Castle Farm, Fotheringhay

Idyllic small site on the Nene

Castle Farm campsite sits on the banks of the River Nene, surrounded by quiet farmland. The undulating field sweeps down to a peaceful bend in the river which is an idyllic spot for wild swimming, canoeing, wildlife spotting, or simply sitting end enjoying nature. 

There are just 10 pitches, so the site never feels crowded. This is the perfect place for those who enjoy ‘wild’ camping, as the site has been left relatively untouched; a freshwater tap and portaloo are the only facilities! 

Adjacent to the campsite is a small 5 pitch caravan site for caravan club members only. And short-term moorings are also available which are popular in the summer months. 

Castle Farm campsite is the ideal place to visit for those with an interest in history. As the name suggests, the site sits in the purlieu of Fotheringhay Castle. Little remains of this once significant building, but the mound on which the keep sat and the moat surrounding it are open to the public. The spot where Mary Queen of Scots lost her life, is also the place where the infamous Richard III came into the world. In fact, two minutes away is the magnificent structure of Fotheringhay Church where visitors will find the tombs of his ancestors.

There is an extensive network of public footpaths leading to the surrounding villages, a welcoming village pub and the charming market town of Oundle is a 5-minute drive away. The Talbot Hotel also has an oak staircase which is said to come from Fotheringhay Castle.

The campsite is becoming increasingly popular and the site is restricted on the number of days it can open so book early to avoid disappointment. The site is available for groups to hire and for individual bookings through the summer months.
