FERNHILL FARM, MENDIPS AONB
This year, Wild Canvas will be popping-up on the wonderful Fernhill Farm. Located on the top of the Mendip Hills in Somerset, Farmers Jen and Andy are committed to Regenerative Agriculture; helping to reverse climate change and species loss by using techniques that rebuild the soil and restore biodiversity.
Ancient Gatherings on the Mendips
“Arrowheads and flint knappings have been found in many places on this farm and with the oldest human skeleton 5 miles away in Cheddar Caves, it’s easy to imagine early men and women gathered around an open fire here. Faces glowing, clad in animal skins, feasting on local meat, seeds, nuts and fruits with mutterings of appreciation” – Fernhill Farm
Wild Canvas builds on this history, offering time to slowdown, express our natural human desire to gather, connect to nature and have fun in this special place.
Wild Canvas is a place to enjoy the earthy luxury of Tipis or regular camping and experience the goodness in simple living, a place to gather round a fire with friends and family, a place to reconnect.
We are a family friendly, boutique campsite with a mild festive ambience. With generously spaced camping pitches, a communal fire, stone circles, workshops, small scale DJ sessions, yoga, arts & craft workshops and kids activities available throughout the 12 days, we hope that your holiday with us will not only be enjoyable, but also uplift and inspire you. At the same time our communal efforts will be helping to support Fernhill Farm and it’s ecological, regenerative farming ethos.
We bring together a fun and talented bunch of people with a love of the outdoors, camping, tipis and a history of producing gatherings and music festivals.
Our wonderful Tipis are provided by Hearthworks Tipi and Yurts based in Glastonbury. Hearthworks are the organisers of the Tipi Field at Glastonbury Festival and also provide accommodation to many other festivals across the UK. Check out the Hearthworks website here.
