Facilities spotlessly clean. Staff brilliantly helpful. Pitches for every type of camper. Near lots of amenities. 5 mins from train station. Lots of eateries close by. Dog free and not loads of kids so peaceful and relaxing. Will come again and again.

Decided to get away for 1 night and camping seemed the perfect idea. Chose Ashurst as it was close and still part of the New Forest. Lovely area, staff friendly when arrived and loved seeing the horses/ponies wandering around the campsite. Some cycle routes around the area but would of been nice if there was a map to guide us...

This is very much a family campsite. Lots of children running around and having fun which is brilliant if this is what you want from the campsite but less so for couples/groups without children. There is a curfew at the camp but it seems rules regarding this are sporadically adhered to as many were still up and chatting after this.... More

We are new to camping and we have no comparison but our 3 experiences of this campsite throughout the last 2 months or so have always been positive. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The rules make taking kids easier because it stops others making a lot of noise late into the night and it keeps the horses safe... More

We're a group of ten 24 year olds, mixed men & women, who wanted to enjoy a brief camping weekend away from the city life for a friend's birthday, on August Bank Holiday (a busy time anywhere!). We filled out an online questionnaire, which asked what we wanted in our campsite, and Ashurst came recommended. Upon arrival, we were told... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perfect for seasoned or novice campers, this beautiful campsite is set in a woodland glade, surrounded by the majesty of ancient oak trees. Set on the edge of a small area of woodland known as Ashurst Wood, the wood opens up onto Matley Heath, an expanse of New Forest heathland criss-crossed with tracks ideal for walking or cycling. Facilities Tents Touring caravans Motorhomes Trailer tents Jumbo tent pitches Grassy pitches Seasonal pitches Toilets Showers Washbasins Electric razor sockets Separate disabled facilities Family shower room Family friendly site Chemical toilet disposal Drinking water taps Dishwashing facilities Laundry Ice pack freezing facility Battery charging facility Public transport No pet permitted With countless direct routes into the unique New Forest environment via cycle and footpaths, this is a perfect base for exploring local flora and fauna. From the sanctuary of your tent you may be lucky enough to spot deer during quieter times and see the famous New Forest and Shetland ponies roaming freely. For a walk that takes in everything the New Forest has to offer; from ancient and ornamental woodland, open heathland, grassy lawns, bogs and pine enclosures, Matley Walk is the perfect choice. Lasting a few hours, it begins a few miles east of Lyndurst, the unofficial capital of the New Forest, and gives walkers a great tour around the unique environments of this lovely area. The campsite is a mere five minute stroll to the pretty village of Ashurst, where you will find shops, friendly pubs and restaurants. Local attractions include the Longdown Activity Farm and The New Forest Wildlife Centre. Lyndhurst is just 2.5 Miles away and offers a wealth of historic interest, including the Verderers' Hall as well as shops, pubs and a range of restaurants. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed, however guide dogs are. There is also no electricity, however, there are toilets, a refurbished shower block and a launderette. Pitch types at Ashurst There are 280 standard pitches available at Ashurst. ... more   less
