Staying at Lightfoot's
There will be four bell tent pitches at Lightfoot's Farm this year, and with the two tents on the 'Orchard' booking that means five tents in total. Orchard can sleep up to ten and each of the others five.
You'll be in a pastoral paddock with an orchard and newly planted nut trees, and maybe even a small pen with a few pigs this year!
Each pitch has a wood-fired hot tub; fire pit; 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 and hob.
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).
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.
Orchard booking includes two tents so its perfect for two couples or young families booking together.
Each tent can host up to five - two in a king bed and three on floor mattresses.
You'll have a wood fired six person hot tub to yourselves.
Western Edge tent has a two person hot tub (although we squeeze four in from time to time ourselves!).
Like the other two pitches it has a king bed with linen, and we can put out up to three floor mattresses which you would bring your own bedding for.
It has a fire pit and its own shower / toilet, and tiny nut trees to the north and east which will hopefully be wonderful fruiting nuts in years to come!
Fire Pit tent has its own rather huge six person hot tub and 'real' fire pit. I always think the pitch has more 'wilderness' feel to the others, but still the luxury of its own shower / toilet.
The tent can sleep up to five. Check out the airbnb listing for more details.
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.
