On arrival we noticed the neat and tidiness of the site along with a nice welcome.

Good points - location of site is good for local village, nice walk to pub (longer than the 5 mins advertised), lovely views and quietness. Good information room for the local area inc discount vouchers etc for local attractions.

The not so good points - in the camping field, units are expected to be very squashed together (we were between a winnebago and a tent and then was expected to also fit our family in a tent between them) when the winnebago left, another caravan was positioned even closer, despite there being lots of room all round the site! We did mention this and the new caravan was moved about one metre over. Also, the toilets were not as clean as the ones in the caravan area, even though they were supposed to be cleaned daily - but still usable. Perhaps, the owners could take this into consideration.


Overall, the site was fantastic, family friendly, dog friendly, clean, great facilities and nice fellow campers. Also another fantastic thing was the showers which we hardly ever had to wait for (despite being Jubilee Weekend) and were always hot.

Thanks for a lovely stay, we would definitely return.

After reading excellent reviews of this site we decided to book a week here. Like other reviews this site was excellent for our dog! loved the dog walk and forest walk. Site itself was good and facilities clean etc, we had a fully serviced pitch; Downside though we were put on pitch number 12, which must be the worst, smallest and most water logged pitch of all! no adequate parking for our car, this made us feel hemmed in as other cars parked in front of there pitches were surrounding us as there was not enough room! just too cramped; The other pitches either side of us were spacious. Over all it is a good site, but felt unlucky where we ended up. Would visit again but would refuse pitch 12.

We stayed here over the Easter holiday weekend and only got a space via a cancellation at the last minute. We were pitched in the field, it was flat and water, bins and toilets were close by. The main site was full and also the rally field. It did not feel over crowded and the site was clean and tidy. We did not use the showers but they looked good.

The site is ideal for walking and cycling. The countryside is outstanding and quite flat. Riverside walks, open fields and woodland. Fordingbrige is close by but not much there. A Tesco and co op for supplies which is handy. We had a lovely time and shall go back again.

What a surprise on arrival to this wonderful Campsite. We booked in and and were shown the way to our pitch and assisted with parking. If you need help the warden will park your van for you.

The pitches (Hard standing) fully serviced water and waste. Toilets and showers are immaculate, a short distance for chemical waste disposal. The privacy hedges are not quite as you would imagine but when they are in full leaf etc it will be fine but pitch privacy was not an issue.

The site is very quiet despite a Rally in the next field.

Woken a couple of mornings at Pheasant o'clock while doing his rounds but no problem.

Short drive into the New Forest where its beautiful to say the least and of course not many minutes from anywhere Ringwood. Fordingbridge. Christchurch Salisbury.

All in all a wonderful week in a wonderful site.

Having stayed in very many camp sites throughout the UK, this is by far and away the greatest site we have stayed on.

The wardens are extremely helpful and personable, and the site itself is a little paradise; nothing but the sound of birdsong and the surrounding countryside is beautiful.

Each hard standing site is surrounded by privacy hedges and you are really not aware that anyone else is camped nearby! There is also a large field for rallies available.

The shower/toilet block is spotlessly clean, and there is a spacious laundry room with several washing machines and dryers, with facilities for ironing.

There is a small shop on site for necessities, newspapers, etc. And a Co-op in the nearby village. The site is nicely situated for easy access to nearby Fordingbridge (very picturesque) and for visiting larger towns such as Bournemouth/Salisbury.

We will certainly be returning to this site. 5-star rating!

Took advantage of the very unusual fine weather to do a weekend camping trip at Hill Cottage. A lovely little campsite - being so late in the season there were only 3 tents, 3 motorhomes and a caravan in the whole field (which had 50 pitches) so it was very peaceful.

Lots of electric hook ups. Made the mistake of pitching near the hedge instead of near the path - despite daytime temps of 29 degrees the grass was always wet, particularly so first thing in the morning, but I chose my own pitch so it was my fault if I had wet feet.

The shower block was very clean, as were the toilets and dishwashing area in the trailer on the camping field, but I think it would have been a bit cramped if the field had been full.

No shop on site, but reception sells milk, newspapers, sweets and ice cream and the warden was really friendly and helpful.

The dog loved it, plenty of good walks nearby. The forest path to the village wasn't particularly well marked and we got off track a few times, but it was walkable by the road as well, which you would need to do after dark. Co-op and nice pub in the village.
