Mellow Farm lies along the River Wey, in the parish of Headley and all three camping fields lie alongside the river…
The Art of Relaxation
As a result, you can relax close to its sound, watch the sun go down and listen to the occasional mooing cow and definitely the odd cockerel without having to worry about your mobile phone!
You are welcome to wander around the farm animal trail, just pick up a leaflet from the reception to give you a self-guided tour. Both kids and adults can splash around in the river for hours or explore the wood with our Woodland Trail.
Walking and Cycling
Cyclists can ride round the lanes to Frensham Ponds and Commons, Alice Holt Forest or take the bikes on the car to Queen Elizabeth Country Park for some more serious off-road cycling. Apart from the Commons and Ponds at Frensham there are plenty of places to walk including the Shipwright’s Way, an 80-kilometer path which goes to Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard and is open to cyclists and walkers.
Food and Drink
The Blue Bell pub in Dockenfield offers excellent food and beer in a beautiful location and is only 45 minutes on foot or 5 minutes by car. There are several other pubs close by but not within walking distance, just ask for details at reception. Alternatively Alton, Farnham and Petersfield offer a range of different types of food.
While we try to organise the best weather for you, we don’t always succeed but there are lots of other places to visit in the area. In Farnham is the Castle and Museum and around it is Birdworld and Tilford Rural Life Centre. Alton is the start of the Watercress Line and has the Curtis Museum while beyond is Gilbert White’s House in Selborne and Jane Austen’s in Chawton.
