what our campers have said:

We came to the Ice Cream Getaway camping this weekend and it was SO good. It was our little ones first camping trip and it couldn’t have been better!
The whole thing was incredibly well organized and all the staff have been friendly and helpful. We were really impressed with the drinks to the tent deliveries !
We hope it’s on again next year!!
Thank you, Bluebell team for a wonderful weekend!

What can I say apart from absolutely AMAZING!!

It was her first camping experience and one I think she will remember for a very long time.

The farm was brilliant, a great selection of activities our daughter loved feeding the animals, the food that was provided was really nice and the ice cream…EXCEPTIONAL!l

Just back from a fabulous weekend camping at Bluebells, staff were all so lovely and accommodating, food was really good, and the farm was great.

Some of the best I’ve cream I’ve ever had too, we will definitely be back for a day out and would love to do another camp if they happen again.
