New management here!
Fairford Airshow Camping at Townsend Farm is being managed by the farm owners Leonie & John McIntosh for 2018.
Had a fantastic time at RIAT last year and the family camping experience was second to none.
Just returned from a couple of nights camping here. 2 adults and 2 kids staying in the Navy field. Our first time staying and we will most definitely be returning.

Amazing campsite friendly staff and loads of space. The facilities were perfect and just what I needed. I was camped right under the flight paths and it was great value for money.
Stayed a few years now, but I have to say this year has been the best. I do believe it’s now under new management and you can really tell. The loos/showers have to be the cleanest I have have been in while camping.

Excellent staff very friendly can’t wait for next year! The football pitch kept my three boys entertained. The toilets were kept clean regularly and plenty of fresh water. When working the showers were really good. Well done guys!
