Why stay here ...

Meadow Bank Farm is located in Netley Marsh, a small village to the west of Southampton on the A336 Ringwood Road.

The site is situated at the end of a long driveway off the Ringwood Road, which can be found about 100 yards past The New Forest Motor Company, a small second hand car dealer business.

Although a quiet site in rural surroundings it is situated about 2 miles from Junction 2 on the M27 and it is a 5 minute drive to enter the New Forest. It is only a 20 minute drive to Southampton City Centre.

There is a local pub, The White Horse within a 5 minute walk from the site and a Morrisons superstore is a 5 minute drive. The local shops in Totton are quite comprehensive and are about 5 minute away by car and there is an excellent Fish and Chip shop in walking distance.

The nearest beach is a 25 minute drive at Leepe Country Park, an ideal dog walking area with lovely views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. Calshot is a similar distance away. More sandy beaches can be found along the coast towards Bournmouth, for example, Highcliffe which can be reached in about 30 minutes.

The site is quite flat and comprises of 5 hard standing pitches, which are all accessible from the driveway. During the summer months there are also 2 grass pitches available. All the pitches have 10 amp EHU's. The Caravan Site is part of a 4 acre meadow that is also home to 3 resident horses.

Facilities available are: a wooden building for the chemical toilet, waste and recycling bins and 2 separate drinking water taps. There is a single toilet and shower facility which is open at the discretion of management.

The current owners, Tim and Catherine Hood purchased the property in May 2016 and have made many improvements to the whole site.

Meadow Bank Farm CL is open all year round. Whilst it does not have facilities for children, they are welcome if supervised by their parents and well behaved dogs are also welcome.

Shame we were not allowed to use the showers!

Meadow Bank Farm
A pleasant site close to New Forest attractions. Pitches beside stabling and paddocks. Easy walks into the countryside. Sadly, despite Caravan club announcing that showerand toilet facilities should now be open to us, the owners failed to open theirs to us upon our request. If we were paying a reduced rate then I would have understood that it was uneconomical to have them open but we had paid the full rate and at one time there were 4 units on the site.

Pleasant Site and easy access

Meadow Bank Farm
A pleasant site so convenient to Southampton and Portsmouth. Off the main road but still an easy access. Liked the electric gate, on arrival press gate button and Tim lets you in, you do get the magic number once checked in. The directions are spot on, but it would be easy to miss the entrance to the driveway off the road, as its not clearly marked, so take care. Perhaps a Caravan and Motor Home sign would be useful. This is a neat tidy site, quiet and spacious. We liked it.

A good hidden CL

Meadow Bank Farm
This CL is tucked away in lovely countryside and situated on the edge of the New Forest. It is close to the many attractions in the area including Exbury Gardens, Bucklers Hard and Beaulieu Motor Museum. For those interested in boats, Lymington and Calshot are also not far away. The site owners are friendly and helpful and the site facilities are good. We have just spent a very enjoyable and relaxing five days there and look forward to our next visit. A meal at the White Horse (5 mins walk) made a lovely end to our stay.

Lovely setting

Meadow Bank Farm
Lovely setting with a pretty garden including a tree swing and brook nearby together with grazing horses. Clean and quiet with very good recycling facilities. The owner Tim was very friendly and helpful. Access to nearby villages in the New Forest was easy and cycling in Denny Lodge a sheer delight. The site layout was a little cramped with some confusion on arrival of where to place the van, so might need rejigging. A very enjoyable stay.

Great CL site

Meadow Bank Farm
This CL site is lovely. We stayed here the first week in July when lockdown was eased. The owners are fantastic, very friendly and helpful. The site is very quite and peaceful and in a lovely setting looking out onto fields and paddock. There is a wonderful corner of the site that has seating and rope swing, our daughter loved it. There is also a labyrinth in the grass to find your way around. There are shower and toilet facilities together with laundry room but these were not in use due to covid19. Security gate entry by code means the site is very secure and the site is close to M27 and New forest for visitors wishing to explore.
