Great site. Pitches are spacious and site is well maintained. Showers/toilets are clean and well maintained.

Easy to find and great for transport links (especially the train!).

Quiet site with all ages there who respected the other campers.

Owners helpful and friendly - prolonged stay with no problems.

As there are no facilities other than showers/toilets/washing up facilities the site is very quiet but that is exactly what we liked about it!

There is a shop about a 10 minute stroll away (and butchers/post office/chemist/pub.

Wonderful location!

Our first visit to Rushcroft farm. The site looks well kept, grass mowed, pitches generous size, nice flower baskets at entrance. No 'welcome' from site staff/owners, on arrival, just a notice asking guests to look at board for pitch allocated, which we thought a little impersonal. Site manager appeared some while after our arrival. Services sited in an outdoor enclosure, water, chemical disposable point, grey water, washing up facility. Siting chemical disposal point so close to washing up facility not ideal. Blockage in chemical disposal point highlighted this! The railway is close to the site and although trains not very frequent, noise difficult to ignore. We felt that 2 toilets/washing up sink in one block and 2 showers with toilets inside cubicles in another, were not adequate even when site not very busy and a fair distance from those in tents. We saw no evidence of regular cleaning of facilities in the week we stayed, mirrors in toilets not cleaned at all! Appreciate it is difficult to make old buildings look 'modern' and fresh but it has been done on several sites. Overall we found this site impersonal and the state of the facilities fell well below other sites we have visited. It is a nice location and good base for visits to many 'places of interest but we would not use this site again.

Stayed at Rushcroft Farm for 3 evenings on the May Bank Holiday. We (my wife, son and I) were in our new Hi-Gear Gobi Elite 4 tent (4 man).

We were the first to turn up on Friday morning and the site was a little muddy due to recent rain. Unfortunately despite booking they had forgot to reserve a pitch for us so we were put on the grass next to the hard standing pitch for caravans as this was last place with Electric Hookup Point.

We were on a slight hill but it did not cause too much of an issue. Given choice I would sooner have been in the rear field as it was flatter and the views were nicer (we were facing the trees with the railway line).

The site Warden's were nice and friendly and showed us what we needed to know.

We did not spent too much time on site as we were here to explore the New Forest and this site is in a good location to use as a base to do this.

When we returned in the early evening on Friday, the site was now quite busy. You do get some noise from the trains, but you tend not to notice this.

The facilities were clean and in good order. The village is a 10 minute walk away and has some shops (though we did not get chance to use these - they have 09:00 - 17:00 opening hours).

There are 2 showers, both of which also have toilets, there are then 2 other unisex toilets. Giving a total of 4 toilets on site. Personally I think given how busy it was, it would have been better with separate toilets as there was often a queue (I don't mind queuing for a shower but toilet is something else!)

Overall its a pleasant site, well priced and an excellent location for exploring the New Forest.

We stayed at Rushcroft Farm for 5 nights over Easter 2014.

The camp-site was quite busy as it was the Easter holidays.

A five minute walk gets you into the village, we ate at the Silver Hind on our first night- good food but pretty expensive.

Very good shop in the village that sells just about everything including a very good selection of vegetables and fruit.

Unfortunately the dog walk belonging to the site was very wet so couldn't use it which was a shame as walking around the village wasn't very much exercise for our very energetic Springer-doodle Martha.

The toilet and shower blocks really need to be updated, the showers cost 20p for three minutes which is fine but it took me quite a while to get the right temperature and on my first visit I had to leave the shower with shampoo still in my hair!

Please please put some sanitary bins in the toilets.

Overall a good stay but needs a makeover

Stayed for a week during which the 'big storm' arrived, although it didn't really affect us or the site itself.

Lovely quiet site but there were only 6 units there when we stayed. Makes sure you have a torch with you, it's very dark at night. Yes you can hear the trains but didn't notice them much. Easy 5 min walk to the village which has a londis, couple of pubs, pharmacy, deli and butcher. The train station gives access to a lot of the forest and further afield if you don't fancy driving.

My main issue with the site is the facilities or lack of them. There are just 2 unisex toilets and 2 showers which also have a toilet in them. The info board at the site says it has 30 pitches, how can 2 showers and 2 toilets cope? The cleaning of the facilities also is not up to standard.

Would not stay here again because of the facilities but would return to the area.

A lovely rural site with very welcoming and helpful wardens, clean facilities, yes there are trains, but you get used to them very quickly, and the local pub (the Silver Hind) is great, if a little unconventional! Local shop and Pharmacy 5 mins walk should you need them, and Dog's are welcome everywhere in Sway.

The local station is on the lane down to the site and the ferry to the IoW is only 15 minutes away, we will be returning.
