Rural Family Business Crowned National Award Winners

Brook Meadow, a 20 acre caravan and campsite on a family farm in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside, has had some amazing news as this week.

Following a record number of entrants and a competitive shortlist process, Brook Meadow was announced as a winner of the “Triumph Over Adversity” award.

Rural businesses from across Britain have been celebrating following the Rural Business Awards 2020/21 National Final, held online for the first time due to lockdown. Jules Hudson, the BBC Country File presenter, delighted the finalists as host for the ceremony on Thursday 25th February.

Claire Hart, one of the owners of Brook Meadow, said: “I am truly thrilled, as are my dear parents Jasper and Mary, to receive the Triumph Over Adversity Award alongside the other worthy winners with their incredibly inspiring stories this unique category has shone a light on. The current situation is very difficult, so to receive a Rural Business Award means the absolute world to my family and our team, who I thank wholeheartedly for their support.

“Our drive has been to look after our family and our heritage, my brother’s legacy and my son’s future. Gaining national recognition for all we have overcome and achieved together is very special. I would love the success of Brook Meadow’s story to be a glimmer of hope for anyone who is struggling – believe in yourself, better days are on the horizon. Thank you, Rural Business Awards and Amazon.”

Market Harborough-based campsite, Brook Meadow is a family-run business in the tranquil Northamptonshire countryside and situated on a working farm, the site is surrounded by 400 acres of peaceful pasture and arable land, with 20 acres designated for holidaying and a breath-taking five-acre lake.
