Why stay here ...

Furzehill Farm CL is a peaceful site on a New Forest Smallholding just a mile from the Avon Valley. The site is a large, gently sloping field and the pitches are all lawned. There is a hard surface access road and electric hookups with ample space for awnings and parking alongside the caravans. The pitches overlook a pasture field where you may see riding horses, wild deer and a fascinating range of wildlife.

Our CL is one of the few that are actually within the New Forest boundary. Once you step outside the gate you have access to hundreds of acres of diverse scenery.  Ancient woods, valley Mires, lowland Heath, lofty Plantations, river Estuaries and gentle Coast are all there for you to enjoy. There are good pubs and restaurants within walking distance. An excellent farm shop is just half a mile down the road and the Market town of Ringwood is only 4.5 miles away.

Furzehill Farm CL is very well situated for exploring the New Forest National Park and surrounding areas of Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire including wonderful sandy beaches of Bournemouth (13 miles),  historic cathedral and market  town of Salisbury (15 miles), Southampton (20 miles) and Lymington (15 miles) from which there is a short ferry trip to the Isle of Wight.

Richard and Sue are always happy to chat about the area and it's wildlife...but, unless you've got half an hour to spare keep Richard off the subject of the 'Boiling mound'

Well behaved dogs and children are very welcome.

Just what we needed.....

First experience with our caravan - wanted to revisit my childhood which was caravan holidays in the middle of the New Forest walking, riding & relaxing. Lovely site with immediate access onto the forest. Very friendly, informative hosts. Rained quite hard during our 5 nights there but easy exit due to access track. Lots of walking - short or long, easy or challenging but actually we loved the peace & quiet. We will be back soon.

Lovely stay

We stayed at Furzehill Farm for a week in August 2020 with our two children (9 & 4yrs old). Richard the owner could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. The water point and rubbish bin on the pitch was a big plus for us. Another reviewer mentioned road noise, yes there is the occasional road noise but to be honest it really did not bother us as the area is so lovely and peaceful. The children loved exploring the beautiful surroundings and enjoyed visiting the little wooden bridge hidden in the trees which is a short walk up towards The Cabin, just before the road bends to the left. We used "What Three Words" as advised which took us straight to the site. Thank you for a wonderful break. We look forward to staying here again in the future.

Still a great CL

A great CL in a great location which I reviewed favourably on 3 Sep 14. The CL borders and is above and partially screened from its access road. There is intermittent use of this road by other vehicles but they are relatively slow moving and we think unobtrusive. On our most recent stay and for the first time, we had trouble getting off our pitch due to the wet conditions. When we had a caravan we were able to position our tow car so that its drive wheels were on the central track before hitching up. With our new motorhome, which is small but heavy and not 4x4, we struggled to get up the slight incline onto the track. This is something to bear in mind if it is wet.
