So ... we stayed in Poppy and we’ve had an amazing weekend, if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle this has got to be one of the best retreats in the country ..... you feel like there’s nobody for miles around and Tina is absolutely lovely and always at hand to assist ..... will definitely be revisiting !!! Thanks for an incredible weekend : The Compton’s
Came and stayed with my cousin and his family. Facilities were good and everything was in very good condition. Nice to have wood provided for evening fires too. Local pub did gebuinely good south American food (Old Vineyard) which was a pleasant surprise. Stay at Bluecaps was good value too compared to other options a short drive from London. We'll be back.
We stayed over a weekend, so quite and stress free, bed so comfy and shower was amazing,a wonderful weekend, tina the owner was pleasant and accommodating
We have just had an amazing stay at Bluecaps Farm and we will definitely be returning!
We stayed in the Bell Tent with our two children who are 8 and 3 and we all loved our stay! The tent is a great size and beautifully done inside. It is very clean and has all you could need for your stay.
The surrounding area is also lovely. The animals are all friendly and the children really enjoyed interacting with them.
The shower/toilet facilities and very clean and close by.
We will be returning for another fun family break!
A big thank you to Tina who is very welcoming and helpful.
We spent a fabulous bank holiday weekend at Bluecaps and will definitely be back! The shepherd’s huts are adorable and extremely well kitted out. We stayed in the lovely Forget-me-not and there was plenty of room for a family with two teens, they were grateful for the power supply and my husband and I appreciated the welcoming bottle of wine! There is everything you could conceivably need including powered coolbox and a little wood burning stove. The communal showers/toilets are also clean and well maintained. The field is quiet and secluded and our llama neighbours were a delight. We were so excited to meet crias (babies) Iris & Ivan when we arrived and totally blown away when two more (Idris & Isaac) were born during our stay. We hope that Lavender is now delivered safely of her cria too. We lit a campfire and bbq’d over it on the first night and had a delicious meal at a nearby pub, The Vineyard, on the second. We also hired bikes and cycled around nearby Bewl Water - all 13 miles of it! - stopping at another excellent pub (The Bull) for lunch. The highlight of our stay was the llama walk around the delightful lanes with Tina our friendly and knowledgeable host. Visit Bluecaps - you won’t be disappointed!
I think I could get used to glamping! The Sunflower hut had everything we needed and it was so cosy with the wood burning stove. It really was like staying in a miniature cottage. Thanks Tina!
We spent two nights in Poppy shepherd’s hut last week and very much enjoyed our stay. The weather was sunny but freezing cold, so the wood-burner was essential and definitely kept us warm and cozy all evening and throughout the night. The bed was comfy and the duvet lovely and warm. We cooked in the hut both evenings and had all the cooking equipment we needed. The slow-cooker was especially useful.
The plug-in freezer box was adequate but a small fridge would probably be better, especially in the summer. The bathroom was adequate, although very cold, but fine once you were under the hot shower. All facilities were spotlessly clean.
It was lovely to wake up to the sound of a woodpecker in the woods and to see the stars at night with no light pollution. A truly peaceful place to stay.
We had lunch at The Vineyard, Lamberhurst, which was lovely. We visited Scotney Castle, Bodiam Castle, Bewl reservoir and even got to Hastings to see the new pier - all within a reasonable driving distance.
Such a beautiful area full of pretty villages and hidden gems, and Blue Caps is in a great location from which to explore.
