Wonderful glamping experience

Krystyna and Burce could not have been more helpful hosts, and we had a brilliant long weekend with our two teenageers. It was our first glamping experience and we really enjoyed the space and ease of camping in this way. We cooked, BBQ'd and sat around the fire pit, as well as walked from the site to do river swimming and loved being surrounded by the pygmy goats, sheep, alpacas and guinea fowl. Defintely recommend.

Beautiful Quirky Accommodation

We had the pleasure of being Reaching Views’s first guests and received a lovely warm welcome from Krystyna and Bruce who were the perfect hosts, offering the true glamping experience. The location is perfect if you love nature and animals, we loved waking up to the alpacas and pigmy goats and to hear the sound of the roosters. The yurt is dressed perfectly and inside it felt like a whole other destination. The outdoor kitchen perfect for the rainy weather and outdoor shower were also a top treat and the fire pit was a great add. Would absolutely recommend to all who are looking for a stay either as a couple or a small group of friends. My only suggestion to Krystyna and Bruce is to perhaps consider a slightly larger fridge for those on a longer stay and perhaps extending the bamboo so the seclusion from their main property prevents being overlooked. Thank you for an amazing stay. We added some photos to our Instagram account a_cruelty_free_life which has a highlights reel of our weekend photos and showcases the property in all its glory. Thanks again Krystyna and Bruce and good luck for future stays!

Response from Reaching Views at Blakes Farm

Grace, thank you for the lovely write up. Just to say we have now extended the hazel hurdles so the area is not overlooked and will also accommodate a larger fridge. Amazing photos on your Instagram feed. Best wishes, Krystyna and Bruce.

Getting There

Whether you are approaching from the north (via A24) or the south (from the A27), head towards Steyning on the A283, turning towards Ashurst on the B2135, just north of Steyning. Blakes Farm is on the right after about two-and-a-half miles. The site is half an hour from Gatwick airport by car and the nearest train station is Shoreham-by-Sea, 16 miles away. There's no taxi rank so a taxi for the onward journey should be booked in advance.
