Dot's campsite is absolutely delightful. A spacious field with very generous pitches around the edge, and a central grassy area for the kids to play.
This is proper camping - no heated toilet blocks with hairdryers, just spotlessly clean portaloos (3), 2 gas powered showers, hot and plenty of pressure, and a lovely shelter with washing up sink, freezer for ice blocks, 2 sinks and lots of tourist info.
Lots of thoughtful touches like insect repellent wipes and icepops are laid on, and disposable bbqs or firebaskets and wood are available to buy. There are goats and pigs in the field next door, and kids are welcome to help at feeding time.
There's a pub in Braemore, a 10min walk, and another in Wood Green, the horse and groom, a 20min walk. Good shop in Wood Green too.
Great access to the new forest for cycling!
Dot is only allowed to open for 28 days a year, so opens only weekends, but I'd gladly spend a week here exploring the area!
This is a lovely quiet site, a tiny bit of road noise from the main road if the wind is blowing the wrong way, and views of open countryside all around.
We had a fantastic weekend camping at Dots farm with our two granddaughers. On arrival we had a very warm welcome from Dot, the camp site was just great not over crowded and very safe for our granddaughters to cycle and play and still be in sight. We hired a Bell tent from 'Old Crocks Vintage Hire' it was pure luxury the tent was all equipped ready and waiting for us when we arrived, is all we needed to bring was our clothes and food, it was great not having to worry about anything. My grandaughters said it was the best camping ever, We think it was the Bell tent and Dots ice pops that made it for them. Fantastic time we will definitely be going back.
We had a super weekend stay, at dots field, lovely child friendly, huge welcome when we arrived, which then dot explained how everything worked, the showers are amazing ( our the children loved them!) Such great value for money!and we have already booked to go back in a couple of weeks time. Local town is only 5 minutes away, so brilliant for topping up on everything, with a great park an outside paddling pool, the beach is only 20 minutes away, and in the new forest with all the super walks and wildlife ! We loved it here and first visit back to the newforest in ten years and totally enjoyed ourselves, with 7 of us, ;-)
We are new to touring in our Campervan and chose Dots to try it out for the weekend. A great site with a warm welcome, kept immaculately clean by Dot. It has all we needed, Porta-loos, gas heated showers and a washing up area that included a freezer for our ice packs. Two pubs serving food within walking distance (take a torch at night), and a community run village shop nearby. (Not open on Sunday). A level grass pitch of good size, we saw comments regarding the nearby road noise but didn't find this a problem. Any concerns speak to Dot on one of her numerous rounds, she can't do enough for you. Kids big and small will enjoy feeding time for the pigs and goats in the adjacent field. On the edge of the New Forest, with all that has to offer within walking distance, it suited us down to the ground and we will return, can't recommend it any higher than that.
What a lovely site, dot goes out of her way to welcome you, although toilets and showers basic, are kept beautifully clean, plenty of space between units, and for children to run free, pubs and shop within walking distance, also the new forest, and the tiny villages in between, there is so much to see, the fighting cock pub in goldhill has donkeys in residence!, will definitely be returning and would recommend to fellow campers,
