Reviewer: Krakinka 9 reviews from this member

Camped in the bottom field, no electric hook up. Large flat field & arriving lunchtime Friday meant I got a good spot, rear to the hedge, front door looking into the field. Afternoon got busier & by evening it was almost standing room only! It got even busier Saturday! By Sunday lunchtime the site was like a ghost town thank goodness!

This is a 'pitch anywhere' site and worryingly there is no advice or guidance on pitching etiquette or fire safety. Even more concerning that campfires are encouraged, on the ground! Ironic that in the 'rules' campers were asked to keep BBQ's off the ground to not scorch the grass! It was pretty gusty at times, making me paranoid that sparks or embers were going to set us all up in flames :-(

Although there were 'security' about teenage boys playing football until it was too dark to see the ball were not stopped and large groups of 5 or 6 tents camped together meant a reasonable bed time of 11pm was not achievable!

There were 8 showers & toilets in the ladies and surprisingly even though the site was busy I never had to queue for the toilet and only once for the showers. The facilities were of a good standard, though in my opinion needed to be checked more often by the cleaners. Or perhaps parents of small children should accompany their children!?!

Local pub the Chequers was quaint, just under a mile away. Food was of good standard, but 4. 50 for a pint of San Miguel & 6. 95 for a starter overpriced in my opinion.

Considering facilities, flatness of site, very reasonably priced at 10 per night per person & proximity to Lymington I would rate this site 7/10, but would not consider camping here again due to the large groups allowed and the lack of fire safety.

I must say I really enjoyed my stay at hurst view. I was particularly impressed by the security patrolling all evening as near us there was a large group playing music on and off all evening. After hearing many attempts by security to deal with the situation I'm happy to say the noise problem was solved and a good nights sleep was had by all. Well done for sam and dave who were very friendly the following evening when we discussed the problem. I would recommend this site to everyone. Amenities were excellent also and toilets were kept clean even during the night which was fantastic given it was a bank holiday and extremely bsy.

We emailed at a days notice, just after the Bank Holiday & received a prompt response, offering a pitch.

On arrival, we were told to choose our own pitch and given the map/ rules card, simple & informative.

We pitched in the large field by the hedge, as far away from the toilets as possible. A litter womble came round as we were setting up. I must admit, I did wonder if there would me much noise at night, but the place was silent after 9pm. It's not often we're the last ones up. Having a camp fire was great, it saved having to sneak logs into the BBQ!

Pitches are not marked. This is great for us, as we don't have a setup that lends itself to the per tent charging that some sites offer. This time we used 3 hiking tents, plus a hammock / tarp combo, some sites would have charged a fortune for this, even though it's smaller than a lot of family tents now.

The toilets were very clean, and never crowded. The showers were a little too cramped for someone of FB size, and a bit too hot. I'm never a fan of a ceiling mounted shower.

The breakfast bar became our first stop each morning, good food at reasonable prices.

We tend to have a site of choice for most areas of the UK, this is ours for the area.

Lovely family run campsite. Just a few miles down the road for us but we meet up as a family regularly. A very laid back site where you can pitch however you choose in whatever direction. Makes it really lovely for a large family with 4 caravans so we can all face each other and set up camp in the middle, also protecting us from the weather and you are also allowed small campfires!

There is some electric pitches but need booking in advance for busy weekends.

The site is always clean and tidy with lovely heated toilets/showers. There is someone always keeping the showers clean and there is separate family showers which is perfect for the young kids. Always plenty of hot water as well.

The kids spend all day in a massive playpark which is situated in the centre of the main camping field

The campsite is at the end of a long lane but still close enough to Lymington which has a fantastic market on a Saturday and also a massive car boot sale within 10 minutes drive on a Sunday. A 10 minute walk from the campsite through a beautiful nature reserve takes you to the waterfront where the kids can spend hours crabbing!

All in all, the best Campsite in the South by far!.

Had two nights here.

Pros: The wardens were very friendly and helpful. One male warden helped us out by lending us a socket because our electric in our van wasn't working. Very peaceful site (although not too busy). Toilets heated and clean. Plenty of hot water. Was able to choose our position and told we could leave when it suited us. We could also arrive early if we wanted to.

Cons: There is a residential site other side of the fence and we witnessed one woman walking her dogs from there and allowing them to do their business right next to our awning. It was only because she noticed my husband watching her that she then went back and got some bags to pick up the mess. Obviously she had no intention to begin with otherwise she would have had the bags with her. Some old mess was around our area - so check before you tread! Although nice hot water in showers, the shower head is fixed centrally on the ceiling so you cannot alter the direction of the spray, or the temperature. Shower area not too big so you had no choice but to get your hair wet.

Lovely walks down to the Nature Reserve and water's edge.

Very friendly owners and easy going. Just enough rules to ensure all have a pleasant stay. The site is located down a quiet country lane with direct access to nature reserve for great walks. Map provided with directions to good pubs!

Excellent for families with a playground and lovely powerful showers. All on site friendly and after dark very quiet. Security patrol at night to ensure safety and noise levels are kept to a minimum.

Bike hire available and small shop. Also breakfast bar serving great bacon baps amongst other choices open on weekends.

We are already planning a trip back in the summer as we enjoyed our stay so much. Lymington is a nice town with fab shops.

Would be nice if there were more electric points. They book up fast.
