Staying at Lightfoot's
Lightfoot's is 10 mins to the coast to the south, and on the edge of the New Forest National park - forest proper ten minutes to the north. Market and Quay town of Lymington is ten minutes, and Bournmouth and Southampton twenty. Salisbury, Winchester, and the Jurassic Coast are other popular visits from here. We have a bus stop at the edge of the field, and good trains from Brockenhurst.
There are four pitches at Lightfoot's Farm this year, Orchard has two tents and can sleep up to ten and the others are single tents sleeping five each.
Each pitch has a wood-fired hot tub; fire pit; picnic table and a shower / eco loo. The fire pits won't be available to use during 'fire warning' periods. You can use a shared field kitchen with a small fridge, freezer, hob and dining table.
The tents sleep up to five in total in one king sized bed with bedding provided, and up to three floor mats (we provide the mats, you provide the bedding). Message us if you'd like to pitch additional tents.
Lightfoot's Farm produces microgreens - check out the rest of the website, and is located about a 10 min drive from the sea; and 10 mins from the New Forest 'proper'.
Hopefully you'll love it!
The tents are robust, but we do close the site when there are high wind weather warnings of sustained gusts above 45mph. Any such closures are re-bookable.
A shared field shelter provides an option for cooking, eating, or playing a game.
The tents are cosy - we provide bedding for the king bed, and mats if you book for more than three - you provide the bedding for these. Each pitch has a wooden hot water shower and eco-loo - see below.
We grow microgreens at Lightfoot's farm, and help people grow their own with a simple grow at home kit. Ask if you'd like a look around or to buy some super nutritious, super tasty greens.
