What to expect?
Would you like to camp in the heart of Miserden village in the stunningly
beautiful Gloucestershire countryside but not have to get up for a music
workshop in the morning?
With no official workshops, no meal times and no problems this camp is the
ideal time for de-stressing, lazing around and not doing much. Should there be
fellow musicians on site, then you could play a bit of music or sing a few
songs, but only if you really want to.
There’s just the wonderful Miserden countryside to ramble in and the
Carpenters Arms to visit with no pressure to do anything but listen to the
calls of wild birds and the chiming of the church clock.
Previous activities on this camp have included music sessions in the hall
and in the pub, extensive walking and cycling trips for those so inclined,
joining Gloucester Morris Men to dance followed by a music and song session in
the pub and another evening spent listening to a folk band in the local pub.
Our warden will be onsite to ensure that everything at the hall is working
as it should, but the rest is up to you. The village shop is just a few yards
from the campsite and you have all the facilities of the hall kitchen and
toilets. What’s not to like?
This camp is available to anyone for any amount of time, from a single night
up to the whole four days. It will suit people booking either the May BH
Weekend before or Ssession Weekend after (Or both of course!).
This camp is also available to anyone not attending either the May BH or Session camps.

Miserden is a small village surrounded by beautiful Cotswold countryside. Gloucester, Cheltenham and Stroud are all nearby but the village is so attractive you may want to just sit in the field and admire the view. The village pub is very welcoming and people often enjoy a session combined with a pub lunch. Miserden is set in beautiful wooded hills and valleys between Stroud and Cheltenham, Miserden is in a walker’s paradise. Historic Cheltenham is just 9 miles away and Cirencester and the Cotswold Water Parks are well worth a visit. Ask the locals the history of Whiteway. Miserden village is part of the well known Wills Estate.
