Try Glamping with Featherdown Farms at Canfields Farm in Sussex. The Farm is primarily an beef farm in West Sussex almost directly on the Surrey border just an hour from London, the farm will definitely also need help with bottle feeding of lambs from the Easter Weekend onwards. Canfields has a tent for groups of up to 10 people as well as the classic tents. The tents are sited on the edge of woodland, while Canfields itself nestles between the North and South Downs. Another special feature is the outdoor water-play area of waterfall shower with sandpit.
Canfields has a tradition of sale from the farm gate. The entire friendly herd of 30 suckler cows can be traced back to three foundation mothers, Peggy, Fox and Delight, whose well-being is noted by inspectors as being excellent and stress-free. Guests’ dogs can’t be accommodated at Canfields.
The fantastic bluebell woods are perfect for den-building, stream-damming and deer, butterfly and woodpecker spotting. On the farm, you can collect eggs from the Loman chickens and get to know the Goodwood lambs. The cows in the field next to you and horses at livery will be happy to keep you company. A great timber undercover area at the camp’s centre means the weather won’t inhibit togetherness or the barbecue taste sensations! In front of the tents, a rustic playground and play pitch is ideal for football and badminton outside, and more.
Excellent walking and cycling is on your doorstep on the South Downs Way, and scenic towpath walks and canal boat trips can be taken locally. Fishing can be enjoyed at Furnace Lakes Fisheries nearby. The village of Rudgwick boasts four local pubs headed up by the Fox just ten minutes’ walk away. Try racing at Glorious Goodwood, Fontwell or Ascot, or golf at any of five courses within five miles. The market towns of Chichester and Horsham are also nearby.
