Wonderful site with views across the valley. The staff were very friendly, organised and helpful, when booking and when they showed us to our pitch. The toilets and showers were very clean at all times and the staff checked them constantly. The ground was a bit soft at this time of year. Surrounding the campsite are wonderful walks and cycles, as well as lovely pubs, including The High Corner Inn, The Alice Lisle and, of course the Red Shoot. We had a meal there which was fine, but nothing special. That night, there was a party in the pub which went on until 1. 30am! We were not told about the when we booked the meal at the pub. Also during our stay there was a running festival taking place, which although very interesting to watch at the start and finish, we also had the cars parked in the field in front of the caravans and motorhomes for two days. The tannoy started at 7. 30a. M. On the Sunday and army cadets directed the cars from 7. 00a. M. We hadn't been told about this when we booked either.

None of this spoilt our stay too much. We would definitely stay again, but would check about any events happening at the campsite and the pub.

Wonderful location, clean and tidy. Small playground on site and a shop selling all the provisions you may need. There was a party in the pub which went on late one night which kept me awake with pounding music, but this is the first time we've experienced this, so its an exception rather than the rule. Slightly boggy on site can be tough to get traction to put the caravan on blocks. Huge toilet block, clean and warm, always a shower free to use. Lovely site and we will be back.

Absolutely loved this site. Great facilities: beautifully kept grounds and camping pitches, electric hook up available, dogs and awnings allowed, well stocked convenience store, pub just outside of site, fab little playground with a sand pit, great wooden climbing frames and a separate tree swing round the corner, outside the pub. Toilets and showers were kept spotless and really thoroughly cleaned. Staff were friendly and helpful. There was a lovely space for kids to play ball games in the middle of our field. Felt completely safe letting our five yr old son roam around with the other kids on the site. Really handy that they also stock gas tanks as we forgot to pack ours! And all with the added charm of the new forest with its horses roaming wild on the local roads. We stayed at the site for 3 nights on route to Somerset. Quite quiet and low key so would really recommend for short stays.

Ideal location right in the New Forest, even the road to approach this campsite has spectacular views either side. Well regulated for the benefit of everyone staying on the site. The amenities, which can be a problem, were perfectly adequate with nothing unpleasant to be found at the time. This is quite a busy campsite, but the setting is second to none.

A very good family campsite which, when we stayed at peak season time, had a healthy mix of tents, caravans and motorhomes.

We particularly like the informal free open spaces.

A good children's playground but tucked away from the camping areas so not noisy for the camping areas. Not too commercial, felt like camping as it used to be. There are pitch allocations but how you park on the pitch is not too regimented. We wanted a campsite where we could book a space next to our sons tent and this was not an issue, some sites have a segmentation between tents and motorhomes.

All the facilities are really good; a well equipped shop with fresh bread to really very good and clean washrooms and laundry. Well managed and a fantastic location. Will go again.

Just come back from a 5 night stay in this fabulous campsite. It's in the heart of the New Forest, with its lovely walks and of course Ponies and Donkeys walking around like they own the place. We managed to get a spot at short notice due to bad weather at our original destination, so we were in a paddock separated from the main campsite by a hedge and gate, which was quite nice as we had a lot of room. We had two medium tents, but they only charged us per person so that was great.

It's a lovely spot near to the local town, Ringwood, about 15-20 mins away, and near to lots of activities such as the wakeboarding park and horse-riding. It has a pub on site which serves some excellent real ales some of which are brewed on the premises. The food wasn't very exciting - pizzas and burgers, so we didn't eat there, but it was a cosy place to spend the evening playing cards. They do have live music on, but unfortunately due to a power cut they couldn't the night we were there.

I'm not obsessed with the toilets and showers like, it seems, most reviewers, but they were fine, only a small queue once, showers were hot and not just a dribble.

The shop was really good, most things a camper would need, and reasonable amount of food and drink. Fresh croissants and pain au chocolat baked fresh each morning were as good as you'd get in France. If I had one criticism it closed a bit early, 7pm I think, so if you were in the middle of cooking and realised you were missing something, your nearest option is an hour there and back.

A few noisy people, but wardens on site quietened them down. The play area looked great if a bit small - it's on the campsite: if my kids were younger and interested in it, I'd have let them go and play there unattended from 5y. O. , but then I give my kids much more free rein than many.

We stayed here at a busy time of year so it was a bit busier than we usually like but that was no fault of the site.

Nice, clean and tidy site in a lovely are. Would definitely go back but would love to try it at a quieter time of the year. Nice and relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff even when they were busy.

Just returned from a 3 night stay as a family of 5 at the Red Shoot camp site and had a fantastic time on a fantastic site. In my opinion, there were no negatives. The positives were the toilet/shower block, the improved shop, the friendliness of staff, the superb location and the double-hot female owner

The camp site itself is in a nice location.


Plenty of hot water for washing pots.

Fresh baked bread

Staff very helpful

Level ground

lovely walks in the forst

Ideal place for bird watching


Groups of people together don't consider other campers through noise

Just over 2. 5 miles to get to main road then 3miles to ringwood nearest town.

Could do with toilet blocks for tents that are furthest away

No bins close by everything is by the enterance.

Using showers spray came into the drying area

Park is out of site from main tenting area so you have to go with the children

Have to use their ice blocks 25p a time to freeze

Our family visited by this site for a weekend (us and 8, 6 & 2). It is in the New Forest, which was one of our requirements, and is family orientated. It is a very clean and flat site and is mostly tents with a few campervans and the odd caravan (probably as there are no hard standings). NO STATICS.


. Is in the New Forest

. Has a spotless washblock with modern facilities.

. Flat pitches and welcoming staff.

. Croissants, pain au chocolat and rolls offered at shop (pre order the night before) -didn't try them.

. Cattle grid at entrance so no ponies walking around.


. When washing hands (in wash basins) water is scalding hot water.

. Pot wash - scalding hot water, no plugs in sinks. 2 drainers above the sinks for 5 sinks.

. Playground is at the entrance and behind (from the pitches) the washblock. Could not let the children go there alone. Could not see from any pitches or the Washing up area. The floor is sandy - so sand in shoes.

. Showers have a dressing area with small pegs (hold one towel or underwear). This dressing area still gets sprayed - floor is wet. Showers are sandy on the floor (could have something to do with the playground).

. Lots of groups on site such as 2 families together. Put me off going as there was no chatting or friendliness from people to us.

. Expensive at 38 per night for a weekend for a family of 4 (had 1 under the age =free)


. Modern washblock about 8 showers, 10 toilets, 7 wash basins, 2 hand dryers and 1 or 2 20p hairdryers (son said same in men's as ladies).

. Potwash 2 sinks undercover -5 sinks total with 2 high up drainers. No plugs.

. Laundry - didn't use

. Family bathroom didn't use

. Electric hook up didn't use

. Playground - sandy for 5s and up. Bad location for it.

. Shop - didn't use

. Entertainment - none

. Pub -it is situated behind the pub and car park of the same name. Didn't use.

Went crabbing at Muddeford. You can buy all the kit at the shop but we took our own. Bought a bag of bait 1 for a bag. Has toilets cafe and pay for parking. It is at Muddeford quay. Grassy area, good play park and picnic tables. Can walk -about 2 mins to the beach. Think it is called Avon beach. Did some kit flying up a hill with some walking too. Went to visit Boulder wood car park (all seem to be named in the forest). Has deer, picnic grassy area, walks, branches to make dens, ice cream van, horrible toilets and when walking around I believe this is an arboretum with lots of special trees.

Check in 2pm, check out 1pm (which is great for weekends away and for us). You may arrive from 9am but they cannot guarantee your pitch is vacant and there is nowhere to wait (except for the pub car park same
name) in front of the campsite). I believe the lady quoted me 5 to stay longer on the pitch. Have ice block freezing service which we did not use.

All in all a lovely site which is mostly tents on level ground and is great for small groups. The play area I would say (IMHO) is not child friendly and unsuitable for under 10,s (see above).
