Midgham Farm was the 2016 Prima Baby award-winning Feather Down representative. Its woodland has been in the family since 1790, and today on the farm, ponies live alongside pigs and piglets, alpacas, 3 goats, 2 bunnies, and lambs. Pony grooming is a great activity for horse-loving youngsters, and can be booked with the farmer on arrival. Children will also love the rope swings and climbing ropes plus all the sand pits with sit-on diggers. Just a 15 minute walk away, a long stretch of the River Avon is reserved for guests booking fly fishing (15 April to 30 Sept) or coarse fishing (15 June to 15 March), which can be arranged on the farm. The river is also a wonderful place to swim or paddle. Relax at tents or log cabins spread out on the forest floor, with hammocks between the trees and lots of light coming through the canopy. For the energetic, there’s archery and axe throwing available across the wood.

We visited Midgham farm 2nd Oct, stayed in a log cabin, wasn't entirely sure what to expect. All I can say is do it, the weather was wet but if you have wellies and waterproofs it's not a problem! My sister had a bad back so we didn't go far but her kids 4 & 7yrs had wonderful time just the same collecting leaves, conkers sticks and jumping in big puddles! We got there late Friday so lit the parafin lamps, candles and woodburning stove with the wood/firelighters matches supplied, and we're toasty in no time. Cooking on the woodburner was fun (we also took a small camping stove for a cuppa in the morning). Took extra camping lights too as it's quite dark. The kids loved saying hello to the animals and collecting their eggs for their breakfast which according to the 4 year old he is only going to eat camping chicken eggs now!. The staff are super friendly and make sure you have everything you need and if you do need something during your stay they just can't do enough for you. Thank you for an amazing stay!

This was our very first venture into glamping and while we were a little apprehensive, we really needn't have been. We had a Canvas Frills Tent with our own brilliant, powerful, hot shower and toilet. The tent itself was lovely, with comfy beds and a well equipped kitchen. Our kids, 9 and 11yrs, loved the cupboard bed, and spent hours playing outside on the tyre swings and trampoline, and particularly liked visiting the goats. We only used the stove a couple of times as we were staying in the middle of a heatwave and it really throws out the heat once it gets going! I wouldn't hesitate to stay in the middle of winter with that to warm you up! We stayed a full week, so ventured out a few times. Moors Valley Country Park isn't too far and is worth a visit, as is the Foresters Arms for lovely pub grub. All in all, a lovely chilled week in beautiful surroundings in fabulous weather!

Our children are age 9 and 7 and loved staying on Midgham Farm. They were entertained constantly while we were at the farm playing with the billy goats, feeding the pigs, admiring the horses, collecting eggs from the chicken roost and generally playing with other children on the swing ropes and other facilities. They still talk about it and would love to go back. We had a canvas tent, without shower or hot water, and perched high up on the edge of the forest. It was surprisingly spacious and very cosy and insulated from the weather outside. The beds were very comfortable and the cupboard bed was a big hit with our children. The canvas material keeps out the summer morning light very effectively and we all slept very well. We did miss the electricity and hot water a bit, but coping without these is part of the fun - we still managed to charge iphones in the communal honesty shop in any case. The frozen hot water bottles in the wooden chest seemed to keep our food fresh, even over a period of a few days. The honesty shop stocked some essentials but we bought most of our food at the co-op in Fordingbridge, scarcely a 5-10 minute drive away. There is the option to cook food on the barbeque that comes with the tent or to light up the wood burning stove, either way it was all great fun. The owners and staff were all very pleasant and the tour of the farm on the first day was great fun, they generally seem to consider all requests with a smile.

We stayed here for long weekend. First impressions cottage is very spacious and warm. Has everything you need home from home. Cottage is converted out buildings with enclosed communal garden with other cottages. But you do have your own decking area. Safe and pet friendly. Few bits within the cottage does need updating and maintance for example a shower screen or curtain in main bathroom as for 6 people there is just one shower and an over bath shower head with no screen or bracket. Beds all made up and towels provided which was a bonus. They even left us some milk for our arrival which was a nice touch. The farm is a working farm with few animals and great place for walks. The little shop is great idea for basics. Owner was very helpful and friendly. We look forward to returning soon.
