My wife had asked for a pitch with internet access, it turned out the internet access was very limited and the few pitches that could receive it were taken.

We were shown to a hard standing pitch with a hedge behind it, we didn't realise till later that this hid the toilet block and children's play area for the camping field, this was incredibly noisy as was the entire camping field which was just behind us, some of the people with annual pitches said that it had been like that all summer.

The toilet block was basic and appeared to be hosed down every day rather than cleaned, this left it incredibly wet for the rest of the day.

We found the warden unhelpful and thought the site expensive for what it was.

This site is in an excellent location but I would not recommend this site for couples hoping to enjoy some peace and quiet. However if you have a noisy family you will love it.

We visited Hill Cottage Farm for a weekend visit and had chosen carefully as we had a family in our party who had never camped before and we wanted them to have the best possible experience. We needn't have worried, Hill Cottage Farm is a lovely campsite where the owners seem to go that extra mile to make the stay comfortable.

We stayed in the camping field which has the most beautiful situation with plenty of space and EHUs. There are toilets here which are very clean. The main block by the reception houses the showers which were also clean with lots of hot water. Each basin in this area has a fresh cloth left by it so that you can wipe it out after use so that it's clean for the next user. There are a whole row of hairdryers and everything is free. The laundry room also has a whole row of washers and driers, plus sinks and an ironing board. Infact the whole site was immaculate and just had a lovely feel to it.

The washing up station in the camping field was the only area I would criticise as there was only tiny basins with push button taps. We found it easier to wash up 'in camp' by boiling a kettle.

We stayed with two other families and it wasn't a problem for us to pitch in a circle, 'cowboy style!' The children took their bikes which they had to keep to the camping field only but this wasn't a problem and they also made full use of the playground.

Fordingbridge is a lovely little town on the edge of the New Forest and you are only 30 mins from Bournemouth (we went to Hengistbury Head and walked to Mudeford Sandbank which has a lovely sandy beach backed by gorgeous beach huts - very pretty). All in all a lovely area.

Spent two weeks at this site,lovely warm welcome on arrival from the warden. Shown to our pitch which was a lovely fully serviced pitch which was excellent for a two week holiday. Our pitch had a slope to it which took a little bit of work to level and get the awning to fit.

Reception had a small selection of daily basics available, but also on request papers could be ordered along with bread, baguettes and croissants.

There's a Spa in Aldershot which has everything you require, we did attempt to walk the road way which was a bit dangerous, there is a lovely wooded walk which is safer but hard work on a night.

Fordingbridge has a lovely selection of shops, tea rooms and pubs. There is also a lovely park with a paddling pool for the little ones.

We stayed at this site for just 2 nights, we were shown around the campsite by friendly warden, and then taken to tent field, we had booked an electric hook up and was given the choice of a few pitches, the field was very flat, clean and very tidy, the toilet block on the tent field was very clean and tidy, our children made good use of the children's play area.
The dog walking area was clean and no mess, the lakes were small but pleasant to walk around, the site is very well situated and within easy access to the forest and just a short drive to salisbury. Fordingbridge is a lovely little town, offering good shops and pubs.
We had a fantastic time staying here and would definitely stay again, our only criticism if any would be the pitches are a little too close together, barely enough room to park a car in between tents, but then it was in august!

My daughters and I stayed at Hill Cottage Farm for 3 days in August. The site is in a lovely area within easy reach of the new Forest, and the pretty town of Fordingbridge.
The toilet block in the Caravan area was excellent a nice alternative to the rather basic toilet facilities in the camping field. It is a very child friendly site and my daughters had a lovely time playing with all the children.
The site details said there was a games room but we couldn't find it! perhaps if it exists it needs more advertising. We found the site was quiet after about 10.30-11pm. We really enjoyed our stay but felt it would have been even better if the tent pitches had not been so close together.
It would have been wonderful if tents were only able to pitch around the edge of the field not all over it. I would recommend the site to other families.

Just had two weeks at this lovely campsite everywhere was spotless we were on a fully service pitch which was divided by a hedge and give you that little bit of privacy,with plenty of room.
Our daughter was camping in the rally field she had plenty of room too and lots of space for the children to play there is few swings that the kids enjoyed, there was recycling bins for everything,and a small dog walk.
The only down side was we were out till 20.50 one night and couldn't get the car back next to the caravan as there a height restriction bar and having a roof box on the car we couldn't get under but on the bright side no one could do away with the caravan.
Overall a excellent site would love to return.
