New at Nesta Camping for 2022
Revival, restoration and reunion is the name of the game at Nesta: a luxury campsite on the edge of Frome. This tranquil little haven, which sold out last year, could be the perfectly-indulgent escape everyone’s looking for. It opens from June 17th to October 9th 2022 and has entertainment for all the family.
There are 40 beautifully-decorated warm yurts, a quirky cocktail bar, live music performances and delicious, locally-sourced vegetarian food in the bistro, which is open six nights a week. Not to mention hot tubs, massage and yoga classes. Rustic yet romantic, glamping is perfect when one half of a relationship loves camping and the other doesn’t.
For toddlers, there is an onsite kindergaten run by Steiner-inspired group from Frome called Hearty Crafty. Wild Tribe will offer their forest school at the weekends and not forgetting the teens, who have their own games room. This makes it easier for parents to kick back with a gin and tonic and a good book.
Consistently stylish, holistic and elegantly evolving, the team behind Nesta normally organise festivals but have turned their hand to creating this gorgeous glampsite. Handpicking the best low-key-but-luxurious aspects of a family-friendly festival.
Listed as one of the best campsites in the Guardian last year, the team behind the bijou retreat are constantly challenges themselves to offer a really memorable experience for all the family.

Revival, restoration and reunion is the name of the game at Nesta: a luxury campsite on the edge of Frome. This tranquil little haven, which sold out last year, could be the perfectly-indulgent escape everyone’s looking for.
The Big Red Bus will be back serving cocktails as last year. And new for this year, Nesta will have an additional bus offering accommodation. These are not ordinary buses, many miracles have happened onboard. Travelling to Baghdad, they transported people serving as human shields against the war in Iraq. Not only that they’ve been all over Europe, Le Mans, Glastonbury, Shambala but now will be at Nesta all summer.
Bex Luther, Co Founder says: “Nesta is a sanctuary for those seeking nourishment for the soul. The team has created a warm and cosy atmosphere, so you can completely drop into your natural surroundings and indulge.
From wholesome local vegetarian food to long soaks in wood-fired hot tubs, not to mention tension-melting massages followed by sunset cocktails and live music in the bar. We really can’t wait to welcome you into our little slice of heaven this summer.”
The grounds are both tamed and gently wild, just a stone’s throw from Frome town centre, so there is so much to do close by. The site is 30 minutes from Bath, a historic spa town and easily accessed on the cycle route. Bruton and the Hauser and Wirth art gallery is nearby. As is Mells, Longleat and Wells Cathedral.
Nestle in at Nesta: unwind, unplug and relax.
