Family-friendly pop-up camping in the heart of the New Forest.

When your campsite lies in the thick of one of the country’s great national parks, swimming pools, games rooms and onsite entertainment seem wholly redundant. You won’t find any such fripperies at Teddy’s Farm, a cracking New Forest pop-up between Lymington and Brockenhurst. This is camping as it should be, with acres of space for kids to run themselves ragged playing games and building dens.

A refreshingly relaxed atmosphere reigns here, with dogs welcome, campfires permitted, no formal pitches to hem you in and an uncommon sense of space that makes you appreciate what a find this place truly is. As a working sheep farm, kids will love meeting their bleating new friends and may even be lucky enough to catch the resident sheepdog at work. Facilities are basic but more than adequate for a site of this size that only pops-up fleetingly for a month or so at summertime. Best of all, the farm’s very own pasture-fed lamb is available to buy – a fitting and delicious centrepiece for your campfire cookout.

Though titular host Teddy’s family have been rearing sheep at the 170-acre Battramsley Farm since the late 1970s, his family’s farming roots in the New Forest go back over 200 years. So if ever there was a campsite host who can claim to know a thing or two about these parts, it’s Teddy. And with a wealth of walking routes, scenic seaside spots and little-known gems to seek out, there’s no end to the adventures that await beyond the farm gates. The pretty port town of Lymington lies five minutes’ drive away and boasts a plethora of olde worlde pubs and charming chocolate-box shop fronts on its quaint cobbled streets. Henry VIII’s Hurst Castle and the innumerable woodland trails of the national park will capture your interest, while beaches aplenty await – the sandier varieties can be found further west towards Bournemouth, Mudeford and the Christchurch Harbour.

Excellent 10/10

We spent a lovely relaxing 10 days at Teddy’s Farm in August, the campsite is lovely you can pick your own spot, lovely views. New Forest trails just a 10 minute walk down the road. The coffee is fantastic at the coffee trailer just what you need in a morning. The pizzas we had on the Friday night were delicious. The showers are always hot when we used them there was never any queues very clean, toilets very clean, very clear instructions on how to use them. Hand sanitisers always full. Teddy and his boys are always about for any enquiries and Teddy comes to see you once you are all set up to introduce himself which is a first for us whenever we have been camping you hardly ever see the owners. I found this to be a very nice part of the camping experience every time someone new arrived Teddy introduced himself, we could not fault Teddy’s Farm in anyway. We are definitely going to go back to Teddy’s as it is really relaxing and in an excellent spot for walks, biking etc or if you just want to go down the road and see the New Forest Ponies roaming.

Wonderful Escape

We visited Teddy's Farm during the August Bankholiday, and it was pure bliss, dispite the popular weekend we were able to pitch our camp with over 20m between us and our neighbouring campers. The thunder box loos are designed fantastically both environmentally and estetically and well spaced around the site. The hot water, showers and freezer for ice packs were a luxury. There was so much to do and see in the area we could have stayed for a week. We visited Hurst Castle, and walked through the wetland nature reserve on the first day, on our second we opted to leave the car behind and spent the day walking the Moors from the farm, and on the third day we walked through miles of woodland near Brockenhurst. Teddy came and introduced himself to us and was always on hand for any questions or concerns. A beautiful location, and great escape for family or friends. We will definitely be back. Oh and the dogs had a great time too!

Happy days

Beautifully relaxed atmosphere with welcoming hosts. Fire pit hire, great showers and compost loos. Loved the addition of coffee truck and will try pizza man next year! Excellent location to explore the Forest and beaches. Will return again and again.
★★★★★

Lovely eco camping

Our family (2 adults, 3 teenagers) thoroughly enjoyed our camping trip to Teddy’s farm. The thought and attention to detail put into this pop up camping destination is evident. The showers are piping hot and very clean, a welcome respite whilst camping! The choice of creating thunder box toilets demonstrates farmer Teddy’s desire to consider the environmental impact of his guests. Farmer Teddy checked and cleaned the toilets at least 4 times a day and whilst they might not be everyone’s choice, they were well maintained and functional. We enjoyed having the fire pit in the evenings and were treated to noisy Little Owls as we toasted marshmallows on the fire. The atmosphere in the campsite was relaxed and chilled. It attracts family and friend groups all pretty respectful of keeping quiet in the later evenings. Teddy was very attentive and available throughout our stay if there were any issues. I would definitely recommend this place as a option for a family camping trip.

Great peaceful stay

Teddy’s farm was the perfect quiet getaway. It’s beautifully basic but also with warm showers and a coffee truck! What’s not to love. Perfect location and really friendly team. Thanks for a great stay!
★★★☆☆

Plenty of space - bring a toilet

We stayed at Teddys farm as we were visiting family in the local area. Pros: There is plenty of space to camp and lovely views of the farm land. Showers were excellent and hot. Pizza on the Friday was scrumptious and the bar was an added bonus and great environmentally friendly approach. Cons: Compostable toilets not for me - bring your own. Ground was very rocky and grass was too long and needed cutting so hard to pitch up. Wash up area not very practical and there needed to be more taps and a sink. There was no where to brush your teeth. Signs and information limited on site - had to work out what to do from others camping there already.

Response from Teddy's Farm

Hello Laura.  Thank you for review.  Please bear in mind that we are a 28-day pop-up campsite and that for the rest of the year we are a working sheep farm.  We are all off-grid, do not benefit from mains drainage etc hence not having a sink with drains, and that at the end of the 28 days (albeit 56 days this year), all facilities have to be packed away and the farm reverts back to its primary role as a working farm.  I'm sorry that the composting loos were not to your liking, but they do allow us to operate in our isolated location.  They are regularly cleaned and, when people follow the clear and simple instructions posted in each cubicle, they work well.  For anyone wanting to bring their own facilities instead, we have a chemical waste disposal point and do not charge extra for portaloo tents.  Regarding the ground being rocky, this simply isn't the case.  The whole farm is of a medium loam topsoil over gravel.  This may sometimes make putting tent pegs in more difficult, but it also means the ground stands up well in wet conditions.  Regarding the grass being too long and needing cutting, this is only true in parts of the second field.  Given the amount of space we have put aside for camping this year, which you have acknowledged, it really hasn't been necessary to pitch where the grass is longer.  Regarding there being nowhere to brush your teeth, I'm afraid I don't understand this as there are numerous water points around the site.  Regarding the lack of information, we send a detailed info email before arrival which I have checked and can confirm was sent to you.  On the plus side I appreciate you acknowledging our environmentally friendly approach, and delighted you enjoyed the views of the farm.  It is also good to hear you enjoyed the visiting pizza/bar outlets.  These are both new ventures for us this year, something we will look to build on next year.

Scenic, relaxed

Highly recommended site for a genuine camping experience. We spent a lovely weekend at Teddy’s as a group of 12 kids and adults. There was a very relaxed atmosphere with lots of other campers enjoying the beautiful space but without it feeling too crowded - the kids loved the freedom of roaming the site (and parents felt safe to let them do it!) The facilities are rustic but very regularly maintained and there was always a friendly member of staff on hand to help if needed. The bar and “shop” on-site were an added bonus, along with the fire bowls, and as a first family camping trip it was exactly what we wanted. The location is also great for exploring the New Forest.
★★★★★

Picturesque spot, friendly and relaxed.

2 fields available. Lovely and quiet, only heard owl calls and sheep at night so I slept like a baby. Fire pits for hire add to the camping experience. Thunderbox composting toilets were actually fine, once you get used to them, and I am sure they are environmentally sound. Shower facilities although basic were probably preferable to a standard shower block. Nice and hot. Teddy and family were excellent hosts along with the lovely guy in the coffee van and the couple in the beer hut. (We we’re too late for the Friday night pizzas).
★★★★★

Great place to stay

I’m not a fan of camping but I have to say I really enjoyed the site. That says a lot! The showers were hot and clean and the toilets were fine; eco-friendly and enough to accommodate the numbers of campers easily. There’s a little van that sells coffee, muffins and such in the morning, and a there’s a place to buy ice cream, marshmallows and hire a fire pit in the late afternoon. Teddy himself was friendly and the site was well spaced for a quiet, restful break.
★★★★★

Beautiful location quiet site

Beautiful location, Teddy very welcoming and friendly felt relaxed and at ease. The showers were hot and always available without any stress. The toilets however were awful the thunder box smelt disgusting and having a week here took it’s toll. Also some electric block would have been great to enable us to charge phones, use a hairdryer etc but it didn’t stop us enjoying our time away. Highly recommended to anyone wanting some peace and time to enjoy the outdoors
★★★★★

Very friendly owner and great showers

Teddy is a very helpful guy and it is a well maintained site. Thunderdrop toilets are a bit rustic but they are always kept clean. Showers were really good. First field is flatter than the second.

Relaxed and friendly

Great location, being so close to Lymington and easy to access all the activities the New Forest has to offer. The site was well set up with wonderful showers and plenty of composting loos. Loads of space and Teddy and his family were very welcoming. We were so relaxed we didn't want to go home, so stayed an extra 2 nights!

A warm welcome from the host, Teddy and fantastic amenities

We chose Teddy's as a meeting point so were delighted with the welcome and facilities. The pizza and drinks on a Friday were a great bonus. Dogs are welcome even though it's a working farm. We had a fabulous stay, three days was not enough to explore all the lovely towns and walks so we will just have to return 😁

Weekend break

Just had the most relaxing stay at Teddy’s farm. Lots of space to camp and Teddy is the most helpful and friendly host. Sitting round the fire pit in the evening watching the children make friends and playing games is wonderful. Lovely clean campsite and once I got my head around the compostable loos I was fine. The mobile pizza van and bar on the Friday night were a lovely touch and there was a lovely ambience throughout our stay. Well done Teddy we will definitely be coming back.
★★★★★

Lovely, quiet site

We stayed at Teddy's Farm for three nights and loved it. The field was spacious and not too full. Although we were in the 'undulating' field, we managed to find a flat area to camp on - hurrah, no more sliding off the airbed in the middle of the night! The facilities are great - showers are the best I've seen on any campsite - great water pressure and always hot. The composting toilets are, well, composting toilets. But they're well maintained and not too grim. The only thing I'd add is a charging point for mobiles. We use our phones for all sorts and now that you have to book everything in advance, you can't really do without one. All in all I loved our stay here and would come back.

The Perfect Camp Site!

I loved it so much, almost don't want others to know it's there! Three teenagers and me... We camped in the second field, which had longer grass and slopes. We found a great spot at the bottom of one slopes near the sheep field. The compost loos are great, just make sure you read the instructions before you commence your performance! The showers were lovely, hot and clean! The kids told me the wash up station was good... I didn't look myself, as that was their job! (but if teenagers think it's a good wash up station, Teddy must be getting something right, maybe I should install one at home? :-)) Fantastic pricing, which made it affordable for a single parent to take three kids away for a few days. We hired a Fire Pit for the three nights, which I think is a fantastic service at a great cost and it was a good size. Logs are available to buy from Teddy. My daughter loved the signs; "This is a working farm, Please use common sense" Teddy himself was an absolute gent, popping round the fields morning and / or evening to check on everything. I cannot wait to return, I just hope Teddy keeps it just as it is.
★★★★★

Peaceful and clean

We had an enjoyable stay despite atrocious weather. The farm was lovely, peaceful, and the facilities clean.
★★★★★

Beautiful spot, proper camping!

My family and I spent a week camping at Teddy's Farm. We loved the relaxed atmosphere and pitched up at the bottom of the 2nd field, down the hill surrounded by sheep. It felt like we were the only ones there. We were a bit of a walk from the facilities but that wasn't a problem. The composting toilets were great and the showers were fantastic! You are literally in the heart of the New Forest, so a great base for cycling through the forest, but also close to the lovely town of Lymington, the beautiful Beaulieu Palace & Motor museum and the great beaches at Milford. We thoroughly enjoyed our week. Thanks Teddy x
★★★★★

A great spot - friendly and relaxed

Loved staying here. Teddy was super helpful with logs and firepit, check in was easy and the coffee truck was awesome on Sunday morning - we'll be back
★★★★★

Beautiful location, run by a friendly family.

We stayed at Teddy's farm for 4 nights with 2 small children and had a wonderful time. They have all the facilities to make your camping experience a little more comfortable including the most amazing showers with an endless supply of hot water. The fire pits which can be hired, were great for toasting marshmallows. The composting toilets are maintained throughout the day and are stocked with toilet roll (just in case you forget your own :)). The owners are a lovely family who are always happy to make sure you are happy. Teddy's farm is located very close to the forest so you can explore the local wildlife and is in quite close proximity to some nice public houses that serve some really great food. Overall we had a great time and we will be visiting again.
★★★★★

Lovely few days away in the New Forest area.

Great location, very pleasant for me & my beautiful six year old daughter. Fabulous place, lots of space, kept spotless by the owner & hosts, the showers were brilliant after busy days at the beach, New Forest & Portsmouth Naval base history trips. Fabulous host, great coffees. Just a shame we had to come back. Simply put, a fabulous time & we enjoyed our holiday. Thank you 😊
★★★★☆

Beautiful site, basic but everything you need

This is a lovely site - We stayed in the second field which is not flat but very charming. It was a bit hard to find a good pitch when we arrived as most of the space left was on a slope, but we did find one and it had a great view of the sheep field, which was idyllic. There were a couple of noisy groups there that we hadn’t expected - the first night a group played karaoke until 11pm and later in the week we could still hear another group’s music when we went to bed at midnight. Other than that though, the site was really peaceful and we really enjoyed our stay. We were disappointed that there weren’t the food vans we’d expected, there was a coffee van twice during our stay but nothing else, and no sign of the farm lamb being sold. But having said that, Teddy did the rounds of the campers most evenings to check all ok and you had everything you needed so we could have asked him, and it was a nice and thoughtful touch. The facilities were basic but good. The showers were excellent - powerful, hot, spacious and free and generally no queuing required. The toilets didn’t smell at all until you were in the cubicle, and only then because other campers didn’t follow the simple instructions on how to use them. They were clean and I didn’t have an issue using them at all. There is no hot running water other than at the washing up station (and showers of course), where there is no sink but a high tap and a table to put your washing bowl. That means for things like washing your face at night you have to boil your own water or get a bit wet using the washing up station, but we got a good routine after a couple of nights. There’s no wash block either, so it’s a case of cleaning your teeth at your tent and spitting in the grass, but again, not a problem for us. The freezer for freezing ice packs is huge and conveniently placed at the entrance to the farm, and the local pub was excellent. We would definitely go back. Thanks very much Teddy!

Laid back few days

We had a relaxed catch up with old friends. Teddy and the family were very friendly and helpful and everything was easy. There was plenty of space to spread out and we chatted round the fire for hours - peaceful and pretty perfect. Thank you!

Proper camping

Had a wonderful few nights camping with friends at Teddys farm! Spacious fields where you can pitch comfortably in groups, gazebos at no extra cost too!!!!

Great camping experience

Our family had a good time staying at Teddy's farm, not having camped in a while. The fields are spacious and it's good to see other families having get togethers nearby. Good showers, we were near the railway tracks however there were no trains during weekend. The field is quite rocky, stable and doesn't get muddy even after heavy rain.
★★★★★

Relaxed, spacious camping with sheep and owls.

We enjoyed a relaxing stay at the spacious and welcoming Teddy's Farm. The facilities were basic but fine. Composting loos worked well and were cleaner than many festival loos I have experienced. We enjoyed the hot showers and fire pit hire, and there was even a pop up bar and pizza truck on the Friday evening. With loads of space to spread out, the campsite is ideal for families, yet peaceful for couples who want to get away from it all. The only thing I would improve is the washing-up area. It would be nice to have a few sinks and space for draining/drying. Overall a very pleasing experience with a soundtrack of sheep, and owls through the night.
★★★★★

Highly recommended

There is a wonderful sense of space at Teddy’s Farm. We pitched in the middle of the second field and had a view of the field sweeping down to the hill opposite with sheep and trees. The loos are clean and showers are hot. They are well designed and well ventilated. Plenty of hand washing stands with soap. It was nice to have the option of the pizzas and bar on Friday night and even better that these were tucked away at the barn.

Lovely camping site

Just back from a weekend at Teddy's farm. What a lovely site, lots of space, very peaceful and the perfect base from which to explore Lymington. Our teenagers enjoyed swimming at Lymington lido and eating fish and chips on the quay. They weren't sure about the eco-toilets but coped fine. Hot showers were good and the coffee man was excellent!
★★★★★

Perfect for a weekend away!

We absolutely loved Teddy's Farm and it was perfect for our whole family to meet for a camping trip. The site is so big so there was plenty of spots to choose from and we had lots of space around us. Booking was super easy and we were sent all the relevant information the week before meaning arriving was incredibly easy. The bar on the Friday night and coffee in the mornings were such a nice touch and we enjoyed both. We would definitely come back here again and would recommend to anyone looking for a weekend away in the New Forest. Thank you so much Teddy and the team - we will be back!

Lovely weekend

I just got back from a weekend camping here. You lovely location, nice clean facilities and heard many people comment how the showers are actually better than the ones they have at home! Also a nice surprise to have a stool that sold fresh tea and coffee each morning and even a little pop up bar was there on the Friday night which was very good. The only tiny thing that could be improved is either more than 1 washing station or at least a couple of extra benches to allow people to move away and wash after they have got water. But apart from that, no fault and Teddy was extremely friendly and came round asking how people's weekends were. Definitely recommended.

Loved it, will definitely be back

After years of going to the big commercial campsites nearby we decided to give Teddy's a go, sooo glad we did, we will definitely be back. It's a very relaxed atmosphere very warm, welcoming, and personal. Generally a great family site. Teddy is a lovely guy who clearly puts happy campers before profit, I'm pretty sure you won't be sharing tent pegs with your neighbours on a busy Bank Holiday like some sites. Although there isn't a shop onsite there is a co op 2 minutes down the road so running out of milk wasn't a problem. (Takes no longer than walking to the site shop) They do serve coffee on a morning and have a mobile bar come in some evenings. I'm not a drinker but the cold shandy I had was lovely after a hot day with nothing but warm drinks. Teddy did mention future plans to have other vans come in like a pizza van. The toilets and showers maybe a little rustic for some but they do smell better than the big shower and toilet blocks at some sites, I thought they added to the charm of the place. Thanks again to Teddy and family see you soon. FYI I never leave reviews, for anything, so me being inspired to write this is praise indeed.

Such a gem!

We had such a lovely weekend camping at Teddies Farm! My husband, our dog Ralph and and I stayed for two nights on Friday 16th July 2021 and had such a great time chilling and enjoying the New Forest countryside. Teddie really knows how to make his campers feel welcome and his friendly and stress free manner is so refreshing. All facilities were great and regularly cleaned and the showers are lovely with plenty of hot water. Teddie had arranged for a stylish events bar and a chic coffee stand, which we did not use (purely because we had our own supplies but would not rule out being tempted to purchase some of their goodies on our next visit) the staff were friendly too and we thought these facilities were a lovely addition to the site. We had lots of space and the fellow campers were friendly and respectful. It was great to see the sheep and we loved chilling and listening to them natter away to each other! We would definitely like to camp at Teddies Farm again and would definitely recommend this campsite to anyone that wishes to get away from it all in a gem of a place and enjoy some quality time with their loved ones!

Best campsite we've stayed at this year

Very friendly and approachable host, fabulous facilities (composting toilets had lots of ventilation, plenty of water points, chemical disposal point well maintained), lots of space around our pitch ... and incredible views. The local was great for off-road family cycling trips to the New Forest (trails just ~10min drive away) and then a trip to the coast to cool off with a swim at the sea. All in all, this is simply the best campsite we've stayed at this year, and we will certainly look to come back.

Great campsite

A lovely weekend, great pitch, lots of room, great showers and a fab coffee van in the mornings. Would really recommend. Lovely friendly family running the site. We went to The Red Lion pub, a 15 min walk away, on Saturday evening - the food was excellent, would also really recommend.
★★★★★

Lovely break

We arrived around 13:30 and there were plenty of areas to pitch your tent. We chose to stay in the second field which had lovely views. The compostable toilets were great (with no unpleasant odours) well stocked toilet rolls, hand sanitiser and running water (drinkable) outside. Lovely hot showers and an area to wash up too. Great location to explore the area on our bikes. Very close to Sway, Brockenhurst and Lymington.

Family camping as it should be!

Teddy and his family have done a great job setting up this relaxed and friendly campsite. There was plenty of space, great composting 'Thunderboxes' and lovely little cafe doing coffee, strawberries and firewood. The campsite was split over two fields - surrounded by woodlands (which were off limits) and had taps at regular points, and GREAT hot showers and washing up points. Basically it was super lovely and our group of 3 families had a wonderful time! (There is also a great pub a 15 min walk from the campsite - highly recommend!)
★★★★★

Total Bliss !!

We loved our stay at Teddy's Farm. It's so rural with bags of charm. Going to sleep at night listening to the sheep and the Owl made it the perfect way to fall asleep. I can't wait to rebook but for longer next time. The thunderboxes take a little getting used to but we're all human and it is a fact of life going to the loo! No probs booking in, firepit was great, spotted some children being sent off to collect the kindling which they loved. Only 2 miles from Lymington which is a lovely interesting spot with a very nice bike hire shop in the town, do check out the open air sea water pool. All in all great place to stay - Thanks to Teddy and the team!

Excellent!

Had a wonderful bank holiday weekend at Teddy’s Farm... lots of space, welcoming staff, clean toilets (although separate nappy bins elsewhere, rather than hanging in cubicles, would be good for smell), really fantastic showers, water stands and soap bars dotted throughout camping areas, sheep bleating away in surrounding fields, short walk on country lanes to good pub, BBQ meat and basic fire provisions available on site, great location for exploring the New Forest on foot or bike.

A glorious camping site close to nature

Can’t recommend this camp site enough. Great space, with clean and spacious facilities and Teddy & family are warm and welcoming. There are two fields and you can park up and pitch where it works for you. It’s also close to Lymington - we used taxis one day and pick up and drop off was seamless. Surrounded by nature and sheep you can totally relax - will definitely be going back.

Lovely stay

Such a lovely stay helped by amazing weather. Teddy and his team are very friendly. The facilities are basic which was expected but it was clean and really well maintained. We actually really loved the outdoor wooden showers. Field full of daisies/pop up shop/freezer to use/fire pits/clean facilities/pitch where you want/like minded camping neighbours - it was perfect!
★★★★★

Fantastic Camping Weekend!

So glad you opened up the second field for 2021 - we had a blast. Kids loved it, was a great chance to reconnect outdoors with fantastic friends. Lovely to be able to camp as a group and still have oodles of space. Loads of taps with soap provided for regular handwashing so we all felt very covid secure. Brilliant Bank Holiday weather helped but honestly, I have no complaints! Loved my outdoor shower and the thunderboxes were an education for the children - awesome. We'll be back I'm sure! Thanks for having us and being great hosts - it was great to meet you and see you on site as much as we did :)
★★★★★

Stayed 3 nights - very pleasant

Camp site was well thought out in terms of access to loos and water points. The field was flat, so you weren’t sleeping on a slope. Lovely views over the trees. The compost loos were clever, clean and thanks to having separate urinal facilities, did not smell. Picking a pitch and collecting fire pit and logs was very easy. Nice touch to have a freezer available to refreeze ice bricks - thank you. Campers, bring a marker pen to mark your plastic bag / ice bricks so they don’t get mistaken for others’ ice bricks. Teddy was very helpful and friendly, as were other staff. We would definitely come back. Thank you!

Fantastic campsite and hospitality

What a lovely site Teddy’s Farm is. Very quiet and picturesque. Enough facilities to be comfortable but basic enough to feel close to nature. Wonderful host - very helpful and friendly. He saved our life with a jump start and couldn’t have done more for us. Great location - close to lots of different parts of the New Forest and a short drive from lots of lovely sandy beaches in Bournemouth. Will be a firm favourite when wanting to camp in the New Forest and can’t wait to return.
★★★★★

Superb

What a wonderful weekend at a beautiful location. The site has a relaxed atmosphere, nothing is regimented, nothing is any bother, just turn up, pitch your tent, kick back and relax. It’s a lovely setting with oodles to see and do nearby. Didn’t want to leave, the whole family enjoyed it and we can’t wait to get back next year. Thank you Teddies.

Well-organised pop up campsite

We had a fantastic stay at Teddy's farm over the August bank holiday weekend. We'd never stayed at a pop up campsite before, so we were a little unsure of a weekend with very basic facilities. However the pop-up aspect became all part of the adventure! We'd never seen compost loos before, but were really impressed. Despite the simplicity, cleaniness was never compromised. We noticed the toilets were regularly cleaned, and hand sanitiser was provided as well as soap at the taps. Ingenious outdoor showers to keep everyone safe. Teddy was very visible and concerned with ensuring everyone was having a good time and also kept a close eye on any inconsiderate visitors, whilst at the same time maintaining a relaxed atmosphere. Very well organised with rubbish/recycling, firepits, logs, and even a small honesty shop in a horsebox! A lovely calm site in a great location in the middle of the New Forest. We will definitely be back!
★★★★★

Lovely campsite!

We have just come back from a fantastic weekend at Teddy’s Farm. The pitches are generous, we booked 3 for 4 families (7 adults and 7 children) and had plenty of space. Although I’m not normally a big fun of compost toilets, they were always clean and didn’t smell too much. The outdoor showered were amazing, the water was hot and good water pressure. We will definitely go back next year!

Lovely stay in a gorgeous campsite!

Lovely spot and great facilities

Huge campsite so great for distancing from others, very clean and tidy and everyone very respectful of that as huge recycling point for your rubbish Which everyone used and so nice to see a clean and litter free campsite . Very peaceful , toilets and outdoor showers were super clean . Plenty of water points and washing facilities and the water was always so hot and very powerful . Loved the outdoor showers with the view across the farm. Teddy was very helpful And welcoming on arrival and loved the option of the fire pits as made it feel so cosy in the evening . Would definitely stay again as a good location to get to other areas of the forest and great value , another washing up point would be useful but still managed to do the washing up so not essential !
★★★★★

Beautifu, clean and quiet campsite

What a wonderful place. Spacious and vast there's plenty of room for more than adequate social distancing. Also means other campers won't keep you awake. The facilities are really clean (best compost toilets I've ever used) and showers always had hot water. Really enjoyed the fire pit and made it feel so cozy & kept us warm in the evenings. Thoroughly recommend this site enough. Thanks Teddy and we'll be back next year!

Happy camping!

Arriving, you make a quick left off the main road and into a lawn mower repair yard.Access to the campsites are sharp right and you carryon down a narrow, fenced-off track and it soon becomes apparent that this is a working sheep farm .The first field encountered is the long and the flat...On the right are composite toilets(which I later found quite acceptable) and on the left, a series of drinking water taps spaced at regular intervals.Very useful Beyond a large open agricultural shelter,are the open showers, washing-up facilities and beginning of field 2, a jaw-dropping vista of rolling Hampshire countrysideIf you can find a level area in this field to pitch up you would be doing well So I pitched up and settled in,with the farmer Teddy soon appearing,and wishing me an enjoyable stay.Evidently, I hadn’t seen him but he had seen me!Fellow campers were few and far between, (literally)at this time and after a peaceful few days where the bleating of lambs drowned out the sound of human activity,things were about to change.If you not keen on the quiet life then your prayers would have been answered by Friday evening.It was as if a mini music festival was about to unfold and I half-expected a stage to be erected as car after car arrived and their occupants pitched up.The campsite had a double life and there was a buzz about it.If you don’t wish to stay at camp all the time there is a pleasant country pub a mile away in Boldre.If you want to venture further afield there’s an hourly bus service to Lymington from a stop on the main road.
★★★★★

Spacious & practical campsite

We really enjoyed camping here- there was plenty of space to distance from other groups, and frequent water points. The showers, toilets & washing up point were fairly basic but easy to use & had hot water when needed- everything was great for a short stay at the campsite.
★★★★★

Basic but beautiful in the New Forest

We stayed at Teddy's Farm at the end of August as a bit of a last minute booking. The campsite is a temporary pop up on two large fields and it is very clear this is a working farm but the whole experience was great fun. We pitched right at the far end of the campsite, next to the train line so our stay was punctuated by cries of 'Train!' and a quick sprint to see how many people were on it (never more than four). It's a pretty hilly sight but with lots of terraces and no marked pitches so you'd have to be pretty picky to be unable to find a flat spot. The 'thunderboxes' are a bit challenging if you are not used to that sort of thing so a portable loo might be a good plan, especially when it is a bit of a plod in the middle of the night, and the showers are also a bit of a trek if you are at the other end of the site, so plan accordingly. The setting was absolutely beautiful and we had fun foraging for campfire fuel and generally just hanging out. Striking camp was very leisurely with the late check out and we very much hope to return when the site reopens next summer.
★★★★★

Fantastic campsite in the New forest

Teddy's farm is a lovely campsite and we really enjoyed our stay here. It was spacious and easy to distance from other groups. The outdoor showers had constant hot water, were clean and there was a great view from them! Teddy was friendly and helpful from the moment we booked to when we left. The firepits are a great addition. The site is in a good location close to the local pub, Brockenhurst station and the beautiful New forest. The only thing we would suggest is to install a water point near the chemical disposal point.
★★★★★

back to nature

lovely camp site. very hot water for showers, toilets are fine and maintained well. quiet and spacious, great for kids to explore. fire pits are a winner. owls tooting each night. great location, with a coop just a few mins away. liked the easy freedom of booking per person rather than other painful restrictive campsites that charge per car or gazebo or tent etc. teddy is a great host 👍🏻

August bank holiday weekend stay

This was a superb find in the New Forest. The campsite was amazing with plenty of space between pitches and great facilities. It’s rare to find a site where the hot water for washing up and showering is always hot no matter what time of the day. The site is in a great location and yet not far from Lymington. It was a truly restful stay and made even better with the way you were treated by Teddy who was always very pleasant and did not have a long list of rules yet everyone was sensible and abused by the new restrictions in place. The site had many level pitches which was ideal for our camper van. I’d definitely stay here again and have already told others about this site.
★★★★★

Beautiful camp site, friendly atmosphere

Great place to go camping, facilities clean, Beautiful views - make sure you check out the whole field before picking a spot! Fire pits are really handy. Location is great, definitely recommend The Kitchen at Setley Ridge.

Very Relaxing Campsite

Teddy's Farm is the epitome of peace and quiet in a beautiful and very picturesque setting. The owner (Teddy) makes you feel very welcome and makes a personal visit to introduce himself, and also checks on you each night to make sure everything is OK and to generally check your welfare, which was so nice to see as he obviously cares about everyone. Everything on the campsite was laid out nicely and very straight forward and you are of course on the doorstep of the New Forest which is an amazing part of the world. Can't recommend this site highly enough where you can enjoy the views and let your kids explore and have good clean fun with never-ending fresh air!

This was a last minute booking and both me and my wife were so happy to find such a spacious, quiet and incredibly well run site.

We would have no hesitation to return next year, and we plan to. Thanks again Teddy!

Wonderful - Thank you Teddy !

We loved it despite of the bad luck with the weather. I would say the best wild camping we’ve experienced so far. Teddy is amazing, kind, helpful, attentive, I cannot say anything but the best . He replied quickly to my text about our “neighbours” loud music and came and checked we were ok even when I told him not to worry after they reduced the volume. And this was nearly midnight! He even helped us jump start our car when the battery went flat on our way home! Teddy to the rescue! Beautiful location and plenty of things to do. We visited local pubs and tea room. Very nice places and great food. Will definitely be back to explore the new forest a bit more as this time the weather didn’t let us enjoy it fully .
★★★★★

Brilliant Site, Great facilities

Loads of space, good facilities and well set up for the current situation.Our first camping experience together as Mum & daughter and we survived, even with the high winds, which Teddy kindly gave us advice for that evening and the tent stayed put! Signage could be a little better, we passed by the entrance once and picked up a better sign on the way back. As we are novice campers, we maybe needed a bit more guidance, I guess we could of asked, but a few pointers may of been helpful. Like that we were able to select our own plot and that there was no rush to leave on our last day. Love the New Forest and would certainly stay at Teddy's farm again
★★★★★

As close to nature as you can get

Lovely friendly team. Teddy delightful and couldn't do enough to advise and help us during very stormy weather. A great way to experience farm life and to contribute to diversity in modern farming. Showers great, atmosphere chilled and toilets very back to nature but OK. Loved sitting around our firepit listening to the sheep. Will be back. Thanks Teddy.

Lovely site

Great, relaxed, child friendly site. Lovely vibe running through the place and showers with the best view you could wish for! Only downside is the access road from the farm to the site was really uneven and boggy, no problem in a normal car, but bit a bit tricky in our old Campervan, that said wouldn’t put me off going back again.
★★★★★

A lovely site

We had a lovely couple of days at Teddy’s farm. The site itself is in a really convenient spot just outside Brockenhurst, we used it as a base to do some cycling in the new Forest (23 mile seaside ride), which virtually ran past the campsite. We really liked the site, it was really relaxed and friendly, we had nice families camping around us and the kids really enjoyed playing on their bikes up and down the fields. The thunderboxes worked really well and the campsite was really well organised for water and soap for washing. Teddy popped by to see us and was very helpful. I also liked the way that he checked in on everyone, as we were expecting quite high winds overnight on Thursday, so made sure that those in tents moved their cars to provide shelter. We had a great time, would recommend and will definitely come again.

Does what it says on the tin

This is basic camping at its best. A wide open field giving you plenty of space, clean (and not too smelly!) Composting toilets and hot water. Firepits and a ready supply of logs. All in a lovely setting..can get windy so make sure you do peg everyth8ng down firmly but the ground drains well if it rains so no squelcging about. Can also highly recommend renting a rib from Solent Ribs in Lymington for a great day out on the water ( you need your RYA level 2 certificate)
★★★★★

Wonderful weekend

Easy to find and spread over a huge area - it was easy to find a level pitch observing social distancing. Teddy was the perfect host & made sure we had everything we needed. Facilities clean, funky and perfectly adequate. We went to watch the perseid meteor shower but the weather let us down unfortunately. The superb site with respectful campers made up for it though, and we had a fabulous meal at the Monkey House pub on the Saturday - thoroughly recommended!
★★★★★

Great site - even when it's raining!

Loads of space to pitch. Facilities very clean, even the thunder boxes which sound questionable, but in reality it's just natural stuff going on, and not as smelly as you might think. Showers basic but hot and clean, and showering in the rain is a great experience. Talking of rain, even though we had torrential downpours the site drained very quickly and we had no issue with standing water. Locally Lymington is lovely, and the cycle routes across the New Forest are all easily accessible. Great family ride around the coast by the Lymington estuary. We ate at the local Red Lion pub, great food and beer, although we decided to drive as the walk was a bit further than we'd want to in the rain. Overall great, as long as you're happy going back to basics.

Great Camping Spot!

We have just returned from camping this weekend at Teddy's farm. Although the weather wasn't always on our side, we had a wonderful time! I really like how laid back and delightful Teddy is, nothing seems to be an issue. There was no set arrival/registration, in fact, they tell you to pitch anywhere at any time and HE comes to you! As they have opened the second field there is more than enough space for everyone. There were never any queues for the loos and you had a pre arranged shower slot (if wanted). We ordered some lamb sausages and a fire pit for Friday night and both were great, highly recommend! My only negative about the weekend was that there were two huge groups camping at the bottom of the field. Although Teddy did warn us that he thought they would be a rowdy bunch and to contact him if they did not keep the noise down, I felt that this tainted some of the younger family's trips as the noise continued well after midnight. This campsite was advertised as not the place for partying crowds and that noise should be kept to a minimum after a certain time so felt like this should have been better managed. Thank you Teddy!

Response from Teddy's Farm

Thank you for your positive review Amy. 

I'm sorry about the roudy group whom, as you pointed out, I suspected might be trouble.  We try and run a relaxed campsite here, treating people with a bit of respect in the hope everyone enjoys their stay.  For the vast majority this approach works, but I fully take on board your comments for 'those few' that don't heed what is clearly advertised on our website about this not being a roudy, party site.  All food for thought moving forwards!

Great location, no allocated spaces, so could be as far away from big groups if you wish to be. Only stayed for the night. We could leave the next day at our own leisure so didn't feel rushed.

Will defiantly recommend and hope to return soon.

First camping trip for us with a toddler, loads of space, hot water was a bonus with a toddler definitely will return. Only things for suggestion would be the levelling the drive a bit and the new app for showers is great but could do with a cancellation button so that if you don’t need you can free up for someone else to use.

Had a great stay at the farm. Although we only stayed for one night we had a lovely time. There is lots of space and you can set up where ever you like....so if you don't want to be near family groups you can go to a more quite area. The toilets take some getting use to...but I just wore my mask! It's so much nicer then the more commercial camps. We were left alone and were not hurried to leave at a certain time the next day. We will return.

Great time

Great base camp for what our group needed, 12 adults for the weekend, really enjoyed the outdoor showers on a evening, only con I’d say was that there was no hot water on the sat and Sunday but was tolerable and refreshing in the daytime as the weather was so hot would highly recommend and would come back in the future , thank you.

Great camping

We loved the large area which made it easy to distance our group from others. Peaceful location with easy access to New Forest. Loos were not ideal but cleaned every night - composting loos. We had our own loo easily emptied in chemical disposal point provided. Showers were a laugh - had to wear swimming costume as doors not fitted due to Covid restrictions - but hot and clean. Great for kids to ride around on bikes and very safe. Teddy was very attentive and present on site at night should there be any problems. Highly recommend the site. No luxury facilities but this is made clear on website.

Total bliss to spend the weekend outdoors in such peaceful surroundings

We had such a great weekend camping. Oodles of space available this year for kids (and grown ups) to run around safely, fire pit and logs available to hire, clean composting toilets but also easy and discreet access to chemical waste disposal if you bring your own loo. Hot water station for washing up, open air hot showers (showering outside at sunrise is magic), plenty of hand washing facilities round the site. We received a really useful email a few days before going with detailed information about the site. The setting was quiet, peaceful and just an all round lovely experience. We would absolutely recommend for kids and grown ups. (We found some great wild swimming and walking places listed in the Wild Guide that were within a 10 - 20 minute drive depending on where you go.)

Teddy's farm offers the most welcoming laid back approach to camping , chance to find your own peace and quiet although spoilt for choice with so much space . I was extra impressed that with the restrictions from corona virus Teddy had made the effort to source an alternative to the normal shower block situated in and old container and produced outdoor piping hot showers in the open air with just a straw bale for protection and your swim suit to protect your modesty ! It worked brilliantly and was a unique experience especially for my niece . Lots of space for children and dogs to explore and never felt overlooked . All in all a great place to be , cant wait to be back !.

A lovely relaxing week end

We came with a group of friends for the weekend and very much enjoyed the campsite and facilities. There were two fields and no nominated spots so we chose a more secluded corner with some shade. We hired a firepit which were available for £5 a night, and you could also buy bags of wood for it, a really nice touch. We also bought some lamb burgers which were made on site at the farm, delicious on the barbecue! A lot of effort went into making the site covid safe. An informative email about the social distancing and hygiene measures had been sent prior to our visit, and there were sign posts, clean compost toilets, water points with soap and outdoor showers which were really lovely. It was away from the roads but the only niggle was hearing the trains as it was close to the tracks. A beautiful location, all in all a wonderful experience in the New Forest.

Perfect relaxed campsite

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Teddy’s Farm. We were a group of 4 adults, spending our weekend cycling around the new forest and relaxing at the beach- the location perfect for both. The camping is over 2 fields, each field has composting toilets which were always clean- we were really impressed, and hay bale urinals which apparently were also great. The showers were brilliant, there is something about a warm shower outdoors. We hired a fire pit for the 2 nights, it was £5 to hire a night which we thought was really good. Gutted we didn’t read about the lamb burgers before we went! They have clearly spent a lot of time working in COVID measures, at all water points there was hand washing facilities and hand sanitiser was always available. We would thoroughly recommend staying and Teddy’s, we will definitely be returning.

Peaceful, great facilities, family friendly.

Just returned from a fabulous 2 nights at Teddy’s. A group of 5 families (22 in total with 12 children ranging in ages from 4-17) we booked after our usual campsite became a victim of COVID-19 and closed permanently. We’re really rather glad! Teddy’s is a beautiful location with 2 flat fields, short grass, composting loos (cleaned regularly), outdoor showers (hot and liberating!), hot water for washing up, logs and fire pits to buy/hire, freezer for ice block re freezing, no set pitches, recycling and rubbish facilities and the very friendly and accommodating Teddy! Lots of time, money and thought has gone into making this pop up site COVID friendly and it was a great treat to use brand new showers! We explored the beautiful local area, spent time on the beach in Milford-on-Sea and enjoyed each other’s company round the fire and in the spacious field. Co op a few minutes drive away too. We’re already planning our return!

Wonderful camping experience

We spent a whole week at Teddy's Farm and loved every minute of it. The facilities were basic but very clean and well attended. The farm has a wonderful relaxed atmosphere and there was plenty of space for the children to play and ride their bikes. Teddy remembers everyone and their requests, be that ice-blocks, fire wood for the following evening or delicious farm reared lamb burgers for your dinner! Teddy took the time to chat and get to know campers and he could offer recommendations if needed, the honesty shop is a lovely touch. The farm location is great, 5 minutes(by car) from both Lymington and Brockenhurst, 20 minutes from a lovely, dog friendly beach and easy access to Forest carparks for walks and bike rides. We will certainly be returning to Teddy's farm and look forward to finding out the dates the farm will be open next year so we can plan our next camping adventure! Thank you Teddy.

Friendly host quiet site with basic facilities

Teddy is really friendly and gave us a decent bottle of wine for the lack of working showers at the weekend. Quiet site except the group with the hideous mobile disco in the corner however they were quiet after 9. The site is very free and easy re pitching which is good but potentially too many people crowding in popular areas at the busier weekends and not leaving the gaps required by the t and cs but thankfully no snorers. A second field opened which was emptier just a shame more were not directed there sooner. Compost loos were clean could just do with a few more. All good overall and will return a great base for the new forest and beaches.

Very spacious ground and a very relaxed atmosphere

We arrived with another family for a two nights stay, Teddy was no where to be seen, drove to the field and settled camp. A few hours later, we met Teddy on his quad bike doing his round delivering fire pits and other items. Teddy is a very friendly guy, who makes his clientele feel very welcomed. We had a fantastic time, blessed by glorious weather and lots of space to pitch and play games. The compost toilets get some using to and we didn’t have hot showers as the boiler had broken down ( this wasn’t an issue as it was hot).Teddy apologised for the lack of hot water by giving to every pitch a bottle of wine. If you want glamping, this is not a campsite for you but if you want to go back to basic camping in a relaxing environment, Teddy’s farm ticks all the boxes. Thank you Teddy for being such a welcoming host.

Tranquil, unspoilt - a perfect place to camp

A friend and I spent two nights on Teddy's Farm with our two 13-year old sons. We were blessed with incredible weather. We loved camping at Teddy's - the showers are brilliant and there are all the washing facilities that you need - hot water constantly available. Using the firepits made for delightful evenings and seeing the night sky without light pollution was wonderful. Teddy is so friendly, helpful and willing to make anyone's stay lovely. We really enjoyed being there and would definitely go there again.

Perfect place for some down time

A great “down on the farm” site close to Lymington. A good, level field, with amenities close out hand. Excellent sustainable thunderboxes. Showers with plenty of hot water. A great honesty shop with excellent local information on hand. Teddy provides excellent care providing lamb, fire pits, kindling and good chat. Shame it’s only available 1 month of the year. I’ll be back next year.

Lovely, peaceful, well maintained campsite

I came here with my niece for a couple of nights. We loved it, the campsite is lovely, with a view of the sheep in the field alongside a very clean, well looked after and spacious campsite. Very reasonable, great for firepits, nice clean hot showers, and The Thunderbox loos were Fine to use. You don’t need anything else to sleep under a blanket of stars . See you next year Teddy !!

Great campsite

Very tranquil campsite with lots of space to play. Hot showers and clean toilets (genius design with no toilet smell). Teddy was a great host, helpful and friendly. Perfect location too with lots to do in the new forest.

Peaceful, family friendly site

Lovely, quiet site in a beautiful area. Nice, hot showers and fab compost loos which were kept spotless throughout our 2 night stay, despite the site being fairly busy. The site is very spread out so even though it was quite full, it maintained its tranquility. Teddy is charming and a great host, he even came down to drop off some more firewood when we rang him at 9pm.
