Why stay here ...

Our CL is a 1.25 acre site with a tranquil riverside setting on our small working farm. It is almost half a mile from the road. There is a footpath through the farm over the Mill Pool and River Allen,(a privately owned trout stream) through Damerham lakes into woodland and open fields.

The site gently slopes towards the river and has hard standings at each of the 5 electric hook-up points. Adults, children and pets are all welcome. As cattle and sheep graze adjacent fields, dogs must be on a lead at all times and children supervised.

We have toilets and a shower and washroom available for our visitors, all inclusive in the pitch price. Fordingbridge, four miles away is the nearest town, on the edge of the New Forest. It offers Supermarket shopping and pub restaurants.

There is coarse fishing available on site 500 yards from the farmyard across a hay meadow, 8 to 10 lb carp have been caught in the 2012 season.

We also offer caravan storage for short or long term periods on the farm in a secure site away from the certified location.

Our price per pitch is £16.00 for one van and awning, two persons and one car. We charge a £1 per extra person, car or visitor. We also charge a £1 per dog.

A Lovely Place to Stay

We stayed here over the weekend - what a delightful little place! It was stormy and windy, but we were sheltered and cosy on this site. We loved everything about it. The welcome was friendly, polite and caring. The toilets and showers were beautifully clean and completely adequate. The hardstanding was good, with EHU right behind each unit. There were 5, well-spaced pitches. We walked to Sandleheath, Damerham and Alderholt along delightful footpaths - some beside the river. We would thoroughly recommend this site, and we will definitely be back soon.

Another return visit

When we first had a motor home we came here about four times in a year. Since then we have been far and wide but felt it was time for a return visit. So here we are, back again! An hour from home but could be anywhere. One of the reasons we love this place is the peace and tranquility. We have seen so many insects, butterflies and birds just sitting in the sunshine. There are plenty of places of interest to walk or cycle to. The local pubs have always been good. The Compasses is a half walk up a bridleway from the site. Alderholt Mill do lovely cakes, especially the scones!!! Fordingbridge also has some good hostelries. The Dorset Heavy Horse centre worth a visit especially if you have children. There is plenty of room between units and the hardstandings are adequate for vans and caravans. If you need your awning up just park nearer the grass. They are not brand new but they do the job, I have certainly seen worse if another review has you worried. There are two clean showers (not often you get two at a CL) and two toilets. There is another private field just up the drive which has been useful for the weekends the CL is fully booked and this has not impacted on the CL in any way during our five visits here. The owner provides toilet chemicals pre mixed and suitable for the waste system here, empty yours of chemicals before you come. It has been lovely to return to the well run, tidy site I remembered. I would definitely recommend this place as most of the reviewers do. We forgot how much we loved it and how relaxed we feel after our visit.

Nice location, but in need of some TLC

This site is in a superb location. We stayed here for four nights in September. There is a half mile track to the site. Halfway along this track we wondered if we were in the right place! The signpost on the road needs improving. The CL field had really long grass. We were told that it was cut last week. (Clearly not) All five hardstandings were in a very poor state. Vertually disintegrated. They had not been maintained. The other four caravans had chosen not to put up there awnings because of the mud and general poor state of the pitches. Parts of the field were waterlogged and therefore churned up by cars. There was another field that the owner let out to non caravan club members. (The grass in this fiels was short!) They had use of the shower and toilets also. With a fair amount of investment, this site could be wonderful. Sadly, there is no way we would return. Had the previous reviews been more accurate, we would not have chosen this site. Such a shame.

Lovely isolated spot

We stayed here for a week in August and had a wonderful stay. The site is spacious and the views and countryside nearby are delightful. The facilities on the site are (IMO) good for a CL, the toilets were basic but always clean and the showers more than adequate. For those wanting a flavour of the site I've made a short video which I hope you'll find useful. https://youtu.be/OmuvFWJ2Mwc

Perfect seclusion from the world

This is a beautiful site, extremely well maintained and with excellent facilities for a CL. We arrived after prolonged wet weather and the grass was indeed very wet. This was not a problem for our small campervan but if you have a large caravan or motorhome, it may well be worth checking conditions with the owner before arriving! We just wanted to escape for a few days and this was a perfect choice.
