Beware of owners dog!!!

If you book this site please beware of the site owners dog!! We ended up at A and E! Owner was very dismissive of incident and told me not to bother with A and E! Incident has left my leg scarred!!! Police involved! We would not stay here again. Would not recommend this site to anyone!

Response from the Club:

We are very sorry to hear of your experience. This CL was closed for a period of time after the incident. However, following the owner carrying out a full risk assessment and putting a range of measures in place the site is now open again for members.

Another lovely holiday at Oak Cottage

We have just returned from our 3rd holiday at Oak Cottage and have booked for two weeks again next year. Sue is very friendly ,informative and welcoming. The site is excellent value for money,at £14 per night in a pricey area of the country. After many holidays in both the New Forest and Bournemouth areas, we now favour it as our "go to site". It's so convenient for visits to places all along the coast from Lymington to Poole. The Walkford pub is just up the road with seating areas inside and out and reasonably priced. Highcliffe castle on the way to Mudeford has beautiful grounds and a zig zag path down to the beach. All in walking or cycling distance . The owners have done a brilliant job over the lockdown to generally neaten up the pitches and move the water tap closer to the pitches. We love it here !Such a relaxing holiday Thank you Sue & John Glynis and Nick

Another pleasant stay

This is my 5th stay at Oak Cottage and we have always been made to feel most welcome. Ideally situated close to Highcliffe and Walford (within a short walking distance) and a bus route right outside the site entrance to Lymington or the other way to Bournemouth. Booking well in advance is recommended as there are so few other options for miles around. Amenities on site are very clean, tidy and accessible and are all one needs and would expect on a CL site. We look forward to our next visit.

Wonderful site, Back again.

Back to Oak Cottage once more. missed last year due to family illness, but glad to find this CL is still the same. We will definitely be returning. I MUST disagree with the two very negative reviews posted on here recently ! Although the access could be described as "a bit tight", we have a 7.48m caravan and a Land Rover Discovery 4, and get into and out of here with NO problem. And as for crossing the road being "Dangerous"..... well, it is no different to any other road in the UK.! Considering it is an adults only CL, I think the reviewer must have been thinking of another site to reckon the road is dangerous to cross with children ! ???? Noise from the railway is not intrusive, there is an embankment which takes away most of the noise. You may get the odd owl visiting the site at night, but that is one of the joys of countryside living. Anyone who has not been here before, do not let those two negative reviews put you off. Same as anywhere else, if you have not been there before, take your time, get out of your car and HAVE A LOOK before manoeuvering. If you need to, don't feel any shame in asking for help, most other caravanners will be pleased to oblige, everyone had to start somewhere. I tried to post a review on here earlier in the week, but for some reason, it did not register.!!
