Grass Pitch (1 at Harry's Field)
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 ForTents, campervans, motorhomes and dogs – yes. Large groups and caravans – no.
NearbyWalking 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.
Food & DrinkThere 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.
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.
