You will be staying on the farm with wonderful hosts, Sammy and Henry, an ideal spot for a family holiday in the New Forest. Their woodland has been a part of the Sykes family since 1790. The farm is home to the Chiddock Pony Stud Farm but you will meet other animals like sheep, goats, pigs, ducks, chicken, sheep and cows. Relax in our spacious tents and log cabins spread out beneath the forest canopy – after all, in 2021 the Irish News described Midgham as the ideal spot for a digital detox.
All the charms of the New Forest are on your doorstep when you stay at Midgham. It’s a place of idyllic glades, ancient woodland and open moors where ponies, cattle, donkeys and deer roam free. Should you tire of nature then just 10 minutes away is the New Forest Water Park and Somerley House where you'll find all manner of fairs, activities and festivals, something for all ages.
Feeling adventurous? Visit the Go Ape tree-top trail (9 miles away) and Moors Valley Country Park (5 miles). To complete your adventure, visit the medieval city of Salisbury and Stonehenge to get a glimpse of our Neolithic past.
An abundance of activities will keep you occupied during your stay at Midgham. They range from rope swings, sand pits, fly fishing (between 15 April and 30 September), coarse fishing (15 June to 15 March), archery, axe throwing, swimming or paddling in the nearby legendary Hampshire Avon. The farm welcomes new arrivals every spring so children can help out with the newborns and really get a feel for life on the farm - bottle feeding the lambs always goes down a treat!
At the end of the day, gather round one of the four campfire areas, roast marshmallows and share your farm adventures before retiring exhausted but happy to your comfy bed.
Electric car charging is available at Midgham farm.
