Andrea's Farm Breaks Keepers Hut

1 unit · Glamping1 acre · Corfe Castle, Dorset, South West England
Andrea's Farm Breaks is Keepers Hut glamping accommodation run alongside a working farm campsite in the heart of Purbeck. Andrea is pleased to offer a little luxury for those who want to camp at Downshay Farm in a comfortable bed. Farm is a working farm in the heart of the Isle of Purbeck, ideally located for exploring the stunning World Heritage Site coastline. The Pike family has farmed here since 1956. The farmhouse is largely Victorian although parts of the house and some farm buildings are much older. The accommodation looks out over the lovely views of Corfe Castle and the Purbeck Hills. The seaside town of Swanage is just over 4 miles away as are the sandy beaches of Studland Bay. Local footpaths and Swanage Steam Railway also make exploring Purbeck easy, and we are a few minutes’ walk from Harmans Cross Station. Enjoy the sandy beaches of Shell Bay, Studland and Swanage or go rock pooling or fossil hunting at Kimmeridge Bay. The Coastal Path will take you along the coast to Durlston Country Park, Dancing Ledge and Winspit. The deserted village of Tyneham and its own bay is a short drive away, then follow the scenic road over the Ranges to Lulworth and Durdle Door. Local attractions include Monkey World and Bovington Tank Museum, and a walk through the RSPB bird sanctuary at Arne to Poole Harbour is recommended.

Shepherd's huts near Brockenhurst guide

Overview

Nestled within New Forest National Park, the picturesque village of Brockenhurst welcomes campers to South East England pubs, shops, and tea rooms. Campsites, cabin rentals, caravan parks, and glamping sites allow campers to stay and play directly in New Forest and hike the England Coast Path, the U.K.’s newest national trail. Across The Solent in the English Channel, explore the Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty features iconic cliffs and beaches covering nearly half of the island. Returning inland, Cranborne Chase AONB sits northeast of Brockenhurst with shepherd hut rentals amongst rare chalk grasslands, chalk escarpments, and chalk river valleys.

Where to go

New Forest National Park

Just moments from Brockenhurst, majestic trees, epic viewpoints, and wildlife sanctuaries await in New Forest National Park. Oak-lined trails weave through the park and provide refuge to rare species and birdlife, including snipe, curlew, and redshank. Campsites and holiday parks managed by Camping in the Forest offer tent and caravan pitches with access to electricity, showers, and toilets. Wake up and traverse the park’s historic walking routes—look out for New Forest ponies roaming free on the land.

Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Take a ferry across The Solent strait to Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where chalk cliffs and sandy beaches cover half of the island’s coastline. Enjoy sunshine and sand at Whitecliff Bay, take a chairlift to the top of Needles’ chalk stacks, or visit the medieval Carisbrooke Castle. Family-friendly campsites, cottage rentals, and unique glamping sites are available throughout the area with full hookups, firepits, and swimming pools.  

Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Less than an hour from Brockenhurst, campers will find Cranborne Chase AONB, known for its chalk land features and dark sky preserve. Cranborne Chase’s many trails are ideal for nature walks, cycling, and horseback riding. They also provide unique viewpoints of Fovant Badges, a cluster of military badges cut into the chalk hills of Wiltshire. Privately-run camping parks, caravan sites, and unique holiday home rentals within the AONB range from levelled pitches with firepits to eco-friendly shepherd’s huts. Most campsites provide full hookups, showers, and toilets.

When to go

Camping near Brockenhurst is a year-round activity, though seasonal weather patterns can impact access and activities. Summer is the peak season with warmer temperatures and lack of rain. Expect larger crowds and make reservations to guarantee a shaded pitch. Winters are long and cold with temperatures dropping drastically. Though it is rare to see a drop below -3°C, campers should come equipped for cold-weather camping from late fall to early spring.
