Perfect stay in the New Forest

Having not long got our first caravan this was the first CL stay that I had arranged having had fond memories of staying on many with my parents in my younger days and it couldn't have been any better! The site looked perfect when I read the description and reviews, booking was easily sorted via email. The site is a short distance up a gravel track (Randalls Lane), don't worry if you miss the first turn, I did, as there is a second by the garage. Upon arrival we were greeted by Andy who took us up to the site and explained the pitches and facilities as well as some info about the local area, walks from the site etc., very helpful. The site is on quite a slope but each pitch is terraced into the slope though we still needed a levelling ramp and some blocks for the legs to get it right. The pitches are partially hard standing with a gravel track leading to them but I could imagine it might be troublesome if it were particularly wet without 4x4. That said we somehow managed to book the hottest week of the year to date so no worries on that front. Luckily the hedge and trees behind the pitches offered some shade later in the day. The site was perfect, so peaceful and scenic. Lovely watching the bats flying about in the evenings and listening to the owls. The kids enjoyed the field as there was plenty of room to play and a bit shady up the far end which was welcome. The walk up the lane at the back of the site leads to a stunning viewpoint to watch the sunset and you can walk (or cycle) all the way into Burley and beyond if you wish. The area was perfect too and we had a good mix of forest activities as well as plenty of time on the beach which was ideal given the weather. Welcoming owners, beautiful site, good mix of stuff to do, will probably be back someday! Thanks for having us.
