About Sleepbrook Farm
Tents, campervans and well behaved dogs – yes. Caravans, motorhomes, noisy folk and big groups, sorry – no.
There's good walking from the campsite but it's worth bringing bikes to make the most of the surrounding area under your own steam. You can head east into the New Forest (particularly well-known for its car-free trails and good wildlife spotting opportunities) or head west into the slightly lesser known Cranbourne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cycle the three miles into Fordingbridge for lunch in a café or a picnic in the riverside park. Or you could even cycle to the Sixpenny micro-brewery in Cranborne (01725 762006), and enjoy one of their award-winning real ales in the Tap Room. Cranborne Village (three and a half miles) is the hub of the Cranborne Estate and well worth a visit. Teeming with history, the village boasts the beautiful Manor House, built in the 12th Century as a hunting lodge for King John. As it’s a private residence for Viscount Cranborne (the eldest Son of the seventh Marquess of Salisbury), the Manor House isn’t open to the public, however the beautiful Manor Gardens are open one day a week during the Summer (opening times, and other information available online). It's a 25-minute drive to Bournemouth and the south coast, too.
Food & Drink
It's a mile to the dog-friendly village pub, The Churchill Arms (01425 652147), built in the early 1900s and still doing a decent trade today, with family pub grub and a good host of real ales. There's also a local Post Office and corner shop (Co-Op) in the village, plus a mobile fish and chip van that comes by on Wednesday and Friday evenings. For more options, it's three miles to Fordingbridge.
