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.

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!

Our short stay was perfect! Slightly tricky location to find, but this meant it was a lovely quiet site, with beautiful views. There were plenty of facilities - well-kept toilets, adequate water points, etc. Quiet at night, great social distancing, and really friendly staff on site.

Fantastic site

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!

Fantastic couple of nights

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. With covid restrictions, the facilities were still excellent....hot showers and clean toilets. Teddy was great always said hello and available to help at any time. We would have no hesitation to return next year, and we plan to. Thanks again Teddy!

Lovely spacious and open campsite

Lovely site with plenty of space for kids to ride bikes and play. Showers were very alfresco (would have liked a little more privacy) but warm and refreshing. Plenty of water points and great location for the ferry to the Isle of Wight, local pubs and bike rides. Would definitely stay again
★★★★★

Amazing site

Really nice site, good facilities and great location. Lamb I bought inside was amazing too
★★★★★

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. The toilets take a bit getting use to....my mask came in handy. A lovely place if you want a nice quiet break, lots of friendly happy campers including us! Will defiantly recommend and hope to return soon.

Lovely weekend in lovely setting

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. Really enjoyed our stay

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.

With a young family this was our first proper camping trip together and we had a wonderful weekend! There was plenty of space and Teddy was super helpful and would kindly check on us each day. We’d love to come back! The only niggly criticism is that the track leading from the farm to the camping field is very uneven and scraped the underside of my beloved car along the route. It didn’t seem to do any damage though fortunately. However it would be amazing if this could be evened out, even just with some gravel put down.

I can't recommend this campsite highly enough! Basic but spotless facilities; a stunning setting surrounded by giant oak trees, woodpeckers, owls and buzzards; and plenty of space to social distance and for privacy, even on the hottest weekend of the year. You can purchase diced lamb as well as burgers and sausages from the farm and they were all delicious. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.

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.)
★★★★★

The campsite is very basic and very spread out. Absolutely no chance of being on top of any other group during covid. Composting toilets are the norm these days so no qualms about that.

A lovely family-friendly campsite with plenty of space and clean facilities. The outdoor hot showers in particular were fantastic, much nicer than regular campsite showers. Teddy was very welcoming and friendly. They even provided a freezer to put our ice blocks in. Lots of places to explore nearby, Brockenhurst and Lymington in particular are lovely towns.

The most peaceful , and relaxing camp site. 1 night definitely wasn't enough cant wait to come back

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 !.

This is my second time camping at Teddy's and we wasn't disappointed. We all felt very save with the covid measures in place and the toilets were cleaned regularly. There is plenty of space between people camping as there was two very large fields. The showers were hot and access to a hot tap for washing up water. There is plenty of places to visit in the area and the beach is only a short trip down the road.

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.

Lovely clean space, brilliant location

We came as a last minute booking over the bank holiday weekend and had a brilliant time. Teddy was really friendly and welcoming. It was a Clean open space, good location and fire pits were available To hire, which was a real bonus. The facilities although basic were more than adequate for one night. Would recommend

Excellent campsite

The thing which makes this campsite special is the farmer teddy. It's very relaxed yet safe and secure for kids. Teddy has an amazing ability to remember everyone and will make sure you have everything you need. The showers were not working so he gave everyone a free bottle of wine. Good wine I might add. Would definitely recommend.

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.
