About the Farm

'Beechcroft' is the name of the farm on which The Old Dairy is situated and has been in the family for over three generations. We traditionally farm lamb and beef at Beechcroft (http://www.beechcroftdirect.co.uk/). It is placed in a stunning location with beautiful views from the Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight and westward to the New Forest.

On this working farm in spring you might see lambs born, cows calving or walk through the beautiful bluebells of Crabwood a mere 5 minutes away. During the summer, swallows hatch in the farm buildings whilst the buzzards often wheel overhead. As summer turns to autumn the local woods surrounding the farm turn their leaves the most wonderful shades of red and gold. In its turn, winter has its own treasures, warming walks through the woods and along the Clarendon Way returning to the welcoming warmth of The Old Dairy.
