Why stay here ...

Amberwood CL is situated on the Northern fringe of the New Forest National Park with direct access to the National Trust Commons and Forest where the horses, cattle, pigs and donkeys graze.

Our site is trying to capture the spirit of how caravanning used to be, a large manicured grass lawn with woodland and wild flower meadows and an abundance of wildlife rarely seen in one place, ideal if you just want to sit back and read a book or maybe cast a line in our well stocked coarse fishing lake.

Facilities include a water point, chemical closet disposal point and dry waste area but no EHU although battery charging is available.

Please be aware that we are an adults only site due to the close proximity of the fishing lake.

Our local pub is a short stroll away and also in the vicinity is a service station with a good convenience store.

We are within easy reach of the maritime city of Southampton and the beautiful sandy beaches of Bournemouth.

Facilities on site ...

  • Battery charging

Relaxing stay at a great CL

Amberwood
We loved our 2 night stay here, it's the best site we've stayed at so far. The site is beautifully maintained, with pretty scenery in and around the site. We enjoyed walks around the fishing lake, woods and fields, and the direct access to the New Forest across Cadnam Common is great for dog walking. Mark and his wife/partner (so sorry to have forgotten her name!) are so welcoming and friendly, they accommodated us at short notice, and popped round to see us while out walking with their dogs, which was lovely. Our own dogs had a great time too. We felt very relaxed during our stay, and definitely hope it won't be too long before we can book again.

In the Forest

Amberwood
Excellent site if you enjoy walking in the New Forest. The site provides direct access to Cadnam common, a beautiful area that we'd never been to before, despite having lived on the edge of the Forest and done a lot of exploring over the years. The description on the website is very accurate. There is a large flat short grassed area that is enclosed with a stock proof fence. Just beyond this is a large fishing lake and from there a gate out onto the open heath where there are ponies, donkeys, sheep and pigs. Access from the M27 is relatively easy. There is a bit of single track road but with plenty of passing places and there is a little distant road noise - I mention these in the interests of completeness but overall it's a great little CL

Secluded spot in an unspoilt part of the New Forest

Amberwood
Amberwood is in the less touristy part of the New Forest and yet is very much IN the forest. You'll likely be greeted with wild horses and donkeys outside the entrance as you pull in. The common with more roaming horses can be directly accessed from the rear of the site after a pleasant walk past the sizeable fishing lake. Access from the nearby M27 makes arrival easy and the noise from the Motorway is generally more like wind in the trees and didn't bother me at all despite me normally being very sensitive to noise. Mark the owner is very friendly and relaxed and the large fairly level field means that even when fully booked there's still plenty of space. Our stay was in early April so trees were not in leaf and very few wild flowers but should look even more glorious in spring. As always I've made a short video of the site that can express it's beauty far better than I can in words. https://youtu.be/vHZU1a-nCRM

Fabulous one night stay

Amberwood
We chose this site for a one night stay on the way to Lymington for the Isle Of Wight Ferry. We arrived late evening on 19th Aug so did not meet Mark the owner. The site was easy to find the grass was neatly mowed and all amenities easily found. We paid our fees via the honesty box on site. We were up early the next day to get our 7.30 ferry. On leaving the site we saw New Forrest Ponies and deer, so beautiful. Thank you Mark for a very brief but lovely stay

Wonderful site

Amberwood
Had a couple of nights here and it was lovely, Mark is just the loveliest owner and everything is so laid back and relaxed , this is how it should be. Beautifully mown grass with no clippings to find it’s way back in the van, water and CDP easily accessible , walks directly onto the open forest and very easy access from the main road. A very friendly and welcoming CL and looking forward to a return visit. Thank you Mark.
