The chances are the area around Brocklands Farm will have charmed you before you even arrive. The countryside drive – think medieval villages and working farms – is simply superb. But this is just the warm-up act. Even after such a memorable prelude, this brand new glampsite doesn’t disappoint. A secluded working farm, Brocklands is surrounded by Hampshire’s stunning Meon Valley, making a wonderfully rural backdrop for all those holiday snaps.
The demeanour here is relaxed to the extreme. Removed from the masses of tourism, there’s little to do on Brocklands Farm itself but absorb the natural environment. The site's two canvas cottages (sleeping six each) have been thoughtfully placed with far-reaching countryside views. The tents are well catered for, with a bathroom cabin (at the back of the tent) with a compost loo, basin and hot water for the shower, provided by a dedicated wood burner. There’s plenty of space for children to tire themselves out on the grassy field, whilst parents can kick back with a glass of wine on the comfortable outside decking.
Whenever you decide to up the tempo, there are plenty of outdoor activities nearby, including The South Downs Way, which is accessible from the top of the farm. Rising and dipping for over 100 miles between Winchester and Beachy Head, The South Downs Way offers some of England’s’ finest walks. If undertaken in its entirety, the path is best taken from west to east, taking advantage of the prevailing wind, Eastbourne’s transport services and the psychological appeal of ending at the coast. Steyning (the halfway point) marks a transition between mostly wooded sections and more exposed chalk uplands.
Brocklands Farm is certainly a site that owes a lot to its surrounding countryside and villages, but that shouldn’t retract from the splendour of the place itself. The facilities here are well maintained, whilst Buffy and Hugh (the owners) are wonderfully welcoming and on hand to provide helpful advice on local walks and cycling routes. So the package is complete – a countryside setting to relax and a wealth of outdoor activities on the doorstep.
The Owner Says
Guests love the fact that there are only two tents in a beautiful meadow with stunning views, so the peace and tranquility is something very special. The views will rejuvenate you with their sheer beauty and inside the tent everything is provided for a truly relaxing holiday. Children can play happily in the meadow or adjoining wood while the adults watch the sunset on the platform. Once the sun sets a BBQ is provided and a campfire pit for toasting marshmallows. This is definitely the place to unwind and enjoy the natural environment.
Should you be feeling more energetic there are also many beautiful walks, both on and off the farm, picturesque villages to explore and a myriad of places to visit appealing to both children and adults. These can be explored on our site: www.brocklandsfarm.co.uk
