Spent a week here at the end of May with our neighbours and a total of 5 kids.

The check in was quick and efficient, and we were given free choice on where to pitch up, with no restrictions on gazebos and pup-tents for the kids. We had our own fire pit so took advantage of their ample supply of logs. The kids made full use of the 240v sockets in the club house to charge their games and phones, and the site itself was well kept and tidy.

Shower and toilets were clean and never seemed busy, even though there were a dozen or so families on site most of the week. I can imagine these would get busy at peak times though. We also had to walk across the muddy vehicle tracks to get from the tents to the showers, but this wouldn't be as much as a problem in dryer weeks - we had some overnight rain, but nothing too torrential, and the rest of the ground cleared/drained quickly.

Loads of facilities and activities for kids, and at reasonable prices. And the shops are a 2-3 minute drive away, or a 10 minute walk.

It's a lovely site if you do not need an EHU, and well located for the south coast and New Forest, without the premium price, with the added bonus of permitting campfires - as long as they are off the ground.

We spent the half term week here with another family 4 adults and five kids between us. The site is beautiful large and flat and surrounded by woods.

Between us we had four tents and a gazebo, so we needed quiet a large plot and had no trouble finding space, the site had several other families dotted around the field, but we didn't feel squashed at all.

Our children did approximately two activities per day and they loved it, they all really loved their time there and they were kept busy most of the time and when they weren't doing anything they disappeared off in the woods or tree climbing

The weather was a little hit and miss but didn't stop any of the fun and the club house was great for a warm up if things got a bit cold.

They have a large block of modern showers and wc's they were always available but the floors do get a but muddy and needs to be hosed down a bit more regularly, but this really is a minor gripe. If id been and had a look around before booking I couldn't have picked a better site than here.

The staff also are great, the instructors are really good and very patient even with giddy children and the site staff are helpful and friendly.

We will definitely be back, this is one to book if you have children who like to be busy and doing things!

Five stars *****

We visited Fairthorne Manor for their Birthday weekend of the 2nd to 5th May 2014. We had the option of using one of their tents, already put up, so opted for this and left ours at home. The ground was plush and soft if a bit undulating but the tent was good and level. Checking in was awesomely easy, a deposit of 5 for a swipe card to open the gate when shut was very worthwhile too. The facilities were well presented and very clean too, the clubhouse, friendly and accommodating. The list of activities was also very good for the near teenage daughter. All of the staff were helpful, cheerful, and courteous. There is enough to roam around and explore, or take advantage of the range of events set up. The clubhouse even has an array of games the tenants can borrow. Well cooked food was available in the clubhouse, and alcohol and soft drinks and snacks.

We have already booked for the big family get together in August and looking at holding an MCC event in July. Overall we were very impressed

This site is set in beautiful grounds with good, clean facilities. Staff are very helpful and friendly. You can hire a BBQ or Firepit which will be delivered to your pitch. You can even join in a sing song and roast marshmallows round the campfire on Saturday nights! This site is a very safe environment for children and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Very Nice site in a lovely location easy reach of New Forest, Southampton and Portsmouth.

Good facilities but could be better, especially if the site is fully booked only 3 showers for the whole site and not cleaned as much as I would have liked. Nice that you can pick your own spot on arrival and group together if wanted, however this can be a negative when a large group (8+ tents/campers) park on your doorstep !

Manager was great and kids loved the campfire over the weekend, lots of space to run around and walks to take. Added bonus are the activities you can book, Kayaking was great fun.

This is a brilliant campsite!

I have stayed on this site 4 or 5 times now, and I am fairly certain that I will be back there again soon.

The facilities are really good, the shower/toilet block was always ok to use and the showers were surprisingly good.

There are plenty of things to do there such as the outdoor games equipment or the scavenger hunts, but there are also more adventurous activities available at a small cost. These include kayaking, canoeing, climbing and abseiling!

You can go to the bar in the evenings where it is always friendly, and there are games there for all the family including Steve's infamous Story Cubes!

I will definitely recommend this place to family and friends and I am sure I will be back there soon!
