Just back from a few nights stay here and overall I was very pleased with the site although it is quite expensive

The location is brilliant and the site itself is immaculate. The bathroom and showers were spotless and frequently cleaned

The only slightly annoying thing was the pitch they put me on was quite cramped and had a massive metal drain cover in it. Below this was drain water which attracted midges. It wasn’t the end of the world but for £30 a night I expected perfection.

Well maintained small site in a beautiful setting near Ringwood New Forest.

We were in a small tent with EHU for a long weekend.

Slightly sloping pitch but nothing to worry about.

Modern and clean shower & loo block.

Good washing up area with built in drainer which was handy.

Well stocked shop, helpful staff which assisted us with bike route maps.

Welcoming traditional pub on site with pub grub, a little pricey but they have the monopoly here.

Cannot comment on play area as this was our first camping trip with no kids for a VERY long time.

Some local cheesy radio in the shower block would be nice to block out unwanted bathroom noises ! Just a thought.

All in all a lovely little site in a peaceful setting.

I would recommend.

I'd seen this site advertised for a number of years and for various reasons had not managed to get there. My mistake.

Easy access, great location for the New Forest, an excellent pub on site serving good quality food and own brewed beers and more than enough underfloor heated showers and sinks to cater for a full site in peak season I'm guessing.

OK, not all the pitches are dead level and when we arrived in late October it was a bit soggy in places, but, hey, what do you expect.

It has a well stocked shop and offers daily newspapers and freshly baked pastries in the morning. Service couldn't be better.

If you have dogs it's a dream and even if you don't you can take the circular walk to the next pub, directions are on the bar in the Red Shoot Inn.

We've already promised ourselves to visit again and introduce our children and their families to it.

Lovely site, we've not stayed there for over 20 years and great to revisit.

Right in the forest and surrounded by farm animals, plus horses at the gate most mornings.

Excellent facilities and loads of hot showers with luxurious under floor heating. I didn't have to queue ever even though the site was full. My only negative comment is that whoever decided where to site the toilet roll holders may never have sat on a toilet in their life!

Will definitely return

We stayed at Red Shoot during Half Term week at the end of May.

It’s in a fantastic location for walks and cycling within the New Forest, without the need to jump into the car. You can borrow maps from reception with various routes that you can walk. On your return to the site you can pop into the Red Shoot Inn for a nice refreshing drink, the food is also very good here too.

All the staff on site are extremely friendly and helpful. The little shop is one of the best we have experienced on a campsite, with just about everything you need for your stay. They bake their own pastries (Croissants etc) on site, you can either order the day before or get down their early in the hope that they have some left. There are also a couple supermarkets (Sainsbury’s and Waitrose) in nearby Ringwood.

The pitches are close together, but this gives a very friendly and sociable feel to the site. Our Kids (8 and 11) made plenty of friends and they played around site and playground. You always knew where they were, which made our stay as parents that more relaxing too.

The Toilet/Showers and Washing up facilities were excellent and were always clean and never had to queue for showers and plenty of hot water.

We hired some bicycles in the village of Burley and went for a 8. 5 mile ride around the forest. We also went on a Hack (Horse Riding) from Bagnum Equestrian Centre. Both were a fantastic experience for all the family.

Overall, we couldn’t recommend this site and the New Forest enough. It is such a beautiful part of the country and wonderful to see all the wild ponies roaming about in the natural habitat.

This is an absolutely lovely site. Situated in a fairly wild part of the forest, the site is surrounded by amazing walks and cycle rides that show the different habitats and the famous ponies of the forest off to their best.

Facilities on the site are of the highest quality – modern and spotlessly clean toilets and showers, and a well-stocked shop for bread, newspapers, other food and household essentials as well as beer and wine. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.

Pitches are well-spaced, mostly fairly level and just under half of them have electric hook-up.

An added bonus is the lovely Red Shoot Inn next door that serves great beer and home-cooked food, but people travel a long way to eat there so advance booking for the busier meal services is essential.

We will definitely return and thoroughly recommend this site.

Reviewer: BillyOcean VWCali 2 reviews from this member

Stayed at Red Shoot over the Easter break.

A warm and friendly welcome and shown to our pitch, which was very close to our neighbours tent but, being novice campers, assumed this is just how it is.

Shower block, toilets and washing up station are immaculate and staff are noticeably present on site, cleaning facilities and undertaking maintenance. There is a small play area for younger children.

As per previous reviewer, agree re costs of EHU - very expensive at £6. 50/night. Altogether for the four of us in a small camper the per night cost was £43. 50 which, given we are a small unit (without an associated motor vehicle) and light users of the facilities, was high.

It is in an excellent location for access into the Forest and local towns/villages, and the pub sells lovely food; also has its own brewery I understand. The on-site shop sells food and relevant accessories for camping, plus you can order in croissants, fresh bread, newspapers etc.

This was our first trip away in our campervan. On balance, it was a good site for our first trip away, but it was very busy and we were very closely packed-in. Cost per night is high compared to sites with similar facilities/cleanliness but I guess its proximity/being in the New Forest, this is the resultant cost.

Good location in the north of the New Forest area, ideal for walkers and cyclists with routes direct from site. But £6. 50 per night for electric hook-up is an absolute rip-off - equivalent to a domestic annual electricity bill of well £2000 ! A huge amount to pay for just keeping my leisure battery charged and boiling the kettle - I appreciate they have to cover the cost of maintaining the infrastructure but such a mark-up in profiteering at its worst. I travel extensively around the UK in my campervan and this is probably the most expensive electric hook-up I have come across.

A lovely area to visit. The site is warm and welcoming. Very busy when we arrived with so many units we did feel quite confined. Our grandson loved it and made so many friends very quickly. Shower block was very good and we would definitely return should we be in the area again. Nothing to do with the site but the pub was only two steps down from a derelict cafe. Such basic thrown out food but there is a lovely one a mile up the road.

Have just come home from a 3 night stay at Red Shoots and wanted to make sure we left a quick review after a lovely break!

The site is very well laid out, although there were not too many people staying whilst we were there. The shower and toilet facilities are really very good. Some people said they had an issue with the push button showers, but I really don't see why. They were free, immaculately clean and very well thought out with a separate drying area all in the same cubicle. A real treat after some sites we've stayed at!

The site itself was very clean and tidy and the pitches are a good size. The pub on site is very friendly and excellent with dogs. We ate here and the food was very good.

Lots of good walks accessible without the need to drive anywhere as the footpaths run through the site. Brilliant for dog walkers.

We would definitely return next time we're visiting the area. Thank you.
