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!

Delightful CL

We only stayed here one night when picking up our new caravan, a lovely site. Easy to find, no narrow roads to contend with, just had a slight moment of panic when I realised we were blocking the road as we pulled up in front of the gates, but as Rob pointed out, it was a very quiet road with little traffic. Lovely flat field and a couple of hardstandings. The shower and toilet were spotlessly clean and cosily warm on a chilly morning. As mentioned in previous reviews, feels very secure due to the high entrance gates. Candace and Rob very helpful, both with the booking process and welcome on arrival. Delightful.

Great site for children's safety.

We spent 2 nights here and had a lovely time. We especially liked the security of the site as the kids could run around and play and we didn’t really have to worry about their safety. Also the location is fantastic and there are some lovely pubs in close proximity, a park for the kids to play in, shops and a fish and chips shop in short walking distance. The shower and toilet block was very nice and well maintained. We didn't notice very much road noise although this may be different during term time. Overall we were very pleased with our stay, and would definitely come back again.

Lovely site for relaxing.

Spent 9 nights here at this lovely site. Once school run is over it is quiet, the odd car noise only now and again. £1 for 5 mins for the shower is a bit steep (£1 for 10 min would give less mobile users more time to get in and sorted) but Rob and Candace have done a good job of making it really nice and keeping it clean. The shower floor is very slippery though and needs a non slip mat. The security of the site is a plus as once through the large full height gates, no one can see in. Very close to all amenities and lovely bakers just up the road. Local fish and chip shop not so great, thick batter to make fish appear bigger, wouldn’t suggest. Great site for exploring the New Forest and easy access to and from the A31. Ringwood has great selection of pubs, eateries and the Conservative Club is worth a visit, friendly, cheap drink and good food. Owners have installed new hard standing so will be back even if the weathers isn’t great! Would whole heartedly recommend this site 👍

Great Place to chill out

We wanted to get away locally for a long weekend with the dog. After reading previous reviews we chose Old Farm. On arrival, through the gates on the left, the entrance is a bit tight but fairly straight forward. We were met with a tidy well looked after site. We were welcomed by Candace and she gave us some information about the local area dog walks. The site is flat so the set up was straight forward. I think the site would be a bit cosy with 5 vans but you would still have enough room. A big plus is that the site is out of view once the gates are shut. I am not one to pay for a shower as I think that this should be included in the tariff. I made an exception here as I have stayed in hotels with worse shower facilities. The facility is new and very clean, the owners have obviously invested a few bob in the shower and toilet area. There is a bit of occasional road noise that will be annoying if you want it to be. It didn't bother us. There is a good walk for our elderly dog which took about 45 minutes. Apparently there are longer walks. All in all this is a great site and well positioned to visit the local areas. This site is up there with the better sites we have visited over the last few years.
