The Alpaca Cabin

The Cabin was our family home for almost five years. A space that has been a sanctuary for our family and friends. We are now so proud to be able to open it out to guests to enjoy a holiday with us on the farm.

Our homely log cabin retreat is nestled on the edge of the picturesque South Downs National Park, in the charming village of Westbourne. Located a five minute walk from the village, you also have great links to the city of Chichester and Portsmouth, both a 20 -minute drive from the farm.

As you step into our rustic yet refined haven, you’ll instantly be embraced by the beauty of the surrounding twenty-four acre property. Our cabin reflects our British and Nigerian heritage where home is more than a building but how it makes you feel. This is our version of a UK safari lodge with alpacas on your doorstep. We hope your stay will be truly unique.

  • Private Garden, Decking, BBQ & Fire Pit
  • Alpacas roaming in front of the cabin garden

Whether you’re seeking a romantic getaway, a family adventure, or a reunion with friends, our cabin offers the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure. Picture evenings spent gathered around the crackling log burner as you unwind from your day’s adventures.

Our self-catered kitchen awaits your culinary creations and is fully equipped. Whip up delicious meals using locally sourced ingredients or simply enjoy a leisurely breakfast while soaking in the stunning views of the farm.

Location & Other Accommodation on site

What truly sets us apart is our unique location on a captivating sustainability focused twenty four acre farm, where you’ll have the opportunity to connect with nature in a truly unforgettable way. There is an abundance of experiences awaiting you during your stay at Our Back Garden, whether you’re here for a brief moment or an extended retreat. Just 8 miles from Goodwood race course and some beautiful vineyards,  beaches line our section of the south coast with plenty of seaside towns to complement your adventures.

The cabin is located on the end of our run of farm buildings, next to our other on-site accommodation, our “shepherds hut”. We ask that guest are respectful with noise levels between the hours 10pm-8am. We as a family live on site and will be available to assist with any issues during your stay. We have considered privacy of all our accommodation sites and have created private gardens for each.

Parties & Large bookings

If you wish to also book the hut which will accommodate further two guests, please enquire before booking so that we can make sure this is available for you. PLEASE NOTE ! if you are a Hen / Stag / party booking you will need to enquire before booking as you will need to pay to hire our hut alongside the cabin.

A great visit for a meet and greet session at Our Back Garden today. My granddaughter absolutely loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful, making it such a pleasurable visit. We definitely intend to return for alpaca walking later in the year

Had an amazing visit today, meeting and feeding the alpacas. The hosts were really friendly and informative and obviously really care about their animals and their business. The alpacas were lovely, the hot drinks great and the produce made from the alpaca wool was wonderful; I look forward to wearing my hat and socks and I'm sure our grandson will love his cuddly alpaca. Would definitely recommend a visit and would love to come back.

We had a fantastic couple of hours with the alpacas today. Such a great place, with a lovely family feel. Laura was brilliant and taught us everything we needed to know. I’m in love with Flora and wanted to take her home. Thank you so much.
