I have just returned from a pleasant, six night stay at Alderbury campsite. This small site is quite long and fairly narrow with a central shingle road way. The site is surrounded by tall trees and dense thicket which provides excellent shelter from stormy weather. One day and night were very stormy, the tops of the trees flailed about wildly but at ground level there was just a gentle wind and the tents were undisturbed. I was very pleased with the quality of the facilities. There is a brick built amenities block. Both ladies and gents had two properly built brick shower cubicles with quarry tile floors. The cubicles were nicely spacious with plenty of room to dry oneself. The showers were free with as much hot water as you wanted and they worked very well. Each cubicle had a proper wooden door. The Gents had two lavatory cubicles and a urinal, the Ladies had three cubicles. Both sides had 3 wash basins with as much hot water and liquid soap as you wanted. There was also a wash room with a stainless steel sink unit – again as much hot water as you wanted. Also there was a washing machine and tumble drier. I did not use these but I did see others using them so I can state that they do work. About 300 yards away is the A36 trunk road. Some commenters have complained about this and the noise (why did they not check on Google Maps and why did they stay if they disliked it so much?) The traffic runs past at speed and there is the constant swoosh of passing vehicles. It was not especially loud and before long we hardly noticed it. Likewise, adjacent to the site is a business/trading estate that does make some noise between 9am and 5pm, again it did not bother us and certainly didn’t spoil our stay. I always sleep with ear-plugs as all campsites can be noisy and here I had six good nights sleep. Another commenter complained about excessive mud. We had camped during a very wet week and there was a predictable amount of mud – but camping and rain always makes mud – even on expensive glamping sites. There were a number of caravans that were there for a duration and seemed to be occupied by people who worked in the area from Monday to Friday. They were all friendly, and came and went quietly. There is a junction to the A36 close by. This made getting to Salisbury and other road journeys very easy. About 300 yards from the site is the Three Crowns public house. This is a very pleasant pub with large gardens. The pub does very good food every evening – so it is possible to camp here and have a very pleasant evening out without needing to drive. How many delightful rural idylls have that facility? The site charged a very reasonable price – less than half the price of some others nearby. This site is absolutely fine and I will happily come here again.

We stayed at this campsite over the bank holiday weekend in our big family tent with hookup. It wasn't our first choice of campsite but we booked quite late and were just pleased to get in somewhere! If you want to spend lots of time at your campsite, gazing out over beautiful countryside then this is not the site for you - there isn't much open space on the site itself with hedges for boundaries. It's a small basic campsite - no shop or entertainment etc etc BUT it has everything that you need. The showers and toilets were clean and in very good condition, there is a washing up/laundry area and easy access to bins, taps/electric hookup. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. Over the road is the Three Crowns pub which has a playground and serves very good food and nice beer! If you take a couple of minutes to walk into the village there is a shop/post office and a park further on. The bus stop to Salisbury is right outside the campsite. It's a great base to explore the New Forest - we took trips into Moor Valley Park and Monkey World but there were lots of closer options too. There was a bit of road noise but it didn't bother us much and we had a lovely time. It probably still wouldn't be our first choice campsite if we came back but it's a perfectly good plan B! (and good value too)

We booked this site 2 days before visiting. We had read the negative feedback on this site but my gut feeling was to give it a go. We have no complaints at all. The owner was extremely helpful when we booked, when we arrived and during our stay. The site is near a dual carriageway but quite honestly you really don't notice the traffic and it did not disturb our stay (in fact we suffered more lasT year at a site in Wales where children in the neighbouring field screamed and swore whilst playing football from 6 in the morning to 11 at night).

This site is so convenient for Salisbury with a bus stop just outside the gate. The pub opposite The Three Crowns does extremely good food. The toilet/shower block is clean with plenty of hot water.

We enjoyed our stay and I hope that anyone else wanting to give it a try, go with your gut feeling and ignore the unnecessary bad review posted previously.

Reviewer: Neilandlesley 11 reviews from this member

Site owner charged £19 per night for unit, two adults and hook up despite web site stated rates and rates quoted in various magazines. Trying to find anything positive about this site but can not. Very noisy day and night with traffic on the main A road and industrial estate next to the site. Pitches really small, muddy, covered in rotting leaves with the gravel hard standing so sparse that they are a waste of time. Our pitch covered in leaves masking all the dog mesh that got everywhere. 10 amp electric not 16. Gravel track as access to the whole site again needs relaying and more stone to dry it out and stop some of the mud. The toilet and shower block is disgusting. Cold, damp, mouldy, peeling paint, cobwebs and not cleaned at all in the three days we were there. One shower only in the gents as the other has been ripped out and this one was horrible. Filthy and water dripping everywhere.

Site is no where near a standard that can justify the rate being charged. We used the toilet / shower block once and never again! Struggle to understand how it has got this bad after the last review in March.

The pub over the road is ok and is at least somewhere to get away from the site too.

Lovely little site, a weekend stay to visit the new forest. Very well located to local attractions. Great facilities warm showers and clean toilets. Friendly owners willing to help with any problems. Lovely quiet place with a pub across the road and local shops as well as being close the Salisbury and the bus stop outside the site. Really enjoyed our stay, will most definitely be visiting again soon

Really Really happy with my stay! Lovely site, Lovely helpful owner, excellent and thoughtful facilities including what looks like a new baby changing area.

Great location for visiting local site of interest e. G. Salisbury, Stonehenge, The new forest, Bath, Bournemouth and so many more.

Toilet Blocks were clean with free showers, someone has taken care of them with thoughtful touches like steps for children to get to the sinks. Great and spacious indoor washing up facilities.

Really happy will definitely be back soon
