Hoburne Bashley
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We took our touring caravan for a short weekend break at Hoburne Bashley in early October after booking at the last minute.

As soon as we arrived on site we were welcomed by a member of staff who helped us get our caravan on to the pitch. Unfortunately, our electric cable was too short to reach the hook up, but we were moved to another pitch in closer proximity to the hook up in a matter of minutes. A 25 metre cable is definitely needed at this site!

The touring area is very nice with plenty of space for caravan, car and awning and has hedges separating each individual pitch. The shower blocks are situated close by and were themselves clean and tidy. All in all, I really can't find anything to grumble about when it comes to the touring field. It's a well kept area with a very helpful warden close by.

The facilities throughout the site are great with plenty to keep you and the kids amused. Outside there is a very large sports field with pitch and putt, crazy golf, archery, a football pitch, tennis courts, a very nice children's adventure playground and even a golf course. The swimming pool is great with a flume and even a sauna in the changing area. However, the pool is due for renovation this year and is going to be replaced with a straightforward rectangular pool with no water slides. The outdoor pool was closed during our visit, but looked to be a good size.

The entertainment complex has everything you would expect to find on a site like this with restaurant, bar, arcade, bowling and evening entertainment. We ate in the restaurant on one occasion and the food was perfectly acceptable and reasonably priced. In fact, everything at Hoburne Bashley is reasonably priced. If, like us, you are used to staying at Haven or Parkdean sites, you will be pleasantly surprised by how much cheaper things are at Hoburne Bashley. From the arcade machines - to the drinks in the bar, the prices are not going to bankrupt you!

The evening entertainment was good with plenty for the kids and a very good singer/comedian on the Friday evening who went down a storm.

All in all, Hoburne Bashley has a good old fashioned charm about it. It's not as modern or on the scale of Haven or Parkdean sites, but it has a lovely atmosphere that reminded me of family holidays from when I was a child back in the 80s. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful throughout our stay and are looking forward to visiting the Hoburne site in Torbay in the future.

Room Tip: If you're touring, make sure you bring a 25 metre cable!

Firstly I must thank Hoburne. Originally due to come in May but taken ill two days before our holiday and with no insurance. Hoburne let us change the date, subject to a reasonable admin fee. It well worth booking direct with Hoburne as entertainment passes are included and if there are any problems they are on hand to put right without delay.
Went for a platinum caravan. Bed supremely comfy.Very high spec (2 televisions, central heating, double glazing and patio with furniture), spotlessly clean, beds made up and towels too plus a small welcome pack.
Bedroom was really good size but the kitchen lacked work surface space and storage. Okay for the two of us but not for a family. As the layouts of caravans do vary its worth checking prior to booking.
The site is very well laid out with all facilities in the main building. Prices for drinks, food and golf/bowling etc very competitive and despite being late season there was entertainment.
The pool is a little tired and the changing facilities only adequate and the makeover for next season will hopefully result in a 1st class facility.
The park is ideally situated for the New Forest and about 2 miles from the coast. Staff at reception were generally pleasant and helpful.
We would recommend and hope to return next year.

Room Tip: check the layout of your caravan as they do vary

We stayed for a week in August in one of the Silver caravans. The accommodation was excellent, the only minor negatives were the size of the TV in the lounge (tiny for the size of van) and needed a bigger saucepan in the kitchen (had to cook pasta for 4 of us in 2 batches). The facilities on site are brilliant, especially the pools. A lot cheaper to stay here than Haven and having stayed at a number of Haven sites before, I preferred Hoburne. Not quite so commercialised. Would definitely go back again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Imagine a fun-filled caravan park inside the boundaries of the New Forest National Park... waking each morning to the sounds of nature, knowing everything you could possibly need is right on your doorstep. Welcome to Hoburne Bashley – with its acres of wide open space, it’s the perfect holiday park for touring caravans and family holidays in the New Forest. Fancy a game of crazy golf... or taking things more seriously on our nine hole, par three golf course? Or how about taking to the Park’s tennis court or football field – or knocking down some pins at the Hoburne Bowl? For the kids there’s the Sammy Seahorse Club – and (for the kid in you), there’s an exhilarating flume in our indoor pool, plus splashing opportunities galore in our heated outdoor swimming and paddling pools. You could of course just go exploring: the enigmatic expanse of the New Forest one way, the sparkling ocean the other. And if all that tires you out, relax in the Park’s sauna or steam room, and imagine... well, anything. ... more   less
