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.

One of the best

Furzehill Farm
We stay at CLs rather than formal sites wherever we can so we know what to expect. This is one of the best! It is ideally situated, very well kept and the pitches are huge. We had dinner 25 meters from our caravan and we were still on our pitch. Access is very easy. Each pitch has 16A and its own tap. Grey water is drained into the hedge. There is very little to do once you have set up. It is very quiet except for the ever present birdsong. Richard has a background in ecology and will happily talk about the local wildlife and the importance of his “rewilded”areas. We have visited the site twice and will certainly return.

Just what we needed.....

Furzehill Farm
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

Furzehill Farm
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.
