We booked a 4 night break at this site. The booking was easy, the directions were easy, although I have to say I think the speed bumps are a bit OTT.

On arrival we found our pitch easily as it was listed inside the wooden shed. Dont be put off by the pitch layout. The white posts are placed so you park between them but they do come out the ground so don't panic if you think you have to slalom them.

The chemical disposal area is not in the immediate vicinity which is fine but sadly there were 2 very large noisy dogs that barked every time you walked past them! This was somewhat unnecessary and ruined the peace and tranquillity of the site.

Having visited many sites in the New Forest I wouldn't say this one has direct access to the forest by foot, you have to use the car as the main road is quite busy. Therefore walking to the pub in Minstead The Trusty Servant was all along road and so too was The New Forest Inn. If you don't mind road walking that's fine but we had dogs so not ideal.

The showers are adequate, although the push button system and the old shower heads could do with some TLC. They were very clean though. The site itself is lovely and spacious and the views across the fields and lake lovely. We had a lovely mini break

This is a perfect site to chill out peaceful and in the heart of the forest no one bothers you and there's lovely walks. It was perfect for us to just relax and recharge, will certainly book again at least once a year. All good facilities.

We stayed here just for one night as a stopover on our way to Dorset. The communication with the owners when we were booking was excellent. We received detailed instructions about the site and found it without a problem. The inmformation board told us we were on pitch 4 which was on a bit of a slope but not too bad. Others have commented on the grass but I can't say it was that long when we were there, certainly not really short but not too bad either.

The site is small about 13 pitches and suited us fine for an overnighter. The facilities were clean and sufficient for the size of the site. Two unisex showers (we did not use but were told one was better than the other by another camper) and two toilets in the ladies. The cublicles are not big, if you are on the larger size you may struggle. There was also one sink for washing up which had plenty of hot water.

I would happily stay here for a week, hubby would have preferred bigger toilet cubicles.

Lots of wildlife, we saw an owl and at 3am I disturbed something as I walked across the field, not sure what it was though.

Nice little site especially if you want peace and quiet, we will certainly stay again.

Nice quiet site with good views over surrounding countryside. Communication via email up to our arrival was excellent and the owners provided detailed routes to avoid the road closure. The pitches are not level so blocks may be a good idea. The grass was very long when we stayed - it may benefit from a cut if possible. Toilets are of the luxury festival type - very clean and tidy with plenty of supplies available. We didn't use the showers this time. Washing up area is in a shed and hot water is plentiful and there is sufficient space. Information board is useful too. The site was not full when we stayed - there were 4 other units. Owners live off site - they came to collect the money in the early evening. Visited the New Forest Inn at Emery Down - a good 20 minute walk away, and the Trusty Servant at Minstead - which would be about a 45 minute walk, although we cycled to this one. Both lovely friendly country pubs in stunning countryside. Would like to have eaten in one of them as the food looked amazing. Recommend the site if you like cycling or walking, or just sitting and admiring the view, listening to the birds, sheep and lambs.

We stayed here after spending 7 nights on the touring part of a Parkdean site as we were looking for peace and quiet in the New Forest. We certainly found that. This site is quite basic in facilities - but that suited us perfectly. There is only one portakabin containing two small toilet cubicles and one shared basin for the ladies. Not very private for washing or brushing teeth but it sufficed. Washing up facilities are in a shed - adequate enough and the water tap was half way down the field. The showers are located next to the toilets, in a shed type building but are adequate although the shower heads could have done with unblocking. The site is long and narrow and when we arrived (just after noon) there was no choice of where to pitch as we had booked EHU so we had to pitch in the corner furthest away from the facilities. The site is not particularly level and it does have wooden poles carrying power cables running through it.

The site is peaceful and in a great, central location for exploring the New Forest. Most people kept to the rules of silence between 11pm and 7am - all that is except the sheep in the adjacent field who became extremely loud around 3am - shame they couldn't adhere to the rules too!

Atmosphere was relaxed and campers were friendly. Owner came to collect our rent on our 4th night!

Would definitely stay here again but would bear in mind the broken nights of sleep!
