The Owner Says
About Brocklands Farm
Families, couples, small groups and dogs – yes. Tents, caravans and motorhomes – no.
For many people one of the best things about our tents is the ability to walk in beautiful countryside straight from them. The South Downs Way is accessible from the top of the farm and there are grass tracks round most of the farm's fields.
Further afield there is an interesting range of places to visit. Best known for its elegant garden, Hinton Ampner (01962 771305) is a wonderful country house with a collection of furniture, paintings and objets d'art. The five hectare site is widely acknowledged as a masterpiece of 20th century design, with highlights including the dell, a sunken garden and the recently restored walled garden. The fascinating maritime heritage at Portsmouth demands a day trip. Here you can wander around HMS Victory, Warrior and the Mary Rose at Portsmouth’s Historic dockyards (023 9283 9766), as well visiting the impressive Royal Navy Submarine Museum (023 9251 0354). The city’s 'Point District' lures tourists with cobbled streets and welcoming pubs, whilst the Spinnaker Tower (023 9285 7520) delivers fabulous coastal views. There is a wide range of habitats on show at the Old Winchester Hill National Nature Reserve. Butterflies can be seen in significant numbers on the hill during the summer months, whilst the reserve's woodland is home to dormice, badgers and deer. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.

West Meon has a Village Shop (01730 829310), providing everyday groceries and local produce. Cuppacheeno Café (07920 427776) is well renowned for being a pit-stop for walkers and cyclists, with a choice of protein packed breakfasts, vitamin fuelled smoothies and excellent coffee, roasted in Winchester! The Winchester Farmers Market can claim to be one of the largest in the country. 80+ producers attend this twice monthly market selling many meats, cheese, milk, cream, honey, breads, and fresh smoked fish. Delicious meals can be found at The Thomas Lord (within walking distance in West Meon), The Shoe at Exton (good for a lunch stop on a long walk as well as an evening meal) and Ye Olde George in East Meon.
