About Lepe Beach Campsite

Suitable For

Tents only, families, friends, couples, solo campers – yes. Caravans, campervans, motorhomes, twin axle vehicles, large single-sex groups, dogs – no.


Just 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 & Drink

It'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.

Lovely clean and well located site

Really impressed by the staff here and how hard they worked to keep the facilities beautifully clean and well stocked. Felt very covid protected. They worked really hard. Site is a great location, short walk to the lovely beach and very private. Flat pitches and soft ground with plenty of space between tents. Showers were excellent and all facilities were good (even the porta loos were kept clean until the last night). Only thing that would have been useful was mobile phone charging service as needed mine for work. Loved hiring a fire pit and being able to have open fires. All in all an excellent bank holiday break.

Great campsite

Campsite was great and toilets/showers were clean (despite muddy floors which can’t be helped). Great location and amazing view of the sea from our tent.

Friendly staff

Great position with easy walk to beach. Great staff, warning drivers to slow down if seen to be to fast. I like the fact it’s tents only (campers are the friendliest). Beach may not be as pretty as some but still great with views of Isle of Wight. Fire pit makes for a good evening sit round.

Lovely site, high levels of cleanliness

From the first minute the campsite was a fantastic experience. Great staff who were all really helpful and polite and lots of space to pitch. The short walk to the beach was really good and the toilets and showers were regularly cleaned to a high standard. Just ensure you pack rock pegs as the ground is stoney after about an inch!

Location 5* Site 4*

Amazing though very exposed (bring windbreaks!) location 2 minutes walk from beach which is excellent for adults and older children. Strong currents and gets deep quickly so not ideal for young kids. Fall asleap listening to the sound of the sea and also lovely cycle rides and pubs close by as well as Lepe Coutry park with its café. Site team very helpful even loaning me jump leads when needed. Did feel like lots of rules but I guess that it is necessary to keep us all safe in the time of COVID. Thanks Lepe beach team!

Getting There

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.
