and dad, Jennie and James.
They have a young family and have experienced, for themselves, the transition from carefree backpacking and camping on small sites with few facilities to the reality of camping with a family. With Wingbury Farm Glamping, Will and Gemma want to offer a relaxing camping option to all their customers, with a touch of luxury thrown in.
They also felt that the scenery in the area was too good to miss at any time of year, so have decided to open Wingbury Farm Glamping all year round.
The farm itself has been in the family for three generations, its use evolving over the years, from a 220 acre mixed arable and stock farm, to a 50-acre site now used as permanent pasture for sheep and cattle.
Our promise to you
We are committed to having a clear and transparent pricing policy. We don’t go in for added extras in a big way for this reason.
We also have a range of baby friendly items that you may wish to pre-book (no charge, it’s just a question of availability).
That said, if you do want to make your minibreak extra special, please do enquire and the management will be happy to help as much as we can.
Code Green… caring for the environment
Upper Wingbury Farm installed rotating solar panels* on site over six years ago. It is from these that our pods will obtain their power.
We also have three ground-source heat pumps providing heat and hot water to our farmhouse, glamping office and The Old Barn, replacing the need for the use of fossil fuels, and a Dry Mix Recycling skip on site.
In 2016, we recycled 101 tonnes of paper, cardboard and plastic and have saved over 203 tonnes of CO2 emissions since 2011. We’re immensely proud of these results and we’ll continue to do everything we can to minimise our footprint on the environment.
That’s why we ask our guests to recycle as much of their waste as possible and we’ve used wood from around the farm on our glamping site, for furniture or fuel, wherever we can.
*If you’re into the detail, you’ll want to know we have three rotating boards with a total of 184 photovoltaic panels.
