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.

What a wonderful place.

Meadow Bank Farm
We stayed here in August 2021 & honestly this place is an absolute gem of a site! It's beautifully kept with all the facilities you could possibly want, from piping hot showers to laundry facilities. Very close to a couple of great pubs too! The owners were lovely, warm and welcoming and so very helpful. The pitches are well spaced and level hard standings with EHU Entry is at the end of a lane where you'll encounter a large high electric metal gate operated by key pad/intercom and therefor felt incredibly secure. The proximity of things to do around the area is amazing, we spent most of our time cycling around The New Forest with the occasional trip out on our motorbike to explore further afield. The coast & The New Forest is only a short drive away as is Southampton and there are a number of large supermarkets close by too. All that said the site was so peaceful & open it felt like we were in the middle of the countryside miles from anywhere! TV reception was excellent as was 4g data. We would have loved to stay longer but unfortunately we had to move on to meet with friends, but we will definitely return... but please don't spread the word about how great this place is or it will be full next time we want to visit!!!

Excellent site for the New Forest

Meadow Bank Farm
Site directions easy to follow, received text from Tim with code and pitch number. Welcomed when we arrived and shown to pitch along with information. Pitch size great with the ability to site it whichever way we wanted taking into account the grass and hard standing. We didn't use the washroom, toilet or laundry facilities but plenty did so cannot comment. Recycling and chemical waste indoors unusual but very clean and tidy, so appreciated, on hand sanitisers. Drinking water central although only one tap working due to pressure problems. Unfortunately Goodies chip bar wasn't far away! which meant my husband had to try them (i'm not a lover) first night he came back and said " I'd have thought they'd make their own batter as it was in packet!", however best batter on his haddock he'd tasted and chips were crispy and didn't stick together, needless to say he had to make the most of them. The meals I made in the freezer stayed there and came home and I had my own meals in the evening!! Let's say he's a bit of cycling to do. Several beach sides were in easy reach Netley Abbey beach beautiful on the estuary, Eling pretty watermill and harbour, Lakeside park and of course the New Forest national park. We like going for picnics, walks and cycling so it suited us and we had plenty of places to explore and go back to . Supermarket nearby if needed with petrol station. Tim and Catherine have created a lovely log cabin/summerhouse which is stunning with pool, with the weather we had we could have done with a swim in it. We enjoyed our 12 night stay as we were meeting friends who were at the same site for a few days whilst we were there. Our only negative was dog owners not keeping dogs on leads as requested this is not a slight on Tim or Catherine just campers not respecting others or the site.

great little site

Meadow Bank Farm
This site is tucked away from the main road down a small lane but close enough to local pubs and fish shop. TIm was very helpful and looks after the site very well close to ferry ports will be using again.

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.
