Road trip 2019

Lovely site. Clean facilities. Flat pitches Water and grey waste direct to each pitch. Mr & Mrs Castle loaned our friends a hose as theirs was too short. Sunny spacious pitches that are all private and discreet. Site perfect for visiting the new forest; beaches; castles and Sailsbury and it's wonderful cathedral. Parked just up from Bournemouth at Durley Chine Beach to swim it was less busy and loos to change in. It's not dog friendly in the summer and it's a zig zag concrete slope down and a few steps. There are several dog friendly beaches that our pals used and easy to look up. Calshot Castle is small but full of world war one and two history. There is a vellodrome; dry ski slope & lots of climbing walls all in one of the aircraft hangers here. The beach has paddle boards; kayaks and windsurfing to hire. It's a stoney beach but the view of Portsmouth and the isle of white is stunning. Especially from the castle. Rhinefield ornamental drive is a road that cuts through the forest. You can park for free here and walk on the gravel flat footpaths through the forest. To see the tall trees and imagine the world history that they would share if they could talk. When we asked at the caravan site where's the nearest pub. We was told the Churchill. Not so the sports and cricket/tennis club next door was approx 150 yards on the right out the gate. A warm welcome even when a private function was on. Cheeper bear in the area by at least a pond a pint. 2 pints of cider £6.40 as opposed to £9.90 at the fighting cocks which is worth a visit to see the donkeys. You can swim in the river at Fordingbridge bridge the fish are interesting too. Would we stay again yes definitely there is so much more to see. One last thing the washing machine and dryer take old pond coins so remember to ask Mr & Mrs Castle to change you're pounds before you load the machine. Lovely site
