Why stay here ...

Old Farm lies just within the beautiful New Forest National Park whilst being only a short walk to the local community and its amenities. It has been a Club member site for over 20 years now, and we are proud to call it our home.

Set on a half acre level secluded site, with electric points for all pitches. There is one hard standing for use out of season or if the ground is very soft. A new shower and toilet block with adjacent service point have been created and opened in time for the 2017 season.  

The price for your pitch includes electric, 2 adults, awning, children and pets. Dogs must be kept on a lead on site, as per club rules. We try to do all we can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible - please just ask if there’s anything we can do to help.

Its very easy to walk or cycle into the New Forest from the site. The area is ideal for serious walkers and those happy to stroll, and with the New Forest offering a large network of cycle routes, both on and off road cyclists are well catered for too. The Avon Valley Path is a well documented route that connects Christchurch and Salisbury, which passes right through Ringwood. If you’d like to borrow a map, please ask. There are nature reserve lakes close by too, including well known Blashford Lakes for those interested in bird watching and wildlife, and permits are available in Ringwood for the nearby fishing lakes and rivers. For the more adventurous, there are two outdoor watersports centres and Go Ape at Moors Valley Country Park.

There’s a small parade of shops which includes a Tesco’s Express, cashpoint, bakery and off licence close by. There’s also a great pub within 5 minutes walk - there are lots of other lovely pubs in the area too, and we’d be happy to suggest some. 

Ringwood itself is an easy 30 minute stroll from the site, which boasts a variety of interesting shops, plenty of places to eat and drink, a Sainsburys and Waitrose, and we even have our own brewery!  Ringwood Market is on a Wednesday and Hampshire Farmers Market once a month on a Saturday. There is a good bus service connecting Ringwood to Bournemouth, Christchurch, Salisbury and Southampton and there is a local service connecting Poulner to Ringwood. Please ask us for any latest bus timetables.

We’re very easy to find from the A31. Some Sat Nav systems appear to have a little difficulty finding exactly where we are, so please include Cowpitts Lane in your destination. The Digital TV signal isn’t very strong, so we recommend you bring an amplifier.

Candace and Rob look forward to welcoming you!

Lovely small New Forest site

Old Farm
We enjoyed a three night stay here in September 2021. The CL is lovely, with large, flat, well separated pitches, easily accessible and with good facilities nearby. We used our own sanitation but the toilet and shower looked modern and very clean. The waste disposal facilities worked well - always a bonus! As others have said, the Tesco and bakery down the road were useful for a top up shop without moving the van. We spent one day walking and one day cycling in the New Forest and were pleased at how easy it was to get to the open countryside. We have stayed on larger sites in the Forest but preferred the smaller, quieter feel to this site especially at the weekend. The owners, Candace and Rob, are very pleasant and helpful so we can definitely recommend this site and hope to return another time.

Excellent small site

Old Farm
Lovely large pitches all with some shade and well marked out by areas of longer grass. Tesco, bakers, off licence and fish and chip shop 5 minutes walk as is a vet, dentist and doctors! Easy 25 minute walk into Ringwood or take the circular bus. Plenty of walks nearby with the New Forest about 20 minutes. Couldn't be more convenient for those who don't wish to drive anywhere. Rob and Candace were very helpful and welcoming. We will be back.

Wonderful first experience of a CL site

Old Farm
This is the first time my family and I have stayed on a CL site and we were very impressed. Booking was straightforward and from the moment we arrived there was nothing we could fault. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival and shown to our extremely spacious, neatly presented pitch. Two toilets (one with shower) were available for our use, both clean and well-maintained. A small parade of shops was only a short walk away, which included a Tesco Express and good quality fish and chip shop. Old Farm was the perfect, peaceful place to relax and unwind and we look forward to returning again in the future. Thank you all for your kind hospitality.

A GREAT CL NEAR THE NEW FOREST

Old Farm
We stayed at this CL in June 2021, the facilities are very good and the site is very well kept. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. Our only very minor comment is that on our pitch there was some road noise early morning due to commuter traffic, although it was not particularly intrusive for the rest of the day. The site is great for cyclists as there are a number of New Forest cycle routes nearby. Overall a great site which I have no hestiation in recommending to other members.
