Just come home from a 2 week stay at Hoburne Bashley, this was our 1st visit – good clean site.

Great circus whilst we were there, the whole family enjoyed it! Free for those staying on site. Got rather wet though but all part of the fun! Think this is only on during school holidays though.

Shower blocks not bad, not CC standards, but plenty of hot water, mind you they are the push button type and some were considerably longer than others. Had to laugh at the “hair dryers” – just usual push button hand dryers but placed higher up on the wall. OK to give you a basic dry but had to finish off in the caravan.

Agree with other comments on going to pitch 1st, there is definitely nowhere to park your caravan whilst you book in, husband had to park on the road, Although they say there is number plate recognition installed so you need to book in before going to pitch!

The pavement from the campsite to the entertainment block was uneven and could do with sorting out, lots of puddles when we had heavy rain.

Pitch was nice and big but again I would agree with other comments and would rather go to Beech field rather than Aspen. Wardens were really hot on not parking on the grass for some but not for others. They made us park our caravan right back so we could get our car in front of the van rather than across the front, but our neighbours were allowed to park their car across :( this meant our annex for the awning was half over the EHU/Water stand, so not ideal.

Nisa on site shop good for the basics and at prices you would expect, but handy if you need anything.

Didn’t stay for much of the entertainment, apart from the bingo, even won a few pounds, so all good. Bar prices more than we are used to paying, but what you expect. Had a few meals there too, always hot and didn’t have to wait too long. Always difficult to get a seat, people were even queuing to get in early for the children’s entertainment.

Pools good, didn’t get to use the outside pool much due to the weather, but enjoyed it when we did. Inside pool a godsend when the weather was bad, kept the family amused.

Used the laundry whilst we were there, prices as you expect (£3. 50 for a wash/80p for dryer) had to get tokens from reception.

Would return though.

We have just come back from a 15 days at bashley. Have to agree with others the site is well maintained and washing facilities with plenty of hot water. Our only grumble would be to get to the toilet blocks the access to them is very restrictive which means children & some adults walking through the pitches that are around them. I was glad we were not pitched there. However as they have crammed lots of pitches in not surprising, as you found yourself walking a long way to use these facilities. Used the Nisa on site for a few bits & bobs at the prices you would expect at the site shop. Used the swimming pool, steam room & Sauna which was of a good quality & very clean. The bar in the evenings is what you would expect at a site like this with lots of small children around. If you want a quiet drink then go early! All in all would we visit again yes we would but would want to be pitched in the smaller field

We've been to this site 3 times now, and it's always been excellent.

The pitches are large, well spaced out with hardstanding surrounded by grass and normally hedges between. Its quiet at night - not many revellers, and well away from roads so there is no background traffic noise.

The shower / toilet blocks are heated, clean and hot water all day. There is also the ability to book a private bathroom if required.

The wardens stay on site, and are great - helping people getting onto pitches on arrival and always there to assist.

If it is your first time - drive straight onto the camping field (on your left as you drive into the park) to find your pitch before going to check in at the main reception. The main reception area isn't really suitable for caravans to stop, or turn. It can be done, but it's a pain. There are no signs telling you this, so be aware.

The general Hoburne facilities are excellent, although the club is too small for the amount of visitors in peak times, and although the kids love Sammy Seahorse, getting a table is in the evenings nigh on impossible unless you arrive very early. We've not tried the food, but it's typical holiday park fare (burgers, chips, etc. )

The indoor swimming pool is great, with a sauna and steam room. The outdoor pool is nice too, although the English weather makes it a rare opportunity to use it.

There's a play park for children, a nine hole golf course, and crazy golf too.

If you want an easy family caravan holiday you can't do better than Bashley.

Outstanding site, clean regardless of season, staff excellent, pitches immaculate, kids well entertained, facilities very clean and perfectly maintained.

Kids loved the play parks, and Sammy sea horse was a definite hit. Our only disappointment was that the archery is no longer available, and the 'nature trail' was a walk alongside static caravans with signs that weren't correct to the surroundings, but hey, we saw a squirrel lol

I would agree with a previous review that the access road is far too narrow for touring caravans. It would also be a great help to let you know that if you have pre booked a touring pitch that you can drive straight to it then check in at reception? Nowhere to park and lots of abuse when you try to swing your unit anywhere near reception is the result!

On a positive note, as this was our first time here, we had thought we had booked a fully serviced pitch. With a 90 year old mother in law with us, we were pretty much 99% we had!It turned out that we hadn't ? but the manager and site wardens bent over backwards to site us in a more convenient spot and also lent us an aquaroll & waste water container as we hadn't brought ours with us, thinking we were on a serviced pitch.

On the whole, we really enjoyed our stay here and will return. Very conveniently located for the coast and New Forest, New Milton great for shops etc. Dog walking fine, Shower and toilet block very clean, though shower run time very short.

Bar and shop convenient though over priced to some degree. I cannot comment on entertainment or quality of food as we didn't sample either.

I will also agree that people will insist on walking through your pitch to get to the toilets, pretty annoying at times. Especially for our jack Russell!

On the whole, a very nice site and location.

NOW we know you go to your pitch THEN check in it should be a much more pleasurable experience next time. It is a bit of a shame that the some of the static caravan holidaymakers seem to have such short tempers and use such bad language when you are trying to negotiate the reception challenge with a touring caravan and it holds them up in their car for a few minutes? Some people should chill out a bit? They are on holiday after all?

The area is an excellent place to visit and we will be back.

We have just come back from a fantastic week at bashley. The site is by far the best site we have visited in 10 years we have been camping/caravanning. Upon arrival a couple of very friendly wardens came and helped us onto our pitch which was lovely and although it would have been no problem to do it ourselves was very nice of them. Throughout the holiday they were always on hand and happy to help with anything. This is a site that has something for everyone and has a very friendly and safe feel.

Will definitely be returning soon. Also good to mention that the pitches are lovely and flat and very big
