Small, family-run camping in the New Forest National Park, brought about by popular demand

Just minutes from the M27, the motorway gives way to moorland, drivers reduce speed in homage to the grazing gardeners of the New Forest – the wild ponies – and time slows down in step with the traffic. Cue deep exhalation of city congestion and, ventilated by heather-perfumed air, one remarkably swift passage into the wilderness.

Such accessibility from the conurbations of southern England earns the location big accolades. Still, don’t expect to hurry through William the Conqueror’s former hunting ground; wild horses may have dragged you here, but they’re unlikely to budge from the road till they’ve had their fill.

Tom Charman’s grandmother bequeathed her family the pottery and farmhouse adjoining the field. For years, campers would turn up requesting a pitch, encouraging Tom and his cousins to run an honesty site: a sign at the gate would welcome arrivals and contributions were collected each morning.

Tom’s Field now has around 40 plots, managed by Tom and his wife Tina. Numbered pitches run parallel to the road, opposite another line of tents that overlook the moors. Here, parents sit outside their ever-expanding canvas constructions looking almost stunned by the sudden onset of relaxation. At the far end, beside a clutch of woody pitches, is The Copse, a favourite with couples.

You can walk for miles on the moors and explore villages by bike or on horseback. At night, campers laze around, barbecuing food. ‘Or the more adventurous,’ laughs Tina, ‘make the half-a-mile pilgrimage to the pub’.



There’s shower block (male and female), washing up sinks and a mobile shop. Woodgreen Community Shop visits every morning with freshly-baked croissants and lots more, while a pizza van usually visits one night each weekend. Firepits for hire and wood, kindling and charcoal are available to buy at reception. There is a freezer for ice packs or you can leave a deposit and borrow some.

Suitable For

Tents, campervans, dogs – yes. Caravans and motorhomes – no.


It’s ½ mile to Sandy Balls Holiday Park (08442 491193), home to all the extra amenities you might fancy (including a swimming pool, bike hire and children’s playgrounds). There are a number of good cycle routes running past the campsite. Bikes are generally considered the best way to make the most of the area. Keep your eyes peeled for wild ponies and deer or spot them more easily at local wildlife parks. It’s a ½-hour drive to the Beaulieu Estate (01590 614621), home to the National Motor Museum among other delights, and less to Paultons Family Theme Park (02380 814442), home to Peppa Pig World, and hugely popular with little ones.

Food & Drink

Visit The Cider Pantry (01425 402193) to sample and buy locally brewed cider or apple juice made ye-olde-worlde way. The Fighting Cocks (01425 652462) is a hop and a skip away with outdoor seating and piled-high plates of usual to unusual pub fare, such as New Forest faggots and mash and spicy New Orleans jambalaya.


Weekends from the end of June until around the end of the school summer holidays.

The Owner Says

Tom’s Field commands a stunning location close to the village of Godshill, 3 miles from the town of Fordingbridge and is open for weekends throughout the summer months. Godshill is a quiet village on the fringes of the New Forest  where ponies, donkey’s and cattle all wander freely. We boast direct access and fantastic views. Footpaths and cycle routes are literally on our door step. With just over 50 pitches the main field offers large perimeter pitches for families and small groups. Our copse area is exclusively for couples which offer smaller pitches and a quieter retreat. We are a small quiet campsite and therefore have a no music policy at all times and request that there is no noise after 11.30pm. We can only take individual bookings on line. Please call for advice if you are a small group.


30 pitches in the main family field and a further 10 or so in the adult-only field.

Wow fab location ! Exceptionally well run.

We arrived at this fab location and small site. It was eceptionally well run, and every effort had been made for a environmentally friendly stay. Just across the road the New Forest beckoned and fab walks. Fordingbridge town just down the road with fab park and River to paddle board or swim or just enjoy a picnic. Lots to do further a field too if there for more than a few days. Site showers and toilets kept to high standard and no music at night meant relaxing stay with Adult only field ir family friendly. Dogs welcome and we enjoyed taking ours. Really can't wait to return !

Well-run campsite with great facilities.

Lovely location. Great onsite facilities, nice, clean and easy for all the usual stuff - toilets, showers, washing up. Also nice to have access to charging points and fridge/freezer space. Easy reach of Fordingbridge and pub. We enjoyed nice campfires around the firepits that are available to rent. Very helpful staff (they sorted out our flat battery immediately!). Would definitely go again.

Such a stunning place to stay. The views are exceptional, the facilities were great and clean at all times. Pizza on the Saturday evening is a must, fresh stone baked. We will be booking again for next year and are looking forward to introducing another family to the site.

Excellent Safe Friendly

Stayed for three days, the staff are very friendly and helpful and are about all day. The site and facilities are clean and kept clean the whole time. The field is secure and out of site of the road, so I was happy to leave my stuff there and the site is safe for young ones to wonder about and play. The location is in a really nice spot and is a great base for hiking and cycling adventures, it is also a great location for star gazing, we were there during the Perseid meteor shower, we walked five mins away from the campsite and had a great view of the natural light show. There is a pizza van that visits and you can even have afternoon tea delivered to your tent. There is a pub a short walk away that serves food, you wont leave hungry after a meal there. We had a great stay at Toms field and would recommend it, we will definitely be camping there again.

Another happy stay

This was our second stay at Tom’s Field. The views, facilities, ease of getting to other places (we went to Moors Valley Park - which is great for kids, especially the Go Ape) is brilliant. We were excited to introduce our friends to the site this year. We have it a collective 9/10

Fell in love with this place

I LOVED the views. The kids loved spotting the wild deers and horses on the other side of the fence. It was really easy to find, showers and toilets were spotless, the lady in reception was really lovely. I can’t wait to return.

Clean, safe, green and friendly - will return again

I loved the location, beautiful views and despite being beside road it was very quiet. I felt very safe, it was enclosed so great for my child. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful - offered lots of advice and even offered some free camping kit. Will defo return.

Chilled site - perfect for kids and dogs

What a special place! Walking distance to a pub serving decent food to suit most tastes at fair pricing. Great new shower cubicles - all facilities kept super clean. Liked the marked out generous pitches, which helped with spacing. The campsite is by a road but its quiet-ish. Local shop provides tasty breakfast treat options 8-9 weekends; when we stayed pizza van supplied amazing pizza - also catering for GF. Brilliant reception staff - who care.

What another fantastic time we had at Tom’s field. Lovely spot in the adults field, lovely girl in reception and very’s our second visit and will be back again.

Lovely and clean showers and toilets friendly staff camp site kept really tidy. Beach only 35 mins away

A favourite spot

This was our second trip to Tom's field and we really love it. It's peaceful and wonderful to have an adults only area. Lovely surroundings and Fordingbridge is only a ten minute drive. Clean facilities and the mobile shop/bakery and pizza truck are great. Will definitely be back... If there's space!

Response from Tom's Field (New Forest)

We are so happy to have Woodgreen Community Shop coming again this year . Hope you can stay again thanks for being great guests 

Outstanding! Super clean, friendly

We had the most wonderful stay at Tom’s field ! The pitches are well spread out with stunning views and very secluded ! A short walk to an immaculately kept shower block with equally clean Porter loos ! The owners are on site and super friendly! Can’t wait to go back !!

Thanks John and Mandy its always lovely hosting such nice campers 

Relaxing family break

Lovely campsite, not too big and plenty of loos and showers for the size which were clean and well kept. Reception manned and everyone lovely and helpful. We stayed in one of Austin’s bell tents, friendly welcome and very helpful with any needs, tent well kept and made for a different family break for us! Would definitely stay again.

Outstanding, Friendly and Welcoming by all

Outstanding family run campsite, always welcomed with a friendly face.. Tom, Tina and Izzy are just lovely and go out if their way to accommodate any needs. Views are amazing and the campsite is clean and tidy always, pitches are large and spacious, toilets and showers are cleaned throughout the day and hand sanitizer available throughout the site.. we absolutely love coming here, we bring our grandchildren too who love playing on the site and seeing the horses behind the field and it's nice to know they are in a friendly safe environment...couldn't recommended the site enough, we will most definitely be back again this year 😊

Lovely, friendly site - will come back again

We had 3 nights here in early September and it was lovely. The pitches are an excellent size. There was plenty of hand sanitiser everywhere and the facilities were really clean. The pizza van on the Saturday was a lovely touch - especially as it had an option for vegans! We also like that you could rent a fire pit. Most importantly, the lady that was working there, Izzy, was very friendly and helpful to us (and she recommended a good pub - the Horse and Groom in Woodgreen!). Definitely a site we would return to.

Lovely, clean, friendly campsite

Exceptionally well managed campsite, very friendly and clean. Although very busy was not noisy at all with everyone adhering to the quiet zone rules. Pleasure to pitch here, we will most definitely return.

Perfect ;)

Everything there was great. Large slots, clean showers and toilets, perfect location. Pizza from stone stove was delicious. Definitely we will back.

Lovely location and great campsite

We camped for three night on a pitch near road, when i arrived i did think traffic might keep us up but no traffic overnight and only woken by a cow : ) Toliets and showers very clean, lots of hand sanitizer and signs to remind you to clean hands. We were treated to some beutifull sunsets the area is stunning and some great walks. I would highly recomend its a great campsite we loved it : )

Relaxed & memorable

Camp site size wasn’t too far to walk to reception. Plenty of things going on and advertised, pizza van, chip van on site. Clean toilets & showers. All staff were friendly. Apparently normally have a van at 8am with supplies & croissants but because if covid. Being allowed fire pits were great as we brought our wood as well. Nice walk to the first pub .20 mins. Donkeys & ponies everywhere and ice creams vans. Nice walks around the outside of the camp. Will book again.

Flat field with scenic views ans essential amenities

The owners/staff of the field are informative and helpful. I had a flat tyre Tom pumped it up meaning we could go on our bike ride! Saved the day. The have a fridge and freezers on site to keep food and drinks cold. Plot was plenty big enough.
Aug 31, 2020 by Kel

Excellent Site

Loved the site, shocked and happy about all the amenities included especially with the option to have a fire pit/BBQ hire. Impressed with all the COVID safe procedures, especially the shower and toilet blocks. We were in the couples/adults only area and liked that they separated it from family’s. The staff were so friendly and helpful, seem to be willing to go above and beyond. Good area with nice surroundings, walking distance to the nearest pub. 100% would recommend to anyone!

Practically Perfect in Every Way!

This site is a little slice of camping heaven. If you’re looking for a friendly, peaceful site where you can toast marshmallows on the campfire, enjoy beautiful views, great walking/biking trails with a local pub in walking distance, then this is the place for you. As always, Tina, Tom and Izzy were the perfect hosts. They are genuinely lovely people who are always happy to help or suggest local activities. They’re managing the pandemic exceptionally well. The already roomy pitches are spaced further apart, there are plenty of hand sanitiser stations and the extra facilities are cleaned/sanitised regularly. My family and pooch could not have been made more welcome - we will definitely be back. Tina, Tom and Izzy (not forgetting Prudence and Holly the dogs!) thank you for having us!

Fantastic, relaxed campsite

From the moment we arrived, to when we left - we felt so relaxed and safe and welcome at Tom's Field. Izzy welcomed us and showed us our pitch which was spacious and had wonderful views. The toilets and showers were kept clean and well maintained as well as the washing areas. Tom and his wife Tina were very friendly and approachable and offered to freeze our ice blocks free of charge. The whole camping experience at Tom's Field during the pandemic was safe and wholeheartedly enjoyed. Thank you for making our camping experience so enjoyable.

This is our second summer camping at Tom’s Field and it was equally good this year. Beautiful setting and views! Tom, Tina & Izzy are friendly, helpful hosts. And this year they have done a brilliant job at running the campsite during the pandemic with exceptional hygiene and easy opportunities to remain socially distanced and safe but also relaxed. We highly recommend this campsite and we are sure to visit again. Thanks Tom & Tina

Super campsite

Camped here for three nights with friends. Generous pitch sizes, beautiful views and fantastic location. Staff are friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the peace with the no music rule! Beautiful area with lots to do, our stay was over a very hot weekend but we kept cool by enjoying the streams and rivers nearby. I'm sure we will return.

Great camping location

Great location just on the edge of the New Forest, a delight to be surrounded by such beauty. The campsite arrival process and well thought through, felt safe and clear. We camped at the far end in the adult's wooded section, definitely the right choice for us. Great to able to hire fire bowls to have a full camping experience, and the loo's and showers were clean and clearly spaced and defined. Although the site is next to a road the traffic noise wasn't really a problem overnight.

Gorgeous location - pony heaven!

We had a great stay here.. the site is a great location right in the middle of walking trails and amazing views across the forest to watch the sunset. The facilities are basic but were really clean, pitches are a generous size and well spaced out. The owners are so friendly and helpful, the fire pits and visits from the ice cream van and pizza oven were lovely touches. This is a great site for watching the New Forest Ponies too.. they are everywhere as soon as you leave the gate, along with donkeys and cows. We will definitely be back!

superbly peaceful and stunning

We had an amazing few days - peaceful and lovely and so well organised. We had a pitch in the copse. Beautiful walks from the gate - very dog friendly and very safe!

Best fun ever

We had such a lovely time, the views are breathtaking and loved seeing all the animals running around free on the roads. The campsite was perfect, clean, well spacious for the kids to run around, toilets and shower blocks were well looked after and the staff were super friendly and helpful. We had a lovely chat with Tom who has done a fantastic job with his site. Tom's member of staff was so sweet, she was super helpful with helping us choose where best to go and nothing was too much when we asked her for help, she was very bubbly and want to say a massive thank you for helping us with things. I definitely recommend this site, not only do you have clean facilities, friendly staff, amazing views but everything is within walking distance. Would recommend going for a pub lunch or dinner to the fighting cocks, the donkeys and horse are all roaming around and my little girl loved it. Massive thank you Tom xx

Lovely site with great views

A few changed have been made to ensure that the site is Covid ready. More toilet and shower blocks have been hired. Not a fan of portaloos but there was rarely a queue for the flushing one. Pitches are allocated and have been made larger. There isn't a large area for the children to play on site but the Godshill cricket pitch is a very short walk and there were lots of baby donkeys to watch. We stayed for 3 nights but could easily have stayed longer. When we left we saw lots of children playing in the river at Fordingbridge which looked fun. The play area in Sandy Balls was good too!

Excellent quiet and clean campsite

Friendly and helpful reception. Well-thought-out adaptations for the coronavirus. Visible cleaning of showers and toilet facilities. The showers were fantastic! Quiet campsite, perfect for children. Great access to the New Forest and beyond. Good walks/cycling. Great options for evening meals - any time I don't have to cook is a win! I have already recommended this campsite to friends, and will be booking again myself. Thank you for a brilliant stay.

Great for small kids

What a find! We're newbie campers. Two adults 3 kids under 6. And this was ideal! Big enough for the kids to feel independent, small enough not to worry they'll get lost. Covid arrangements are really good. Shower and toilets clean and well stocked. Owners are WONDERFUL! Friendly, helpful, and fun. We had a rainy day for the main day but still had fun at nearby Avon Heath Play area and then short pony ride at nearby stables. Definitely recommend staying here.

Great spot, clean facilities, helpful team

Views are lovely. We especially enjoyed the deer, horses and bats! Spacious site with decent sized pitches. No music allowed and generally everyone stuck to the noise restrictions. The ladies in reception were very helpful and accommodating. It felt safe for kids and Was a super relaxing break. There was a little road noise but the hedges are high so it feels private. As the site is small it’s not too busy and has good vibes!

Wonderful break

Stunning views, very clean good facilities and great sized pitches. Covid restrictions have been well applied. Only downside is we had a sloped pitch which meant our son had particular issue with sleeping. It wouldn't stop us staying again though. We did lots of walking and cycling, the New Forest is very quiet for the time of year so perfect for a socially distanced break. Godshill has a herd of Donkeys with young which the kids loved. Fordingbridge has a shallow river perfect for kids to enjoy. I'm sure we'll be back!

Wonderful break

Stunning views, great, very clean facilities, really good sized pitches. Covid restrictions dealt with very well. Only negative is the pitches on the left are on a slope which made it hard for my son in particular to sleep. It wouldn't stop us staying again though. Godshill has a herd of donkeys with plenty of young which the kids loved! We cycled and walked lots, for the time of year the New Forest was quiet, perfect for a socially distanced break! If planning meals out make sure pubs are open and some pubs you need to book ahead.

Beautiful chilled camp out in the heart of the New Forest - Bliss!

Simple but well appointed camp site right in the heart of the Forest. Great location for biking, hiking and river swims. Laid back atmosphere; fires and dogs welcome. Ice cream van and fish and chip van visit on the weekends. Tom and Tina could not be more welcoming. I don't think I could ask for more!

Perfect little campsite

Lovely small site. Tom and Tina are the perfect campsite hosts. Great location, lovey views. Social distancing has been well thought through and implemented. An annual favourite!!!

Living our best life outdoors

Not having been to Tom’s Field before and with the added concerns around Covid, we didn’t know what to expect. All our worries were allayed immediately on arrival. We had such a warm welcome from Tina, no riot act was read to us, just pointed in the right direction of our serene copse pitch. Pitches were larger than normal due to isolation but we could see that an ‘original’ pitch was also a good size for campervan and awning. We could have a fire in an off the ground pit at night which is such a must wherever we can, that’s what real camping is all about.Facilities were great with allocated shower times due to isolation but why campsites don’t do this all the time is beyond me... it works a treat!! A local fish and chip van arrived in the evening... we collected our pre orders... fabulous! With walks a plenty, cycle routes everywhere, a pub ‘The fighting cocks’ a 15 minute walk away... what more could you ask for. Tom and Tina were brilliant hosts, letting everyone get on and enjoy themselves... we had already booked a return trip within 15 minutes of arriving. Looking forward to our next trip with our friends this time... just sharing the love!

Welcoming site for all all!

Thank you Tom and Tina for a most enjoyable stay! We all loved the site, there was loads of space for all the children to run around and play and enough space for the adults to cook and hang out around the fire pits. We walked through the beautiful forest to Woodgreen and had lunch at the local pub. The site is well looked after with clean facilities. There is a well stocked shop in the mornings (excellent pastries) and a fish and chip van on Saturday nights! It was a great stay. Thank you.

Great for young families!

We visit Tom's field every year. It's family friendly atmosphere and fab facilities make it a great weekend escape. Our boys love the tyre swing and we love that they can explore the site and have their own adventures (whilst always being in our line of sight) Highly recommended.

Beautiful location and friendly campsite

We had a great weekend camping at Tom's Field. The location is lovely and a great base to explore the New Forest. The site is great - open, level, marked out but spacious pitches. The toilet block was always clean we hardly ever needed to wait. There is a washing up area with cloths and washing liquid provided. We were provided with a bag to put our recycling in - it often seems hard to recycle when camping so this was good to see. We bought our own fire pit but you could hire one, and buy wood on site. There was a freezer to re-freeze your own ice pack or the option to hire one. There was a mobile shop which visited each morning and we bought Pizza from the van which came on Saturday evening. The site felt safe and friendly and there was minimal noise. A perfect site for us - we hope to return and have already recommended it to friends.

Small friendly clean campsite

We really enjoyed our stay in Tom's field. We stayed in the adult only area with our dog. It is very pretty with trees dotted about and a lovely view of the forest quiet and the added bonus of no music policy. The campsite toilets and showers are very clean all thanks go to Tina and Tom for this. The pop up shop and the visiting pizza pig and fish and chips van were great. The ice cream van visit was an added bonus on a hot evening. The added extras like soap, washing up liquid and cloths is a lovely idea. Tina and Tom do take pride in their campsite and it shows as it is such a nice clean campsite.They are so friendly and nothing is too much. we had a fantastic camping experience here and will go again very soon!!

Beautiful, honest and welcoming place

This campsite is in as picturesque a location as the description says, but what really makes staying here an experience is the owners. Tom and Tina are very sincere and lovely people. They have put a lot of thought into making the place run smoothly for everyone and it shows. Our car broke down and Tom gave us a lift into Salisbury while Tina advised on buses to get back. That’s the sort of people they are and that’s why we felt so comfortable and happy there.

Small, friendly, dogs allowed

Had a great stay. The owners are very friendly and helpful and clearly take pride in running a happy, well-kempt campground. The site in general and and the shower/toilets in particular are kept pristine. We stayed in the adult area, which is prettier and more wooded than the main families area, but be aware you can still hear the children (many of whom find the 'grown ups only' idea quite intriguing), that said it remains relatively tranquil. I especially appreciated the absence of music (nothing worse than a cacophany of other peoples music), the presence of dogs, and the visit from the fish and chip van.

Fantastic campsite in a perfect location

Tom’s Field is a fantastic campsite, perfectly located in the New Forest. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They keep the site spotlessly clean. Good sized pitches. Beautiful views. Pop up shop plus pizza/fish and chips. Cycling/walking on the doorstep. We’ll definitely return!

Great little campsite

Booked a weekend for 2 mums and our 4 kids. The site is small but perfect for letting our kids(3.5, 4, 2x6.5) have a little more independence. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean, although we were furthest from them (but someone has to be). The campsite was fully booked but didn't seem overcrowded. The owners were let down by their pizza van (apparently not the one they normally use) but were very apologetic and provided menus for nearby takeaways so we got our pizza anyway. Would definitely go back and recommend to people looking for a simple weekend camping experience in the New forest

Just amazing

We booked to stay at Toms Field because it was close to where we wanted to be for an event but as it turned out the campsite was the event! The owners are an absolute delight and make you feel so welcome. Nothing is too much trouble. Our two young children made an army of friends within minutes of arriving and the child friendly atmosphere in the family section made it all so relaxing. Never have i known the facilities to be kept so clean and the morning shop was reasonably priced and very well stocked. In short its just an amazing site run by people who quite clearly care about what they do. we didn't want to leave and will definitely be back.

We have been to the field now for holidays every year for the last few years and I have to say that it is just fantastic to chill it's no noise policy appeals just to be able to listen to nature at it best . The campsite is well run by Tom and Tina and nothing is too much trouble .we get the croissants and locally produce from the farm shop just delicious and good value . The shower block is always cleaned and the water is lovely and warm and always has soap and toilet roll as it is chechecked regularly . We love the fact we can hire a fire pit and there is coals and wood in the store to re stock . Having a freezer to re ice blocks is great too . I can't say enough good things about this field and we wouldn't go anywhere else .

Authentic, friendly and well-run

Second year staying here on the 2nd Bank Holiday weekend in May. We were Dads & Sons camping and this provides a great spot to do it. I like the scale, friendliness and simple rules of this place and Tom & Tina are welcoming hosts. I was impressed they remembered us from last year - a personal touch. This is good jumping off point for many outdoor activities and Moors Valley Park is a particularly well-run adventure park (they have a Go Ape facility). Definitely would recommend and will be going again!

Good for Beginners

+ Kids love it, good non-profit making shop each morning, great views, good walks. Woodgreen especially, The Horse & Groom pub, very nice.

- Very regimental, you get told where to pitch and the border lines are burnt into the grass for your plot. Too expensive, for a narrow field - bit of a free for all, kids everywhere! The toilet block is too small (lots of queuing at peak times) for this site and dated, dishwashing facilities were always occupied, day and night. I don't want to shower 6" away from a stranger who's on the toilet! Pizza's, well you'll place your order and wait, over 2 hours (2h35m) to be precise, so a lot of frustrated parents feeding their children gone 9pm. Not particularly welcoming, we won't be returning.

A room with a view

We loved this campsite and have returned for the second time. Kids had a great time playing in the fresh air and toasting marshmallows over the fire. Fire pits can be hired and there is wood for sale too. If you want to sit round a fire, listening to horses munching on the grass and the birds singing in the valley below, then this is the perfect place. Friendly owners and simple but clean facilities make this a great weekend retreat. Don't go if you want to get really drunk, fall in the fire, have a drunken argument with your husband/ wife make lots of noise, play loud music or irritate everyone else on the campsite- this sort of person doesn't camp here thankfully.

Tina and Tom are so very helpful and really make you feel at home. The facilities are clean, showers were always hot.

Fire pits are available on request and Tina went out of her way to make sure we had the best stay. We could have stayed a lot longer, Thank you!

Peaceful and fun!

Tina and Tom run a super small campsite with just 50 pitches.  There are super views and ponies are just over the hedge.  It's a great safe place for children to run around.  You can walk straight onto the heath. The mobile shop that arrives has a great selection of pastries, local produce, papers etc.  An ice cream van comes in the evening too! The showers and loos are in really good condition, with lots of hot water.  Washing up sinks even come with cloths/brushes and washing up liquid.  We've just booked our 3rd visit and can highly recommend it.

Fantastic campsite! We visited Tom's Field with our 3 children, our dog and some friends. Beautifully maintained, spotless toilets & showers, even washing-up liquid and brushes provided for washing up. Full but never felt crowded, lovely family feel. Gator truck rides in exchange for picking up litter were a massive hit with the kids. Thank you Tom & Tina we'll be back next year.

A Great Weekend Retreat

My boyfriend and I booked a last minute weekend here and had an amazing time. We were in the copse which was for couples and adults only. It was a secluded spot, nestled in the forest with spectacular views. The morning shop with fresh pastries, milk, papers etc was a welcome treat. The facilities were also very good and we were able to hire a fire pit. Would definitely recommend. The top field was suitable for families and larger tents. The owners were very welcoming and helpful seeing as I emailed at 9pm on a Thursday eve. Thanks for a lovely, impromptu stay!

One of the UK's best small sites

We love this site and have returned time and time again - Tom and Tina are lovely, the site itself is small but perfectly formed and our kids love it - you really couldn't ask for more!!
