Why stay here ...
Valesmoor Farm, situated on the southern edge of the New Forest principally provides DIY livery facilities for 25 horses/ponies and their owners. We do not provide a purpose-built Club site.
Access to the site is off the B3058. While the entrance is wide, access is generally over a cattle grid, and down the driveway through our front garden towards the house.
The largest motorhomes are incongruous in such a setting, and those with twin-axle caravans may wish to approach us from the opposite direction and enter through the gate or over the cattle grid.
During the period from May to the end of October, for use as a Club Certificated Location, we release a large, slightly sloping, well-drained paddock, with electric hook-up points, adjacent to the back garden. Although there is considerable horsey activity elsewhere the site is quiet and peaceful and ideal for those who love animals, landscaped gardens and nature. Dogs and children, both well-behaved, are welcomed and there is plenty of play room. Pitches are allocated to optimise and ensure fairness of space provision.
Drinking water is available in the paddock and other amenities - shower, toilets, dustbins and chemical waste disposal point are in the vicinity of the house. When Club members arrive we personally show them round and invite them to drive to the forecourt to access these if this is more convenient. As one side of the paddock is lined by mainly mature oak trees, which attract wildlife, we also invite Club members to park further into the paddock if they so wish. The pitch price quoted is for four people.
The paddock is mown although a 'rough' area is left at the bottom for dog-owners' use. However, crossing the road provides direct Forest access for the latter, and the gently undulating New Forest landscape, which is covered by numerous conservation designations and provides opportunities for horse-riding and cycling. 'The Rising Sun' pub is within easy walking distance and children are welcomed.
There are supermarkets, cafes, etc., and public transport in New Milton which is a short drive away. Larger conurbations like Christchurch/Bournemouth or Southampton can be driven to in well under an hour and the Isle of Wight is easily reached from Lymington.
Extensive beaches some flat/sandy some pebble-strewn and others surmounted by cliffs are only a few miles away and like the local villages often provide historic features, e.g. Hurst Spit, and the wildlife lakes at Keyhaven which are historically associated with salt-mining.
Electric amperage: 16

We last stayed on here 5years ago its a good cl, Large field and plenty of room on pitches, forest just across the road and good pub within 200meters,shower and toilets basic but very clean what more could you ask, owners very friendly and Mr M very interesting when you get talking to him, cl is based in excellent location lots of walking or close to excellent beaches which some do allow dogs on, will definitely babe back again in the future.
Previous reviewers are spot on. Very peaceful location even though a well use road runs past the house as the CL is sited to the rear. Take care on entering as it could be tight for large outfits. It's a large paddock that easily swallows the units, not quite flat but easy enough to find a flat area to pitch. The shower is coin operated, £0.20 per 3 minutes, and there are 2 toilets as well as the usual other facilities, (didn't spot a m/h Emptying point). The Rising Sun pub serve good quality standard pub fare and is a 250 yard walk across the common. All other local amenities are nearby and plenty of interesting places to visit. An excellent place to stay and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
