The Owner Says
About Shelley Oaks Farm
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).

Shelley Oaks Farm is located at Shelley Lane, Ower, Romsey, Hampshire SO51 6AS
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.
