Simply Superb!

Camping as camping should be, kids have the freedom to roam in a safe environment.

We have been coming to Bill’s field since our youngest was in nappies. She takes her GCSE’s this summer ;)

Each year we have always managed to squeeze in a week or more at Bills. We have our favourite places in the New Forest, but also discover new ones each visit as our girls have grown up.

Bills is a secret we would love to keep quiet, but that’s not fair on Bill and Helen. So thank you both for helping to make our girl’s holiday memories, as well as creating an environment where we have made some fantastic friends.

We stayed here on the August Bank holiday, this is a splendid camp site. The owner Bill and his wife were very friendly and helpful, and considering its the New Forest the price was reasonable. The site is well kept and the facilities although basic were kept very clean. The only problem we had was there were a lot of children playing football and other ball games and as a consequence we were inconvenienced with the ball hitting our tent or car on a far too often basis and sometimes very hard, we did ask them politely to play elsewhere but this just resulted in one of the parents taking a dim view with the attitude of kids have to play. As other reviews these people go there every year and obviously feel they own the place. The whole of the New Forest is a beautiful area there is loads to do there, and the villages are lovely places to visit. We would definitely use this site again.

What a gem of a site! Farmer Bill is so welcoming and friendly. Basic facilities but very clean, only snag was occasionally having no hot water if shower in use.

We just watched who was using which facility and timed our visit accordingly.

The evening volleyball was brilliant fun and really made it a very social evening, loved the flexible rules! Our son loved the chicken visit every morning and helping to feed, even had a little song too.

Jim the pony is beautiful as is Daisy the dog.

Raised camp fires are allowed and you can buy a barrow of wood for around £5

Only about 15 units on site, so didn't feel crowded, the centre had a goal, badminton net and volley ball net, a small climbing frame (tbh that could do with an updated version as a bit rickety but the kids didn't mind), the slide made a great car ramp.

There was also a lodge and Teepee on site, which we didn't get chance to look round though.

The toilets/showers could just do with maybe not being in a tin portaloo as the top/bottom had open bits so although you couldn't see in/out, everyone outside could hear you going and maybe one more washing up sink. Such minor points though.

Cost wise, I think it's worth every penny. We didn't find being right next to Sandy Balls a problem at all in fact it was great for cash machine, swimming pool etc. There was even a market there on Sunday morning. We had electric hook up, make sure you have a nice long lead as can be a distance between your pitch and the unit to plug into.

Sadly I wouldn't recommend the pub up the road (fighting cocks or something!)after hearing the landlady be very rude to another family re a messed up food order, they also ran out of glasses and I didn't find the toilets very clean.

Overall I really can't wait to go back, it's a refreshing change to be on such a great small site that covers most bases. See you soon!

Our Family have been visiting for the last 8 years every August bank holiday. It is a wonderful basic campsite with about 15 pitches but very family orientated. We all love visiting 'Bills Field' as the kids so affectionately call it. Toby the horse and Daisey May the dog are all part and parcel of the place and chicken time is a wonderful experience for all to enjoy at 9:30 every morning.

The facilities include 2 toilets and 1 shower (extremely clean), a table tennis table and a volley ball pitch and badminton pitch too. The owner makes you all feel welcome and encourages everyone to take part in the famous volleyball games that take place every night just after dinner. They get very competitive but are highly enjoyable, but The owner is on hand to officiate and usually always ends up on the winning team. Sometimes The owner will organise a talent contest which is optional for any talented people in your family to participate in, he gets a roaring fire going and we all sit down with a few drinks to enjoy. Great fun for all the family and I highly recommend a visit if you can.

I will continue to use this site for as long as possible. Would recommend a visit to Fordingbridge and Frogham Fair that always take place on the Saturday bank holiday. Cant recommend the site enough. The kids are so safe as there is one way in and only one way out. Great fun for you and the kids.

Reviewer: Stonemoon 1 review from this member

Had a great weekend camping at this site. The facilities, although basic, were kept immaculately clean and coped with the very small site of only 15 pitches. Pitches were set around the edge of the field with space for the children to play in the centre enabling parents to sit by their tents and keep an eye on them. There is a table tennis table, volleyball and badminton court, and football goal on site and the owner organizes a friendly game of volleyball in the evening which is great fun to watch if you are not happy or able to join in. Also chicken time in the morning is a great hit with the kids where they all gather together and sing 'chick chick chick chick chicken' around the chicken coop and collect the eggs. Also the 'Campers Concert' was great fun, all sitting round a small fire and anyone that has a talent can entertain, from the tiniest tots doing 'ring-a-ring-a-roses' to some amazing adults singing.

There is a large campsite nextdoor which has a Spar Shop, lovely footpath down to the River Avon, also eating places (Italian and fast food types). Also a family friendly pub, The Fighting Cox, is walking distance and on the open forest where there are donkeys, ponies and cattle grazing outside.

The site is about a half hour drive from sandy beaches at Bournemouth and the same distance from Salisbury and Southampton.

Relaxing and fun for all - really recommend this site!

This was our first camping trip with our dog and child. The site was lovely and quiet and the games in the centre were a nice touch. You can hear a little noise from Sandy Balls next door but nothing too much. We found it convenient to walk round there to the restaurant and use the shop.

I would agree that the toilets and showers are limited and I did have to wait a while for the shower. My toddler enjoyed the animal feeding in the morning. Overall a small, quiet and family friendly site that I would recommend to others.
