Champing TV

Champing™ TV

Our champs are the last word in pop-up hospitality. Everything is set up ready for your arrival and put away when you leave, it’s as if it were only a dream. See our video below for how we can transform an empty, serene church (St Thomas, Friarmere) into a cosy champ and back again, in the blink of an eye (and in the depths of chilly midwinter – check out our red noses)!
