 I also have to disagree with some of the comments that have been posted about this campsite. When you arrive the sign outside says 'basic campsite'. And the facilities are indeed basic. What more can you expect for 7 quid in this part of the world? Incidentally we didn't have to queue for the loo or showers once, and we stayed on a Saturday night when the site was pretty full.

We stayed for one night and thought the location was fantastic. It was really easy to find walks - just leave the site, go in any direction for a couple of minutes and you're in the middle of the forest. The location was complimented by a woman in the neighbouring tent also.

I would recommend this site to those who enjoy being close to the elements and don't mind roughing it. Those who need to bring the kitchen sink with them are best looking elsewhere.

 I have to disagree with most of the other reviews we have never found the owners to be rude or offencive. Annie and Bob have always made our family (2 young children and a dog) very welcome. We return many times through the year and while the toilets are basic believe me I have seen a lot worse! with fantastic safe walking, cooked breakfast and cream teas on the doorstep how can people really complain? This is what 'real camping' is.

This site is in a great location in one of the most beautiful parts of the forest and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, it looked as though the cows had only been moved out the day before and the fields were full of cow pats, to the point where it was like walking through a minefield and it was hard to find a big enough poo-free area for our tent. The grass was very long, too, which made it difficult to suss out a reasonably level spot. It was also a bit of a haven for midges as there is a stream at the edge of the adjacent fields.

The biggest drawback was the showers and toilets though. There were only 2 toilets and one shower (no separate facilities for men and women) and being a bank holiday weekend there were horrendous queues. At midday, there seemed to be only tepid water, which is a bit of a bummer when you've just parted with 50p for a shower. They were also pretty grubby and although at first I put this down to the sheer numbers using them it soon became clear that they were never very clean (ancient cobwebs in the shower and some very dubious marks on the toilet walls).

Great site if you don't mind roughing it though, and if they ever refurbish the showers etc it would be really good.

Couldn't find any space at any other campsite remotely near the New Forest as the weather forecast was good. Found space here, 5 for the night. Excellent breakfast in the Farmhouse for 4.50. A basic site, (1 shower, 50p) but very friendly.
