Carry on Champing! Stay overnight in a Churches Conservation Trust church

Find peace with a night by candlelight in one of England’s treasured country churches, with The Churches Conservation Trust’s ‘champing’ breaks.

Champers enjoy a two-day, one-night break at one of three historic churches, with the building to themselves, surrounded by rural simplicity and hundreds of years of history.

Champing is the ultimate ‘slow tourism’ escape, with England’s historic churches offering their own unique havens of tranquility, a peaceful night’s sleep interrupted only by the sounds of the natural world, and time to explore the beauty of the surrounding countryside at your own pace by day.

They are currently offering champing at the Church of St Cyriac and St Julitta in the village of Swaffham Prior, near Cambridge, at All Saints’ Church, Aldwincle, Northamptonshire and at the Church of St Mary the Virgin in Fordwich, Kent.
