2019 to boast a new flower meadow
Here at Brook Meadow we are super excited with our new adventure for 2019. In the pipeline we have an amazing floral meadow planned expected to bloom in May.
We have planted some beautiful flowers including English Bluebells, Cornflowers and Foxgloves.
The meadow is accessible to all camping guests. It can be enjoyed as a place to enjoy a traditional English picnic, a beautiful Instagram photo background or an educational field. The meadow and the vegetation is extremely important to Brook Meadow's ecological system and will bring an abundance of interesting wildlife to the campsite.
It is extremely important for Brook Meadow to offer a compact area of organic plants to provide pollen for the bee's as we are aware of the extreme decline of the species. We do our utmost best to protect our local wildlife and enjoy the educational opportunities this opens to the children on site.
You'll feel like Snow White in the 45 acres of woodland offering a happy home to butterflies, birds, bugs and many other animals. On site we also have some very friendly, inquisitive cows, happy free-range hens, delightful ducks and cool Canadian geese.
Our campsite is highly sought after and we get booked up very quickly so we recommend booking your favourite pitch for your 2019 holiday as soon as possible. Email email@example.com to book your pitch or find out more about our wildlife.

Finding time in your busy schedule to head to Brook Meadow lake can do a world of good. Not just the physical body of water but also the fresh air and sunshine have underlying health benefits that could be missing from your healthy lifestyle. Fresh air is full of negative ions that help the body absorb oxygen, combat free radicals, and improve alertness. A simple regular dosage of sunshine provides vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium – essential for young children. When you’re feeling groggy and restless put down your laptop, round up the children and book a family getaway at Brook Meadow.
The large fishing lake is ideal to teach your children a lifelong skill or simply watch the comings and goings of the abundance of natural wildlife. Invaluable experience for children can be had at Brook Meadow that cannot be taught in the classroom, watch them flourish with creativity as simple sticks turn into magic wands.
