About Haddon Copse Farm

Suitable For

Campers, glampers – yes. Caravans, campervans, motorhomes, dogs, noisy groups – no.

Nearby

On the doorstep, walking options allow you to discover a little more of the farm, following footpaths through the surrounding cow fields, sometimes accompanied by pigs and sheep. A short drive into the Dorset Downs provides further routes. Walk in the footsteps of Thomas Hardy and his characters or swim at various points along the River Stour, renowned for its clear, appealing waters. The Iron Age fort Hambledon Hill (01297 489481), is a few miles away with a steep 20 minute climb to the top. The slopes are trodden in interesting history but today it's a peaceful place, home to a nature reserve preserving the Adonis blue butterfly that flourishes on the chalkland downs. Sturminster Newton has a good collection of pubs and shops but travelling a little further to spots like Sherbourne and Shaftesbury is an excellent choice.

Food & Drink

The farm produces award-winning organic meat under a separate brand name, 'Angel Cottage Organics', which is available onsite during the camping season, along with their free range eggs. Order the night before and they'll be delivered to your tent along with local organic milk, freshly baked bread and organic butter. With advanced notice you can also ask for sausages, chicken, lamb and pork from the freezer. For a good pub, try The Antelope Inn (01258 817295; 1 mile) The Green Man (01258 920022; 2½ miles) or The Ibberton (01258 817956; 4 miles).

Camping at its best!

This is one of the best camping experiences we've had in the UK. Everything about Haddon Copse Farm is exceptional. Let's start with, Tom, the owner. He was kind, thoughtful and made the place feel very welcoming. He was available and happy to chat with everyone, but never imposed himself. In fact, when we had a disaster with our car breaking down on the penultimate day of camping, Tom went above and beyond to help us. Thank you!! The atmosphere created at Haddon Copse is magical. With only seven pitches, there is lots of space and an amazing view of the valley. It's quiet, peaceful and everyone is respectful of others. No loud music, no parties and no massive gatherings. We met other lovely like minded families and our kids loved meeting up with others in the really friendly space. The facilities are well maintained and cleaned to a high standard. There are local products available to buy for breakfast from Tom's farm. There are lots of lovely places to visit on the doorstep of the camp site. Overall, it was an absolutely lovely experience and we can't wait to go again next year!

Peaceful, thoughtful retreat

We loved everything about Haddon Copse; the layout of the field is lovely with so much space around each pitch and gorgeous views. We loved the thoughtful nature of the site and its ethos, with a fire pit for each pitch, mown pathways, the car-free field and handy barrows for unloading! The morning deliveries of milk etc was fabulous. Facilities were spotless and ample for the size of the size with plenty of hot water. Thanks to Tom who couldn’t have been more helpful.

Loved it!

We didn’t get a chance to meet ours hosts as we were pretty much always out. We only stayed for one night in a bell tent but the set up was lovely. We pulled up and it had instructions as to what to do/where to go etc. Which I loved. The bell tent was huge and had great space around and between each tent. There was 4 adults and still so much room in there. The toilet and shower areas were really clean and had sanitiser spray to use in both toilets. The view was amazing. Couldn’t fault it really. But loved it, will definitely return when and if we decide to come back that way. To top it off it had an amazing view.

Hassle free glamping with the kids

I have just spent 3 nights here with my 2 daughters (5 & 12) in a bell tent and had a lovely time. This was our first girls trip and with some pre-trip planning (food and excursions) it went very well. The bell tent was nice and light so we didn't have to use torches or lanterns until much later in the evening which preserved the battery life. The mattresses were fine for the kids, I was able to double up mine as we had 4 in the tent and this made for a slightly comfier night, I'm used to a memory foam mattress and struggle away from home. Tom popped by to make sure we were ok and I was able to purchase everything to get a roaring bbq/fire going on the site, kindling, coal and logs at a very reasonable price. The showers and washing up sinks had plenty of hot water and the facilities are well managed and kept clean. There is a freezer for refreezing cool packs and the odd surprise chicken roaming the site :) The weather wasn't warm enough for beaches while there so we ventured to Monkey World one day and the cinema in Yeovil another. I didn't get to sample any of the organic produce from the farm as my cool box was too well stocked but if we return I will take less for sure.

Getting There

Haddon Copse Farm is situated on the Sturminster Newton to Hazelbury Bryan road – do not take the fingerpost turning to Fifehead Neville but continue for 150 yards and you will see their wooden farm sign. At the top of the track, on the left, there is a car-parking area. Park here and use one of the barrows to take your belongings to one of the seven pitches marked in the field. No vehicles on the campsite field. Settle yourselves in and the owners will come and see you at some point.
