Ideal weekend away

If you want a weekend away & leave your vehicle on site then this is the place. Superb café within the garden centre, producing lovely locally sourced food and a Sunday Lunch like no other. A well stocked farm shop which can easily cater for your weekend's meal requirements...A foodie's paradise. Oh and did I say about the delicious wine produced from their own grapes. I guess once you've stocked up from the farm shop you need some exercise. Well just a short distance along the road you can be walking across the New Forest moors & woodland. We took a 7 mile circular walk incorporating Brockenhurst & the sister tearoom of the café on site. If you like exercising on two wheels there are plenty of bike paths/trails across the Forest. All in all a lovely weekend enjoying all that Setley Ridge has to offer.

great cl

A lovely cl in a great area - very easy access off the A337 - which is a busy road but you can't hear it from the site. One criticism would be the poor signage onto the cl but other than that nothing to complain about. There is a garden centre and tea rooms and a well stocked farm shop. Also free wine tasting. Water point and elsan are about 30 yards away near the farm shop.

Idyllic place of often repeated return

Discovered this idyllic spot by accident last year and have returned four times already with another in the diary. Yes, it is basic but if that is what you like it's perfect. Yes, there are commercial concerns but they do not impinge upon your peace and solitude unless you want them to - first time we went there we did not leave the site for the whole 3 days, enjoying the produce of the shop (including the wine from the Vineyard), a meal in the cafe and even purchased a lovely plant for a gift. Paul is extremely welcoming and attentive to the needs of his guests. And how can one complain about having to fetch water when to do so is through luscious vineyards. A site for people with soul. If you want everything on tap pass on by please and leave us to enjoy.

Our stay in the New Forest

Our first experience of this site was there was no notice pointing the way to the CL site from the entrance. Though the Vineyard and Farm shop are well signposted it was unclear where the CL site(s) was located. Having asked the way we were warmly met by Paul, who was busy harvesting the grapes. He informed me the water and chemical waste point were behind the shop some distance away from the site. There is no water point on the actual CL site. I personally hate carrying water whilst on holiday and I think CL (and the Clubsites) could do more to cater for modern caravans that are designed to be plumbed into a tap. The site was expensive at £16 per night for what was provided. Having stayed on superior CL sites this year for £12 per night with plumbed in water, electricity, waste provision on beautifully maintained sites I thought that this was not value for money. The site is not set up for the caravanner but is part of a complex of money making business ventures. Though the vineyard had some attraction I cannot say the site was attractive as it had many run down tired looking buildings surrounding it. The site was quiet. Not a great site in our opinion just mediocre. We left early.

One of a kind

A local bolthole for us. Have spent many weekends here, Paul and Haley are great. The site is away from the road, never hear any traffic. Shop has always been good and now with the addition of a tearoom on site. Shop sells the local wine and other local produce, good for cheese, bickies and wine if it's a wet afternoon in the van! Good, safe walk to the Filly Inn and further afield into the forest. Good fish and chip shop in Brockenhurst. The view down the vines is something else and you won't find this outlook at any other CL. See you again soon. :-)

Sheltered Gem

Stayed at the vineyard for 9 nights (late April 2017). The site is really sunny and sheltered, good for the vines and the CL visitors. Although it is close to the shop, tea room, nursery and the main road it is very quiet and when on site you really do not know they are there. The site is really well placed centrally for the area with lots of forest close by and easy access to attractions if you want them. Roydon woods nature reserve is an easy walk or cycle from the site and is quieter than the main forest but a very pleasant place to visit and at the end of April had a good show of bluebells and primroses. The coast is not far away and I can recommend the beaches around Highcliffe with great views to the Isle of Wight. A great location. We will return.

Something Different

What a wonderful little site. Peacefully set amongst the vines with easy access and plenty of space. Peace and quiet away from barking dogs and children very welcome over the bank holiday weekend. Warm and friendly welcome from the owner. Good farm shop. Tea room and wine from the vineyard. Lovely! The chemical waste disposal area could be cleaner! Must return when the vines are in full fruit

Great place to stay for Forest & Coast

If you want to see the New forest and be in easy reach of the coast this site will do you fine. Great walks in the forest are all around you. We loved the woods near Beaulieu with the village a little gem. The walk from the village down stream is a must.  Lymington is a bustling port with ferries to the Isle of Wight if you can afford it! The Marina is an interesting place to walk around and the old Lymington is Quant. Brockenhurst in a nice village with two supermarket stores in the main street or go to Lymington for your main shop if needed.  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the vineyard. The Garden Nursery, Shop, and Cafe on site were all very pleasant. Paul the owner was busy bottling wine most days (which you can purchase in the shop) and always had time to chat as with most of the staff on site. Very enjoyable and of course the weather was fantastic... Hot Hot Hot!!

Lovely Site

Access is very easy off the A337 and you can't miss it being clearly signed Setley Ridge vineyard. Just drive past the greenhouses and there is a board telling you which pitch you are on. Great level grass area to pitch on. As others have said road noise really isn't an issue. Fantastic local produce in the Farm Shop and the wine is rather nice as well....free wine tasting! There is also a WC that you can use during shop/garden centre opening hours. Easy access to the Isle of Wight with ferry port less than 5 miles from the site. We took the car over for the day and it cost £58...a good day out.
