At the end of the 2017 season we were stunned and very pleased to have been awarded the CPRE Hampshire Award for Rural Enterprise recognising our work with our local community.
Holden Farm Camping at Holden Farm, Cheriton in the South Downs National Park was established to diversify the farming business of a fourth-generation farmer by offering camping where visitors can learn about nature, understand and enjoy the rural landscape and watch a farm at work.
Debbie Jones, Executive Director at Hildon said: “Holden Farm Camping is at heart a very simple campsite offering families a low-cost way of coming to enjoy the countryside.
The judges were impressed with the way that the business has faced up to the challenges that an influx of people presents. Rebecca Corbett has demonstrated a high level of enthusiasm and creativity in making sure that her new business enterprise makes a minimal impact on the beautiful local countryside – especially through her passion for re-cycling, while at the same time bringing benefits to the local economy and the neighbouring community.”
