 Wonderful site surrounded by the New forest.

The owners were organised with pitches stated on a list at reception, having paid in advance.

Went straight onto the site, found our pitch and settled in.

Toilet block was always clean, available and with plenty of toilet rolls and soap.

We enjoyed seeing a variety of birds whilst on site.

Sorry to only stay one night, but hope to return!

 Beautiful site with lovely views, excellent facilities and friendly staff. Handy for exploring the western New Forest and East Dorset.

The on site shop sells the cider which is made on site and is well worth trying. Even though itís a farm, itís in the heart of Bransgore Village, which has a Coop food store and a bakery as well as a Chinese takeaway and a garden centre with cafe selling delicious cakes. The site also has a charming walk around the fishing lake and woodland.

Handy for three pubs which serve food. We only tried the Three Tuns which had an excellent selection of vegetarian options very different from the usual risotto or lasagne.

We cycled to the nearby disused railway line which goes all the way to Brockenhurst, a charming town complete with ponies.

We also walked to Christchurch ( about 5 miles) down quiet country lanes apart from the last section along a busy bypass. Luckily we went on a Monday which turned out to be Market day. We caught a bus back to very close to the campsite so it would be possible to go both ways by bus if not up to walking. The bus is the Buster Forest Explorer which goes to other destinations too.

Burley is about 3 miles north and has a range of eateries including another local cider vendor, who also have a cafe and shop selling local produce such as interesting cheeses and delicious cakes and greengroceries.

 This campsite is very clean with hot showers and maintained well. They compiled with covid regulations and it felt very relaxed, safe and quiet.

There is no shop on site but one within walking distance as well as three decent pubs, the Three Tuns being a few minutes walk away with excellent ales!

You are completely left alone to enjoy your stay at Harrow Wood which was perfect for us to get away from all the covid stresses we are currently living in. Thank you Harrow Wood!

 The site staff where very welcoming on our arrival and through out our stay.

The site and toilet/ shower blocks where very clean, if a little outdated.

The weather was good and we enjoyed our stay very much.

 The last time I stayed here was around 48 years ago and as an 11 year old interested in the countryside it was idyllic

So when I returned last weekend, I was really pleased to see that essential nature hasn't changed, admittedly there are now toilets (only chemical toilet disposal all those years ago), showers and all that you'd expect on a modern campsite.

The pitches are well spaced and the facilities clean and never seemed busy (even though the site was fully booked)

The location is great for both the New Forest and Beaches at Mudeford, Highcliffe and New Milton, Bournemouth is an easy drive as is Lymington so location is great

Can't really fault it, long may it continue

 We spent 5 nights on this site in a party of 3 adults and 2 children. Access is 'interesting' because it is not signposted off 2 of the village approach roads. The site is flat, open and well laid out with hard standings and grass areas for awnings, etc. There are also a couple of grassed tent fields.

There are 3 amenity blocks, but only one houses showers. 3 showers 'each side' does not seem adequate, but none of our party had to queue. Blocks were cleaned regularly but some of the clientele made that an uphill task.

Bransgore village has a Co-op and a handful of shops and pubs.

The Somerton area of Christchurch is only a 10 minute drive away and boasts Sainsbury's, Aldi and Lidl as well as a couple of chain restaurants eg Toby Carvery, Beefeater, etc.

All the delights of the New Forest are a short drive away with Burley and Brockenhurst particular favourites. Lymington, Ringwood and Christchurch are also within easy reach and a party on a neighbouring pitch were keen to tell us about a train outing they'd had to Poole from nearby Hinton Admiral station.

The site has much to commend it

 Lets deal with other peoples minus points first. One, if it is windy and wet you may also get wet in the washing up area as the roof needs to be larger, apart from that it does what it says on the tin. Two, plane noise, scarcely noticed it, it may vary with the wind direction.

The site is otherwise quiet with fairly large pitches. The hard standing pitches are literally that, concrete with grass either side for awnings, just position the caravan or vehicle to the best side.

We had terrible rain one night for hours and the site proved to be well draining, the grass was wet not sodden and there were few paddles. Staff proved very helpful including allowing us to ring at the house to get access to our freezer blocks.

Toilets and showers were of a good standard and clean, it is a little quaint these days to pull chains for a cistern. The usual push button shower controls gave a sensible time lapse.

The local pub is The Three Tuns, the evening menu was interesting/unusual not 'Pub Grub' it depends what you want. Their home made burger was a miss from us.

The next nearest pub is The Crown a more typical menu fair quality. Neither offers good value.

Reviewer: Sidde66 2 reviews from this member

 Just returned from this beautiful site once more. This is a really pleasant site, neat, clean & tidy. Bad behaviour isn't tolerated.

We like the fact that it's 'Dog free' as the children feel safe. Our only criticism is that there should be better washing up facilities-we've been coming to the site for 12 years and these facilities have never been updated.

There's a lovely room with washing machine, ironing facilities etc-it would be great to see part of this room converted into a washing up area.

Toilets & showers are kept super clean & plenty of hot water, good sized pitches and very peaceful. See you next year!

Reviewer: Nessa1915 1 review from this member

 Just spent a weekend here, lovely site, good sized pitches, lovely surroundings overlooking fields with cows and horses. Showers spacious and clean.

The owners very accommodating and cheerful and allowed us to have a late stay at no extra cost. Lots of nice walks and lucky that the weather was good, so enjoyed a relaxing weekend.

Nice short walk to the Three Tuns pub which serves good food and a good selection of beers and wine, enjoyed in their pleasant beer garden.

All in all, a very nice site which we will be going back to again. Thoroughly recommend.
