About Shelley Oaks Farm

Suitable For

Tents, small campervans, families – yes. Motorhomes, caravans, stag and hen dos, dogs – no.


There's plenty for families to do in the local area, not least taking bikes and heading in to the New Forest National Park, which has a host of good car-free cycle trails and footpaths that offer a good way of seeing the native deer and New Forest ponies. Paultons Park is a five-minute drive away, while it's also less than 10 to the picturesque market town of Romsey, home to Miss Moody's Tudor Tea Rooms and other historic delights. Miss Moody, the last owner of Moody’s Gunshop, ran a traditional English Tea Room both before and after the Second World War. Tea is still served in bone china teacups with a selection of cakes on offer in a quaint Tudor cottage. Also in the centre of Romsey lies the The Tipsy Pig Craft Alehouse (01794 501521), which offers an extremely impressive collection of ales to choose from. No fewer than seven National Trust sites are within 20 miles, including the beautiful Mottisfont, a 15-minute drive away. New Forest Wildlife Park is a 10–15-minute drive away, as well as indoor-climbing centre Golden Gecko Climbing (ages five and above).

The Mortimer Arms (023 8081 4379) is a family-friendly pub a two minute drive away and has a beer garden and serves Sunday roasts.

Excellent experience

Very spacious campsite in a great location for exploring the new forest. The amenities are new and spotlessly clean. Really safe and other campers were friendly. My son spent hours cycling round the site and one of the great things is that he was always in view. Only downside was that you could hear a little bit of traffic noise from the nearby road but that didn’t really detract from a lovely site. Thanks Caroline for your hospitality!

A Great Stay

The campsite is everything we wanted for a little break in the New Forest. The campsite is spacious, the showers are warm, and the scenery is gorgeous. The best part though was our host Caroline. She was so friendly and accommodating, and on one occasion even sorted us out with firewood at 9pm. I can’t recommend this site enough!

Fantastic campsite, great location

From start to finish the owners of the campsite could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The site was perfect, large open meadows for the children, and woodland to explore. The new shower block was perfect, and cleaned regularly throughout the day to keep it clean. There was plenty of space between the pitches which meant that although we could have friendly chat with other families we weren’t on top of each other. Perfect in every way, would highly recommend! The only minor thing that would have made our stay more relaxed would have been a few plugs to charge devices. We stayed for 4 nights and it would have been useful to be able to charge phones/watches during our stay. Instead we were forced to go and eat some delicious pizza at a local restaurant and charge the phones whilst we were there :)

Fantastic fun family camping

Perfect base for New Forest exploring and trips to the beach. Caroline and Chris were extremely friendly and suggested some fantastic pubs nearby! Facilities great and clean. Lots and lots of space for the kids We will be back!

Great camping site

We had a lovely two night stay. Pitches we're far apart so that was great. Caroline is very sweet and easygoing. Toilets are super clean and showers are hot. Great traile to the new forest, beautiful setting. Downside is the road is close by so you can hear a bit of the hissing sound, but you get used to it quickly and the camp site is beautiful. Also, make sure you get the bus that drop you right in front of the farm otherwise you won't be able to get there by foot.

Getting There

Easy access by road: From M27 junction 2 take the A36 north towards Salisbury. Head straight over the next roundabout then after a quarter of a mile turn right into Shelley Lane. Shelley Oaks Farm is the first track on the left. Watch out for the farm entrance as Sat Navs tends to take you too far down the lane.

The train station in Romsey is a 10-minute taxi ride away. The ‘Salisbury Reds’ X7 Southampton to Salisbury bus route passes the end of Shelley Lane, with request stops on each side of the road.
