The Corbett family have been guardians of Holden Farm for over 100 years and are delighted to share their beautiful home with you.
Set in a stunning spacious field, surrounded by farmland, our traditional campsite allows you to relax and enjoy the countryside. We have no marked pitches, plenty of fire pits and a spotlessly clean facility block. Sit around a roaring fire, stargaze in the Dark Skies National Reserve and listen for the barn owls or watch the bats flying overhead.
The most inviting element of Holden Farm is space – space for children to run around safely, space so you don’t find yourself camping on top of your neighbour and space to enjoy your time with us, in a set up that works for you.
The campsite is within the South Downs National Park, nestled amongst acres of predominantly arable farm. The wild flower meadows and hedge boundaries have led to an abundance of wild native animals, birds and insects.
Holden Farm is home to some very special free-range chickens, a few horses and plenty of sheep. We invite you to watch us at work and learn about our farm.
We encourage you to explore the local area. There are 4 pubs within an hour’s walking distance and plenty of interesting places to discover nearby where you won’t even need to get in your car.
We are just 7 miles from Winchester, the ancient capital of Wessex; 5 miles from the beautiful market town of Alresford and 1 mile from the stunning village of Cheriton, situated at the source of the River Itchen.
“Great facilities, lovely owners, fantastic fire pits in a beautiful spot! Would recommend and definitely going back!”
