    The Heartbeat of Campbell Valley

    Campbell Valley lies between Brookswood and the USA border and is mostly known for the beautiful, Campbell Valley Park.

    There are rolling green fields, forests and trails, horse stables, and vineyards. South Langley is perfect for those who want the peace and privacy of country life, without having to move to the Interior of B.C. to find it.

    Campbell Valley At A Glance

    Big, Spacious, Open, and Private – Country Living At Its Langley Best

    Campbell Valley is country, rural lifestyle at its best!

    With mostly farms and acreages, it’s easy to fall in love with this area on a long, summertime, country drive. 

    Most of the acreages are on wells and septic systems, but some of the new construction in Fernridge and High Point are now serviced with city water/sewer and have been split into 10,000 sq. ft. lots.

    There is not much for restaurants and entertainment in South Langley, but it does have the highest concentration of wineries in BC – outside of the Okanagan!

    Imagining Your Life In Campbell Valley

    How you’ll spend your weekends…
    You’ll spend your weekends in the yard doing yard work on your large property – or you can hire a gardener and spend your weekends riding horses and visiting nearby wineries!

    Your entertainment & restaurant situation…
    Your entertainment and restaurant situation is limited out this far, but the Bacchus Bistro (at Chaberton Estate Winery) has an amazing chef. Make sure to book a reservation.

    You can also head towards Brookswood to The Artful Dodger Pub! Feel free to ride your horse there.

    What you’ll do after work…
    More landscaping! Exciting right?

    Or turn off the ride-on lawnmower and invite some friends out for a BBQ on your large lot.

    Hobbies you can pick up…
    Every winery in the area has a “Wine Club” so I would start there and then sign up for horse riding lessons.

    In hindsight, maybe get the horse riding lessons before the Wine Club.

    What You Might Not Like

    Properties in this area are mostly large acreages and farm land, which means that there aren’t really many shops and restaurants close. If you need a few necessities, you’ll be looking at a 15+ minute drive.

    If you’re an investor, know that you’ll struggle with the zoning as South Langley is part of the Agricultural Land Reserve.
