La Rosa Campsite Extraordinaire!

Welcome to

La Rosa Campsite Extraordinaire!

We are sorry to announce that La Rosa Campsite as was is now permanently closed.

If you want to hear about our new venture please do email us so that we can keep you up to date as it develops. The new venture will be for up to four people at a time and will hopefully be ready for adventurers to test it out for us in Spring.

Opened in 2003 the campsite was the first one of its type in the UK. After an epic battle to get planning permission on the land at our rented home and amidst local suspicion about our 'new age' intentions, the campsite went on to gain national recognition for its originality and eco friendly but theatrical design. It was emulated by many and held up as a positive example of low impact tourism by the National Park. In the past 6 years we have been able to share the space further and use profit from guests staying here to provide free short breaks and residential camps for traumatised children. ❤️Most importantly to us the site created a loyal and much loved 'La Rosa Family'. Folk married here, grieved here, celebrated and conceived here. We gained many like minded and long lasting friends and some beautiful acquaintances along the way❤️ Over the 13 years we have changed and grown as a family living here all year round. Alongside that so has the market we helped to create. More and more alternative style campsites have opened and the interest in vintage caravans, tipis and shepherd's huts has grown into the now hugely commercial glamping market. Although the phrase was coined by journalists describing sites like ours, we were never really the glamping types. More Wombles than Waitrose and more Steptoe than Selfridges. We created a unique environment that we hoped would lift people's spirits and remain in their hearts. More than just a holiday. After much soul searching and some tears at bedtime we have decided not to continue with the campsite but to create something fresh. 🌲🔮We are going to offer a completely new experience in a new environment in 2019. It will of course still have the elements of magical design, playful fun, wild nature and soulful retreat that La Rosa Campsite was famous for🔮🌲 Beautiful La Rosa Hotel continues to thrive and delight in the loving hands of our dear friends Helen and Rob ⚓️ Over the coming weeks and months we will be selling some of the vintage caravans and other interesting bits and pieces from the campsite. If you are interested in being informed about the sales of vans and large items, want to enquire about something small or specific that is of sentimental value to you, or you would like to know of our new plans please do email us at the address below. We will send out regular updates and hopefully some tantalising titbits of information as our new adventures begin. MASSIVE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN A PART OF LA ROSA CAMPSITE OVER THE YEARS. ITS BEEN A PLEASURE ❤️❤️❤️
