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!

Very Enjoyable Stay

Just spent a lovely 3 days on this CL site. Candace and Rob were very welcoming and attentive. Excellent cycling and walking on the door step. Facilities good and very clean. Would thoroughly recommend a visit.

Hidden Gem

Old Farm
Looking forward to visiting again after our first experience. We received a warm welcome from Candace on our arrival. Site was very quiet and relaxing. There are good walks into the forest and Ringwood via the Avon Valley Path. Local amenities including pub, shops and takeaway are only a 10 minute walk. Pitches are level and a decent size. We will be back.

Not for us .........

Old Farm
Firstly I must point out that our review is based on our stay during the strange times we are currently living in ........... The site is easy to find, not to far off A31 but if your towing entering the site can be a challenge as your unit will straddle the road while you open the gates. Once through the main gates there is a further gate to negotiate to enter the field, neither gates are very wide so expert driving is required. As stated in other reviews the pitches are very big & the site is sheltered by trees & fences, which is ideal if it is windy but for us it felt to enclosed. I can’t comment on the facilities as they were closed due to Covid-19 rules. The London Tavern was recommended as a venue to eat but unfortunately they didn’t serve food the night we were there (Tuesday), we bought a takeaway meal from The White Heart which I could highly recommend. My biggest grip was the cost, £20 for one night, no reduction in fees even though the only facilities available were EHU, water tap & toilet emptying & as this was an overnight transit stop for us we barely used any, although I did read that the showers are actually operated via a coin box which would add to the cost of the stay. I was of the belief that CL sites were a cheaper solution with just the necessary facilities & my understanding that the national VAT cut in place was being passed onto the customer, certainly not the case at Old Farm. TV reception was poor but mobile good. So in summary this site maybe good for some but not one we will revisited.

Just brilliant

Old Farm
Stayed here twice, and very much looking forward to staying again in the future. Hidden away by fencing and high trees this is a perfect site to explore Ringwood and the New Forest within easy reach of the bustling town of Ringwood and just off the main drag. Facilities are first class, spotless and well maintained. Run by a charming family who make it their business to ensure you're welcome and informed. Level good sized pitches and well manicured surroundings make for a relaxing stay in a lovely environment. Great pubs and restaurants within easy reach. Brilliant!

One of the best sites we’ve stayed on

Old Farm
WOW what a CL site, one of the best we’ve stayed on simply superb. Bob was looking after the site whilst the owners his daughter and son-in-law were away on holiday, and what a lovely chap he was so helpful and welcoming. The site itself has massive pitches and has a new shower and toilet block that is immaculately clean. There is a charge for the shower, but the owners children benefit from this as pocket money and why not. If you don’t want to pay for a shower then use your own one inside your van we do. Free range eggs are available on site as well again with all profits (£1 for half a dozen) going to the children as pocket money, what a superb idea from the owners. So all In all a SUPERB site just go and enjoy it
