Reviewer: Lezerley 1 review from this member

A back-to-basics, yet spotlessly clean, well laid out and maintained site. Pitches are large and even though not that full, campers were spaced out around the various fields so that no one was squashed in and there was plenty of room to play sports/games etc. Just 4 hook-ups which are close to the facilities but as we booked very last minute this was fine, would ask to be slightly further away next time but all went quiet by 11pm. We took our dog and they provide a dog walking area where we could let him off. They even provided poo bags and a bin. The washing-up area is kept clean and large buckets are provided to carry it all around. The young team are often around or contactable by mobile, they are both friendly and efficient. They come round and collect fees during the evening and take orders for any breakfast baguettes at the weekend. These are a must. They also rent out fire baskets which create a lovely atmosphere in the evenings although we didn't get one as the temperature had been about 30 degrees all days. Fordingbridge is a lovely small town, we eat out in The George one evening overlooking the river and it was lovely. There are walks and attractions in abundance, Bournemouth took us about 30 minutes. The campsite is about a 5 minute drive just outside Fordingbridge on a quiet road, there is a village shop and post office just up the road which sells super filled rolls. We were struck with the friendliness of everyone around the area from the site to shops and pubs. I would thoroughly recommend this site and will definitely be going back.

We have just spent 11 nights at this camp site and could not find a single thing that could be faulted. The crew who run this site are a fantastic group of teenagers who work relentlessness and nothing is to much trouble for them. The pitches are very big and camp fires are allowed you can even rent fire baskets from the crew who also sell you the logs and kindling, they even freeze your ice packs for free and will loan you some whilst yours are being refrozen, and on Saturday and Sunday mornings you can have a freshly cooked breakfast baguette for a very reasonable price and they even deliver it to your tent.

We were a bit apprehensive about the toilets being the portable type but were very surprised at just how clean the crew kept them. The showers were also kept exceptionally clean and you never seemed to run out of hot water, plus they were free and you didn't have to keep pressing a button.

The washing up area was also kept very clean and they even supplied washing up liquid and cleaning clothes and scourers.

I would recommend this site to anyone and will definitely be back.

The town of fordingbridge is very quaint with a variety of shops and eateries, highly recommend the bakery.

Once again we would like to thank the crew for all there hard work making our holiday an unforgettable experience even down to having water fights with our grandchildren.

We visited Manor Meadows over the bank holiday weekend. The booking was so easy - I got an immediate reply & a booking confirmation with all the prices shortly afterwards. The pitches are huge so plenty of space. The facilities are kept very clean & were constantly being cleaned by the crew all weekend. Logs were delivered to your pitch so we had wonderful campfires & we could also have had ice packs & breakfast baguettes delivered. There was a lost property box & you could use play toys from a communal box. There are even benches to sit on while waiting for a shower.

The staff were brilliant - very friendly - one of the best sites we have stayed on - we will be back next year.

Fantastic site, can't find fault with anything.

The teenagers that run operations here are brilliant. They check on you throughout your stay just in case there is anything you need. It's the little touches that make this site special. Very clean toilet/shower/wash up area, and they even provide washing up liquid, bowls, trugs to carry your pots and pans and toilet paper.

The fire baskets are what elevates this review from 9 to 10 stars. There is nothing like having a real fire whilst camping, and because the site is only open 6 weeks of the year, the grass has time to recover.

The pitch sizes (as per other reviews) are huge. We had a 4 man dome, a 2 man dome plus 2 vehicles and we still could have had the room to pitch another 3 or 4 tents.

I've never felt compelled to leave a review on any site I've found here, but this place truly is a gem. We will be back next year!

Just returned from a 5 night stay -originally booked for 4 nights but site so lovely we extended our holiday. We had 2 pitches which were really spacious and such a different experience to the usual sites where tents are almost touching in busy periods. We had 6 children and a dog between our 2 families and the site was great for kids to go off and play - there is also a dedicated dog area. Toilets and showers really clean and the facilities for washing up are faultless. This site is probably the best we have stayed at. The staff team were so helpful and polite - great role models ! The site encourages camp fires as long as they are raised off the ground. The site is really handy for exploring the area and the choice of visiting New Forest and beaches within the same holiday was really appealing - we didn't have time to visit everywhere we would like so will definitely return and this campsite will be our first choice !

Our family and friends came to camp this August. We came here on great reviews. We were very happy with our visit. The credit must go to the lads that run the site. They are friendly, professional and just how I would like my two boys to turn out. The campsite is nice. The pitches very big. We had a huge tent, car and van with room to spare. The toilet are OK. Sink area for washing up, with a bowl and if any left washing up liquid to loan if you need them. The showers were great and welcoming. Fresh water tap available by the wash up sink. If you take your dog there is an area just for them with free poo bags! You can have a camp fire which was lovely as it got cold and damp past 8-9pm. You can rent one or take your own as long as you use bricks to keep off grass. The kids were very safe, we were hoping there would be woods near by for them to explore but sadly not. But they all played with other campers right in the middle in between tents and they had a great time. Us adults happily watching with our own fun to be had. The site was three fields and the road not to close to be bothered by traffic. The surrounding areas for walking etc were OK but had to really look to find the path. When you leave the site I think you make a right turn and walk down the road. If I remember correctly there is another turn to the right that has a hidden footpath sign. Or leave the site to the left and keep walking 30min to the town for food shops takeaways etc. The site lads recommended the Chinese/chip shop takeaway New Wong Gardens. The food was delicious! We took an hour trip to Swanage, the town was lovely and the chips fantastic. Got to go there again just to sit on the soft sandy beach. On reviews a great kids park was mentioned. It is right in the village of Fordingbridge. Find the CO-OP shop and walk past until you come to a bridge. The park is a sports field with a garden and the kids park next to it. It has the usual play things with a sand pit and water play section. The kids played happily for ages. Dogs only allowed in the garden. There is a pay and display near by. We enjoyed our stay and very much recommend this site as it was well run very friendly and reasonable price.
