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.

This was only our second CC CL we have stayed at and we were not disappointed. It was a lovely summer sunny weekend and the site gave us the opportunity to have a really quiet time. It was an ideal site for a quick break and the ability to walk our two terriers in the New Forest was brilliant. The site slopes slightly and blocks were needed. I also felt it would be tricky too if it had been wet at all. The water tap is at the top of the field along with the waste water disposal. The separate waste bins for recycling are located at the entrance gate. Overall this was a neat tidy site overlooking another field and woods with apple trees along one edge. We bought some lovely spice chilli from Richard on one of our walks. We will be back for more dog walking and to the pubs next time!
