Nestled in the secluded Secret Garden Party site, The Wild Meadows offers an enchanting camping experience where adventure meets tranquility. This haven is perfect for friends, families, and their “wildlings” seeking a rejuvenating escape from urban life.

Fred Fellowes, the founder of the Secret Garden Party, say ‘We are excited to welcome old and new Gardeners alike to re-discover our beautiful site with fresh eyes, their families and their friends, in a wholesome camping adventure sprinkled with Secret Garden Party magic’ 

Experience the great outdoors and set up camp under a starlit sky and immerse yourself in nature’s wonders. With spacious camping grounds, woodland retreats, and a lake for wild swimming, there’s ample room for everyone to unwind. Families can opt for beautiful bell tents or bring their own campervan, tent, or caravan – there’s no restriction on pitch space.

Evening adventures and nightlife gather around the campfire for abundant bedtime stories, cocoa, and toasted marshmallows. Visit The Prize Cock, the onsite container pub, serving delicious food, drinks, and live music daily. The excitement continues over the weekend with a flurry of nighttime parties for adults, ensuring fun for the “big kids” as well.

Offering activities for all ages, The Wild Meadows provides a packed programme of activities, including crafting, woodland skills, and games. For wellness seekers, the Herb Garden Wellness experience features Sound Healing, Yoga, Breathwork, Meditation, and a myriad of workshops.

Local charm is amplified as attendees are encouraged to explore. They can take a short stroll to the charming village of Abbots Ripton, where they can visit the local pub and experience the village’s buoyant beauty.
