Thistledown Farm launches haiku competition

Outdoor enthusiasts could be 17 syllables away from a stay at Thistledown Farm, which has just launched an exciting poetry competition to coincide with the reopening of its café.

Thistledown Farm is inviting creative locals to discover their inner poet and be in with the chance of winning a two-night stay for a family of five at the Cotswold campsite.

The haiku competition, which runs till Tuesday 28 February 2017 and also includes a £50 voucher for the café and two bags of firewood, is in celebration of the reopening of Thistledown’s Fieldfare Café after its winter break.

The exciting competition requires entrants to write an original haiku, a three line poem with the first line five syllables, the second seven and the last line five, on the subject of camping.

With free rein on the topic, whether based on good or bad camping experiences, the fun challenge offers the chance to get creative in a bid to win the prize.

The judging panel includes award-winning local author Sue Limb, poet Laura Webb, and writer, editor and comedian Betsy Vriend, with the winner being announced at the beginning of March.

The prize, worth over £130, offers flexible terms and conditions to give nature lovers the chance to stay in the family-run farm, situated on a beautiful 70-acres site in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For full terms and conditions, visit and to enter, email with the subject haiku competition.
