What we love about this site is the lack of facilities. There is drinking water and chemical disposal, and thats it! Pitch where you like and relax. You are surrounded by nature, birds, horses, cows, deer etc.....close by are lovely walks through the woodland. Lyndhurst is about 2.5 miles away and there are plenty of places to get refreshments and sit and watch the world go by!!! The wardens are very friendly and can often be seen wandering around the site meeting and chatting with everyone. If you want all the mod cons this is not the site for you but if you love nature and somewhere to relax that is stunning.....Denny Wood is the place. Our favourite campsite and if the sun is out we will be there!!
