Or why not just sit back in the evening and watch the sun set over the valley before snuggling into a real bed surrounded by the quiet noises of the Hampshire countryside?

The farm offers so much to do walking and cycling or simply watching the land being cultivated or the buzzards soaring over your head. The Meon Valley Trail, South Downs Way and Monarchs Way are all nearby. Or you can stroll to the picturesque village of West Meon with its delightful pub, award winning butcher, community shop and flourishing caf?.

Our spacious safari tents, Yellowhammer and Lapwing, are situated at either end of a lovely grassy meadow. They are far enough apart to ensure privacy and your complete peace, but near enough to walk to if your friends are in the other tent. Both tents are the same size and are similarly, but individually, furnished. Each sleeps six people in a king bedroom, twin bedroom and double cabin bed. Each bed is ready made with luxurious cotton bed linen and a dual tog duvet to cater for any temperature. There is a bathroom cabin with toilet, basin and luxury shower and wood burner. Towels, toiletries (eco-friendly) and other essentials are all provided.

In the heart of the off-grid living area is a wood-burning range with a large hob top and roomy oven for cooking. The flaming wood-burner will keep you warm and toasty, while the solar-powered fairy lights and paraffin lamps will ensure you are never left in the dark.

As well as the wood burner we provide a gas ring for brewing up a quick cup of tea or coffee or cooking when you do not fancy lighting the stove. The kitchen is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, basic cooking utensils including sharp knives, things like cling film and tinfoil and everyday ingredients such as oil, vinegar, tea, coffee and fresh herbs. Tea towels and hand towels are also provided along with washing up essentials. Plus, there is a small solar fridge for keeping your wine and milk nice and cool. Water comes straight off the mains, so there is no need to lug heavy bottled water with you.

We have activities to suit your every mood. There is a chest full of your favourite board games or you can simply chat around the mesmerising wood-burner. Try your hand at identifying the animals or birds you saw during the day or plan tomorrows adventures together using our maps or ideas folder.

Outside, there is a sofa, chairs and table to ensure you can watch the sunset in comfort and style. There is even a fire pit where you can toast marshmallows or barbecue.

The tent is set in a spacious field planted with native grasses that are a magnet for insects, birds and other wildlife. There is plenty of space to run around, relax and enjoy the open space. Along one edge is an area of woodland, perfect for exploring, building dens and collecting wood for the campfire.

Many of the fields on our family 260-acre farm have private grass tracks left along the edges, so that you can walk the Hampshire countryside in peace without having to go anywhere near a road. Step out in a different direction and you can stroll along the Meon Valley Trail and into the picturesque village of West Meon in about 20 minutes. The Nature Reserve and hill fort of Old Winchester Hill with views across the Solent is also a popular route.

The South Downs Way and Old Winchester Hill are accessible from the top of the farm. It is also possible to reach the Monarchs Way, Wayfarers Walk, Hangars Way and Staunton Way as well as many other footpaths. Maps are available in the tent. For nature lovers the nearby Chappetts Copse is worth a visit in late May. It has the largest population in Britain of the rare sword-leaved helleborine and other rare orchids flowering at that time.

Part of the South Downs Way are cyclable and there are other cycle routes nearby, including the Meon Valley Trail which is ideal for children because it is so flat. There are mountain bike trails at Queen Elizabeth Country Park and around East Meon.

If you can tear yourself away from the barbecue and home-cooked meals there are some good local pubs. The Thomas Lord is named after the founder of Lords Cricket ground, who is buried in the village. They serve delicious locally-sourced meals and have a beautiful garden with pizza oven.

For a more casual meal or snack Springs Caf? behind the village shop is the place to go. Here you can get an all-day breakfast, tasty soup or quiche for lunch and the best freshly made cakes.

Both The Shoe (at Exton) and The Hurdles at Droxford can be reached from the Meon Valley Trail and make good refreshment points on a longer walk. The food at both is excellent. The Shoe has a waterside garden which is a delight on a sunny day.

Walk (or drive) eastwards and you can find Ye Olde George Inn at East Meon, another pub that serves good food.

Within 10 miles of Brocklands Farm you can try your hand at fly fishing, visit Hinton Ampner House with its beautiful gardens or explore the market town of Petersfield with the Flora Twort Gallery and Farmers Market. For families Butser Ancient Farm, with its chance to get hands-on experience of the Iron Age and a ride on the Watercress Line are both extremely popular.

The historic town centre of Winchester is full of interesting streets and ancient buildings. Of particular note are the Cathedral (make sure you find the statue of the diver who stopped the building sinking into the marshes), the working Water Mill and King Arthurs Round Table and Great Hall.
