Just Got back from this wonderful site. Kids loved it despite the weather(Hurricane bertha's Remains). Site staff very helpful and always cheerful. A very basic site that more than makes up for lack of facilities with it's charm. Despite 'nothing to do' the kids had to be near dragged back to the tent at night as they seemed to be too busy to come back on their own. Ponies, cows, deer, and donkey's roamed about freely from the forest and through Brockenhurst nearby. If you are looking for a full service site this is not for you, if you are looking for a site with character, then I can't recommend this site enough.

Wow. Just as I remember as a child!

We used to go every year as children and I didn't want to have my memories shattered - but wanted to take our children, aged 8, 9 and 12.

This is a real back to basics site, with the only facilities being chemical disposal points and bins.

We eeked out our electricity, so that we could shower the children after a day in the muddy streams. They had such fun on the rope swings over the water and riding their bikes around exploring and so did we!

The staff in the hut at the entrance are really friendly and helpful. There are lots of things to do locally and the nearest village is 5 mins in the car, or not too long a walk.

Horses and horse poo everywhere, I even had a pony come and sniff my head while I was reading my book in the sunshine. But somehow, it is all part of it.

As long as you don't mind camping a bit wild, then you will have a fab time.

Situated in the middle of the New Forest about a 1. 5mile walk from the village of Brockenhurst is this gem of a camp site.

Run by the camping and caravan club on behalf of the forestry commission this is a basic site with no facilities, so if your a glamper don't bother reading any further.

We stayed after prolonged rain, and signs of flooding were very evident in parts of the site. Although you can pitch anywhere you like we were also advised by the staff where not to pitch and we found a pitch which was firm and dry. Pitches are fairly flat throughout the site.

There are several water points around the site, as well as waste disposal, rubbish and recycling points.

The river Ober runs along one side of the site, and at this point it is little more than a large shallow stream which the children enjoyed paddling in. There are also other activities run by the managers for the children. Some kind of treasure hunt, a nature trail thing. Not too sure what they all are as we only have a baby who's too young for that stuff.

The site is open to nature so the ponies have a free run of the site, however I think someone must clean up after them as there wasn't that much mess about.

The site managers were helpful and friendly, and offer mobile phone & leisure battery charging for a fee as well as freezer pack re-freezing.

To further annoy glampers, we found only a very weak O2 mobile signal available, and very sporadic signal on Orange & T-Mobile, and no network on Vodaphone. Digital TV signal is good.

Generators are permitted between 9-11am and 3-5pm only.

The village of Brockenhurst has a variety of shops for souvenirs, cream teas and the like as well as 2 small supermarkets (Tesco Metro and Nisa). There is also a pet shop/camping supplies shop just in case you forget anything.

For those who like a take away, I can vouch for the Chinese and fish & chip shop.

Would we visit this site again. Yes

A great get away set in the New Forest with the moorland on one side and a stream in the trees on the other side. The site has basic facilities of providing just water and a wonderful view.

We were here as it was close to Brockenhurst so we could cycle over and see the Olympic Torch. So although you felt you were miles from any where Brockenhurst has shops, pubs and takeaways if you do not want to cook on site.

Staff were also very friendly with activities for kids to boot. An excellent escape to the New Forest

This site is set in a beautiful area in the middle of the new forest, with heathland to one side and trees and a stream to the other. You pitch where you like and where you can, as when we were their it was very busy and incredibly wet.

The site has a tendency to flood and there was lots of standing water. I wouldn't have wanted to have been in a tent.

This site is great for dogs and there were plenty there, there are no facilities apart from water and CDP.

Ponies and fouls wander between the caravans and tents

The site can be very peaceful apart from people running generators. We had four around us and the noise and smell was a nuisance

Simply beautiful with natural untampered charm, no facilities except drinking water and toilet empty point, all neat clean and easy to use.

I think it has a special something that made us relax and not want to go home. We cant wait to go back and explore some more. We pitched near the front with tree line behind us, facing the sun set over the heath.

Deer are regular visitors which you can see from the paths around the heath, and there is woodland with a stream, perfect for well behaved dogs. We saw many birds including woodpeckers, lapwing, stonechat and a tree creeper right beside us, and fortunately not too many noisy carrion types, so it was peaceful at night.

In June/july there are foals lying around everywhere snoozing in the sun. The staff were friendly, at the reception hut in the mornings, It was also brilliant value compared to many sites, 3 nights cost us about £30 with our camping club discount card.

I cycled almost completely off road to Brockenhurst village 1. 5 miles away. There are mostly caravans and campers, but we were in a tent and didn't feel awkward, and the toilet tent was easier than I imagined.

This site is lovely if like us you like to be peaceful, walk with nature and finally get around to reading that new book. We cant wait to go back.
