Brooklands Farm Camping
Sleep in a grassy field under the stars in the New Forest National Park
"We are a family run farm based on the edge of the New forest inside the national park. We have a small but growing herd of lovely Hereford cows you will see dotted around the surrounding fields and possibly wandering along the road if they are out on the forest. We are pleased to be able to share this beautiful place with you"
Victoria & Crispin Sampson
Our large grassy level camping field is open just for a few weekends through the summer and is normally used for grazing our cows or making hay to feed them through the winter. It borders the road through South Gorley and is surrounded by numerous ancient trees. Being within the national park you will see donkeys & ponies wondering past. In addition, you will have direct access to brilliant walks and cycling routes….no need to drive anywhere!
In spring 2022 we planted a new hedgerow surrounding the field to provide a habitat for wildlife as part our commitment towards conservation and our regenerative approach to farming. This year we have transformed the field into a new orchard with over 80 young apple trees of many different varieties, housed in tree guards that are evenly spaced in rows. So if you’ve visited before you will see it looks a little bit different!
We can accept tents, campervans, and small motorhomes but sorry we are not permitted to have caravans.
All arrivals are by prior booking only.
Campfires, Kids, Dogs & Quiet
Sorry we do not allow campfires. This is to protect our new hedgerow, and reduce fire risk and the environmental impact to the national park.
We continue to allow BBQs fuelled by charcoal only, and that are raised off the ground. These should be specifically designed and used only for the purpose of cooking food (i.e. not firepits). In support of the New Forest Action Plan, we are asking campers not to bring disposable barbecues for their stay.
We accept well behaved dogs which must be kept on the lead.
Having a young family ourselves we understand the need for quiet times and so operate a no noise policy after 10.30pm until 7.30am. This also means no music to be played at any time to respect the peace and tranquillity of the area and fellow campers.
We also advise parents of children that our new apple trees are protected by highly barded wire guards and children will therefore need close supervision when playing to avoid catching on these. There will be roped fencing to help people keep their distance.
We will try to respond to all voice and email enquiries within 24 hours during our open season.
Bookings are open mid May – August on pitchup.com.
