You’re not, strictly speaking, ‘camping’ at a Feather Down Farm. You’re staying in ‘tented accommodation’. It’s a small distinction, but it acts as a good indication of what you can expect at this mini-chain of boutique campsites. This is Luxury Camping in roomy three-bedroom pre-erected tents, perfect for the ‘not sure about this camping lark’ section of the community, who might baulk at the idea of trying to put up a tent in the rain. Or for families looking for a good-value alternative to renting a holiday home. Or, indeed, for just about anyone, really – these tented palaces are cool, comfortable and fun. Feather Down Farms recruit farmers with excess, redundant land, then they transport and erect their high-spec, custom-designed tents at the farm, organise the marketing and reservations, and let the farmers take care of the day-to-day management. The Feather Down team and the farmers share the proceeds appropriately; and everyone’s happy.

Home to the Chiddock Pony Stud Farm, the owners are proud to be introducing miniature ponies to the stable for 2012, which will delight younger guests as much as do the trampoline, giant rope swing, and the adventures found in our woods. Here the bluebells come into bloom in early summer and the whole woodland, including shady Midgham Long Copse, home to the tents, is ablaze with purple-blue flowers. In this quiet spot you’ll likely see or hear roe deer, honey buzzards, cuckoos, woodpeckers, kingfishers and owls, as well as the traditional-breed pigs, who roam here year-round. This is den-building country too, and the hosts’ son Oliver will show you the best spots – departing children often leave messages for those who add to their dens. The River Avon is another source of activities, from fishing to paddling to picnicking sat at the furniture crafted by Henry from the woodland’s fallen oaks. The Farm Larder is another highlight, and along with wines from Berry Brothers, you’ll find ingredients for cooking all three daily meals from scratch. The New Forest is home to many a cosy country pub and the owners are always ready to make recommendations.
