Sadly not what it was

We have visited this site on a few occasions but not for a few years now. Sadly our view is that the site has gone down hill under the new management. The hot tub and pool are no longer available and , most importantly for us, the access directly from the site to Avon Heath is now closed. So what are we left with... a basic field, not very level, a tired and dirty toilet block and some good security gates. Overall we felt very little had been done to maintain the property in recent years, and to add to the woes the plot of land next door is being developed so currently looks very messy. Not recommended

A++++++ lovely place,

Just had 3 nights there, very welcoming nice people, good facilities, lovely little site, as people has said is some road noise and the kennels but this really isn’t any hassle, fire pits and wood to burn supplied, along with nice benches and shelters to sit out in, would recommend it 150% and definitely be back again, thank you and hopefully see you soon, Simon and Amy,

Another excellent stay

We love coming to this site as it’s small and private behind automated gates. Wendy and her family make you feel so welcome. The site is smack bang between the New Forest and the stunning beaches of Bournemouth and Sandbanks. This site is well worth a visit

7 days stay in end of October

We just spent 7 nights at Little Paddock and had a great time. Access roads were a doddle and the electric main gate gives a nice secure feeling. Wendy opened the gate and came to greet us to show us the available pitches and was flexible as to where we went with only one pitch reserved for some regular customers (a good sign in itself). Facilities on the site are fine with a nice clean toilet and shower block, good hook up, drinking water tap next to the toilet block, and all the usual disposal facilities. I must admit though, the grey water and chemical waste could've been better. It looked like folk were using the grey water disposal for emptying the toilet and the chemical waste was a bog sat over a drain that you poored into. We've stayed on only 3 CL's now and this setup was the least clean and well setup for easy discreet use. However, the Little Paddock site is a lovely picturesque place and has a real zen garden feel to it with a few little shelters and log burners for the evenings. My favourite thing was the beautiful Weeping Willow trees about the place! Couple of other things to note as I feel these reviews are here to be honest and helpful for caravanners to make the most informed decision possible. The site is very close to a very fast dual carriageway and there seems to be no shortage of boy racers and motorbikes. They go fast and loud into the evening but it will only bother you if your after real peace and seclusion. It's not so noisy it disturbs sleep, just not as quiet as you might like. The site is next to a kennel though they only bark at feeding time which didn't bother us. It says on the CC site that WIFI is available but in fact is only available if you have a signal booster of stand outside near the owners house. We'd stay again if passing through.

Great

From the moment we pulled up to the electric secure gates we though wow. The pitches as all grass with hookup separate shower and toilet blocks which good,clean and fresh smelling. There is an information hut with leaflet of attractions and also a supermarket locations for the area. Outdoor games for children like tennis. The the adults there are benches outside to relax as well as bbqs and small log burners for you to use which was nice.  There is a dog kennels next door but this didn't bother us and the dogs only bark at feeding time.  It is easily accessible and we used it as our base for visiting Weymouth and Bournemouth  Recommended would use again
