    We stayed in the farm in the basic tent at the beginning of April,when the nights are still very cold.On advice from another reviewer we took extra lights,blankets,water bottles and wooly hats and we slept very well. Our children had onesies for the evenings and at night ,they shared the cupboard bed,which they loved and it was draught free and warm. We went to the Foresters arms pubs where we had a very warm welcome with our dog,saw the donkeys and had a lovely meal.Also,we went to Beaulieu museum which was a delightful day out for all of us.The New Forest is simply wonderful with all the horses,cows and donkeys roaming around and we will definitely go back.

    We would definitely recommend visiting the Moors Valley Country Park & Forest which is very nearby. There is so much to do there. We paid £9 to park there all day. You can cycle, ride a steam train, take the Play Trail, experience Go Ape and so much more. We would also recommend visiting the Liberty's Owl, Raptor & Reptile Centre. It is self-supporting but you really get to see the animals close up and the staff there are very knowledgeable. We visited for a couple of hours before we arrived at the Farm. We spent our last day visiting a sunny Bournemouth Beach.

    We went into Alton to pick up some batteries for the radio and planned to explore the town but the kids just wanted to get back to the farm. I'd say for a short weekend break you could get away without leaving the farm at all. If we were there longer we probably would have made a trip to Peppa Pig World.

    Mrs. Gargour - From Fri 23 Oct

    This is definately not a site for cooler weather. My family would be much more comfortable in their own tents. The stove did not properly heat the large canvass tent. Inspite of adequate clothing and sleeping gear the set up is poor. The fire doesnt heat the large canvas tent and it doesnt have an adjustable flu to allow the slow burn of wood. So you simply feed the fire endlessly without much warmth. OK for cooking. No frills means you go to an unheated shower block. Not great for children. Quick showers usually easy but stepping out pretty cold and not much fun. I think it should be clear when you book that these large canvas tents are best for weather above 10 degrees. I think the farm is just ok in general standards. I grew up in rural Australia and am used to a working farm. I think the rubber tyres and plastic hay covers piled up look a bit industrial. Might not be related to our farm but you have to drive through them. Also there should be more push to get campers to clean up their plastics. A short walk around the site revealed people had thrown tbeir drinking bottles here and there. Should be some notes to campers to save rubbish from their walks and bin it.

    You are not able to drive cars right up to the tents so guests may like to be aware to pack their belongings into suitable bags which will fit into the wheelbarrows provided to transport to and from the tents. Also, bring spare candles or tea lights if you are staying when the evenings are longer. Wellies are a must on farms. The local area has Stonehenge and also another large stone circle/avenue at Avebury not too far away and the New Forest is only a short drive too. There is the Dorset Shire Horse Centre at Verwood which is a great day out for youngsters as well as older children and if its rainy there is the Romsey Rapids - an indoor water flume park.

    Midgeham has the advantage of being in a beautiful woodland setting which for the children was an adventure of its own with dens scattered around & various rope swings, a 15 minute walk takes you to a beautiful riverside setting which we used for fishing,paddling & picnicking._x000D_ Sammy stocks everything that you could possibly need during your stay,you could turn up here without bringing anything from home, apart from alcohol which they are obviously not licensed to sell, you will find it all there. The farm tour was great fun with lots of information the kids all sitting on a bale of hay in the pick up was a highlight! Another draw for the children were the petting animals, goats, chickens,Shetland ponies,chickens a rabbit & the farm dog Twinkle who the children couldn't get enough of,spending a huge part of every day in with them all!

    Choose your tent wisely. Were in one of the higher up tents. A beautiful view and some sunny spots but with a baby and toddler the hill side trip was quite a struggle.

    There was lots to do locally for a young family with two energetic children. We really enjoyed "the Jolly Farmer" pub, A Day out with Thomas, the playground at Alice Holt, "the Globe" pub in Arlesford and Alton cinema.

    The George in Fordingbrige is a great pub and a visit to Beaulie, if only for the ice cream at the chocolate studio and lunch at Steff's Kitchen is a must! There is also an amazing viewing platform for deer just outside Brokenhurst, with a fantastic area for picnics and bbqs.

    Tips: there is an outdoor BBQ/hob as well as one in the tent (I didn't think was clear from the website) / the honesty shop sells milk, cheese, bread, chicken, bacon, sausages, ice creams (7 year old loved this part), mushrooms, candles, charcoal - so you don't need to bring any of this / Fordingbridge is a must to visit, with the shallow stream for kids to paddle / Deadmans Hill in the New Forest is not far away and a good place to go (when not as hot as July14 there is a stream at the bottom of the hill) / you might want to bring a picnic blanket if you want to sit outside, there are 2 deckchairs per tent, but we liked the blanket as well as its quite stoney around the tent. Great holiday, we are planning our next visit already!

    There were lots to see and do on the farm and some lovely walks. Not far which is a must to visit is the Moors Valley Country Park, a vast beautiful woodland park with loads of walks and cycle routes and a great playground for kids of all ages. Of course there are numerous towns worth visiting in the New Forest and Bournemouth isnt too far if you want some sandy beaches and larger shops.
