Located in the small historic village of Farley, just 6 miles from the cathedral City of Salisbury, Wiltshire, sits a mixed arable and livestock farm that has been under the stewardship of the Parsons family for over 600 years. This quiet, rural environment is the perfect setting for Farley Camping, a new and exciting venture for the farm, offering a tranquil, family-friendly experience with a focus on local, sustainable produce and getting back to nature.
The village benefits from a host of unique buildings and amenities, including a church & almshouses (believed to have been designed by Sir Christopher Wren, for his good friend Sir Stephen Fox), a cricket club, and a children’s play area, all surrounded by unspoilt country and woodland walks. The local pub (the Hook & Glove) serves as a meeting place for the locals and visitors alike and is renowned for its guest ales and hearty meals. Running just north of the village is Clarendon Way (also known as Monarchs Way), an ancient trail that runs from Salisbury to Winchester, past the ancient ruins of Clarendon Palace, which was a prominent royal residence in the 13th & 14th centuries, with the park being the largest in medieval England.

Three generations of the family work on the farm during the summer months, to help with the harvest and to prepare the campsite for the many visitors that come seeking peace and relaxation.
The farm is home to the Traditional Meat Company (www.traditional-meat.co.uk), which supplies award-winning produce to the campsite and many local shops and restaurants. Traditional Meat company also runs the BBQ events on the weekend nights, catering for all with a range of delicious dishes using locally sourced produce.
