Pennings Farm is a peaceful, rural hideaway site with wonderful views, on the Wiltshire/Hampshire border within a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
Excellent for walking and cycling with many footpaths from the site, and close to Coombe Bissett nature reserve.
The site opens at 2pm on Friday, and the stewards for this meet can be contacted by the Wessex mobile phone on 07939 592 200.
Our usual ceilidh will be held on Saturday evening in Coombe Bissett and Homington Village Hall, which is about 1½ miles from the site.
It starts at 7.30pm, and is an informal folk dance evening, interspersed with song, poetry or music. You can bring your own refreshments, although tea and coffee is provided in the interval.
