Grass Pitch

UK England South East England Hampshire Fordingbridge Harry's Field

  • Sleeps 6 (max 6 adults, 5 children)
A perfectly formed pitch in one of the New Forest’s most striking hamlets. Our pitches are marked and preallocated. They are a generous 10m squared and as well as being flat and very well-drained – we know first-hand the perils of an uneven pitch – our campsite is sheltered too, surrounded by hedgerows teaming with birdlife.

The Owner Says

As well as being flat and very well-drained – we know first-hand the perils of an uneven pitch – our campsite is sheltered too, surrounded by hedgerows teaming with birdlife.

Just a few steps from your tent there is access to miles of uninterrupted walking trails, the perfect antidote to the unruly din of the city. Keep an eye out for herds of deer and, of course, New Forest ponies. You’re more than welcome to bring your own wild animal along too, we like good dogs on leads and equally good owners who clean up after them.

Escapism and considerate New Forest camping underpins our philosophy at Harry’s Field, so we don’t welcome large groups – sorry to be party poopers.

With no busy roads, just quiet country lanes, the only thing that will keep you awake at night will be the hoot of owls – and maybe a snoring husband, but I’m afraid we can’t do much about that!

The facilities at Harry’s Field are just what you’d expect from a well-equipped camper’s campsite.

A small stock of locally sourced foods will be available on the campsite. For more substantial supplies, the local towns of Fordingbridge (2 miles) or Ringwood (6 miles) will not disappoint.

More than anything we value the serenity and flawless natural beauty of the New Forest so, as you’ll imagine, we’re super keen on recycling. You’ll find the whole spectrum of recycling boxes onsite so there’s no need to cart your empty bottles home.

We have hot showers and flushing loos and sinks for washing up.

There’s plenty of room to stoke up your barbecue too, or why not make use of our resident fire baskets?

Our ample pitches mean you won’t be tripping over other guest’s guy ropes.

About Harry's Field

Suitable For

Tents, campervans, motorhomes and dogs – yes. Large groups and caravans – no.


Walking and cycling are the most obvious attractions and the best way to take in the New Forest's diverse wildlife. The New Forest boasts some of the best walking in the country. From the gate you can walk for mile upon mile without ever seeing a road or a car. The open New Forest is all around us and the cycle trails are legendary around our village of Frogham.

If you're quiet enough deer, badgers, wild horses and ponies can all be spotted. The New Forest also boasts some of the best walking in the country.
Some of the UK's best beaches are also easily accessible with Bournemouth (25 mins) and the famous National Trust beach of Studland (1hr). 

Food & Drink

There is a small shop onsite selling local produce and our local – The Foresters Arms (01425 652294) – is right next door. Their traditional pub food is very good and there's a selection of fine local ales on tap.  For a secret spot, walk across the forest to the Royal Oak (02380 812606) at Fritham (1.5 hours walk or cycle ride with no roads or vehicles in site) or try  quite walk across Hyde Common to The Potting Shed Cafe, half a mile away, where they make outstanding cream teas and lunches.  – The friendly and welcoming Horse and Groom (01725 510739) in Woodgreen is a lovely, quintessentially English forest pub, serving really great food, excellent beer and a very friendly atmosphere. There is the Three Lions in Stuckton just a short 1/2 mile walk away.
There are numerous restaurants and good New Forest Pubs in the surrounding villages and in our local town of Fordingbridge which is 2 miles away.

Family Friendly

Terry's Chocolate Orange, Gordon's Gin, Harry's Field... We're not sure who all these people are but we like what they do. And they all do exactly what they say on the tin. This really is just a field. But what an excellent field it is.

Very disappointing glamping experience! Facilities were tired and not clean. Copwebs and dead bugs in the ladies shower area. Tons of hotch potch outbuildings with lots of pots and random items lying around give the whole place a messy and slovenly appearance. No hot water on the first morning we stayed. We were promised access to a fridge and freezer but couldn’t find them as nobody was there to check us in or out or indeed show us where anything was! We were blamed for not being able to find them when we addressed this with the owner. Our lamps in the tent were not working, the bbq and table were dirty. The photos on their website portray a far more glamorous experience than is the reality of it all. I paid a lot of money for two nights at this place but will definitely be not returning.

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.
