Fantastic

We spent nine fantastic nights in May 21 at Oak cottage CL our third visit. There are five pitches with plenty of space between pitches. It is quite and peaceful yet central to Christchurch and Lymington. There is a short pleasant walk to Highcliffe castle and beach. A local pub is within walking distance. Sue and John have worked hard to make visitors feel safe during the Covid pandemic supplying hand gel and encouraging visitors to give each other space. Sue always gives a warm welcome and has excellent local knowledge which she is happy to share. Keep up the good work Sue and John See you soon Louise and Andy

Another lovely holiday.

We have enjoyed another lovely holiday at Oak Cottage. Always a warm welcome with a useful information pack. The site is great for access to the sea & the Forrest with plenty to explore & we found some lovely walks with the dog. This site is certainly on our list to visit regularly.

A little disappointed

Before I continue I must say that there is nothing wrong with the site itself or Sue it's owner! The thing is, its maybe just us, but we had this site in mind for ages because of the walk to the beach. When we arrived, we really thought the entrances to the wooded area was at the site itself but it isn't, its walk on a main road, about a quarter of a mile, then down a lane. There is only a short piece of woodland before walking across more roads to get there. This is not ideal when walking dogs. Needless to say we didn't do the walk again. However, the site is very central to lots of places but probably too much in the thick of things for us. It was quiet, train noise didn't bother us in the slightest. If you don't have animals then you would probably enjoy your stay here.

Little Gem!

Why haven't I found this gem of a place before?? Everything you need close by, beach, pub, buses, and in my case family. Very dog friendly, welcoming and really looking forward to returning very soon. Thank you Sue & John x

LOVELY SITE

Well what a wonderful little site this is and has everything you would need. Only 5 plots on site which was absolutely prefect for us. Each plot has so much room we managed to get our windbreakers up. We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome from Sue with a information pack which we found very useful. From walking to the beach to the local pub and take away deliveries. Sue was so friendly to us and our hairy son and ensure our stay was comfortable throughout the 3 days we were there. We had fish and chips delivered to site on the first night which I have to say were absolutely outstanding and the best we have tasted for a very long time. The site is in a lovely location Chewton Glen Hotel just up the road, local pub 5 min walk and the walk to the beach is roughly 20 minutes. We enjoyed it that much we have re-booked for August. Thank you again Sue and keep up the good work

Wonderful Site

Really nice site and very warm welcome from Sue. Quiet and peaceful and very well cared for. Everything you would expect from a quality site. We booked as we had bought tickets for the James Martin Cookery School ( The Kitchen at Chewton Glen) which was only a 7 min walk away. We enjoyed it so much we will definitely be back as it’s by far the closest site. Nice walk to the beach too and a nice pub just round the corner. You won’t find better than this....... Thanks again to the owners who made our 2night stay with them very special. Richard and Toni Jones

hidden gem

Were met by Sue - who had an information pack with her about local places to go, contacts etc. Lovely location with a nice walk to the beach. Lots of offers of help when my back went and my wife was doing stuff on her own. A great CL which we look forward to returning to. Absolutely no problem with owners dog - it was always inside their cottage and there are warning signs up that it is a nippy dog.

Beware of owners dog!!!

If you book this site please beware of the site owners dog!! We ended up at A and E! Owner was very dismissive of incident and told me not to bother with A and E! Incident has left my leg scarred!!! Police involved! We would not stay here again. Would not recommend this site to anyone!

Response from the Club:

We are very sorry to hear of your experience. This CL was closed for a period of time after the incident. However, following the owner carrying out a full risk assessment and putting a range of measures in place the site is now open again for members.

Another lovely holiday at Oak Cottage

We have just returned from our 3rd holiday at Oak Cottage and have booked for two weeks again next year. Sue is very friendly ,informative and welcoming. The site is excellent value for money,at £14 per night in a pricey area of the country. After many holidays in both the New Forest and Bournemouth areas, we now favour it as our "go to site". It's so convenient for visits to places all along the coast from Lymington to Poole. The Walkford pub is just up the road with seating areas inside and out and reasonably priced. Highcliffe castle on the way to Mudeford has beautiful grounds and a zig zag path down to the beach. All in walking or cycling distance . The owners have done a brilliant job over the lockdown to generally neaten up the pitches and move the water tap closer to the pitches. We love it here !Such a relaxing holiday Thank you Sue & John Glynis and Nick
