Last weekend we tried out a campsite we’d not been to before – Mellow Farm. For us this is a good find as it isn’t far from South London, just off the A31 near Farnham. Perfect for a one night stay.
Finding the campsite was a bit tricky, but that was mainly down to my poor map reading! Although there weren’t any signs even when we got close.
When we did arrive, we found ourselves in the middle of someone’s wedding! The farm hires out a barn for functions and the wedding party had taken over part of a field with gazebos and their tents.
The most exciting thing about this site is that it has a river running through camping fields. We were there on a very hot sunny weekend and the site was full of children enjoying jumping into the water and paddling.
We were assigned the ox-bow field, which is a small field bounded by the river and surrounded by trees. Its disadvantage was that there is only a water tap at the top of the next field… which would have been less of a problem if we’d remembered to take our water containers! Buy hey, you need to forget something each time, that’s part of the adventure.
As well as trying out a new site, we tried out a new campfire menu… but that will be the subject of our next post.
If you fancy trying our Mellow Farm, be aware that it is only open at weekends. You can see how it scored against our other favourites here: Campsites in England
