Wonderful site in a beautiful location
Great site, flat, big pitches, communal kitchen, coffee, pizzas, fires. Good noise policy so makes for a happy camp. Take your bikes so amazing walks and cycles on your doorstep.
Fun but busier and noisier than anticipated
We booked a 5 night stay at Harry’s field and stayed for 4. Friendly site in beautiful surroundings with helpful staff. We had a great time but it wasn’t quite what I anticipated. Having looked at a few camping sites in the area we chose Harry’s field because they specifically specify that they don’t accommodate large groups and had plenty of space between pitches. Having a disabled child who struggles with noise and is immunosuppressed, space and a peaceful environment was specifically important to us. For the couple of days we were fortunate in that the camp site was not busy and largely frequented by small family groups but by the weekend the site was packed and we were surrounded by larger groups who by the very nature of having 5 tents worth of families were quite loud and took over quite a lot of space. Despite the loud groups the noise did die down around 11ish with the occasional slamming of car doors into the wee hours. My child had a great time making friends and the facilities were fine (although the soap in the loo’s ran out and wasn't replaced for a number of hours which isn’t so good in a pandemic). The noisy groups did get a bit much for us in the end and we decided to leave a night earlier as our son needed a bit of quiet time. I would book again but for a shorter time and In the knowledge that there’s not much space at all between pitches and groups are the norm rather than the exception. Probably a good shout if you are going mid week as a small family group for peace and quiet but be prepared for more of a vibrant atmosphere if you are going at the weekend.
Friendly and Relaxed
We have been camping at Harry's Field for five years now, and always love returning to this small, friendly site, right in the heart of the New Forest. The pitches are a great size and all of the facilities are only a short walk away. The toilets and showers are clean / warm; the washing up area has hot running water and the small shop is good for essentials. The pizza oven on a Saturday night is also always a hit! We would always recommend this site to others.
Friendly, good facilities and fab location
Just spent the bank holiday weekend here, and loved it. Wonderful setting with easy walks to explore local area from the camp gate, lovely pub serving food right next door and only half an hour to the coast if you want to explore further afield. On-site good facilities with clean wash rooms, hot showers, fire pits and the all important morning coffee! Friendly team for arrival and the shop, all you need for a fun and easy camp.
Friendly camp site in a great location the beautiful newForest
Fantastic and friendly campsite in a stunning location. The site is friendly and welcoming we had a wonderful trip
Nice but very crowded
The reception was well manned and staff were helpful and available. Toilets, showers small shop and fire pits for sale all good, as was the fact it was right next to a nice pub. I was less keen on having a football being kicked at the tent (and us) on regular occasion - the campsite seemed very full, there was no nearby play area and so kids are playing where they can.
Lovely site, friendly people and good location. Decent facilities that were cleaned regularly. One star off just because it was very pricey at £135ish for 3 nights for a basic site- but a lovely basic site done well.
Easy going, convenient and great for the family
We have recently come back from a very relaxing stay at Harry's field. We have stayed in the area before and this is definately the best in terms of location on a relatively quiet road and very near the Forest itself with beautiful walks and scenery. The site itself was great for a family, with a very warm and safe atmosphere. Our children enjoyed playing with other chidren there which was an indication of the friendly environment. The staff at Harry's are friendly but let you get on with things and none of that officious behaviour you get with some campsites. The only negative was the toilets can get busy at key points in the day but in fairness they were kept very clean. A kettle and lots of charing points were a real bonus and alongside pop up pizza and Indian food nights and the pub next door it was a very convenient spot.
Nice site, but lacking in some areas.
We recently visited this site and it is a very nice flat field. Pitches are a good size and it's very family friendly with lots of space for kids and adults to run about. No noise after about 10pm apart from a braying donkey or two. The only downside is that it's a bit rough around the edges. The description on the site makes it sound like they have loads of clean flushing loos, when in fact there are only two, (plus one urinal) for all the men and three for the ladies. There are two separate flushing loos for families. For the size of the site, this just isn't enough and by mid morning they were pretty disgusting and you had to wait a bit. They were cleaned regularly, but not enough for the amount of people using them. Each loo had a very small sink too, good enough for only washing your hands, with only one large single sink outside if you wanted to wash teeth or your face. Showers were very powerful and hot, which was good, but you couldn't adjust the temperature and were, again, a little unkempt and tired. There was a decent washing up area with one double sink, but lots of bowls and space to clean plates etc. A small shop sold coffee and ice creams but it wasn't open until mid morning. Outside of this is a small courtyard with some ropey old seats to sit on, and again it's just a bit tired and messy. The thought was obviously there but the execution was just a bit lacklustre. There was lots of soap and hand sanitiser around which was good. All in all, a nice site, and recommended, but don't get drawn into the "cool camping" descriptions and hype.
Great family friendly campsite
Harry’s field had a great family friendly feel. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We loved the pizza made on site and the campsite is in a great location, we’d definitely stay again.
Great first time camping
This was our first time camping with 3 children and we were very happy! The staff were very friendly and helpful. There were flushing toilets, clean showers and tea and coffee facilities. There are drinking water taps in various places around the field too. The pitches were large and there was space for the children to play too. Ice cream and strawberries and cream were a bonus! A great experience for all of us and we will be coming back soon!
Wonderful stay, as always
Vivien and her team really know how to run a campsite ! Pitches are spacious, showers are lovely and hot and everyone is helpful and friendly. There are some nice quirky touches, like the sofa and comfy chairs in outdoor communal area. The fresh coffee is a welcome addition and we enjoyed pizza from Myrtel the Turtle. So many gorgeous walks to enjoy from the campsite - we can't wait to visit again !
Fabulous family friendly camping
A very relaxed friendly campsite, large grass pitches and a safe environment for children. Staff were helpful, facilities great and the visiting pizza oven was an added bonus!
Harry's Field is a beautiful campsite in an amazing location with genuine friendly. Thank you very much for your help Stuart.
Friendly, helpful, fun
A good field with reasonable shower and toilet facilities. A small shop selling drinks and a few bits and bobs (but NO EGGS!!!) lots of fire wood although confusion as to whether it's £10 a go or £5 a go. We were charged both. £10 is a bit steep for 5 logs we say. Helpful staff and special mention to the younger lady who was a great organiser and only too happy to help. Pub next door with OK food and some nice walking nearby. Lovely big flat pitches and we were chatting away into the night without any problem. All in all a lovely weekend, thank you.
Lovely laid back and friendly campsite
Really lovely campsite. Very relaxed family atmosphere, quiet at night, and the owners were friendly, helpful and present. The pitch was large and the facilities were good. The phone chargers and kettles were much appreciated. Beautiful spot near some lovely walks and very close to a pub. Perfect!
Great experience but some little changes could help!
Lovely little campsite and clearly well looked after. We stayed in a standard bell tent for what was to be our first glamping experience. Sadly, we felt that there could have been a little more for our money. Inside the Bell tent was the bare minimum. Double campbed with a piece of foam on top, a chair and a small table. Seeing the other slightly bigger tents with double beds, cooking equipment etc. left us feeling a little hard done by even though we know the bigger tents are almost double the price. The little shop, the pizza van and breakfast van were excellent, however for what you pay per night, you could get a decent hotel. If the tent had a proper bed and the necessary cooking equipment without bumping the price up........this would be first class. just an honest opinion. :0)
Response from Harry's Field
Thanks for your response Chris. It is tricky as the 5 and 6 meter luxury fully furnished bell tents (which aren't double the price by the way!) and the standard 4 meter bell tent that you booked, are in the same area and it can lead one to look at facilities that the luxury bells have and wonder if you'd have preferred that option instead.
Our prices are very much in line with other Glamping facilities in the area.
The 4m standard bell tents do come with a double camp bed, memory foam topper, rugs and a table and chair, bunting and solar fairy lights, plus outside tables and chairs, and a sun awning if one was requested. The luxury bells have proper double beds and mattresses and this is obviously something that is taken in to consideration when people are booking. We don't provide cooking facilities for the standard bells and many of our glampers bring their own extras with them when booking a standard bell. You would have also had use of the shared kitchen and communal areas and I am so pleased you enjoyed the delicious pizzas, breakfasts and our own Barista. And thank you for complimenting us on our well looked after lovely little campsite. I wish you all the best, Vivien and family.
Woohoo the best yet!
This was my last camping trip this summer with my little niece of 3 and we had the best two days ever! I have camped all around the new forest this summer trying out different sites and this one topped the lot! Talk about save the best till last! Donkeys, jacket potatoes, campfires, gorgeous nearby walks and to top it a pub next door that did takeaways! Look out Harry we're coming next year!
A lovely friendly busy campsite in a beautiful area
We visited Harry’s field as a couple, looking to just get back to basics for a few days. The site was mainly populated by families but this was nice for us, as we both have our own kids and we were happy to be in a family environment. There were a few other non family groups and I’d say this campsite caters to most types of camper, as long as you are happy to be quiet and respectful of your neighbours. The facilities were great with wood fired pizza and breakfast vans etc for when we felt a bit lazy. Fire baskets, great kitchen area, v flat site, pub practically next door, all good features, but probably the best thing about it is the friendly and helpful people who run it. Always on site and always warm and cheerful, they were so great at understanding what we wanted from our trip and at giving us the info to make it happen. And their lovely dog mr Fox (this is a v dog friendly place) was the cherry on top. This is the perfect spot to enjoy the new forest and we loved our little getaway. Thanks to Harry’s field for making it so easy.
Where do I start? Got there and was standing in the rain waiting for someone to come over and help. After 10 minutes I finally got advised where my pitch was, but that was literally it. Didn’t get told where anything was, had to find it out for ourselves. If you have kids then this will be good for you, if you don’t have kids and want to go for a fun, chilled weekend, this place is NOT for you. You are not allowed to play music, or laugh after 10:30pm - none or this was stated on the website when I booked, I’m guessing you’d have to dig deep down in the T&C’s (classic) an email was sent with this information the day before we went which I didn’t check as I didn’t think I needed to as it states on the website noise stops at 11. We played music out of our phone so quietly as we heard others playing music too - the manager came over and asked us to turn it off, which she had every right too and it was my mistake for not reading the email, however when I stated I could not find on the website where is stated no music the response I got was “why are you looking on the website, you should just listen to me” I then started to explain that I knew noise stops at 11pm but I didn’t know no music was allowed to which I was rudely interrupted by the manager saying “are you done now? You are just starting to repeat yourself” - disgusting customer service. The next day the other manager came over to tell us that WE need to apologise and the people staying next to us left because of our “bad language” (not one person came over and said ANYTHING about this) and they have to refund their money - what a load of RUBBISH because 1 hour after a new person was pitched up in that spot so they were leaving that day anyways. She said she heard our swearing, yet it states on the website foul language will NOT be tolerate and you’ll be kicked off the site - so if you heard us, why didn’t you say anything? At this point we just wanted to pack up and leave.
Family friendly and relaxing
Excellent family friendly site. Friendly and knowledgable team who were able to recommend local walks etc, handy to have the little shop for ice cream/ milk / bread etc, and electric kettle for communal use was a real treat! The facilities were small (3 toilets / showers in ladies) but cleaned regularly and there were 2 additional toilets for kids which was really helpful. We enjoyed the Hot Turtle Pizza Van which came Wednesday evening, and made use of the fire pits. Plenty of space around our pitch and we felt happy to let our 3 and 5 year old explore the field on their bikes and make friends. Dogs were all kept on leads, and other people friendly. Staff were great and proactive at contacting people who’s tents had struggled in the gales (which fortunately we survived). A great base to explore with lovely walks, plenty of wildlife but pretty hilly so perhaps not ideal for taking kids out for bike rides directly from the site. We enjoyed the Maize Maze and sunflower farm and paddling in Fordingbridge.
Very good short stay
Good facilities on site. Showers and toilets clean and tidy at all times. Friendly and informative staff. Great location for exploring the New forest as it is in the heart of the forest. Definitely go back again.
Lovely little get away
Harry's field is a well situated campsite in the middle of the New Forest, next to a pub with plenty of donkeys for the kids to enjoy. There was plenty nearby for our kids to do. On site, we really appreciated having a little Kitchen with kettle and washing up facilities. The toilets and showers were clean. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. I feel it was a bit pricey for what it was, but on the whole a good experience.
Lovely couple of days
We are just back from our first time at Harry’s Field and will definitely be returning. A very friendly greeting when we arrived, lovely clean toilets and showers and a fantastic pub next door! We really couldn’t have asked for anything more! See you next year!
Fantastic camp site for families
We stayed for 3 nights. The pitch was large and spread out well. The facilities were cleaned regularly and in good order. The location is perfect for walking, getting to other towns and there is a great pub right next door. The people who ran the site were really friendly and helpful and other campers were also really friendly. I would definitely stay again.
Great place to stay
Lovely friendly and enjoyable campsite. Friendly staff and great family atmosphere. Plenty of couples and family’s. Wishing a stones throw of local amenities.
Amazing. Lovely campsite with a festival feel.
We stayed for 2 nights at Harrys Field and absolutely loved it. It is smaller than other campsites we have stayed at but this made it nicer because we felt more relaxed about the kids (there was no play area for them to keep wandering off to). The location is fabulous, we saw wild deer, ponies and donkeys. On the first night there was a meteor shower, we pulled our mattress outside of our tent and just enjoyed looking up at the stars.
Our second visit to Harry’s Field was as delightful as the first! Come rain or shine, plenty to do and lovely places accessible on foot. Pub next door had a welcome shaded garden and chilled drinks. Food was wholesome. Campsite is simply perfect. With bigger pitches there was more space for younger, energetic legs to work off toasted marshmallows. Shhhh, don’t tell everyone!
Fun family camping site
I spent 4 days at Harry's camping site with my family and three children. They simply loved it and enjoyed the experience. Definitely safe and secure which allowed me the ability to relax whilst my children made friends, explored and ventured around the camp site. A warm welcoming reception, staff presence throughout and very helpful with day trip activities. Staff had great local knowledge and could advise on activities suited to family needs, comfort and ability. Would certainly visit again. Top tip - the confirmation e-mail with leaflet attached, spot on and informative.
Everything about this campsite was just perfect for us- pitches are spacious , toilets and showers spotless, set up was original and wonderfully quirky and a great pub next door! The owners of the site and the pub were super lovely and all Covid aware but without the need to over do it. Perfect! Very short but very relaxed. We will be back.
Perfect little family campsite
My husband, our 16 month old daughter, two small dogs and I just stayed for 2 nights Friday 7th August until Sunday the 9th. We took our new folding camper for its debut outing on the hottest weekend of the year! We arrived Friday evening and set up, as soon as we arrived we were greeted warmly. Saturday evening a mobile pizza oven company came to the campsite, we weren’t aware of it before hand so we didn’t use it as we had bought food and a bbq for our Dinner. But they looked amazing with a great choice of flavours and contactless payment! The shop at the campsite sold ice creams, eggs, cold drinks etc. There’s a communal area for washing up and charging electronics and phones etc (everyone just trusted to leave them as they charged and this didn’t seem to be a problem here). During our stay they also had fresh pastries and pain au chocolat in the morning! The facilities were all clean, plentiful and in good working order! No complaints there. The site itself was a small field but not over packed and well spaced out, so it felt just right and great for our toddler to explore without feeling anxious. It was predominantly a family site with a couple of little groups but everyone was very good and kept to the 11pm quiet rule! The Foresters Arms is the pub next door - we ate there and had a couple of drinks. The food was very fast but average, the drinks were nice but In our opinion not worth the £70 bill! For only 2 people (we took and pack lunch for our daughter) was not worth the money. If it was better food we wouldn’t have minded. There is another pub down the road called the fighting cocks which has better reviews. There was horses, cows and donkeys around the campsite and a short walk to streams and a small lake and amazing walks and views! Overall we loved our stay here and would definitely recommend and return!
Great first camping experience
We camped at Harry’s field last weekend with some friends. It was the first time any of us had camped before so we weren’t really sure what to expect, we had already asked for our pitches to be together which the campsite had done for us when we had arrived so we had a nice big corner plot for the 3 parties. The facilities were clean and tidy, lots of information re walks etc at reception and friendly staff. Great location For walking through the new forest, great pub next door serving pub food. Only downfall we thought was not enough toilets on site, only 3 ladies toilets for the whole site, my wife found herself queuing each time she went to the toilet. Overall great first experience. Thank you.
Harry’s Field is a pretty, homely campsite with great facilities and amenities. We stayed in the bell tents and the little touches like bunting, LED lights and picnic benches made it all the more special. The campsite has hot showers, electric points, freezers and a family who manage the sight and are knowledgeable of the local area. There are great walks very close by and a pub right next door! My boyfriend proposed to me outside our bell tent by candlelight and Harry’s Field will stay in our hearts forever. Couldn’t of wished for a better spot to get engaged.
We had a fantastic break away at Harry's Field. Great facilities, lovely family that run it are very knowledgeable of the local area and very kind. Great size pitches, clean facilities, lots of hot water and lovely feel. Will definitely go back again!
Extremely well run, A very friendly family run site Viv was very approachable and the perfect host All up to date with current legislation regarding distancing and sanitising. The surrounding area is stunning perfect for cycling, walking or just chilling!
Response from Harry's Field
Hi Darren. It is really good to hear your positive feed back. It is such a beautiful area isn't it and good to know that despite the current situation, you can get away and relax and stay safe and enjoy the great outdoors. Vivien and family
A very well run site, all with current safety guidelines, lots of hand sanitiser, but also very relaxed, lots of space in and beyond the pitches, Viv is very friendly and very approachable, the perfect host, this is our first visit to Harry’s field, we will be highly recommending this site and will definitely be back.
Super relaxing, chilled site with lovely atmosphere and great pub food on the doorstep!
Hot showers, clean bathrooms and good washing up areas all as you’d hope for. Friendly team including amazing help when emergency strikes (for example completely snapped critical tent pole which they took off and returned fixed thank goodness!!!)
Relaxed, friendly, plenty of space, Vivian & family kind and very welcoming
Loads of space as large pitches. Plenty of space for children and dogs to play. Relaxed and friendly. Pizza excellent on Saturday. Amazing walks, especially the tea room in Hyde. Spent my birthday here - lots of fun.
Felt so very relaxed
This was our first time camping and we couldn't have picked a better site! Harry's Field has brilliantly sized pitches, so we didn't feel we were sitting on top of our neighbours! Shower and toileting facilities were cleaned regularly and we didn't have to queue for the facilities once during our 3 night stay. With walks right on the doorstep and the location of the pub right next door, we didn't get in the car from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The firepits, croissants and pizzas are a lovely touch and we'll definately be back to experience them again!
Relaxing and friendly campsite
Friendly and helpful atmosphere, and the shared facilities were kept very clean. Beautiful location.
Response from Harry's Field
Thank you Michelle. I am very glad that you were able to enjoy your stay and relax in the beautiful New Forest! Thanks for your review. Vivien and family
An excellent campsite perfect for families
We stayed for 2 nights & our pitch was perfect, everyone was really friendly and helpful. They have excellent facilities, freezers for your freezer packs & ice cube bags. The pizzas served on Saturdays were excellent. We hired one of their fire bowls and that with the weather & a few beers we had a really relaxing time. It is set in a beautiful area, next to a very good pub & visited by some very relaxed donkeys (watch out for the little ones who like to sleep in the middle of the road). It's really easy to get to the coast for a few hours on the beach & some fish & chips. The showers & toilets were clean and it's quiet at night. We are definitely planning on going back.
Response from Harry's Field
Thank you Mark for your review. It is good to know you enjoyed your stay and I agree that we are in a beautiful area. Hope we see you again one day and enjoy the rest of your summer, Vivien
Family friendly - a hit!
We've just returned from a 3 night stay, with two other families, at Harry's Field. The campsite was a hit. In particular, the cleaniness of the toilets and showers and due care around CV-19, was reassuring. The owners have thought of everything - gate is closed, so good for safety; organised wash up areas; firepits; options to have croissants for breakfast and or oven pizza for dinner, if you don't want to cook; and friendliness, of staff. Other families all seemed nice and respected the same things we liked at Harry's Field.
Had the best weekend here. The team were so friendly, easy to talk to and relaxed. It was our first time camping with the puppy but the set up at Harry's Field is perfect. Nice big pitches, not too busy (even when it was practically full!), and lovely facilities. We even had firewood dropped off at our tent!!! Would 100% recommend Harry's Field if you're looking for somewhere chilled with a fun but relaxed atmosphere. We'll definitely be back :)
I can not fault this place. Clean toilets clean showers lovely surroundings we had a fantastic time
Response from Harry's Field
Thank you so much Holly. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your weekend, the area we are in is so beautiful isn't it and I am very glad you liked our new shower block! Hopefully see you again one day, The Sheriff family.
Owners are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble, happy to answer all our queries and give us directions to everywhere. Really nice atmosphere, flat field, good facilities and well organised in light of Covid cleaning etc. Clearly a lot of thought and planning had gone in to their reopening and it was much appreciated. Wood fire pizza on Saturday night was a bonus ... and another faultlessly organised system for ordering and collection, and they were delicious. Fresh pastries and milk arrived in the mornings and with pub right next door, the new forest donkeys at the gate and lovely cafe only 15 minutes walk away, there is no downside here. Would highly recommend.
A Perfect Camping Weekend
We have just returned from camping at Harry's Field on their opening weekend and it was brilliant. This is our second visit and they have managed to maintain such a lovely atmosphere on site, whilst also making it a safe environment to be in. The pitches were well spaced and very generous, and the new toilet and shower block was super. The family who run the site clearly love what they do and that really comes through in all the little touches and their general attitude. Our boys loved making friends with the other children camping around us and there was so much space for them all to play. We actually live very close by, but two nights at Harry's Field genuinely felt like a holiday away. Thank you and we will definitely be back again!
Lovely relaxing break
Clean toilets & showers, friendly helpful owners, great washing up facilities. Open fires, room for games, well spaced out pitches. The donkeys outside are just adorable!
A fantastic experience
A relaxed and chilled out camping experience. Although the facilities are basic they are more than adequate. Wood fired pizzas on site were brilliant and having a lib next door was also great. The owners were helpful from the start and we will definitely be returning.
Could not have picked a better spot!
The bacon, the new buddies, the best hosts in Britain, the belly laughs, the brilliant bike rides.... Believe me, Harry’s Field is the big dog’s barking ball’s! Loads of love guys and thanks for such a sociable and memorable weekend x
Lovely site in idyllic surroundings.
Thanks Vivien. We had a fab time here. Wonderful place for our extended family to enjoy beautiful walks, bike rides and picnics in a delightful part of the world. The wood fired pizzas on Saturday were delicious (and super efficient!) The proximity to the pub next door was a bonus, allowing a cheeky refreshing 'well earned' pint after an exhausting picnic! The vibe at the site was chilled and very family friendly. We loved it! The owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating! We will definitely be coming back! Thanks again. Phil, Kate... And the rest of 'Okefest'
Great location, super close to great walks and bike rides around the new forest. Fantastic facilities, including toilets, showers, washing up station, plugs for phone charging, pizza van and kids disco. Best part obviously being that you can have campfires! Can’t wait to return!
A relaxing rural treat.
This was our first attempt at camping; with a 3 year old and 5 year old the thought of basic amenities and potentially noisy neighbours had so far put us off. We needn't have worried - a stay in a Bell Tent at Harry's Field provided us with all we needed (and more) in a tranquil, spacious setting. I know hardened campers would sniff at the suggestion we were camping, when we were staying in such a luxurious set up, but it was still under canvas so counts as far as I'm concerned! The tent itself is gorgeous; decked out with a comfortable bed, side tables, chair, two extra beds, and plenty of cookware and utensils. The decor is very boutiquey shabby chic and it's just lovely inside the light and airy tent. Loads of space for the 4 of us, and outside a table and chairs, cooking stove and a huge field for the children to stretch their legs in. There were lots of lovely extra touches; flowers, copious spare blankets, hot water bottles, and even a fruit cake. And the amenities are all spotless and plentiful so there was no queing for the loo. Phew. We loved the visiting pizza oven on Saturday night, how hospitable our hosts the Sheriff family were, and the incredibly beautiful countryside we were able to explore. I really appreciated the peace and quiet - no music on the site from other campers - just the sound of kids having fun and early birds waking us up in the morning. We look forward to returning soon, and it'll be back to a Bell Tent as it was such an effortless treat we all enjoyed.
Cant wait to come back!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harrys. The site is so well run, probably the cleanest facilities on any camp site we have stayed on. The shared kitchen was so lovely and always enough washing up bowls, plenty of hot water and some where to charge the kids bloomin phones! The surrounding area is great, all the walks and cycle rides seem to start by the gate and there are ponies and donkeys all around the village. It is a small campsite, but we found there was enough room for the kids to spread out and we particularly loved having a campfire in the evening. The family that run it could not have been more friendly and willing to help and even helped me put the tent up as I forgot my poles! Thanks Harry and family, we will be back.
Festival feel with some nice touches but expensive and overcrowded
We booked Harry's Field for the bank holiday weekend: the welcome was really lovely, there is access to cycle paths just down the road, and the pub next door is fantastic (booking highly recommended if you want to eat). The pizza evening was also really appreciated. However: this is one of the most expensive campsites we have ever stayed at for the facilities on offer - on a par with sites we've stayed at in Switzerland for which we had a view of the Alps and electricity. The campsite is basically a field, with tightly packed pitches and not enough facilities for the number of people on site (for that weekend at least), which although gave the whole experience a festival feel, was not what we were after. Larger / better spaced out pitches and increased facilities, as well as a slightly lower pitch price would have made the experience better. That being said, we could not fault the hosts, who did provide a lovely welcome.
Friendly campsite; great location
Harry’s field was a lovely campsite next door to a pub serving good food and in a wonderful New Forest location. On Saturday night the pizza oven was a brilliant touch. Shop onsite and bathroom facilities were fab. Myself and three friends had a great time. We will no doubt be returning!!
Lovely field, friendly hosts and great facilities.
FABULOUS HOSTS MAKING THE BASICS INTO A FIRST CLASS STAY.
My husband, 7-year-old son and I stayed at Harry's field over the weekend of 17th Aug 2018. We cannot recommend this campsite enough. Vivian and Ian are tremendous hosts and cannot do enough for you. We forgot our plates and cutlery, not a problem as they were there to offer their own for our use. Great idea of the traveling pizza oven on Saturday evening, however, we had already arranged our dinner for that night, maybe next time. Clean showers with lovely flowing hot water with enough toilets for all campers on our weekend. As for the size of the pitches, we have a large 4 man tent and a 4x4 vehicle and had plenty of room. Yes, as more campers turned up we had less room for throwing the frisbee, however, there are acres and acres of woodland to explore. The owner's local knowledge makes a difference as you could get lost in the woodland, but with the help of a map and advise off we went exploring. All in all, a fantastic weekend on a great campsite with great hosts in a truly magical woodland. Thank you, Vivien and Ian. The Page Family.
The warmest of welcomes
Just home from a two night stay at Harry's Field. We arrived at the same time as a few other campers and whilst I could see Vivian (sp?) had her hands full briefing all the new arrivals, she gave each of us the warmest of welcomes. SUPER well organised campsite and faultless facilities (how many camp sites play records on a vintage record player next to the washing up area?! Or have a stone baked pizza night?!) Gorgeousness. Our son had a donkey-related accident (off site) and Vivian's lovely husband was so kind in getting us info for the nearest hospital straight away (our son is essentially fine, but very sore) and were so sweet to him on our return. Even making a special trip to our tents to check in on him and tempting him to eat something with the offer of an ice cream to cheer him up. A really special couple creating some camping magic :-)
Fantastic family campsite
How lovely to arrive at Harry's Field after a long drive and be welcomed by the Sheriff family! The site is well planned out and a lot of thought has gone into the facilities - we loved the fire pits, the kitchen area with kettles, tea and coffee and the hot showers. We enjoyed eating at the pub next door, the delivery of fresh croissants on Saturday morning and following one of the family's recommended walks in the New Forest. We would love to come back next year!
Great campsite, perfect facilities
Just spent the weekend at Harry’s field with a group of friends and had a great time. The campsite is smaller than others I have stayed on but the beauty of that is that nothing is too far away. The facilities are the best I have experienced- a choice of real toilets with sinks, hot water, soap and retro style mirrors and also portaloos which were super clean too. The shower blocks were also clean and easy to use. The nicest touch though has to be the kitchen area with tea, coffee and milk provided and kettles to use. They had plenty of washing up bowls so there weren’t any pointless queues waiting to wash up your stuff. The first night we ate in the pub next door then got pizza from the mobile van on Saturday. This was well thought out as you could pre order and choose the time slot for yours making it super easy on the day. Plus the pizzas were delicious! The Sherrif family were always around to help, chat and kept the place spotless which added to the experience. They also provided a map for a walk to go on and were very welcoming. I would definitely recommend staying here, we had a fantastic weekend at Harry’s Field!
Great location, friendly, well equipped
My sister and I have just enjoyed a weekend stay with our two kids. The site is in a good location, with local walks, donkeys roaming around outside and a pub serving good food next door. The site is very well equipped, with a shop, kitchen with tea making facilities and charging points, plus hot showers and flushing toilets. We are not seasoned campers but the owners were very helpful in answering all our questions. We took advantage of the fresh croissants in the morning and visiting mobile pizza oven in the evening. Good size pitches with space for games of footy etc. The kids absolutely loved it! A really good weekend, despite changeable weather. Would definitely recommend and would come back again. Thank you!
Perfect campsite for families
Really pleased we chose this site for a short family break. Friendly and helpful owners and a very picturesque spot with great facilities to make your camping trip just that little bit easier! The site included the following: a small farmshop, good washing-up area, complimentary tea and coffee (very welcome!), charging points, fire pits and ice blocks to hire and good shower and toilet facilities. We also loved the pizza night on Saturday evening - a welcome night off and absolutely delicious pizzas! Would definitely recommend!
Exactly the right type of camping
Harry's Field is exactly the right sort of camping. Its relatively small so you don't feel over crowded - it has all the right amenities and the owners simply can't do enough to please - which is a perfect combination. We will definitely be returning if only to see what a morning is like when it isn't raining...
Friendly welcome. Good size pitch. Offered help with set up (just me and 2 small kids). Fire pits and wood available. Tea making facilities. Great showers. Lovely fresh pizza on Saturday. Enjoyed a glass of wine and marshmallows with the lovely owners. Children were sad to leave. Will definitely come again.
We stayed at Harry's field with 3 other couples and a few children and I must say I was very impressed. Positives: Great hot high pressured showers, fires are allowed and fire bowls are available with well-seasoned wood, free tea/coffee and a decent shared kitchen area, wood-fired pizzas available on Saturday night, owners very friendly and helpful and of course the great location. Negatives: I'm not a huge fan of portaloos. If they converted these to permanent toilets, like the two they already have, I think this would be a big win.
I am inexperienced camper but stayed here with my son for two nights in August and completely recommend it. It is very well run and the facilities were excellent (we never queued for anything, though admittedly it was only about half full because of bad weather). My only comment would be on the recommended pubs - High Corner Inn is a great location and good if you can sit outside - but if you can't, I would avoid it. The Forresters Arms next to the campsite does not look like much from the outside but is a much better bet on all counts
The commitment of the family to ensure that everybody has a great time
We stayed for 2 nights at the end of July and just as others have said it is a very family friendly place with many things that you will not find in other campsites.i.e. coffee and tea and washing up liquid and fresh morning bakery goods. Having flattened by car battery by leaving a coolbox plugged in overnight Ian was there in 10 mins with car and jump leads to help me out! We are going back for a second time at the end of August to explore more of the immediate countryside as it was just too hot to walk far last time. Great place to stay!
Bell tent heaven
2 nd stay here. Had previously stayed a couple of years ago when was in early days of site. Things haven’t changed in terms of owners’ commitment to the experience from my last stay. They’re a lovely family that work hard to ensure all have a great stay. We decided to stay in the large bell tent this time. It was great and even had a lovely homemade cake waiting for us on arrival! They have the unexpected perk of being cooler than regular tents, which given it was 32 degrees whilst we were there was welcome. Toilets, showers and kitchen all very, very clean. The pizza van was back and was well worth it. Bery nice pub next to gate with good food. Just 10 min drive into town. Big recco on this site - we’ll be back again. Thanks to all there.
Everything that's good about camping!
We've just returned from a two day break with friends at Harry's Field. Admittedly, we had amazing weather but even so, this little gem of a campsite is everything we love about camping; freedom, relaxation, walking. 30 minutes away from some great beaches, a cracking little pub and walking trail on your doorstep - what more could you want? We were in the smaller field and pitched next to our friends. The middle area is kept free so the kids were able to play happily while we sat and drank G&T's and marvelled at the British weather! The facilites are not five star but are very well thought out and the cleanest I've EVER seen on a site! The onsite kettle/cups/tea/charging points/freezers were so appreciated and made a huge difference to our stay. My highlight was the record player spinning old '78s while I washed up....and the impromptu dance lesson from an older gent. I'm sorry about your toes! Wonderful, friendly campsite. Thank you for making us so welcome, you guys rock!! x
The friendly vibe and the little extras
We’ve just come back from a stay at Harry’s field. We had a lovely welcome from Vivienne and Ian, who seem to know everyone on first name terms. The site is fabulous, just the right size and safe enough for our small children to wander a bit. The facilities are brilliant, great little shop and kitchen (with teabags) lovely toilets and showers. Pizza night on Saturday night was a big hit, and having the walks, and the donkeys, literally outside the site was fantastic. We stayed in the bell tent this time which was so luxurious and well equipped. We will be back for sure.
Stuffed in Luke sardibes
Nice location but small field filled to the rafters with marked piches. No leaway at all a d they are not generous. So basically expect to be camping in top of people. Also there is no place for kids to play as too full of pitches. Never again Saying that the facilities are thought through with kettles and such like. But with so many people it is too busy. Pity it is about money and not camping
Relaxing, friendly, great amenities, quiet, chilled, perfect location, donkeys, good pub next door, couldn’t recommend it enough 👍🏻
A lovely, lovely little campsite! This place is just what imagined camping to be - really friendly, helpful and relaxed people, all the facilities one needs, clean, very simple, and yet with lovingly added details everywhere. There's a well stocked small shop on site and they even offer two belltents for glamping (pink chairs included!) It is quite obvious that the owners thoroughly enjoy what they are doing. The site is located in a pretty little village and the village pub is literally next door. We were on the smaller paddock to the side, which offers a sense of privacy and, well, coziness ;0) Also, aim to go during the week. you'll get to experience the uniqueness of this place a lot more!
Lovely campsite with a super vibe in a lovely location with wonderful owners. Don't be put off by the cabin showers, they're lovely and hot with plenty of water. Nice touch to be able to get fresh bread and croissants at the weekend and it is so handy to have a shop with local meat and extra marshmallow supplies. Nice pub next door, a farm shop up the road that does awesome cream teas and the Forest on your doorstep. We had an idyllic time.
Lovely welcoming site
We stayed here for one night last week and were impressed from start to finish. Spoke to the owner about a late booking and she was so helpful. A really lovely campsite with lots of brilliant small touches, like the little farm shop, lovely vintage trinkets all over which make it unique and just a generally friendly feel. We were pointed in the right direction for a lovely short walk with amazing surroundings. We will be recommending this campsite to anyone we know visiting the area. Make sure you visit the pub next door also for great food.
Little gem of a campsite
My daughter and I camped for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend and had a wonderful stay, in an idyllic location. The family running the site are friendly and welcoming and the facilities are basic but very clean. We loved the quirky touches like the "gold" mirrors in the posh toilets and music to accompany washing up! Local meat from camp shop was delicious on the BBQ, as were the freshly baked croissants for breakfast. Space was limited, so not much room for a game of football or cricket but the children all seemed to be having great fun. Would definitely return here, the owners are doing a great job running this campsite.
Could be great
Many people obviously enjoyed this new site for 2016 and the location is truly stunning. Anyone who believes that 2 sinks and 4 porta-loo showers is adequate for 300+ people obviously has a differing set of priorities to me. The pitches are a little small and too closely packed for my liking but it doesn't seem to bother others. The close proximity and high camper density gives the place a kind of festival feel that some people obviously like. I've given three stars for this site. One for the friendliness and enthusiasm of the team that run the site and two for the location that is really fantastic. If it weren't for the location... If the owners were to build a toilet/shower block before next season then I could see it being worthy of 5 stars.
This is one of the best sites I have stayed at in the Uk. This is a relatively new venture for 3 generations of a family and I think they are on to a good thing. The site is imaculately maintained. This is probably aided by the limited number of weeks in the year that they are open. The toilets and showers are a mix of permanent and portalloos/ showers. In my opinion they set the benchmark for cleanest loos you'll see. They are constantly being cleaned throughout the day. The result was that a couple of people that claimed they never use portaloos havpd no problem here. Pizzas cooked fresh on site on Saturday night we lovely. I'd recommend that you book early, as those later on faced big delays due to the popularity. Great pub next door for food and drink. It even has some wild but very friendly donkeys on its doorstep. Finally, the family that run the place are great. Very friendly and totally focuses on ensuing all have a fantastic camping experience.
We spent 3 nights here in mid August, the owners of the field couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. That seemed to rub off on all the campers staying there, it had s a warm, welcoming atmosphere. There were some nice extra touches too like a kettle, teabags and milk in the washing up area so you can make that first cup of tea in the morning to get you going, and the pizza van on Saturday night was great. Loads of power points for phone charging and pretty much all the essentials stocked in the shop. Good pub, and nice walks from the campsite. What more could you want?! We'll definitely be going back next year! This place deserves to be a success, well done guys!
A - MAZE - ING!!!
Fantastic campsite, with a lovely, friendly feel!! We arrived here in the late afternoon and felt very at home immediately!! Offered a cup of tea upon arrival and was asked "would your daughter like to come and sing happy birthday to this little girl and have some cake?" The little golf buggy rides were a hit and the helpfulness of everybody on site was brilliant!! I felt like I knew Viv & Ian like they were old friends by the time we left. The pub next door was great with fantastic food. Would recommend this site to everyone, and will definitely be back. Thanks for making our holiday even more enjoyable.
We have just returned home after 6 fantastic nights camping here, no one wanted to leave in fact our little boy cried his eyes out and said he wanted to live here all year long. It was a fabulous site with a lovely atmosphere; for once we felt we could let the kids go off biking round the field and not worry. The guys who run the site could not do enough for you and some lovely little touches made a huge difference, mobile phone charging, Wood Fired Pizza on the Saturday night, well stocked shop with fresh bread every day, great pub next door, the list goes on and on. We have camped many times and I have to say this was the nicest site we have stayed on, would highly recommend to all. Looking forward to returning next year
Friendly and welcoming - very special site
LOVED Harry's Field - feel very lucky to have found it on it's opening weekend! This is a very special place with a lovely atmosphere - a credit to the incredibly friendly & welcoming family who run the site.
Best bits: tea & cake on arrival (amazing!), freshly baked pastries on the weekend, spotless loos and showers (they may only be portable showers but the water was hot, the pressure was good, and there were plenty of hooks to hang up clothes / towels behind the shower curtain to keep them dry), good size pitches, no traffic noise (unless you count donkeys and horses walking past...!), firepits, yummy local sausages and bacon from the little shop on site, pub next door will serve you in plastic glasses so you can take your drinks back to your campfire, big co-op nearby in Fordingbridge to get supplies, recycling on site (we were given bags for rubbish & recycling when we arrived), plenty of plugs for charging mobile phones...oh, and the wonderful Viv, Ian, Harriet, Jesse, Harry and Pete who made us feel so welcome.
I loved our time here - it was really nice to stay somewhere where you feel the people who run it genuinely care about your stay and go out of their way to make sure you have the best possible experience. At the end of our weekend it felt like we were leaving friends - hope to be back soon :-)
Stayed for 2 nights in May and were thoroughly impressed with this site. The hosts were so friendly and helpful, the facilities were clean and the shop was well stocked. There were so many lovely little touches to the site including the joy of warm croissants on sale in the morning! Thankyou so much to Vivien and Ian for all of their hard work and for making our stay so enjoyable.
Never met a more helpful and welcoming family & campsite
We (two adults and two young kids) turned up with a brand new (and untested) bell tent with no guy ropes or pegs!! Naturally panic set in but Viv, Jesse, Harriet, Harry and Ian were on hand to recover the situation, whizzing about in a golf buggy decked out in bunting followed by Dash the Dog. Its a thoroughly family friendly campsite. It is in its infancy at the moment, but that all added to the whole experience. They made a fuss of every single family that came through the gate, came around with tea, coffee and cake for their inaugural weekend, and had a great little shop with all the camping essentials and loads of local meat, which was a lovely surprise. They had bucket and nets for the kids to use in the local river. we had to leave early because of the boys being ill but Viv was quick to send an email when we were home to offer us some time to make up for the loss. We hope to return in August and will endeavour to make it an annual trip as they were so kind and helpful. It was like camping in a friends garden! :) see you soon guys. Patrick
Great family friendly site
We were lucky enough to stay at Harry's Field on their debut. It was perfectly thought out, all the little touches making it very special, mobile phone charging points, plug in kettles, adding that little something extra! Three generations help to run the site which adds to the whole experience, Harry, Viv and Ian were always on hand, it was a very relaxed and friendly site. The pitches had ample room, with open spaces for the kids to come together for a game or two! We had a great meal at the pub next door and there are numerous walks on the doorstep, the location is perfect for a relaxed, chilled out getaway. We shall definitely be returning.
