A lovely stay in glorious sunshine 🌞

Barracks Farm
Had a lovely stay to explore Chawton, Selbourne and see our daughter. Quiet lanes to cycle on, even for a beginner like me. The site is very well kept, open aspect, welcoming owners and the added bonus of seeing orphan lambs and a calf being bottle fed every afternoon.

A great site and always a warm welcome

Barracks Farm
For those who are not aware, the lovely owners Sarah and Rory moved home across the family farm site and moved the CL field with them (it used to be Starter Gate farm). The new field (now at Barracks Farm) is a much sunnier south facing field giving a chance to see lovely sunsets and a much more open view of the sky (good for satellite watching). All the pitches face south and overlook another field to the front where at the moment orphan lambs and a calf can be seen playing. As with the previous site the CL backs onto the caravan store but this didn't cause us any issues regards noise. The pitches give a lot of room and we didn't feel squashed in. The field is relatively flat and level, with a water tap at the centre of the fence so it's not too far to go, with recycling facilities and rubbish bins by the field entrance and the toilet waste point close by. We have just come back from a lovely long weekend there plus were there for a week's holiday a few weeks ago (just as they first opened the new CL site). It's a fantastic location for exploring the area, close to a lot of good walks, the Watercress Line steam railway and within easy distance of the south coast. We look forward to returning soon to what has become our "go to" local CL.

A very welcoming CL

Barracks Farm
The owner couldn't have been more helpful when booking. Very clear and comprehensive printed guidance to the site. These are strange times with Covid precautions in place, and so payment was made online with a prompt confirmation. Access to the site is really easy. The site itself was well kept with close mown pitches with an electric hook-up between each couple of pitches. Water pressure for fresh water is good and all disposal points are well kept. Some care is needed in the centre of the field (where the grass is kept longer). I saw two units have some trouble manouvering as the ground is quite soft in places. I was caught out by not calling at the house on my arrival (in normal times I would always call at the house on arrival, but did not do so as the owner seemed anxious to avoid the unnecessary contact). As a result on the following morning after pitching overnight, when I was the only remaining visitor, I was asked to pack my 'van and move to another pitch as the pitch I had sited on had been promised to another visitor expected to arrive. It was something of an irritation as we had a timed booking to visit a local attraction, and the request to move seemed odd when the remainong four pitches were all vacated that morning. As I said in normal circumstances thus would have been avoided by personal contact. I have only given three stars for the beauty of the surroundings as this is a quiet site which is bounded on all sides with trees and hedges, and so there are no views outside the site. I would be happy come again, but would check which pitches were available.

A lovely little CL

Barracks Farm
We have visited this CL a few times and even during Covid-19 it does not disappoint! Pitches are currently allocated on booking and are marked out with temporary boundaries to maintain social distancing. As in the previous review, cleaning products/sanitisers are available to use. The owners are available if needed but with payment in advance, it makes for a very swift and contact free arrival. Well done and thank you Sarah and Rory for all the effort you have put in to make your lovely site feel safe. We love this site, would definately recommend and will definately be back! :)

Awesome C L

Barracks Farm
Beautifully kept CL and in the current climate the social distancing is laid out for you including sanitizer at the elsan and the water point. We stayed here for 11 days and 4 days with family and we will definately be staying here again. Rory and Sarah were lovely. Any negative comments in the earlier reviews can be ignored in our view as there is no foundation for them. Thank you guys
