“Good base for New Forest and coast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

We stayed in a platinum caravan which was well worth the extra paid. Great decking area with patio table and chairs. We had great weather so ate on the veranda in the sun for most evenings. The fixtures and fittings were of high quality with full size fridge and three drawer freezer, dishwasher, microwave and double oven. We got toiletries and welcome pack with milk tea, coffee dishwasher tabs, washing up liquid, sponge and cloth and bin liners to start you off. Loved the lounge area with proper settee and chairs and 32 inch tv which swivelled to be in the dining kitchen if you wanted to watch tv whilst eating at the table. Main bedroom was a good size with small tv and ensuite loo. Comfy beds, couldn't feel the springs and no roll togeher which we sometimes find in caravan beds. Shower was hot and powerful.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night which was ok, but wasn't tempted to try again. The golf course on site was great and open basically when it was light! While I had a lie in, hubby played an hours golf, and while I sunbathed in the evening or prepared dinner, he was golfing again. All in all a great week, with plenty to occupy us around and about. Will certainly consider Hoburne if we want to stay in this area again.

This was our second trip to hoburne bashley & this year had lovely weather. We stayed in a gold caravan. I think there are one or two niggly things that need correcting - says you are meant to get soap. Last year I had to ask and got some bought to us. This year I took my own as couldn't be bothered to ask again (seems petty but why list if it is not available). The blind in the ensuite bathroom was a replacement & only just fitted the window but it fitted which I suppose is the main, however no attempt to cover previous blind holes. The towel hooks were only attached to the wall with one screw instead of two & with towels being quite weighty think this needs sorting. The main problem we had was the main bedroom bed was very uncomfortable. Even my husband commented and we said we could feel the springs. Didn't do anything about it as couldn't imagine them saying we will replace the mattress. All in all, we would come again as it is brilliant value for money, has a playground for my little one, has a shop (a little expensive but that is what you expect from an on site shop). In the main area, the swimming pool is a lot better, there is a water play area which my 2 year old loved. Shame the outside adults pool was closed. Also next to the soft play area there is a little bus that you put 50p in for a ride which wasn't working. No out of order sign - another parent said she asked at reception & they responded yes we know it doesn't work it didn't work yesterday & we have just left it! We had to ask reception to send maintenance to come & put a new bulb in the walk in wardrobe & the response time was brilliant - first thing next morning. The maintenance guy also had to climb over the veranda as we kept the gate locked to stop any escapees! We had also asked for the beds to be removed from one of the bedrooms as we had our own travel cot and this had been done which was very helpful. Not sure if we will be back next year as might try a different part of the country but hoburne definitely on our return list

I have stayed at Hoburne Bashley 2-3 times every year for the past 15years we normally stay in a private static during Easter as we have the family holiday then but the rest of the time we stay in our tourer on the touring pitches we always stay on there premier pitches as for a couple of pounds more you don't need to worry about emptying your waste water or top up water regularly we always find the pitches well maintained and shower blocks are always clean and tidy as to the facilities we always enjoy the swimming pool and the new refurbishment is very nice and modern, Hoburne staff are always pleasant and friendly i have never had a member of staff be rude to me. There are lots of other things to do on site you can hire a bike at reasonable cost and explore the new forest or head the other way and explore the coast Bashley is ideally situated for either, maps are provided on request, if you want to stay on-site you have crazy golf at only £1/£2 per person we have a great time competing against each other you also have a lovely children's park and for those interested golf Bashley has it all. I would recommend Bashley to anyone who asks and look forward to many more holidays there

Our family stayed in a gold standard caravan for the easter weekend this year
We have stayed at Hoburne parks in the past but with our tourer...
Caravan was beautiful, spotless clean throughout, equipped with washing up bits and sachets of tea/coffee/sugar which i thought was a good touch!
We all love Hoburne Devon, cannot fault the place, plenty to do come rain or shine
Entertainment good, Bingo, plus kids bingo :)
It was our boys birthday during our stay, the entertainment team made a big fuss of our boys which they loved, got pictured with "Sammy" + gang and also had certificates
soft play area is good, decent size, our kids love it
On site food is lovely but they cook on demand so can wait for approx 20mins
Highly recommended place
Will be back this summer with our tourer

We returned to Hoburne Bashley for the second year in a row with our touring caravan. We were disappointed that the outdoor poor refurbishment was not complete, though we did get an email in the week prior to our visit to let us know of the situation. We had problems with the free wifi offered in the reception area, we had to obtain a little slip each time we wanted access and most of the time were unable to log on, as self employed business people this is valuable to us as we need to check emails etc regularly and there is no 3G coverage in the area at all. We felt that the touring area of the park was not as looked after as it was last year, and this would make us think twice about booking again in the future.

I took my wife and 1 year old to Bashley as I used to go when I was a kid. I am pleased that Bashley Park is still the same great Caravan Park I remember. The Pool has recently been refurbished and my child isn't that much of a fan of swimming, however he absolutely loved the new pool. The temperature was warm and he could run in the shallow bit and play safely. Also loved the new wet play area. The changing facilities were also great so well done Bashley. I was a little disappointed the main entertainment room wasn't used, but I guess we did visit during a quiet period. We had a silver caravan which was clean but on reflection wish we went for a Gold caravan as we would have found the decking area on these good. We did a walk around and the park to have a nose around. It is really nice and clean and some caravans are really nice, the woodland area is fab. I didn't know you could request where you wanted to stay so I think on booking they should explain this and prompt you to see if any specific area of the park you would like or if you are not bothered (Maybe put a plan of the site on the website to help here). Also the 4pm check in was a little negative as on a short break this makes the first day a bit of a waste as have to hang around waiting to get in you caravan (although you can use the facilities if arrive early and your caravan is not ready). All in all a great caravan park of high quality and will look to visit again!
