Swallow Beck Caravan Site

Would you consider giving us a small donation?

Lanburn Connemaras Est. 1971  @ Swallow Beck

The Stud was established by Pam's parents, Bob and Margaret Blackburn, in 1971 when they bought their foundation mare and first Connemara pony from Ireland.  On inheriting the Stud when Bob died suddenly in 2014, the usual workings of the Stud were totally thrown into disarray.  For five years, Pam & Paul battled with the Local Planning Authority in order to get Planning consent to save the stud.  Finally, in 2019, five years later, they were successful.

'Catch 22'

Due to the costs involved, there was no money left to set the site up.  Therefore we are having to start very small, with few facilities and work our way up towards our 'Vision'. We hope people will understand and bear with us.  We must open in order to bring in money for the Stud to survive.

We have already spent £1600 on new fencing and a new entrance.  So any donation will help us enormously.

Working Towards Our Vision

We would eventually like to be a Luxury Site.  We have been ear-marked as a 'Flagship Site' by the CAMC and this is what we will be working towards.

To Come - 
Water connection on each pitch
Hedging for privacy, probably of Rosemary and Lavendar.

Shop with locally produced meats from Goodwood, local wine from Tindale Vineyard
Local discounts to tourist attractions.

So, we will be starting 'Small and Basic', but we have a Vision.

Any small donation will help, every little counts and will help.  Thank you.
