Riverside Campsite

Hardwick Estate rents its rustic riverside camping field to individuals and groups for camping. The field has direct river access and is ideal for those wishing to have fun on (or in!) the water. There are two fire pits, one of which has log seating, perfect for gathering round the camp fire of an evening. Fresh drinking water is provided.  Facilities include two eco-friendly toilets with wash basins, a shower enclosure for anyone wishing to bring a portable camping shower, and a washing up area. There is no electricity.

Our camping field is popular with families for get-away-from-it-all camping breaks as well as with schools, Scouts and other activity groups (such as those taking part in the Duke Of Edinburgh Award scheme). It is also used by local groups and charities who are hosting weekend or week-long workshops or events.  Every group has exclusive use of the field, which is priced at a flat rate of £250 per night for 2024 season with a reduced rate of £200 for Scouts, Hardwick residents and charities.  2025’s season will be charged at £280 with a reduced rate of £224 for Scouts, Hardwick residents and charities.  Commercial events are allowed on negotiation with the Estate only.

In order to preserve the peaceful nature of the campsite and surrounding areas, no amplified music is permitted.  Please note that we no longer host wedding events.
