About Us

Fallow Fields Camping was first tested at Selson Farm, near Sandwich in Kent.  David was considering diversifying his top fruit farm and Lex was looking for a business idea for a career change from marketing and advertising.   After an initial pop-up test period, Lex and David joined forces in 2017 to create a permanent campsite at Selson Farm.  Building on this initial success they purchased Lathe Barn on Romney Marsh and then took on Wild With Nature in Norfolk.

With a mix of rural and corporate expertise, the experience of building a campsite from a bare field, managing the planning process for new and existing buildings and operating sites that range from BYO tents to beautifully appointed luxury shepherd’s huts and yurts, the Team have a wealth of experience you can benefit from.

But it’s not just about ‘building it and they will come’.  You need to know how to get them to your site and when they are there, how to ensure they have an excellent customer experience.  With Lex’s blue-chip marketing background and David’s understanding of the rural environment, combined with 6 years of establishing and running our own sites we have the additional skills you’ll need to ensure your venture has the best possible chance of success.
