Reviewer: CERichardson 2 reviews from this member

There is no denying that this is a large and beautiful site with lots of wildlife roaming around which is lovely to see. A choice of pitches whether you wish to be nestled in the trees and bushes or on the headland.

The reason for three stars is that this was a very expensive site to pitch at and by far the most expensive we have ever stayed at. I would not mind this if the facilities were up to scratch but they simply weren't. Three portable cabin style blocks for the site which are cramped and dirty. Entrance to them is a mud bath and wellies are a must. I appreciate we went during wet weather and that mud will occur but the ground approaching the blocks could not cope for this weather and had not been maintained suitably. Considering the price people are paying could they not at least lay some wood chippings or gravel to help the ground cope with wet weather/volume of visitors?? Better still, upgrade the cabins to a brick built structure. Wooden steps up to the cabin were also an accident waiting to happen.

Another niggle was the sheer amount of traffic driving around the site at all hours, mainly to stop at the toilet/shower cabins. People were actually driving from their tents to the blocks (even when the weather was dry!). This just made the roads a constant stream of traffic (which started as early as 6am) and a cause of constant concern with our young son.

Overall a nice site but would probably not return for current price until above issues have been addressed because it was not worth the price in our opinion.

So, maybe I'm a bit biased, as this site is only a few miles from home. But it makes a great get away, whether its for one night or several.

Loos, showers, dog wash. Pitch up where you like, on the heath, in dappled wooded glades, around the pond, or even the 'roundhill'!

Standard camping in the forest fare, but always a delight.

This site felt like our family was going on a real adventure! We camped near trees where the children could be dens and enjoyed watching the animals roam wild across the site.

Plenty of choice of places to pitch and good facilities in the blocks. A convenient location for exploring the whole of the national forest, by car or by bike.

The welcome was friendly too.

What a lovely campsite! Based in the forest the site is huge and you get to pick your own spot. Even in the middle of the summer holidays there was a huge amount of space and each unit could spread out. There are three toilet shower units and I never had to wait for a toilet or shower. They were kept clean but could do with a bit of updating. All the sinks were adult height and it would have been good to have some child friendly ones. I was impressed that there was even a dog cleaning room!

Wild horses, ponys, donkeys and cows roam the site and were even seen taking food out of tents. They are very friendly and my neice was so excited being able to stroke them.

The site had a wild feel to it with kids climbing trees and hiding in the undergrowth. It was a great place for children to play and explore!

Great site plenty for the children riding their bikes meeting new friends staff are friendly.

Toilet/shower block clean washing up facilities are great well worth the money two weeks next year

Brockenhurst is a few miles down the road with shops and camping supplies

Just returned from Roundhill and me and the kids had a great weekend there.

Contrary to other reviews I read I found the staff very helpful and on-hand for guidance or just a friendly chat.

The site is large and rural, leaving you to decide where to pitch. There is certainly now crowding of pitches as there is so much space and the nearest tent to us was a good 30 or 40 metres away.

The site is typically New Forest with areas of grass, ferns bushes and trees to make the perfect backdrop.

Site facilities are good, but not excellent. 3 x toilet/shower blocks service the site. They are cleaned daily, but can be too busy at times for showering or using the washing up facilities. I think at peak times there just isn't enough showers for the amount of people and depending on what time you use them they can show signs of needing a clean up. On the Sunday morning I joined a queue of about 8 people in front of me for a shower, gave up and decided to do the washing up instead and joined a queue of people waiting to do that.

The location of the site is perfect for walking or cycling out from the site to the surrounding forest and maps are available from site reception.

Visited Brockenhurst which took approx. 30 minutes on a cycle track mostly route although it's quicker by road only. Nice village with some shops, pubs, restaurants and takeaways. We drank and ate in the Forresters pub and the food was very good and they serve real ale too.

My kids loved this site and the weekend we had together and we'll definitely return.

Lovely stay for a short weekend in June. Weather had not been pleasant before coming down but although there was some puddling (lots and lots of very heavy rain had been falling in the week leading up to our arrival) there were still plenty of places of pitch. This is a great site to go as a small group because it is a case of turn up and choose your pitch, meaning we could find somewhere where we could group together away from others.

Toilet and shower block were in excellent condition with plenty of hot water at all times. Washing up facilities also good and everything was clean.

We went at a in between time of year so not in school holidays but it was still quite busy, however the site is big enough for lots of people so we didn't book. There are ponies and cows wondering the site which is lovely to see and the site itself is great for being in the countryside and if you had kids lots of space to play and cycle around on safe tracks.

Down side if I had to find one is the simple fact that there is so much space that it does encourage groups which can be frustrating if they are noisy but that's nothing against the campsite more the individuals themselves. However if you find a far out location and check who is around you should be ok. We thought we had achieved this and had nice quiet evenings but then discovered the Dutch people next to us for some reason choose to get up at 4:45 am instead and shout about fried eggs. There was me thinking it would be birds that would wake me up!

However as I say that's searching for a downside and don't let it out you off. This is about the fourth time I have been to this site and will be returning again, it's ideally situated for the 'real' new forest and easy to get about, they also hire out ice block or you can buy bottles of frozen water which worked well for us.

Great stay thank you!

We stayed here as an all male group and didnít have any problems booking / checking in.

The site is large and spacious and has a nice airy feel to it, it's also fairly flat.

There were facilities blocks scattered around, the slight downside was only the main central block was open when we stayed. This was kept reasonable clean.

An ok site, that will probably see me return with the other half.

Just come back from a very relaxed 4 night stay at Roundhill. After we returned as a group from the Isle of Wight due to unseasonal bad weather, Roundhill accommodated our party of 6 adults, 7 children and two dogs. We all had a great time exploring the paths and walks around the campsite. We had a very pleasant walk from the campsite into Brockenhurst. The wardens of Roundhill were friendly, and I loved the pitch where if you like at this campsite. The toilets and showers were clean with hot water at all times. The campsite on the Friday night was full and had more of a festival feel about it. Where we were pitched the children still had space to play cricket and play games in front of the tent. Probably best to stay midweek and would return but only for a midweek visit. We had no problems with aggressive ponies whilst staying at Roundhill. The campsite despite being big didn't feel like anyone was on top of you and was quiet at night, even on the Friday night where we were staying in the campsite was all quiet by 11ish.

Stayed here for a long weekend and had a lovely time. There is so much space here that you wouldn't believe that it was busy. Yes there are ponies and cattle roaming free but if you are sensible and don't leave food and rubbish lying around they tend to leave you alone and are easy to move on if need be. There is plenty of room for kids to ride bikes and you can ride off road routes direct from the campsite and in fact it looks like you can ride off road most of the way to Brockenhurst. You can hire bikes in Brockenhurst too. I can also definitely recommend the family canoeing run by New Forest Activities down the road.

Brockenhurst itself has a fantastic bakers, butchers and greengrocers - quite why they need 2 supermarkets as well (they have Tesco's Express and are soon building a Sainsbury's) I don't know. The curry house is pretty good too! (NB it's not the same one that will deliver to the campsite so can't comment on that as we didn't try it). There are also a couple of shops that stock things like camping gas if you need it.

The major disappointment with this site and the reason for the low score is that the facilities were in very poor condition with many of the loo and shower cubicle doors not shutting properly and the showers cubicles look to have been put together by Messers Bodgit and Fixit whilst the cleaning seemed to ignore the build up of mildew in the shower corners (if I can scrape it off easily with my fingernail it won't take much elbow grease to get it properly clean). The ladies did have a goodly amount of hot water but the men's I'm told were intermittent and seemed to be affected by water pressure. Hopefully this is a temporary blip as I am told the facilities are removed and rebuilt every year and one regular told me that they are usually much better. Either way you pay through the nose at C&C Club 5 star rates for 2 star quality. Very disappointing.
