We have visited this campsite several times before so we knew what to expect.
We arrived on the Friday evening of half term - not realising it was half term when we booked! Group of 3 couples (all adults) and were panicking it would be over whelmed with children but we were pleasantly surprised. Our friends had arrived first and found a beautiful spot down to the right side overlooking the field by the 2nd toilet block. Stunning. The clientèle of the campsite is definitely better than other places we have been. Everyone respecting others.
Beautiful area, camping in the forest, no assigned camping by ugly white lines and designated space where you are scared to go over the white line! Horses roam freely, and easy access into the forest for cycling. Brockenhurst a short drive/cycle away and we walked back one night after a meal.
The queues for the showers are ridiculous. They must be able to add another shower block. Even the mens had a queue of 5 people - unheard of or so I thought! The shower button in one cubicle stayed on for literally 5 seconds before turning off which is a pain. A few of the taps weren't working.
An enjoyable stay though and will return for sure. Would be nice if they gave a discount to returning customers.
