Black is generally really good, with good facilities and excellent pitches.A big improvement since it was 'renovated' a year or so back. The location is also excellent, being in centre of the New Forest is ideal for those who have dogs, enjoy walking, cycling etc. Brockenhurst Village is a (relatively) short 35 minute walk away.
We have noticed however that some of the ‘wardens’ are sometimes less than friendly. This possibly because this site in particular is much busier than usual at this time of year. I guess many people are unable to access their usual summer caravan trips to Europe’s sunnier climes and as a result have had to stay in the UK.
One other concern on this site. We noticed that the ‘wardens’ here have a policy of cutting the grass around the pitches on regular basis. Nothing wrong with that, except that to do so they remove campers Electric Hook Up lines when they are away, and then cut the grass. Some time later the wardens plug the EHU cable back in. This risks ‘tripping’ the caravan internal electrics, and is not recommended as far as I am ware
Imagine going out on a hot day, and returning a few hours later to find that your fridge and freezer had been off for some time (not all automatically switch to gas) and that the deliciously cold ice cream you were looking forward to is now a melted puddle, as are the rest of the contents of your fridge / freezer.
So, be aware.
