About Lepe Beach Campsite
Suitable ForTents only, families, friends, couples, solo campers – yes. Caravans, campervans, motorhomes, twin axle vehicles, large single-sex groups, dogs – no.
NearbyJust the other side of the hedge/fence, Lepe Country Park has a children's play area and there is a picnic space with tables – a nice spot to enjoy the view if you're lunching at the campsite. It's a 150-yard stroll down to sandy Lepe Beach, while, 100 yards in the opposite direction there is also a nature reserve. Venture inland to chug on a steam train through the vibrant colours of Exbury Gardens (023 8089 1203; see also Food & Drink) or a little further to the renowned ship building village of Bucklers Hard, now a popular tourist stop. It's 7 miles to Beaulieu, home to the National Motor Museum (01590 612345) but also a lovely village to explore in its own right. Families can also take refuge in Paultons Park (023 8081 4442) – a theme park (home to Peppa Pig World) 25 minute's away.
Food & DrinkIt's 2 miles to Langley where there is a small supermarket, pubs, takeaway food and a cash-point (only cash is accepted for most things at the campsite). For a daytime treat, though, drive the 3 miles to Exbury Gardens (023 8089 1203) – expansive woodland gardens with abundant rhododendrons and azaleas plus steam train rides in high season – where Mr Eddie's Tea Rooms (023 8089 8737) offers tasty cakes and treats.
Lepe Beach Campsite is located at Lepe Beach Campsite, Lepe Road, Southampton, Hampshire SO45 1AD
From Southampton follow the A362 south, continue as it becomes the Hythe By Pass and then the A362 again. After a while you will begin to see brown tourist sign for Lepe Country Park. Where the A362 ends, at a roundabout on the edge of Holbury, take the second exit (with a brown tourist sign) and continue on this road fora further 3 miles. The campsite is next to the Lepe Country Park car park, so if you follow the signs it’s tough to go wrong. During the school holidays there is a direct, hourly Beach Bus service to Lepe Beach from Beaulieu and Lymington.
